I still can’t believe our little baby boy is two months old. He has his daddy’s eyes, face, charm, just about everything amazing from his dad, and mostly just my nose. But he is about the cutest thing since ever. We never really got around to newborn photos because I was just an emotional mess but no excuse…
So here is our little baby boy in our front yard rolling around in the fall leaves. Two of my most favorite things.
I have had the pleasure of taking Emily’s (my best friend from high school) pictures for several years. I have taken her engagement, her maternity, and now her sweet families pictures. Her son has the most beautiful eyes, and we always leave their shoots laughing! I can’t help but share some of my favorite pictures from our shoot.
I also love having friends that have babies. This past month, I had the opportunity of taking family photos of one of my oldest and dearest friends. She has married the love of her life and they made the most adorable baby. Plus have you ever seen a baby with a natural mohawk? It’s the cutest thing ever.
There is just something about little sisters with sweet smiles. Add some wands, bubbles, feather boas, and you get three little fairy princesses. I had the amazing opportunity of taking pictures of the daughters of some of our dearest friends. We laughed, ran, played, smelled flowers, and made up fairy names.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of seeing an old friend and her sweet little baby. He was just so cute and his eyes! HIS EYES! They are so amazing; my camera loved them and I just fell in love. I didn’t do anything to make them pop; I promise!

Every once in awhile, I have the pleasure of guest blogging over at Grace Belle Blog. If you haven’t checked them out, you should. It is a super sweet blog all about travel, beauty, living authentically, and more. This post was featured last week on their blog but I have wanted to share this is all of you too!
Maternity shoots are quickly becoming one of my favorite shoots. I feel like I say that on just about every shoot I have, but there is something extremely special about documenting a new life about to be born and the love between the family.
Chris and Jamie are sweet friends of ours who own the crossfit gym, Crossfit Helix, that we belong to. They are super fun and constantly keep us laughing and Jamie can still kick some major a$$ while being super pregnant! She puts me to shame…
Chris and Jamie already have an adorable two year old, Haddie and will be welcoming their new little one, Lillie, in just a few months. Haddie completely stole the show on these photos and she even got to see a “choo, choo” at the very end. We met in a local park and then headed to downtown Greeley to the old train station. Their shoot was filled with lots of plaid, pink shoes, trains, and lots of kisses.
Come see how much fun we had… and stay till the end. There is a bit of a surprise!
One of the best things about being a photographer is getting to meet new friends and spend sweet time with them while you capture their special moments. I had that experience this past month with Merissa and her sweet family. Merissa and I crossfit together at the same gym and while, we never officially really meet, she saw some of my photos and got in touch with me so I could take their family photos.
We meet in downtown Greeley where there is some really neat graffiti and some amazing backdrops for photos. I am a sucker for brick, concrete, and metal doors so it was a match made in urban heaven.
My photography business is not large, it isn’t super fancy, it isn’t really my livelihood. What it is though, is something near and dear to my heart. Through my lens, I have been blessed with the opportunity of meeting some amazing new faces, spending time with some of my best friends, and through it all, capturing sweet moments that will last.
This past month, I was asked to donate a session for a cause that is extremely important to me. While preparing for the silent auction, I put together a slideshow of some of my favorite photos. Some are old, some are new, but they are all extremely special to me.
These are just few of those smiling faces. Take a peek, you may be in one :)!
