Downtown Colorado Springs with the Carew Family

Families Lifestyle

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

Why, you ask.

Well, this family photo session in downtown Colorado Springs included BOTH ice-cream (hooray!) and a wasp sting (boo.). We started out enjoying some amazingly vibrant fall leaves. Things were going well until sweet big-sister Isabel discovered that those beautiful leaves were housing some of last year’s wasps that WOULD NOT DIE! (Remember the fall of the wasp attacks??) The brave girl endured a painful sting to her finger and then continued to smile (after a few rightfully-earned tears) for the rest of the photos there.

Thankfully, mama Shannon had requested that we end our photo session with a few lifestyle-type photos at Josh and John’s ice-cream. Not only was it the perfect place for some fun photos, it was also a great spot for rewarding a kid who had just had a wasp stinger in her finger. Things really did turn out okay in the end, but next time I’ll take ALLL the ice-cream and none of the wasps, thank you.

I really loved that Shannon wanted to add a little variety to her photos this year by taking the family to do something fun. I really was a great way to capture some sweet interactions and genuine smiles. If you’ve got a fun idea for your family photos, I’d love to hear about it. I’m 99% sure that we can make anything happen!

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 d ...

Joel & Emily [Downtown Colorado Springs]
When Joel & Emily visited Colorado Springs this summer, I was so fortunate to meet up with them one evening for family photos. They are well loved, and I knew they would be busy while they were here, but they made time for a quick session and even let me test out a new location on them. Little Nora is full of curiosity and even tested out her new walking skills a bit for me. And she had just enough patience and smiles for this short shoot. What a sweet little family of three!

Colorado Springs Family Photographer || The Cutter Family
Here's the thing about being a Colorado Springs family photographer; there is no shortage of beautiful locations to shoot in. No matter the time of day or year, I can always find a lovely surrounding for any family session. BUT, when a family comes to me and says, "Our backyard is really amazing, would you mind shooting us there?" I always, ALWAYS take them up on that! When the Cutter family got together in July, they offered me this amazing opportunity of capturing them all in their gorgeous backyard. I loved the way the surroundings personalized the shoot and gave the kids so much freedom to play and roam and get comfortable. Of top of t ...
