{Jen & Patrick--Couple's Session} Colorado Spring Lifestyle Couples Photographer

Since our e-mail correspondence was brief, I just knew to expect Jen, Patrick & their adorable dog, Nessie. (Notice her adorable pink bows in her fur.) What I didn't know is how fabulously adorable this couple was. Dressed so cute, their chemistry was magical & their dog was like icing on the cake. I couldn't believe how obedient she was. I was thrilled they chose Ute Valley Park as their location...I love this spot at sunset. I find it is a perfect representation of Colorado Springs & it's beautiful mountain backdrop right in the heart of the city. I should also note that I teased them about looking like Ken & Barbie throughout their session, because...COME ON...look at them. Ha! Enjoy a peek at their adorable, light-hearted session.

{The McClary Family} Colorado Springs Lifestyle Family Photographer

This was my first time meeting Jen, Matt & Madison...& if I'm gonna be honest, I STILL (even 8 years into owning my business) get a little bit of the "butterflies" when meeting new clients!!! I mean...that's normal, right? I love people, I love my job, but I always want good rapport, great connection, natural conversation, light-heartedness, for everyone to have fun & LOVE their photos most importantly! I don't put pressure on myself at all. Ha-ha!!! Well...the good news is...this session was ALL OF THE ABOVE.

I absolutely fell in love with 2 yr. old Maddie...her outgoing personality, strawberry blonde curls, green eyes and the way she mimics mom & dad. Oh my...so so adorable!!! I think I can speak for all of us when I say our evening spent at Ute Valley Park was nothing short of magical...from the light, to the raw emotion, to the love felt and everything in between.

Enjoy a peek at our beautiful summer evening together...

{The Moore Family} Colorado Springs Family Lifestyle Photographer

This was such a fun last minute session with new clients, The Moore Family. Whitney contacted me via phone call the morning before & asked if there was any way I could fit in a last minute photoshoot with them before her hubby deployed the next evening...I was so glad my schedule allowed for it; because it was SUCH a great session!!! I LOVED their wardrobe color choices, the setting, the lighting, the lifestyle freedom of it all...which usually comes pretty naturally when you've got a 6 month old, 18 month old & 7yr. old.;) There kids did awesome & I was able to capture the love this family CLEARLY has for one another. I hope the time passes quickly while Joshua is deployed for everyone's sake, but especially Whitney's (raising three little kiddos solo is no easy task). P.S. My favorite part about this session was listening to their incredibly strong southern accents...being from Tennessee & Kentucky...I LOVED IT!!! =) Enjoy a peek at our morning together...

{Marli--headshots} Colorado Springs Professional Headshots Photographer

Oh sweet, sweet, beautiful Marli, do you take a bad picture? The answer is NO. Ha! I love the way this darling girl's eyes just dance & sparkle when she smiles. She is truly is beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside & I just love working with her. Fortunately for me, she needs dance headshots at least once a year sometimes more & I always make room for her on my busy schedule because she is photogenic & precious. Here is a peek...

{The England Family} Colorado Springs Family Lifestyle Photographer

This was my first time meeting/photographing the England Family & it was such a pleasure! I laughed a lot during the course of this session...I loved to see the way dad & mom bantered with their teenage son (as I can relate to my almost teenage daughter)!!! Their youngest daughter had the most contagious smile & buoyant personality. I adored the way her red hair caught the light & her freckles & eyes just glowed. So sweet!!! The light that evening at Ute Valley Park was out of this world; amazing!!! The whole session went be effortlessly & I love every single image from it. Hope this sweet family visits me again!!! =) Here is a peek at our time together...
