Celebrating 30 Years [a sibling anniversary surprise]

Posted by on Jun 25, 2015 in Engagement/Couples, Families, Family Photos | 0 comments

I love it when people give photos as gifts and I especially love it when I get to work with my clients to carry out a surprise. Vienna got in touch with me in March because she and her brother, Philip, wanted to do a photo session to surprise their parents for their 30th wedding anniversary. We had so much fun! It makes me so happy to see siblings who are still close friends even as adults. Vienna and Philip have the kid of relationship that I pray my kids will share when they are older!

I’ve been so looking forward to sharing these photos with you, but I had to wait until the cat was out of the bag first! The big anniversary was celebrated a couple of weeks ago, and from what I hear, the gift was a hit!

Thank you, Vienna, for allowing me to be a part of such a special gift. And congratulations to your parents – here’s to 30 more years!

5 Minutes of Waking Up the Baby

Posted by on Jun 2, 2015 in Uncategorized | 1 comment

It’s been a while since I completed a 5 minute project, but this sweet interaction between my two babies yesterday morning presented the perfect opportunity.

These two. They adore each other. Briggs tells me that Geneva is his best friend, and most of the time, the first words out of his mouth in the morning are, “I love you Geneva.”

He loves to sneak into her room as soon as he hears her waking up and he often gets to her before I do. And she gives him all the smiles, giggles, and coos that she’s been storing up all night. It’s just sweet, sweet, sweet for this mama to witness – and I captured just five minutes of it to share with you.

In other news, my girl went on a clothing strike as soon as the temps got above 75 degrees around here. I have a feeling it’s going to be a long, naked summer.

Kyle [Evangelical Christian Academy] Class of 2015

Posted by on May 18, 2015 in Senior Pictures | 0 comments

Kyle is another 2015 senior that I had the privilege of capturing last fall! Kyle will graduate from Evangelical Christian Academy in just a couple of weeks. He also played football for St. Mary’s High School and it was so much fun to photograph him on the field where he spent so many hours for practices and games. I know that he will be missed on that team! And I tell you what, there is not a more picturesque sports field in all of Colorado Springs!

Kyle’s sister Kayla also came along for the shoot and we made sure to include her in a few photos. These two have such a great relationship – when I see them together, I pray that my two kids will be blessed with this kind of friendship as they grow up!

Congratulations, Kyle! I’m eager to see what the Lord has planned for you over the next few years!

The Patrick Family

Posted by on Apr 29, 2015 in Families, Family Photos | 0 comments

I simply cannot believe that my little girl is 3 months old already and that I am back to work. Oh how I have missed shooting – but I do not regret one minute of the time that I took off to make this transition to a family of 4.

I was so excited that this lovely family (and dear friends of mine) ushered me back into photography in early April. I’ve watched this family grow from just the two of them into a family of 5 – and it seems like it happened in the blink of an eye! Such an honor to capture them this year and what a beautiful Colorado evening we had. If you told me that there is a city more beautiful than Colorado Springs, I would find that very hard to believe.

Logan [The Classical Academy Class of 2015]

Posted by on Apr 22, 2015 in Senior Pictures | 0 comments

Logan will graduate from The Classical Academy next month and I was so honored to help him kick off his senior year this past fall with his senior portraits. Logan’s senior session actually started at his sister’s wedding where we got a few shots of him in his tux for the senior yearbook page. Then, just before the leaves changed, we finished up his portraits with a more casual and fun shoot. I loved all of the ideas that Logan and his mom had for his photos and feel like he brought clothes and props that really helped us capture who he is. I especially loved working with his little dog, Willie.

And, of course, we had to end the session with a few shots of mother and son. I tell you what, I CANNOT IMAGINE that the day will come when I’m taking my boy’s senior photos. But, alas, I know it will. Those boys are sure precious to us mamas and I was happy that Julie was game for letting me capture her with her boy.

Are you graduating in 2016? It’s not too early to start thinking about your senior photos! Don’t forget that many yearbooks require photos to be turned in to them by early fall…so don’t wait! I’d love to capture you as you approach your senior year!

If it were up to me, all weddings would be Colorado weddings. I mean, c’mon. You can’t beat the views or the weather offered by summertime in the Colorado mountains. One look at Amber & Cameron’s Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding and I’m sure you’ll agree!

I was honored to assist Melissa Sue Photography in capturing this beautiful event last summer and I’m happy to share it with you today!
