Maternity Session with the Dollars

I’ve known Duska longer than anyone else I’m still currently in touch with, so when I get to take pictures for her family it’s always a very special occasion. They’re getting ready for baby number two and I’m so excited to meet their little one :) - Noah

100 Weddings with Simply Eloped!

We haven’t been great about posting blogs of all of our amazing couples and wedding locations, shooting all over Colorado in the wilderness and churches and backyards and amazing venues but I wanted to make sure we posted our 100th wedding with Simply Eloped!

Memory and Devin came all the way from Mississippi to the Rocky Mountains to confirm their love and devotion to each other with a beautiful ceremony and a fun photo session. My wife and I also eloped and I love providing this service to couples who are doing the same! Bigger weddings are also great and still have their place, but for those who want something smaller to start their marriage this is a great option :)

Here are the pictures we captured from Memory and Devin’s special day!

How to Have an Amazing Family Session

Family sessions can be a little tough, but when you follow these ingredients they can be smooth as butter :)

1. Relax. If you let go of your expectations for what your kids are supposed to be doing things go a lot smoother.

2. Have fun! Let's do what the kids want to do and try to get a few posed shots in between! The more fun they can have on the shoot the more likely it is they'll want to do it again sometime!

3. Positive reinforcement. AKA Bribes! It's helpful to have snacks on the shoot or have something you're going to do after the shoot to look forward to. Sometimes this doesn't work but a lot of times it does!

4. If it's a bad day, it's a bad day. We are always happy to reschedule if no-one's into doing the shoot that day. It's better not to push it if everyone's already cranky and tired.

5. Add as much love and laughter you can! We don't have to just sit around and take pictures, we can do activities like play catch or bake cookies or blow bubbles! Whatever makes it a fun shoot and creates fun and interesting photos :)

Check out this awesome family shoot we did with the Fraziers that incorporated a lot of these elements in their session.

(PS yes, we do LOVE black and white edits lol)

Scout's Fresh 48 Hospital Newborn Session | Denver, CO

Scout came a little earlier than expected but is healthy with all 10 fingers and toes! I've had the joy of working with Scout's mom and dad from their engagement session and wedding, as well as having collaborated on other photo projects. It's so great to see my client's families grow over time and I can't wait to see what happens next for these guys :)

Cameron | Downtown Denver Senior Photos

As the school year has begun we are in the middle of our season for Senior photos! We had the pleasure of photographing Cameron's older brother when he was a senior and we were so happy they decided to come back to us! We love senior photos because it's such a fun time in a young person's life! Here is a peek at Cameron's session.
