Composto + Tuesta Family Portraits: Golden

Wow this year has flown by! Kind of crazy to think this week is Thanksgiving and before we know it Christmas and New Years will be here. We have so much to be thankful for this last year and are so appreciative of each and every one of our wonderful clients! We are truly blessed! The end to our 2016 season came a little earlier than usual since I had some work travel that took up the rest of the fall but at least we ended with one of our favorite couples:-)Last year in November we photographed Katie + Felix’s maternity pictures and this year we had the privilege of photographing both their parents along with their new family of 4- we can’t forget their adorable pup Stella:-) . It was very nice to see their parents again after Katie + Felix’s wedding back in 2011. And of course we were excited to meet their newest addition, little Felix, who is SOO stinkin’ cute! We’re so happy for them! They have the cutest little family! We met up with their families in Golden at one of our favorite spots near downtown. Despite the 50 other photographers there (all women minus myself… all wearing red plaid and boots by the way) we still managed to get some great photos. Okay maybe not quite 50 but it was CRAZY! I haven’t been surrounded by that many photographers outside of attending photography workshops. Thanks guys for sticking it out for the afternoon among the sea of people. Hope you enjoy the sneak peek!

The Eschenfelder Family: Larkspur

I’ve worked with Chip for a few years now and after talking about family pictures for quite some time we finally worked out the details for a session last month with his wife Jen and their 12 year old son Logan. We met up with the Eschenfelder family down in Larkspur at one of our favorite spots- particularly in the fall. They wanted a true Colorado feel and between the trees and the open field against the hills in the backdrop I think we got just that! Not to mention the light couldn’t have been prettier that afternoon! While we love getting to photograph big families and new families with babies it was a nice change of pace to photograph just the three of them… a tad more relaxed without all the people and little ones haha:-). We had a great time getting to work with their family and got some beautiful pictures that we are so excited to share! Here’s some of our favorites- enjoy! P.S. if you need ideas for what to wear for a family session they did a great job coordinating colors and patterns and are a perfect example of what to wear. 

The DiFalco Family: University of Denver

Almost exactly a year ago we were photographing Tammy + Greg’s maternity photos at the University of Denver and now their pup Franklin isn’t the only baby anymore:-)Grayson was born not long after our session with them last year and will be a year old next month. Oh my is he a cutie! Talk about a happy and smiley baby!!! Just can’t help but smile every time we look at these pictures from their session. Since DU made such a great backdrop last year for their maternity photos and they enjoy spending time in the area it was the perfect spot for their family session. The leaves were just starting to change adding some beautiful fall colors to the day and of course what is more fun for little kids than playing with the leaves! As usual we had a great time getting to see Tammy & Greg again and loved meeting little Grayson. So excited to share some of our favorites from their session and very happy to see what a beautiful little family they now have- Grayson is one lucky little guy. God Bless!

The Rothe Family Portraits: Lair O’ the Bear

My favorite time of year is finally here and as always fall makes a perfect backdrop for pictures! The end of September we met up with the Rothe family at one of our favorite locations- Lair O’ the Bear. It’s hard to believe it has been 8 years since we originally photographed Angela + Robert’s engagement session the fall of 2008! While we have loved the new opportunities we’ve had since leaving wedding photography 2 years ago we will always be grateful for the wonderful people we met during those wedding years- especially couples like Angela and Robert! We had such a great time working with them all those years ago for their engagements and wedding and were so excited when we heard from them about photographing their family this fall. 2 1/2 years ago they were blessed with an adorable little boy who is not only adorable but has the cutest personality on top of it! Harrison loved getting to see his picture on the back of the camera- even if it was before you actually took the picture haha:-)We had so much fun seeing them again and getting to photograph their beautiful family! They even brought along their doggie Mischa who was so good for the entire session- love the pictures of her and Harrison together. It was such a pleasure getting to work with them again and meet Harrison. Here’s some of our favorites from the day!

The VanderHeiden Family: Centennial Family Pictures

Just before the snow came in last week we were able to get one more “fall” session in. This time at a location we had scouted a couple years back but hadn’t had the opportunity to photograph yet. Minus trying to steer clear of the other half dozen photographers it was a perfect spot for a large group! Between the red barn, an old white farm house, the field etc it gave us plenty of variety without everyone having to hike a mile. While they have quite a few new members to their family since the last time we saw them, we have known the VanderHeiden family going on close to 2 decades. Well at least Michelle has:-)Tom and Nancy have been good friends of Michelle’s family way back since she was in middle school. They were able to get their entire family and grandchildren together for a big family session that we had the pleasure of getting to capture for them. We had a great time with all of them and are so excited to get to share some of our favorite images from that afternoon! Such a beautiful family! Enjoy!

Volkel Family Portraits: Larkspur

Yes the name for this post is right- there are more Volkels out there. Okay actually these particular Volkels are related:-)Ever since my niece Hailey was born we’ve been wanting to get to photograph my brother and his family and this past weekend we got the chance! They made the drive down our way and we headed to Larkspur just before sunset. About halfway through we all learned that apparently Hailey LOVES rocking chairs. I think if we had let her she would have sat in that chair all day and all night. Which of course made for some adorable pictures of her since she was having the time of her life just rocking away. We made it to the open field right as the light created the most beautiful orange glow over the whole background- some of my favorites! So excited to share these photos with them and especially for the grandmas who have been waiting for these for a LOOOOOOOONG time 😉 

The Romero Family: Littleton Family Portraits

We met the Romero Family last fall when they just had their daughter Grace and this year their family has grown to 4 with little Lucy- and what an adorable family they have! We photographed their session on Halloween last Saturday in the early morning. It was a little chilly to start the day but at least it did get warmer by the time we were finished and the late sunrise light coming through the trees made for some beautiful light to the photos! Most of our sessions are typically closer to sunset but this year our schedule has been so packed and a morning session just happened to work out perfectly for their family. Their little girls Grace and Lucy are such cuties! Lucy is about 4 months old and was so content almost the entire session! We are so grateful we got to photograph this time in their life and are excited to share some of our favorites from their session- enjoy!
