Must Love Dogs

Dogs are a huge part of our lives here in the mountains and I love photographing people with their furry best friends so they will have professional photos that they can treasure forever! Goodness knows these sweet friends of ours never last as long as we want them to.  Here are some of my favourite shots taken recently in Vail and Breckenridge.

I’ve worked with this family for a couple of years now and really enjoy photographing their family portraits for their holiday cards each year.

A new addition to the family?

Often times, it is the Matriarch of the family that calls me for a photo shoot of the extended family. It is she who books the house and arranges for all of her kids and grandkids to come out to the mountains to celebrate a reunion – for any reason. “Give us a reason to get together and we will!” said one of my clients.

More often than not, there is a fresh face in the family that they are all excited to see. I can help to celebrate the new arrival with photos! With the multigenerational family groups, I begin the photography with the entire group first, then break down into the separate families, followed by fun shots of the grandkids with grandparents, adult siblings, all cousins etc. Finally, we end the session on the lawn with a blanket and baby. The proud Grandparents always love being photographed with the little one and I truly enjoy these moments as well.

I always offer a mix of black & white as well as color too since so I am a fan of both!!

Yes – I take outdoor baby photos. All we need is a warm summer day and a blanket!

Just dreaming of summer…

I love this family! This was our 3rd time photographing together and it was a blast.  We caught the very last light of day in the Vail Valley with the Gore Range in the background.

A Fun, Friday Night Wedding at Keystone Resort.

Once again, Keystone’s Timberhearth Lodge was set to impress.  A lot of this is because the wedding couple hired Kaylee’s crew from Petal & Bean and they never fail to take a venue from ordinary to outstanding within a couple of hours!  Additionally, the large group of employees from Keystone are a professional bunch, making everyone comfortable while high up in the mountains, two gondola rides away from anything.
This couple also had an amazing wedding party. Their friendships went back to kindergarten so the memories and emotions were in full force! We truly had a lot of fun photographing at Keystone on this Friday night.

Yes, that’s a wedding party of 21. Pretty amazing to pull together so many close friends and gather them all on a mountain top.

An amazing summer wedding in Breckenridge

Big Sky Ranch, a majestic home rented out on VRBO makes an amazing venue for smaller weddings. The views of Breckenridge Ski Resort are second to none from this deck.  Elise & Jonathon celebrated with close friends and family members for an intimate celebration of love in the mountains!

 

Happily Married
