As a Colorado Photographer, there are phrases and words we use that not everyone understands. But, while working in a school, clever verbiage always pops up that ALL can understand. “Glows, Grows, and Ah-has”. This is where the kiddos focus on something they did well, something they need to work on for next time, and […]

I literally can’t say enough about these Boulder family photos. I love them! I’ve worked at a school with Kirsten, I’ve been invited into their home, and I’ve watched their sons grow up right before my lens. This family is a true blessing and I’m so lucky they continue to choose me as their photographer […]

The Lynch family session in Thornton was probably in my Top Three this year. Guys, it’s hard to make it on that list, so you know it had to be good.  You’re probably thinking that the weather must’ve been perfect, and warm. Nope. Definitely not. It was actually the complete opposite. We froze our you-know-whats […]

As a Colorado wedding photographer, I’m so happy to say that Josh and Alexis are getting married! She said, “Yes!” It’s happening! I’m so dang excited to photograph their 2020 wedding. Weddings are so much fun- the dancing, laughing, and crying because everyone else is crying. But let’s be honest, weddings are fun to photograph […]

This indoor family session filled my cup! As a member of an all women photography group in Denver, we are able to tag our businesses for any  referrals that are being passed on. Often times, they’re for weddings or elopements that you have to be in shape for because it’s happening on top of a […]

As mentioned in a previous blog, some of my most favorite senior sessions are with my former students. This is no exception for these handsome, young men. Meet Juan and Cristhian. The featured studs.  I met Juan in 6th grade- the only grade where I was taller than him. He was a sweet, shy boy […]

My former students’ senior photos are some of my most favorite seniors to photograph. I’m sad that my 2019 senior season is wrapping up! I met Mook about a year ago while working in the high school. She came to the United States from Thailand, and we were lucky enough to have her as a […]

I live in Thornton, so Family Photos in Thornton are at the top of the list for my favorite locations! It’s getting to be crowded, yes, but there still are several different areas that make for some wonderful spots for your next session.  I went to high school with Julie so we’ve stayed in touch […]

Denver senior photos don’t have to happen at the most popular parks in Colorado.  Your session is unique to you, so good thing Colorado has a wide variety of location options.  So Many Denver Neighborhoods to Choose From! Matt opted for an urban feel to his photos which fit him perfectly. Denver senior photos are […]

Sari’s senior photo session in Boulder, Colorado was one for the books. I know I never looked as gorgeous as she does when I was in high school. Girls nowadays are so fortunate to have makeup tutorials and are never left guessing if their makeup is being applied correctly. The good thing about Sari is […]
