Family Photography Arvada: Jessica, Alan, Avery, and Shay

Family Photography Arvada: Right across the street from my house is a fabulous open space called Standley Lake Park.  It consists of trails that wind around the south side of the lake, big open fields, little creeks and rivers, big trees, fab views of the Boulder flatirons and a view all the way to longs peak in the distance.  This has been a go-to outdoor location for all kinds of different portrait shoots.  From engagements to seniors to families, I have taken advantage of living in such close proximity to a ideal outdoor location.

Jessica and Alan are another couple that found me several years ago.  I photographed their awesome wedding at Red Rocks Chapel and then their 80’s themed reception downtown.  I hadn’t seen them since the last time I took photos of Avery when he was about 6 months old.  Time just keeps flying by at the speed of light.

Avery and Shay were the epitome of best friends as we started the shoot- holding hands and hugging and the whole nine.  It was so stinking cute, I was dying!  We were able to get amazing shots of this gorgeous family right out of the gate and then spent an hour walking around the beautiful park choosing different backgrounds to play with.  I love these images and I love that my clients come back to me years later.  Thank you Jessica!  I hope to see you all again soon.

Maternity Photography Denver: Natasha, round two x 2

Maternity Photography Denver:  I am so excited  for my beautiful friends, Natasha and Matt Harris who are about to welcome twin boys into this world sometime next month!  Natasha and I have been thick as thieves ever since she hired me as their wedding photographer in 2009.  After that, I was invited back to document Reagan’s first year, and now we are getting ready to embark on my first TWIN babies first year ever.  I love firsts! And I love it even more that I get to do something this special with a family that means so much to me.  I think Natasha and I may have been separated at birth…

I look forward to meeting these two little men and watching how Reagan takes to her new role as big sis.  I know she is excited about it- even though she still insists that she is having sisters, not brothers.  😉  I don’t really know why, but I’ve always been sort of obsessed with twins.  When I was little I wished I had a twin.  I watched “The Parent Trap” over and over, and ever since I started my portrait business, I’ve been anxiously awaiting the first twin clients to come my way.  Little did I know that they were going to be so special.

Love you Natasha!  Thank you for being such an amazing friend!  I can’t wait to create more beautiful art for your walls this year, next, and all the ones after that too.  XOXO

Denver Family Photographer: The Landsbachs 2014

Denver Family Photographer:  My photographic journey with the Landsbach’s goes all the way back to 2005 when Sarah and Grant hired me as their wedding photographer.  Since then they have added David, Ana, and Mary to their clan and I have seen them nearly every year after.  This year we went to Standley Lake on a beautiful Indian summer afternoon.  It’s always so fun to see them and seriously, these kids are just DARLING!  Obviously all three of them have inherited their parents good looks! And, even better than that, they are all reaching an age that makes family photos a little less difficult and a little more fun!  :-)  By next year, it’s going to be like taking candy from a baby.  I just know it.

Thank you Sarah and Grant for your continued loyalty!  I love seeing you all and am so happy that I get to be the one to help you remember all of the important milestones in your lives as a family. 


Denver Baby Photography: Piper, 3 months

Denver Baby Photography:  Yay, it’s the Wickliff family again! Baby Piper is absolutely adorable and she is breezing through her baby’s first year photo shoots like a little star.  For our second round of baby photos, it was important that we get a family photo that could be used for the Christmas cards (it’s that time of year again).  When I arrived at the Wickliff’s, Connor greeted me at the door with a great big “Hi Fwan-ces!”  This was a big moment for me!  Obviously, I’ve been taking photos of Connor since birth, but he’s never actually said my name until now…  and for the next hour it was Fwances this and Fwances that.  I loved it.

I’m not sure little P was quite as amused as I was.  But she was happy to just hang out and watch Connor spin and chew on her little bow.  We got some sweet little smiles though and some darling shots of her with each member of her family. And, it’s basically the same story I’ve been telling recently with all of the families I am going through baby’s first year, round two with.  Big brother (or sister) is at a fabulously fun, and show stealing age. :-)

And, that being the case, my baby’s first year collection has begun to morph into a family’s first year collection.  Which is fine by me!  It just makes for a slightly more chaotic photo shoot.  But it’s still nothing compared to the chaos that I have been known to deal with as a wedding photographer.  And besides that, what’s a little chaos between friends anyway?  I look forward to EVERY time I get to spend time with this beautiful family I am proud to call my friends.  Merry Christmas Katie, John, Connor, Piper and Scout!  Love you guys! XOXO
