Denver Maternity Photographer | Lair O' the Bear Morrison, Colorado

helsea & Dylan have some big life changes coming up on the horizon. Chelsea is pregnant with their first child and they are also in the middle of picking up and moving their family back to Louisiana where they are from. They're sad to be moving from Colorado but it's worth it to be closer to family when their little baby boy arrives. Before they made the big move they thought it would be nice to capture Chelsea's maternity photos in the beautiful outdoors space of Colorado. Chelsea is actually the one who picked out the location. I've always heard that Lair O' the Bear park is really pretty but I've never been up there until I met with them for the photos. It's a really easy drive up Bear Creek Canyon and I love the waters of Bear Creek being right there in the park. And for being in the heart of winter there was a surprising amount of color to use in the photos.

Denver Family Photographer | Winter at Cherry Creek State Park

I
meant to share this adorable family on the blog awhile ago but this new year has kept me busier than usual. Katrina contacted me back in December to plan a photo shoot for her family. Since they would all be together they wanted to get some family photos taken with their granddad over the holidays. So right around Christmas we made the plan to meet at his place over near Cherry Creek State Park on the Southeast side of Denver. To make it easier for him we started off closer to his house and then I convinced the rest of the family to finish up farther inside the park where we could get some of the pretty Colorado winter snow and sagebrush in their photos. I just love how the golden light looked that day. It certainly helped keep all of us warmer even with the colder temperatures. Here are just some of the images we created that day.

Downtown Denver Engagement Photos | Larimer Square & Union Station

I
really love living in Denver because we'll be having a typical snowy cold winter but then the sun will pop out and melt a week's worth of snow in one afternoon. That's just the kind of day we were having when I met up with Noe and Chelsea for their engagement photos this week. We started off at the University Club where they are getting married in March. After capturing a lovely photo with the state capital in the background we made our way through downtown Denver (totally used the free 16th Street Mall ride!) and ended up on the other side where Union Station and Larimer Square are located. I really love to time it so that we hit Larimer Square and all of it's beautiful string lights when sunset hits. If you get there in time you can get a beautiful blue sky in the photos. We not only lucked out with incredibly warm weather for January, but we were also blessed with an incredible pink and purple sunset too. So the colorful sky paired with those lovely lights make such a gorgeous and unique backdrop. It's one of my favorite places to photograph in downtown Denver.

Denver Family Photographer | Boettcher Conservatory Denver Botanic Gardens

D
ang, the weather sure has been chilly lately. I don't want to complain, but today I spent about 15 minutes trying to get the thick layer of ice off of my windshield. (It was totally so I could go buy coffee which I was dumb enough to let myself run out of and desperately felt I needed to start the day. I am fully aware that this is what people refer to as "first world problems" so I'll shut up about that now.)  
 
Being an on-location photographer in Colorado is usually easy since we generally have great weather and gorgeous locations. But every so often in the dead of winter photographing outside is just not an option. In situations like that I really love to use the indoor glass Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory at Denver Botanic Gardens. This is where I met up with Scott & Tiff's extended family right after Christmas. They wanted to get updated family photos created with the matriarch of their family. And the conservatory is a beautiful place to be, especially in the winter time. It's full of huge luscious green plants not native to Colorado and they provide such a nice bright green background for pictures. I think we created some beautiful family portraits for them and you would never even know it was during winter.
