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!

These two are some of our closest friends! Clint and Ben have been friends since middle school and he is a part of the crew that goes to annual Cowboys games around the country (this year is their 12th annual trip)! When they told us in March of 2017 that they were moving to Denver, we were ecstatic! Then earlier this year they closed on a house 2 blocks from us!!! It has been so sweet to walk over and hang out any time we want! We are so thankful to have these two in our lives. In August, we went up to our cabin and adventured around Fairplay for these sweet shots. These two are so lovable and you can tell they really love each other. It is so sweet to witness. Last month they got engaged in the Netherlands! I can’t wait to celebrate these two getting hitched!
P.S. The adorable hound in these photos is Molly. Let me tell ya she loves her parents!!
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!!
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!
This is my sweet niece, Mia! She is my oldest niece and the first one to make me an aunt! I can't believe how fast time goes and that she is an 8th grader this year! She has the sweetest spirit and just truly loves being a gymnast! Anytime we are together, she is practicing her technique and I love to watch her. She is truly gifted. Mia and I just tend to get each other and gravitate towards one another on our family trips. I have always called her my mini me. I love just listening to her tell me stories and talking about things together. Her maturity stands out to me and her confidence as a young woman. I can't wait for you to see her talent in these photos. We spent a week together at the beach for my sister's wedding in late May and were able to do a few sessions on the beach. One time we woke up at 7 am and ran to the beach to try to beat the sunshine and heat but as you can tell below that Florida sunshine is always beaming! I love these memories.
