Declan: 7 Days || Castle Rock Newborn Photographer

I was so excited to have mister Declan in the studio for his newborn session. He is such a little sweetie. I don't think he made a peep the entire session. He just loves to be cuddled, and I'm pretty sure he's already a little momma's boy. It is way too precious. I loved seeing how much his big brother already is so crazy about him. You can tell they are going to have a really special relationship.

Declan is so handsome, and just looked so precious in every setup we did. I hope to have the opportunity to photograph this family and little Declan more in the near future!

Gwendolyn 1 Year || Castle Rock Baby Photographer

2013 flew by! I could not believe it when Gwendolyn was already turning one! Wasn't it just last week that we did her newborn session, or at least her 6 month session?

I always love photographing little Gwendolyn.  She has such a sweet and fun personality, and it always shines through in her sessions.  Her mom brought a colorful tutu for Gwen that fit her personality so well.   

I loved being able to photograph Gwen with the quilt her mom made for her again... it is so fun to have the comparison images. 

Of course we had to end her session with a little cake smash, and this girl loved her cake!  So adorable!

It has been so much fun watching Gwen grow up this past year, and I can't wait to watch her grow even more through her toddler years!

Breanna || Castle Rock Maternity Photographer

I had so much fun photographing Breanna's maternity session this past week. Breanna and her husband Jeff were so much fun, and made my job so easy!

One of the best parts of my job is having the opportunity to meet such wonderful people that I may not have met otherwise. Breanna and Jeff are no exception. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet these two and be a part of this exciting time in their lives.

Breanna and Jeff are waiting to find out the gender of their baby until their baby shower this weekend. Everyone at their shower knows, but them, which I think will be so much fun! I am so excited to find out what this little one will be! Breanna and Jeff are going to be such wonderful parents - I can tell they are crazy about their precious baby already!

I cannot wait to meet their bundle of joy in just a few more weeks!

Ryan & Chantel || Wedding at Boettcher Mansion

Happy New Year!  It's been a little bit of a quiet past few weeks for us, with our move to Castle Rock, Christmas, and not having internet due to the move.  Everything is back in full swing for the month of January, and we are excited to start out the month sharing a spectacular winter wedding from December!

Scott and I finished out our year with Ryan and Chantel's beautiful wedding at Boettcher Mansion.  This was a wonderful wedding to finish the year.  These two are such a fun and sweet couple, and they had such a wonderful bridal party as well.

Chantel was just exquisite.

I know I've said it before, but I just love the Father/Daughter moments that Scott captures just before they come down the aisle.

Boettcher Mansion created such a cozy, intimate setting for their ceremony - it was beautiful.  The two of them wrote their own vows, which were so sweet and heartfelt.  We always love it when a couple chooses to write their own vows.

This venue has incredible grounds for photos, and we got some beautiful shots.  As mentioned, they had an awesome bridal party and they were a blast to photograph - they were up for anything, which always makes our job a blast!

Ryan and Chantel are just perfect together and so easy to photograph - not to mention such a good-looking couple.  They are just natural together, and their love is so evident in all of these images.

Their wedding reception was such a celebration and full of joy.

Ryan and Chantel, thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special day.  We pray the two of you enjoy many, many years of wedded bliss, and that God blesses your marriage abundantly.  You are such a sweet and genuine couple and we are honored to know you two. Congratulations!
