Lots of women talk about finding our tribe, surrounding ourselves with women who lift each other up and cultivate a sense of community, joy, and strength while we navigate work, motherhood, and all the other adventures life throws our way. I could not be more thankful for the women who have supported me while raising little ones and building my own creative business. [...]
Though I enjoy all the seasons here in Colorado for family portraits and weddings, fall is my most favorite time of all. Each year when autumn rounds around, I feel invigorated by the gorgeous colors and scents. Although the foliage is quietly preparing for winter, the leaves go out with a blaze of glory, and that last burst of color leaves me with a feeling of cre[...]
Family photos captured at home always make great memories of day to day life that forever remind us of the simple things closest to our hearts. And sometimes, you have a cool family farm that's a big part of everyday life, like Kimberlee. She owns Flower Lion Farms just north of Fort Collins, Colorado. They raise goats, ducks, horses, and offer farm camp and riding[...]
Colorado gives us incredible opportunities for year-round family photo sessions. However, my two favorite times of year are fall and spring. The landscape in autumn is quiet and offers lots of warm light, which makes for excellent portraits. I think we timed the colors JUST right for my family session with the Bakers!
There's no place like home and the comfort it brings. It's why I always deeply appreciate being asked to spend time in a family's home for a photo session. I feel it's a great honor and gift! For this family portrait, I stopped by for an afternoon of exploring the flower gardens and playing in the grass with the girls and their parents around the property. Surround[...]
Photography holds a special place in my heart. It was my first passion and still really lights me up, no matter what my day ahead may hold. Now that I have two little ones, my passion has expanded to include their crazy, unpredictable little hearts. Although they keep me busy from sun up to sun down, and I wouldn't have it any other way! It's also why I was so happ[...]
Taking a family vacation is always a fun adventure. Packing up the car and camper, heading to new uncharted locations with siblings and seeing parts of the world for the first time together as a family builds life-long memories you share for years to come. This beautiful family recently relocated to Texas from Switzerland, and took their first official family vacat[...]
Photographing families as they grow through the years is one of my favorite experiences to witness as a photographer. Creating memories each season is such an honor to be a part of, too. I first met Allison last year, when her little one was just 6 months. This summer, we met up along the river for a maternity and family photo session to document this [...]
Sunday morning at home with family playing, relaxing and hanging together – is there anything better? How about documenting these special memories and close-knit times with a little help from your family photographer? Each year, the Cate family invites me to spend a morning with them to capture the kids playing in their yard, hanging on the front stoop or swinging [...]
As a portrait photographer my favorite part of doing six month sessions is the opportunity to see how much a baby can change in such a short period of time. Yet, the time span between newborn to baby seems like it happens almost over night! I first met with Timiry to take pictures of her newborn daughter, Everly, and was so excited to capture new [...]
Lee Martinez Park is just north of downtown Fort Collins and is by far one of my most favorites locations for portrait sessions. The open space surrounding is beautiful and river which runs just north along the trail makes for an excellent evening stroll. It was a pleasure meeting and photographing family time Laura and Jake!
I recently had the pleasure of meeting and spending a morning with Sarah, Brent and their beautiful daughter Rumi. I joined them during the peak of changing fall colors along the Front Range. We explored the meaningful spots on their property in Lyons to take in the one-of-a-kind, gorgeous views and to documenting their new journey as first-time parents. The honor wa[...]
I crossed paths with Rachel through wedding industry connections a few years ago. Since then, I've had the pleasure and opportunity to document beautiful, special moments of Rachel and her family. This summer she invited me up to the family cabin nestled along the Laramie River for an afternoon with the LeBeau clan - and it was so much fun! The pro[...]
With each new season, I look forward to spending time with the families I photograph. It's great to hear about new milestones and catch up on all the exciting adventures from the past year. I recently met up with Carrie Visintainer and her beautiful family to photograph some fun moments in the glow of the afternoon sun. Summer along the front range has such great c[...]
The Seeboth family recently made the trek out from Austin, Texas for a big Colorado wedding day celebration which will showcased on the blog in a few short weeks. While enjoying the festivities, we met up for a family portrait session along the front range here in Colorado. Natalie and I both shoot and love film photography. She has a fabulous wedding and family [...]
Leah and Alex graciously invited me into their home on a Sunday to spend a little time with them and daughter Adeline. We read books, baked cookies and played outside. It was the perfect way to begin a Sunday.. Leah owns the Painted Poppy here in Fort Collins and has an amazing eye for design. Her furniture pieces are amazing!
