What Love Looks Like

For awhile, I had to keep this beautiful family all to myself. At the time of the session, the adoption of this sweet boy wasn't yet final and for privacy purposes these pics were for their eyes only.  I'm thrilled to announce however, that this family has officially,...

Kicking off Fall Season…

No better way to kick off the fall photo season than with friends who feel like family. I've done several in home sessions for the littlest of the bunch this past year, so it was time to get dad in the pics and take it outdoors in this stunning Colorado Springs...

Be Brave, Be Kind, Have Fun

We had the MOST fun summer. We traveled, played, did camps, played, relaxed, played... But there DOES come a point when the walls seem to start closing in and suddenly everyone's over everyone and for us that literally happens the week before school starts. We were...

Why You Want To Be 3 Again…

Energy. 3 year olds have endless amounts of it. It seems to multiply AS it's being spent. It's inspiring and I WANT IT! But I suppose I'll just have to settle for chasing it around and capturing it's beauty. Miss Stella was an absolute joy to photograph for this in...

This boy. Where do I begin? Hi smile. It starts there. His smile puts a spell on you...I'm pretty sure there's 3 dimples there but I can't be positive because I can't stop staring at his eyes. They're dark as night but somehow they sparkle and captivate. He's pretty...

Don’t forget the boys…

I feel like guys kinds get the short end of the stick when it comes to Senior photos.  Social media is flooded with incredible pictures of girls but when it comes to the boys...crickets. For me these sessions have their own set of awesomeness. Especially when you get...

How to double the capacity of your heart

I remember being pregnant with my second and already feeling like he was getting the raw end of the deal.  The pregnancy didn't have all the new 'magic' like the first time. I wasn't digesting every piece of information on motherhood that I could get my hands on.  I...

Fun in the Sun

Have you heard of Park Hill Design? I remember the first time I laid eyes on Meridythe's work at a market. If I remember correctly, my jaw hung open the entire time I combed through the racks looking at the most beautiful and unique children's clothing I'd ever seen....

Jack Dillon turns 7

He loves green olives, and dried seaweed...but can't stand bacon. He plays and fights with equal passion with his big sister and little brother. And the littlest brother? He can do no wrong. He's got Jack wrapped around his little finger... He dodges your hand if you...

What dream clients look like

I literally sat and stared at the computer for a good few minutes trying to come up with the perfect title for this shoot. I thought about how much I loved that this family chose a location that was important to them yet trusted me enough to execute the vision. I...
