Indoor Colorado Newborn Session | Boulder, CO

Everything about this indoor Colorado newborn session was a dream. The Hengemuhle family welcomed me right into their aesthetically pleasing home. Their woodland nursery made for a perfect photo shoot setting, and we also utilized other well-lit places in the house. Their little boy, just five weeks old at the time, was a perfect angel […]

Boulder Outdoor Family Session | Gann Family

One of my favorite things about shooting in this location is that it is pretty all year round. This session was taken in late December and yet we have a variety of landscapes and colors. That combined with the perfect lighting gives these winter photos a beautiful glow. We are lucky to have random gorgeous […]

Boulder Flatiron Fall Minis | Northern Colorado

There is a certain kind of rush or hurry that seems to happen this time of year right before the holiday season. Do you feel that way? My to-do list seems to grow longer as the days grow shorter. As a photographer, this time of year is considered to be my busy season. Lots of […]

Mini Session

Outdoor Fall Mini Sessions | South Mesa Trailhead, Boulder, CO

I recently saw a quote that made me pause, it said, “Fall is proof that change is beautiful.” This season does bring a lot of change. It marks the end of summer and closes the book on that chapter; and it also reminds us that the busy holiday season is right around the corner. It’s […]

They are opportunities to […]

Mehra Outdoor Family Session | South Mesa Trailhead in Boulder, CO

Kids are funny. As a family photographer, I have the privilege of capturing hundreds of families a year. I never quite know how the kids are going to act when put in front of a camera. (I bet the parents have this same thought as well!) A lot can ride on their mood, if they […]
