Family Photo Session {Loveland Mountain Park, CO}

I love kids and beside photographing weddings, taking pictures of little kids makes me happy. This year I got a chance to photograph one of my client's family again - Taryn emailed me a few months ago and we planned a family photo session around this time of year. Taryn and Brad have such cute, expressive kids - I can go on photographing them hours and hours! And their nice, colorful, coordinated outfits....the credit has to go to mom, of course! ;)

Thanks Taryn and Brad for another opportunity this year to photograph your beautiful family - hope you enjoy these photos. Talk to you soon! :)

Let's start it off with a formal family photo...everybody's smiling... good!

Ryan, the baby of the family...last time I photographed him, he wasn't even walking. He's walking and running everywhere now :) It's kinda cool to see them "grow" in front of my camera.

Family Photo Session {Fort Collins, CO}

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do a family session for one of my in-laws family (Nick, Jessica and Glenna). Nick is Joe's oldest brother and the bigger/taller version of Joe. When Joe and I got married, a few of our guests had told me that they've almost mistaken Nick for Joe :) lol.

I was particularly excited to shoot in this early fall days. Fall foliage is just simply gorgeous and the air is just so cool and crisp. Love it! And of course, with objects like this good looking family - I was content! ;) Thanks Nick and Jessica - it was good hanging out with you guys again, I hope you all enjoy these!! ♥

Here are some of my faves from the shoot:

Jessica mentioned that they never had any engagement photos of them taken so I did a few quick snaps of them two without Glenna.

I brought this sucker along for Glenna to 'bribe' her for the photo shoot. I think she enjoyed it a little too much! ;)

Baby-Bump Update!

Haven't had much personal update here on my blog... well here I am at 31 weeks along. One word: HUGE! Baby is growing and I can feel a lot of kicks and movements from the inside out these days. I can't believe it's only about 9 more weeks before I'll get to hold a tiny baby in my arms. So excited - can't wait til December! :)

Family Session {Lyons, CO}

A little while ago last month I photographed this beautiful family in Lyons, CO. Carol had told me that she wanted the photo session to be done at their house. What a wise decision that was - the surrounding views of where they live was very nice out there with the beautiful mountains in the background. And the lush Russian sage in front of their house! purple is one of my fave colors, so it worked and I totally loved it! ;)
