Ihaven't seen my old skating buddy Annia Late-her in a long time. It was such a treat to photographer her and her son Codie again. And this time she brought along her sister Chris and their family too. Such a great idea and just in time for Christmas presents. I just recently moved over to the west side of Denver. I've lived in Denver for 14 years now and feel like I've lived in almost all of the neighborhoods at this point. But I have mostly kept to the east side of I-25 so it's been fun reacquainting myself with this area. The other day I went for a short jog around Sloans Lake and realized that it would actually be a pretty awesome photoshoot location since it has beautiful views of the mountains from one side and a pretty good view of downtown from the other. So I suggested it to Annia for her family photos and was pretty happy that she was on board with it for their photo location. The session was pretty short and sweet since we were photographing at mid-day this time and using our own light instead of working with just the late-day natural light. My favorite part was getting to see Codie again and getting a big ol' hug from him. He is the sweetest!
There are so many cool places in the Colorado mountains to go visit that it sometimes feels like I've only scratched the surface. I photographed a wedding last fall in Granby and couldn't believe that I hadn't been up that way since I was a kid. And the whole Winter Park/Tabernash/Granby area is really not too bad of a drive from Denver. It's such a lovely winter wonderland up there. I was excited that Helen wanted me to come out to her house in Tabernash to photograph her family. Us photographers sometimes get so wrapped up in work that we forget that we need someone to capture our families too. She just had her first child and she wanted to get some updated photos of her family since they hadn't had any since they got married. (Umm...guilty of that right here!) We kept having to push back the session because of weather but it finally cooperated enough to pull off a short session. I loved that all we had to do was walk outside their front door and found ourselves surrounded by beautiful blue snowcapped mountain ranges. How lucky are they? Be sure to check out Helen's photography website in the link below:)
Ilove photographing all kinds of different weddings and I was lucky that I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet intimate wedding the day before Thanksgiving this year. Rachel & Matthew held their ceremony on the back deck with a beautiful mountain view at Mount Vernon Country Club. They were able to have their sweet doggie, Hannah join them which I thought was really nice. Matthew's family came all the way out from Chicago and Rachel's drove down from Granby to celebrate with them. We were able to get some pictures with amazing views of the foothills despite the somewhat chilly weather. It was actually pretty nice considering how late in November it was.
Rachel & Matthew,
I hope you have the most magical holiday season as newlyweds:) Congratulations!
My favorite. Look at that view!
Apretty cold winter storm blew in last week and really set the scene for getting some holiday family photos created here in Colorado. I went out to Niwot which is the town where I went to high school and met this sweet family who were having a family get together. While their kids were visiting, they wanted to get some updated family photos done in front of their beautiful gold colored Christmas Tree and fireplace. I loved their classic, elegant look with everyone dressed up in black and white. They are such a good looking family and they have the sweetest, shy cute kids too. I loved that they each took a turn at the end getting a nice picture with their grandpa. When they are all grown up they are going to love that they have those photos with him to look back on.
