Just a quick posting today. As we leave behind the warm summer weather, and head into autumn, I am already missing summer.
So, just have to share one of my favorite Denver Children’s Portrait sessions, shot during summer:

It’s Denver Baby Photography week! (Ok, not really – I made that up. But that last blog post of baby props really put me in the mood to share some of my favorite Denver baby photos – some with props, and some just pure newborn baby goodness!
(BTW, if you are looking to have newborn photos taken of your baby, I always recommend booking in your 6th month, about 3 months from your due date. We’ll put a date on the calendar approx 5 days after birth (but always before 10 days old!), and I’ll keep some flexibility in the weeks before and after, so make sure we can slide the date around to accommodate your actual delivery date. )
A quick word on baby skin – newborn baby skin can be quite splotchy, dry, red, etc. I do a little skin smoothing, but I don’t want your baby to look like he or she is made of plastic. I prefer a more natural look – or perhaps we should call it a “slightly optimized” natural look. 😉
Artistic Denver Baby Photography
Here’s a little BTS (behind the scenes) peek at my ever-growing baby prop collection. I tend to do more natural / lifestyle baby images, and I esp like to make images that include parents. But, we will usually do at least one or two of the “posed” images, and parents have a huge collection to select from! Do you see the “lions and tigers and bears” in the upper right/ Or the hungry caterpillar in the lower left, near the owl? Of course we have all three major sports: football, soccer and basketball (sorry baseball – I don’t have you here, but we did use a father’s baseball glove once, and put his baby son in it!). There is also a lion, and Xmas props and even a sock monkey!
Here are the props, sans bebe:
And here are some images using those props. Adorbs, right?

Happy Mother’s Day!
Since I’m spending the day with my children rather than on the computer (but NOT gardening, thank you 4″ of Denver snow), I’m sharing my blog post from a previous Mother’s Day.
The kiddos are already climbing all over me, asking me to go build snowmen in the backyard. With “Real Carrots!”
Q: “What did one snowman say to the other?”
A; “Do you smell carrots?”
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Mammas out there!
Broomfield Baby and Family Photography
Hello my Broomfield, Boulder and Denver families. Lots of sunshine today, great day to get outside for that bike ride.
(BTW, in you live North of Denver (like Broomfield, Westminster, Lafayette, Louisville, Northglenn) , check out my “Park Guide” for suggestions on fun new parks to visit with your kiddos.)
How long has it been since you got family portraits done? If it’s been more than a year, and esp. if it’s been more than two, you are due! Your kiddos change so much from year to year! Let’s capture your family’s unique personality and love for each other.
Spring is a great time for Family Photography. The grass has greened up, the leaves are budding out, but there is still enough bare branches to provide a stunning contrast to you and your family. For a great example, see the video below.
This video below is a sample of “Premium” Family Portraits, which include some behind-the-scenes video as well as still portraiture. “Still” images (photographs) are beautiful, and it’s also fun to have video mixed in to give a richer, deeper experience and memory.
