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. Froggy legs Wrinkled knees Hands that won’t stay out of her mouth Flexed toes Tight, tiny, mad fists A tongue that sticks out when she cries And a big brother who climbs into the middle of all th ...
