A New Fish For Briggs
The buying of a fish. It's an ordinary thing, I suppose.
However, I heard it said once that the better we tell our stories, the better we want to live them. And this is an ordinary story that I wanted to tell.
It's a story about allowance, and saving, and learning to value money. It's about my boy's Lego watch and shoes worn ...

Colorado Springs Engagement Photos || Josh & Maddi
In one week, these two will officially tie the knot - so this seems like a most appropriate time to reflect on their very Colorado engagement session.
I tell you what, the state of Colorado really dealt us a blow on the afternoon of Josh & Maddi's shoot. The weather was painfully cold, but because they live far away, we jus ...

Downtown Colorado Springs with the Carew Family
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 beaut ...

Lifestyle Newborn Session || Gatling Family
I first met Kirsten 4-ish years ago when I arrived at the 5:45 am spin class she was teaching at the YMCA - and she's kicked my booty in that class nearly every Wednesday morning since then! Though it's early and dark and cold and often hard to wake up for, I look forward to that workout each week and am never disappointed that I s ...

Denver’s River North Arts District || A Shootout
I was lucky enough to be an aunt for many, many years before I became a mama. It's a "thing" I didn't know I wanted and a time in my life that I am incredibly, incredibly grateful for. I loved spoiling and loving and getting to know my nieces and nephews for all those years and I had no idea how limited the "aunt life" would become ...

Colorado Springs Family Photos || Harling Family
I knew JJ in what feels like another lifetime. Before he was married - WAY before either of us had kids - when he and my then-new husband used to play in a band together. You guys, those were good times. Such good times.
So when JJ told me he was going to be in Colorado Springs for Christmas and asked me if I'd take his family p ...

Colorado Springs Engagement Photos || Emily & Tanner
When I was in kindergarten, I looked around my classroom one day and realized that I was not like other kids. To me, it seemed, everyone else had a brother or sister. But not me. And it dawned on me that something important was missing from my life.
So naturally, I lied and told my kindergarten teacher that my mom was pregnant. ...

Wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens
As the daughter of a passionate gardner, I've been to the Denver Botanic Gardens many times before - but never for a wedding. When Allison asked me if I'd like to assist her with Mike & Amanda's wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens, the answer was an immediate "yes!"
And these two Colorado Springs girls had a blast tearin' up d ...

Friends, can I tell you a secret? I love to blog. Is that weird? I just really love to share my beautiful families and children and brides and grooms with you. And every fall, I get stuck. Because I want to share them with you RIGHT AWAY...but I also don't want to give away any Christmas Card surprises. So I sit on all of my fall s ...
