Newborn and Baby Photography

Newborn photography is a favorite here at Frances Photography where we love to capture cute images of baby photography from Denver to Boulder and around the globe.

Baby Photography Denver: Sterling is 3 months!

Baby Photography Denver: I often talk about my Baby’s First Year collection being one of my favorite things to book and to photograph with my clients.  This is mostly because I get to follow my favorite little munchkins every few months through the first year of their life from newborn to one.  Lately, I am booking a lot of round 2′s with many of the same families that I started with for their first born.  The Col(e)man family is BEYOND extra special in my life in more ways than I can count,  and the fact that they have added another beautiful boy to this world means that not only do I get to capture Sterling through his first year, but that I also get to follow Soren through his second year every few months!  I didn’t necessarily premeditate this collection being something that would mean a lot of repeat business, however, it has meant exactly that!  I mean, how fair is it to give the first born 6 photo shoots and a book of their first year, and NOT do the same for the second child?  Ha!

As it stands at this very moment in time, I am in the midst of baby’s first year round two for not only the Colmans, but for 3 other families, with 3 more (at least) coming up right behind them.  And everyone that goes through round two with me gets added value because not only do I photograph the new baby, but the older child at the same time too.  Talk about bang for your buck.  ;-)  So for anyone that follows my blog regularly, you are going to get to see a lot more cute babies along with their old siblings that have been featured over and over again the past few years.

Thank you to the Colman’s for your continued love, loyalty, friendship, and support.  I am so happy to vicariously experience parenthood through your gorgeous family.  I couldn’t ask for better best friends OR for more beautiful little boys to satiate my baby fever with.  Love you all to the moon and back, to infinity.  Smooches.  XOXO

Baby Photography Denver: Ava’s First Year

Baby Photography Denver:  Little Mouse-y. Oh how I love going back in time by looking over the progression of a Baby’s First  Year Collection!  I love seeing how quickly babies change from tiny, helpless newborns into walking, talking little people.  Christine and Mike found me back in 2010 when they got engaged and were looking for their Denver wedding photographer.  As with many of the couples I work with, there was an immediate connection between us and a friendship began at their engagement session that has lasted to this day.  Of course I was ecstatic when I found out they were expecting their first child and was thrilled when they asked me to document yet another milestone in their life together.

Ava Valentine Gregorek was born on Dec. 6th, 2012 and is absolutely perfect in every way!  I fell in love with her from GO.  We had such a good time at all of the photo shoots over the course of her first year and I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites from all of the sessions from maternity, to newborn, to 3 months, to 6 months, to 9 months, to one year. The months truly do fly by and I hope that these memories will freeze time for my friends, Christine and Mike, whenever they look at them.  Ava’s smiles have melted my heart since the day I met her and I’m sure that they will continue to do the same for her fabulous parents forever.  Little Mouse, your mama and daddy love you to the moon.  And I will freeze time for the smile of yours ANYTIME.  Tell your momma to call me!  It’s about time I had your pretty little face in front of my lens again.  Kisses and Hugs!

Denver Baby Photography: Sweet Vivi goes Bye-Bye

Denver Baby Photography: This is a happy and a sad post for me all wrapped into one.  I have been capturing the gorgeous Julie and Micheal Marcum from their engagement, to their beautiful wedding, to their maternity photo shoot, and finally to Vivi’s newborn, 3 month, and 6 month baby photo sessions, all over the last several years.  I have known Vivi since only a few days after she was born and I’ve been in love with her from day one, just like I have been with her fabulous mama and daddy.  We had planned to do my Babies First Year Collection together, but as life sometimes does, Julie and Micheal got a curve ball thrown their way when Micheal got a new job out of state.  So, they have moved and Denver has lost one of the most beautiful little families I have had the pleasure of getting to know and capture during some of the most important times in their life.

Vivi is pure joy all packed into a little baby body.  I have been so excited every time we have had a photo shoot on the calendar, so, of course, I was SO sad to lose them.  But, I have no doubt they will be back to visit and I know I will get to see them when they do. :-)  I love following Julie’s Facebook photos of Vivi as she continues to grow and get cuter and cuter day by day.

Thank you to Julie and Micheal for being such wonderful clients and for your loyalty to my business and my art.  I love you and wish you all the best of luck in this new chapter of your lives!  Please call me ANYTIME you come back to Colorado!  Kiss that baby for me!  XOXO

Newborn Photography Denver: Cooper Connolly

Newborn Photography Denver:  Newborn babies never cease to amaze me.  The tiny hands and feet, the itsy-bitsy finger and toenails, the little lips and ears, the skinny little baby bird legs… all miniature versions of what we all, as humans, have in common physically.  Somehow when I look at these things on a new baby, I am left with a sense of wonder and magic.

The idea that we all start as helpless little creatures and grow into independent little children- into anxious teenagers- into mature and functional (usually-ha!) adults, is amazing.  The circle of life is something that intrigues me and is something that I never tire of thinking about.  Capturing a newborn baby is something that just makes me feel good!  It’s not easy to put into words, but it just does.  I love to see the love in the parents eyes for their new child.  I love to see little big brothers & sisters interact with the person who has come into their life and rocked their idea that they are the center of the universe off kilter.  I love the little noises new babies make.  I love watching their sensitive little eyes get all crossed up from trying to focus out at a distance at which they are not yet developed enough to handle.  And I love seeing the joy that a newborn creates in a space where only days before that, didn’t exist.

Chelsea is a fantastically talented graphic designer, the Art Director for Reign Magazine, and also someone I am lucky to call a friend.  I met her darling husband, George, at Betsy (Publisher and Editor-In-Chief of Reign Magazine) and Kevin Marr’s fabulous wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch.  Chelsea and I have gotten to know each other working together for this gorgeous publication over the last couple of years and I think she is amazing!  Not only did she just have a new baby, but she and George also have an adorable 3 year old, Trey, AND she works her butt off doing what she loves.  She gives me hope that one day I will actually be able to “do it all” too.  Love to the Connolly family and thank you so much for letting me capture this precious time and your gorgeous family!
