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 ...

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 ...

Colorado Springs Lifestyle Newborn Session || The Osburn Family
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.

Five Minute Project || Waking the Baby One Year Later
The other morning - at 6:45am - my littles were being especially sweet and I couldn't resist the opportunity to sneak in and complete a little 5 minute project photo session with them. These photos were taken almost exactly one year after the photos from this post - and I really can't believe the difference that one year makes.

Colorado Springs Home Birth || Welcome Evangeline
I've been anticipating the arrival of this little one for months - and when her mama asked me to be there for her Colorado Springs home birth, I was over the moon!
For WEEKS I sprinted to my phone every time it rang and slept with it right next to my pillow. So when Emily called me just after midnight on March 23, I was pretty m ...

A Lifestyle Newborn Session || Welcome Miss Everleigh
I've got to be honest here - when it comes to posing newborns, I am at a loss. Ask me to put a baby in a basket or a football helmet or a bowl of apples, and you'll see me heading for the door. But lifestyle newborn sessions? Oh how I love them.
I love the little glimpse into a family's life. Newborns bring a certain bit of mess ...

Miss Geneva [First Month of Life]
I promise I won't give you a month-by-month play of my child's life. But this first month, you guys. Oh my gosh. So sweet and tender and snuggly and full of newness. I just had to share.
And if you make it all the way through this photo overload, there might just be something in it for ya. If you're up for a little contest that ...

Geneva Joy [Just Brand New]
New babies are like campfires - you can watch them for hours and all at once nothing changes and everything changes.
Hands that won’t stay out of her mouth
Tight, tiny, mad fists
A tongue that sticks out when she cries
And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all th ...

The Masuen Family [with a good book]
Just after moving into their new home, the Masuen Family decided on an at-home photo shoot to celebrate this fun milestone in their lives. I loved catching just a glimpse of their day-to-day routine and just watching them be a family! Mr. Myles is fully two and certainly practiced his independence. We even took a little walk down t ...
