for beloved families in Colorado Springs, Denver, and all of Colorado
Red Rocks Open Space
I have been lucky to know the Trevinos for a few years now, and feel blessed that they have chosen me to document their family on multiple occasions! Their little girl was about to turn two, and it was a joy to photograph her smile and the love she has for her parents (and her bear, Tutu!)
Fox Run park
This past summer, the Heap family added two new additions to their family - twin boys! Add in a precious little girl, and they have themselves an adorable (and busy!) family. With 30 tiny toes in the home, it's easy to let life fly by - but they took the time to photograph their new family, and had some fun while they were at it!
Downtown Colorado Springs
The Esqueda Family approached me with a vision of glamour, fashion, and class for their family photos, and boy did they deliver! We had a blast, laughing our way downtown, while they practiced their best "Vogue" faces.
Peyton In-Home Family Session
After two handsome boys, the Bushes welcomed a beautiful baby girl to their family! Kiddos and parents alike were absolutely thrilled, and it was an honor to be the first to photograph this new family of five (nine - if you include the dogs!)
Bear Creek park
Another family that I have been blessed to watch grow over the years! This family session documented a memorable and emotional season of life, and it was an honor to be there to capture it all.
Red Rocks Open Space
The Lortrakul family contacted me for photos intended as Christmas gifts for family - but little did they know they were also gifting themselves the preservation of these precious moments... especially of their little girl! They had a blast, and I hope to get them in front of my lens again soon.
Your family • Forever
It's true - life is but a collection of moments. Some moments are better than others, more beautiful than others, more memorable than others, but these moments all help pave the unique path of your family's life and deserve to be documented... that's where I come in! I'm here to be your guide through the family photography experience. I'll photograph your family, whether it's for a big milestone, the holidays, or just for kicks, so that you and your loved ones can have a physical reminder of, and can later reminisce about, your unique collection of moments.
I believe in having fun, laughing, and celebrating your family just as they are during your photo session. I believe in embracing unique personalities, child-led sessions, and am skilled at drawing out authentic smiles. Since I know that not all families include kiddos, I'm happy to photograph your chosen family - be it with your significant other, friends, pets, or even yes... your house plants.
When choosing me as your Denver Family Photographer you can expect all of the professionalism, talent, and beautiful photos that come with being photographed by an award-winning photographer, while also experiencing the ease and comfort of being photographed by a friend.
Joyfully serving families in Colorado Springs, Denver, and all of Colorado.

1. Say Hello
2.Let's make it official
Once we get the conversation started, I'll send over collection details and a standard contract for you to review and sign. After that, a $200 retainer is all it takes to secure your date and time with me. Your $200 retainer will ultimately be applied to your collection of choice. This retainer covers my time spent scouting locations, helping you pick out the perfect outfits for you and your family, shooting your session, and editing your images.
* Session locations outside of the Colorado Springs or Denver areas may be subject to an additional travel fee*
3. ask me Anything
Prior to your session, I'll be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about being photographed. I'm happy to provide style guides for outfits, hair and makeup vendor referrals, and will also provide location recommendations based on your vision for your photos. Unsure of how you envision your family photos? That's fine too! I can provide a variety of style and location ideas, and then help you nail down what may be the best fit for you and your family. Regardless, I'll stay in close communication before your session so that you're supported every step of the way.
4. Your Photo Shoot
Now for the fun! We'll meet at the chosen location and spend about 45 - 60mins documenting all the smiles, giggles, and personalities that make up your family... we'll have a great time capturing this special moment!
You can expect a lot of excitement and hype from me as I guide you and your loved ones through a series of flattering poses and smile-worthy prompts that will help even the shyest in your family feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera.
5. your photographs
You'll receive a fully edited online proofing gallery within two weeks of your photo session. Once it pops into your e-mail, you'll scroll through the gallery in awe of your beautiful family, and "heart" all of your favorite images! You'll then be able to purchase whichever photo collection and/or artwork that best speaks to your heart, your home, and your needs. Check out the pricing details below!
Just because your photos have now been purchased and delivered, doesn't mean I drop off the map! Stay in touch, reach out with any photography related questions (or just to say hi,) and let me continue to photograph your family through the years!

Family Photo Collections
Everyone's budget and needs are different, and I respect that! For this reason, I offer a variety of collections that include anywhere from 5 digital images to the entire gallery! Because photos look their best when printed and displayed for enjoyment, each collection also includes an artwork credit that can be used to purchase prints, canvases, and more from my professional print shop (the quality is stunning - trust me!) In addition, custom heirloom albums can be added on to any collection, so that you have a piece of treasured and personalized artwork to pass down through the generations. Be sure to "Say Hello" to learn more about specific collection options.
