Julie and Nate: The Wedding

Julie and Nate were married in Grand Lake, CO in May of 2015.  It was truly beautiful.  It was also nearly two years ago.  But time and children have intervened and I’ve lapsed in posting until now.  I do remember one thing quite clearly from the wedding.  Julie’s dad gave a wonderful speech about his […]

River: "Bridal" Portraits August 2017

My daughter, River, is obsessed with weddings.  She insists on marrying her daddy regularly.  So one day desperate to get some pictures of her I offered to take some bridal photos in our garden.  She chose the outfit and together we made a bridal bouquet.  And a beautiful bride she made.

I met Julie and Nate for the first time squeezed between trips to visit hospital interviews for their residencies.  They were full of energy despite having barely been home in recent memory.  And they talked to me about their dreams of their life.  About their love of the caring for others.  About their love of […]

I live the day-to-day with you.  The laughs.  The kisses.  The hugs.  The first rolls.  The first attempts at crawling.  The first hesitant […]

Graham: Senior Photos

Graham is an poised, thoughtful, and technically creative young man.  We had a wonderful time capturing his personality for senior portraits. Graham’s dad and I used to share an office and I’ve known him since he would come in to his dad’s work for a visit occasionally.  I remember the first time he ran the […]

River and Ansel: September 2016

I just love these photos of my daughter. Most of the time these days that I pull out my camera (or my phone camera) I’m getting her posed smile.  But on this day in these pictures I got lucky.  I captured the spirit inside.

Shannon and Chris were married at the historic Fleming Mansion in Denver on a beautiful and hot August day.  The day was very laid-back and full of time with family and friends.  And included one dressed-up dog ring bearer who did a very good job. Congratulations!
