Burrell Bunch Visits Buena Vista

Tarah and Jason have been dear friends of ours for several years. This was the first time the whole family ventured out to Colorado. My husband and I loaded up the truck and he found the perfect camping spot which turned into the perfect photo shoot spot. Tarah and Jason have the sweetest kiddos with lots of differing personalities. They were so much fun! Tarah, being a photographer herself, was in awe of beauty of Buena Vista area. Jason was excited to go fishing in the Arkansas River with my husband. It was a fun weekend with the Burrell Bunch and hopefully they come back to Colorado soon!

Allyson & Nelson Welcome a Baby Boy!

I had the joy of photographing Allyson and her husband Nelson on a warm spring day in Pueblo, Colorado. We took some intimate photos in their home and then ventured out to capture the last bit of daylight. Before they ever met their baby boy they were ready to be parents. You could it see it in the way Nelson cared for Allyson. When the time came for their newborn photos I could tell how in love they were and how in love they thought they were before he came. Babies change everything. Bringing a child into this world is the greatest connection a woman can have and becoming a parent is the deepest love one can have.

Kashia - Manitou Springs, Colorado

A short story about how I came to know this beautiful woman.  I set out from Florida to Colorado in May of 2015.  Without a set plan, except knowing I wanted to move, I packed up my Subaru and drove across the country.  Friends and family opened up their homes to me along the way.  I'll go into more detail about that adventure another day.  When I arrived in Colorado a lovely family, strangers, opened up their home to me.  A beautiful home in Cascade, which is a few miles from Pike's Peak.  I was broke, lonely and hungry and they offered me food, shelter and a relaxing mountain retreat.  I only lived with them a few weeks, but their hospitality made this entire move and entire life change possible.

This week Kashia starts her Senior Year at Manitou Springs High School.  I was delighted to capture her senior photos in a slightly different style than most senior photos you see in the yearbook.  She is a sweet, funny and goofy (in the best of ways) girl who, as you can tell by the photos, is blossoming into a stunning young woman.  Good luck in your Senior Year Kashia girl!
