We have been blessed with the best neighbors at our home in Stapleton. And so, when Colleen and Brian asked me to shoot a few photos of their darling daughter Kes on Colleen’s favorite day, Halloween, I jumped at the chance. And have felt guilty ever since that I never posted any of my favorites from that day. But since she just turned two this week and I was honored to photograph her on this landmark occasion as well, I figured I’d just share photos of Kes…five months apart! She is such a delight to be around; I think you will reach the same conclusion from the photos below. Thanks, Colleen and Brian, for including me on these special days!
Okay, here are just a few more photos from our last photo shoot. What a beautiful family!!!
Oh, how sweet he is! My fourth (!) grandson was born last week and I couldn’t wait to share just a few of the photos I shot the other day (when I wasn’t snuggling!). We are going to take lots more of him and his parents and his big brother Nolan this weekend, but I couldn’t wait to share these few for now.
At four days old he has already figured out how avoid the pacifier!
I can’t help but smile as I look at these photos, first and foremost, because the subjects are my daughter and son-in-law, Karlyn and Chris, and my grandson Nolan. And also because my newest grandson is going to be joining this wonderful family any day now! We managed to squeeze this very short (about 20 minutes) session into a very cold Sunday afternoon, but what I loved best is how Nolan looked at his mom during one of my favorite shots. Once the baby comes, I’ll post the photo Karlyn and I have been working on over the past 20 weeks of the pregnancy, one similar to the montage we did of her and Nolan after he was born: Pregnancy Project. All we need now is the baby!
This photo features the adorable “monsters” my sister-in-law Betsy sewed out of an old sweater she felted and then designed herself. Notice that the one for Nolan has red hair!
A few weeks ago one of my former yearbook students from OHS contacted me about taking just “one” profile photo. When you look at how beautiful Kelly is, you can see why I could not stop at one! Here are just a few from our session today. It was wonderful being able to photograph Kelly and also to spend some time catching up!
In the three weeks I spent with newborns Teddy and Holden, I took hundreds of photos. But I wanted to share just a few of the ones of them together for this blog. I’m already plotting my next trip back east because I’m not sure I can go much longer without holding these precious boys. And since I took these photos, they have put on lots of weight and grow cuter by the day. Thank heavens for Facetime!! Merry Christmas, Janet and Andrew and Holden and Teddy!!
I love this book and am going to make enlargements of the following two photos to put on the wall in their room.
Danny and Annie are two of my favorite people on earth. And when I was given the privilege of photographing their September wedding, I was thrilled. Last fall I shot their engagement photos up near Morrison (and included one photo here just for fun) and then looked forward to this fall when we could capture their special day. Both families were incredibly gracious and warm and made the event even better for me and my assistant Josh. And Danny and Annie? Just look for yourselves to see how absolutely fabulous they were. Congratulations!
Okay, quick disclaimer. My twin grandsons were born yesterday in DC and I can’t wait to post photos of these darling boys in the next few days. In the meantime, I have had the privilege of photographing babies and toddlers and seniors and families and more over the past several weeks. And I’ve done no blogging at all because, oh, just because. But when I’m not holding babies over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to share my favorites of lots of recent photo shoots.
So, let’s begin with a few quick shots of Baby Beckett and his darling sister Kenzy. Congratulations, Tim and Maggie, and I can’t wait to do the “real” newborn session when I get back from DC!
Maggie and I had a great time plotting out our ideas for her maternity session last weekend, and Tim and Kenzy were fabulous models/participants! I cannot wait for Kenzy’s baby brother to be born! Thanks, Maggie and Tim, for being so flexible with poses (both literally and figuratively!). And I could photograph Kenzy all day long; I love that little girl!
I loved this idea so much I tried another effect to see it with a more faded look.
I love photographing Brooklyn and Skylar. Not only are they so much fun to watch grow up together, but they own the camera. Parents Shannon and Amanda met me at the Farmers’ Market in Stapleton on a recent Sunday so I could quickly capture them with “proof” that they are two. Holding still was NOT a priority (until Amanda fed them at the end, of course), but that didn’t matter as the pauses between the poses were more fun than trying to get them to smile for the camera!
Once we were done “posing,” it was time to run around the green. I LOVE their sunglasses!
And every two year old needs a few minutes of quiet time with mom and a snack.
