Getting Ready: Kevin & Brittany
September 17, 2016
Photographed at the Alpen Way Chalet
Dress: Maggie Sottero Verina

Kevin and Brittany are dear friends, and when they asked me if I would photograph the getting ready process for their wedding, I was totally honored. I don’t generally do weddings, with few exceptions, but I was excited to get to spend the morning with this beautiful couple and their family and friends. My husband was a groomsman, so I might be a little biased, but everyone in this wedding looked amazing. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Daniel!

Aurora, Colorado

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

My brother-in-law Dan is an adventurer, whether it be rock climbing, skiing the Alps, hiking 14ers or using Crossfit to stay in shape. I’ve long said that it would take a very special girl to marry Dan, because some people are not meant to be tamed, but instead, need some one to run wild with them. Enter Joanna. A dancer and aerialist by profession, Joanna is always down to try anything.  With their upcoming marriage, Dan is getting a life-long partner in crime and I’m getting a super fun new sister. Basically, it’s a win-win for everyone. When they asked me to do their engagement photos, I thought it would be fun to try something less traditional and that would showcase their passions and unique talents. Be on the lookout for a more traditional shoot a little later, but for now, here are my favorites from our first session.

A huge thanks to Steve and Ashley at BackCountry Crossfit for letting us use their facility and to Coach Jim for staying late to allow us to get this session done. It’s an awesome box with great people- if you’re into Crossfit or want to try it, you should definitely check them out!

Boulder, Colorado

I got the pleasure of spending Saturday evening with this beautiful family on the CU Boulder campus. Eric and Shereen are expecting their fourth child and this little one’s gender is going to be a surprise! When I asked the girls, they all quickly said they think it will be a boy. I know firsthand the anticipation of a surprise gender birth and am SO excited for this family to meet this little baby in a few weeks! I’m honored to be able to capture these special moments as they await this new little family member.
