I heard about this young woman, Savannah, before she was even born…and evidently I knew her mom, Jessie, before I was born! Jessie and my mom were both pregnant at the same time and new to Colorado as their husbands were to be playing for the Denver Broncos in the fall of 1977. Long short, Jessie and I spent our early years together but after a few moves and life changes, we didn’t see one another until we were in our late twenties. That’s when destiny brought us back together and I heard Savannah was on her way!
I’ve been blessed to watch Savannah grow up (and get taller too) over the last twelve years and be a part of Jessie’s heart expanding even more as her daughter gets older. They met me in north Parker on a strip of the Cherry Creek Trail and we strolled around finding soft sun and yellow flowers. I enjoyed the mother-daughter moments through the lens and also taking Savannah’s hand down into the flower beds for some off-trail adventures. She did great and we managed to get a good number of giggles out of the almost-teenager.
After Marianna officially accepted Ahmed’s proposal, they scheduled some photos at Ponce City Market and then we ventured down to Fayetteville to for some green-shots. I didn’t do much at all but hold up my camera and catch them talking or laughing with one another… It was so causal and light – I really just followed them around through Ponce. Later that evening we met up near my place and got some sweet shots south of the city. There’s always so much planning and preparing to do for a wedding, but this day was breezy and smooth. Thanks for letting me be a part of it Ahmed and Marianna!
Amelia’s first official family photo session – the sun was perfect and the breeze came at all the right times. Townes’ and I had fun wondering around the golf course in the little field patches. Dad got inspired to do a few shots of just the boys, and of course we got a little girl snuggle time in too with mom and Amelia. It’s been special watching Townes grow and change…I am looking forward to watching the relationship develop between him and his new sister. His heart is so big already – it will pour all over that new little one!
