It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Can you even read that without singing it?! Since it is finally December, we have full permission to blast those Christmas classics and put up the tree. Although no shame if you’ve already done that! These 15 families were certainly ready to kick off this holiday season […]

Mini Session

South Mesa Flatirons Fall Mini Sessions | Boulder CO

Do you remember as a kid how slooooow time would go? Being told to wait even one minute was equivalent to waiting for eternity. I have found that the older I get, the faster time goes. Even when I try to “cherish every second”, “be present” and “live in the moment”, I still can’t figure […]

Lauren’s Maternity Session in Chautauqua Park and Lost Gulch Overlook

For many of us, high school is a time in our lives where friendships are very important to us. Some of our strongest relationships are formed around this time, but as the years go on it can become difficult to maintain those connections. However, if we put in the time and effort, those long-time friendships […]

In-home Colorado Newborn Session | The Schmid Family

Did you know that newborns typically sleep 14-17 hours over a 24-hour period according to the National Sleep Foundation? However, some newborns may sleep up to 18-19 hours, only waking every couple of hours to eat. As a newborn photographer, this makes my job a lot easier! A sleepy infant is easy to photograph. This […]

Morning Fall Minis | Sandstone Ranch | Longmont CO

When you think of fall as a child, what do you think of? For me, growing up in Maine has made me appreciate the beauty that can be found in autumn just before winter sets in. Colorado’s bright yellows and changing colors during this season takes me back to my childhood growing up in New […]

Mini Session

Golden Ponds Fall Mini Sessions in Longmont Colorado

Golden Ponds fall mini sessions seem to be a client favorite. I can definitely see why. Between the stunning golden trees, beautiful ponds, and the faint view of the mountains range it’s ideal. It simply provides a variety in backdrops, and with this variation there is bound to be something for everyone. Golden Ponds Fall […]

Boulder Colorado Fall Mini Sessions at South Mesa Trailhead

Boulder Colorado Fall Mini Sessions When I think of fall, I think of warm drinks, fun layered clothing, hot soup, and of course—changing leaves. There truly is nothing like the bright, vivid yellow of the aspen trees against mountainous backdrops. That is why I love Colorado Fall Mini Sessions so much! And since it is […]

Rocky Mountain National Park Maternity Session at Sprague Lake and Moraine Park | The Riley Family

This beautiful maternity session at Sprague Lake and Moraine Park was a joy to capture. When Christine reached out to me about working with them, I was elated because I personally know this couple.

This is personally my favorite place in the whole park, so I was excited to do a shoot here. ROCKY MOUNTAIN […]

Buckingham Park Cake Smash Session Boulder, CO

Not everyone wakes up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but Nico sure did! This early Buckingham Park cake smash session was momentous because it captured a very special milestone for the Agnello family. While commemorating Nico’s first year of life, it also marks an end to the baby stage. That is why I didn’t want to miss […]
