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.

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

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….

Robert + Maggie | Garden of the Gods Engagement – Colorado Springs | Colorado Wedding Photographer

  Robert and Maggie are just about the cutest couple around. I’ve known Robert for many years (12 to be exact). He and my husband grew up together so I’ve known him as long as I’ve known Brett. We’ve traveled together many times and kept in touch more than most childhood friends do throughout the years. He now lives in Austin, TX and us in Denver, CO but we seem to meet up in Orlando every so often as well since that is where we are all from. Well we were surprised and excited to meet his girlfriend, Maggie, when he came to visit us last. They fit together like puzzle pieces. They love Colorado and talk about moving here someday (um, yes please!). While…
