Maternity Session | Mountain Adventure | Colorado

We love a good adventure.  Even if we didn't plan for it.  Sometimes it's just meant to be that the best laid plans don't work out. 

This maternity session was suppose to happen in Silverthorne...
 until everyone became stuck in traffic, and it became very apparent that no one was not going to make it to Silverthorne before the sun set.

So after some frantic phone messages, everyone decided to just exit I-70 at the nearest exit...randomly...no idea what the area was like.

And it ended up being the most fun, carefree mountain session with a gorgeous view and fall colors.
Thank goodness for such adventurous parents to be!

It was a perfect end to a crazy beginning.
We are absolutely in love with how all the photos turned out!

7 Month Session | Twins | Baby Plan | Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Liam and Landon are 7 months old!  And wow they have grown since their newborn photos!  We absolutely adore getting to see them as they change throughout the year!  And at this age they made the perfect little models since they can sit up, but not yet crawl away.  So funny!  All parents can appreciate that!  We will be chasing them at their next session, and we can't wait for those giggles as we do! 
 As I was selecting photos to blog for this session, I kept thinking how many of them would be so great up on a wall!  I love when I come down my stairs and catch a glimpse at our family photos.  I pause so many times just to take in those images and my heart melts as those memories flood back in.

We love when our families get to enjoy their photos on their walls!  It makes us happy to bring the same kind of joy I get as I pause to take in my photos into their homes.  And I am head over heels in love with how bloom frames so perfectly showcase photos!  They are classy, yet fun, and an awesome way to really make your photos stand out in your home.

Cary Grant twin frame in Tahitian Sky & Midnight Blue...so fun with these colors!

Family Fall Mini Sessions | Fly'n B Park | Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Do you have a fall bucket list?! 

My list includes indulge in a few Pumpkin Spice Lattes, wear cozy scarves and tall boots, jump in piles of leaves, visit a pumpkin patch, make a pumpkin pie, watch football, devour a caramel apple, and get family photos!  

The timing is perfect for photos!  It's gorgeous outside!  Photos are the perfect excuse to make time for that walk in the park.  And they are perfect for holiday cards and gifts!

Mountain Mini Sessions | Silverthorne, Colorado

We love the adventure of being in the mountains!  We feel more alive when we are up there.  Exploring a mountain trail gets in our blood, and we daydream about our next rustic mountain adventure until we are back up there!
Our Mountain Mini Sessions gave us that same mountain thrill, and we had to share a few sneak peeks!  The view was absolutely gorgeous!


Family Fall Mini Sessions | Fly'n B Park | Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Whimsical Mini Sessions | Highlands Ranch, Colorado

There is something so enchanting about lush, green trees,  a wooden bridge to hang your feet over and mossy rocks to climb on.
These photos take us back to the magic of childhood.

A time when we would giggle over silly stories with our little sister...
A time when a lacy parasol, a dress with ruffles, and a crown of flowers made us a princess...
and fairies lived hidden in the woodlands...
A time when a stick became a fishing pole and water under a bridge meant adventure!
A magical time of wonder and awe, when fairy tales are real and the world is full of our dreams.

I can't believe she's 3 now! - Personal Post!

Happy Birthday Elise!

I hear parents claim all the time I can't believe he/she is X age now.... well honestly I can't believe we've hit 3 years old already!  This spunky, busy, stubborn, outspoken little girl is 3!



She is my mini me in lots of ways, she watches and learns very quick,

1) she has to have her morning "coffee" aka milk

2) she pays attention to small little random details everywhere we go

3) home depot & starbucks are two of her favorite places

4) she has dance parties in the living room and LOVES music, her favorite song right now is "honey bridge" you know like 'london bridge' but she modified the lyrics

5) she likes Canon camera's and a 5D MKII is her camera, (she takes pretty good photos)

6) she is excellent at directing people and telling everyone what to do




Awww how I love this girl! She is my world.

Family Fall Session | Cottonwood Park | Parker, Colorado

Isn't this a gorgeous family?!
 
I just love family fall photos.  They mark the passage of another year.  They document the growth of our little ones...or not so little ones.  They capture the heart and soul of family and record our journey.  So even though the days, weeks, months, and years go by...we can hold onto these moments forever.

And they do it in one of the most beautiful times of the year!
Like when the leaves turned gold in Cottonwood Park last year!  Be still my fall loving heart!

I can't wait to see what this year's secret location and vibrant colors will have in store for us!
