Maternity portraits :: Eboni + Michael

I did Eboni’s high school senior portraits about nine years ago, and we’ve stayed in touch since then via Facebook. I was over the moon when she contacted me to do maternity portraits for her and her husband, Michael. I don’t know who’s more excited about this baby, me or them! We did a few poses at my studio, then headed to Ute Valley Park for the rest. Look how adorable they are! They’re going to have such a beautiful baby!

Engagement portraits at Mueller State Park :: Samantha + Joe

Mueller State Park engagement portraits

These Mueller State Park engagement portraits were a special treat for me to do. Samantha is a long time client and I’m very fond of her. I’ve been photographing her since she was a teenager! Over the years I’ve documented quite a few milestones in Samantha’s and her family’s lives, but I’m extra excited about this one: she’s engaged to a great guy! Their wedding is scheduled for next summer and I can’t wait! In October I spent a glorious, golden afternoon with Joe, Samantha and her daughter Izzy at beautiful Mueller State Park, taking their engagement portraits and a few family portraits to boot.

As far as big vistas go, it doesn’t get much more breathtaking than Mueller State Park. It’s one of my favorite places to visit, especially in October. I love this time of year and I love how these special portraits came out. I can’t wait for Samantha and Joe’s wedding at Mount Princeton Hot Springs. It’s going to be amazing!

Nicy’s 40th birthday portraits

I got really behind in sharing photos over the summer and fall, and some great shots got neglected. Case in point: Nicy’s 40th birthday photo shoot, which definitely deserves to be seen! Sooooo, better late than never, please enjoy these fun portraits¬† Nicy is a wonderfully evolved and positive human and I was so glad to capture some of her joie de vivre in pictures. Instead of lamenting turning 40, she celebrated it and I love that! It was truly a pleasure photographing this gorgeous, uplifting woman!

Hot couple alert! Shery and Ken get all dressed up every year for a fancy annual event held by his employer. This year they decided to document their gorgeousness in a series of portraits at the Mining Exchange before heading off to the party. Wowza! Just look at them! They made my job easy!

Introducing Parker Rose!

Colorado Springs newborn photography

Bump to Bundle of Love clients Ashley and Ryan had their baby, and she is the cutest little peanut you’ve ever seen! Parker Rose was a little premature, so she only weighed a little over four pounds when she made her debut. She’s one of the tiniest babies I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing. But Parker’s a little fighter, and was out of the NICU and home with mom and dad within just a few days. We did these pictures last week, when she was seven days old. So adorably sweet! Congratulations Ashley and Ryan! She’s beautiful!
