I’ve been so lucky to get to do family photos for this beautiful family three times now (one & two)! This time, I got to photograph the newest addition to the family. There’s nothing sweeter than a newborn, and getting to meet and photograph this sweet little boy was such a joy! The extended Hayes family only has boys so far, and this new set of Hayes brothers sure are cute. Thank you for inviting me into your home to get to capture this new season of your lives!

This beautiful family has been with Amanda Rabon Photography from the beginning. I’ve photographed them four times now: when Lily was 6 months, 9 months, 1 year old  and now at 3 years old. I couldn’t be more honored to have been able to document Lily growing up and now, to document the family growing! As you’ll see in the pictures below, Lily is making a big announcement!

Colorado Springs, Colorado

There are about six degrees of separation that brought these two lovely ladies to me. Kandace went to college in TN with a girl named Sarah. I took photos of Sarah two-and-a-half years ago. I met Sarah through my friend Jehnie, whom I used to work with at a store in CA when I was a teenager and later reconnected with in CO. These two came here to Colorado, and specifically to Garden of the Gods, to get married. They made the trip all the way from Alabama to elope in an intimate ceremony with their son. The day was beautiful for their ceremony and the park made for a perfect setting for the beginning of their lives together. I thought it was so fun the way their dresses complemented each other so nicely, even though neither had seen the other’s dress until that day! It must be indicative of how well the women who wore them complement each other, too. Wherever we walked, Cherish & Kandace were greeted by the hundreds (probably thousands?) of people in the park that day with well wishes. Congratulations Mrs. & Mrs. Jackson – I wish you all the happiness in the world!

One of my very favorite things that I’ve gotten through marriage is more siblings. Growing up, my brother was my absolute best friend. And now, I’m blessed to have two more brothers, three more sisters and one more soon-to-be-sister.

I especially love having a sister that I can text and say something along the lines of “I’m obsessed with a wall in the mountains and I want to take photos there. Are you in?” And we jump in the car, take photos between which we laugh hysterically, and eat mountain pies at Beau Jo’s.

Thanks for a fun adventure, Rebekah!

What a joy it was to end my 2016 with this photoshoot! My sweet friend Becca contacted me, saying that they wanted to get family photos done for her mom’s Christmas gift. I had the honor to get to take these photos, which show three generations of love, faith and joy. I simply loved the way the family interacted with each other, and how comfortable the girls were being held by any one. I think those two know just how much they are loved by all members of their family.

Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.

I was put into contact with this lovely family through some mutual friends of ours who know them from being stationed together with the Air Force. Tara, her husband, and kiddos were in town for Christmas and her mom wanted family pictures as her gift. This family was not only super photogenic, but as sweet as can be as well. The Colorado weather kept changing every few minutes from overcast to sun, but despite the chilly air, they kept on smiling and having a good time. There was even a dance party to Justin Timberlake at the end!

This delightful couple and their English bulldog were so fun to get to know a little bit. Dave is the brother of Phil, whose family photos I did in October, so getting to meet him and his wife, Michele, was a treat. Their pup, Mack, was a total pro at posing and though Colorado weather kept us on our toes, we were able to get some lovely photos of this beautiful family.

What an honor to get to photograph this couple as they prepare for the birth of their first child, a baby boy. I’m probably a little biased, but I think having a son is SO fun, and I can’t wait for Jenny and Matthew to have just as much fun with baby Aidan as I get to have with my little guy. We explored a new location together and the combination of water, sunlight and a few trees with leaves remaining proved to be a perfect spot for our shoot.

I was fortunate enough to meet this beautiful couple through a dear friend of mine, who is Jess’ cousin. When Jess contacted me about family photos with their 6 month old boxer/mastiff mix, I was pretty excited as my family has raised boxers for years. Mary Jane proved to be a total joy to take photos of and to get to play with between shots. Phil and Jess just adore their sweet girl and it’s easy to see why. This shoot was fun and laid-back, just like the couple featured in these photos.

It’s hard to believe that this is the THIRD time that I have taken photos of this sweet family! The very first time, their youngest daughter was still cookin’ and they lived in Boston. So much has changed, but their fun-loving personalities have not! I absolutely love that each session I have with them includes at least one “funny face” picture. The trees are beautiful right now, so we had to take advantage of the fall colors and wonderful weather to embrace the coming season. And today is “Mama Muck’s” birthday – so, happiest of birthdays, Kate!
