Denver Newborn Photographer :: Welcome to the World Deacon!

I recently did a family/maternity shoot for the Awadalla family (who’s family photos I’d done twice before the news of the new baby) and I was SO excited to hear that baby Deacon had arrived and it was time to come meet him and do some newborn/family photos!  He was simply perfect and so sweet and while he made Mom and Dad work pretty hard for a while during our shoot to get him to sleep for some naked-baby-photos, he did finally sleep and was the perfect little model!  And big sister Charlotte was as full of energy and personality and spunk as ever!  Check out the new, family-of-4, Awadalla family:

Denver Family Photographer :: The Ripes Family

The last time I did family photos for the Ripes, their now-4-year-old, Molly, was only a baby… so it was SO fun to see them this time around and meet the walking, talking, adorable KID version of Molly!  She was a totally new and awesome person to get to know, while at the same time I got to re-meet (because he was pretty young last time too) her super sweet older brother, Cody!  These guys were so easy to work with and smiled like pros the whole time and I LOVED the little spot Carrie found for us to shoot, so I am SO excited to share this session with you!!  Starting with this adorable picture!

Denver Wedding Photography :: Levi and Mary

I really love very few things in this world more than photographing a wedding day full of love, happiness, an awesome bridal party, beautiful details and perfect light.  Mary and Levi had exactly that kind of day and it was nothing but a pleasure to be a part of!  Oh, and they served macaroni and cheese at their reception, which is basically HEAVEN after working 10 hours before getting to eat! :)  But food aside, I feel so honored to have gotten to be a part of their wedding, to have had the chance to get to know both of their wonderful families and friends and to have been able to whitness the start of their lives together!  Mary and Levi – I hope you are enjoying honeymooning and being newlyweds and I am so excited to share these photos with you!!

Mr and Mrs!!!

Blog_73Blog_74Blog_75

Love these!  Especially that one of the three siblings on the left – too sweet!

Blog_76

I had to include these two pictures. Because the day before the wedding it called for rain all day (very very rare for Colorado) and I was beside myself trying to figure out what I was going to do about pictures. Luckily the sky stayed mostly sunny all morning and only started to darken as we were arriving at the reception. About 10 minutes later… it was POURING!!  It lasted about 10 minutes and was dry the rest of the night! Perfect, perfect timing!

Blog_77

Mary’s maid of honor and Levi’s best man gave some wonderful toasts!

Denver Newborn Photographer :: Welcome to the World Avery!

I kind of love when friends have babies. It’s so fun!  Avery is the newest addition to my friends Steph and Zac’s family and she couldn’t be more precious and perfect!  She had to spend a few extra days in the hospital after she was born so I had to wait SO PATIENTLY to meet her. ;)  But now she’s home and she was an absolute dream to photograph and even though she was WIDE awake the entire time, she barely let out a peep and happily let us do pretty much anything with her!  Meet Avery:

Blog_1

she was *almost* wide awake the whole time ;)

Blog_2Blog_3Blog_4Blog_5

Peanut!

Blog_6Blog_7

I think she is a very loved little girl!

Blog_8Blog_9Blog_10Blog_11Blog_12

Love this!

Blog_13Blog_14

So glad you are here Avery and so excited for you Steph and Zac!! Can’t wait to watch her grow! -Katie
