Portrait Photographer in Denver, CO

Today I had the honor of working with Mike. Mike made arrangements to have his pictures taken as a gift for his wife. What wife wouldn't like that? I would love a great picture of Rod!! (I suppose I am in a position to actually do something about that...) So we set out to the light rail station, Mike had requested a more urban feel to his pictures and then poked fun at my wimpy light rail system compared to the subway systems he was used to!! Went as far to say they look like little Lego toys! (Ya know... he's kinda right!) But oh well, wimpy or not it was a fun place to take pictures!

A little over a year ago, I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Ellie and her family in the midst of Ellie's (currently age 4) fight against cancer. At that time I asked all of you to be praying for Ellie and her family and last July I let you know that Ellie was in remission, a huge answer to prayer. You may recall that Ellie was battling with a seriously aggressive form of cancer and during a recent scan they saw some nodules on her lungs; Ellie will be going back in a few weeks to have another look. Ellie and Mike unfortunately have cancer in common, so again I am asking you to pray. Mike, in addition to being a husband is also a daddy to three little boys ages 3, 4 & 5 (a set of Irish twins only 10.5 months apart!! God Bless his wife!). Will you please join me in praying for these two families?

The Final Days of Winter

I fear that the final days of winter are upon us. I know that most you are chomping at the bit for spring and summer to arrive, but I love winter. I love everything about it! I love the clothes, making hot chocolate, watching fire flicker in a fire place while the snow floats done from the sky, absolutely everything! So today when it started snowing I wanted to run out and play in it; some go sledding, others build a snowman but my kind of playing usually includes a camera! My spring shoots start up again this week so I hope you enjoy one more round of fun.

Today's shoot was especially fun because my oldest daughter, Melia joined me. Melia is 6 years old a has a developing eye for photography. What a trooper she was out in the cold trying to get just the right shot! She never gave up, she was out there with me the whole time. She was really excited when I told her she could do her own post editting! She had lots of fun playing with the different effects. I hope you enjoy her work!!
This is a picture of our backyard, the blue green area is our above ground pool and the purple area is grass.

This is a snow covered bush, pretty cool huh?!?
Melia's partner in crime.
Until next time!! Cija

A Few of My Favorite Things

So... just for fun, I decided to share a few of my favorite things!! I hope you enjoy getting to know me as more than just a photographer. Now keep in mind these are favorite things not favorite people, so no pics of my peeps this time!!
I love everything MAC!!! Every shadow, lipstick, pigment, lip glass, I even love their #4 lashes!!
Ah... The Golden Bear!! I got this necklace many, many moons ago, but I just love it!! If you are ever in Vail, CO be sure to visit The Golden Bear store, it's one of the happiest places on earth!


DVR!! The single most wonderful invention ever!!! Love it! There is just nothing like putting the kiddos to bed, curling up on the couch with my hubby and watching commercial free TV! Missed something? Back it up! Don't wanna see something? Fast Forward! Want a bowl of ice cream press "pause"!! Simply Perfect!
Speaking of ice cream!!! YUM!!! I love hot fudge!!! and it just so happens that my friend Talia brought me this cute little handmade jar just last night! We will be diggin' into it tonight!!
Hmmm... Snickers might be a stretch! Some days she really gets on my nerves! But she is cute!
ORGANIZATION! I am all for it!!! I absolutely love my custom made drawer dividers!!

I am a firm believer in a different set of dishes for every month of the year!! This is just one of my 3 cabinets of dishes!!
Now, I am not a big reader. My mind wanders... but I loved the Twilight series. Edward is a true romantic! Read all 4 books in under 3 weeks!!
I had actually given up Coke about 8 years ago, but I had one on New Year's Eve and I was quickly reminded of the yumminess!!!
Well, that was actually pretty fun!! I had fun photographing some of my favorite things!! Bookings have really started to pick up for the spring!! To book your own session see my website at! Until next time! Cija
