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!

Ah, Summer…

I absolutely love working with kids in the summer! I guess it’s just so much easier than photographing in the snow and dealing with cold fingers and toes. If you haven’t had new portraits made of your child in a year or more… I hope these images will motivate you to reserve some time with me to capture the beauty of your family and your children in this gorgeous, Colorado summer weather.

Breckenridge Engagement

What a fun engagement portrait session we had on a snowy, spring day in Breckenridge.  Joanna & Ryan are having the Dillon Dam Brewery brew a special beer for their wedding reception.
One of these photos will become the “custom” label for their own bottles of beer. Naturally, they wanted their favorites things – dogs & bikes – to be in the photos as well.  I’m excited to see what image will be selected as the label!! Stay tuned
