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 Arnoldy Family: Lair O’ the Bear

A couple weeks back we had the opportunity to photograph the Arnoldy family up at Lair O’ the Bear. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer afternoon and after weeks of trying to work around the snow to capture the look of spring it was so great finally getting to meet them! It was such an odd spring this year but up in Idledale things were a little slower so we were able to catch some flowers in the field and even a few blossoms on the trees. They are friends of the Brandle family who we had the pleasure of photographing last year and we are so grateful for the chance to photograph their family this time 🙂 They have three cute kiddos who made for a very fun session! Emerson is just getting the hang of this whole walking thing and was ready to go go go! The twins Noah & Mia are 5 and seem to have some good healthy competition with one another. I’m sure having twins has it’s challenges but it was fun watching these two 🙂 We had a great time with them and got so many cute pictures we’re excited to get to share! Annie & Eric it was so great meeting your family! 

Leonard Family: Castle Rock Family Session

What a difference a year makes! The last weekend in June we met up with the Leonard family at Columbine Open Space in Castle Rock for a family session. They were hoping to find a location with a barn and after some research we were so happy to find this spot just outside of town! It just happened to be exactly one year from our session with them last summer and it was so much fun to see how much their kids have grown since then. Reese is now walking which makes exploring everything around him so much more fun for him and a great workout for his parents 🙂 We did manage to capture a few of the whole family together while Reese enjoyed moving rocks from one place to another. We always love getting to work with Jennifer & Nick and with Lexi & Reese they make one of the cutest families ever! Here’s some of our favorites!

The Gall Family: Wonderland Lake Family Portraits

Fall is my favorite time to photograph and especially for family portraits- the warm colors this time of year can’t be beat. Last weekend we headed up to Boulder to meet the Gall family at a location we hadn’t been before, Wonderland Park. I’m so glad we were able to take advantage of the last of the leaves and the perfect weather that afternoon. This was actually our second time working with the Gall family. We had the pleasure of working with them back in 2010 when Sawyer was just a little guy and since then they’ve added another adorable little boy to their family, Avery. The boys actually did really well that afternoon and I love the reaction we got from them while throwing pebbles into the lake and playing with the leaves. We had a really good time getting to take these pictures for them. They have such a cute family and it was so cool to see how well Sawyer is doing and growing since the last time we saw him. Sara and Trent thank you for inviting us to capture these for you!

Idledale Family Portraits: Kooi + Wyant Family

Back in high school I would have never thought that some day I would be photographing some of my classmates FAMILY’S, and cute ones at that. I’ve known Morgan and Andrea since high school and it was so awesome to catch up with them and photograph their families. It’s amazing how time flies after high school and to see that we all had families of our own. We meet at Lair O’ the Bear and once again it did not disappoint, it was gorgeous and we had perfect weather. And with the sketchy weather forecasts we’ve been getting lately we didn’t know if it might pour rain on us or not. The only snag of the day was when Andrea put down her purse in a field and we didn’t realize until the end of the shoot, but low and behold some nice colorado hikers said they had seen it and told us exactly where to look, purse saved! The kids were such little angels and had some of the best posers (future models perhaps?) and the husbands..well they were too. Great people, cute kids and no lost purses makes for some great photos, Enjoy!

The Leonard Family: Larkspur Family Portraits

I’m really excited to share this session from last week with the Leonard family. We’ve known these guys for almost 10 years now but hadn’t seen them since their daughter Lexi was right about the age of their little boy Reese- way too long! Michelle and Jennifer worked together years ago, Jennifer was our most awesome real estate agent who helped us buy our first house, and we had the pleasure of photographing this cute couple’s wedding back in 2007! Now they have the most adorable family! After having to reschedule our original session due to weather, last week we met these guys down at Dawson Butte open space just south of Castle Rock. Michelle and I love going for walks and after spending an afternoon at Dawson Butte last month we couldn’t believe we lived so close to such a beautiful location and how perfect it would be for pictures. The original plan was for a mini session but since we were having too much fun and the kids were holding up we had to get a few extra pics 🙂 Here’s some of our favorites from the day!
