Colorado Springs Family Photos || The Purvis Family


For their Colorado Springs family photos, the Purvis family wanted COLOR – and lots of it! From their outfits, to their location choices, to their fun personalities, I loved everything about this session.

When we began our session it was a cloudy – but warm – day. However, about 15 minutes after we began shooting, the sky let loose with a giant downpour. Knowing that we were going to have to reschedule to complete the rest of the session, I asked if they would mind playing in the rain for just a bit. What resulted was pure magic. In fact, I just might start praying for rain to interrupt every single one of my sessions!

We did meet up again, at a different Colorado Springs location, a week later to finish the rest of the session. I suppose the drier weather is nice too. I loved spending two afternoons with the Purvis family!

The Fariss Family
This sweet family has a little brother on the way and what a blessing it was to spend a morning with them capturing them as they are today. Big sister, Brooklee,  has some of the most beautiful hair I've ever seen and was not at all interested in our photo session until the session involved running. She must be two. :) Little Brother, on the other hand, was quite excited to have me there. He moved and kicked and stretched his way through the morning. Oh how I love that he was making his presence known from inside his mama's belly. It was as if he was saying, "I am here. I am a life. I am already a part of this family." I'm praying for t ...
The Tate Family [at home in the forest]
When an inquiry from a new client starts with "you can come to our property" and ends with "can we include our horses?" - you know it's going to be a fun shoot! Because of the freezing temps and high winds that November brought us, I had to reschedule with the Tate family three times, but boy am I glad that we persevered and am so thankful for the beautiful December evening that we had for these photos. The Tate kiddos were wonderful hosts and I loved capturing them where they live and play! Enjoy these bright wintery smiles! 
The Bruce Family [All Together for Christmas]
Oh how I love photographing the Bruce Family! We did this session last year, just two weeks before my baby girl was born - and that same baby girl is totally the reason why these photos never got shared. (How long is it acceptable to use "I have a new baby" as an excuse?) But I just loved this session so much, that I thought, what the heck. Better late than never! I've known the "two Bruce boys" - Erik & Stephen- since I was in elementary school. It has been such an honor to photograph this family each year when they gather together in Colorado Springs for the holidays. How fun to watch their families grow! They've even added one more ...
