This was a special family session for me. It is not often that you move into a small community and find another LGBT family just around the corner! We have grown to know this sweet little family over the past year and cannot be more grateful to have friends like them our lives. We set out last week to capture some big mountain views at sunset and the night couldn't have been more perfect. You would never guess that it was sprinkling and threatening rain as we walked over to the gondola! What a beautiful night!
This beautiful family hails from all over the United States! They met in Beaver Creek for a family vacation. Daniel contacted me to have their extended family portraits taken in honor of his mother. In about 40 minutes we accomplished so many different types of groupings, as you will see below. Thanks to the cooperative group, this almost is never be accomplished in that short of a time! They suggested the park you see above. I wanted some mountain views for them to take home with them and luckily we found the ski run to the main lift fell right in the background, kismet! I also found some aspen trees, which are so central to Colorado's identity, as another background. I hope these family portraits grow more specials as the years go by.
This week I had several family portrait sessions! I am thanking my lucky stars that I am growing the family side of my business. Ever since having my own child I feel so much more drawn to making these images for growing families. This first session is a local Eagle, CO family.
Family Photos Vail, CO
This family is pretty special, because we share the same last name! I am now on a mission to see if there is any relation! I love families with little ones that are looking for authentic moments, not just images of everyone smiling for the camera. This is real life with a high energy three year old boy and I love it!
Vail, CO Family Photo Session
Often families from out of state call me for family portraits while they are on vacation here in Vail. They are looking for a few good photos for the Christmas card this year and a larger memento from their trip than just a t-shirt. ;)
Watch out world! This young woman is on a mission! Morgan has really focused on her coursework in high school and is currently fourth in her class! She has goals of becoming a doctor and is on her way to being one of Eaglecrest's valedictorians! I am thrilled that she chose me to capture her senior photos. Morgan and I found that we have a very special connection because Morgan is the daughter of two moms. We chatted until long after the sun set and could probably have talked all night. After getting to know Morgan and her mom, Amy, I can only hope that my daughter grows up to be as kind, intelligent and compassionate as this young woman. She is truly a stellar soul!
