Photos with Santa Post-Event Wrap-Up – Fundraiser for EAPL | Family Photographer Evergreen Colorado

Thank you to all of you who came out to support the Evergreen Animal Protective League this past weekend! There were dogs available for adoption, great gifts at great prices, and photos with Santa!  It was a gorgeous, sunny day here in Evergreen and the setting for our photos was perfect (kudos to the EAPL design team!). If you’re interested in adopting, there are still many great dogs available. Here are photos from the event and some of these dogs are still looking for a good family and a forever home. Also below is a sampling of our fun shots with Santa and with our beautiful Colorado setting. All the money raised from this shoot goes directly to EAPL, a 100% volunteer organization. Read more about EAPL here and consider how you can help this holiday season!...

Photos with Santa to Benefit Evergreen Animal Protective League | Family Photographer in Evergreen Colorado

Join fellow photographer Melissa Korbe and myself this Saturday at the Bergen Park Fire Station in Evergreen as we photograph your kids – furry and not-furry – with Santa! Each $25 sitting gives you time with the big, jolly guy in the red suit and 3 digital images, emailed to your inbox. All proceeds go to benefit the Evergreen Animal Protective League. They do good work, helping our voiceless friends find forever homes with good families. In fact, you can find yourself a new family member at this event – animals available for adoption will be there tomorrow!  Please read more about what EAPL does by clicking HERE.  I found my own fur-baby with the help of EAPL!  Hope to see you there.

Family Photo Session Styling | Family Portrait Photographer Evergreen Colorado

One of the most common questions I get as clients and I work together to plan for their photo session is: What do I wear?  This is a simple but really important question and the more thought and preparation that can go into this before the shoot, the better your images will look and the happier you’ll be. And that’s all I really want at the end of the day. Happy You. 🙂 So what DO you wear? The question might be simple, but the answer is not so much. As a starting point, I say: What is your style – be true to it, but take it up a notch. If you’re a jeans and cowboy boots kinda gal, be sure to polish those boots (or use this as an excuse to splurge on those ones you’ve been eyeing for the last year) and wear jeans that flatter your figure. I think a photo session is a great excuse to freshen up your wardrobe – with accessories if nothing else. And consider your session the chance to be playful with your style and have fun. If you dream about wearing a big poufy dress with the guys in your family all wearing tuxes and top hats, do it! That’s awesome (and call me immediately if you haven’t already – I want to be the one to shoot this). Next: What is your intention with your photographs? Will they hang in your formal living room on the mantle of your fireplace? Or will they be in your child’s brightly colored room? Thinking about the location you’ll be displaying your...

Farm Credit Team | Business Headshot Portraits for Women in Evergreen Colorado – Part II

  The Farm Credit National Communications team knows how to do it right. They balance an incredible work ethic with time for fun team activities. Their recent headshot session at our studio was no exception. They made it a Ladies Day Out and had a great time, but still managed to do quite a bit of work in the middle of it. They love what they do, they highly respect the other members of their team and they have exceptional abilities in accessorizing. Sounds perfect to me! 🙂     Check out some recent images from our session below and those from my previous post.  And learn more about the cool stuff Farm Credit does here: Farm Credit Network Website.  Hair and makeup by Jennifer Ngo. It’s time for a new headshot, isn’t it?… Come see me!!...

Our vets need YOUR help – here’s what you can do. Fundraising Event in Evergreen Colorado.

On Saturday, November 2nd, the Women of Evergreen Businesses (WEB) group is hosting an event to support our local veterans. They’ve put their lives on the line for us, and now we have a chance to say thank you and show our support for our troops as they make the transition back home. The November 2nd event will raise money to send local participating military families to Project Sanctuary, with retreats in Granby, Colorado. During these retreats, the families will have the opportunity to bond with other military families, they’ll enjoy recreational activities together, take classes that will help them with their relationships and practical day-to-day life skills. Project Sanctuary offers these retreats at NO COST to military families, but they need help raising funds so they can continue. Here’s what YOU can do to help: – Buy a ticket and join us for an amazing evening at Mount Vernon Country Club on Saturday, November 2nd. Tickets are $50 each and include a buffet, live music and silent auction. There will also be speakers to share more about Project Sanctuary and the impact it makes on the lives of vets and their families. Tickets are available for sale at the Wild Bird Store and Mountain View Physical Therapy. – Donate an item for the silent auction or door prize. If you or someone you know would be interested, have them contact me! – Donate directly to Project Sanctuary. Thank you! —————————————— The Power of Statistics Please read below to see how Project Sanctuary truly makes a difference. And the alarming facts about U.S. Service Members, Veterans and Families.

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...
