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. 

Larkspur Family Portraits: The Leonard Family

It was an interesting start to the spring to say the least. The weather just couldn’t make up it’s mind which season it was! Last weekend things finally seemed to calm and the trees had enough leaves to actually look like spring- perfect timing for our session with the Leonard family down in Larkspur. Dawson Butte is one of our favorite locations- and the Leonards are one of our favorite families 🙂 It had been two years since we last photographed their family and their adorable kids Lexi and Reese have definitely grown since we last saw them! The craziest thing to think about is that this September will mark Jennifer & Nick’s 9 year wedding anniversary! Doesn’t really seem that long since we photographed their wedding but then again so much has changed that it also feels like forever 🙂 Like always we had a great time getting to photograph their family! We’re excited to share our favorites from the day- enjoy!

The Stengel Family: Larkspur

Happy 2016!!!! Can’t believe how fast the end of the year flew by and that we are now already in March. It’s been nice to take a little breather after such a busy fall and the rush of the holidays. Although the majority of our sessions make it to our blog, at times we don’t have the chance to share everything. So, before we start back up this spring we thought we’d share a few sessions from last year that we didn’t share at the time. Back in November we got to photograph the Stengel family down at Dawson Butte. Since our session was planned toward the end of the month they decided it would be great if we could find a location with snow for the pictures. We lucked out the week before and in some areas had a good foot or more to walk through that afternoon. It’s not too often we get to photograph in the snow so we’re really glad they were up for it! We had such a great time with all of them and it was fun getting to do something so different. Here’s a few of our favorites from their session- 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 Richens Family: Fall Portraits in Larkspur

It’s been a while since we’ve photographed the Richens family and their boys have definitely grown! Here’s a link to their first session over 4 years ago in 2010! We love getting together with these guys, there is always plenty of laughter to go around as well as making the kids do funny things and laughing at their amusement- particularly Mitchell’s “Gromit” smile (from Wallace and Gromit)- it’s adorable 🙂  We met up with them at Dawson Butte in Larkspur right when the fall leaves were at their best. I just love the combo of the field and forest you get there. Now that the kids are older I had some pretty in depth conversations with them about turning sticks into pretend weapons and about how cool Spider-Man really is (the parents are raising them right teaching them about superheroes and all)! Here’s some of our favorites!

The Chasinoff Family: Larkspur Family Photography

With some changes we’ve made this year to our business it’s opened up a lot more time for family sessions which we LOVE getting to photograph. A week ago we got to meet friends of Jennifer and Nick Leonard, the Chasinoff family. We had a great time getting to take their photos and at one of our very favorite locations- Dawson Butte! They have a beautiful family with two beautiful girls! Allie their youngest has such a personality too- always my favorite part of getting to photograph families 🙂 The question we are most often asked when it comes to family pictures is what is the best way to dress? Since a picture says way more than words and the Chasinoff family NAILED it with the perfect clothing choices, I’ll just refer people to this post from now on. It was such a pleasure getting to work with these guys and I’m so excited to share some of our favorite pics from our session- 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!
