I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned lately how much I love in home shoots. I get to see a couple or family interact in their element, and capture those beautiful unstaged moments of life – because that’s what we’re doing day to day, isn’t it?
Katie and Ryan were not only supremely comfortable, but also clearly in love. Look at their interactions and tell me this isn’t #goals.
Even though I live in Boulder, I love to travel, see new areas and meet new people. Let’s talk!
When Kim and Meade asked me to capture their engagement moments when they flew in from Chicago, I obviously said YES.
We met in Boulder Canyon and captured some lovely moments that come close to showing the amount of love they share for each other.
When I saw a VW bus chilling in the lawn, I knew we had to take advantage of it. Weirdly enough, I have one that’s pretty much the exact same color blue, but at that time the battery had died and I couldn’t drive it. Is that fate or what?!
Check out some of our shots that do well of emphasizing my perfect session: movement, laughter and REALNESS.
This past week, my fiancé and I decided to get a Christmas tree. We decided on a ‘live’ tree because I have a strange empathy for plants. Or maybe I’m just strange.
We started off with a solid breakfast at 24 Carrot Bistro in Erie, CO. I highly recommend eating there if you’re ever in the area – the mocktails are to de for. I’m sure the cocktails are too, but it was 9am.
After that we headed over to The Tree Farm. Anyone who lives in Denver has probably heard the catchy jingle on the radio (5 miles west to The Tree Farm). We found the perfect little tree, and then we headed home to decorate.
A couple of months back I came across the Puffy & Chunk page on Facebook. If you haven’t seen it yet you need to check it out. Hilarious cat antics 24/7.
Anyhoooo I decided to email Kira (the human behind the magic) and asked if I could come by and take some photos. She agreed and now here we are. On the shoot I discovered Kira was totally awesome and now I can go visit her and the kitties whenever I want!
Super, super excited to share this shoot. I mean … Look at this family. Is this not #goals or what?
Their house is full of lovely natural light so um, duh, we’re gonna shoot there.
First, we made cookies while listening to Grateful Dead records and then we played some Christmas carols on the guitar – well, dad did. These awesome parents publish Boulder Lifestyle magazine, where I consider myself very blessed to work.
It’s currently 7 in Louisville today, so yeah. Get your coffee and your whisky, and turn on some old school animated Christmas movies.
Whew! I’m back! It took a bit, but I’m somewhat fully sorta committed to blogging again. I’m going to share some photos from a shootout I attended in Louisville, CO near Boulder. There were so many awesome couples to work with, direct and obviously photograph. It was a cool time.
So many cool vendors came together to make this shoot work. Here they are:
Organizers: Kelly Wilkerson + Sharee Davenport
Hair + Makeup Artist: April with Kim J Beauty
Tablescape: Lilli Black with Sweetly Paired
Allison is a Denver-based designer who operates Peach & Pepper apparel. She drove to Boulder to meet me for some fun fashion photos of her new Spring designs.
Allison’s clothing is all sewn in Denver by local artisans. She carefully selects fabric and designs each item specifically. Flagstaff Mountain in Boulder was the perfect place to showcase her unique styles and designs.
Mallory operates a blog called Sweet and Sauer based on fashion and lifestyle. She describes her choices of outfits, and gets into deeper subjects such as her melanoma diagnoses and treatment. Mallory is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
I’m not terribly familiar with Denver, though I am trying to get better. Mallory took me to a coffeeshop in the RiNo district, and we enjoyed an afternoon walking through alleys and stepping over garbage. It was awesome. We got some fun, moody shots of fashion mixed with a semi-industrial area of Denver.
Lacey is a fashion blogger out of Denver. Her blog, My Boring Closet, follows fashion trends for those who want to keep things interesting with “a small closet.” I’ve been known to overflow closets. Currently I have two full ones, and a dresser, but I digress. Maybe I could take some lessons in downsizing.
Lacey was totally cool, and we had a blast at Union Station grabbing some shots. Union Station is historic, beautiful, and offers lots of dramatic light sources which I am a huge fan of. Check out some of my favorite shots from our afternoon together.
So, guys. I’m really bad at blogging. Like really, really bad. I’m not saying it’s a New Year’s resolution, but it’s definitely some sort of resolution that I get better at blogging.
Duke is an 8 year old Boxer from Lakewood, Colorado. He and his humans met me in Boulder for a fun little morning session on Flagstaff mountain. Duke was quite the doggy model. We all had a great time.
