Hello all!

You may remember last year, I did a model call for preschool aged children-to put together materials for local preschools.  I wanted to offer my brand of children’s photography to the otherwise boring, uninspired world of school photography.  Many of you had your children model for me, and then graciously took my materials to your schools.  What I found was that many schools are resistant to changing from the “old” system.  If it’s not broken, why fix it–and I get that.  But one school was open to something new and different-and last fall, I photographed Montview Preschool and Kindergarten.  The parents LOVED these authentic, beautiful pictures of their children.  And really, look at these kiddos!  How can you not be in love.

Parents also enjoyed the ease and convenience of my online ordering system, and the immediate availability of digital files.  Print packages were offered as well.   No preordering-everyone was able to view their child’s photos before deciding.  For this school, we did outdoor photos in their courtyard.  But depending on the school and the weather-a solid, classic background is offered as well.

I would love to add one more school for the 2017-2018 school year!  If you think your school is ready to think outside the school photography “box”–and would be open to talking to me, please let me know!

You guys, I am on point!  I have blogged once a week for the last three weeks!  I feel like I can conquer the world.  Mondays are my day-let’s hope I can keep this up.  I have sooo many sessions to share in the cue…including this one from fall 2015.   This Mom contacted me wanting to document the special relationship between her and her daughter.  We bonded over the subject of divorce, as she was working through one herself–and I can totally understand that place. She wanted to document the two of them, and their life in its new form.  The love they share is obvious-check it:

And her daughter-so beautiful, right?!?!  I hope I will be photographing her senior pictures one day soon!  Stay tuned for their fall 2016 session….

For 2017, I am going to start highlighting some of the lovely families who are part of my A Year in the Life plan.  This plan is totally customizable–you only need a minimum of 2 sessions to create a plan.  Pick only the sessions you want!  All first year plan members receive a gorgeous 10×10 hardcover album at the end, telling the story of baby’s first year.

This family celebrated the birth of their third child by choosing newborn, 6 month and 1 year sessions.

Newborn–October 2015

All of my newborn sessions are done in-home.  My goal is to capture LIFE at this time.  If you are looking for a posed, sleeping newborn-I am probably not the photographer for you!  If you desire authentic family interactions-you’ve come to the right place.

and yes-I happily photograph siblings while baby is being fed!  

Stay tuned for the next post in this series–Brooke’s summertime 6 month session!

Every year in September, I am honored to be a photographer at the Children’s Museum of Denver’s Say Cheese event!  Since I was there last year, they have made some awesome improvements, both indoors and out!  The expanded outdoor space gave us so many new fun spots for shooting.  Here’s a sampling of the three fabulous families I worked with that day!

Hello all and Happy New Year!

This is the time of year for photographers when we want to organize alllllll the things.  And if you saw my office come December, you would understand why.  Time to evaluate the year, what worked, what didn’t, just an overall refresh.  I love the potential January holds!

One thing I do that totally works is photograph my daughters’ birthday parties.  Not the actual “party” per se-but rather a birthday photo shoot.  I love it, they love it-it’s truly a win-win. This is my younger daughter’s 13th birthday, last year.  This year, we will be doing something similar to what we did for my older daughter’s 14th-you can check that HERE.

If you are ever scratching your head, wondering what the heck to do for your teenage daughter’s birthday, look no further.  All they really want is a photo shoot, and a sleepover.  Give me a shout and let’s chat about the details!
