Mother Daughter Shoot at the Denver Botanic Gardens

I have been photographing Rory since she was a baby.  When my friend Shauna contacted me about a Mother Daughter shoot she mentioned Rory lost a tooth and had just turned five! Rory loves flowers so we decided to do the shoot at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Taking time to capture life as it is at 5 months or 5 years  is so important to me. We all get busy in life and before we know it moments have passed. I love that Shauna made it a priority to schedule family portraits this spring. In days, months, and years from now these photos, that capture the closeness and love of a little girl and her mama, will provide laughter, comfort, and joy.  Enjoy this beautiful, dreamy, timeless, Mother Daughter Session. Happy Mother’s Day!

Southall Family

This beautiful family was so fun to photograph. They interact like close friends and that is special to see and photograph. They have a daughter finishing her senior year and a son in Kindergarten, what an adventure!

Ashley and Kalif

Ashley and Kalif are a couple who really enjoy parenthood. They adore their baby and she is equally enamored with them. Their baby is growing fast and this shoot captured her eating solids (an apple!) crawling like crazy, looking in the mirror and learning how to walk. Capturing and remembering these moments is so important because they pass so quickly. This family is so full of love and I felt so honored to have documented it.

Baby Charles

I photographed baby Charles with his parents at six months old. I also had the honor of photographing his first day eating solid foods! woo hoo for bananas! I loved capturing this young family in their real life. They had just moved and I felt honored to have documented them in their new home. Charles is constantly on the go and loves exploring the world. Jessica and Chuck are amazing to watch guide and love their little boy. Happy six months Charles, what a fun and exciting half -a-year.

Alison and her little ones

My best friend Alison is in town from Montana and I got to hangout with her little ones and meet her baby for the first time! I loved capturing her lively family in a natural, unrushed and candid way. I was just in awe of her patience, love and the ease in which she parents. It almost seems, and this may sound sappy, that she was made to be a Mother.  Her experience, and I think glimpses of it are captured through the lens,  is all at once: complicated, new, routine, hectic, funny, peaceful, inspiring, tiring and fun. What a thing, to be a Mom to two beautiful kids.

A Southern Wedding Shower

Kristol’s wedding shower was an absolute joy to photograph. She was surrounded by so much love and laughter. Everyone wore a beautiful hat and enjoyed sweet tea, southern cuisine and shower games. I  loved that everyone there seemed like a big family, it was beautiful to see and beautiful to capture. What a perfect summer evening with good friends, good food and the celebration of a wedding to come.

Mother Daughter Shoot: Eno and her darling Selah

My beautiful friend Eno brings a smile to your face when you see her, she is just one of those people that makes everything more fun. Her daughter Selah shines just as bright as her Mother. I wanted to hang out with them for the whole day, go get ice cream and then hit up Toys R Us.  Everywhere we went on this urban mother daughter  shoot people were stopping us to compliment Selah on her  general adorable-ness. She even picked her own outfit! I loved capturing the love and laughter between Eno and her daughter, it was beautiful and honest, just like these images. Enjoy a small glimpse of our urban Denver Mother Daughter shoot.
