Denver Family Photographer :: The Kern Family!

This family is such a fun family and I have always loved doing their shoots!  It’s been so fun to watch the kiddos grow and become more than just siblings, but also really like best friends!  AND these guys totally nailed the “christmas photos outfits” (aka looking really festive and coordinating without being dressed like christmas trees ;)) and we had a perfect Colorado winter day (aka it was sunny and warm!) and overall I think this shoot was the perfect way for me to end 2014!

Denver Family Photographer :: Tate is 1!!

Happiest of first birthdays to Tate!  It was so fun to have been a part of his whole first year of life!  He is such a funny, handsome, curious and adorable little man!!  I loved coming out to his house and doing some pictures of him and his family – AND it was on his actual birthday so I got to wish him an official happy birthday. :)  Check out how big and cute he has gotten!

Denver Family Photographer :: Charley is 6mo old!

Little Charley is a DOLL BABY!  I just saw her last week at her Aunt Leah’s wedding that I shot and she was the happiest little nugget for the whole day and I was crossing my fingers she would be just as happy for our 6 month old shoot – and she totally was!  Smiles all day long!  And she just loves her big sisters (both of whom I’ve photographed lots of times!) and I just love all these pictures!

I mean, how happy and adorable are these girlies?!

LOVE this!

We used this dresser for Charley’s newborn photos so we had to stick her on it again :)

Colorado Wedding Photographer :: Kunlong and Leah

I really, really love shooting weddings days.  I mean yes, they are LONG days and can be pretty stressful because I’m responsible for capturing a huge day in these peoples’ lives… BUT! They are one of those days where everyone in my photos is just so blissfully happy and everything is gorgeous and Leah and Kunlong’s wedding was no exception.  They had such a beautiful day. The weather alone was amazing and they were both so excited and ready to get married and everything went smoothly and it was so perfectly suited to the both of them.  It was a wonderful day all around and I’m so excited to share all these photos!  Starting with the girls getting ready at Leah’s parents home in the mountains (how amazing is that view!):

Blog_1Blog_2

Leah has 3 sisters who have added 7 grandkids to the family in the last 5 years so there were LOTS of kiddos running around and playing (or napping) all morning!

Blog_3Blog_4Blog_5

Little Sydney (who has graced this blog many times since her newborn photos!) was SO into this whole day.  She loved getting dressed up and getting her hair done and watching her Aunt Leah get ready and she loooooved dancing the night away :)

Blog_6

A couple more Biber grandkids…

Blog_7Blog_8Blog_9Blog_10

As Leah’s mom helped her into her dress Sydney and Sybil could. not. stop. giggling to each other.  It was the sweetest and most genuine reaction, I love it!

I’m obsessed with this bouquet!  Leah works on a farm and her and Kunlong met while working at a Whole Foods and amazing fresh food is so important to them both … so she has artichokes and kale and fresh herbs included in her flowers. SO cool!

Blog_21

Then it was off to see the boys!  Kunlong and his handsome son Greyson getting ready!

Look at all these handsome guys!

The Evergreen Lakehouse was the perfect spot for the big day!

Time to get married!

Blog_33

Love these!

Blog_34Blog_35Blog_36Blog_37

Kunlong and Leah wrote their own vows and both did such a good job!

Blog_38Blog_39

They also wrote vows to Greyson, which was such a special moment.

Blog_40Blog_41

Blog_62Blog_63Blog_64

Then it was time to celebrate!! And the lake house was decorated gorgeously!

Blog_65Blog_66Blog_67

Oh. and. Leah made all her own wedding food. YUP. Awesome!

Blog_68Blog_69

And they had some really wonderful friends and family toast them.

Blog_70Blog_71Blog_72Blog_73Blog_74Blog_75

Desserts!

Blog_76Blog_77

And the couple included Greyson in a pretty awesome – and highly untraditional – first dance!

Blog_78Blog_79

Greyson’s got some sweet moves!

Blog_80

Then it was time to dance the night away!

Blog_81Blog_82Blog_83Blog_84Blog_85

And the night ended with a fun streamer send-off…

And one heck of a mountain sunset!

Denver Family Photographer :: The Daugherty Family!!

I think 6 months old is officially my FAVORITE age of kid to photograph.  They so full of life and happiness and all it takes is a simple “peek a boo!” to get a huge smile and they can’t run away from me yet! ;)   Little Charlie was the model baby for our shoot, which was great because it made the whole thing go so smoothly!  And that was especially great for his parents who were hosting a “friendsgiving” dinner later that day AND are about to move! CRAZY!  But the weather was gorgeous and Charlie was a doll and we got awesome shots!

Who can resist kissing chunk baby cheeks!?

Blog_17

And OF COURSE we had to get some chunky nakey baby photos, because it’s the best best age to do them! LOVE!
