A few weeks ago, we had more amazing company. Our old friends Melanie & Greg showed up for a quick weekend visit with their great friends Robyn & Glenn. To say we had an amazing time seeing them really is an injustice. We shot their wedding many years ago, I think almost 10 years ago…and we were all in the same places in our lives, so we also developed a great friendship with them. They are seriously two of the most loving and amazing people we’ve ever know. Such supportive friends and just really doing super cool adventures in life. They and their awesome friends made time for portrait shoots and I’ll be blogging Robyn & Glenn next week. I can’t tell you how happy it makes my heart to know how happy they are. Their love has just become even more incredible with age. Seeing them just made me miss them 100 times more. But man was it an awesome, fun visit!! Mel & Greg, come back soon!! Just a couple quick pics…but truly, there were so many I loved.
It has been a crazy summer. So much fun in just a short period of time; I’m really going to miss summer this year.
It’s also been an extremely special summer; I was lucky enough to photograph the families of several friends this summer and lots of headshots. One, my former coworker, Jason and his beautiful daughter Liv, and another, my best friend from the fourth grade, Devon and her beautiful family and lastly my amazingly beautiful friend Jamie and her adorable family. I’ve been photographing Jamie’s family for years and I cannot get over how grown up the kids are now. They were just so little when I first began to photograph them. Sigh…. It was beyond a blessing to cross paths with these old friends this summer but besides that, I’ve been photographing so many amazing families. 22 shoots in four weeks. Some of them are becoming old friends too as I’ve been shooting them year after year, and some are new friends!
This blog post is just a handful of those shoots, but I wanted to share. It’s been a whirlwind this summer, but a summer of incredible people and photos is my kind of summer. Love to all of these beautiful families!
A few weeks ago during my last Vegas shooting trip, I had a super fun time photographing one of my favorite families; the Viado family. I first met them when we photographed Lourdes & Brian’s engagement photos, and then their adorable son Jace’s baby photos. Soon after her sister Cari met this amazing man named Geofrey and they were married and welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Zenyatta. And this time, I was lucky enough to photograph not only, Cari, Geofrey, Zen, Lourdes, Brian and Jace, but also their extended immediate family and Geofrey’s sister and son. It was a super fun time because I just love how happy this family is. They’re always so joyous and filled with laughter it never feels like work. And in my mind, I really believe the photos show it!! That love for them translates into amazingly beautiful photos.
Last weekend it was SUPER COLD!! But–I had an awesome time photographing one of my favorite families in the aspens!!
Lisa has been my daughter’s swim coach since she was six months old. She and her husband Dean and their daughter Addilyn have become like family to us. Their super warm and loving nature just really makes my family love her family even more. So when she asked me to do family photos for this adorable family, I was like ” YES YES YES!!”” So excited to give them something beautiful for their home to document this wonderful time in their lives while Addilyn is still little.
The bonus was that Grandma & Grandpa joined us and I just love them too! And Addilyn was like a little adorable baby model! As was their svelt and graceful pup Claire!:)
A few weeks ago, our friends Allyson & Ryan became mommy & daddy. With the arrival of little baby Campbell, it’s been wonderful to see them loving her. It’s been a super fun journey with them over the past four years, in getting to know them, becoming great friends and now, the hopes of our little girls growing up together and being best friends. I was really glad to share this experience with them and also photograph little Campbell. She’s a little adorable peanut. Such a cute little baby, and so perfect. Hard not to love her:). Allyson & Ryan, we know you’re going to be amazing parents and having this much love in your lives will change you forever. Love all of you!!
