Family Photography in Castle Pines, CO

I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.  Mine has been quite delightful... church this morning and then a baby shower with the twins and now the kids have some friends over (date night for mom and dad).  Last night was Rod and my turn, we came home to watch a movie in the comfort of our own home and then went out for dinner.  It was lovely!!  But before our date night began I was with the Ward Family... all 17 of them!!!  3 of the 4 families are visiting for Montana and Washington state, so it was the perfect time to get everyone out for a family photo!
 I won't even begin to pretend that I remember or even knew all the names during the shoot.  But I do know that this is Ernie and Patty (AKA mom and dad and grandma and grandpa)
And their 9 fabulous grandkids!!!  Nice mustaches aye?!
This is Rachel and her family.
 Can I just take a moment here to say how MUCH i LOVE the colors!!!
Rachel was in charge of wardrobe, way to go Rachel!!!
 This is Andy and his family... if I am right this is the Colorado family. 

 Mike and Kelsey decided to add on a mini family shoot to this Lot and Lots of Wishes package which gained them some individual images of just their kiddos and 3 extra images for their CD. 
 What great shoot!  The kids was FABULOUS!!  They did great!  And we used up every bit of available light!!  Thanks Ward Family!!!

Boudoir Photography in Castle Rock, CO

NOTE: While I offer full service Boudoir photography I do not post any of my "more delicate" work in this public forum, to see a private boudoir gallery please contact me at 

This past week Tina and I had the best time working with Stephanie.  She booked her session back in December and had been sweatin' bullets ever since, just thinking about it.  This was so far out of her comfort zone.  I have known Stephanie for a while and when I look at her all I see if a beautiful woman on the inside and out, but like all of the fabulous ladies I have worked with, when the shoot began, out came her list of  things she didn't like about herself.  The impact that Steph's shoot had on her was significant and I asked if she would be willing to come on my blog as guest blogger and share the "after effect" with you all.  So please welcome, Stephanie.

"Boudoir Photography. Beauty.  Perfection.  Completion.  You are fearfully and wonderfully made.  Not until you experience it,  will you believe it, no matter who tells you.  It's the beauty that is in the curve of the back, the shoulder blade, the wisp of a curl, the beauty of the eyes.  It's you.  It's God's completion and love.  It's the beauty within a marriage. It's the beauty that takes that love to a deeper, more committed love. "It's not the desire of your spouse?" Yes, it is. It's the insecurity talking, forbidding you. It's what's been stripped from every woman, willing her to beat herself up from not being good enough, pretty enough, worthy enough.  Within the confines of a safe environment, with a classy photographer and a willing heart, you will be found.  Cija answers each scenario you seek.  You can do this, God's work will be revealed to you in yourself.  You will be shocked, you won't understand it and for the first time you will soar!"

Boudoir photography isn't just for Valentine's day, it's for any day.  Is today your day?

Children's Photographer in Castle Pines, Co

Yesterday the girls didn't have school, so we planned a day at the rec center pool... but first, we met up with Cooper!!

He is turning 4 in just a couple of weeks and well... every birthday should be documented.
Plus, he has another very important job!
 He is going to be a big brother and he is in charge of gettin' the word out to all their friends and family.
Cooper's mom whipped together this very nifty chalkboard.  What I would like to know is how did she do the date banner at the bottom?

 This is my 3rd shoot with Cooper and I am always so impressed with how polite and well behaved he is, he is such a delight to work with!!  
 And Bonus!!  We got to see a firetruck and a crane!!  How cool is that?
Probably won't be back until Tuesday, unless...  I am hoping to have a guest blogger!  One of my very own clients, who I have asked to share her experience with her recent boudoir shoot!
But until then, I am going to try and find the floor in my house again!!  My nephew and his beautiful bride to be are coming over for dinner!!
