Taylor at Garden of the Gods

I am thrilled that I had the privilege of photographing Taylor for her senior photos. I have known Taylor since she was born, and have loved watching her play volleyball for her state championship high school team. Since her mom (and my dear friend) coached my daughters in high school, this seems only fitting! Taylor chose Garden of the Gods for our first location and I could have photographed there all day, especially since the torrential rains of the early afternoon had passed and the sky cleared just in time for some amazing backdrops, both at the garden and our other locations. Here’s to a great senior year, Taylor!


Max & McCall Marry at the Pines at Genesee

Oh, what a beautiful day…and night! I have been photographing McCall since she was quite young and was thrilled to photograph her wedding to Max. If I had to pick a favorite moment from this incredible day, I am not sure I could as there were so many highlights, from the reveal to the ceremony itself to the most amazing, incredible, joyous reception I have ever photographed.   Congratulations, Max and McCall!!! Here are just a few photos to keep you smiling today and beyond.

Amanda at Golden History Park

Oh. My. The location was perfect. The light was perfect. And Amanda was perfection. I was thrilled when her mom, Christina, contacted me about taking Amanda’s senior photos for many reasons, not least of which is that I have known Christina since she took my yearbook class for three years. Christina was one of my favorite students, and Amanda’s session is one of my favorite ever senior sessions. She is playful, funny, warm, and gorgeous. And her sister Corinna is equally delightful.  I love being able to take a few photos of the family during my senior sessions when possible, and they all helped make this session a blast. (Thanks, Rob, for being a great assistant as well!) Here’s to a great senior year, Amanda!

Jason & Katie Marry at Church Ranch Event Center

Ah, the luck of the Irish! Or at least the luck of a wonderful couple who married on St. Patrick’s Day on the best of days, weather wise and celebration wise as well. Jason and Katie were so much fun to photograph–and watching them revel in their special day made everything even better. From the ceremony itself to the last dance, these two surrounded themselves with dear friends and family and kept us all smiling. Congratulations, Jason and Katie!

Congratulations, Class of 2018!

Oh my, time flies! Just yesterday it seems I was photographing seniors and enjoying their excitement about their last year of high school. Now, with spring and graduation approaching, they are even more excited about the adventures that await them. Still, my favorite time is right before that last year starts, when the flowers are still blooming and senioritis is just an idea instead of a reality. So here, belatedly, are some of my favorite photos of members of the class of 2018.






Love at First Sight

New Year’s Resolution (once again!): Blog! And because I love to theme my blogs, here are a few of my favorite photos of “young” love. Sometimes it s because there is nothing like the love we feel for newborns. And sometimes it is because that joy makes me smile even more than normal. And sometimes I just need to remind myself that with this kind of love, we are all good.



Lauren & David Marry at Hudson Gardens

I loved this wedding! And this couple! And their families and friends! Monday snowstorm that destroyed all the flowers? Who cares? Winds whipping through the venue? Great veil shots! Amazing ceremony and reception? Nailed it!

Thank you, Lauren and David, for this special opportunity to document the beginning of your lives together. The love you share for each other is so clear. Congratulations!!


Lauren & David at City Park

I love posting each couple’s engagement photos (which were often taken months ago) right before the wedding as it reminds us all how far away the actual wedding date seemed at the time. And then. It’s time!! I am so excited to document Lauren and David’s wedding tomorrow!!  For now, let’s remember a simpler time (and a few rehearsal photos just for fun).

Adorable Kids – Part One

Since I am so bad at blogging for each client, I’ve decided once again to “theme” my blogs with some of my favorite photos…AND a few tips about how you can capture the same kinds of photos if you wish.

Tip #1:  Photograph from their level. I’ve really improved my flexibility photographing little ones!

Tip #2:  Put them in an environment (playground, Radio Flyer, leaves to play with) where they can ignore you and just have some fun.

Tip #3:  Place the parents near you so the kiddo can interact with them and respond.

Tip #4:  With older kids, get to know them. Ask them what they want. Show them what you are doing and get feedback.

Tip #5:  Don’t worry about smiles. Some of my favorite photos show serious/puzzled/amazed expressions rather than just smiles. Of course, when you get that smile, it’s priceless!







Zac & Christa Marry at Della Terra

What a perfect day yesterday was! Which is exactly what Christa and Zac deserved as they (and the wonderful staff at Della Terra outside of Estes Park) took care of every detail to make it wonderful. Because I love to post photos as soon as possible after the ceremony, I’ll keep words to a minimum and just let you enjoy the photos. Congratulations, Zac and Christa! And thank you for the privilege of documenting you and your family and friends; you both amaze and humble me!  (And a special thanks to Matt M for being a great second shooter!)
