In cahoots – styled photoshoot with Dare Boutique and Alpine Ridge Salon | Portrait and Senior Photographer in Evergreen Colorado.

We almost thought we were going to get a spring snow shoot. But the flurries were so elusive and flurried that we never seemed to get them in our shots. Even so, I’m loving what came out of this session. Miss Em is wearing new arrivals from Dare Boutique in Evergreen (also in Denver) and Marian was our hair stylist, Sasha was our makeup artist. Both Marian and Sasha can be found at Alpine Ridge Salon & Spa. I love Emily’s range of expressions and looks in these series of images. She looks like different famous actresses – it changes from image to image. What do you think? As always, I love to hear your thoughts – comment below! xo,...

Meeting Beth Heller, Montessori School of Evergreen’s Head of School | Portrait photography in Evergreen Colorado.

I have two kids that attend the Montessori school here in Evergreen and it’s the first school/child care place I’ve taken them where I feel really good leaving them to have a few hours without me. And it’s not just a matter of caring for basic needs.  They’re flourishing and becoming little independent people that can clean up after they eat, hang their coats and kindly take turns. It’s pretty amazing to witness the change. Miracles can and do happen.  And at the head of this magical place, you’ll find Beth Heller. My 4-year-old is certain that Beth is a fairy princess, which is an understandable mistake. She fits the bill with her effervescent personality, great smile and excellent fashion sense. She’s a natural with our children and she also has some great ideas about education and supports new ways to learn. You can read some of Beth’s thoughtful articles on education HERE. You can learn more about Montessori School of Evergreen HERE. We photographed Beth in a few locations around the Troutdale Campus. I love photographing in there – beautiful light, fun colors and textures and patterns, and many cute kids, hard at work. xo,...

Senior Model Season – Class of 2014 | High School Senior Portrait Photographer in Evergreen Colorado.

Our Miss Leah is winding up her senior year at D’Evelyn High School and in the fall will be heading to a small university in Iowa. It’s sad to see these great girls go, but at the same time, so excellent to see them grow and take on the new challenges of life. I’m excited to see where the next few years take Leah!  Some of us are forever nostalgic and need to hold onto the moment. For those who need to cling, here’s a look-back at Leah’s highlight reel from her senior portrait sessions:...
