The Hahn Family [Golden, Co Family Photographer]

First of all, can we all just pause and admire the coordination in these outfits? I always tell my clients that coordination is more coherent and pleasing than going matchy-matchy. I think I may have found a perfect and gorgeous example. (I also can’t claim any credit for helping… this is all their amazing mama, Sarah!)

I don’t think I can begin to tell you how much I love photographing this family. I adore how the kids love each other so much (not that there’s not any squabbling, because, yes, they are normal siblings) and pull it together for the sweetest photos. They encourage each other, compete, giggle at their daddy’s antics, and claim snuggles in-between shots. After years of photographing them and knowing their family, I really love how they say my name (let’s be honest, Alzbeta is a mouthful for most adults) and greet my babies (Jude was a tiny stowaway on this shoot). I always know that a shoot with them is going to be one filled with all kinds of silliness and joy, and I honestly had a hard time narrowing down photos to share, because there are so many fun ones!

Welcoming Miss Zelie

Two years ago, this amazing family welcomed me into their home to photograph Bennett’s early days. It was one of my favorite sessions that year, and this one, despite being two years later, a whole different house, and with a new baby, is slated to join the ranks of that session. The big sisters welcomed me right in and told me all about their rooms, school, and upcoming adventures. Big brother made sure I knew he was really excited about tractors, and everyone, everyone, declared their love of this beautiful baby girl.

If I had to choose one word to describe this family session, it would be connection. I had to do so little directing, and it was beautiful. They came ready with giggles and snuggles from the start. Between hospital schedules, weather, and life in general, it took us a good four or five attempts to get this session done. We were up against a bit of a deadline as they were moving soon, and while the move is bringing them closer to family, it is taking them quite a ways from the mountains, and they wanted a photo session to document their time living near the Rockies. I think we succeeded. Views + joy + all the love = everything I love about this session.

Home with Harper [Parker, Colorado Newborn Photographer]


Here we are, with the third (and final, for now) segment of Miss Harper’s welcome into the world. Sweet Harper has a big sister who has readily blazed a trail into the world ahead of her. She is sweet and wild in that little girl way, and I can’t wait to see her little sister follow in her footsteps. This is a family that loves each other fiercely and revels in all the joy a little one brings.


Welcoming Miss Harper [Parker Birth Photographer]

Oh, sweet little Harper. There were so many worries as your family waited for you, and when I got the call to head to the hospital to photograph your birth, I was ready to greet that mix of anxiety and excitement. Truly, though, the overwhelming joy at your coming washed over everything. Your mama was a warrior, especially when labor went from zero to 60 in what felt like mere moments. Your daddy stood ready with love, support, and anything your mama needed. As the morning sun washed over the room, you, sweet little girl, came into a world filled with love for you.

While not every fear can be assuaged at once, at that moment, you were there, and you were healthy enough to be snuggled and admired from near and far as texts and phone calls started flying back and forth to announce your arrival. Welcome to the outside world, sweet girl!
