{Broomfield Photographer} Video of the factory girls living it up in the kitchen!

Each year, my girl Lesli and I get together to bake Christmas cookies, and this year was deemed particularly fun, due to my delirium brought on by a 5 am wake up.  There was much laughter and thanks to her we made about 8 dozen cookies to distribute to my neighbors and friends.  Here is a little sample of our “cookie mockumentary”, enjoy!

{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 Wedding Photographer Trash The Dress} with Jackie…

Last week I had the chance to meet up with the uber sexy, styling and philanthropic Jackie!  She contacted me because, as she stated it, “I’m not the same person I was when I got married.  I went into marriage thinking that it was going to be a fairytale, so I had the big poofy white dress and the long train, but the day after wards I woke up and realized I was wrong.”  Jackie wanted a chance to wear her dress again, but this time, as a new more confident and radiant women.  Honestly, I haven’t seen pictures of Jax on her wedding day, but I think she’s even more gorgeous today!  I think all women should have a chance to do a “Trash the Dress” or “Day After Session,”  well in this case years after, but  sometimes I think it takes having the gift of marriage and years of growing and healing from our past to discover the true women that we are meant to be!  Now onto the photographs!

{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!

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

We took a little time out to get a sweet photo of Margo & her mommy!

We took a minute out to get a sweet image of Margot and her mommy.

Then I held Margo and captured these beautiful maternity images :)

So adorable!

I love the backlight in these images!

Proof that even with 2 kids you can still be sexy

Sweet Margot!

I LOVE this one of Norah!


{Ceilo Wedding Photographer at Castle Pines} Colorado Wedding with Kara & Eric..

A few weekends ago I had the pleasure of second shooting with the talented Jared Wilson of Jared Wilson Photography at Ceilo in Castle Pines, Colorado.  When I’m not shooting my own weddings, I love second shooting for other photographers, as it keeps me fresh and I always learn something new!  This wedding was especially emotional and memorable, as Kara had lost her mom to breast cancer a few years ago.  They did a lovely job of not only celebrating their love for one another during a beautiful outdoor ceremony, but also commemorating Kara’s mom by making a donation to the American Cancer Society for each of their guests.   Now onto some images from the day!

I love this image!

They also did a first look, which allowed us plenty of time for photographs!

Kara and her dad are really close and I love the look she's giving him here.

A toast in rememberance of Kara's mother.

I love crazy-fun bridesmaids..this one was the life of the party!

I hope you have a wonderful time in Ireland on your honeymoon!  Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your day!

{Manor House Wedding Photographer} Brent + Victoria

After a week solid of rain everyday, which is rare for Colorado, the sun broke through and it was the perfect afternoon for Brent and Victoria to tie the knot!  They had a beautiful ceremony in the foothills at the historical Manor House.  The views were gorgeous from every direction and included Denver, as the backdrop for the ceremony.  What was even more gorgeous than the views was Victoria, she was absolutely stunning!   Although Victoria’s family, who is from Columbia was unable to attend, due to their visas being denied, they were definitely there in spirit, and the friends and family in attendance made certain that Victoria felt loved!  Brent and Victoria couldn’t be more perfect for one another, and it was evident in the way they looked at each other through out the day.  Check back soon for their slideshow!

Kimberly of The Butler's Pantry did they incredible flower arrangments.

I love this shot that Wade got right after their first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. Johnson!

I don't think they could have been any happier!

Here is Victoria giving her mother in law a touching!

being announced for the first time as husband and wife...I love weddings!

I'm not usually big on cake shots, but I thought this one was pretty interesting, my flash didn't fire & I got this gem!

Check out Gma & Gdad...they are way into line dancing!  Most adorable Grandad ever, except for mine of course!

A special shout out to The Master Piece Mobile DF for spinning some funky beats!

They did a traditional Columbian dance called the "Cumbia", which was awesome. Victoria even imported the fabric and made these add ons herself!

Brent and Victoria, thanks for allowing us to document your special day in a fun, chic and real style!  I hope you have a wonderful time in Columbia and continue the celebration!

{Denver Engagement Photographer} Brent & Victoria at Wash Park…

Ok, so I’m not good at keeping up with my blog,which is why I’ve had these images simmering in their nice folder for some time now just waiting to make an appearance on my blog!  A few months back I photographed Brent & Victoria’s engagement session at Washington Park.  They have to be two of the sweetest people ever and met while Brent was teaching EOSL classes at church.  You see Victoria is from Columbia and has to be one of the most stunning women I’ve ever seen hail from her country!  So here are a couple images of the two of them.  Incidentally, Washington Park was the location of their very first kiss, so it held an extra special meaning for the two of them!  I love when couples incorporate a special place into there session.

I like this one because it reminds me of the old film days..

These next 4 are all very similar, but I love each of them for different reasons.

especially this one..very timeless!

Then their super fun dog, Floppy joined us!  The name of my first dog, a german shepard was named Floppy too :)

He enjoyed being part of the action!  Brent used to play soccer in school, so we brought out the soccer ball too.

I had a great time with you guys and congrats on your upcoming nuptials!

{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.

{Boulder Baby Photographer} BOBA Baby Backpack Commercial shoot…

Last summer, after taking some time off to have my little Chloe, Robert, of Sleepy Wrap approached me about being on their creative team for their upcoming product BOBA, a baby backpack complete with foot straps and hood.  I couldn’t have been more excited, and now after several shoots and fully adopting all things natural from baby wearing, to cloth diapering, to making my own baby food, and I’m finally getting around to blogging their newest edition of the BOBA, 2G.  I simply adore Robert and his beautiful family, so after the commercial shoot I was able to get a few of their newest edition, Gloria!  I was hoping to get a few of all the family, however Nicoli, their youngest son, had taken a terrible spill and had the war wounds to prove it.  So here are a few from our shoot!  I love their newest color tweet 2G!  You can purchase your own here and all the images on the box are taken by yours truly!  There is even a rumor going around that you can find Chloe and I modeling on a BOBA  box too!

this image is too sweet...Mama wearing one while holding the other!

This is Elizabeth, the inventor of the BOBA with her daughter, Gloria...they are both so beautiful!

She is just adorable!

Congrats Robert & Elizabeth on your newest addtion!
