Igotta admit, I'm pretty excited about the latest engagement photo session I did with Kelly and Kael on Monday afternoon. We met on Friday and I was telling them how much I like to go to downtown Denver for photo shoots when it's winter time because it's easier to find some color to incorporate into the pictures in an urban landscape than a dry dead winter landscape. And luckily they went with my suggestion. Larimer Square is definitely high up on my favorite locations list because those strings lights at dusk with a beautiful blue sky behind them are hard to beat in the beauty department. I arrived early since it's been awhile since I photographed in this area so I could scope it out and see what's new, what's still looking great etc... and decided to walk down by the Cherry Creek path to see if there was anything interesting going on down there. It was actually a last minute decision and I didn't have a lot of time before I was supposed to meet up with Kelly and Kael but I was shocked to find one of the prettiest pieces of public artwork I think I've ever seen. My good friend who teaches at Auraria let me know that this particular mural is called "City of the Sun" by Gemma Danielle. (Perfect name for Denver, btw) Looking at it I was reminded of how much I used to love playing with my spirograph when I was a kid! I jogged back over to our meeting point and when I saw them walking over literally wearing the exact perfect clothing to go with the wall I couldn't believe how lucky I am. Kelly and Kael brought their super cute doggies with them and we had a lot of fun wrangling them for pictures. (Shout out to their giraffe squeaky toy and to Kael's mom and husband for helping us create these pictures!)
Kelly and Kael,
Thanks for being weirdly psychic with your outfit choices and for the good time at your session! I'll be in touch with your full gallery soon!
Gemma Danielle Be sure to check out the art on her website!
My favorite:) Kelly has a wonderful laugh!
The family featured today came out from the warm desert land of Arizona to enjoy a little cold mountain winter weather in one of Colorado's best towns to visit with your family, Breckenridge. They spent the week enjoying the snow and hitting the runs but also wanted to squeeze in a family photo together. I was hoping we'd get one of those beautiful bluebird days that Colorado is so famous for, but the weather was not cooperating this time. We were able to make it work at the cute little historic Edwin Carter House Museum. Normally you can see the beautiful mountain views from there but the snowfall obscured it this time. I do love the nice winter wonderland feel we got in the front of the cabin and as you can see, the snow was really coming down hard. I'm hoping these will remind them of the fun they had together as a family in Colorado.
Ihad planned to photograph this family earlier this week but a chilly snowstorm came in and the mountain views were pretty non-existent. Luckily we both had the next day open and it was actually bright and sunny and even somewhat warm for this time of year. It was your typical beautiful winter day in Colorado with the sun shining on fresh snow fall. The path at Sapphire Point was a little icy so we had to be really careful but I love how different it looks there with pretty white snow everywhere. Here's a small handful of the beautiful mountain family photos we were able to create. What a treat to start off the first post of the year with such a photogenic family!

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!
