{Lafayette Family Photographer} Meet the Pettigrew Family!

I’m happy to report that I’ve found a much faster way to blog my images than ever before.  Hopefully with this, I’ll bring to you more of my sessions.  You might have thought that I’ve climbed into a dark hole and been hibernating for the fall & winter, but it’s been the opposite!  I’ve been so blessed to photograph almost 30 families, this fall alone making it our busiest Lifestyle session season to date.  I can’t take all the credit though, as the ridiculous creative and talented, Jill Carter of Common Couture, and I have teamed up this past year to bring my clients an extra added value!   She’s brought not only amazing wardrobe styling, hair and makeup, but complete set styling too!  She has such an incredible grace upon her to help bring out the beauty in others, and with my desire to capture that beauty in people…well we’ve made quite a team.  Here is just one of the sessions below.  However, this family portrays a special beauty with out any help from us!

The Pettigrews have been waiting over 3 years for this little Christmas miracle, Lily Grace!  They were finally granted their visas this past fall to fly to Korea and meet their daughter for the first time.  This beautiful story of adoption makes my heart overjoyed!  A special thanks to everyone who purchased prints during the month of October, as 10% of the proceeds went to helping “Bring Lily Home.”  Carol was made to be a mother, and just lights up with Lily  or LG, as they like to call her, is in her arms.  Dennis has never smiled, as much as he does now.  This family of 3 is finally complete, and the best present they could ever have asked for, eachother!  Congrats Pettigrew Family!  Thanks for allowing me to capture your family.  A special thanks to Jill of Common Couture for complete styling of wardrobe, hair, makeup and set!  Contact me today to set up your family session at shannon@centeravenueimaging.com or 720.837.4183  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

{Boulder Baby Photographer} Shelsta Family Lifestyle Session…

I don’t think I’ve ever met a happier baby than Selah!  She didn’t stop smiling the whole session, well except when we had her clothes off and the sun went behind the clouds.  Earlier in the day it had been snowing, and we even had a few flakes join us.  The weather is so erratic in Colorado, but I’ll take it any day over the “grey” that covers the East coast for months at a time.  It’s no wonder that Selah never stops smiling, as her parents Garret and Aubrey are two of the friendliest people you’ll meet.   Garret is an amazing musician, and will be launching his site soon.   It was so awesome when he broke out his guitar and harmonica and started to jam, plus Selah loves to dance.  This girl can shake it!  You can listen to his music HERE along with viewing the slide show from their session.  Now onto their images!  Thanks Shelsta family for allowing me to photograph your beautiful family!

Such a beautiful family!

It's hard to tell Aubrey's the mommy here ;) They look so much alike!

Love this one!

Love her chubber thighs!!

{Broomfield Newborn Photographer} Meet Cashton!

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Chad and Christy’s newborn boy!  It is amazing the difference from just 10 days old to almost 3 weeks makes, as this little guy was alert, strong and not the least bit sleepy.  We were still able to get some great shots, and after Cashton having to go to children’s hospital the week before due to troubles breathing, we’re all just glad that he is happy and healthy!  I couldn’t believe he was rolling from his front to his back already.  Watch out Pennick family, he’s going to be a tough one!  Check out his slideshow here! Now onto some images from their session.

We we're able to get one shot of Cash sleeping on one of Chad's signed Nuggets shirts. Chad used to work for the Nuggets, so we had get a shot of baby Cash representing!

Sweet mamma and baby boy!

I love when couples incoroporate their own creativity into the shoot! Chad got out 100 $1 bills for Cashton's session. AWESOME!

I LOVE this image! Daddy's so big and strong holding this tiny little creation, his son.

LIttle baby feet!

What a handsome boy...looks just like his daddy!

Gotta love boys...this was Christy's expression right after Cash went both # 1 & 2 on her. What a great sport!

Love Cash's face here! Chad and Christy it was a pleasure working with you and Congrats on your new boy!

{Boulder Baby Photographer} Meet Gideon!

There is something so special about living among people in a community, where you not only call them friends, but family.  I’m certain we are one of many that consider this of the Wilton family, but never the less they are so dear to us.  Ally was there at my daughter’s birth, we often celebrate Christmas with a wonderful homemade Christmas eve dinner, our girls love playing together, and Dave could not be a better friend to my husband, Wade.  With that said, we got a call late on Christmas day with the news that Ally was in labor!  Being a transplant, like ourselves, to CO, Ally’s parents live a 2 day drive away, so with the help of many loving friends, we covered shifts watching her girls until her parents arrived tonight.   I was lucky enough to not only spend time with the girls, but also take them to meet there new baby brother Gideon!  They didn’t find out until Gideon arrived that he was a boy, but Dave couldn’t be more thrilled!  Also, his pride and love for Ally for enduring her third “all natural” delivery in just three years could not have been sweeter, and more sincere!    Below is just one of my fave’s from the day.  Congrats Wilton family!

{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!

{Boulder Portrait Photographer} Baby Wearing and Bolder Boulder 10k…

This past Memorial Day I participated in the very first baby wearing Bolder Boulder sponsored by one of my commercial clients BOBA.  Not only did I wear Chloe for over 6 miles, but I also photographed during the events activities.  Although I did walk this event, it reminded me of how much I like to compete, so afterwards I started running more and now I’m training for a half marathon in September!  It will be first one and I’m very excited about it.  Here is a shot of me wearing my daughter compliments of my hubby, Wade.

{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!

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 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!

{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!
