Colorado Springs Family Photos || The Tharp Family


Last month, the Tharp family said good-bye to Colorado Springs and moved across the country to a new adventure. But, before they did, they wanted to do a set of classic Colorado Springs family photos one last time.

Because of it’s scenery and proximity to some of our city’s most beautiful features, we thought that the entrance to Garden of the Gods would be the best backdrop for them. However, smoke from a forest fire filled the sky on the day of their shoot and the mountains were nowhere to be seen. We went ahead with the shoot and I’m so glad we did. We had some AMAZING light to work with and I loved the results.

Doug and Nicole did agree to meet up with me a couple of weeks later for another brief session to capture the scenery they were looking for. Sometimes you’ve got to just be flexible and keep trying until you capture it all!

Doug and Nicole, thank you for allowing me to capture a piece of this life transition for you. May you be blessed in your new city and home!

Just before Father's Day, these three beautiful ladies decided that they wanted to surprise Dad with photos to fill his office. Dad was a bit suspicious when the girls left the house all dressed up one evening - and left him all alone at home. Sometimes, true surprises are hard to pull off, aren't they? In the end, Dad ended up with some true beauty to smile back at him while he is working. We laughed alot during this session. And the laughter may or may not have been due to a little bit of funny business surrounding some "potty talk." I learned a new knock-knock joke in the process and also learned that my boy is not the only kid who thin ...

My Geneva Joy || Snow on her First Birthday
It snowed on the day she was born - just like I dreamed it would - and I've always called her my little winter baby. This little babe of mine loves to be outside, and the cold and wind and snow completely thrill her. When it began to snow on her first birthday, a little exploring outside was the perfect way to celebrate her. These photos in the snow not only sweetly capture this important first birthday, but somehow they sum up and punctuate her whole first year of life perfectly for me. This has been a most wonderful and lovely and amazing year and I can only hope that her second year will be as beautiful as her first. Briggs was given ...

The Cucco Family || Family Photos in Colorado Springs
Last year, the Cucco family scheduled their photo session right at the tail end of Fall. Having just moved to Colorado, they wanted a location that would be iconic to the city of Colorado Springs. What better location that a spot that shows off a bit of Garden of the Gods and a lot of beautiful Fall colors. I thoroughly enjoyed my morning with the Cucco family - especially the adventurous spirit of their two kids. They marched through the field, picked up sticks, explored the tall grasses and displayed genuine curiosity and joy to be outdoors. Free spirited littles are always the BEST part of family photoshoots for me! If you're hoping ...
