Ben Senior Session || Denver Senior Portrait Photographer

It's that time of year again. School supplies are taking over local stores, the summer is winding down, and the new school year is closing in fast. You may have mixed emotions about the start of another school year, but no matter how you feel it's coming! And for many, this August is a bit different than others because it marks the last first day of high school for all those seniors out there. Now is the perfect time to book a senior portrait session to document this special year in the life of your teen. Senior sessions don't have to be painful or expensive! I can work with you to create a package that works for you and your senior. 

Recently, I helped document this young man's senior year. After a stormy/windy day, the clouds parted and gave us time to capture a handful of shots for him (and mom). Being a former teacher, I always love spending a few minutes chatting with seniors about future dreams and plans. This session was no exception. I loved getting to meet Ben and chat with his mom, a former colleague of mine. We even snuck Mom in for a few photos too. Best of luck at Butler Ben!

Dodson Family || Denver Family Photographer

Sometimes, weather gets in the way a bit of the "perfect" location. A little rain in Indiana is common and for this particular family session, the rain swallowed up some of my scouted locations. So we improvised! With a little space to roam in their backyard and greenery to add some interest, we pressed on with a session right in their backyard. Their little guy was on the verge of turning ONE, so it was the perfect time to document the Dodson family. Randi and Todd have been friends of mine for years and getting to see them as parents has been such a fun switch. The littlest member of the family was a trooper for family pictures. A little unsure at first, but Mom and Dad knew how to get a smile on his face! Thankful once again for the opportunity to document a milestone with this family!

Cooper's First Birthday || Denver Family Photographer

Two things I love: lifelong friends and birthday parties. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to combine the two and capture a special first birthday party. Abby and I have known each other for quite literally, an entire life. We went through diapers, bowl cuts, the awkward years, summers at the lake, hours of swim practice, and on. So many fun memories! It has been such a joy watching Abby meet and fall in love with Matt and most recently starting a family. Lucky for me, they asked me to document their little one's first birthday! We celebrated with tacos and cake on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in May. The whole family was together, grandparents and all, so it was the perfect opportunity to capture the whole family and the celebration!

Sapps || Denver Family Photographer

Fall. My absolute favorite season. We all get to cool off a little bit, enjoy the fall leaves, and snuggle up with apple cider and pumpkin bread. Throw a Denver fall into the mix and you have really won the lottery. A little dusting of snow on the mountains off in the distance and sunshine with a slight breeze (except today because it was 80 degrees). Absolute perfection. I also love fall because fall leads to winter and the holidays. I mean give me October through December and I am one happy girl. As a photographer, the fall also means perfect light against golden Aspens for one epic Christmas card photo. 

My husband and I met the Sapps this summer and were pretty instant friends. It feels like we've known them forever, except it's really only been about two months. So when they asked me to take some pictures for them up in Vail, I jumped on board. We had a fun weekend exploring Vail and nearby hikes. Our timing was impeccable and the Aspens were showing off all weekend. Thankful for these friends and a beautiful fall weekend in the mountains.

Baby Zoey || Denver Newborn Photographer

Sweet baby Zoey. I may be partial (she is my niece), but she is just the cutest. Naturally, the whole family fell in love immediately with this sweet girl, especially her parents. I had the joy of doing a newborn lifestyle session with Zoey in her first week of life. I love lifestyle sessions because they bring the comfort of home to a session and capture details of the everyday. The nursery, the crib, handmade blankets, and the love of family. Here are a few of my favorites from Zoey's first week. Can't wait to take more of this girl as she grows up.
