The Campbell Family

urban portrait session//downtown Denver

I met the Campbells last year when they reached out to schedule a family session with me - and boy I'm glad they did! This family is as delightful as they are beautiful. When Ashley emailed me again this year for an updated photo session, it was a no-brainer! This time our session was more focused on Lawson and Caroline, which was a blast! These two kids are smart, fun, and they were actually kind of bummed when we were finished taking photos. You might notice the abundance of 'twirling' photos below. This is because A.) Caroline had a new dress and was excited to twirl, and B.) she's really good at twirling, and the photos were so adorable that I couldn't just pick a couple to share. It wouldn't be fair to keep that much cutesness

You can view their session from last year here, which I am equally in love with. I can't believe how much taller they both got in just one year!

Brooke & Garrett: The Dirty Hippie Duo

I've known Brooke for a long time now. Around six years, in fact! For someone who moved every two years while growing up, six years is a very long time. The longer I know Brooke, the more I love her, and the more determined I am to make her be my friend forever. 

Brooke likes long walks, travel, and chocolate. We both love samples at Whole Foods, which is basically the foundation of our friendship.

Not too long ago Brooke married Garrett. Garrett is similarly awesome. He's a musician and a rock climber and a long distance trail runner. He's as chill as they come, man. They like to go on adventures together, and recently they set out on a pretty big one. 

These two dirty hippies bought a Sprinter van and built it out to become their new home on the road. For the foreseeable future they'll be living that road trip life, getting lost, climbing rocks, taking in our national parks, and enjoying the freedom of not being tethered to any one place. 

Below are some portraits of these two beautiful, crazy kids on their way out of Denver. 

Keep in touch, you two! Don't forget to shower every once in a while.

 

Kelly, Scott, & Cody

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Janhunen-Marchand family at Chatfield Farms - a part of the Denver Botanic Gardens. It was my first chance to shoot at this beautiful 700 acre working farm, and I hope it won't be my last! That said, this family would have looked good anywhere! It was a blast to hang out with them, and to watch them interact with each other. That's the best part of family photos; the interactions, and sweet unplanned moments that sometimes I'm quick enough to capture.
