Colorado Springs Family Photographer - Josh, Leslie and Hannah

Oh my goodness...its fall!  Yes, I love the colors, the change in temps...the ability to enjoy my fall wardrobe...oh, and the fact that it looks amazing to photograph.  Yes, this sweet family rocked their fall session.  The leaves were just hinting at changing but it was enough to have a beautiful backdrop of golden yellow and orange. 

Hannah, wow, she is beautiful.  Her skin is so smooth and her big blue eyes...look out Josh.  Give her a few years and the boys will start coming around.   And at just about 5 months she's all ready sporting an adorable jacket and dress, just made me want to pick her up and squeeze her.  I so enjoy the fact that I got to hold her at just a week old and now watch her grow.  Beautiful in each phase and to see her smile and laugh at her parents...precious and sweet.  Josh and Leslie, completely smitten and in love with their sweet baby girl...enjoyed watching the two of them laugh and play with Hannah! 

Here are a few of our pics from that sweet morning...

The conclusion to an apple orchard engagement session...

An apple orchard, a sweet sunset and a happy in love couple...who just so happens to be BEAUTIFUL...makes for an unbelievable session.  Then you throw in the sentiment...the emotion for me to be able to capture it...ah, makes it one of my favorites.    

  I might have been paying more attention to watching how Kevin was with Sarah.  You could say I'm touch protective with my friends.  And I  might have grilled him a bit on the drive over.  Yes, this could have happend.  The good news is Kevin,  really is an awesome man, who so loves Sarah.  And he def. passed the friend test.  ;p 

In watching Sarah, there was happiness and sense of peace with Kevin.  This is where I knew, yes, knew he was the perfect man for her.   The way they look at each other...sweet love.  That's how I would describe them.  You two are beautiful in the way you and just enjoy the moments. 

So looking forward to working with kreatid to create some beautiful and unique moments for this wedding, this couple.  Not just because they are ridiculously easy to look at but because of how much I love them.  How important they are to me and my family. 

I want to give a big shout out to Tony and Hope...your place is beautiful!  The apple orchards can be found at the Happy Apple Farm in Penrose, CO. They were unbelievably accommodating and sweet to work with. Thank you so much!

Here are just a few pics from this absolutely gorgeous you guys!  :)

Colorado Springs Newborn Photographer - Brody, 8 days new

Sweet Brody.   An amazing relaxed little boy with an absolute angelic little face.  He was awake for the first hour but so relaxed.  I couldn't stop looking at him.  And yes, he might be my nephew but I think he is beautiful. 

Watching my sister in law with him...she takes to motherhood like she was meant for it.  So sweet and in love with Brody.  And Tim, so helpful and completely wrapped up in Jess and Brody...they are seriously a beautiful family.  Loved watching them an snuggling with their new son.

Colorado Springs Family Photographer - The "H" family

This family, is absolutely precious to me.  Kris and Mike...I met them about 10 years ago, we invited them over to dinner and I showed her my massive wedding book.  Yes, first time meeting them and I'm like here look at my wedding book.  Pretty cool of me.  ;p  But then, we got invited to their wedding and from there became Friday night date nights with K and M.   Kris can make me laugh till tears stream down my face...and then when she's with her hubby...its non stop laughter.  They are extremely witty and charming people to be around.  But not only are they our family's close friends because of their happiness...but they are there for us through the hard moments.  The challenging and difficult moments of life.  They dig in and help no questions asked, no judgements made...just simply beautiful to me because of there value on life and their value on friendship.
Oh, but to talk about their babies...Hayley and Piper.  I just smile and want to squeeze them every time I see them.  Beautiful and sweet her sense of humor and her charming and sweet personality.  My kiddos ADORE her.  Piper, she just makes me laugh.  Her big toothless grin, her eyes that completely sparkle when Kris looks at her.  Or her laugh when Mike throws her up in the air...

So to say this session was special to me, that this family is really just an extension from mine...ah, doesn't quite describe how much I love them.  Enjoy just a few pics from that sweet morning...

Colorado Springs Child Photographer - Warren

Warren, a little shy with me in the beginning.  But once he realized I was all about play...okay, so I might have snapped a few photos playing the classic peek a boo...but it worked.  His little eyes would just sparkle and his smile.  Loved him...and the curious and fun boy he is.  Enjoy a few of our pics from that morning!

Colorado Springs Family Photographer - Mary, Alan, Ethan and Ben

Soft morning beautiful.  Light is something I particularly look for in my sessions.  I am always paying attention to how it looks on my clients.  And its usually the first thing that I set up as far as timing for each client.  And for this sweet family, I really felt it created that sweet and soft look that I love to use.  

But in particular, I loved the way the two boys, Ethan and Ben made this session into an adventure.  Running, exploring...climbing at one point.  And the reactions from their parents...perfect.  Loved how laid back they were and how their happiness was so contagious.  This session was beautiful to me because of this sweet family.  I enjoyed laughing and working with them!  Enjoy a few of our photos from that morning.
