Denver Family Photographer :: The Knowlton Family

Oh I love this shoot!!  The Knowlton Family are Katie Derus Photography first-timers, but Sarah was the wedding day coordinator for Stephanie and Brad’s big day back in August, and if you’ve ever worked a full wedding day you know how close you can get in a day, so it felt like Sarah and I were old friends by the time this shoot rolled around!  I had yet to meet her husband or little girl though so I was extra excited for that!  And little Lauren was even cuter in person than the pictures I had seen – so it made my job easy!  Meet Miss Lauren and the Knowlton family:

Denver Family Photographer :: The Yongue Family

Everyone should give this family a little cheer because they FINALLY got a shoot with SUN and warm temps!! They’ve been basically cursed in the past (even including their engagement photos and wedding apparently!) so we were all jumping for joy at the amazing weather we had for this shoot!  It was the perfect day. And these guys were such a fun and easy family to photograph – so all in all it was an awesome shoot! :)

Colorado Engagement Photographer :: Lyle and Lauren

Ohhh I love a good mountain engagement session!  And it’s just a bonus when you get the amazing light we had for Lyle and Lauren’s engagement photos!!  Plus, these two were so easy to photograph because they’re so happy and in love – my job was easy!  And as we were driving to Boulder we were chatting about their wedding, which will be just the two of them + a waterfall in Costa Rica… yeah, AMAZING! I’m jealous!

Denver Family Photographer :: Lola, Lars and Lorelei

This shoot! I love it so much. Lindsey and Nick decided to kind of let go of the “traditional” family photos idea and had me just play around with them and take photos as the fun happened.  It was really a great way to do photos and I love how real these photos are!  We also focused a ton on the kids – specifically the new addition to the family, Miss Lorelei!  I hope you guys enjoy this session!

Love this.

Yeah… it was pretty much the Lorelei show! Mostly because these were her first pictures AND she was the easiest to photograph because she couldn’t get away :)
