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!

Winter Family Session at Daniels Park in Castle Pines

This little family is another one near and dear to my heart. DJ and I went to the same school (apparently) but it wasn't until we both started working in the real world that we met as interns. After moving down unda' for a short while, DJ and Sarah made their way back to Colorado, and right back into my work family. You see, we were a tight group. We are all about the same age, married to our awesome spouses and we all got along like brothers and sisters. It was seriously the best. 

Last year, we all had our first baby - all within 6 months of each other. (Our boss had never been SO happy. She had been begging us for years to have babies....and here they were!) Sweet James is the youngest of the baby bunch, and the only boy! He is such a happy little dude, and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching DJ and Sarah grow into their roles as mom and dad. 

Oh and breaking news - Baby Ashurst #2 is due this year!!!! 



Albuquerque Cottonwood Trail Maternity Session

When our dear friends told us they were expecting a little bundle of joy, we whooped and hollered and were SO excited for them! Not only because we think being parents is the best gig ever, but because now our little lady will have a lifelong friend!

We had decided to venture down to Albuquerque for their baby shower this past year and I was stoked when they asked me if we could squeeze in a maternity session. The catch - we had to do a sunrise session. Thank goodness they were up for it, because not only was the Cottonwood Trail empty, but the light was AMAZING! And shooting in a new location - a new state even - was so liberating for me. 

These two welcomed a healthy and very happy baby BOY into this world in August. We love him to pieces already and certainly wish they lived closer for more play-dates!



Denver Lifestyle Newborn Photography - The Hardwick Family

Newborn sessions are exhausting - for everyone. But with the right amount of patience and perseverance, every session always ends on a high note!

Sweet Arya was not into having her photos taken. Like at all. She didn't want to be put down, she didn't want to close those beautiful brown eyes - it was apparent she was determined to win this battle against us. But, after several hours, she finally caved, and we were able to capture some of the most adorable images of the entire day. 

Blake and Monica, thank you for allowing me into your beautiful home to capture your sweet little peanut. Enjoy every moment with her, she is too precious not too!
