Last night I had the pleasure of meeting the people behind the Boppy Company. If you've ever had a baby or know someone who has I'm sure you are familiar with them and their awesome line of pillows designed for newborns. If not, be sure to check out their website below. If you know anyone having a baby I'm sure it's on their Christmas wish list:) Literally every single one of my newborn baby clients has owned one of these great pillows and I use them all the time at my sessions. I love that they are a local company and began right here in Golden, Colorado. My friend Shannin works there and she was one of the ladies in charge of planning their holiday party this year. She thought it might be fun to bring in a photobooth and I love that the employees took photos of their casino night winnings:) Here are just a handful of some of the captures from the party.
Haha, I think this one is my favorite:)
Ihad the pleasure of photographing this adorable couple this evening. They have been married for 7 years and recently moved to Denver from Oklahoma. This is their first year being away from their family for the holidays so they thought it might be nice to get some photos taken to share their life here in Denver with their family. We went to City Park and I was happy to see that there were still a few trees in the park holding their leaves. I'm still in denial that winter is approaching and wish that Autumn could last just a little longer. We finished up on the east side of the park so that we could get the pretty view of the Denver skyline with the mountains behind it. And I was glad that we were able to get some decent photos with the sunset despite the heavy cloud coverage.
I LOVE how this one turned out. I have seen these trees full of birds nests near the Denver Zoo at City Park so many times but never bothered to get a shot with them. But when I saw the sky with the pink and purple in it I had to give it a try:)
Have I ever mentioned how much fun it is to photograph in a new place? Saturday afternoon I found myself driving up I-25 to get to Devil's Backbone which is this pretty open space trail area just west of Loveland. I was meeting up with Katelynn & Jake who are getting married next summer. They are hosting their reception in my hometown of Longmont at the DBarn. They wanted some pretty autumn photos and I think this location definitely delivered on that. They also brought their totally lovable and GIGANTIC french mastiff Sully. Seriously, these photos do not do justice to the sheer size of Sully. He's like 100+ pounds of pure energy and love:) While I enjoyed photographing the three of them together, I was really pleased with how natural and romantic Katelynn and Jake were in front of the camera when it was just the two of them. I am still getting to know them but to me they seemed to compliment each other very well. Katelynn is this super fun bubbly gal who makes lots of jokes and Jake is a little more reserved and stoic. One thing that was clear for anyone who sees them is how in love they are:)
Man's best friend:)
One of the best things about my line of work is getting to see families grow and evolve. I photographed Jen and Pascal's wedding a couple of years ago and last winter they welcomed an adorable baby girl into their lives. I feel lucky that I've been along for the ride and they now have a nice collection of photos of their puppy Milo, maternity photos, newborn shots as well as the engagement photos and wedding pictures. Their baby girl has grown so much and she's now sporting a full head of pretty red hair. We met up at the Aspen Glen Golf Club which is such a photogenic golf course community in Carbondale just outside of Aspen. We were able to get some photos with a lovely view of Mount Sopris in the background as well as some with colorful fall foliage.
Jen & Pascal,
Thank you for letting me photograph your adorable family! This one might be my favorite session of ours yet:)
