Oh, those little finger and toes!  The little lips, little yawns;  all so very precious.  This is one of my opportunities to snuggle up with a baby (that’s not furry and not my Dora) and photograph those little adorablenesses.  Enjoy!

I often am asked to photograph the family fur baby in with a family portrait, but not often do I get the opportunity to photograph a dog’s family.  Such is this session.  Puppy Bella was being adopted and her human family wanted to photograph her and her parents, both for memory’s sake (such a delightful puppy!) and for pedigree.    Bella’s original adoption fell through and these photographs helped not only find her a new home, but create such a buzz that she had her pick of new homes to go to!

I enjoy giving a portrait session away to help a charity.  Not only do I get to use my talents in benefit for another, but I usually meet the most interesting and kind-hearted people through it.  I met the Holland family in just this way.  Such a fun family, full of genuine smiles that radiate through the images.

Shortly after the session, I had the wonderful privilege of putting a canvas gallery wrap on their wall of their favorite family portrait!

I’ve known Brayden’s family for years and captured many of their family portraits.  It was such a pleasure when I got the call for Brayden’s senior portraits.  I had heard of “Rosie,” his truck and insisted he bring her along.  We spent some time in Red Rock Open Space near Manitou and captured these great portraits.  Enjoy your senior year, Brayden!

Sara & Joseph’s wedding was as full of life as they are!  Their wedding day was filled with hand-crafted amazingness, lovingly brought together by both families.  Personal details were throughout, like lace from Sara’s mother’s wedding dress both on her own dress and her veil.  The bride put a shock of blue around her crinoline to match her bright blue shoes.  Love it!

It was a bright, beautiful day on Cheyenne mountain.  Without a cloud in the sky, you could see all of Colorado Springs laid out below.  The ceremony was traditional, as befitting this couple;  spending time with their families before the ceremony and not seeing each other until the bride came down the aisle.  One of my favorite moments was when the newlywed’s parents came and prayed blessings on them.  Such a wonderful sight of family and friends stretching their hands toward the couple, sending their blessings as well.

Family talents were all over the place;  hand made bouquets, hand-sewn details, music before and during the ceremony as well as at the reception and ALL the amazing food!  Even one of the bride’s sisters made and decorated the cake.

Before the day was over, we snuck the newly wed couple out in to the scrub a bit for some more romantic images.  They were awesome sports;  I think their wedded bliss kept them completely blind that they were getting blasted in mid-day Colorado mountain sun.

Congratulations Sara + Joseph!!
