It was still a little bit summery when I met up with Emily, John, Harper, and Phin just outside of Colorado Springs for their family photos. What a beautiful evening we had! I always enjoy my time with the Osburn family and this shoot was no exception. There was one dicey moment, however, when Phin told his dad that he was mad at me for making him stand still. I made it up to him with plenty of time to run through the grass and explore the barn. (The outside of the barn, that is. Heaven knows what’s inside that thing.)
Bath time is still a favorite time in our house. Fill the tub with warm water and bubbles and I know my boy will be happy and content for a long as I’ll let him stay there. Sometimes, I get to sit and watch him play. Sometimes, I listen to the splashes and giggles and happy sounds while I fold laundry from the next room.
For this month’s 5 minute project, I sat and studied him with my lens for a bit. He’s growing up so big, but I still see some baby in his cheeks and curls.
Because this is a part of my 5 minute project, I have to admit that the last shot happened outside the limits of those 5 minutes. But I was just about to put my camera away when I saw those wrinkly piggies and I just couldn’t resist.
The Dille Family participated in the Good Photo mini sessions in early August, and when these boys tumbled out of the car in their bright colors and AMAZING shoes, I was sure I’d never be able to stop taking photos of them. I’m so thankful that I got to meet the Dilles and spend a few moments capturing the unique personalities of each of their boys. Thank you, Dilles, for coming out to support the Carew and Neely families and for playing a role in getting those little ones home to their forever families!
I’ve said it before and I’ll said it again, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it when families get together for special occasions and choose to have their photos taken. Especially families that live in different parts of the country. There is just something special about cousins and siblings reuniting after an extend amount of time apart. And I’m always astounded at the amount of joy I see when grandparents are surrounded by all of the grandchildren at once. It gets me every time.
Happy Labor Day Weekend to you! For this month’s 5 minute project, I spent a little bit of time at the Colorado Springs Balloon Glow – it’s a favorite Labor Day activity around here. Rumor has it, it won’t be around for long and, with a free evening, I couldn’t resist the photo opportunity. Hope you are out and about and enjoying the long weekend too!
Fall is almost here. Can you feel it? It won’t be long until the leaves all change and create that beautiful scenery that the great state of Colorado is known for.
This sweet family of three made sure to take advantage of the Colorado colors on a sunny evening for their family photos last year. I’m not sure why it took my so long to share these, but I thought you might enjoy a little taste today of what the coming season surely holds.
Zac lives in Pennsylvania, but when his family visited Colorado Springs this summer, he decided to have his senior photos taken! Fittingly, he choose to do them at Red Rock Canyon – for a very “Colorado” look! And since the whole family was together enjoying their vacation, we snuck in a few family shots too.
