{Spring Mini-Sessions} Colorado Springs Lifestyle Photographer

I was feeling uber inspired last Spring & thought…what the heck; I should just put my “feelers” out there on Social media & see who might be interested in Spring Mini’s. Well, I had NO IDEA how much it would blow up!!! It was such a HUGE SUCCESS…I think I will definitely be adding it to my list of “annual must do’s.” Originally, I had planned on offering them inside a local greenhouse nursery, but as it turns out, the one I checked out in weeks prior with my daughter was MUCH TOO SMALL to hold all of the families I was going to be photographing, so pretty last minute, I changed the location to Monument Valley Park & it did NOT disappoint. The buds were blooming on the weeping willow trees, grass was green, water was sparkling & sun was out. I couldn’t have been more blessed on this particular weekend!!! Everything was perfect. Most of all——by the awesome families & couples that came to see me. All smiles, laughs & good times!!! Check out a handful of my favorite shots!

ALSO…don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled again this Spring…as My Mini-Sessions that I periodically offer, are run as SPECIALS & only offered at limited times & in limited quantity. Sign ups will be by e-mail appointment only & full deposit is now required in advance. Don’t miss out…they go FAST!!!

{The Huston Sisters} Colorado Springs Family Portrait Photographer

Yes, these girls have braved ALL kinds of weather with me over the years...torrential down-pour (of course we rescheduled that one.;), hurricane winds, bone-chilling temps, blizzard. We have YET to have a perfectly beautiful warm summer day. Ha! I'm waiting, certainly we are overdue. Michelle; their awesome mama is always willing & trusting to meet me anywhere too. She gets her girls the most beautiful outfits & drives down from Denver. These sweet sisters really do love each other just like you see in the photos. One of the reasons I love working with them. They follow direction well, put up with my antics & are so so sweet. Here is another one for the books. Enjoy a peek!!! =)

Valentine's Mini-Sessions

Since I don't regularly offer Mini-Sessions; these Valentine's minis were sooo fun to plan & then see come to fruition. I had dreamt about putting a bed fully covered with dreamy linens & throw pillows out in the middle of an open field forever. Add a bunch of darling children & ba-BAM!!! I offered the sign-ups for two different Saturdays this time...ironically the first Saturday was snowy & cold, the second Saturday was sunny & 70: two complete extremes!!! Either way, they all turned out just darling & I am tempted to get creative again with the bed theme...different seasons. Hmmm...??? Until then...check out pics from these SWEET Minis!!!
