Family Portrait #6

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.

Newborn Photography

I had a really fun newborn portrait and family photography session in my Boulder studio a few months ago. I did a combination of just the baby, the baby with each family member, the family all together and some macro images of baby parts – a must have with newborn photography sessions. This little guy gave us some great opportunities to capture images of him sleeping and being fully awake.

Fun in the Fall

This was my third family portrait session with this Boulder family and as usual, there were lots of laughs, playing and tail wagging. One of the best things about family photography is seeing families time and again and seeing how quickly their children grow. We had a perfect fall day full of colorful leaves to play with and to use for a beautiful background.

Family Portraits on the Mesa

Here are a few of my favorite images from a recent family portrait session I did at Davidson Mesa in Louisville, Colorado. If you go up there in the mid to late afternoon, the light from the west is blinding.  But wait just a little while, for the sun to tuck behind the mountains and it’s magical!  I had such a good time photographing this family and oohing and aahing over the light and colors of the sky.  The kids, and the dog, had a great time running around on the path and playing in the tall, dry grasses – and playing with mom and dad while I took lifestyle photos. I liked this photo location so much that I recently took my own family there for our family photos. That’ll be another blog post soon.

A Toddler, A Dog and Twins

I had another action packed portrait session with this family recently in Boulder.  Their twin boys are now over a year old and their oldest child is just over three.  The dog Caribe is now eleven. The kids’ parents and I chased them around the front yard for an hour and a half capturing images of them at play. This was a good combination of a family portrait and a lifestyle session in which you photograph a family doing things together, rather than posing for photographs. I think these make great, memorable images to be enjoyed for years to come.  Even if they just remind you of how tired you were after the photo session!

The More the Merrier!

This family and pet portrait session shows that you can’t have too much love in the house! Dixie and Mike are parents to three lovely adult girls and eight dogs of all ages which means lots of dog walking and sloppy kisses. From small to large, shy to outgoing, the personalities among dogs was varied in great ways!  I made lots of loud noises while my assistant danced behind me to get everyone’s attention for our group photo. We successfully created a large family portrait to be remembered forever. Note: Sadly, since this session, the two Yorkies, Portia and Lucy passed away.  Hopefully the photos will help to bring some comfort.Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1053Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1054Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1055Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1056Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1057Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1058Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1059Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1060Pet-Dog-Photography-Boulder-2014-1061

Growing Families

Jax, a bouncing baby boy, joined his three sisters for the family’s annual photo session in Boulder. The girls had a great time showing off their new baby brother and just being silly for a few of their own portraits.  Over the years, each girl has taken turns doing a “tea party” photo using the same tea party table and chairs that their mother was photographed with when she was a girl.  I’ve included a couple of these precious images!

Capturing the Bond.

On a recent pet portrait session, my goal was to capture the bond between Lyn and her best friend Lizzy and to also create an image in silhouette. The bond was obvious and could not be denied!  I was also lucky enough to have an amazing sunset and was able to get a silhouette showing their bond.2016-0621-109233-sm2016-0621-1017-sm2016-0621-116441-sm2016-0621-113938-x-sm2016-0621-1169-sm2016-0621-1040-sm2016-0621-1176-sm2016-0621-1006-sm2016-0621-114839-sm

Toddler Plus Two!

First I photographed the engagement session, then I photographed the wedding, and then the pregnancy. And then I photographed Luke as a newborn and again at three months, six months, nine months and at age one – blueberry pie include! (see photo at the end of this post).  Now Luke has two beautiful baby brothers who I had a great time photographing as newborns and again at eight months. Newborn photography and children’s photography is always lots of fun, but it is double the fun when I get to photograph them over and over again as they grow. Soon I will post their latest photos, taken recently, now that the twins are over a year old. Which means there was lots of running and chasing going on!

Annual Family Portraits

Taking just a little time each year for an annual family portrait is a great way to keep your photo albums up to date and to record the growth of your family.  Time goes by so quickly and your little ones will be grown before you know it.  Being able to look back at these visual reminders later in life will prove to be worthwhile.  So, if it is time for your family photography session in Boulder, or other places nearby, hurry up and give us a call!
