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 ...

The Carew Family
It just seems so fitting to be closing out 2014 with the Carew family. Why? Well, because you, dear Good Photo client, were a part of bringing this family together.
Really? Yes. Really.
Let me explain - the Carews have been faithfully praying for and pursing and working towards adopting a child for the past three years. And f ...

My [own] Little Family
I love, love, love using this space to show off all of the gorgeous and unique families and happenings that I am blessed to photograph. But today I thought, hey, it's Christmas Eve. Why not show off my own little family this time?
Since Briggs was 15 months old when we brought him home, he had his first official portraits (done ...

Puttin’ the “Good” in Good Photo [The Carew & Neely Families]
A couple of months ago, I told you a little bit about why I named my business the way I did.
I'm here today with a little sequel to that post - one more reason why I chose to go with the name "Good Photo" instead of something more simple or catchy.
It all really starts with a story about me and my family. My little family sta ...

So it seems that we are well into the month of May. Around here in the Kyle house, that's pretty significant - because this month, Mr. Briggs will turn two. Missing his birthday last year was a little bit hard for me, so I've really been looking forward to celebrating WITH him this year.
As the occasion approaches, I'm well awar ...

On Friday - just two weeks shy of the day we began this process - we completed the VERY LAST step in the adoption of Mr. Briggs. By Colorado law, we are required to appear in court for a re-adoption hearing six months after bringing him home. As all important days should, our day began with chocolate donuts before we headed for the ...

For What It’s Worth
If you're in the process of adopting,
and if you're anything like me,
you are probably spending hours on the internet looking for advice
and trying to learn just what it might be like to bring your little one home.
I do believe that adoption is normal, but it just isn't as common as brining home a tiny newborn from the hospit ...

Six Months Home
During the first few weeks that Briggs was home, Mark and I often found ourselves looking at each other and saying, "This is really weird."
But like all new parents, we pressed on to learn and grow and adjust while providing the best possible care we knew how for our little guy.
It seemed like everywhere we turned, someone wa ...
