Miss Marigold [Westminster Newborn Photographer]

For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart. (1 Samuel 1:27) 
Oh, Miss Marigold, you, little lady, were loved and fought for. I sniffed back tears so many times throughout this session as your mama talked about what a miracle you are, how hard the last few months of pregnancy were, and how very, very worth it you are. Little lady, you are surrounded by people who adore you so very much.

Grace - Thank you for making our session so easy and beautiful. I was just telling someone how you had a magic touch with our older children. I am so grateful that we were able to have this precious time in our family captured. Thank you for everything, Alzbeta!

The Hellwig Family [Golden Family Photographer]

If I had to choose three words to describe this session, it would be warmth, love, and joy. It all just oozes out of these photos, and I love it. This is why I do my job: the snuggles, the silliness, and most importantly: the families. If you’re on the fence about doing a family session, my friends, do it. These sessions are made of the memories of your sweet baby’s belly, the way they laugh, and so much more.

With autumn sessions right around the corner (hello, September!), I feel like I should probably get some of last year’s sessions blogged. I loved that we had a little view, a little fall color, and a whole lot of sweet personality in this session. Colorado and the families in it are so wonderful! Big sister was so patient with her (twin!) baby brothers, and they, in turn, were patient enough with me to capture their darling personalities.


I still have a few fall sessions open if you want to head on over to the contact form so we can put something lovely for your family together!

Welcoming Mr. Peter: a fresh 48 in Parker, Colorado

Fresh 48: newborn baby boy in hospital bassinet

There is something magical about fresh 48 sessions. This is such a tiny sliver of time in the long view of things, but one I think all parents hold close. It is as if the whole world has decided to whisper for a time so that everything is focused on this trio of baby and parents. Mr. Peter: so perfect in his little boy sturdiness, with just the right amount of chunk and tiny baby to him. The gorgeous light in their room only added to how perfect it all felt, and Amy and Sean’s obvious joy at meeting their third baby, and first little boy permeated the bit of time I spent there. Welcome to the outside world, Sweet Peter! You are well and truly loved.

Welcoming Miss Haddie

This little girl was welcomed into a family so full of love and excitement. There is always something about getting to snuggle a newborn that reminds me what an amazing job I have. These first few days fly so quickly, and I’m grateful I get to have a small part in capturing those moments for families to look back on when these little days have passed.
