Newlywed Portrait Photography | Red Rocks at Mount Falcon Morrison, Colorado

ver the weekend I had a session scheduled with Alison and her husband Gabriel at the Mount Falcon east trail head in Morrison, Colorado. I was a little worried because the weather report was saying that it might be pretty windy and wind is definitely my least favorite weather element to work with when it comes to photography. Sure, a little soft breeze to gently blow someone's hair looks pretty awesome but we all know the misery that is a full on windy day here during March in Colorado. When I arrived the sky was looking pretty dramatic with lots of clouds and I was sure the wind was going to pick up but we actually got really lucky and it stayed fairly calm. Calm enough for us to work with it anyway. Alison and Gabriel are newlyweds and just got married in January this year. They wanted to get some pictures to celebrate their new life together and next month we'll meet up again to photograph the whole family together. For now, I hope they enjoy all of these lovely romantic photos of the two of them together.  
Congratulations to the happy couple!

Colorado Springs Family Photography | Rock Ledge Ranch at Garden of the Gods

ast week I got to meet the cutest family with the sweetest little 3 year old girl and her baby brother too. Their grandma who they affectionately call "Gigi" was in town visiting from Wisconsin and wanted to get some family pictures taken together while she was out here. We decided to give Rock Ledge Ranch a go for our portrait location. I've only photographed near there on the outskirts where the American Mother's Chapel is and never further in where all of the historic farm buildings are located. It was a ton of fun hanging out with them walking around, looking at the ducks chasing each other around the pond and creating these portraits together. We ended the session at sunset just outside of Garden of the Gods where there is a beautiful view of the stunning red rock formations stacked up in front of the pretty blue mountains. By the time sunset came the wind was howling pretty good and these poor kiddos were freezing so we finished up as quickly as we could. I think we got a lot of really cute pictures of the four of them together. Can't wait to do it again when their daddy who is in the service comes home!

Denver Headshot Photos | Downtown Denver at Larimer Square

arna's company contacted me to set up a headshot session for her because they are doing a feature on her celebrating 20 years with the company. That is quite a feat in this day and age when people tend to move around and change up their career quite often. Since Karna works downtown and I really love using Larimer Square we decided to meet up over there for her headshot photo shoot. As always the string lights hanging over Larimer street look awesome at dusk. But I also love the pretty blue geometric mural by Gemma Danielle painted next to Cherry Creek so we incorporated it into her headshots. The blue of the wall and of the water in Cherry Creek looked great with Karna's pretty blue eyes!

Denver Maternity Photographer | Street Art in River North Art District and Curtis Park Neighborhood

aura and Chase got married in 2011 at a pretty farm in Boulder. It truly does not feel like it was that long ago, but it has already been almost 6 years. I was so excited for them when I heard that they are pregnant with their first child. And of course I was more than happy to meet up and photograph them around the Rino Art District near downtown Denver for their maternity portraits. Chase is quite the shutterbug himself (you can follow him on instagram where he shows off a lot of cool architectural and street scene type of photography. Laura mentioned how much they both like the area around Central Market at 27th and Larimer. There is a ton of cool street art all over the place in that area so that's where we met for their session. It's actually been a pretty long time since I have walked around over there (during daylight hours anyway) and it was cool to see all of the new paintings and shops and restaurants that have gone up since I lived in the neighborhood over ten years ago now. A highlight was definitely the alley covered in Stranger Things street art. And I was also pleased to find another geometric mural from Gemma Danielle outside of the Crema coffee shop. I recently discovered her work at a different session from earlier this year and I just love how it looks in my client's photos! We even found a really cool building with some red accent paint that matched beautifully with Laura's awesome red blouse. I'm so glad we were able to get these colorful photos of these two together as they excitedly wait for the little one to arrive.
