Broomfield Family Photography | Draco 8 Months

yearbook club

Broomfield Family Photography. The pandemic delayed this little one’s session by almost 2 months, but that just gave him time to get even cuter!  I am happy we were able to do this session before their big move.  They may have brought him home to Wildflower Street, but they recently purchased their forever home.  I […]

Denver Fresh 48 Photo, St Joseph Hospital, Clementine Kids Rainbow Swaddle

hospital newborn photography

Do y’all remember that Fresh 48 from this summer where I went to the wrong hospital?  See Emerson’s Fresh 48 Session at St. Francis Medical Center to refresh your memory.  Well he was about 3 months when I returned to Colorado Springs for this in-home family session last month.

Broomfield Colorado Maternity Photographer – Waiting for Baby Dinosaur

at-home session

Broomfield Colorado Maternity Photographer. We’ve been planning this session since spring before they even moved to Colorado. I have to love a couple who looks for their maternity/newborn photographer before they have even found a place to live.  Those are priorities I can get behind and they did not disappoint.  They are #couplegoals and #maternitysessiongoals […]

Longmont Newborn Photographer – Addie Yearbook

at-home session

Longmont Newborn Photographer. I am currently in Guam waiting for the 3rd Maltese baby to arrive, so it’s only fitting I am blogging this session of another family of 5.  This was absolutely my most chaotic session with the Woody Clan.  Addie’s big sisters just wanted to hold her and Addie just wanted to be […]
