{Alyson, Fiona, Nicole & Maddie} :: Denver, CO Family Portrait Photographer

As a new mom of a girl I couldn’t be more excited to watch my daughter June play dress up someday, so when Alyson reached out wanting me to take photos of her and her sister Nicole’s little ones dressed up as Alice In Wonderland and the Queen of Hearts I was overjoyed. Fiona and Maddie totally rocked their handmade Halloween costumes!

Alyson and Nicole definitely know how to style their daughters – the girls continued to sass it up in their street clothes on what was perhaps the most beautiful fall day in Wash Park. Enjoy these fun photos of your girls, Alyson and Nicole!

{Erin, Sameer & Addy} :: Denver, CO Family Portrait Photographer

My friends are pretty cool. Erin and Sameer love getting the chance to document their daughter Addy’s life and checking out new, hip parts of Denver. I have been blessed to capture this family’s ‘moments’ since before Addy was born, then of her as a newborn, at seven months old, and as a toddler. She is about to turn four years old and is one fabulous, smiling young lady. A photo shoot at the newly renovated Union Station was the perfect place for this trendy family. Much love, friends xoxoxo

{Jeni & Ethan} :: Denver, CO Maternity Photographer

Today is my friend Jeni’s due date and I couldn’t be more excited for her and her husband Ethan as they await the moment when they get to meet their baby girl.

I can’t help but think back to their special maternity photo shoot last month. These two were calm, relaxed, and enjoyed a peaceful moment together on a Sunday morning.

Jeni and Ethan – I will be thinking of you guys today and all weekend. Enjoy looking back at these photos of you both waiting for your baby girl.

Molly & Rob {Marriage Proposal} :: Vagabond Ranch | Granby, Colorado

When I decided to become a professional photographer I never dreamed that I would have the unique and special opportunity to capture one of the most intimate moments of a close friend’s life. One week ago, I had the honor of watching and capturing photos of my friend Molly’s engagement to Rob. Operation VRS (Vagabond Ranch Surprise) was the code phrase we used throughout our careful planning process. Rob thought of everything – the ring which combined diamonds from both Molly’s grandmother and his grandmother, the fireworks, which he drove across the country from Texas, the dinner from Hapa Sushi, the location of their first date, a romantic two-person cabin set amongst a backdrop of fresh fallen snow, and a photographer to capture each moment as it unfolded.

I cannot even put into words how happy I am for these two, and how special it was to see their love transform right before my eyes. Molly and Rob, I wish you so many memories just like your special proposal to come in future years. This is just the beginning of your adventure together!

Sarah & John {engaged} :: Denver, Colorado Wedding Photographer

Sarah, John and Copper – what an awesome team! Sarah has that contagious smile, laugh and energetic spirit. John, her perfect match, is fun-loving, calm and cool. Add their dog Copper to the mix and this trio is unstoppable…well, until the pup decides he wants to chase something in the park!

One of Sarah and John’s first dates was by bike and still to this day cycling through downtown Denver remains this couple’s weekend activity of choice. I now have some serious cruiser bike envy after photographing these two joy-riding through town!

Thank you Sarah and John for inviting me to capture you both at a time when your love is off the charts. Seriously, you two are meant to be. I hope you both enjoy this preview from your engagement shoot.
