Settled back into a routine in Denver & LOVING this random weather & sunny days… two days ago we had an almost 80 degree day, and then yesterday we got almost 3 inches of snow!  Now it’s sunny, almost 50 & most of the snow has melted away.  Classic Colorado.  I love it.

I took some more pictures for this sweet family while I took their little Miah’s one year photos the same day, and what a beautiful day it was!  I’m so glad we got to enjoy the sun during my last shoot before leaving for Oregon & having most of my shoots there canceled because of the rain. :(  Not really surprised, considering I grew up there, but didn’t make it any less disappointing!

But no use focusing on rainy days when we got so many lovely pictures from the Smith family shoot!  Enjoy!

Even though it’s still brown around here, you can’t beat the Colorado sunshine!

We met Seth & Christi at the conference we went to a few weeks back for NFL Players & their wives, and WHAT.AN.ADORABLE.FAMILY.  seriously.  Their son Rylan is the most precious little bundle of sweetness I’ve ever seen.  And check out all their baby blues!  It was so fun to meet another couple who were once with the Denver Broncos & are now with another team (Vikings,) but loved Denver so much they made their home here also! :)

And of course their family pictures had to include their other “kids”!  Meet Copper, Charlie & Boomer:

Thanks for the wonderful day Olsen Fam!!

I met Reagan in one of my photography classes awhile back, and we just instantly clicked.  She’s also a redhead, passionate about photography & food, and so easy to carry on a conversation with.  She’s got THEE most infectious smile & laugh I’ve ever seen.  Unfortunately about 8 months ago she moved quite a bit further away, so we haven’t seen each other for quite awhile & it was fun to catch up while I captured some uber fun & sweet moments between her & the men in her life.

One of her sons slipped on the snow & needed a little TLC… but a piggyback ride made it all better!!

Thanks for a wonderful day Geddes Family!!

My dear friend Julie has the three cutest kids.  With huge eyes & lashes that could land them a job with Latisse at the age of four.  We had a fun little shoot out in their backyard in Castle Rock, CO & they melted my heart with their precious smiles & again, those perfect lashes.

I’m off to Portland, Oregon in a couple of weeks to visit my family for Thanksgiving, and I’ve got loads of family shoots scheduled already!  Bring on the hugs, smiles, giggles & OH the giving of thanks!!  So much to be thankful for. :)
