Arabella | Newborn

Baby Arabella – you’re quite the little girl already. You’ve mastered snuggling (which I definitely enjoyed my fair share of). Your parents and pup-pal Pepe is obviously already under your spell. And those eyes. I just cannot wait to see what this life holds for you.

Welcome to the world, baby girl.

so peaceful.

i know, i know, newborns have lungs (trust me, i remember) but they also have this sense of peacefulness that somewhere along the way fades.

and this is why i love lifestyle newborn sessions.

Lauren and Charlie’s Denver Maternity Session

Maternity sessions are some one of my favorite sessions. It reminds me of the excitement & anticipation that come with the last few weeks of pregnancy. And it reminds me of that moment you meet your little one and life changes forever. In the best way possible.

Enjoy some of my favorites from Lauren and Charlie’s spring maternity session.

Shannon and Reilly’s Space Gallery Wedding

Shannon and Reilly’s wedding was something special for me.
Not only did I get to be a part of these two’s dream day, but it marked the beginning of my tenth season as a professional wedding photographer. ten years. i didn’t believe it, either, but it’s true.
ten.
woah.

Shannon and Reilly’s wedding was also something special for space gallery, as it was their first event at the brand new gallery. this venue holds a very special place in my heart. my hubs and i tied the knot at the original space gallery 3 years ago. the new gallery is just as amazing as the original. incredible, original art all around, and a fresh, airy, open space with an incredible patio. it’s the perfect spot for a denver wedding with a bit of a modern twist.

Most of all, shannon and reilly’s wedding was the perfect expression of these two and their relationship.
so many laughs,
so many friends,
so many smiles,
a few happy tears,
and lots of style!

see for yourself what an incredible day it was!

Stephanie + Matt's Denver Engagement Session

I’ve known Stephanie since high school, and since the day I met her, she’s had a smile on her face. She’s one of those people that is friends with everyone, because you just can’t not be friends with someone who is such a fun, happy person. It was such a blast to photograph Steph and her (equally as awesome) fiance Matt in Denver, freezing cold weather and all! Luna, their cute little dog, even joined in on the fun.

Enjoy some of my favorites!
