Bear Creek Park Family Photos || The Anderson Family

Posted by on Aug 16, 2016 in Family Photos | 0 comments

Every August, I start really looking forward to fall. Anyone else dreaming of colorful leaves and sweater weather? Since that’s not quite happening outside yet,  I thought I’d bring a bit of fall to your computer screen today! I loved the Anderson Family’s Bear Creek Park Family Photos last year. It’s high time they come out into the blog-o-sphere.

This location never ceases to wow me. It’s beautiful when it’s green. It’s beautiful when the leaves are changing. And I’ve even had some great sessions here during the winter time. I was excited when Holly said she wanted to meet up here – and I was even more excited to meet her three boys. I do so love a session that involves a little stick dragging, a little tree climbing, and a little ninja action.

Thanks for stopping by – and happy viewing. I hope you enjoy this taste of fall on this summery August day!

Lodge at Cathedral Pines Wedding || Justing & Breanna

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in Weddings | 0 comments

There were so many things that I loved about Justin & Breanna’s Lodge at Cathedral Pines wedding. Like the fact that she planned the whole color scheme around her grandmother’s coral necklace and the cereal, yogurt, and mimosa bar that was provided for the guests while the bride and groom took photos. I loved the way Brianna’s sister truly shared in her joy and the moment that Justin first saw his bride walking down the aisle was simply amazing.

As summer comes to an end, I had fun looking back on this wedding that kicked off wedding season for me this year. As aways, it was an honor to play a role in this special day. I love my couples! bride getting ready bride putting on gownsister admiring bridebride doing hair mother watching bridebride putting on makeup mother admiring bridecoral necklacecolorado springs bridesmaidsColorado Springs Wedding photographerlodge at cathedral pines weddingbabies breath bouquetsisters on wedding daybride and bridesmaid bouquetcolorado springs bridebride's bouquetgroom getting ready mother helping groom colorado springs wedding photographergroomsmen at the lodge at cathedral pinescolorado springs groom Wedding at the lodge at cathedral pineswedding party reading wedding programbride walking down the aislegroom seeing bride for the first timewedding at the lodge at cathedral pinesbride and groom holding handssister watching younger sister get marriedlodge at cathedral pines weddingbride and groom leaving ceremonywedding party at the lodge at cathedral pinesbride and groom kissing colorado springs wedding photographercolorado springs wedding photographerbride and groom snugglinglodge at cathedral pines weddingcolorado springs bride and groom bride and groom in black forestbride and groom in black forestlodge at cathedral pines reception white and coral reception decorations colorado springs wedding photographerwedding breakfast bar breakfast bar at weddingbrunch wedding reception creative wedding programbride and groom mugssister giving toastbride and groom laughing toasting the bride and groom groom leading bridecutting the cakecolorado springs wedding photographermother and groom dancing little girls watching bride and groom dancelodge at cathedral pines reception lodge at cathedral pines wedding

The Butler Family || Family Photos at Garden of the Gods

Posted by on Aug 2, 2016 in Families | 0 comments

The Butler family had to say goodbye to Colorado Springs last summer. But, before they left, they made time for a few final family photos at Garden of the Gods. While their roots may be in the south, the Butler family grew from two to four during their time in Colorado Springs and Whitney Anne wanted a location that was iconic to the place where her sons were born.

Garden of the Gods did not disappoint. Does this view ever get old?

Colorado Springs will miss the Butlers, but I’m happy that they took a little piece of us with them. And I’m proud to say that, the last I heard from Whitney Anne, Garden of the Gods is framed and hanging in their bedroom so that she can keep this beauty close to her heart always. Family with two little boysbaby boy in mom's armsGarden of the Gods Family PhotoFamily of Four at Garden of the GodsLittle Boy's tummy peeking out Little boy laughing for cameraLittle boy running at Garden of the GodsMother holding two sonsMom and baby holding handsMother holding baby boy Couple at garden of the godsColorado Springs Family Photoscolorado springs family photoFamily walking at garden of the gods

Five Minute Project || Waking the Baby One Year Later

Posted by on Jul 21, 2016 in Children/Babies, Family Photos | 0 comments

The other morning – at 6:45am – my littles were being especially sweet and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to sneak in and complete a little 5 minute project photo session with them. These photos were taken almost exactly one year after the photos from this post – and I really can’t believe the difference that one year makes.

These two little ones have certainly changed in that short year, but I can honestly say that they still adore each other as much as they did one year ago. Briggs still loves to sneak in a greet his sister as soon as he hears her stirring and he often insists that he must be the one to give her her first kiss of the day. As time keeps marching on, and these babies grow and grow, I hope that their love for one another is one thing that never changes.

Evangelical Christian Academy || Class of 2016 || Nik

Posted by on Jul 7, 2016 in Senior Pictures | 0 comments

Nik graduated from Evangelical Christian Academy this past Spring and I think it’s high time I get around to sharing his senior photos! We squeaked in his session in late fall last year and this location in downtown Colorado Springs was the perfect choice during a time of year when everything is brown. I call this location “under the bridge” and literally have to use that term when I tell people where to meet me. It’s kinda mysterious, right? Or creepy. Either way, it’s a great spot!

We rounded off Nik’s session with a few family portraits. I honestly cannot think of a time when it is more critical to have a family photo than when one of your kids is getting ready to graduate. It’s a time of all things change and transition and growing up and leaving home. I’m so glad the Poli family allowed me to add in a teeny-tiny family session alongside the senior session.

And here’s a fun fact; Evangelical Christian Academy is my Alma Mater. It’s where I met my husband and where I coach volleyball every fall. I have to say that seniors from ECA are particularly exciting for me to capture. Thank you Nik – and Poli Family – for allowing me to play a small role during this exciting time in your lives!

Downtown Colorado Springs || The Buteyn Family

Posted by on May 31, 2016 in Families | 0 comments

For her family photos, Jill wanted color and texture and space to play. I could think of no better place than this little alleyway in downtown Colorado Springs. I’ve shot here many times before, and I love how each family always makes it their own. Although I may repeat this location once or twice a year, no two shoots ever look the same.

The Buteyn family was game for anything and was more than willing to try a few of my goofy ideas. As you’ll see, we had a lot of laughs. (However, I have a feeling that this family laughs together often without my help.)

And if you’re looking for a great summer read, you should look Jill up! She’s a fabulous author with both fiction and non-fiction options to fill your read-this-by-the-pool list! family photos downtown Colorado springs Family of four huggingFamily of four having funFamily photos downtown colorado springsmother's arms around daughtermother kissing daughterbrother and sister hugginggirl looking somberLittle boy with scraped kneeChild portrait colorado springshusband and wife huggingcouple in downtown colorado springscolorado springs family photo

Vista Ridge High School || Class of 2016 || Liz

Posted by on May 23, 2016 in Senior Pictures | 0 comments

Miss Liz is currently a senior at Vista Ridge High School…but not for long! She’ll be graduating in just a few days and I thought I’d share her senior photo session in commemoration of the event!

Liz chose to use a combination of Bear Creek Park and the Manitou Springs Penny Arcade for her senior photo session. I just love how these turned out! They are so bright and colorful – and I do believe a perfect reflection of Liz’s personality. I always know a session is going to be good when I start hearing about the outfit selection process WAY before the actual session. One of my favorite moments of every senior girl’s session is when she opens the trunk of the car and show me all of the options she’s brought along.

Miss Liz, I had a GREAT time with you last fall. I hope that you truly enjoy your graduation celebration this week and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for you. This is such an exciting time in your life and I’m thankful to have played this small role in capturing it!
