Oh my goodness, there are so many adorable baby faces on the blog today. This sweet little baby had his first professional photos taken with mom and dad at a place up in Loveland, Colorado called "Devil's Backbone." This place is appropriately named due to the crazy rocky ridge. We got pretty lucky with a fairly warm day for March sandwiched right between two colder days. This little guy was such a great sport for his photo session, not only looking right at the camera but even giving us some smiles which don't always happen at such a young age. I couldn't be more pleased with how these turned out!
One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is when the couples I photograph keep in touch and I get to see their little families start to grow and change. I photographed Kerry and Eric a few years ago at their wedding in Boulder and I was so excited when they let me know that they were having a baby last spring. Now their sweet little baby girl is one years old and they wanted to get some family photos taken together. They told me about a place near their house called Crown Hill Park which I had no idea even existed which is weird because I've been scoping out locations and lived in Denver for a long time now and this place is pretty huge. After they mentioned it, I did a quick drive by since it's not too far from me and I knew it would be the perfect location for their family photos. It's a huge place and not only is there a lake, but there are multiple tree-lined pathways with tall grasses and the best part is the ridiculous view of the mountains. It is quite the hidden gem and I have to thank Kerry and Eric for clueing me in to its existence. Due to the sun setting later and later these days and with 1 year old babies having early bedtimes we shortened our session to take place closer to sunset since we weren't sure how long Ashlynn would last that late at night. She was such a little trooper and we managed to get some smiles along with her serious looks too. She's just learning to walk as well and I love the photos we were able to get with her experimenting with her new skill of walking and standing by herself!
Earlier this month I met up with the cutest little family at the South Mesa Trail in south Boulder. This precious little girl just turned one and her mama wanted to mark the occasion with some nice family portraits so we spent a couple hours walking around the trail and surrounding area. Hanorah was named after her grandma and I think it's one of the prettiest names I've heard in a long time. She went back and forth with giving me her serious baby looks mixed in with her sweet little smile too. And that outfit! Flower headband with a pretty peach dress and jean jacket? Too cute! I just love this age with children because they're still babies but their personalities shine through and they aren't helpless little newborns anymore. Hanorah did an excellent job at her photo shoot and lasted quite awhile for someone her age too. Here's just a small selection of what we got!
Ihave a special blog post for today. The reason it's so special is that it features the adorable Robbie, who is the first son of an old friend of mine. Robbie's momma, Kate and I go way back actually. She's one of my oldest friends. We've been friends for so long that I can't even remember the exact first time that we met. I suspect that it was band class in 6th grade at Sunset Middle School in Longmont, Colorado. Kate was a terrific french horn player while I played the clarinet badly, haha. We were even roommates for a couple of years during college while we both pursued art degrees here in the Denver area (mine in photography and hers in graphic design). I have a lot of friends who have children these days, but I have to admit that it's a little more surreal when your oldest friends that you grew up with start having babies of their own! I loved photographing Robbie. He looks just like his daddy and gave me some pretty serious faces for most of our photoshoot. But, then he'd throw out a crazy look here and there and a couple of smiles as well to keep us on our toes. What a little lovebug! Isn't that pout of his just so stinkin' cute?
Can you believe that is the same baby?! Haha.
