The Sifford Family | Kansas City, Missouri | Colorado + Missouri Family Photography

I've been so busy taking Fall Family Portraits that I'm now behind on my blogging! That said, it's super fun to look back at these photos of the wonderful families I worked with months ago and get to re-live the fun all over again!

You may or may not know I grew up in the sweet, wholesome state of Missouri, although I've lived in Colorado for almost a decade. I make my way back to the midwest a few times a year to visit family & friends, and to photograph as many of the wonderful people there I can squeeze into each trip!

This past summer during a visit to Kansas City, I had the privilege of photographing the incredibly FUN family of April + Dave. Here are a handful of my favorites from our photo shoot at KC's Loose Park - I think you'll smile just as big as I did when you see little Will's goofy faces! Both boys, Jack + Will, were full of awesome energy and loved having their pictures taken. And of course, I just had to include the family's goldendoodle Abner in as many photos as possible - he was just as happy as the rest of his family since the whole photo shoot felt like a playdate for him!

I'd love to hear from you in the comments after browsing through the below photos, and don't forget to get in touch with me soon to schedule YOUR family portrait session! October is 100% the best month of the year to get your loved ones together for photos, and just in time for your holiday cards!! :)

The Rhoads Family | Granby, Colorado | Denver Family Photographer

Last week I made the gorgeous drive through the Rocky Mountains, over the winding Berthoud Pass and through Winter Park, where I met the Rhoads family of five (six if we count Tebow, their goldendoodle!) for some family photos at Lake Granby.

Oh how Mother Nature blessed us!! The rain had been pouring all afternoon and stopped just as we gathered for our photo shoot. I had chosen a special spot I'd recently found while scouting mountain locations. With the incredibly picturesque Lake Granby and stunning mountain peaks as our backdrop, we were full of laughs as I snapped away and captured some beautiful memories of the Rhoads' family vacation.

It was only a week prior that I'd gotten a call from Amy, asking if I'd meet her family in the mountains to take photos during their summer vacation to Colorado. After driving cross-country from St. Louis, Missouri (dog in-tow!), they settled into their cabin and kicked off their trip with a family portrait session.

Are you planning a trip to Colorful Colorado? I'll meet you in the mountains to capture memories for YOUR family in the most picturesque settings!

Life is full of fun adventures that should be captured in photos to last a lifetime!

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!
