I shoot a lot of weddings for a local studio which has been fantastic for the experience but the downside is not being able to get to know the brides and grooms very well prior to their wedding. However, last month, I was asked to shoot the engagement session as well as the wedding (which, by the way, is tomorrow). Laura + Tyler were so easy to work with as they seemed immediately comfortable in front of the camera which is perhaps because they are so comfortable just being with each other.

Love this sassy look that Laura gave Tyler.

Awww, so sweet.

How gorgeous are they!

Saving the best for last… Tyler, you’re looking rather dreamy here and, Laura, could you be any more in love?

It was wonderful getting to know Laura + Tyler and I can’t wait to see how fabulous they look tomorrow at their Columbine Unity Church wedding and Omni Interlocken Hotel reception.

Michelle is another wedding photographer with whom I have been privileged to work and I was soooo excited for her when she told me last fall that she was expecting because I know what an amazing feeling it is to have a baby (two in my case!) growing inside. She asked me in May (I know! I’m hopelessly behind but trying my best to catch up.) to photograph her in her final weeks. Of course, I was delighted! We walked from her house over to Golden Ponds in Longmont on a sunny Sunday morning where I cruelly made her sit on the nearby train tracks…

We didn’t stay there long though. This one I looooove. Michelle, you are fierce!

Yep, that’s a baby allright.

Her husband, Tom, was willing to be a hand model for a few photos.

Back at her house, Michelle got comfortable on the velvety goodness that is her deep purple comforter.

Work it!

Don’t look now but you’re glowing, Michelle!

In June, Michelle gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Ruby. Such sweetness! I’m excited to photograph mother and daughter together soon.

Well, hello there!

So, I’ve been a bit of a slacker when it comes to blogging and I’m determined to change that. Call it my new second-half-year resolution. 🙂 And what better way to kick it off then with the beautiful Goodson family.

Lisa contacted me in the early spring after she found out who took the photos on another friend’s Christmas card (me!). And it was my absolute pleasure to meet Lisa, John, and their adorable boys when I showed up at their house in May. This family was so easy and comfortable in front of the camera that I ended up spending twice as long as I normally would. I couldn’t believe that Tyler (3) and Jack (1) never got fussy or uncooperative once. I’d like to think that I helped create the relaxed atmosphere of our shoot. 😉

And now on to the photos!

The blue eyes were just killing me.

Tyler shows so much love for his little brother.

This is one typically active Boulder family.

From their house, we moved down to a park that was overrun with dandelions.

John showed Tyler how to make a dandelion necklace for his mom. Too sweet! And you can see where the gorgeous blue eyes come from…


And now for a little Lisa + John alone time. Boy, I would’ve loved to do their wedding!

Doesn’t this last photo just scream SUMMER!?

Thank you to all the Goodsons for inviting me into your home. Stay cool.
