Michelle- Senior

This photo shoot was full of firsts for me. It was my first time shooting at 7 am. Yes...that's right. It was a very early morning for me to be out and about with a new baby at home, but it was such a blessing. I loved driving through the mountains, listening to my Glenn Packiam cd and worshiping Jesus. Loved it.

Then my second "first" came when I arrived for the first time in Green Mountain Falls, CO. A quaint town within the mountains near Woodland Park, CO. I LOVED it! It was full of photo opportunities and the peaceful morning engulfed me.

Now on to the fabulous Michelle. This senior is so sweet, fun and easy going. At 7 am she was willing to be bright eyed and creative. Through multiple wardrobe changes and walking down the middle of main street, she carried a positive attitude that refreshed me. I know she's going to have a fulfilling and exciting senior year at Woodland Park High School.

Congratulations on this special time of life Michelle! I loved spending time with you.

PS. You'll see more of Michelle next summer. I am photographing her older brother's wedding in June 2011. Stay tuned :)

Now on to the photos...

Stunning eyes.
I love the light of the left picture...the sun was just coming up over the mountains.

The King's- Family

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of spontaneously photographing the beautiful King family. My friend and neighbor, Christine, asked if I could take photos of her husband's family while his brother and sister-in-law were in town. I said, "Of course!"

It was so much fun meeting all of the Kings...a kind and generous family with abundant love between them.


Proud grandparents with their girls.
I love how the two older sisters are looking after their littlest sister as she squirms in her chair. Cute.
Sisters :)

Taysen- 1 Year

What fun it has been to photograph this wonderful family and sweet little girl over the past year. I'm so honored that Chris and Heather have entrusted me with precious family moments and their little girl's milestones in life.

Sweet Taysen is the adorable face below. I photographed her just a few days after she was born, then again at 6 months. Now she is a year old and oh so cute!!

Enjoy this exceptionally colorful photo shoot. All was perfect...the weather, the outfits...and of course the chair in the middle of nature! Love it.

Happy 1 year birthday Taysen!

PS. If you like Taysen's adorable head bands please visit this blog to find out more and see more hair accessories for little girls. Our friend Jenni Goodlin makes them and they are fabulous!

Family- The Sigler's

Meeting new people has become my favorite thing about taking photos. What a great opportunity to encounter delightful people and in turn give them tangible memories they can hold on to for years...

Such is the case with the Sigler family.

We met for the first time at Rock Ledge Ranch here in Colorado Springs, CO for a family photo shoot. Immediately I knew it was going to be a great time. The whole family was so easy going...and as soon as I found out they were Miami Dolphins fans I knew it was going to be worth every second :) (ps. I love the Miami Dolphins...NFL season is quickly approaching!)

Enjoy the sweetness of this family. They will be moving from Colorado soon, which is definitely Colorado's loss. It was great to meet you Sigler's!!
