{Boulder Family Photographer} Four Generations of beauties…

She’s finally HERE!!  We are so thrilled to introduce to you our newest addition to our family, Audrey Grace!  I am very thankful for a healthy little RED HEADED baby girl.  Being a red head myself, I’ve always wanted a little red headed daughter, and it looks like I got my wish :) YEAHHH!  See below.

The transition to our family of four is going smoothly and Chloe is such a great big sister.  My mom was out for 10 days, which was a great blessing along with the amazing support from our friends who have been making us some delicious meals!  Thank you!

You can really see her red hair here! I had a great labor and delivery, despite having mild preclampsia and being induced 2 weeks early. I was happy that she was exactly a pound more than Chloe was and has also been a great nurser too.

We tried to get a 4 generation picture when Chloe came back from staying with my family for a week, but she was pretty exhausted, so this is what we ended up with.

My mother and Grandmother are stunning beauties, so are my little girls, despite the crying. This image one might have been the best one. We wanted to honor my Grandmother, see L, so we used her name as Audrey's middle name, Grace, which I love!

Here is the one when Chloe was a newborn! I can't believe she was ever that small.

{Denver Wedding Photographer} Wedding at the Oxford Hotel, Denver, CO…

I don’t always get around to blogging weddings that I second shoot for, but this one is way past due, and a must see.  Not only was the wedding spectacular,but the couple was super fun and dashing too!  If you’re looking for a wedding photographer and I’m not available for your date, then I would highly recommend Jared Wilson, who I’ve had the honor of photographing along side for a number of top notch weddings, Ryan and Jessica’s being one such event, with florals and design by rockstar, Stacy Pisani, Denver wedding planner with Alexan Events. If you’re a bride, who loves the color purple, then you’re going to dig this wedding!  The couple was so laid back and a breeze to photograph, while the details and floral arrangements were easily some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen!  Now onto some of the details from the day.

Ryan and the groomsmen getting ready..gotta love chuck taylors!

Love this image of the guys!

Most adorable flower girl....aren't they all?

Here are the bridesmaids on their way to get formal photographs taken.  Charlie, on your left, did an amazing job on the ladies makeup and you may remember from Kevin & Kristen’s wedding.

Isn't Jessica stunning?

Love the slow shutter in this one...such a happy accident!

This one, taken inside Union Station is so much fun! Props to Jared for setting it up.

Some details from the reception!

Congrats Jessica & Ryan on a beautiful day complete with rainbow!

{Lafayette Newborn Photographer} Meet the beloved brother…

Christmas night I got a call that Ally was going into labor! Both Ally & Dave didn’t know that their third, and most likely last child, would come into this world as a boy, but they were certainly ecstatic that their prediction was correct!  Ally, although admits to loving her two girls, she states “There is something different about having a boy.  I just want to hold him all the time!”  Understandably so after you see these images of the sweet little guy!  Congrats Dave & Ally!  If you’re interested in having a newborn session you can call me at 720.837.4183 or drop me a line at shannon@centeravenueimaging.com  I would love to document your little one!

{Lafayette Family & Baby Photographer} Meet the Wiltons!

The Wilton Family is one of the sweetest families you’ll ever meet and their two girls, ages 1 and 2 are too adorable for words.  I met up with them at their home in Lafayette, which is an old church turned into a house.  It’s definitely one of the coolest houses ever, but we decided to take the session outdoors, as the weather & scenery was just perfect!  You might remember Ally from her maternity session here, with her first daughter, Norah, and now she is pregnant with baby #3 due in January!  It’s amazing to watch and document as their family grows.  Now onto their session!

I love the way Dave is looking at Ally here, so adoring!

{Broomfield Family Photographer} Meet the Schleicher Family!

Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting up with David and Meggin to photograph their beautiful family at Red Rocks Amphitheater, also where David graduated from high school.  The place was brimming with families, hikers, bikers and of course us!  David is opening his own Pediatric Dental office in Broomfield at the Bradburn Village so getting family photographs to advertise with was a must.  We had so much fun exploring the park looking for the perfect place for a family session.  Now onto some of my favorites from the day! To view all their images click here.

Meet Samuel...also one of my favorite boy names of all times!

David and Meggin, I really enjoyed spending the day with your family.  You two are such great parents and I wish you all the success as you open your new business!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of documenting your family…I feel truly blessed by knowing you!

{Boulder Baby Photographer} Chloe turns 1!

This past year has been the most amazing and challenging experience of my life and to say that I’m ecstatic to be a mom is an understatement!  With that said, my daughter, Chloe, whom I share a birthday with, turned one this past Saturday!  She is so sweet and melts my heart everyday.  She loves putting things over her head and trying to dress herself, right now she has her daddy’s headphones on, although not completely on right.   She loves to go shopping with mommy, go on hikes with Uncle Ryan, cuddle with her daddy and best of all she’s a great sleeper!

We had a low key birthday party for her at our home, complete with a yummy cake made by her Great Grandmother Grace.  I haven’t done her official one year photographs, so this slideshow is a combination of photos from my DSLR, point and shoot and video from I phone.   Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate! Enjoy and feel free to leave comments!  Chloe loves blog loving!

{Boulder Children Photographer} Meet Isaiah!

Isaiah has a spark in his eyes, similar to one his Dad, Ramin holds, but all bundled up in a 2 year old, whom is as wild and crazy, as his infamous blond curls.  I met up with the Razavi’s on Saturday & we headed up to Left Hand Canyon in Boulder, however when we arrived we found the temperatures to be a bit brisk, so all be it a short session, we still had a lot of fun!

Meet Isaiah! I LOVE curly hair, but I could be a little biased, as I have some crazy curls myself!

{Layfayette Family Photographer} Meet the Carters!

The Carter Family could easily grace the pages of the Anthropologies Christmas Catalog.  Each of them have a signature look that is no doubt timeless and beautiful.  There is no one word to sum up this family, as they are as much gracious, loving and caring as they are beautiful.  Meet them only one time & you’ll feel as though you’ve been part of their family for years!  Now onto our lifestyle session from Saturday!

{Boulder Family Photographer} Meet the Bonetti Family!

It is always so nice when you click with your subjects and the Bonettie Family was no exception.  A few weeks ago I met up with them to photograph their family, needless to say they are all so beautiful and were great to work with.  They are also very thoughtful, as I received 2 bottles of their organic wine this past Saturday and I can’t wait to open them up at a Holiday party I’m hosting for my family this Friday night!  Here were some of my favorites from the day!
