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

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

L
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 @cnh.photo) 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.

Denver Maternity Photography | Lookout Mountain Nature Preserve and Buffalo Bill

E
lizabeth and Jed are two of my favorite people that I've ever met in roller derby. Elizabeth also has one of the most kick ass roller derby names in all of the land. It's Queen Elizabitch for inquiring minds out there. Queenie came to Rocky Mountain Rollergirls first and later Jed joined as a referee where he met this sassy blonde beauty and fell in love. Sadly, none of us are skating for Rocky these days but Queen actually has a really good excuse now because she and Jed are preparing for their first baby. They are actually moving forward with lots of really awesome big life changes these days. They recently moved into a beautiful new home that was custom built for them just a short drive up I-70 to Lookout Mountain. They're just down the street from the trails at Boettcher Mansion and Buffalo Bill's grave where we decided to do most of their maternity pictures you see here. When I arrived at their home the field next to their house was full of one of the biggest herds of elk I've ever seen. And they have a beautiful view of the mountains looking out from their big back patio. I am so happy for them and I cannot wait to hold their new baby and a beer while watching the sunset this summer. And here's hoping that Sugar (their adorable white kitty who is currently rocking a lion haircut) will jump onto my lap as well!

Winter Wonderland Family Photography | Vail Colorado

T
his family came all the way to Colorado from Australia to get some family time together in the snowy winter wonderland that is Vail. It was a bit of a chilly day so we didn't spend too much time outside walking the streets so that their little guy wouldn't get too cold. We were lucky that their view from the Sebastian Hotel was so spectacular. I hope they enjoyed their time on the slopes and keeping warm afterward together in front of the nice warm fireplace!
