Last year I was able to document the birth story of Ireland. I always love when families continue to return to me for other sessions. I currently only offer a small number of family sessions here in Denver, and those will be announced here in the next few weeks. I wold love to photograph your family this fall in Colorado!

Can you believe this session happened on a WHIM?!?! I am so glad I was able to talk her into going out into the desert with me for an hour. It was extremely windy but it was so beautiful out. I am so glad we were able to sneak in this session because she and her family just relocated from the desert to the east coast. After I delivered her gallery she sent me message after message thanking me for these photos- she didn't have any of just her and sweet Alina. I can't stress enough how important it is to present in images with your children. That is something I am personally trying to do better with. I still have a handful of mommy and me sessions available in the Denver Metro Area in May.

I am also so excited to announce that I am offering two different types of mentoring. 1 hour online mentoring and 3 hour in person mentoring for Denver and Tucson! Click HERE for mentoring information!!
I realized last week that I NEVER shared the full birth story of sweet little Rowan. I really love it when mom's write their own birth stories. I will never forget Rowan's delivery. Jonea was so strong and even though her birth plan went into the toilet she handled the changes so amazingly. Sweet Rowan was born with a True Knot in her cord which is extremely rare. Head over and read Jonea's birth story in her own words.. There is swears and complete honesty :) There is nothing more amazing than being allowed into a woman's birth space.
I am now booking a select number of births in the Denver Metro Area. My first two births booked, contract signed and deposit paid, are discounted by 400.00. All birth stories include a full maternity session and full birth coverage. I would be honored to tell your birth story and I am so excited to be offering birth stories in Denver Colorado.
I had the honor of spending a day with the Ramp Family recently to kick off the launch of my "Your Story" sessions! These sessions can be partial days or full days but they are always so much fun. Your ordinary is worth documenting and remembering. My Your Story sessions are currently discounted for anyone that books in the month of February. You do not have to have your session in February. These sessions can take place in Colorado Springs, Denver Metro, and Fort Collins CO. They can also take place when I am in Tucson in March.
All sessions include your edited digital gallery as well a video slideshow set to music!
Being a military spouse, military homecomings are very near and dear to me. I was really excited when Candi messaged me and asked me to come document her husbands homecoming on the flight line. The weather was gorgeous for us and her husband arrived right on time... which is unheard of!! I also love being able to document families reuniting. I am now available for homecomings in the Denver Metro Area.
I met Haylea in a local photography group when I was still living in Tucson. She and I became fast friends and I consider her one of my best friends! I really LOVE photographing other photographers, photographer families are just naturals in front of the camera. I can such minimal directing, if any at all. I don't really do much directing in my sessions anyway, I kind of just plop people in a field and tell them to interact with each other, but R. Family just made it so easy. I highly recommend checking out some of Hayley's gorgeous work on her website I hope when I am in Tucson later this year I can get them in front of my camera again.
The past month and a half has been a time of transition for my family as we move from Tucson AZ to Denver CO. I have been documenting my family through this transition to remember this crazy time in our life.
Haylea is a fellow photographer here in Tucson and I was so honored when she asked me to be part of their homecoming. When we first connected a few months ago I knew we would become friends. Haylea is so wonderful and up lifting. Her husband Ryan had been gone since the beginning of the year and I had yet to meet him. Our evening started off a little bit crazy, we decided to head out about 30 minutes early to sneak in a mommy and me session of her and her beautiful son at sunset but she called me because she locked her keys in her car! I was luckily by her friends house that had her spare and I was able to get it to her in time. By the time we made it to my open desert the sun was nearly gone but we had about 5 minutes of light left. It was totally worth it. I am glad we decided to head out early because if we hadn't we may have missed Ryan's flight! We got to the airport with about 30 minutes to spare and we had some fun playing around before Ryan arrived. That night there were several service members coming home, it was a really wonderful night. I am so glad this little family is reunited again and I hope they have quite sometime before they are separated once more.
Military Homecomings have a very special place in my heart. I can honestly say that they are my second favorite type of session (right behind births). This was a huge homecoming where roughly 300 service members were arriving home from one of our base's biggest deployments ever. Whenever I am at the airport, or on the flight line waiting very impatiently for that plane to arrive, this quote always runs though my head.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around." -Love Actually
The amount of love and anticipation in the room is really an adrenaline rush. No matter who is coming home, my hands get clammy, I get butterflies in my stomach and my mind starts going a million miles a minute.
The W. Family has been counting down the days for months for this one special moment. I am so honored that Amber asked me to be there with them. I got to document this homecoming a bit different than my normal homecomings because Amber also happens to live just 4 houses away from me. I loved being able to be in their home while they finished their final preparations for Andrew to come home. It was raining and cool out it was also 10:00pm. Since this homecoming had so many people arriving home it was held on base which is always amazing. The news was there, and so many of my photographer friends were there as well. The happiness in this hanger was radiating well beyond the hanger it's self. Thank You W. Family for letting me be part of this wonderful moment in your life~
I also wanted to put a little PSA here.. I get booked out for homecomings months in advance. This specific homecoming has been booked since February- it also unfortunately overlapped with another homecoming booked out a few months ago as well and I could only be in one place. It's is very important to communicate with your photographer and your spouse as much as possible when it gets close to the homecoming. Please inform your spouse that you have hired someone to be there with you, this could alleviate a lot of confusion. For this specific homecoming I had people calling and messaging me all the way up until 5pm on the day of arrival.
If you need a homecoming photographer I have two available spots open for the remaining of the year, one in September and one in November.
