Maternity Photography In Castle Rock, Highlands Ranch, Parker & Denver Metro

Ya know what I love about belly shots?!?!? Newborn shots are just a few weeks away! Chris and Cathy are waiting until the baby is born to find out what they are having, in fact they waited with all three of their kids. How in the world do they do that??? So what do you think? A boy or a girl? Hmmm... I think it's girl, she is just to tiny to have a big strappin' boy in there right!?!?! Well... you will have to check back in January to find out. Cathy is taking advantage of the New & Growing Wishes package which will give her pictures not only at one week old but at 3, 6, 9 & 12 months!! To get more information, see my website at Well, I am off, it's date night with the hubby! TTFN Cija

Family Photography in Castle Rock, CO

One last family shoot from this holiday weekend to share with you. I enjoyed these little boys so much! One of my favorite photos is of little Evan walking down the path with his brother, swappin' some conversation while trying to pull up his pants! I absolutely love those real life moments got on film. My calendar is nearly booked for the rest of 2009, so start thinking about those first quarter birthday pictures, and don't forget to book your child's Valentine shoot!! I haven't heard for certain, but I bet Jackie over at will be running a special on Valentine cards again this year too!! Don't forget to visit the website at to check my schedule and get pricing information. XOXO Cija

Black Friday... Black & White Shoot

So... are you one of those people that gets up at 4:00 AM to hit the sales on Black Friday? I used to be, in fact my mom and I made it on the news one year, we thought we were pretty cool! But two years ago we started a new tradition of going to chop down a Christmas tree with our fellow wood chopper the Kurtz's. Of course, Christmas card pictures were in order! Enjoy!

Well the tree is up and house is decorated for Christmas! We cut down our own tree again this year and Rod was determined that we wouldn't have another Charlie Brown tree this year, it was quite an adventure to say the least! We also switched out our lights this year to the new LED version... I must admit I feel like there is a UFO in my living room (is their a dimmer anywhere?!?!) Before and after the tree cutting I had 3 photo shoots, below is a sneak peak at a two in one shoot of Mike & Jill and Steve & Julie's families. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Cija

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only 2 days away!?!? Where has this year gone? There is so much to be thankful for this year. The Lord has richly blessed us and sustained us this year, and His grace and mercy never ceases to amaze me. As I sit here working at my computer the sound of giggles is bouncing off the walls... I can't help but be reminded of the years we prayed for a child and the babies that slipped away too soon. There is much to be thankful for, indeed.

This beautiful family also finds their way onto my list of things to be thankful for this year. Their sacrifices of time and endless hours of effort have deeply ministered and touched my heart and the hearts of my family. I hope you enjoy these photos of our Pastor, Brian, his lovely wife, Jenipher and their sweet girls.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Cija

Family Photography in Denver

Brrrr!! It's cold outside! But that didn't stop us! Today I was with the Telgenhoff family, are these little kiddos too cute or what?!? Cold weather can put a damper on the moods of children so it you find your shoot on a chilly day, make sure and dress accordingly and remember the coordinating coats and jackets, scarfs and hats can all make for great photos. So... think outside of the box and plan a fun winter photo!! To schedule your own frosty photo session see my website at I'm off to see New Moon!! XOXO Cija

Family Photographer in Castle Rock, Colorado

I'm back... it's only going to get more crazy this week, with shoots everyday except for THANKSGIVING, so... I thought I better get in one more post from this weekend. Today I was Mike, Kristen, Aiden & Parker. A few years back, my oldest daughter, Melia and Parker were in the same Sunday school class and I must admit she had a bit of a crush, ofcourse having not seen him for a couple of years she has moved on and now has her sights set on Jackson. I am always amazed at the difference between boys and girls. The girls are usually very concerned with their outfits and making sure they don't get dirty but boys... they are on a mission to see how much ground they can cover between each snap of the shutter; all the while their mom is calling after them "guys... please try not to get dirty before we take the first picture!!" Too funny! Well, with the twin's spending the night at Nana & Papa's and Melia tucked in for the night, I am off to spend some time with the hubbie... XOXO Cija

Yesterday, I got to be with Cade... one of my favorite milestone babies!! Oh... and the rest of his family was there too! Special circumstances called for an early morning shoot and boy was it brisk outside!! But at least it wasn't SNOWING!! I am pretty much booked up for the rest of the year (there are a few openings in December) so start thinking about pictures for the new year, and my Valentine Special, just $75 includes a mini shoot and 5 images 0n CD(for kids only please...) Until next time... Cija
