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!) 

 

 

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!

New Life Milestone Sessions {The Sadler Family}

The Sadlers have been clients of mine since sweet big brother Kai was baking in the oven. For Kai, we did a whole first year program, with sessions at each milestone until his first birthday! So, when Amy found out she was expecting again, she signed up right away for her second little guy to have his first year milestone sessions too! We started with a beautiful maternity session at The Hive on 16th. I was so in love with the gorgeous lace gown Amy ordered from Sew Trendy Accessories and the simple backdrop of the studio let Amy shine through!

Tristan was born 27 April 2016. I was so happy to meet and snuggle him shortly after and wasn't surprised at all to see he looked exactly like his big brother. Amy and Matt sure do make cute baby boys!

Our second session was right around 4 months and full of more big blue eyes and some smiles and giggles. This little guy though was definitely teething and was so wiped at the end of the session he fell asleep mid-pose! 

We met again just before Christmas with a sitting up session. And I must say - he pretty much rocked it! He and Kai looked so adorable in their matching sweaters, and I just loved his solo session with the tie. So many smiles and those big blue eyes are enough to melt your heart!

Our final session was a special one. The Sadler family moved to a beautiful home in the Vail Valley not too long ago. And so to celebrate Tristan turning one, and their new adventures living in the mountains, we had his final one year session at home. 

Thank you Amy, Matt, Kai and Tristan for welcoming me into your home and allowing me to watch you grow! 

Golden Colorado New Life Session {Mr. S}

I absolutely love when my wedding clients become friends. I honestly can't think of a couple in the last 6 years that I haven't bonded with. And because of these relationships, I am privileged to watch them grow from newlyweds to new parents.

A lot has changed for Laura and Andrew since they were married last March. They bought a house, adopted an adorable pup Ranger, and most recently welcomed their sweet baby boy into their arms just a few weeks ago. Congratulations you two on your greatest adventure yet! He is perfect in every way and together you make an excellent team. 

 

 

Vista Peak Senior Session {Paxtynn}

Throwback Thursday post for you! It's been two years since this beautiful lady's senior session, and yet I still love it. Paxtynn has such a bright, beautiful smile and certainly one of the the kindest hearts. I loved her outfit selections, I loved her floral crown, and I loved how much of HER was present in this session. That is what Senior sessions should be all about! 

Hey CLASS OF 2018....as the weather warms up and summer approaches, it's never too early to book your Senior session! 

Let's do it!
