I believe this was the sixth time I’ve done family portraits for this beautiful family since their oldest daughter was barely two years old. I love documenting a family’s growth through the years and providing them with images to remember many of their wonderful moments. When I photograph a family with children, I of course photograph them all together but I also photograph just the kids together, each individual child, and each child alone with each parent. I think that when each child becomes an adult they will not only cherish their family photos but will also cherish the images they have of just themselves with their mother or father. These images prove to be intimate and memorable and express the feelings they shared for each other in their young lives. I also make sure to do a portrait of just mom and dad together. These portraits were done on campus in Boulder, Colorado.
