Webb Family 2016

2016webb-9

This family is one of my all time favorites and I love getting together with them every fall for a little family session. Avon and Paxton are both really different from one another but have that awesome brotherly bond that’s fun to see.  I’ve gotten to watch these two grow up over the years and this was the first year they really felt like ‘big boys’ instead of the little boys of the past.  It’s gotten tougher to elicit genuine smiles out them the older they get, so I did resort to some immature bathroom humor to get things going.  I’m experienced in that as I have three younger brothers.  I’m not ashamed.  : )

I love Paxton’s face in the one above.  That’s how most kids feel about photos!

They’re pretty adorable if you ask me.  Thanks for another fun morning Webb family!

McQuown Family 2016

2016mcquown-18The peak of fall had passed by the time I got together with this cute little family so, prior to meeting, I traversed Denver far and wide to find some fall color.  This spot was totally random, and on the side of a busy road, but we made it work!  2016mcquown-192016mcquown-42

Little Royal has gotten so big since the last time I took photos of him!  He’s quickly turning into a little man.

K/W Wedding

On a perfect fall morning in October, I ran a pen and paper up to a bride as she needed to write her vows and had forgotten supplies.  She opened the door to her beautiful room and was red and puffy with tears (the happy kind) running down her face.  “What are you doing?!” I asked as I noticed the weepy music playing, candles burning and overall dramatic feel of the room.  She just laughed through her tears and gave me a hug.  The bride is one of my closest friends and snapping her out of her romantic vow writing morning was only one of my tasks that day.  I was also her hair and makeup artist (hence my concern about the puffy crying), bridesmaid, and she also asked me to take some photos during the morning and before the ceremony.  I was busy.  : )

The couple lucked out as it truly was a classically perfect Colorado fall day in Buena Vista. As you’ll see below, her emotional morning had ZERO negative effect on her beauty for the day.  Girl is SO damn photogenic.  Enjoy a few of my favorite photos from the big day!  You might even spot one of me and my little baby bump.

A little note.

Hello world…

It’s been a minute!

Actually it’s been over 8 months which is also how long I’ve been pregnant.  That’s not my excuse for being absent, rather an interesting coincidence.

As usual, the reason I’m posting is because I have photos to share.  Without photos we might not be here at all, reuniting after such a long hiatus.  I’ve got a wedding, a few family sessions, and our maternity photos to share over the next week or two, so keep checking back for updates.  I’m also debating posting a little summation of getting and being pregnant.  We shall see as I’m due three weeks from today and I’ve got things to do!

I’m sure come January 6th (give or take a few days) I’ll have nothing BUT photos to share of he who is sure to be the cutest baby that ever lived, so hopefully this little post kickstarts me into blogging mode.  I started this blog as a way to keep family and friends updated with what’s going on in our lives and coming up soon there will be A LOT going on.  I’m excited to get back with it around here and will hopefully have lots to share.

For those of you already shaking your heads at me thinking “she has no idea how little time she’ll have for showering let alone blogging” I say – you may be right. Maybe.  But won’t it be great if I do?!  I’ll be honest and say  I’m getting a little tired of people acting like having a baby ruins your life and steals all time away.  I’m not an idiot and fully understand I’m about to have my hands full, but I’m hoping at least once a month I’ll be able to carve out some time to upload some photos and give little updates.  For your sake. So don’t root against me.  : )

See you soon.  Happy to be back.
