Sunset Family Photos | Cranmer Park Hilltop Neighborhood in Denver

I
t's that time of year when things get busy and families start booking their annual photo sessions for the Christmas card. I love when longtime couples make sure to get updated photos of themselves too. I met up with Tanya and Glenn just a couple of weeks ago and we went to Cranmer Park in the Hilltop Neighborhood where Tonya has lived for quite some time. I just love how their sweet love shines though in their photos together. There were plenty of beautiful gardens to use and of course the famous Sundial as well. I heard that it's going to be torn down and rebuilt so I'm happy we were able to get some photos of them with the original. My favorites are definitely of the two of them in front of that gorgeous sunset sky.

Denver Headshot Photographer | Cherry Creek Colorado Headshots

I
met up with Michelle the other day because she wanted to get new headshots created. She is launching a fantastic new blog all about healthy living and needed some updated pictures to go along with it. She's a cancer survivor and all around wonderful lady. She lives with her two adorable dogs and we made sure to include them in a few of the photos too. She lives in the Cherry Creek area so we met up there and just walked around the neighborhood and found a bunch of fantastic areas to use all within about a 1 block radius. She's incredibly photogenic and these are just a tiny handful of the beautiful photos we created for her. Enjoy!

Bohemian Peacock Wedding | Denver Botanic Gardens Woodland Mosaic Solarium

W
hen I first met Natasha & Cash at the Gypsy House Cafe I was struck by how well they seemed to fit together. Some couples just have that feel to them where they just melt into each other when they are close. But it wasn't just a physical sense that they belonged together. I think they would tell you that they are both a little offbeat and they totally accept each other for who they are. It's really cool to see that kind of loving approval between two people. And now they've officially melded their two families together.  
 
They got married on a gorgeous sunny day at the Denver Botanic Gardens. In the two days before their wedding Denver had a weird cold snap and by Saturday it seemed like the entire city had decided they better check out Chihuly at the gardens while the sun was shining. Natasha & Cash visit the gardens often and we had made a plan to walk around the gardens and Cheesman park for some photos before the ceremony started. I wish I could have that much time to create beautiful photos for my clients on every wedding day. They rented the beautiful green solarium in the Woodland Mosaic Garden for their intimate ceremony and the always fantastic Reverend Kim Tavendale presided over the nuptials. It was a short and sweet ceremony and after we finished the formal photos with the family we all headed over to Stella's restaurant on Colfax Avenue. It was really a lovely and laid back affair and Natasha & Cash were able to enjoy cocktail hour with all of their guests since we had finished their photos earlier. The beautiful multicolored glass decor at Stella's helped add to their peacock jewel-toned bohemian theme too. It was one of the most romantic and magical weddings that I've had the pleasure of photographing in my career!

Colorado Family Photographer | Private Home Photos in Parker

I
spend a lot of time thinking about and researching photography locations for my line of work. Sometimes when I'm driving around and I notice a cool spot I'll even make a little note of it on my cell phone. But sometimes the best place to photograph your family is where you spend most of your time together, at home. Afterall, what better place is there to make you feel comfortable and relaxed? That is exactly what we did for the family on the blog today. For mother's day, Kelli bought her mom a gift certificate to get their family photos updated. They decided it would be nice to photograph at their house in Parker, Colorado. Kelli's mom, Donna did a lovely job on their gardens and we were even able to incorporate dad's cool tractor into a couple of the photos. Here's a little peek at what we came up with.
A mother and father cuddle together in the wildflower garden near their back patio for their family pictures at their home in rural Parker, Colorado.
