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 ...

Family at Garden of the Gods || Osburn Family
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 ...

Five Minutes with Her Toothbrush
It's been a while since I blogged a 5-minute-project - but Christmas break means time to work on my own projects and that usually translates into sharing a few photos of my own kiddos with you!
Be honest, you probably don't spend 5 minutes with your toothbrush do you? But miss Geneva does. In fact, she'll spend 30 minutes brushi ...

Chapel of our Savior Wedding || Cathy & Dele
Last May, I was honored to assist Jen with Cathy & Dele's Chapel of our Savior wedding. SO MUCH about this day was perfect and beautifully planned - the weather, the venue, the decor, the BRIDESMAIDS DRESSES!!
However, there was a heartfelt tenderness that was threaded in and out of the whole day that really caught my attent ...

Winter Family Photos || The Lessard Family
One thing I love about living in Colorado is that we experience four distinct seasons here. When it's summer, you know it. And when it's winter, there's plenty of cold and snow to remind you of that too.
And with the changing weather comes a constantly changing landscape. As a photographer, this can be wonderfully exciting. For ...
