The Carew Family

Families Personal

It just seems so fitting to be closing out 2014 with the Carew family. Why? Well, because you, dear Good Photo client, were a part of bringing this family together.

Really? Yes. Really.

Let me explain – the Carews have been faithfully praying for and pursing and working towards adopting a child for the past three years. And finally – FINALLY- their precious little boy came home from Ethiopia the day before Thanksgiving. (Check out his homecoming here)

That was such a wonderful day! But, here’s the thing about adoption, it’s really hard.

Adopting a child takes a lot of patience and faith and, well, finances. When the Carews committed to adding a child to their family, Good Photo committed to supporting them financially. And that’s where all of YOU came in. Every time you’ve given me the huge privilege of capturing your families, kiddos, engagements, weddings, and events, a portion of the profits went to supporting the Carews. And weather you did it on purpose or not, I’m just so thankful that we all could be a part of THIS. Here’s to a blessed 2015 – I pray it will be a year of growth, blessings, and maybe a few surprises for you and yours. Happy New Year!

I've watched her little family grow and grow and grow via Facebook and I could.not.wait to get my camera on her beautiful babies. I enjoyed photographing them every bit as much as I thought I would  and I can testify ...

Colorado Springs Family Photographer || The Cutter Family
Here's the thing about being a Colorado Springs family photographer; there is no shortage of beautiful locations to shoot in. No matter the time of day or year, I can always find a lovely surrounding for any family session. BUT, when a family comes to me and says, "Our backyard is really amazing, would you mind shooting us there?" I always, ALWAYS take them up on that! When the Cutter family got together in July, they offered me this amazing opportunity of capturing them all in their gorgeous backyard. I loved the way the surroundings personalized the shoot and gave the kids so much freedom to play and roam and get comfortable. Of top of t ...

Miss Geneva [First Month of Life]
I promise I won't give you a month-by-month play of my child's life. But this first month, you guys. Oh my gosh. So sweet and tender and snuggly and full of newness. I just had to share. And if you make it all the way through this photo overload, there might just be something in it for ya. If you're up for a little contest that is.Okay, now for the contest. Wanna play? I'd like you to take a guess at how many photos I took of this babe during her first month of life. Just take a stab at it. Then head over to my Good Photo Facebook Page, like that page, and then post your guess in the comments of the link to this blog post. The person ...
