Pink Burst | Ready to Pop | Mama-to-be Maternity Shoot 💕

Super fun time shooting this darling, gorgeous, strong, Mama-to-be for her maternity session at the Denver Photo Collective’s newest studio space in Downtown Denver. The new studio is located in the vibrant Santa Fe Art District area and offers the metro area and surrounding a great space for photography, events and creative collabs. For their Grand Opening, they set up a lovely styled set in various pink shades with their new dusty rose colored velvet sofa. I knew this would be a great match for photographing mama Hanna, who is due any day with her first baby girl, and blessed the opportunity and timing made it all happen. The DPC has their original studio located right near my hood in the Lakewood area, just west of Denver. I can book time at either studio and can’t wait to capture all you lovelies in studio and beyond. Here’s a peek at some of my favorite shots from Hanna’s session. Can you believe this mama can do all her yoga posing just a couple weeks before her due date? Amazing strength and flexibility! And, so inspiring! Sending vitality & healthy vibes to this warrior woman for a strong labor & birth. Namaste.

October is a symphony of permanence and change. -Bonaro W. Overstreet

Here’s a wonderful family that returned to me for updated family photos. It is a pleasure to capture your family’s seasonal, special event, annual or biannual portraits, to preserve your memories as your family grows and changes.
I love the drama that the golden backlight and ginger color from the fall foliage can add to a family session. For photographers, Autumn in October can be such a rich time to frame your subjects in the natural environment, with trees, leaves and rustic backdrop. In Colorado, the crisp early freeze changed the fall foliage from buttery bright to a bit dry & moody quickly over the past couple of weeks, but it still left us with a bit of whimsy, to embrace the season, for these just-before dusk casual portrait shots. I’m crushing on the movement my littlest subject here, with her wavy blond curls, created while twirling to add something special for this year’s adventure with her family’s photo session with me. Want to start your own tradition of having family photos taken? Contact me and let’s create a session together.

I’m so glad I squeezed this darling crew in at the end of a sunshine and warm temperature day, because less than 12 hours after this shoot, the Colorado temps had dropped to 21 degrees with snow! What a treasure to photograph these amazing triplets and their equally amazing parents! Kids move fast, but these darlings are so well-behaved and kind and I feel blessed to have captured some sweet frames! They sure make my job fun, keep me challenged and on my toes.

Sometimes the best photos aren’t perfectly posed or showing each family member with a perfect smile, sometimes just capturing those moments of closeness to document this season in life make for a cherished photo. I just love photographing your families, when you’ve taken the effort to style yourselves up and come with an open & hopeful heart to get some family portraits!

October, one of my favorite months! The excitement of Halloween, apple pie, Fall festivals, Fall colors, sweater weather, boots and crisp cool evenings. It’s also one of my busiest photography times, for family portraits and beyond. This season I’m privileged to meet some new families and snap their photos in a variety of settings. Such a joy to meet this crew, with handsome, polite and photogenic tween & teen boys and a gorgeous set of parents to complete their sweet family.

We can capture the essence of Fall, the fashion, the crisp & cozy atmosphere in an urban setting like this one, with gritty, but quaint brick or street textures or we can find a natural trees and changing leaves outdoorsy setting. Whatever we do, wherever we shoot, the focus is capturing your memories. Here are some favorites I snapped at this session.
