{The Lewis Family} Colorado Springs Lifestyle Family Photographer

I was thrilled when I dropped down into the Springs from Monument to see the sun & blue skies on my way to this photoshoot. I’m telling you it’s two different worlds & often I struggle to know what the weather pattern holds for me as I travel here & there for my sessions. Each season bringing different challenges. Ha! I’m always up for a good challenge & God is always good to be faithful for what I need.

I adore this gorgeous little family & look forward to seeing them every year. Monique is perfectly stunning in every way & always does an outstanding job dressing her crew accordingly. I told her on Saturday that she totally inspires me with her CrossFit posts…she’s in killer shape & super strong for such a tiny little frame. She’s 100% in love with those sweet boys in her life & I love watching her love on them. There is such a real & genuine connection in every frame. Not much could make me much happier on this day…the Cherry Blossoms were in full SPRING (see what I did there?!);) and the sun was out. I love my job & I can’t wait for busy season. BRING IT ON!!!

{Sarah & Tony} Colorado Springs Engagement Photographer

I wrote this amazing long, thoughtful blog post & then it got erased!!! Ugh…it’s a Wednesday that feels more like a Monday around here.

I took Sarah’s High School Senior Portraits just 2 short years ago & now she’s engaged to be married!!! Oh my, time does move quickly. When Sarah contacted me about engagement photos, she noted 2 things: 1.) she wanted a rural session & a barn if possible and 2.) a sunrise session. I immediately began scouring for a new location that would include Spring Cherry Blossoms & indeed a rustic charming Barn. I knew we were just a tad bit early for blossoms in the Springs, but maybe not Pueblo. So I contacted my friend, Hosanna, who lives down south & she had all kinds of fabulous connections for us…a beautiful park filled with Cherry Blossoms & an entire Farm including: turkeys, cows, sheep, goats, horses, ponies & indeed a charming & rustic white barn. I was sooo excited, I could hardly wait to tell Sarah!!! Now…about the SUNRISE part. I am NOT a morning person, but I’ve always offered sunrise & sunset sessions, I’ve just had never had anyone take me up on the Sunrise offer. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always wanted to do one, I’ve just never had anyone ask to do one before, so to my surprise I was in for quite a treat. Setting my alarm for 4:45am. Eeek! That wasn’t fun, but nothing a little Starbucks couldn’t fix on the drive down.;) The only disappointing part to this day was that after all the planning, driving, waking up early, there was NO sunrise. It was a cool, and by cool, I really mean freezing, cloudy Spring day!!! So, I guess I’ll have to add it back on my bucketlist. ;) It’s ok because Sarah & Tony didn’t mind one bit. They were just happy to be there & capturing their love. We had a blast (freezing our butts off & laughing at all the crazy animals & the slight “stench” in the Pueblo air.;)

P.S. The order of these images is all out of wack…I apologize in advance, but my blog is giving me issues.
