T&J Engagement!

I was so pleased to be hired by T&J to take photos for their wedding in June 2012. We got together last weekend to shoot their engagement photos. Poudre Canyon was still holding it's color, after this snow we just had, not so sure what's left. One of my favorite spots to shoot has a little grove of trees, beach right by the river, trails, and many places to get some great shots! I wore my muck boots so I could get in the river to get the right angle, yes, I will do anything for a great shot! :-)

I love the feeling of Fall in this photo

They were so cute!

Sometimes I think my clients aren't sure what to do with me. When I say, "Now peek around the tree like 'helllloooo'" and start laughing, I expect them to tell me to leave, lol. Every time, though, they laugh and go with it, I love that!!

Am looking forward to June more and more. Sounds like it is going to be a beautiful wedding!

~D&A~ Say I Do!

I was so pleased that D&A asked me to capture their big day! It was the last wedding of the season for me, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. The venue was beautiful, and everyone was so nice.

I love getting shots of the "stuff"

The colors were so perfect for a Fall wedding!

The girls were so funny, I love telling them "get sassy"! This is what they came up with :-)

The more I see the sand art, the more I like it

Mr. and Mrs. N!

They were so cute, couldn't keep their hands off each other after the ceremony, I love seeing such pure Love!

It was a GREAT wedding season, couldn't have asked for better clients to work with. Thank you to everyone who helped, my wonderful assistants, and everyone involved with each wedding. Looking forward to 2012!

~B&M~ Canyon Engagement Session

I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful couple yesterday. ~M~ won my Facebook contest I held a few months ago, and was thrilled that she was able to get a free engagement session with me!

 We met in Poudre Canyon at one of my favorite locations. The river wasn't too high, so we had a lot of areas we could use.

I am all about the kissing photos! hehe

I am looking forward to working with them again after their big day. Probably in the canyon again! I can't get enough of that location!

Family Session 9-26-11

I gave a friend of mine a gift certificate for her baby shower. I got a chance to redeem it while in Michigan. I hadn't met her handsome little man yet, and my heart just melted. I love this girl with all my heart and I feel the same about little ~S~. He was such a ham, even though it was nap time. I was right in my element too, seeing as they are farmers and we trekked around in the hay meadows and cow pastures! We even got a shot of Little ~S~ on one of their tame bulls, that was exciting!

I was in love with the fall colors up there.

How could I have asked for a better backdrop???

Blue jean baby! I had found that green and yellow shirt before I headed up north, and it was SO well with his John Deere hat!

Was sad I didn't get a chance to get together with them again, time just seems to fly! Hoping to see them when I return Thanksgiving weekend! Love you guys!

Family Session 9-25-11

A good friend of mine asked me to take her family photos while in Michigan. This woman is pretty much the reason I met my other half :-) We used to have so much fun when I lived just down the road many years ago! When I showed up we went right back into our normal spats back and forth, it was so much fun!

Smiles were all around as they laughed at each other and at me!

I fell in love with the corn when I showed up, this shot just made itself!

Oh teenage daughters :-) They are such a sweet family.

We had to bust out "Olly" the restored tractor. This is Grandpa's pride and joy!

I am so happy that I got to see this wonderful family again! The weather wasn't perfect, but we dealt with it, as always! Looking forward to taking ~M~'s senior photos next Summer! Love you guys!

~W&S~ Say I do! 9-17-11

September 17th was a busy day for me!

I had done W&S's engagement photos so I knew this would be a fun wedding. This was the first wedding I shot where I took the photos before the wedding. I got to capture the special "first look" shot, and I got chills. ~W~ was so patient, but let us know it was "so unfair" that he couldn't see ~S~ while I set up the shot, hehe.

They are such a sweet couple, ~W~ kept telling her how beautiful she looked. I enjoy weddings so much, they make my heart melt every time...

Some leaves had started to fall, but we still had some really nice green grass....

I love Fall wedding colors!

Each wedding always becomes my favorite, I can't lie. The more I do them, the more people I meet, and the happier I get. The fact this couple actually climbed a jungle gym before the wedding, now that is fun!!

9-17-11 Little ~E~ Three Months!!

I had the pleasure of taking Little ~E~'s three month photos on September 17th. I met her at her newborn session back in June. She still has a TON of hair!! We went to the flower garden in Fort Collins, and thankfully the flowers were still in bloom :-)

Beautiful hair! I just can't get over it!
Like I always mention, family is key. I love incorporating everyone present in the shoot. Makes for a really fun day! 

They are such a fun family! Little ~I~ was all over the place (as she should be, she is almost two!), so it was fun chasing her to get her in the shot, and making things exciting for her as well as Little ~E~.

There is nothing like a Mother and her girls!

Looking forward to working with this family again! They are a hoot and a pure pleasure to work with.

9-7-11 Newborn

Catching up with my blogging is becoming a bit difficult! Seeing as it is October first, I plan on getting at least September blogged by my first October session (on the 7th).

On the seventh of September I met a beautiful baby boy! I made sure the room was warm, and was all prepared. However, I have found that I like nontraditional newborn photography. Let the session take itself. Maybe a few props, maybe a common pose here and there. For the most part, though, I like letting the child direct me. Let him sleep on the beanbag and snuggle up, detail shots are taken then. Let his Mom comfort him back into sleep, loving shots are taken then.

I love this one...he was giving them a present as I shot :-)
Oh little sweet

So, as we all know I love to shoot the WHOLE time, to get the sweet candid photos. I love baby peach fuzz, I love little wrinkles. You will see those when I shoot newborns, that's what makes them so precious.
