I love the relationships I have with clients that have grown over the years. I especially treasure the ones that have spanned a decade or more– growing and changing from a couple in love, to a family of three, then four, and now five! I was thrilled when this once-again-mama said she wanted to document […]

For this sweet family’s session, in this unseasonable warm fall we’ve had, we got one of the few cold and super blustery days. We chose Standley Lake Regional Park for our session, a 1,200 acre reservoir in Westminster, Colorado. On this particular day, the water didn’t help with the crisp wind, but they were super […]

I first picked up a camera about 14 or 15 years ago. It was around the same time that I also joined a community of hobbyist photographers in Washington DC. We had so much fun as a group, roaming all over the nation’s capital, taking photos of the city, its people, and sharing our work […]

I know this sweet family through their oldest daughter who went to school with my boys until this past year. I love when clients turn into friends, but it’s also so meaningful when friends turn into clients. I’m so flattered when friends trust me to capture their families! We decided to meet up at Denver’s City […]

I’m always flattered to be invited to photograph a special occasion, family trip, or getaway – whether in the mountains, at the beach, or beyond. But this time, I was […]

Even though we are already into the season, I thought I would compile a list of some of the best fall festivals, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes in the areas I serve, so you can spend the next few weekends soaking up all the fall color, picking a pumpkin for this year’s jack-o-lantern, and gobbling […]

The wonderful thing about an outdoor family session is that there’s always a place to explore right under our feet. For this one, we chose Windy Saddle Park on Lookout Mountain, near Golden, Colorado. The boys all loved exploring the trails, picking up sticks and other little treasures along the way. This family was absolutely […]

Anyone who know me knows my family and I are a just a little animal crazy. When I meet someone new, and they ask I have any pets and I say ‘oh yes, we have a bunch’ I imagine they probably figure we might have 3 or so…. but how about 12!? (We had 13 […]

My line of work is very personal. I love that about photography. It’s difficult to take candid, intimate, and fun portraits of families without feeling some level of connection to the people you are photographing. So, it’s pretty common for my clients to become my friends! And other times, my friends end up becoming clients, […]
