Mila | Newborn | Larkspur Colorado | Studio | 2017

     Sweet Mila came to see me when she was 6 weeks old! Usually as a newborn photographer, older newborn babies make us nervous but sweet Mila did an amazing job in front of my camera. She loved knowing where I was and what I was doing. She looked right into my lens and even gave a couple of huge smiles! It was such a fun time! 
     Newborn photography is about capturing those fleeting moments right at the beginning of life. I can't tell you how many times, myself included, I hear how quickly time flies in the beginning. It could be that as a new parent we are so sleep deprived that we time travel in day to day life. Babies are so much work and so helpless and we are their lifelines and that is an amazing thing but also a stressful thing. I remember times just praying for my kids to just go to sleep when they were babies. To just give me more than 5 hours of sleep that night. Now my kids are 5 and 6 years old and sleeping in their own rooms, brushing their own teeth and being little people.
      Somedays I would pay to go back to the days of them in diapers, being swaddled and just wanting to sleep in my arms. We wish away time yet we want it to slow down. That is why you book a newborn photographer. That is why you invest money in a photographer that knows the value of their work and what their work stands for, for years to come. 
     Mila wasn't the youngest newborn I have photographed but it didn't matter to me. All that matters is that we stopped time, if only for a couple of hours in my studio, but her family will always have these and will always be able to go back to this day. 

Beaty Family | Denver Colorado | 2017

     This session was so so so much fun! I have been photographing these amazing people for a couple of years now and every time I leave wishing I could come home with them and just hang out and be apart of their family. Is that creepy? :-) A little. But they are just so much fun!
     Every year we find a new spot for their family pictures and this year we went with the art murals in downtown Denver. This spot is one of my favorites simply because its so colorful and its has endless art by some amazing artists! I love capturing a little bit more of a natural mood with this location...letting people just interact with each other. This is especially true with this session, we let Zander and Sawyer just be kids and I think it truly captured their personalities and the core of this family. Zander will be going into first grade this upcoming school year and I am in awe how big he has gotten! Then there is sweet Sawyer who looks just like her beautiful mama and has spunk and sass to keep up with her older brother. 
     Its always an honor to capture memories for this family and be apart of their lives and I can't wait to keep watching them grow up literally right in front of my lens.
