2018 Seniors - A Styled Shoot in Parker, Colorado

Can I just start by saying that these ladies are gorgeous?! I certainly do not remember being this beautiful in high school. Who is with me on that? Anyhow, I was so grateful these 6 Grandview High School gals signed up to do a Senior styled shoot with me! I have had this vision of doing a more "girlfriends" oriented Senior session for a while now, and I loved how it came together. And of course, it wouldn't have been nearly as stellar without my team!

Wardrobe: Sierra of Mainstream Boutique provided the wardrobe for this shoot and she absolutely knocked it out of the park. One thing I love about this boutique is there is a little something for everyone. High school students to college students, new moms to grandmas, you will find something at Mainstream.  In Colorado there are two locations -  Mainstream Boutique - Aurora and Mainstream Boutique - Castle Pines - but there are locations nationwide. 

Makeup: Caroline Ward and Ashley Ross are both up and coming artists here in the Denver Metro area. Both are amazingly talented and together they tag-teamed to doll these girls up. (Although, let's be honest, the whole time us older girls were gushing over how flawless and beautiful their complexions were already!) 



Falls Lake North Carolina Family Session - The Fisher Family

The Fisher fam is not new around here. But it has been quite some time. The last time I photographed this little family was in 2014 on the shores of the Outer Banks in North Carolina, and they were only a family of three!

Well now they are a family of four, and on my most recent visit we decided to spend an afternoon at Falls Lake to enjoy the woods, the water, and the most beautiful sunset. 

Denver New Life Session {The Braun Family}

She just could not wait a day longer. This little peanut decided for herself that at 35 weeks, she was ready. Ready to meet her amazing parents and her adorable fur-sister. Ready to win the heart of anyone who meets her. And ultimately, ready for her closeup. 

This little lady really did not want to miss her session. For the first 90 minutes, she was wide awake - more than she had ever been in the short 14 days of her young life thus far. But eventually, it was just too much and she caved into a deep, peaceful sleep, allowing us to really nail this session. 

Congratulations Braun Family on your baby girl. She is precious and I look forward to watching you all grow on this journey as a family of three!

Monument Extended Family Session - The Colsons

You have seen these faces around here often, and every time is just as sweet as the last. Randall and I have been friends since high school - 11 years to be exact - and I am so grateful that his beautiful wife Haley and I fell into a friendship so naturally. But my heart truly smiles knowing that our babies are the same age and will grow up being friends too! :)

Last year we did an extended family session with Haley's family, and this year we did the same but with Randall's! I really love capturing the special relationships between different members of the extended family - like grandparents and aunts and uncles. 

The Colsons recently moved a little further south to Monument last year, and we took advantage of this beautiful spot that is exclusive to their neighborhood! 

{personal} Summer Love

Where did summer go? I feel like we were just saying hello to green grass, leafy trees, and warm sunshine yesterday! And now, as I drive around town, I notice that leaves on trees and shrubs are starting to turn in preparation for winter. 

If I am being honest, this summer has been quiet around here at Emilyanne Photography. But I feel the timing couldn't have been better. With my career at Johnson & Johnson well under way, I consequently have longer work days. So I have been soaking in the time and memories made with my own little family. 

And as I prepare for fall - undoubtably the busy season here in beautiful Colorado - I am excited for what is to come.
