{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!

Good thing Ramin is a runner, because I think he does a lot of it with Isaiah!

{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!

{Westminster/Broomfield, Colorado Baby Photographer} Evan turns 1!

Evan is what I like to call a little miracle baby, born two months early at just under 4 pounds!  Now he’s gone from crawling to walking in no time and all, so when his first Birthday came around & my neighbor Becky asked me to take a few shots of Evan I was happy to oblige!  We also joke around that he is Chloe’s boyfriend too ;)   On their first date, supervised of course, he gave her a foot rub & was also holding her hand!  Now onto some images~

{Boulder,Colorado Family Photographer}

A few weeks ago I met up with Keith & Ria to photograph their family lifestyle session in Boulder.  I absolutely love fall, as it’s my favorite season and it’s also one of my favorite times to photograph too.   After rounding up these two cowboys we hiked up the mountain to capture some beautiful family images!  Check em out!

{Broomfield Baby Photographer} Chloe turns 8 months…

I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted images of my daughter, so yesterday we went out to play in the leaves & take a few pictures.  She can finally sit up on her own with out falling, so it was the perfect time to capture a couple.  She’s stolen my heart and she won’t give it back.  Her first tooth just broke through, so over the weekend she was a little grumpy.  None the less, I took her swimming in her first big pool!  She wasn’t very amused, but preferred watching all the other children play.   So here is just a sample….

She is a walking or sitting in this case, poster child for all things home made.  My good friend Ally made her hair band, thanks Ally!  My mom made her designer bird onsie :)

{Westminster Wedding Photographer} Bridal Portrait Session @ Castle in Westminster, CO…

To say that I LOVE my job is such an understatement, especially when I have clients like Anh & Kevin who seriously know how to rock it when it comes to style & having fun!  They are getting married next month, but wanted to do a pre-wedding portrait session, so that they could have a few fun & chic prints to display at their ceremony.  We had an incredible time exploring the grounds of what used to be Westminster College.  It is such a quaint and charming location and served as the perfect back drop for our bridal portrait session!  Anh,  I can’t believe I get to photograph you not once, but twice in your wedding gown!  We’re going to have so much fun next month!  Now onto one of my favorite couple sessions of the YEAR!

{Boulder Wedding Photography} Trash the Dress

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of photographing Tiffany’s Trash the Dress session at a Victorian Horse Farm near Longmont.  I wish I could start every Sunday morning photographing a fabulous bride having fun in her gown.  She wanted to be photographed at a ranch because her husband, Mark is really into riding horses and is a true cowboy himself!  They’ll be celebrating their one year anniversary next month!  Congrats to both of you and have a great time in Vail!

{Gatehouse Wedding Photographer} Wedding at the Gatehouse, Lafayette CO….

Lance and Brittney met while serving on a mission in Texas and were married in Utah on August 15th, but luckily for me and all of Brittney’s friends and family, they had an additional reception at the Gatehouse in Lafayette, which was incredible!  Brittney’s nickname is Birdy, so the entire theme for the decor was birds!  I loved the attention to detail and all the personal touches that made their reception one to remember!  Click here for the slideshow!  Now onto some images from the event…
