Family Photo Fun! {Denver and Golden, CO Family and Children’s Photographer}

Meet the Oakley’s! Easy going, up for anything… and fun! But, this is no surprise!

The Oakley’s were given a Kate Borgelt Photography gift certificate from a good friend of theirs… and, actually, this good friend of theirs – is a good friend of mine… and was the first person I met when I moved to Denver in 2001! And she is just as easy-going, up for anything … and just plain great too! So, like I said – it was no surprise that I immediately loved the Oakley family. True. And True.

Enter the time machine…..

In 2001, I moved out to Denver from Chicago. After several years, I had finally quit the “get dressed up in a suit everyday, wear lipstick and carry a briefcase” PR job that wasn’t everything I thought it might be – and was heading WEST! I didn’t have a job, but a huge hope to work for the outdoor industry. (I DID end up working for Outward Bound for 10 years! So I guess that part worked out too!) But, I didn’t know anyone when I arrived… and well, a friend who was in town for the weekend and knew I had just moved to Denver said “Hey, you should come out with a bunch of my friends tonight!” So, I did. And as it would go… I sat next to Kristen Moreland. Sassy. Funny. Down to Earth… and just my style.

I went home after a fun night on the town with this group of great people and called the guy I was dating long-distance (I call him my husband now! smile!)… and said, “I met a great girl tonight. I know it sounds lame, but I hope we become friends! I hope she calls!” He laughed, but we have all been there… new to town, trying to find great girlfriends!… BUT low and behold… she did call and we are still friends today. YAY! I don’t see her as much as I would like… but I think that is how it goes sometimes with people you call “good friends!”

I know that was the long way around to introduce you to the Oakley’s… but that is how we got here. First person I met in Denver. Became Friends. Stayed friends. Gift Certificate. THE OAKLEY’S!

Well, I met the Oakley’s on one of the recent gorgeous days that we have had this spring and had some photo fun! Thanks guys for everything… I think we should get Moreland… and all grab a drink! Fun!….and Kaleb, it was so fun to be a part of your Birth- DAY! You wear 5 years old, like a pro!



ps- I just realized that I posted a lot of B&W images for no apparent reason… hmm. I must be in a B&W mood. 🙂

Our pastor, Rev. Strickhausen, spoke a litlte about our Ecuador mission this past Sunday. He was very touched by the perfect music you chose and he incorported the words of With My Own Two Hands into his sermon. Your work is blessing so many, Kate. Just wanted to share that with you. May God continue to bless you and those who view your work.
