When you start by photographing a couple’s engagement and over the years their family grows, the only feeling that comes to mind is blessed. I’m so blessed to be part of something bigger! It’s honestly one of the best parts of being a photographer, the connection you make with people who quickly become friends. Isn’t human connection what we all crave? Just looking at these images makes me certain that we all want to belong and love is the glue that keeps us together. A child can bring so much joy! For Mark and Kelly that’s exactly what their little one has done. Being a blended family has it’s own set of struggles but sweet Eliott has been nothing but a bundle of joy to everyone since her birth. I am witness to the effect she has on every single member of this family. The bigger kiddos light up around her and her expressions are priceless when she looks at them! I love that this session was created at their home which makes life easy for a busy momma. I’d love to create sweet memories that capture exactly where you’re at in life. I promise the session will be fun, playful and easy. We’re all busy but don’t miss this time…their only little once. Mark and Kelly- keep growing these beautiful kiddos wild and free. I can’t wait until the next session! - Kristen -
Are you like me and seriously LOVE old town Fort Collins? Every single time I shoot here I find some cute spot to use for portraits. This family like mine is in the midst of a very busy season in life! They have 3 kiddos and 2 adult schedules on top of everything and they made the time to capture this crazy and put it into print! I believe our life is our art and art is just better shown off on our walls to be appreciated every time we stop to really look. Life is beautiful and regardless if you’re in the middle of a busy season or a peaceful new start you deserve to have your art in print! Let’s go explore and I’ll be there to watch your memories unfold and document your art! - Kristen -
You guys this family session was taken on one of the worst weather days we’ve had in October! I was almost going to cancel driving up from Fort Collins to Evergreen as the fog was engulfing my Subaru, but I kept on! Once I arrived I was so surprised by the beauty of the area. The snow and yellow leaves of the Aspen trees made for magical scenery. I swear it looked straight out of a postcard! Once we got the kiddos to laugh everything was a breeze and we all had so much fun! I’m so thankful I didn’t let a little snow and fog stop me from having one of my favorite sessions to date! I hope to see you all again next year! - Kristen-
When I met this family I knew right away we’d have a great session! Spring Canyon Park in Fort Collins was the perfect place on a warm fall afternoon for their family portrait session! I love being present watching how families interact with each other. I absolutely loved how these turned out! On site sessions that have a playground nearby are the best places for families with littles as adding this on the end can keep everyone happy and excited! There’s still time to schedule your family portraits before the snow is here to stay.
How cute is this family? I love when clients become friends and vice versa. I've had the pleasure of working with these friends for a few years. It's a beautiful thing to watch a family grow! Now their daughter is ONE and she couldn't get any sweeter! Thanks Andy & Cris for all the memories over the years- love you guys! - Kristen -
On a beautiful crisp fall day in October I drove down to meet a dear friend of mine at her horse farm. What would unfold naturally are these unique images! I felt so relaxed as I got to document her interaction with her toddler and all the farm animals. What made this so special was every human and animal was happy! I know you'll see it when you view this post they're beaming! There's something so special when we step away from technology and connect with our land, animals and most importantly the people we love. Fall in Colorado is such an awesome time of year! Enjoy! Thank you Emily for the wonderful time, you're a beautiful person inside and out
I seriously have an obsession with FALL! When you put a family like this together on a beautiful fall day in Golden, CO love is not only seen but felt. The Clear Creek History Park is the perfect place where beautiful fall colors and rustic buildings converge. I had a great time capturing these memories and truly made me miss my own family hundreds of miles away! Enjoy!
