Sarah + Gerrilyn · Mother + Daughter Portraits · New Castle, Colorado

This was a very special session to do because this beautiful mother and daughter are two of my dear friends. To say that capturing their relationship in photos is dear to my heart is an understatement. I absolutely adore the love and friendship that they share and I tried to do my best to capture it authentically.
They came to visit the mountains on a whim and we had a magical time exploring. From Crystal Mill surrounded by golden leaves, to walking along West Elk Creek near my house in between canyons, to watching waterfalls flowing at Rifle Falls State Park, we enjoyed every moment together!
There's just so much love here in this session and I'm excited to share it with y'all!

Batey Sisters - Portrait Session · Cle Elum, Washington · Portrait Photographer

One of the things on todays to do list is to write a blog post. So, cheers to checking off items on to do lists!

I'm jumping right into this one. My step dad has a huge family and I really mean huuuuuuuuuuge family. And its incredible how much effort the family puts into the family reunions that they have every 4 years. I've been to 3 of the reunions now and theres no way I've been able to talk with everyone. There are just so. many. people! My step dad has something around 32 first cousins. And thats just one part of the family. Its so impressive how many people turn up for the reunions. And its always a blast, you get to meet family you've never met, eat dinners together, play games and participate in a range of planned activities.

These family reunions are hosted in gorgeous locations, for example the first one I attended was in Whitefish, Montana and the second I attended was in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The one that we attended in July was in Cle Elum, Washington. Although I didn't carry my camera whole lot during the activities of the reunion, I managed to do a few small portrait sessions throughout the reunion. The one I'll be showing you today is of two beautiful sisters, Piper and Sissel. I just had to take advantage of this gorgeous golden hour light that was filtering through the trees while we were all having dinner.



Caitlin - Maternity · 30A Santa Rosa Beach, Florida · Family Portrait Photographer

Hey y'all! As always, I'm bad about keeping up on the blog but I really am doing better. I think this is my 4th post this summer compared the very few I've done for the last few years. Although I'm actively shooting, my website doesn't reflect that. And thats definitely a huge goal of mine right now. I'm actually going to try to do a few posts today and tomorrow because I have so many from this summer I want to share!!
So this first one is from May, my friend Caitlin saw I was visiting Florida and hit me up to schedule a shoot with her and her cute little family.
Caitlin's boyfriend Cody and their daughter Corinne (C, C & C, the cutest! and their new little one is Clover) joined us for a cute maternity shoot, starting at Eden State Gardens and then we moved down to the beach to finish up... because if you know anything about northwest Florida in May, you know what yellow flies and mosquitos do toward the end of the day and we just couldn't handle being at the gardens for too long.
Aaaaaand here is where I say, yay! I live in Colorado and don't have to deal with that on a daily basis, hahah. Shameless Colorado promotion here, folks. Don't get me wrong though, I love Florida. I love the foliage, the wacky people, the beach, the salty wind, the food... it's always going to be my home.

Anyway, thats enough of me rambling.. catch more of my rambling on my next post! Now, to share some of my favorites from my shoot with this precious family.

Ruby {1 Year} || Orange Beach, Alabama Portrait Photographer

Hello everyone!

My family has this awesome beach house in Gulf Shores, Alabama and once a year over the summer my family and I spend some time there! While we were there it was also my little cousin Ruby's 1st birthday! So I decided to take some 1 year photos of her on the beach.

Baby Georgia {3 Month Photo Session} || Santa Rosa Beach, Florida Portrait Photographer

Hello friends!

A few weeks ago I shot Rebecca and Murray's beautiful wedding, and after that they asked me to take photos of their precious baby girl, Georgia! As you'll soon see she is absolutely gorgeous.

I love taking photos of adorable little ones, and I'm so happy that I get to be a part of capturing Georgia growing up for this happy, beautiful family.
