Journal

It seems like just yesterday this little booger was crawling around with his stuffed yeti, reading books with his parents, and sharing his toys with me in between clicks of my shutter.  Even though he’s already grown so much since this amazing session with this sweet family, I had to share this oldie-but-goodie nonetheless.

This little family of four has made their home in the mountains and is raising their little dude to be as hip as they are, with a turntable in his nursery and jam sessions on a regular basis- he’s definitely going to be the “cool kid” wherever he goes.

Check out some of the photos we got of little W, or as we like to call him – “DJ Wally Walls”.

One of the fun things about being a photographer is getting to be involved with so many peoples’ stories, and watching little families grow up and/or into bigger ones. I had the honor of taking Remy’s photos when I first moved to Colorado, and now get to document milestones in the life of their newest addition- little Conor. 

One thing I remember clearly about this session is how crazy it was to be working with kiddos who are so full of energy while I was very large and very pregnant. The other thing I remember is how re-affirming it was to hang out with Hilary & Mark, and see how they managed two little dudes with a smile on their face. Yay for giving me hope during a time when I was feeling very intimidated. 

I hope to connect with this sweet family again before long and see how big these kiddos have gotten!

In the mountains outside of Boulder, Colorado resides a small (but badass) family comprised of one outdoor journalist/photographer/guru in all things gear-related, a stylish and passionate editor-in-chief of a home & lifestyle magazine, and last but not least – a spunky little Lala bear who makes her parents so crazy happy.

Though I am always happy to provide direction on wardrobe, location, etc.- Jasmine & Aaron already had the whole scene on lock, which I find to be even more impressive now that I’m also a mother. All I had to do was bust out my camera and start snapping away, and this sweet little family did the rest.

Take a look at the magic we created on this day that already feels like such a long time ago now! Lala has gotten so big and independent, and I couldn’t be happier to have her as a chosen “cousin” to our little dude, Bryce.

This was the very last session I did before having my baby, at which point almost everything I did- including simple tasks like walking up a flight of stairs- was pretty uncomfortable. However, working with these two was so. damn. easy.

Not only are they incredible friends to Bobby & I, but it’s very clear that they are so happy together, and not at all afraid of being their weird selves (aka their best selves) in front of the camera. It probably doesn’t hurt that they’re both incredibly talented photographers (HOLLA >>> https://www.ali-v.co/ & http://www.iammattkennedy.com/), so they know that just letting go and being who you are is the best way to tell a love story vs. stuffy, unnatural poses.

I could go on and on about how much they’ve done for my little family, how we are so lucky to be their friends & neighbors, and how my life is definitely better with them in it, yada yada yada, but I’ll just let you see how freaking awesome and hilarious they are via a few photos from our shoot. 🙂 Enjoy!
