What to Wear for Holiday Minis


Many of you have been asking what clothing choices would look best in our Winter Wonderland Holiday Mini Session set… So we figured that the easiest way to tell you what looks good is to show you!

Here are a few cuties from this past weekend’s mini sessions — hopefully it will give you an idea of what works!

Are you reading this and hearing about our holiday minis for the first time?? Don’t fret!  There is still plenty of room in December, and select spots left in November… But don’t wait to call, or the only spot we will have left will surly be during nap time…

We’re having so much fun playing in our Winter Wonderland set, and love the reactions of the kids… Come join the fun!!

Holiday Minis Are Off to a Great Start


This weekend is bringing the dreaded snowy winter our way… But here in our photo studio, winter weather is MUCH more fun!  This year’s Winter Wonderland Holiday Mini Session set comes complete with an amazing snowy floor for the kids to sit it, play with & yes, even toss around– the difference?  The white stuff in here is room temperature, making it much more fun!  Tomorrow is our first of many CRAZY packed days of Holiday Mini Sessions, but we got going yesterday, and the results are great.  Check out some of the fun and adorable shots we got of this family as we kicked off the 2015 Holiday Mini Session madness!!  We still have spots left, so give us a call to book your photo shoot!

Bramber’s Aspen Wedding


Amber and Brandon’s wedding has been 10 years in the making, whether they realized it, admitted it, or not… But the culmination of their friendship and love story produced one of the most emotional, fun, and picturesque weddings imaginable.  It seemed to be the perfect trifecta… stunning couple, perfect weather, and… Aspen in October.  Needless to say, Gabriella and I took a lot (a LOT) of photos over this past weekend!  It will take some time to go through them all, but I couldn’t wait to share a few of our favorite shots… So here is a taste of the amazing images we had the privilege to capture for Brandon and Amber at their fabulous Aspen Wedding.D41_7170D41_7640D41_8884D42_0491D42_0720D42_0930D41_8999D41_9183

Taking the Photo is Only Half the Job


We know that when you make the decision to invest in your family photography it means a lot to you… we take that seriously.  But what are we doing?  Why is it an “investment” at all, when you could so easily hand a friend your iPhone on a pretty day and get the “same thing” for a simple thank you or a glass of wine as payment?  The same reason we discuss the session before hand, discuss your plans, wants/needs & preferences during & after the session, and spend the days or weeks following your order processing your images… Because the actual act of capturing the image is only the beginning.  We want the images… the final product… to perfectly fit into your life.  You didn’t hire us to simply post to Facebook and flip through images on your phone.  You wanted something more, and that’s what we continually strive to deliver.  While the pictures are of your children… the images themselves are our babies.  We want them heading out into the world looking their best, performing to their potential, and impressing everyone they come in contact with.  In order to achieve that, we spend hours… (yes, hours!) retouching, tweaking, and finishing each photo until they are each just right.  Presenting them as a grouping? Then it’s up to us to make sure that the sizing, cropping, color and contrast blends seamlessly from piece to piece.  We all absolutely adore what we get to do… and we take it seriously.  And we take it seriously because we know it is important to you.

These photos of this crew of brothers is an example of how the image right out of the camera wasn’t the finished product.  Dressed in sweaters, vests, and baby suspenders, how could I not bring out an old-world feel to the images??  I don’t know if the boys’ mom will select these images, or even this finishing… but to me, these images are all grown up, and ready for the world.
