Denver Family Photographer :: The Kis Family

I finally (after 6 years!!) got to do a photo shoot at Red Rocks this past weekend and it was SO WORTH IT!  Red Rocks is a gorgeous area and the backdrops are stunning!  And the Kis family is just so cute and fun to work with!  Check them out:




Miss Lily!


And Miss Emma!


Gotta love girls in cowboy boots!


Look at those views!


Love this!


Thanks for meeting me so early Kis Family! -Katie

Denver Newborn Photographer :: Welcome to the World Mason!

A few weeks ago one of my FAVORITE families on earth gained a new member!! Mr. Mason was grandson #4, but baby #1 for one of my oldest and dearest friend’s sister!  And somehow these babies keep getting CUTER AND CUTER and I want to know how they do it?! Mason is an absolute doll-baby. He’s perfection. And he slept like a total champ for our shoot and just let us pose him and lay him wherever we wanted!  Dream newborn shoot! :)  Check out baby Mason:


And yes. All 4 boys have now had this thick dark hair and I love it!


This little man already knows his favorite place is his Mommy’s arms.


A favorite!


And Mason is already rockin’ his Aaron Rodgers jersey like a good little Packer fan! We Wisconsinites like to start ’em young! :)


And he loves being a Packer fan already!





Basically everyone is obsessed with Mason now ;)

Blog_16It was so nice to meet you baby Mason!! -Katie

Denver Newborn Photographer :: Welcome to the World Annabelle!

Oh this post (and this baby!) are so special to me!  Some of my nearest and dearest best friends in this world I met in college playing rugby.  We went through so much together and I now we’ve all gone on and moved all over the map and gotten jobs, gotten married … and now one of them HAD A BABY!  My good friend, Nicole, and her husband just moved to Kansas with their new baby girl, Annabelle, so when I had a few days off I decided to hop in my car and drive straight East so I could meet her!

It was such a wonderful few days of catching up with each other and meeting this perfect little peanut and talking all thing Packers with Michael (my friend’s husband) and OF COURSE doing a few photos because that’s what I’m good at! ;)  We included a lot of things that are special to Nicole and Michael and – now – Annabelle.  A old bonnet that belonged to baby Nicole.  Nicole’s wedding dress. Their dogs! And – my favorite – a quilt that Nicole’s sister-in-law made out of pretty baby girl fabrics but that also included fabric from a few shirts that belonged to Nicole’s Dad who died a few years ago.  So special.  Without further ado … Meet Annabelle!!


These are Annie’s big bother and sister Tater and Lolli!  Two of THE sweetest dogs I’ve ever met.


Goofy Tater


My favorite!


I know she’s dreaming of her Grandpa and smiling because she’s so loved!


I am so glad I got to meet you Annabelle! -Katie

Denver Family Photographer :: Deacon is 1!!

Another one of my first-year package babies turns 1!  It’s always bitter sweet as we do our last session of their first year because I know I won’t see these cute babies and their families as often, but I love that I’ve been able to capture them as they grow!  Mr. Deacon (and big sister Charlotte) are SUCH cute kiddos and Deacon has a great baby belly laugh that had me laughing during our whole shoot!  Check out this goofy baby!




Way back 2 years ago when we did Charlotte’s 1st birthday photos she had balloons so we had to bust out balloons for Deacon too!




snuggle bug!


Love this!


How cute is Miss Charlotte!


Happiest of birthday’s baby Deacon! – Katie
