the birthday girl…{littleton event photographer}

it was SO much fun getting to photograph these girls at their birthday party yesterday. they were just lovely–and had so much energy–and an extreme amount of creativity! they giggled (a lot) and were totally up for artistic photos (in addition to their instax ones). i have to admit their enthusiasm was pretty cool to be around.

we did a bunch of photos outside of the house (in the street of course) and then headed to a special spot with a view of the mountains for more photos. the wind blew just right and the sun was just about to set so we didn’t have a lot of time. but the company and the view were both just perfect.

thanks for trusting in me to capture this time in your daughter’s life C. it was a real treat! HBD J!!


mason and family… {arvada family photographer}

this little guy tugs at my heartstrings.  he’s so adorable and so loved.  i’ve had the honor of photographing his family for several years now and really enjoy being with them.  (and i love that they are all from pittsburgh too…my hometown.)  hanging out with them during this shoot was just like being with my own family.)

a little “cameron time”… {parker family photographer}

i wish i were exaggerating when i say that i did not want to leave after hanging out with this family…. after our photo shoot.  we laughed.  a lot.  and these two were so adorable together and quite interesting as well.  and then there’s cameron…  what a doll.  i felt a strong connection to him and wanted to hang out on the new patio furniture on the new deck cuddling with this cutie pie long after our shoot ended.  but i didn’t want to  impose…

{but i’m pretty sure i invited myself over to do just that in the near future…}

the images do a great job of portraying their love and connection as well as showcasing just how adorable cameron is!

this family is connected with the amazing Maria Hopfgarten (and her late son Jacob) via the organization called:  Miracles for Mito.  (They are hosting a silent auction dinner on October 1st at the Forney Museum of Transportation in Denver which I will be photographing:)  TICKET INFO HERE.  Please consider donating, volunteering or attending an event with this fantastic organization.

thank you guys for welcoming into your home, laughing with me, and letting me cuddle with your sweet, sweet boy.




foudue fairytales at the Melting Pot in littleton {denver event photography}

what an honor it was to attend and photograph this event (they also feature a superhero sunday alternating weekends throughout the summer.  although this weekend was the last time this will be offered again next summer) at The Melting Pot in Littleton.  so much fun and so many smiles–especially mine–during these theme lunches (complete with a terrifically talented face painter on site as well).  i honestly didn’t want leave.  the event featured princesses (many) as well as a cameo by prince charming, songs, dancing, tiaras, face painting, balloons, and even an autographed photo of all the performers) in addition to a yummy fondue lunch (and chocolate).

it was great to be able to collaborate with and .  nowadays there isn’t a lot to choose from when you are wanting a unique and memorable event to experience with your kiddos.   this is one to pre book for next summer for sure!  (there were even a few groups celebrating with a birthday party at the event–what a great idea!)

thank you to the  for trusting in me to capture this super fun event!  (be sure to check their page for up coming events as well!)
