Growing up. {Denver and Golden, Colorado Family and Children Photographer}

We had planned this family session for months… and just a couple weeks before this session, I got a text. With a photo… of a little girl with such a sweet “I got in trouble” face looking into the camera with jagged bangs and a bit uneven all over and the words “She cut her own hair.” Now, I have known this family for years and years and have photographed them more times than I can count… and all I could do was smile. I smiled even more when I eventually heard the story of her mom finding little bits of hair in a trail, which she followed knowing what she would find- her daughter with a new personalized, custom hair cut.  But, I gotta tell you… there is something I love about these photos more than any other I have taken of them… because this are life moments, friends.  These photos have such a great story, about a right of passage, really.  How many parents have a story about their children giving themselves a hair cut? More than I can count.  I adore the crooked, jagged bangs. Hair grows, but these stories… these moments… these memories… well that is the good stuff. I am so glad this family could see that too and we continued with our session as scheduled.

But I sure would like to be sitting around the Christmas Tree in 30 years when they pull out the photo album and this sweet girl is all grown and her momma tells her the story…again. XO!

Love this family! <3
