Another session with the twins in Breckenridge.

I really appreciate the families that I’ve worked with for multiple years in a row. I happily went out for the third year this fall to photograph Melissa’s family.  I love working with her boys and even though it makes her crazy when they don’t smile for the photo- I don’t mine. I like photographing the real personalities whether that is a smile or just “a look”.  Kids are transparent so it’s fun to capture how they are feeling at that moment. Smiles are great, but I appreciate the candid images just as much. Therefore, I end up with a nice mix of posed and candid moments that show exactly what they were feeling at the time.  It’s the real deal.

A fun photo session in Cordillera

These sweet twins met me at the golf course while the colors were peaking.  We had stellar weather and even though there is amazing autumn foliage, I still love to see some of these images as black & white! Working with kids never gets old. They constantly inspire me with their ability to be so very pure and truly authentic.

Summer in Summit

When you start the day by giving your groomsmen beer steins… it’s always a good idea to hire transportation! The Turtle Bus made made it’s way over the pass from Vail for a guest appearance in Summit! What a cool idea! Having the Turtle Bus follow us around on the photo & video tour before the ceremony made for a hilarious and fun day!!
Emma & Brian. What can I say other than…perfectly matched and so in love. Such genuine emotion in these images.

Welcoming the new addition to the family !

This amazing family decided that a portrait session was in order as they now have a brand new member of the family! This little sweetie was the star of the show and all of his Uncles and one Aunt were clearly so proud of their new nephew.  A photography session on a warm, summer day is the perfect way to celebrate additions to the family – no matter the age. I had fun capturing images of all the grown siblings as well and just love the close relationships of this crew.

A Summer Wedding at the Keystone Ranch

We all love the Keystone Ranch. It’s historic and elegant with the perfect mix of old and new. You will find an atmosphere of rustic elegance, set in an authentic 1930’s homestead.

I simply can’t think of a wedding venue that says “Colorado” any more than the Ranch!
