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!

Colorado Springs Family Photographer || The Cucco Family
This is the second year I've had the honor of photographing the Cucco Family in Colorado Springs. And after two sessions with this family, I can say with confidence that their kids are the best leaf collectors and nature explorers in all the land! When we were done with this session, there were piles and piles of leaves everywhere we had been. And I loved it, because it meant these kiddos were having a great time! I love it when families schedule morning sessions - but as it gets later in the year, I begin to get nervous about wether or not it will be too cold for the kids. Although we had a bit of wind to deal with on this morning, these ...
The Patrick Family
I simply cannot believe that my little girl is 3 months old already and that I am back to work. Oh how I have missed shooting - but I do not regret one minute of the time that I took off to make this transition to a family of 4. I was so excited that this lovely family (and dear friends of mine) ushered me back into photography in early April. I've watched this family grow from just the two of them into a family of 5 - and it seems like it happened in the blink of an eye! Such an honor to capture them this year and what a beautiful Colorado evening we had. If you told me that there is a city more beautiful than Colorado Springs, I would fi ...
The Gaddis Family
What a joy it was to meet up with the Gaddis family for photos at the beginning of December. They live close to Denver, but decided that the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel would be the perfect place for their family photos. They were hoping to use the photos for Christmas gifts, so I held off a bit on sharing them with you so as to not ruin the surprise. I sure hope these gifts were part of a very Merry Christmas for them! Don't let these beautiful people fool you, it was freeeeezing cold during this shoot. But, I believe that the gorgeous surroundings and the Christmas decorations made up for that fact. And didn't they do a good job of smil ...
