Wow, it's already New Year's Eve and and I find myself compiling all of my favorite images created for clients throughout the year. This is one of my favorite blog posts to create every year because I get to look back and remember all of the wonderful people I've met. I'm so thankful for what I do and for the trust that is placed in me to capture these family memories for so many. I want to thank all of my clients from 2016 and from year's past for your business. Here's to a 2017 as good as 2016!
Tonight as I was finishing up a session in the mountains I got a text from one of my oldest friends, Susan, that she is gearing up to spend the night at the hospital to wait for her baby girl to arrive. I have been meaning to share her beautiful maternity photos on the blog and figured now is a great time to finally get these online. I am so thrilled for her and her husband Joe. It is taking all of my restraint to stay at home and let her relax until tomorrow when I finally will get to meet her sweet lil angel. I forced her and Joe to meet up with me and capture some quick maternity portraits over at Crown Hill Open Space back in early October. I couldn't let her get away with not at least getting a small handful of photos of her beautiful pregnant body. What an incredibly special time in their lives. I'm so excited!!!!
About five years ago I photographed a wedding in front of one of the most breathtaking views I've seen in all of Colorado. Jenn and Joe had selected Piney River Ranch near Vail for their wedding. There is a photo we created of them as the sun set in front of that gorgeous mountain view that is still one of my all-time favorites I've ever taken. Jenn wrote to me a couple of months ago to let me know that they are expecting twins! I'm so thrilled for them knowing that in just a few short months their lives are going to change in the most incredible way. There is a really neat park up on the northwest side of the metro area in Arvada called Majestic View Park and it definitely lives up to it's name. When we arrived for the session there was a lot of haze hiding the mountains and I was nervous that the views wouldn't be quite as majestic as they normally are. We were lucky though and by the time sunset came around it had cleared off a little and we were able to capture some photos with the nice view. There is also a nice little garden area at the nature center at this park which we definitely took advantage of. I just love all of the bright colored leaves we were able to use as a backdrop for their maternity pictures.
Congratulations Jenn & Joe! I can't wait to meet your little ones next year!
Iwas lucky enough to get to photograph Jill and Michael during the fall just a couple of years ago in the Aspen area for their autumn engagement session. We went to the Maroon Bells for part of their session and the colors throughout all of Aspen looked incredible for that session. They got married last summer and contacted me recently with the awesome news that they are expecting a new baby soon. This time Jill wanted to get some pretty outdoor snow photos for the maternity session. The weather didn't cooperate for us on our first date so we pushed our session back a little bit. I'm glad we did because we were able to take advantage of the pretty snowy scenery as well as the pretty holiday decor that just popped up in the hotels and streets of Aspen. The colorful lights and glittery ornamentation added a nice touch to some of their photos. They have the best present ever on the way and I'm so glad that we were able to photograph them during this really sweet and special time in their lives.
