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!

National Pet Day | Denver Colorado Pet Portrait Photographer

Yesterday was National Pet Day! As a dog lover and dog mom of little husky Lu, I always get excited when my clients invite their pets to our photo shoots. If you're considering bringing a pet into your family, please consider rescuing! I rescued Lu when she was already full-grown and she could have been overlooked as people are more interested in puppies. Bringing her home was the best thing that ever happened to me! Here are some ways to keep animals top-of-mind throughout the year, and below are a couple photos of my furry best friend. :)

1. Adopt a pet from your local shelter or purebred rescue organization.

2. Volunteer at your local shelter.

3. Donate blankets, food and toys to a favorite animal welfare organization.

4. Organize a peaceful demonstration in front of your community pet store that sells pets from puppy or kitten mills.

5. Host a pet-friendly BBQ this spring.

6. Assist an ill, elderly or a financially struggling neighbor or friend by purchasing pet food, hay or needed items for their pets.

7. Buy your pet a fun new toy....or two...or five.

8. Hire KellYeah Photography for a fun pet-friendly photo shoot!
