Denver Engagement Photographer :: Matt and Heidi

I mentioned yesterday how we had been having such wonderful weather in Denver this winter… until it decided to dump snow on us when I had a bunch of shoots scheduled!  Luckily for me, I have awesome clients who will brave a little snow for some really fun and unique pictures!  I can’t wait for Heidi and Matt’s wedding day this spring!!

Denver Family Photographer :: Awadalla Family

Denver’s winter so far has been SO mild.  A lot of 60 degree days (or warmer!) and lots of sun!  It’s been a dream winter to do shoots… except that I’ve had virtually NONE until this past weekend where I had 3 scheduled just in time for it to dump 6 inches of snow on us!  Not to be deterred, the Awadalla family went ahead with our plans for a shoot and even braved the winter wonderland outside for some photos – which I love!!  AND! Little Deacon is my favorite, favorite age of 6 months old and he was such a cute happy dude!  And big sister Charlotte brought the laughs for everyone!  Check out this cute family:

Denver Family Photographer :: Lincoln is 1!

And so another first-year series comes to an end.  I’m sure this won’t be the last time I photograph little Lincoln, but this will really be the last time I do so with him as a baby – and the last time I see him so frequently!   His shoots have been such a pleasure and he is SUCH a cute, happy little guy!  He’s definitely gained an independent streak along with the ability to walk since I last saw him, which made this session a lot more running around for all of the adults!  Happiest first birthday Linc!!

Love this!  We’ve used this basket in all 3 of his shoots now :)

Denver Family Photographer :: Avery is 6 months old!

I love a cute baby! And I REALLY love a cute 6 month old baby!  And even though Miss Avery gave me a run for my money and wouldn’t crack a smile at any of my awesome tricks, she’s still SO adorable and sweet and perfect that it didn’t matter and her photos turned out wonderful!  Such a doll baby :)

Blog_1Blog_2

Look at those eyes!

Blog_3Blog_4

Best Photos of 2014 :: Part 2 (August – December)

Are you ready for part 2 of my favorite photos of the year?!  Fall is BY FAR my busiest season of the year for shoots so there’s more packed into less months in the Fall, but I love it!!  I’m the kind of person who always longs for lazy days, but I’m just made to be busy. I’m always, always busy.  I just work better that way!  But. Let’s move on to the photos! Starting with a shoot I did for one of my best friend’s sister’s baby boy Oliver, who is THE CUTEST:

Then the DiMatteo family asked me to do an extended family shoot for them that included NINE kids, I was game – but apprehensive – because that’s a LOT of kids … but they all nailed it!!  They were a blast and frankly just EASY to photograph!
