Jenny + Matthew
November 12, 2016
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.
The Archuleta Family
October 22, 2016
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.
The Hayes Family
September 24, 2016
This sweet little guy turned one last month, so his parents wanted to get some photos taken of their newly minted one-year-old and some family photos as well. They suggested we take them in Historic Downtown Littleton, which was a great place with lots of brick and unique touches. We ended up with a perfect morning for walking Main Street and doing all kinds of silly things to make him laugh! There may have been bubbles and balancing stuffed animals on my head involved!
Nicole & The Boys
September 15, 2016
You may remember this beautiful family from the family photos I took of them when their youngest son was born. Nicole has since started a blog chronicling her adventures in being the mom to two boys. She approaches motherhood from a place of realness and grace. You should check her out over at Embracing Chaos. She asked me to take some lifestyle photos of her morning with the boys for her blog and I couldn’t wait to spend time with this family!
The Jacobsmeyer Family

What a joy it was to get to photograph this beautiful family as they enter a new season of life with two children. Nicole and I met not quite a year ago, and shortly after we met she learned she was pregnant with her second little one. It has been so fun to walk beside her as she carried her second little man and my honor to get to capture some of the first photos of their family of four!

Castle Pines, Colorado
Colorado is very fickle when it comes to spring weather. We’ve had some glorious days in the 70s and we have had a blizzard that left us under two feet of snow– all in the last two weeks. When the forecast called for snow again this weekend, I decided to take advantage of the lightly falling snow for a shoot with my beautiful friend, Victoria. Victoria has been dancing her whole life, and even spent some time out in NYC being a triple threat- dancer, singer and actress. She is a pro at portraits and knew exactly how to move her body and face to get a great shot- making my job so easy! We happened to do this shoot on International Dance Day, so we definitely had to get some of her amazingly talented dance moves in there!

Jim and Amber have been family friends of my husband’s for over a decade. When they reached out to me for a quick session before Christmas, I couldn’t wait to meet their adorable little man, who was four months old at the time of our shoot. This shoot was chilly, but Nolan did great and we were able to catch some adorable smiles. It’s such an honor to have been able to take photos for their first Christmas card as a family of three!

So much has changed in just a short year since I last photographed this sweet family! They’ve welcomed a new baby girl (who is already almost one) and moved back across the country from the Boston area. It is so fun when families return to me for their family portraits because it is such a joy to see how much their little ones have grown. Imrie is just as fun and full of spunk as the last time I saw her and little Elsie Joy truly lives up to her name!
Dan & Joanna

Highlands Ranch, Colorado
You may remember Dan and Joanna’s first engagement photo shoot at the gym. As promised, we did a more “traditional” shoot last weekend. It was a lot of fun to explore this nice little park with Dan, Joanna and their dog, Mack. We had to wait out a random rain storm, but the sun came out just in time for us to get some photos in before sundown.
Molly & Hudson

Highlands Ranch, Colorado
When Molly contacted me to inquire about family photos with her little guy, I was really excited. Now, I might be slightly biased, but I think there’s something really special about the relationship between a mother and son. These two are a beautiful example of that. I also learned about Legoland and got to watch a few races during this shoot, so I’d say that it was a success all the way around.
