I am proud to be a born and raised Colorado girl! I love everything (except my north facing driveway in the winter) about Colorado….even it’s unpredictable weather. Whenever I am working with a client trying to figure out timing and weather I have learned to just roll with the punches (and to keep a clear umbrella in the car). This information will become important later on in the blog so just hold on for a minute.
This sweet family. I can’t even put into words how much I loved working with them!
Gwen reached out to me and wanted to book a session with her entire family. I love doing big extended family sessions. Seeing them interact together, laugh together do life alongside one another is such a joy for me! And Gwen and I hit it off…right down to our love for Frye boots.
Getting so many different combinations is one of my favorite parts of these big sessions. I know that grandma and grandpa treasure these photos right now and I know that for YEARS to come their kids and grandkids will continue to cherish them.
When you are a kid it is hard to understand how much your grandparents love you! But the older you get, the more you treasure that relationship.
Take a looky at this good looking fella. He made me laugh with his quiet, subtle humor. I got a really funny picture of him in front of the manure spreader, but I thought this picture was a little bit more blog appropriate.
I was lucky enough to photograph this immediate family a few years ago. We did an urban session in downtown Littleton and it was a blast. I instantly fell in love with them, even if Jason makes me work a little bit to make him smile. So to see them again was icing on the cake of this session.
These blondies with their blue eyes. They are just so dang cute. Sorry Aidan…I know 12 year olds aren’t supposed to be “cute” but I have to call it like I see it.
About 30 minutes into our session the Colorado and her weather decided to change her mind. It started SNOWING in the middle of our session. It had been sunny(ish) up until this point. Thankfully it was more of a pellet snow and it came and went in about 10 minutes. Can you see the remnants of snow in Aidan’s hair?
What was left behind was this gorgeous backdrop. Look at those cool clouds. So I quickly forgave Colorado for the snow during my session and thanked God for the beautiful skies that were left behind.
Gwen and Scott are so amazing. Not only have they been married for 38 years, but they own a karate school in Lakewood.
It is a family business and they have been a Lakewood staple for more than 22 years. How cool is that? I was lucky enough to visit their school and it was impressive! I just love family owned businesses and try to support them as often as possible. Especially an adorable family like this.
The best part of a big session like this is that I get to help them make these pictures and memories last forever! I was able to design some Christmas cards for them and even a beautiful coffee table book that they proudly display. I am sure that they all love to look through that book and see the love that they share!
