Levi Paul turns 2

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...

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...

Colorful Colorado isn’t just about the Mountains…

I do a lot of outdoor family sessions because, well...COLORADO. It seems like a no brainer. But the truth is, with growing neighborhoods like the RINO district on the edge of downtown Denver, a family photo session can be JUST as colorful. This gorgeous Momma is a...

Let’s pause for a moment

You could say we have grown up together in our adult lives. We met as unmarried women and lived our single lives to the fullest. We married and bought homes. We had our first babies...and then more...and now this beautiful boy completes the baby making phase....

Love in the mountains

We might be a little spoiled here in Colorado.  Even if you live in the Denver Metro Area it's just a short drive to get to locations like this one (Meyer Ranch) that take your breath away (literally take it away when you make your poor clients 'hike' to get to the...

Playing in the woods

Four sisters. Each beautiful and full of life. These girls are my family by marriage and I have been enamored of them from the moment I met them. Each time we pull up to a family gathering they walk out the front door and scoop up my babies as though they are their...
