This is where I share more of my weddings, engagement, portrait and lifestyle sessions along with some behind-the-scenes of all the magic.  When I'm not working I'm still taking my camera around with me to document the travels, my family, and life as I see it.

2019: A Year in Review


fine+art+photographer+colorado

As we leap into the new year, we’re quick to focus on what is to come–setting intentions, curating resolutions, giving our imagination to all that awaits.  But in our enthusiasm for the unknown we overlook a simple truth–the beginning of a new year marks the end of another. And while we face the lure of what’s to come, so too do we have an imperative to take a pause and reflect on the many moments that shaped a year of experience.  On this new year holiday, before I take the leap forward, I’m taking a step back to focus on every milestone, celebration, intention, and victory from my 2019 year.

We started off the 2019 year by remodeling our home.
We wanted create an opened and relaxing environment to raise our family. I also wanted a work space that allowed my creativity + inspiration to thrive.

After months of trying, we found out we were pregnant and expecting baby #2.
And what were the odds that we conceived yet again on June 25th.

June 25, 2017: Our first baby’s due date but ultimately led to a miscarriage
June 25, 2017: Conceived baby June
June 25, 2019: Conceived baby #2


What I hoped to look like during the entire pregnancy.

But what I really looked like during this pregnancy. Morning sickness shook my world.

Wow. I didn’t think I’d be as emotional as I am now as I put this blog post together. Reflecting on all the relationships I’ve created and all the people I’ve met over the last year as I documented their love story (whether with their loved one or for their craft) is truly so incredibly humbling. I am so grateful for every single one of you that took faith in me and what I do. Thank you for my 2019! It’s been such an honor.

xo,
