Newborn Photographer in Castle Rock

Say "Hello" to Lincoln.
He is my current Gold Star Winner!!

WOW! What a happy and content little boy!!
I think I may have won Melia back over ; )
 And this is his very handsome big brother… Brecken (Hopefully, I got that spelling right)
I love this photo of the two of them!!
 Of course, Mom and Dad where there too...
and the pooch!!!
 This was one of those shoots where it was hard to leave… generally the babies got tired and it clear that it is time to go, but not Lincoln!  He just kept giving me one adorable face after the other.
Love Love Love this photo of Lincoln and his dad! His little hand of his chin and a great big smile.
 Don't ya just wish you looked like this when you sleep!!!

 I mean seriously!

Brecken was taking a few photos of his own!!  
 Yep, newborn shoot perfection!
Any exciting plans for the weekend?  Not so much here at the Cooksey's.  We hosted a graduation party for our sweet friend, Jaelin, last night.  This mornings shoot was postponed due to sickness (what is with all this late spring sickness, I am not a fan).  Maybe a trip to the pool before the rain blows in…
Oh and I am in complete denial that Melia is moving up to the Jr. High department at church tomorrow, there is no way my baby girl is old enough to be in JR HIGH!!!  
Boo Boo face!
Already then… till next time!

High School Senior Pictures in Castle Rock, CO

 First Senior of the year, or technically the last Senior of the year.  Austin just graduated and is headed to LeTourneau University in the fall to play golf. So we headed to the golf course for his Senior pictures.
 Now most of the courses we contacted said no, Arrowhead wanted $500, no that is not a type-o!
But the good folks over a Fox Hollow were GREAT! So a Big Thanks to Fox Hollow and letting us come out!!
 So the golf thing was fun and different and I enjoyed every minute of it, but the other fun thing...
 Austin's mom and I went went to high school together.  We hadn't seen each other since our Junior Year!  We reconnected through… you guessed it! Facebook!
 We were supposed to meet up last Wednesday, when we had all the storms!
I am so glad we waited, we could not have asked for a more beautiful day.

 After our golf fun it was time for a wardrobe change and some more traditional senior photos.
 Thanks Kim, for trusting me with your boy! It was great seeing you again!

Austin, I pray the Lord will lead you and guide you on this new and exciting adventure!
God Bless!

Newborn Photography in Castle Rock, CO

I love this picture soooooo  much!!!
Grant looks sooooo stinking cute all snuggly!  
And that sweet face!  I am in love!
He has such long fingers… perhaps a future quarterback.  Honestly, I have no idea why I said that, I have no idea if quarterbacks have long fingers!!
Sweet little yawn.
 Grant wasn't entirely sure that he wanted to have his pictures taken, he really just wanted his mama to hold him.
 But… I think he's pretty darn cute even when he is screaming! 
Melia went with me today (my oldest daughter) when we left she was seriously rethinking her decision to be a photographer when she grows up.
She said "Mom, that was a lot different than I thought it would be."
When I asked her what she meant, she said "I just thought the babies slept the whole time."
Oh Melia… you so silly!!
 Lovin' me them piggies!
 Sweetest little profile EVER!!!!
Okay, if I hurry… I will be in bed before midnight.
Nighty Nite!

Kids were "REALLY" here!

So there is this new thing going on out there on photography and mommy blogs called 
"Kids Were Here"
 The idea is to take photos that show evidence of kids being in the area.  I have seen some really cute ones here and there, but this morning I just had to laugh.  

This one blog showed the following pictures:
- a pristine coffee maker with a tiny plastic coffee cup sitting in front of it.
- toy cars and trucks perfectly lined up on the rug of her vacumed rug and swept floor
- a tiny toy toilet angled just so below the sparkling white family toilet
and the list goes on… Give me a break!

You wanna see the mess and destruction 3 girls can leave in less than 24 hours?!?!

 Yes, that is a cereal box under the dining room table on the chair.  Mind you… this is the formal dining room, not where we actually eat breakfast. 
 So, I am curious… did she just strip down to her undies in the middle of the family room and walk away!??!?

 and this is just the DOWNSTAIRS!!!
 Just a little reality break!  
Have a very Happy Memorial Day!
Thanks to all the Service Men and Women, who make this crazy life of mine possible!

Children's Photographer in Castle Rock, CO

YAY!  It's a 3 day weekend!! I hope you have something fun planned or maybe an weekend of rest!
Either sounds good to me.

Seems to be a big graduation open house weekend.  We have 4 to attend, one last night and 3 today.
And Monday we have been invited to a BBQ, we were pretty excited… we usually play the roll of host, so to be invited somewhere is a real treat!

On Wednesday morning, I got to be with Tyler and his Mom.  He is turning 3 and it was time for some updated pictures. 
 He is such a sweet little boy and I always enjoy my time with Tyler and his big brother, Tristan. 
At one point he lifted an old wooden door to flip it over and a little critter ran out… I may have screamed, just a little.  I swear it was gerbil!  Blonde hair, short little tail and actually kind of cute!

 A gerbil is a lot better than a SNAKE!
He was crackin' me up, looking in this barn…  Boys are always so curious.
 And love sticks!

Well, I think I will join my family and start enjoying this holiday weekend.
Happy Memorial Dad!
