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!

It was truly a joy to photograph this beautiful, HAPPY little Myles and his parents. The drool said this little baby was cutting teeth, but the smiles and giggles proved that nothing bothers him! His mamma is an old friend, but I hadn't seen her in many years. I was blessed to spend a sunny summer morning catching up with her and getting to know her sweet family. 
The Short Family
To say that it is an honor to photograph the Short family would be an understatement. Andrew, Hannah and I were great friends during our preschool days and I distinctly remember that one of us (but not Hannah or I) had a killer pair of spiderman footie pajamas. Now that the family is spread out between Colorado, California, and Texas, they usually try to work in a photo shoot when everyone gets together in Colorado. I always enjoy catching up with them, adore these three HAPPY littles, and wish for more time with them when all is said and done. The Short family shoot is the ONLY one that Briggs is allowed to attend with me - and it's po ...

The Hause Family || A Newborn at Christmas
I know it's February and that we just celebrated Valentine's day. But are you willing to travel back with me to Christmastime just for a minute? It's never too late to remember Christmas, right? The Hause family got to celebrate Christmas with a newborn - and a lively two-year-old - this past year, and I got to capture just a teeny, tiny bit of that treasured time. Adding a new little life to a family brings so much hope and joy. But there's something extra precious about adding that tiny newborn at Christmas. These smallest ones are a tangible reminder of what we are celebrating. Holding them in your arms you realize that the crying an ...
