Lifestyle Newborn Session || Gatling Family

Lifestyle

I first met Kirsten 4-ish years ago when I arrived at the 5:45 am spin class she was teaching at the YMCA – and she’s kicked my booty in that class nearly every Wednesday morning since then! Though it’s early and dark and cold and often hard to wake up for, I look forward to that workout each week and am never disappointed that I showed up!

I was so excited for Kirsten when she announced that she was expecting a little girl and was THRILLED when she asked me to capture her beautiful, curly-headed bundle of joy once she arrived. Kirsten and Cameron are such good parents and it was so fun to see the way they calmly cared for little Kiara. I don’t know if they were just keeping it together for me, but I suspect not. They were absolutely unaffected by spit up and tears and took it all in stride on the morning of their newborn shoot.

I figured it was about time I shared these photos as little miss has already far surpassed this newborn phase. It really does go so fast, doesn’t it mamas? Hope you enjoy this little newborn love today! lifestyle newborn photos colorado springs family photographer colorado springs family photographer colorado springs newborn photographer colorado springs newborn photographer colorado springs family photographer colorado springs newborn photographer colorado springs lifestyle photographer colorado springs lifestyle photographer colorado springs lifestyle newborn colorado springs newborn photographer lifestyle newborn family photo lifestyle newborn

Olive Jane
In my opinion, being asked to be present at the birth of a baby is one of the greatest honors. It means to be allowed to witness one the most painful and vulnerable moments of a woman's life and to be invited to experience - in a most intimate way - the creation of a family. I've been anticipating the birth of miss Olive Jane for months and was thrilled to be awakened in the wee hours of April 7th by a text message that said, "Come on over. Baby's on her way!" As Holly labored at home during the darkest hours of the night, I wished - on her behalf - that it would just.be.over. It was a long labor and I know that there were several momen ...

Summer Bucket List || Colorado Springs Drive-In
I have a tendency to be self-absorbed. To wake up in the morning and think, "What do I want to do today? What needs to be cleaned? What work needs to be done?" (Can anyone relate?) I get to the end of the day and realize that I've left little room for the good stuff. Ya know, the "having fun with my son" stuff. So I decided that I needed to write the fun stuff down. And I needed to hang it up where I could see it and plan for it and look forward to it. Enter the "summer bucket list." A little list that has made all the difference. Our Summer Bucket Lists help me enter into my kids' childhood by setting aside one day each week t ...

A Lifestyle Newborn Session || Welcome Miss Everleigh
I've got to be honest here - when it comes to posing newborns, I am at a loss. Ask me to put a baby in a basket or a football helmet or a bowl of apples, and you'll see me heading for the door. But lifestyle newborn sessions? Oh how I love them. I love the little glimpse into a family's life. Newborns bring a certain bit of mess and chaos that is somehow also sweet and precious.   The baby monitors, tiny diapers, receiving blankets and piles of laundry are real life. They show how it is when a 7.5lb human makes her way into a new family. I love to capture this - and the rocking and the shushing and the outfit changes. It's all so beautiful ...
