Engagement Session in Boulder Colorado; Emma + Brendan

Getting to work with Emma and Brendan for their Engagement Session was in itself a pleasure, and a lot of fun.  But for them it was also a warm up (if you will) to their upcoming Wedding and Reception in Boulder, Colorado.  Over a cup of coffee at our first wedding consultation, we got to know one another a little, as well as take a look at my portfolio… giving them the opportunity to see how I've told the stories of past clients through my photography.

Emma was hoping for snow, and while it might not have been a snowy day… there was at least a little on the ground when we met at Chautauqua Park in Boulder for the first segment of their Engagement Session.  We had coordinated meeting at a few locations; offering them the ability to not just utilize a couple of the amazing locations around Boulder, but also change outfits between locations… and of course, have their dogs with them for the first segment.

At Chautauqua Park, we had the expected amazing backdrop of the Flatirons with grassy meadows that still had evidence of the last snowfall.  And Emma and Brendan's choice of attire couldn't have been more perfect as it not only reflected who they are, but worked amazingly well for this location.  With a few minutes of posing advice before we actually began, I could already see the two of them getting more comfortable with the session.  After all, it's not about me… it's their story, and I'm just there to capture it.

As we moved on from Chautauqua, a friend of theirs met them to take care of the dogs; Brendan and I had the opportunity to talk a little more as Emma ran inside for a quick outfit change.  Then we were off for Part 2 of the Engagement Session.  Without the dogs, this segment of their session was a little more about just the two of them; the connection they share with one another.  And by this time (even with the colder weather) the two of them became extremely comfortable, and just naturals in front of the camera.

Family Lifestyle Photography Session in Boulder; Wendy

Baby boy... on the move
When Wendy contacted me, she wanted a family lifestyle photography session as her bouncing baby boy was growing quickly.  And she wanted to capture this time in their young family's life.  So on a snowy spring day in Colorado I arrived to their home to capture in photo's their family's life and story.

Just out of the tub, I got the first photos of the boys in their favorite bath time attire, and some obligatory tummy shots of the baby… well a couple, as he was learning to crawl and didn't stay put for very long.  And while Wendy got the baby dressed, her other son was quick to show me some of his favorite things.  And he called me by a childhood name, that he didn't know… but that brought back fond memories of my own childhood.

In their living room the family posed for some quick photos on the couch, and then a little airplane time… as the parents alternated getting the kids ready for the rest of the portrait session in their backyard.

Light snow flurries fell as we moved around the backyard for photo with Wendy's tulip garden, and other photos on the kids play area.  While the kids were certainly aware of me and the camera, Wendy and her husband got all of them all into their own routine, playing and letting the baby explore the new wonders of their backyard.

It's always an honor to get to photograph all of my clients, and being invited into a home gives me, as a photographer, a very unique glimpse into a family's life… and the ability to truly tell their story in photos!
