Back To Work

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas celebrations, we had a wonderful time and I am sad to see it go... if only we could figure out how to make it last longer! Today, I was back to work. The Christmas holiday had brought this family together from across the United States and it was the perfect photo op! Unfortunately, one of the little guys was suffering from an ear infection and a case of pneumonia! So we had to move our shoot to the home of one of the families to help try and keep everyone out of the cold. We took every imaginable combination of people so this is a very small peek at our time together. I hope you enjoy it! To schedule your own appointment, see my website at Until next time... Cija

Merry Christmas!!

Well it's finally here... Christmas, truly the most wonderful time of the year. Today, I spent the day celebrating the greatest birthday of all with my 3 little girls. We tried to make Spritz Cookies but ended up with "melting snowmen instead, then it was "Sweetie Pies", Chocolate covered spoons & candy canes and of course Rudolf noses! Now every one is dressed in their Christmas best so we can go to the Christmas Eve service and worship God for the Gift of His Son... Jesus Christ, a baby who was born to die so that I might live! Merry Christmas everyone!

Family Photographer in Lakewood, CO

Happy Monday to you all! I will be taking the rest of this week off to hang with my kiddos while they are on Christmas break, with shoots resuming on the 27th of December, so this will be my last blog entry for a while. Yesterday, I was with Melissa and her family, fiance' Robert, their beautiful kids... Brandon & Jordan, and Melissa's parents Jeff & Kirsten (sorry if I got any of those names spelt wrong). What a beautiful day!!! I could have taken pictures of Jordan all day long, she would jump at the chance to be photographed and had perfect presence in front of the lens, made my job super easy!! Some of the other members of the group, however, were a little distracted by the GEESE!! (Just givin' you a hard time, Robert!!) It was an absolute pleasure to meet and work with this family. For pricing information or to schedule your own photo shoot please visit my website at XOXO Cija

Families... Families... Families...

Can you believe Christmas is only 5 days away! Last night we met up with some friends at the Mellow Mushroom for dinner and then went to see our favorite Christmas lights, we have 5 houses that we go to ever year and they never disappoint! Disappointment did set in, however, when we tried to hit Starbucks afterwards for hot chocolate and it was closed... at 9:30??? Honestly, shouldn't Starbucks be a 24 hour establishment!? But the Christmas festivities continue straight into today, this afternoon we are going to see "The Nutcracker" at the Parker Dance Studio and there is talk about maybe the Wildlife Experience or Hudson Gardens tonight. We are livin' it up! There are however, a few more photo shoots before the big day. Yesterday afternoon I meet up with The Bentien family, I enjoyed my time with them so much... just a really nice group of people. I am afraid that I am booked for the remainder of the month but if you are looking to photos of your own family, you can check out my schedule on the website at Merry Christmas! Cija

Family Photographer in Castle Rock, Colorado

I was finally able to get outside today and take some pictures! I was glad to see a break in the cold, cold, COLD weather! Today I was with the McKee family, and other then being scared half to death by a bunny in the bushes (guess I'm not quite over the snake sighting) it went quite smoothly. I hope you enjoy the pictures, I must be on my way, there is dinner to make and then I am off to church for a gift wrapping fellowship! Till next time! (Oh, and thank you, thank you, thank you, for all the christmas cards you have sent to me!!! I have just LOVED seeing how you are using your photos!!) Merry Merry Christmas everyone! Cija
