Family Portraits in Old Colorado City

family portraits in Old Colorado City

I did these adorable family portraits in Old Colorado City of Vivian, her mom Julia and her dad Mark just before Halloween, and Vivian is such a hoot! The last time I saw Julia was when I did her maternity portraits in her eighth month, so it was fun to finally meet the little peanut that was in her belly. Oh my gosh, Vivian is a major cutie pie! I sure got some fun pictures of her. What a ham! This little monkey has got personality and energy to spare. These pictures make me smile!

A few personal photos

Last month Pat and I made a short trip to Texas to attend the Digital Wedding Forum Convention and the Imaging USA trade show in San Antonio. Afterward, we snuck away to Austin for a whirlwind visit to see my cousins and aunt. It was so nice getting to hang out with them! I did a few impromptu portraits. Here are my favorites. Enjoy!

My cousin Sheila and her beautiful family.

My cousin Omar and his beautiful family.

All the kids. Love them!

Rhea, who’s already started college.

Sierra, aged 10. She’s such a little spark :o)

Shane. I can’t believe how big he’s getting!

Lily, who’s smart as a whip.

Katara. She stole Pat’s heart! What a cutie!

Bruce, who was two months premature, and now look at him! He’s a big boy now!

This little one is special: my god daughter, Hope.

Omar and his wife, Andrea.

Sheila and her husband, David.

My aunt (and godmother), Linda. I wish I could see her more often!

Pat being attacked by wild dogs!

This is Momo.

This is Zoe.

How did we get them to sit at attention so perfectly? Bacon!

Me and my little cutie pie!

The S family

This is my friend Shery and her family. Shery owns First Glimpse Ultrasound, right next door to my studio, and she’s a great neighbor! In fact she’s been so wonderful that I did this little portrait shoot for her as a gift. Doesn’t she have a gorgeous family? Between her and Don they have six kids, including twins, and they’re all just adorable. We did these portraits on a sunny but very chilly afternoon, a couple of days after Christmas. Thanks Shery for being such an awesome neighbor!




Jakob (who has lots of energy!)

McKenzie, the oldest

Supermom Shery !!!

The baby of the family, Bryson, was a little pooped by the time we got to his individual portrait! But he gamely smiled for exactly one millisecond (after we bribed him with a promise of hot chocolate!). What a cute little guy.

Making cute for the camera.

Leo’s first Christmas!

I’m documenting Leo’s first year, including his first Christmas! These portraits were taken on December 28th. Leo’s multinational parents (American and Italian) filled their house with proud grandparents (and a great grandparent), aunties and cousins from around the world for this photo shoot, and everyone was eager to pose with the little superstar.
Leo didn’t disappoint! Here’s a small handful of personal faves from our session.
