Welcoming Mr. Luke [Broomfield Newborn Photographer]

Oh, my friends. It NEVER gets old to get to photograph a family as they welcome a new member. Maybe I should rephrase that. I absolutely love photographing a family again and getting to see how they’ve grown, changed, and stretched. Sweet baby Luke is absolutely adored. Each sibling was ready to snuggle him, talk to him, and tell me all about him. Plus, having only recently added our fourth on earth, also a little boy, I admit I’m extra biased toward adoring this little guy.

Plus, the light in this house was a photographer’s dream (at least this photographer’s dream)! Lovely light, sweet baby toes, and elbow dimples? Be still my heart. Welcome to the world, little Luke.

The Hahn Family [Golden, Co Family Photographer]

First of all, can we all just pause and admire the coordination in these outfits? I always tell my clients that coordination is more coherent and pleasing than going matchy-matchy. I think I may have found a perfect and gorgeous example. (I also can’t claim any credit for helping… this is all their amazing mama, Sarah!)

I don’t think I can begin to tell you how much I love photographing this family. I adore how the kids love each other so much (not that there’s not any squabbling, because, yes, they are normal siblings) and pull it together for the sweetest photos. They encourage each other, compete, giggle at their daddy’s antics, and claim snuggles in-between shots. After years of photographing them and knowing their family, I really love how they say my name (let’s be honest, Alzbeta is a mouthful for most adults) and greet my babies (Jude was a tiny stowaway on this shoot). I always know that a shoot with them is going to be one filled with all kinds of silliness and joy, and I honestly had a hard time narrowing down photos to share, because there are so many fun ones!

Welcoming Miss Zelie

Two years ago, this amazing family welcomed me into their home to photograph Bennett’s early days. It was one of my favorite sessions that year, and this one, despite being two years later, a whole different house, and with a new baby, is slated to join the ranks of that session. The big sisters welcomed me right in and told me all about their rooms, school, and upcoming adventures. Big brother made sure I knew he was really excited about tractors, and everyone, everyone, declared their love of this beautiful baby girl.


The Wild Family [Colorado Family Photographer]

If I had to choose one word to describe this family session, it would be connection. I had to do so little directing, and it was beautiful. They came ready with giggles and snuggles from the start. Between hospital schedules, weather, and life in general, it took us a good four or five attempts to get this session done. We were up against a bit of a deadline as they were moving soon, and while the move is bringing them closer to family, it is taking them quite a ways from the mountains, and they wanted a photo session to document their time living near the Rockies. I think we succeeded. Views + joy + all the love = everything I love about this session.
