The T Family ~ Colorado Portrait Session

colorado family portrait denver lifestyle laughingNothing like a little laughter to brighten your day. Meet the Traficanti family. I first met these boys back in 2008 – hard to believe that it was seven (!) years ago. These cute little boys have grown into such fine young men – smart and engaging, creative and sweet. And still chock full of spirited giggles throughout the session. I love this family ♥ {and here’s the peek from their 2008 Colorado portrait session}

Koby & Scott ~ Family Fall Portraits

It is always such a special honor to be able to document lives as they change and evolve over time, from engagement to wedding, to becoming a family. My history with Koby & Scott dates back to 2009 when I photographed their engagement session & wedding, and then again in 2012 when they welcomed their first baby.  So when Koby contacted me recently to schedule a family portrait session that included their newest addition (a second daughter) I was beyond thrilled. It was so wonderful being able to reconnect and see the joy that they’ve created. Thank you so much for thinking of me, and congrats on your sweetest family!!

Shannon & Ty ~ Chatfield Botanic Gardens Wedding

Shannon & Ty’s wedding was nothing short of incredible. These two exude the kind of delight that is contagious, you can’t help but be swept up in their joy. It was such an honor to work with them. The barn at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield was the perfect backdrop – a blend of rustic and elegant, with long farm tables with lace overlays. I loved all of the personal touches that were incorporated throughout the day, meaningful and sweet. Perfect. A few favorites..

The space in Ponti Hall at the Denver Art Museum was breathtaking – modern and elegant, a silver color palette with accents of blue and green flowers (by the ever-talented Erin at Plum Sage Flowers). The blend of geometric patterns & shapes was artistically incorporated throughout the venue (masterfully created by Design Works) – they even suspended custom built shapes from the ceilings that were equipped with Edison lights. Spectacular.downtown denver art museum wedding details and decor geometric shapes rustic modern elegant colorado

Rachael with Intricate Icings is genius – and her cake for this wedding was a work of art.
