I reunited with the Church family for a fun family session at the barn in Parker. “Fun” because they always bring it. The last time we did family pics, we met off the Highline Canal — climbing around old horse jumps while sporting Da Bears gear. Still the same crew a few years later – loose, free and full of laughs. Wesley is a ham – must get it from somewhere – and hung back with me for a quick and FUNNY portrait shoot. O my goodness!
What a fun morning! I had waited a good while to meet Birdie – and she was SO worth the wait. I met up with Steven and Heather over by Coors Field and we decided to find some spots around RiNo (River North Art District.) Birdie had a blast with all the bright colors and cool designs. She ran, she jumped, she splashed, she danced….she most certainly laughed, and then she crashed. Mom and dad *hopefully* got a little nap in too!
Happy to know you Hughes family. I can’t wait to watch this little Birdie grow and get a few shots of her growing heart in the years to come.
The Clark’s wanted to venture out to Serenbe Farms for their family photos. We started over by Hills and Hamlets bookstore so Josiah could check out the forts, bridges and timber-tepees. He heard about the donkeys over near the labyrinth…and yes, he asked that I made sure to get a donkey in the photo (I kept my word – see below.) I’m sure Jessica and Cody will have some explaining to do as Lydia grows up and comes across these photos over the years!
The way this session came about, the soft sunlight, the bright green scenery and fields covered in rainbows of flowers – all together made for one amazing afternoon, for Kate and for me. I met Kate’s family over 8 years ago when I decided to start a photography business. Her family was one of my first official family portrait sessions. Kate must have been ten or eleven. I had talked *hopefully* over the years of doing her senior portraits when it came time, but there’s always so many turns in life, you just never know.
Earlier this summer I came across one of my old postcard ads with a photo of Kate’s younger sister. It prompted me to reach out to Kate’s mom and say hello. Within a couple hours she wrote me back – her and Kate had just been discussing senior photo options and packages. They knew I moved to Atlanta…but they didn’t know I was headed back for some time up at my cabin. Long –> short, they had about a 10 day window for her portraits, and I had booked my cabin stay over the same time. We discussed a few details and fate sealed the deal.
Some moments (and some photographs) are simply meant to be.
…Kate, hoping you’ll smile wide over the last photos on this post. I sure did – we’ve both grown!
