Summer Studies – kids in-action at home | Family and Kid’s Portraits in Evergreen Colorado

Summer is moving quickly – as always. I love this time of year, especially with kids. They can get out, get their hands dirty and we don’t have to bundle them in several layers of snow gear. I love photographing them against the deep greens of the summer grass and trees – there’s a depth that is easy on the eyes. If you’d like images like this of your little ones – tangible memories of this fleeting season (at least here in Evergreen, Colorado), I offer sessions where we get beautiful images of your littles doing their thing. You can send me an email through the CONTACT link above. This is why I do what I do. Life is too short to miss these opportunities – next Summer they will not be this little.  xo Katy...

A Day in the Life – Don’t Forget to Pack the Camera | Family Portraits Evergreen Colorado

Do you bring your camera with you when you go about your day with your family?  Next time you’re heading out, don’t forget to pack it along, even if that just means your camera phone. Go with the intention of taking at least 10 shots. Shoot 10 things that seem totally ordinary, or ask the kids to do something fun together, just for the photo – do as much or as little as you feel like. Just be sure to shoot with intention. It may seem like a not-very-special day, but, looking back on your images, even just a month later, will feel magical (even the frowny faces 🙂 ). The true power of stopping time, stopping those daily average moments. Because they’re normal today, but they won’t be normal tomorrow. Stop – just stop that moment. If I hadn’t packed my camera for our trip to the park, we wouldn’t have this forever-memory. Love!...

Come n’ get a new profile photo! And help save babies! | Headshot Portrait Fundraising Event for the Kyrie Foundation.

I’d like to invite you all to next week’s special fundraising event at the studio.

Cuteness for the New Year | Children’s Portrait Photography in Evergreen Colorado.

Happy New 2013! I hope everybody is off to a good start and adding some positive new resolutions to better your days. One of my resolutions is to be better about more frequent blogging. It’s fun to share images from shoots, news on upcoming special events, interesting outfit and styling ideas and the like. One of my big plans is to start posting interviews with some of the incredible folks I have the opportunity to photograph so you can get to know them as more than just a pretty face. People are doing amazing things with their lives and have good stories to tell. Look for those coming soon! For now, I’d like to share some images from a recent shoot with a friend’s daughter. She spent most of the shoot in her “cat” persona, so if you listen closely, you might hear some purring. 🙂  Meet Miss Maive! Hair and styling: Karinna Wurth          ...
