Kira’s First Year album

Am I good about taking pictures of the lovely, custom albums I create for my clients? Yes. Am I good about sharing those pictures? No! I’m terrible, actually! I admit it! Here’s a sweet album I delivered months ago. I documented Kira’s first year from baby bump on, and it was so much fun watching her grow. Designing the album is always bittersweet, and handing it over to my clients even more so. But I know that this book will become more and more of a treasure to them over the years, as Kira starts school and grows tall and learns to drive and goes to college. Babyhood is a mere blink of an eye. I’m so glad to be able to capture these sweet moments for my clients!

My best 12 images of 2016!

Colorado Springs wedding photography

I shot my first wedding of 2016 on January 1st, and my last one is this afternoon, December 31st. It’s been an amazing year! I also did tons of portraits: newborn babies, families big and small, couples, high school seniors, and even a dog or two! Here are my best images of the year, month by month. If you’re one of my lovely clients and you don’t see your picture here, don’t feel bad. I chose my best images of the year for this list, not my best clients! (You’re ALL the best!) Not counting yesterday’s wedding and the one I’m doing later today, I delivered 6,840 wedding images and 1,181 portraits in 2016, not to mention all other jobs I did, like head shots, commercial work and fashion stuff! Needless to say, it was tough narrowing all of that down to just 12 images! Enjoy!

Kira turns one!

I’ve been documenting Miss Kira’s first year, starting when she was only a few days old, and now she’s ONE! How can this possibly be? And how could she possibly be any cuter?!? It just kills me when toddlers do that wobbly walk. Gaaaah! So cute! Kira has developed an adorable personality, she laughs, smiles and chats constantly (but when she has her “serious” face on, it melts your heart too), and she has her parents, Amy and Tyler, completely wrapped around her finger. I’ve so enjoyed photographing her over the last twelve months. Here are some of my favorites from her official One Year portrait session. Adorable!

I photographed Amy and Tyler’s wedding in August of 2010, and have been waiting patiently ever since for them to produce a baby for me to photograph 😀 My patience has finally paid off! Here’s sweet Kira on her eighth day of life. What a darling little rosebud! I can’t wait to watch her grow! Congratulations Amy and Tyler, she’s beautiful!
