BEST PHOTOS OF 2015 – Part 2 (September-December)

I am so excited to share part 2 of my favorite photos of the year with you all!!  And, like I mentioned yesterday in my Part 1 post, go check out my instagram (@katiederusphoto) for some behind the scens of my favorite shots and some fun tips and tricks I use during shoots!

As usual, my fall season this year was CRAZY and full of shoots! It’s definitely a busy time for me, but such a nice time of year to be shooting outside and I always love the results!  I started fall with a bang with my good friends Brian and Teresa’s mountain wedding, which was stunning and a total blast!  Definitely one of my favorite dress shots ever right here:

BEST PHOTOS OF 2015 – Part 1 (January – August)

I really love doing these posts at the end of every year because I get to go back and remember all my awesome shoots and amazing clients and remember my favorite images!  This year was a GREAT one and I had so many of my favorite repeat clients back and lots of fun new people to meet and photograph! So many cute new babies and kiddos getting bigger and people getting engaged and married this year, and I loved every minute of it!  Check out just some of my favorites from the first half of the year, starting with my friend Steph and her sweet family of 3 (with baby 4 to come later! :)) ..

Denver Family Photographer :: Baby Mason’s Christmas Shoot!

Mr. Mason’s mom is one of my best best friend’s sisters and she also happens to be a huge fan of all things Christmas so when she asked if we could do a little Christmas themed shoot when I was home for the holidays, of course I was game!!  Plus I wanted to see Mason since I had only met him once for his newborn photos and I couldn’t wait to see how big he’d gotten!  We had so much fun doing all sorts of little Christmas ideas and I love how these turned out!!
