Mandy + Bryce | Horsetooth Reservoir | Fort Collins, Colorado Wedding Photographer

This Fort Collins, Colorado family session of Mandy and Bryce is just the best thing ever! We photographed their anniversary session at Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, Colorado capturing family pictures with their newest family member – Penny Lane! How sweet is this King Charles Cocker Spaniel?? I could take her picture all day! Oh, and that gorgeous backdrop? I just LOVE finding water in Colorado. That is the one thing I miss about living on the coast my whole life, so anytime I find these fun hidden gems in Colorado I go crazy with pictures!! Enjoy!

Bouzek Family Session | Chatfield State Park | Colorado Family Photographer

Sara and her precious family asked me to photograph them right around the time she found out she had miscarried. She lost interest in the shoot and told me her family didn’t feel complete. I nudged her to do the shoot since she’d said she didn’t have very many pictures just the three of them and she hesitated but eventually agreed. After the shoot, here is what she wrote. “Peace is what I feel when looking at these. I want to say thank you to Alison Epps for being a friend, a photographer and involuntarily being a support system this fall. On September 9th we miscarried. And I honestly didn’t want to think about family photos — I kept putting it off but Alison asked…

Dorsten Family | Denver, Colorado Family Photographer | Lone Tree Family Session

This is Brenna, Matt and Jane. They are the sweetest family of three that you’ll ever meet. I went to high school with Brenna a little while ago (I won’t say how many years ago because it makes me feel too old) and shortly after college Brenna and Matt moved to Denver. When I was looking to move here I immediately contacted Brenna to get the scoop on the best locations to live, the best breweries in town and best child-friendly activities. Jane and my daughter Hadley instantly became friends and the rest is history. :) I was so excited when Brenna told me they’d not ever done real family photos, and immediately got to thinking where we could make some beautiful images for them….

Leah’s Maternity Session | Driftwood Beach | Jekyll Island, Georgia


Y’all it has seriously been my dream to photograph a maternity session on this Jekyll Island’s Driftwood Beach since the day I first discovered it on the coast of Georgia. I’ve done other types of shoots here but THIS was my dream session, and it was for one of my very best friends, to boot! This gorgeous mama-to-be took care of me throughout my entire pregnancy, and the stressful weeks of learning how to be a mama to a newborn. After I moved away from Savannah, she even bought a house just doors down from where we own our home and it kills me not to be next to her for every step of her journey. BUT I will be there virtually and physically as…

Hadley June | Colorado Family Photographer | Colorado Family Session

Colorado Family Photographer Session

Ever since we found our home in Colorado, Hadley loves to walk down the street from our “new house” (several times a day even) to visit the horses that live nearby. We moved just as fall was coming to an end so we got to see some of the beautiful weather, but pretty much all the leaves had fallen and it was starting to snow more and more often. She wants to walk there and sometimes I tell her we can’t today, it’s too cold. We drive past them on our way in and out and ask how they’re doing, bring them apples and make sure they have their horse blankets on. I know it’s a bit early in the season to say I can’t…
