I was so excited when Jackie brought up the idea of doing their family’s Christmas card session at a tree lot in Centennial! Jackie called and coordinated with the lot and they were just great about us doing a quick session. We just tried to stay out of paying customer’s way! I have to say that the pictures turned out even better than I thought they would at this cute little pop up Christmas Tree lot down in Centennial. This family is so adorable and I love their outfit coordination! Thanks for letting me capture this sweet and fun season of your life!

Let me start off by saying that John + Christine do cuddling in photos REALLY well. I loved capturing there sweetness as a couple during this session. I have affectionally referred to them as “the Bickers” for years so it is funny to switch to calling them by their first names! I admire and love these two’s faithfulness and steadiness. They are a couple you can count on and they serve and love others so well. I can’t say enough nice things about them! I also love their relationship and how they interact with one another, it is such a picture to others of how a strong and loving marriage rooted in Christ looks. I am thankful for that!
To get personal for a minute - last summer Christine and I met to talk budgets (something my husband and I are super passionate about). I gave her all my advice and keys to maintaining a budget that makes sense for each family that is also easy to manage. She just ate it up as a fellow CPA. A few months later she told me she had taken everything we discussed and wrote detailed notes and was able to teach and train her family how to maintain their personal budgets as well! She just encouraged me how I have left an impact on others by sharing how financial stewardship is important and training someone how Ben and I do this on a regular basis! Thank you Christine, that was very encouraging to me!
One of my other favorite memories was staying up with her until 4:30 in the morning at a women’s retreat last year because we had SO much to talk about. I finally had to go to sleep because I wasn’t making sense anymore!!
This is Laura. One of my best friends and also my Brand Consultant, Logo Designer, & the person I run all my business questions and ideas by because she is also a small business owner and I trust and value her opinion! It has been so fun to have someone to meet with regularly and to bounce ideas off of with each other and encourage one another. We met at White Whale Room to snap some shots for her creative branding session and to use on her website and Instagram. We had so much fun capturing her personality and her in her element. Branding is such an intimate process when you are starting your business because you tell all your big ideas and dreams to someone. There is NO ONE I would rather have done this process with and I truly enjoyed working on our businesses together. This session was really designed so that Laura could communicate to her current and potential clients who she is on a regular basis. Branding is a relational process and we wanted to capture this in these photos.
Laura is a student at Denver Seminary studying to become a licensed counselor and I love how she always asks me heart level questions in our friendship as well as our meetings for business. She is a gem and I am thankful we have become such close friends this past year. If you are looking to start a business or rebrand you should definitely reach out to Laura. Her process is integrative and thought provoking and is one of the best investments you can do for your business!
A few months ago I did an interiors shoot at my home and commissioned my friend, Sarah of Blomst Floral, to make a floral table runner and arrangement to spruce up my home. She is so talented and really made my vision come to life. We did this shoot in late April so the florals were a perfect spring color palette that really got me excited for the new season ahead. She adds so much dimension and texture to her arrangements that is really fun! Head over to her blog and check her out! She primarily focuses on weddings, events and seasonal florals.
In November of 2017, our good friends Isaac and Annie welcomed their first baby into this world! We prayed for this sweet girl and waited expectantly for her to arrive right after Thanksgiving! Sweet Honor Rose. It has been a privilege to get to spend so much time with this sweet girl. This is a little mini session from their wedding anniversary evening when Ben and I had the privilege of babysitting her, while her parents celebrated their anniversary! Since then these friends have moved back to Chicago and we miss them dearly. We miss them walking to our house weekly, snuggling Elly, their laughs, and kissing on baby Honor. It was hard to say goodbye and bittersweet for us. Love y'all!
