In Home Lifestyle Newborn - Carl + Beth + Baby Anya

We all know how much I love in-home newborn lifestyle sessions, but you add that with a beautiful adoption story and I am in my happy place. Adoption holds a special place in my heart since I was adopted and I hope to move towards photographing more adoptions more in this coming year. Stay tune, there are a lot of exciting things coming soon!

When I met with Beth before the session she was so open and sweet to share her and her husband, Carl’s heart for adoption. Carl was adopted and when they got together he made it very clear he wanted to adopt children someday. Due to various adoption agency rules, they were able to officially begin their journey 2 years after they were married. Adoption is not for the faint of heart, it is a journey full of paperwork and a lot of hurry up and wait. 2 years later, Beth and Carl were selected and about 6 weeks after they were at the hospital ready to take their new baby girl home!

Red Rock Open Space - Maternity - Ryan + Mary Kathryn

Baby girl Elenor will be here before they know it! Mary Kathryn and Ryan had quite the experience finding out they are pregnant. Long story short she was in the emergency room at Fort Carson for some stomach pain, lo and behold this wasn’t just an upset tummy - a baby would soon join their world. Have you ever had or heard of a crazy ‘finding out you are pregnant’ story? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

Denver Wedding - Gabby + Daniel

I had a hard time just choosing only a few pictures to feature of Daniel and Gabby’s wedding. They are such a beautiful couple and it was an amazing day to witness and capture. I don’t photograph weddings often, but when you have a bride and groom like them, it makes me want to open up more availability for weddings. We will see… in the meantime, enjoy the sweet wedding photos from their special day.

Rustic Lace Barn - Colorado Springs - Intimate Wedding

A small, intimate wedding at her daughter’s venue - yes please! What a beautiful celebration with family. Marjorie and Joel stood up in front of their family and vowed their lives to one another. It was simple and elegant, and beyond perfect for these two. After they exchanged vows, they cranked up the speakers and even had a little dance party. I love sessions like this, I love documenting your authentic moments. I love capturing your joy as you are fully present in your moment, and you don’t have to worry about recording it for yourself. I love creating something that will help you relive your best moments again and again.

If you are planning a wedding here in Colorado Springs, check out the The Rustic Lace Barn. It is such a charming space and Jessie, the event director is the sweetest to work with! Pictures below are of their outdoor ceremony spot, but inside the barn is absolutely perfect as well!
