The Wilson’s – 1/2/16

Rachel is another great person I’ve known for a long time through my husband’s rugby team. She is thoughtful, caring, kind, and has a huge heart. She, her son Andrew, her man Miguel, and his son Michael all met me in Thornton to get some family photos for the holiday season. Can you believe the breathtaking view? I’ve lived in Colorado my whole life but never really appreciated the Rockies, because I lived at the base (we were so close to the mountains that we couldn’t see them!). I loved that they coordinated their outfits with flannel shirts, cuffed jeans, and canvas shoes. They looked so awesome! I think my favorite shot is one that I didn’t intend to shoot or use. As I was managing the camera to shoot into the sun, I captured the awesome black and white image of everyone looking down or away, except for Michael–who is looking me dead on. I don’t know what it is about this photo, but it’s captivating.

Sara has a great eye & is a wonderful creative collaborator! She understood what we wanted from our photo session and made good suggestions in addition to the shots based on our ideas. We love what she captured!” – Rachel Wilson

The Agre’s – 12/31/15

I’ve known the Agre’s going on eight years now. Alex played rugby with my husband John “Zilla” for the Denver Highlanders, and I’m pretty sure I played against Wendi at some point when she played for the Colorado Springs SheWolves and I played for the Harlequin Olde Girls. They have three pretty cool kids: Max, Samantha, and Jackson. We shot these photos on New Years Eve, and it was FREEZING! I think it was only 18 degrees, so we had to make our outdoor shoot as quick as possible. When we went inside to warm up, I caught one photo of the kids on the sofa. This particular photo makes me smile every time I see it, because it shows the sheer joy and enthusiasm all kids are born with. I wish that we could keep this joy intact as we age!

Mason – 12/28/15

This is the second shoot of Mason that I have done so far. It’s amazing how fast babies grow from day to day, week to week, and month to month. Unfortunately he had just received some shots the day before, so he wasn’t feeling too hot. We decided to only do a half-hour session, and we’ll finish up with the second half-hour soon. But even for only shooting for 30 minutes, we got some nice shots of him — even one of Mason full-blown crying!
