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 ...

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 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. ...

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 ...

My girl || 21 Months
Hey mama. I'm 21 months old now.
Did you know that?
Thank you for bringing me to this field with beautiful scenery and beautiful light.
I see that you brought your camera.
But I'm not gonna look at you, if that's okay. And I'm not gonna stand in the pretty light.
Do you know what I will do? I'll explore this whole pl ...

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.

Five Minute Project || A Little Camera Practice
When I started doing the Five Minute Project a couple of years ago, I thought I'd probably play along for a few months and then move on. But here I am, two years later, still really enjoying the practice of it.
Last week, on a phenomenally gorgeous day, Briggs said to me, "Hey Mama! Let's play with our cameras!" Oh sweet boy, yo ...

This Niece of Mine
A couple of weeks ago, my niece decided to come along with me for a family photo shoot. We arrived early and I asked her to walk around with me to test the light before my clients arrived. She happily agree and my "light check" turned into a little mini photoshoot.
There is a special joy for me that comes with photographing peop ...

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 ...
