Everyday storytelling. {Denver and Golden, CO Family and Children’s Photographer}

I often get asked where I like to shoot the most. And I gotta tell you, it surprises people when I say “in your home.” Nothing beats capturing a family caught up in a fit of laughter while sitting in their very own living room,  or new parents fully immersed in a new baby snuggle fest in the nursery of their first born or a game of tackle in the backyard. Gah! I love this kind of stuff. There is just something so magical to me when I get the opportunity to capture a family… being their unique, perfectly imperfect, family… in an environment that holds so many memories.

… and just to throw it out there…because I get questions about it – all the time. Forget about the mess. My house is messy too. Forget about the renovation you wish you could do. Man, not gonna lie…I wish I could update a few things too! I totally get it! But I am gonna look you in the eye anyway and say – Let. It. Go. It doesn’t matter!  And let’s just capture the important stuff… focus on the giggle-smiles, and games of hide and seek, first steps, the water fights and the world of wonder in a world of bubbles. Whatever it is that when you get a pause from the chaos (insert miracle), and you see your children across the room imagining they are pirates, or doing their math homework or playing in the tub and think… dang, I don’t want to forget this. Let’s capture it! I would love to come knocking on your door.

Everyday goodness. I tell ya. Speaking of that… check out this family. Love them! And please make it to the end of the post… cuz, ya see, I was able to capture one of my most favorite photos EVER! Make my momma proud, kind of image. Cheerios, toddler, highchair, begging dog. Ok, enough said… go check it out. <3




And this image below… yea, it’s a favorite. It ranks right up there with one of my most favorite photos ever. Besides the fact Cheerios should use this sweet duo for their next Ad. 😀 General Mills, you know where to find me!
