Back to photographing one of my favorite family’s newest addition, their fourth son, Shane. Who knew that a decade ago I’d still be photographing the Hickman children for their one year milestones! I run a special package that captures the first year of baby’s life starting with newborn photos in the first month after baby’s arrival. We then meet up again every three months finishing with the one year birthday celebration and cake smash for baby. Darcy and Ryan have been through these sessions with each of their children! And now with us being on our fourth child not only are the other kids old pros at having their photograph taken, but we’re now struggling just a little bit to come up with locations for outdoor photo-shoots! I still find love capturing this family and can’t believe we’ve been taking photos for as long as we have! Enjoy some baby squishes! It goes by in a blink of an eye!
Nothing is more precious than newborn babies! And I especially love getting to photography past wedding clients when they venture into parenthood. Jerod & Erin were married just last year so they wasted no time in starting their family. This adorable little peanut was a little over the newborn stage at about two months when we photographed her making it a little more difficult to get those adorable sleeping baby photos, but we tried our best! She’s a cutie pie even when she’s wide awake and I love, love, love the matching mommy and me outfits!
In case you didn’t know we have moved into a full on studio space in Arvada this Summer. After 20 years of hauling my backdrops, lights, props and more to people’s homes it was time to finally settle down at a location that would make it easier for me to photograph my clients. This allows me to set-up before the subjects arrive, have access to all of my backdrops and props at a moments notice and just make the whole experience easier for everyone. We are sharing a space with another vendor: Amazing Weddings & Ceremonies, who provide wedding ceremony and officiating services as well as their own ministry. So far it has been a great working partnership! I will still be doing a lot of location photo-shoots, but this also gives me the opportunity to have an indoor back-up plan, offer more affordable studio sessions for things like headshots, newborns and more!
Thanks again to Erin, Jerod and Miss Willow for being my first clients in the studio and looking forward to many more years to come photographing your growing family!
Here’s an in home newborn session I did before Thanksgiving…. this sweet little guy took a while to fall asleep for us… Sometimes come with the territory…. We tried just about everything, extra feedings, white noise, swaddling and even a car ride! Yes, dad took him for a ride around the block! Which was a first for me, typically all of my little tricks work to make baby sleepy, but this time around he was making us work for it. But I think it was worth it in the end what an adorable little guy! Congrats again to the Radcliffe family on your new addition!
Don’t you just love Spring? And Spring babies are the best! Fresh and new to the world and super adorable! This young man has three older siblings to help him on his way. I’m so excited to share images from Cole’s newborn portrait shoot! What a cutie!
Just some adorable photos from the newborn session with one of my favorite families to photograph! Welcome to the world baby, Cole… Darcy will have her hands full with three lovable and I’m sure very energetic boys! Looking forward to our year long / every three month sessions to document the growth of this precious baby’s first year! Stay tuned for more photos to come!
Just received this baby announcement in the mail from a family that I photographed this Spring! I always love it when the family send me their photo announcement, holiday card, etc. with the photos I took on it. It makes my heart happy to see they are just excited about their images as I am!
Here is another one of my favorite families that I have been photographing for quite a while! I started with their engagement portraits, then their wedding and now through four children! The time has flown by because it feels like I just did their wedding! Jillian informed me that this baby is their last one (but who knows they make adorable children) so this might be my last newborn session with them! What a cute little monkey to welcome into this world! Here’s to many more years of fun, cute family photos!
So my family and I took a trip down to Gunnison, Colorado this weekend to see a good friend of ours graduate from college! It was a great excuse to get out of town, see some friends, and try out our new pop-up camper! Since we work from home one of the fun things we like to do is to get out and enjoy nature on our days off and this gave us the perfect opportunity before our crazy busy Summer season! It was great seeing Scotty “Big Guns” finally get his diploma! I won’t mention his age, but he took the long route to getting it and we’re so happy for him and the opportunities this will bring for his family! Way to go Scott!
Also this became somewhat of a working vacation for me as well as the Myhr’s next door neighbors The Anderson’s took advantage of the Mother’s Day special I was running and had me do portraits of their family along with their newborn baby! Super adorable baby and awesome family… who also helped us in the search for our dog that got lost the day of graduation as well! Long story made short Guinness decided that he needed to check out the neighborhood, but luckily game back and was sitting on the back porch of the Myhr’s home the next morning before we had to leave! Whew! So enjoy some of my favorite images from their session below! And congrats to both families!
