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!

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.

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.

After doing Lily’s 6 month and 9 month photos, I was very excited to get to do her one year photos and catch up with this awesome family. It has been a joy and honor to watch Lily grow during this time and to get to know Amy and Pat. Lily is so fun and her desire to explore the site led to some fun photos and a very excited little one!

Back in November when I took Brandon and Meghan’s family photos, we didn’t know that Meghan was pregnant and that they would soon be announcing a new member of the family on the way! I loved getting to capture this special time in B & M’s life as they await the arrival of their little man in a few weeks. The location was perfect, and the ever-changing Colorado weather behaved for our session. I’m so excited for Camden’s arrival and for Jonathan to meet his future best friend!

This week, I’m lucky enough to have my grandparents visiting me from California. On a whim, I decided that they needed to have portraits taken as it has been several years since they had professional photos taken of them. So, with no hesitation, I took them out to a park I love for photos and we had a quick mini-session. I might be totally biased, by my grandparents are the cutest!
