Light Night Community Carnival | Denver Colorado Children's Photographer

Halloween is that fun time of year that our kids get to dress up and be anything they want... along with collecting way too much candy that makes all the dentists happy lol. But hey its fun for us parents too because we get to act like kids too and join in on the fun right?! These days its hard to find good Safe Fun for our children on Halloween Night.

Crossroads Church (corner of 104th and Huron in Northglenn CO) will be having a Light Night Community Carnival for all the kids in the area.   5:30 to 8:30pm there will be fun, games and candy for those of you who would like a great place to bring your children tomorrow night. I hope to see you there!

Colorado The Beautiful | Denver Colorado Photographer

I don't think I will ever get enough of Colorado. Every time I drive by the mountains or go to an open space there is so much beauty compared to anywhere else I've lived or traveled.
We went up in the mountains to go camping last month and found the prettiest places...
 




 
Breath taking don't you think?

Way Back Wednesday | Denver Colorado Newborn Photographer

Meet Lily....
This precious little sweet pea was a tiny one at just over 5 lbs.
She was small enough to fit inside her Daddy's cover :)
Here are some of my favorite images from her session...
 
 
 
 





Turning 2 | Denver Colorado Children's Photographer

While in North Carolina I photographed one of my good neighborhood friends Maria and her kids Sebastian and Marissa. Her son is a couple months younger than mine and they had a blast seeing each other again and her daughter is 2. Can you guess what kind of party she had for her birthday?
We were so glad there was a Sonic right around the corner from the park because we were sweating up a storm and needed a big drink after their session!
 
Happy 2nd Birthday Marissa!!

School Days | Denver Colorado Children's Photographer

My little man started Pre-K last month and though it was kinda emotional to have him at school for 3 hours a day. I'm happy that he now enjoys himself and can't wait to go to school and see all his new friends. I just might be a new kind of emotional next year when its full day Kindergarten :(

The "G" Family | Denver Colorado Family Photographer

I had the great priviledge of photographing my cousin and her family when I visited North Carolina this summer. Aren't they beautiful? It was hot as could be that day but a gorgeous day for family portraits.
This family is probably the biggest New York Giants fans I've ever known lol.
Jim proudly served in the United States Navy as a Corpsman for close to 13 years before being injured in December 2006 and earning himself a Purple Heart.
Thank You Jim for your service to our country.

Beautify Yourself! | Denver Colorado Boudoir Photographer

I want to introduce you to another wonderful artist that has joined our studio.
Please meet Shannon Ball
 
 
Shannon is joining our studio and bringing her expertise in Hair and Makeup!
 
1) What made you want to do hair and make up or become a cosmetologist?
 
When I was a little girl, around 10 yrs old I became intrigued with
 makeup. When I was a teenager my sister went to cosmetology school
 and I Loved what she did. My sister opened a spa in Webster, NY and I
 decided to go to school for skin care. I saw how empowered a woman/lady could become if she felt confident by her appearance- I wanted to show others how to create confidence through his/ her image.
 
2) What schooling/life experience do you have in your profession? Years working?
I have 650 hours of skin care schooling (aesthetics) and have been working as a MUA since 1997. I have taught skincare/ makeup application for over 8 years also.
3) What do you feel your strengths are with hair and make up?
My strengths with makeup are creating natural and daytime makeup.
Hair: more natural styles such as wavy locks or fun cutting edge styles.

4) What is your favorite style of hair and make up to do?
Favorite style is NATURAL!

5) Favorite thing about what you do:
 Favorite thing I do is watching someone's eyes light up because they see their outside appearance match their beauty within.
 
6) What are your favorite brands of make up to use?
Favorite brands are Bareminerals and Bobbi Brown.  Bobbi uses colors only naturally found in everyone's pigments.

7) What sets you apart from other hair and make up artists?
 I am set apart from other MUA because I am down to earth. I have worked with celebs and everyday people. I understand everyone is just as important as everyone else. Every individual has something special that can be captured. My job is to make them as beautiful as possible and to bring out their essence.
 
 

 
Ask how you can add professional Hair and Makeup to your upcoming session.
 
For those booking Boudoir sessions, you will receive complementary hair and makeup

Inspiration | Denver CO Senior Photographer

Inspiration... everyone has someone or something that inspires them.
 
I have many people that inspire me, but one person in particular, was the one who inspired me to follow my heart in becoming a Professional Photographer. I've mentioned my Grandpa on my website in my 'about me' section and wanted to share with you here.
My Grandpa served in the Army and then got out and joined the Navy and served until he retired. He was a Photographer for the Navy and when he retired he continued working as a Photographer at the local Marine Base where I'm from, along with photographing weddings and family portraits outside of work. Always seeing him with his cameras and equipment made me want to start taking pictures with my little point and shoot film camera and scrapbook everything I photographed. I'm grateful to be able to pick his brain for anything pertaining to photography and have him here to help me out when needed. I'm also grateful for him gifting me my first camera that sparked my creativity and then a professional grade camera that started me on this journey many years ago. I've since then upgraded my cameras and other equipment many times and have progressed and evolved as an artist and Photographer, always perfecting my craft and always out to learn more from him and other Photographers with more years than I.
 
What inspires you?
 
 
 
Army

Navy
