Newborn Photography Denver: Elliott Weaver

Newborn Photography Denver:  I first met the Weaver family when their first son, Charlie, was a newborn.  We took some beautiful photos of him at about three weeks old, and 22 months later, Molly and John called me back for newborn photos of their second little boy, Elliott.  It’s just amazing how fast time flies by.  It seems like only yesterday that I was photographing newborn Charlie, and now he is nearly 2 years old and walking (running) and talking all over the house.

Elliott is just as precious as can be and it was wonderful to see Molly and John again and to be welcomed back to their home for more newborn and family photos.  We had to work quick with Charlie as he wasn’t super interested in posing for me (what 2 year old is??).  But after a little patience on both my end and Molly and John’s we were able to get that sweet little baby to fall asleep and got some beautiful images of him.  I absolutely adore the ones of him on the furry white rug wrapped up in his momma and daddy’s hands.  I love the perspective of how tiny he is in relation to their hands.  It never ceases to amaze me, no matter how many newborns I see or photograph, about how tiny and helpless they are.  And to think that every single one of us started out that way…  So small, so perfect, so innocent.  And yet, we all grow up and become the people we are meant to be, one way or another.  It would be nice if we could just freeze time and enjoy those precious tiny people for just a little longer.  But alas, that is the power of photography, and the reason I stay so busy.  The moments pass quickly and if they are not captured, they are that much harder to remember and look back on.

Thank you to Molly and John for coming back to me for more precious moments, frozen in time.  :-)  I hope to be there to capture your family as both boys grow up more and more!

Golden Maternity Photographer: The Snow Family

Golden Maternity Photographer:  I just read on FB that my clients (and friends) Lauren and Nick’s little bundle of baby boy joy, Jack Snow, was born yesterday, August 19th at 11:18pm.  YAY!  I am so excited because not only did I get the honor of capturing their maternity photos, but I am also lined up to take newborn photos of Jack in a few short days from now.

I first met Lauren and Nick for their very special, and beyond gorgeous (that word doesn’t begin to capture it) wedding day on NYE 2011, and before that, for their engagement session in San Diego, CA.  We had an instantaneous connection and I knew that we were going to be fast friends.  I wasn’t wrong.  I spent one of the most fun NYE’s ever with them and all of their family and friends at a fabulous and wild party at the Cables Center in Denver where I couldn’t help but join in on the dance floor and get down with the guests, complete with glow necklaces, silly hats and confetti poppers.

Lauren had the most wonderful things to say about me after her wedding day!  She reviewed me on the knot and said: “Frances will be one of the best investments you’ll make if you hire her. She will deliver everything that’s promised, and more. And besides, she is the nicest, cutest photographer ever anyway, such a fun time! She has such a darling personality, and is just all around awesome! During the dancing at the reception, she was dancing with us while taking pictures. Instead of standing there awkwardly to the side, Frances blended right into the wedding crowd and captured real moments. I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding photos I will have for the rest of my life of our wedding- they are truly priceless. I can’t wait to have her shoot us in the future- any time I possibly can, because she is THAT GOOD! Babies, families, fun, anything!”

Awe, thanks sweetie!  I didn’t even see that review until a few months ago. Ha!  And it appears hat last part has certainly come true!  As soon as Lauren and Nick were expecting, I got a phone call about baby photos.  I have a feeling I will be seeing much more of the Snow family this year and for years to come.  Congratulations Lauren and Nick!  I am over the moon for you both and I cannot wait to meet baby Jack.  He is so lucky to have been born to the two of you.  You are going to be amazing parents, just like the amazing people you already are!  XOXOX

Maternity Photography Colorado: Danielle, Jim, and Izzy

Maternity Photography Colorado:  Danielle is a wonderful and well-loved friend of mine that I have know ever since we were little girls in dance and gymnastics class together back in Fort Morgan, both of our hometown.  She also happens to work for me!  She does all of the submissions of weddings and other photo shoots that I do for consideration to be published in magazines, blogs, and in other media.  Since she has come to work for me, my work has been getting published everywhere! THANK YOU DANIELLE!  Needless to say, she has been a wonderful addition to my team.

In addition, I have had the pleasure of photographing her on many different occasions since we reconnected as adults….at her wedding, for a boudoir session, a maternity session for her first born, and every several months after that as well.  Isabella (Izzy) is just the cutest thing ever!  Here are a couple of links to her 6 month and 9 month baby photos.

As a thank you for her continued friendship, loyalty and hard work, I decided to give her the gift of a maternity session for her second baby, born about two weeks ago.  The last time we took maternity photos (with Isabella) she ended up having the baby the very next day!  I think that was also her hope this time around.  However, baby boy Blaise John Kirk decided he wanted to cook for a little while longer and wasn’t born for another week and a half on July 9th, weighing in at 9.9 lbs and was 20 inches long!  WOW, talk about a big baby!!!

I haven’t had a chance to meet him yet, but I can’t wait!  Love you Danielle and I think these photos are just beautiful!  I hope you will treasure them forever.

Maternity Photography Denver: Wickliff’s Round 2

Maternity Photography Denver:  Katie and John Wickliff have been hiring me as their special moments photographer for the last 5 years.  Not only are they very special clients, but they have also become wonderful friends and I have seen them in SO many different lights throughout the years, it is mind boggeling.  We began our journey together at their engagement photo shoot in 2009, followed by their wedding in Beaver Creek in 2010. After that we stayed in touch and had fun wine dates with them and their next door neighbors, the Cogdall family (who coincidentally, I also photographed from engagement to wedding to baby’s first year to baby’s first year #2!)

When Katie became pregnant with their first son, Connor, they decided to do my baby’s first year collection for him too.  Since then, I have seen them every several months from the first maternity photo shoot, to Connor’s newborn photos, to his three month baby photos, to his six month photos, to his nine month photos, to his one year session, to a special family photo shoot when Connor was about 1 and a half (Just for fun! And for Christmas Cards).

And now, we are about to start it all again with their second baby girl, Piper!  To say that I know the Wickliff family intimately would be an understatement!  I think the only thing I haven’t done with them photo-wise at this point is a boudoir session with Katie!  HA!  And I’m guessing post baby #2, we will probably add that to the long list!

When I say that I love this family, I mean it from the bottom of my heart.  Katie and John, you have such a wonderful family, you are beautiful people (both inside and out), and your loyalty to me and my business has not gone without notice.  I can’t wait for many, many more months (and years!!) of family photos and fun times with you and your beautiful children.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
