Colorado Springs Lifestyle Newborn Session || The Osburn Family

Posted by on Sep 20, 2016 in Children/Babies, Families, Family Photos, Little Ones | 0 comments

It is truly amazing to be given the honor of capturing a family as they grow and change. This year, I got to capture the Osburn family while they anticipated their little one’s arrival, as they welcomed Evangeline into the world, and then finally during a lifestyle newborn session when sweet Evan was just three weeks old.

There’s nothing like a household that has just welcomed a new baby. The changing and feeding and crying is all a part of the day-to-day – and so is the snuggling and kissing and shushing. Add in two very excited older siblings and, well, there’s just a lot of energy in the house.

That sweet newborn phase – it’s hard and overwhelming and wonderful all at once. And it’s so, so brief. Thank you, John and Emily, for allowing me into your home to capture just a little bit of this precious and fleeting time in the story of your family. I love you all!

Colorado Springs Family Photos || The Tharp Family

Posted by on Sep 12, 2016 in Families, Family Photos | 0 comments

Last month, the Tharp family said good-bye to Colorado Springs and moved across the country to a new adventure. But, before they did, they wanted to do a set of classic Colorado Springs family photos one last time.

Because of it’s scenery and proximity to some of our city’s most beautiful features, we thought that the entrance to Garden of the Gods would be the best backdrop for them. However, smoke from a forest fire filled the sky on the day of their shoot and the mountains were nowhere to be seen. We went ahead with the shoot and I’m so glad we did. We had some AMAZING light to work with and I loved the results.

Doug and Nicole did agree to meet up with me a couple of weeks later for another brief session to capture the scenery they were looking for. Sometimes you’ve got to just be flexible and keep trying until you capture it all!

Doug and Nicole, thank you for allowing me to capture a piece of this life transition for you. May you be blessed in your new city and home!

Colorado Engagement Photos || Heather & Ryan

Posted by on Sep 5, 2016 in Engagement/Couples | 0 comments

I cannot wait to show you the images from Heather & Ryan’s beautiful wedding day. However, it just seems right that their classic Colorado engagement photos should come first. Right? For their engagement session Heather & Ryan chose the rustic – and beautiful – red barn at the open space just south of Castle Rock. We met up on a cloudy day and had just enough time to complete their session before the rain really started to come down.

If you’ve ever been one of my wedding couples, then you know that I LOVE engagement sessions. It’s during engagement sessions that I get to hear a couples’ love story and get to listen to their dreams and plans for their upcoming wedding. Wedding days are wonderful, but it’s during engagement sessions that I get to slow down with my couples and really get to know them.

Thank you, Heather & Ryan, for spending some time with me before your big day. I hope that you will look back on these photos with fondness for the love and anticipation that filled your relationship in the months leading up to your wedding!

Colorado Springs Family Photos || The Purvis Family

Posted by on Sep 2, 2016 in Families, Family Photos | 0 comments

For their Colorado Springs family photos, the Purvis family wanted COLOR – and lots of it! From their outfits, to their location choices, to their fun personalities, I loved everything about this session.

When we began our session it was a cloudy – but warm – day. However, about 15 minutes after we began shooting, the sky let loose with a giant downpour. Knowing that we were going to have to reschedule to complete the rest of the session, I asked if they would mind playing in the rain for just a bit. What resulted was pure magic. In fact, I just might start praying for rain to interrupt every single one of my sessions!

We did meet up again, at a different Colorado Springs location, a week later to finish the rest of the session. I suppose the drier weather is nice too. I loved spending two afternoons with the Purvis family!

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.
