{The Jewett Family} Colorado Springs Lifestyle Family Photographer

Sometimes in life you get inspired. That's exactly what happened when I began planning the Jewett Family Photoshoot. Carrie, who happens to be a very close friend of mine, loves VW Vans...I mean LOVES them!!! So about six months prior to this session, I called her up & explained my vision. She was immediately on-board & began researching, plotting & planning how to get or rather borrow a VW Van. Once she pinned one down to rent for her session, I began plotting & planning: location, wardrobe & ideas. Together we collaborated beautifully and it couldn't have gone better in my opinion. The session went off without a hitch. Weather, including sunset was amazing, family looked top-notch, VW Van sparkled & mountain backdrop was to die for. Our theme was kind of beachy vibe in the mountains. I don't do a lot of styled sessions, but when they are friends, I make an exception.;) Take a peek at this gorgeous family...

{Styled Bohemian-CustomJewelry Photoshoot} Colorado Springs Styled Photographer

There are so many words I could use to describe this fabulously vintage boho session, but beautifully fun (ok, that's two;)) come to mind first!!! These are three of my gorgeous nieces who also just so happened to be quite the fashionistas. The purpose behind this styled session is to highlight my amazingly talented sister, Wendy, who creates one of a kind custom hand-made jewelry. (Wendy's Vintage Designs). She can be found via FB & or Instagram as well as Etsy @ wendysvintagedesigns. Seriously...I am in LOVE with every single piece she creates. Her brilliant design makes it effortless and fun to switch & swap charms. It comes in a variety of colors & shades from soft vintage pink hues to out of this world ocean blues. Not only will she be at some of the upcoming local craft fairs, such as Rock Ledge Ranch & Palmer Ridge High School, but she also custom creates necklaces, bracelets, boot bling & more!!! If you want your very own custom made piece (or maybe one for a friend, mother-in-law) contact her at Wendyhoagberg@hotmail.com. or (719)229-7956. So, take a peek at her unbelievably gorgeous jewelry & try not to be distracted by the pretty ladies.;) Ha-ha!!! What a fun morning we had though...I mean, SERIOUSLY!!! =) I love my job!

{Cousins} A sweet bohemian styled session--Colorado Springs Photographer

There are days that I'm completely 100% inspired by the world around me...fashion, hair, lighting, weather. I just so happen to LOVE boho style everything: dresses, jewelry, boots, vests, etc. So what could be better than taking two of my favorite people outdoors for a fun stylized boho session?!! Abby, is my 15yr. old niece & the brunette you probably recognize (my daughter, Sadie, who is 12 going on 30.;)) No, but really, both of these young ladies frequently get asked if they are older than they are. Maturity, looks, similar personalities when it comes to being responsible & level headed. I just love them & so glad I was able to make this session happen. These pictures will no doubt hold a special place in their hearts for years to come. =) Instead of rambling on about location, wardrobe, weather...let's just delve right into the good stuff: the magical photos!

{The Seube Family} Colorado Springs Styled Session Photographer

Matt is a local firefighter in the Colorado Springs area & called me up to ask if I would do a styled session: part 1 at Fire Station 1 off of Weber Street (the oldest Fire Station in all of Colorado Springs) & part 2 at Ute Valley Park. I was honored. It was...hands down, the most unique session I've shot to date. I had so much fun & all the fire fighters were so polite. I was enamored by all of the equipment, the drills, the uniforms...all they do to serve us in our community. They had two calls in just the short time we were at the station...so I was able to see them in action. So cool. I took way too many photos, but only a small portion are posted to highlight this beautiful family...who so clearly support & admire their husband, father & firefighter, Matt Seube. It was such a privilege Matt...thanks for contacting me & allowing me a glimpse into your life as a fireman. Here is a peek at our evening together...
