Courage Classic Bicycle Tour | Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation

During training season for the 2017 Courage Classic bicycle tour, which takes place July 22-23, I met up with one of the bike tour's seasoned athletes, Kim, to get some inspiring photos of her on the trails!

Supporting Children's Hospital Colorado patients and their families, the Courage Classic welcomes 2,000 riders every year to bike for two days over Rocky Mountain passes, ending in scenic Copper Mountain.

The adventure starts early for athletes like Kim, who has been training for months in preparation for the high altitude and steep mountain climbs.

I followed Kim into the foothills of the Rockies to get some action shots of her, and boy did we luck out with a warm breeze at sunset and the trails to ourselves. I love seeing athletes like Kim following their passions and inspiring all of us to get outside, do good in the world, and push yourself!

You can follow Kim's cycling team, The Frequent Flyers, on Instagram. As a physician's assistant, Kim and her team are all members of the Children's Hospital Colorado Emergency Medicine staff. They're a group of inspiring women who know how to make dirt & sweat look good!

Newborn Evelyn Josephine | Family and Baby Photographer | Denver, Colorado

Welcome to the world, sweet Evie Jo!

Newborn babies are full of surprises - tiny smiles, unexpected giggles, and that firm little grip on your finger. :) I recently stopped by the home of newborn Evelyn Josephine (nicknamed Evie Jo by her adorable parents), and boy was I surprised by how angelic this little lady is!

Her mom and I slipped some angel wings on Evie's back, and just like magic I was able to soothe her into the most peaceful little pose. (Thank God for milk comas!)

Born in June, Evelyn has an exciting summer ahead of her! Before long, she'll be cooing and crawling. Being a newborn photographer is such an honor - I absolutely love being a part of a baby's first two weeks and capturing the sweetness of this stage of life.

Having a baby soon? Schedule your newborn session for the first two weeks of baby's birth to get these angelic poses! I offer custom photo sessions based on your interests, and I can easily set up a studio in your home, which my clients find is most comfortable for them and easiest for newborns. Contact me and let's chat!

Chris Stapleton | Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater | Colorado Music & Concert Photography

At the end of May I photographed soulful country star Chris Stapleton live at Red Rocks in Colorado. I was also asked to write a review of the show for Listen Up Denver, and you can read a portion of my review below! :) Also, enjoy a handful of these photos from the sold-out show that was for sure one for the books!! Starting out as a photographer in 2012, the first subject I learned to photograph was live music right here in Colorado. It has been such an honor to continue photographing the legendary musicians that pass through the Rocky Mountains. Although I've expanded my portfolio to weddings, families, and more, I will never stop photographing concerts and musicians! My passion and appreciation for music continues to be inspired by every band I photograph, and of course the front row seat is icing on the cake. ;) Enjoy and Happy Thursday!!

p.s. I'd love to hear what concert you're most looking forward to this summer! Who knows - I may be there taking pictures! Leave me a comment and let me know!

Chris Stapleton "All American Road Show" Tour - Red Rocks Amphitheater - May 24, 2017
Although he’s been receiving industry recognition for almost a decade (Stapleton was first nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009), , the humble family man who has quickly rose to the top of the charts in country music, is loved not only by country music fans but by fans of all genres.  His deep voice is full of soul and has roots that are reminiscent of Johnny CashMerle Haggardand the current Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band.  Stapleton quickly sold-out two nights at Red Rocks this summer, which was certain to be recognized nationwide. Many fans traveled to Colorado to catch Stapleton at Red Rocks, while the rest of the crowd was made up of local fans of Country, Soul, and even Blues music.  We settled into our seats after a long wait in traffic to catch most of Brothers Osborne’s opening set.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to kick off Summer than dancing with your friends at Red Rocks to Chris Stapleton’s signature hit, “Tennessee Whiskey.” And the chaser to our whiskey-soaked night was that amazing Colorado weather that is quickly becoming less of a secret.

While Chris and his wife, Morgane Stapleton, took us away with them on a romantic, yet rockin’ night of live music, the sold-out crowd kept the beers flowing and made sure the Stapleton’s knew they were among friends in Colorado.

Chris Stapleton may be known for that raspy, sexy voice of his, but his guitar playing is not to be overlooked. His entire band really impressed me and I’ll be looking out for their next stop in Colorado.

The Hueseman Family | City Park - Denver Colorado | Family Portrait Photographer

With 2 year-old Otto in tow, Jordan + Reanne recently met me at Denver's City Park for some springtime family photos! We got there right before sunset, and were blessed with great weather and a happy kiddo.

It was well into the shoot before the gummy bears no longer worked to get smiles from little Otto, but his playful attitude, adorable outfit, and total adoration of his parents made for some awesome photos. :)

This family is a repeat client of mine, and I always love when they want to have photos taken. They're such genuinely kind people, and watching their family grow has truly been a pleasure!!

Contact me to set up your own family photo session in Colorado! This is the time of year to do it, and I am bursting with awesome ideas for locations and poses. :)
