Hey! I’m two for two on Colasuonno family shoots in the past two years! Kelly said she could never get Shawn to do family photos…now he’s all about it! Maybe it’s because we always have a ton of fun and laugh a lot during the sessions. If you know the Colasuonno’s, you know they’re a blast to be around. We went on a small hike outside of Conifer, Colorado, during the golden hour and got some really nice shots. We also did a lot of funny and creative shots too… like the totally cheesy photoshopped bear photo. Well the bear looks cheesy but the Colasuonno’s really played the part! Poor Cameron! Hopefully we’ll have a three-peat next year, which will make Kelly happy…I’m sure!
Oh man…where do I start? Stazi and I go back a loooooong time. She was a high school freshman, and I was a junior. We both started playing rugby for the Littleton Harlequins the same week as each other in 2002. Then we traveled the country and world together through rugby. Then she was one of my bridesmaids. Then she had a baby girl. Then I had a baby boy four months later. She’s one of my closest friends, so I was really excited when she asked about doing a family photo session.
I met her, Ryan and Abby in Lakewood at a local park to get some photos of the family. Abby is such a sweetheart and super smart and talkative, but she did not like my camera! Not one bit! I mostly focused on candid shots versus posed shots, because she didn’t seem to notice me as much. And hey, I got a couple of really sweet photos!
My husband and Aaron have worked at the same engineering firm for the past 10 years give or take a few, and the last time I saw “the twins,” Jace and Riley, they were only two or three years old! Heidi, Aaron and the kids visited our place over Labor Day weekend and noticed my photography gear. They mentioned in passing they just talked about needing to do a family photo. I offered to do a family session, and they scheduled–although they may have been a bit nervous, as they have never done outdoor photos before.
We met up on a really pretty autumn day in Golden, Colorado, and took full advantage of the changing colors and pretty skies. We even did some adventurous trekking to get down on the creek for some fun photos near the water and along the rocks.
Sara did a fantastic job with our family photos! She’s very creative and open minded. We will treasure these photos forever.”
Carissa, Javier and Eliana were my first family shoot of the fall season, and we couldn’t have really picked a better weekend to shoot photos at a local park. Colorado isn’t really known for it’s amazing multi-colored leaves, but we do get some very vibrant yellows. Eliana is only a month and a half older than my son, and she is the calmest, sweetest little girl. My son Michael, on the other hand, screamed during our entire family photo shoot. So I couldn’t have been happier with how these photos of Eliana turned out! Carissa and Javier looked stunning as well.
