Newborn Photography In Castle Rock Colorado

Well, today was certainly an adventure! Those of you, who follow my blog, know that I am strictly a natural light photographer, even my indoor shoots (for newborns & maternity) are done using the natural light from the back windows of my home; but today mother nature posed issues for me not only on the outside but the inside too!! Just about the time Ian showed up for his very first photo shoot the big dark storm clouds began to roll in and there was not enough light in the house to do the shoot. So we had to pack up everything and move out on the back porch, soon the rain came so we put of the big patio umbrella to keep Ian and the camera dry... but then the winds came and blew over the backdrop, it was definately time to move back inside. Ian took a little break, had a little snack and the clouds parted enough to let us finish our shoot! Whew!!

Baby Milestone Pictures in Castle Rock, Colorado

Yes, it is 1:00AM! I am turning into a vampire, and no it is not Twilight related and for the record, no I have not read the books, reading is not one of my strengths but I did see the movie.

Now moving on... this is Tanner! and this was the second of his 4 milestone photoshoots. The six month shoot is always fun, because these cute little ones get to show off their sitting up skills! The "Growing Wishes" & "New & Growing Wishes" packages are affordable ways for you to capture all the important stages of your new baby's big first year. For pricing and availability check out my website at Coming up this week... a newborn, some babies & a 2010 senior! Now I am off to bed, so we can get to church bright and early tomorrow morning!

Outdoor Children's Photography in the Denver Metro Area

Okay, I seriously need to address the hours I have been keeping lately! When did I become such a night owl! But I just couldn't help myself, tonight I had such a fun shoot with Elizabeth, who just turned two! What a precious little girl with a smile that makes you melt! She was soooo adorable, I could hardly stand it!

Outdoor Family Photography in Lonetree, Colorado

Last night I had so much fun with the Edward's family! I loved their blue and yellow outfits, they looked so summery and fresh! Let me take a minute here to give you a hint, if you are wondering what to wear when having your own photos done, resist the temptation to wear white. In a photography setting white can be a photographer's worst nightmare, as it reflects the sun and makes getting an eye pleasing exposure quite a challenge. So... have fun with COLOR!

Just another reminder to book your fall sessions soon, the calendar is filling up fast, and if you are looking for a Christmas card that is going to blow everyone's socks off, check out the one of a kind designs of!! A fun and beautiful way to showcase your new photos!

Well, I am off... the kids what some pool time before I head out the door for tonight's shoot.

TTFN! Cija

Family Photography In Colorado Springs

In just nine minutes it will be Saturday and the weekend will be officially underway, woohoo!! This evening, I was down near Colorado Springs and got to meet Robert, Shelley & Joshua. In just a couple of months, there will be a new member of this family... Claire, who will be coming to start a new life in American with her new family. Robert & Shelley are adopting Claire from Korea, and while they are excited to welcome their baby girl into the family, they wanted to preserve some memories with their little boy Joshua before she arrives. Joshua was a fantastic photo assistant and helped take many of the pictures of his mom and dad, what would I have done with out him!! Thanks, Joshua!! You're the best! For more information about booking a family photo session of your own check out my website at Enjoy your weekend and I'll be back again sometime next week!

2010 Senior Portraits

Well, it's that time of year... time for Senior pictures. One of my first loves, I got my start in photography doing senior pictures and spending some time with Chad reminded me why. I love hearing about the big plans these young hopefuls have for their future, at a time when their dreams are just waiting to be captured. Chad is planning to join the Marines, and will set off on this brave adventure in June of 2010. Thanks Chad, for choosing to serve your country and for protecting the freedom we Americans so enjoy!

Newborn Photography In Castle Rock

So you remember last week... the maturnity pictures?!? Well little Cade was born two days later, and came for his 1st photo shoot one week later. Oh what a sweet little baby!! I think he looks just like his mommy! He was wide awake when he arrived so we were able to sneek a couple pictures before he drifted back to sleep. Cade's photoshoot took a little over two hours, newborn shoots tend to take a little longer than other types of shoots, because sometimes we have to wait for babies to fall asleep, wake up, eat or maybe just calm down. I always leave plenty of time for newborn shoots, so come relaxed and plan to stay as long as it takes. Check out my website at for pricing and scheduling information. Well... we are headed out to the pool before those pesky thunder storms roll in!

Family Photography in the Colorado Springs Area

Yesterday, I had the distinct honor of taking pictures for my former Pastor and his family. The 4th of July holiday had brought them all together, even their son-in-law, who serves in our Armed Forces was able to be there, so it was great time to capture a fun family memory. I spent the rest of the day with my family and friends... BBQ, games and fireworks rounded out the days activities. Happy Birthday, AMERICA!!!
