Zach – 8/18/17

Would you believe Zach and his mom traveled all the way to Denver from Pittsburgh to have his senior photos done? Well…it’s partly true. Zach is my youngest cousin and is now in his senior year of high school. He and my aunt flew out to Colorado to visit the Colorado School of Mines and CU Boulder (two schools he’s interested in attending). While they were here, they asked if I’d be interested in shooting his senior photos. I, of course, accepted. We decided to hit the trails in beautiful Red Rocks at 6 a.m. to shoot during the golden hour!

We all love the way his senior photos turned out, and I would bet money that no one else in his school will have Red Rocks in their senior photo backdrops!

Ashlyn – 8/12/17

Wow! I remember when my friend Bree‘s talked about her little niece Ashlyn being born! I never thought way back then that I’d be shooting Ashlyn’s senior photos 17 years later! After perusing my blog posts for cool locations, Ashlyn decided that City Park would be the perfect place for her senior photo backdrop.

Her pretty pink dress even complemented the color scheme of the pavilion! She looked so great, and I was very pleased with how her photos turned out during our golden hour shoot.

I wish her the best of luck in her last year of high school at Chatfield Senior High!

The Dellere-MacNab Wedding – 8/5/17

Mike and Colleen have been an item practically since my husband and I have been together. Mike and John both played for the Denver Highlanders Rugby Football Club, and Colleen and I both showed up on the scene around the same time. During Colleen’s bachelorette party, she told me how they met, and I literally laughed out loud because the same Welsh rugby player, “Taffy,” who introduced me to my now-husband had also introduced her to her now-husband! Who would think Taffy to be such a great matchmaker?!

Mike and Colleen’s wedding day was so perfect. They held the ceremony and reception at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science near City Park. The day was gloomy, but no matter because I was petrified we’d have a bright sunny blazing hot August day that would make for not-so-ideal photography conditions.

I thought the most special moment was when Colleen began saying “I do,” the sun broke through and filled the ceremony with warm sunlight. It was almost divine.

I’m so happy for the two of them. They have been great teammates (rugby and footy) and even better friends. I love them, and wish them nothing but happiness!

The Lammers’ – 6/16/17

More than 80. That number means a lot to someone I know very well. Debbie hired me at the company I worked at prior to starting my photography adventure. I was so thrilled when her daughter reached out to me, asking to purchase a photo session birthday gift for her mom. Debbie lost more than 80 pounds through Weight Watchers, and wanted to celebrate this monumental occasion by doing a photoshoot with her two grandsons. I love capturing moments in time for people and their families. I was very honored that Debbie wanted me to capture these extra special memories for her. I think she looks fabulous, and am so impressed by her achievement. Way to go Debbie!!!
