The Anderson Family- Highlands Ranch Family Photographer

It is amazing how quickly kids grow!  We couldn't make our schedules mesh last year and therefore we didn't get a session on the calendar.  So I am super thankful that this year we started earlier and we were able to get a date on the calendar.



Not only were we able to schedule a regular session, but they brought along some extra family members.



It was a great treat to meet JP's sister and mom and dad.



I love the way they still look at each other.  




It is obvious that these kids love their Aunt Kiki and that the feeling is mutual.



And this beautiful and fabulous woman had the most beautiful purse....I had purse envy.  However, I found that amazing purse 50% off while I was in New York earlier this month and now I have a beautiful purse too.  I couldn't resist!!  Thanks for the inspiration Kristen.




Can we just talk for a minute about this kid?  I think I see modeling in his future.  Are you kidding me???





I think he comes by it honestly.  Check out these three generations.



Not to be outdone by all of the beautiful ladies in this family.



Audrey has grown up so much and has the sweetest little smile and personality.  Her eyes have the most beautiful sparkle.




I seriously love this family.  Ashley is amazing and makes you feel 100% comfortable and instantly like you are old friends with her.  Also mad props as she is an ER doc and worked the night before the photos and was operating on only 3 hours of sleep.  How do you do that Ashley???




Woot woot.  Look at these two.....heating up the camera!!!



Littleton Historical Museum is one of my favorite places to shoot.  So many great backdrops and it is never very crowded.  And the kids love to see all of the animals.  It is a treasure!




This little family is so much fun to hang out with.  The sibling pictures are always some of my favorite!


 
I am so glad we were able to make it work this year!!  I missed you guys last year and I hope that I don't have to wait 2 years again before I see you again Andersons!

The Kolbo Family- Roxborough State Park Photography

I had never met this cute little family before, but we have a lot of mutual friends so when we met it felt like we already knew each other! 



They live up in Roxborough so they wanted to have their pictures done at Roxborough State Park which is practically in their backyard.




I have never shot up at Roxborough State Park and I was excited to try out a new location.  And it did not disappoint!



Those red rocks are stunning and they make for such a great background.





I got there a bit early and hiked all around trying to find the best spots for pictures.  Unfortunately, I made a VERY poor choice in footwear and after walking (read: hiking) all over the park(twice) I had quite a blister on my foot!!  If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my story about it.  If you don't follow me on Instagram, you should!  I can be a bit silly and you get to see a less polished (real) look at my life.  Click here to follow me!



Patti is a dance teacher.  So we got some headshots and I had to get some pictures of her favorite dance student as well!  Isn't she beautiful??? And we can't leave out the boys....what a good looking crew!






These kids were a blast.  We had some good laughs and they were great about having their picture taken.





I was a little sad when the session ended because it was one of my favorites from this year.  Easy, relaxed and fun!



And we ended up with so many great pictures!



Kolbo family, I am so glad that we have mutual friends and that we were able to get to know each other and hang out for the afternoon.  The blister was totally worth it!

The Florea Family- Denver Family Photographer

I can't believe that it has been 3 years since I first connected with this family.  Look at sweet little Jaylene at our first session when she was just 6 months old.



Now she is 3 and is just as cute as ever!



This family captured my heart from the beginning but now, 3 years later, I am head over heals for them.  I always look forward to our sessions!




I am not sure what it is about them but I think Jennifer and I are kindred spirits.  And Jaylene is one of my favorites too.  I can't leave Josh and his easy going nature, cowboy hat and big ol' trucks out.  He is always so easy to work with and just happy to be with his girls.




Miss Jaylene was so happy to see me and wanted to walk with me, talk with me......and at the end of the session she REALLY wanted me to come and have dinner with them.  How cute is that??  Too bad I already had plans or I would have joined them for dinner.  Jennifer texted me later that Jaylene kept asking if Ms. Lisa was coming to dinner.  Sigh.  I love that girl to pieces.





Jennifer has the BEST taste in kids clothes.  She picks out the cutest outfits, hats and accessories!





She also trusts me completely so when I make suggestions about timing and location, she follows my advise and we always end up with the BEST lighting.
 


I mean...seriously.  



I love the laughter, smiles and pure joy that emanate from this child!  You can tell that she is well loved and therefore she loves well in return!




I wish these three lived in my neighborhood so we could hang out all the time and not just once a year!!  You guys want to move to Littleton, right?!



The only sad thing about this post is that it will be another year before I get to see them again.



I love you Floreas.  Next year, let's do dinner afterwards.  I would hate to dissapoint Jaylene again.
