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 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! 

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!
