The Brainards- Littleton Family Photography

I love this family and I am so thankful that I was able to do their pictures again this year!

First of all, they are adorable.  Can we all agree on that?

Second of all, they are the nicest people you will meet and are willing to do help out everyone around them.  My nephew is on the same team as Aidan and Jeff is one of their coaches.  It is always fun to go see their games and to catch up with Christa.  Also, Asher is the same age as my Jameson and whenever they are together they have a great time playing.

They set a new record for the number of images I delivered for a single session.  I had a hard time narrowing it down!

It was a pretty warm day for October, but that is the kind of fall we have had this year.  Hard to get all cozied up when it is 80 degrees outside.  Come on!  It is time for boot and scarf weather already.  However, I still made them cozy up and wrap a blanket around them is adorable.

I have known these kids for at least 4 years and I can't believe how big they are getting!  They are about the same ages as my kids and I wish all of these kids would quit growing!

Aidan.  Baseball player.  7th grader.  Great kid.

Abby. Cute as can be.  Ballerina. Sweet as pie.

Asher. Totally charming with a tiny hint of mischievousness.  Adorable. 

Jeff and Christa.  Still totally in love and people you want as friends.

And to finish it all off, we had to have some fun!

It is a pleasure to know this amazing family and to be able to see them every year for pictures.

The Grande Family- Golden Family Photography

I first met Mia and her family last year when she was just turning one.  Now she is two and on the move!

She was a little shy, but my little helper George, the monkey, helped smooth the waters.  All of the kids LOVE George and if you look closely he makes it into a photo or two here and there. Whatever gets them to smile, right?

Look at those eyelashes.

It was a beautiful day in Golden and the leaves and water were spectacular.

This little girl loves her mommy and daddy.  Aren't they so cute together?

Laying down pictures are a great way to keep a little one still for more than 2 seconds.  And they love to play "night night" and then we yell "morning!!!" and they open their eyes and laugh.  Works every time.

It's no wonder that Mia is so cute.  Look at her gorgeous mama!!

I love that Kara always brings a pumpkin and Mia's costume to our sessions.  Her birthday is right near Halloween so they can kill two birds with one stone and get pictures of her costume at the same time as family pictures.

Mia was trying to show me how many "fingers" she is.  I love this age.

 It is so fun to be able to compare each year.

It was so good to see you guys again and I am already looking forward to next year and seeing the pumpkin and costume! (This one is my favorite family picture...don't you think?)

The Kriederman Family- Denver Family Photography

Oh my heart.  This session is my new favorite and makes me want to give kisses when I see this little face.

I absolutely loved hanging out with this adorable family and they were so sweet together.  There were so many fantastic images from this session that I had a really hard time narrowing it down.  I think this might be the most images I have delivered to a client with only one kid!

Lisa- perfect job on styling this session.  These outfits are beautiful and scream FALL!

Quinn is still learning to walk and that was really helpful because most kids who are this age can run and they like to run from my camera.  But not Quinn.  She wasn't quite fast enough.  Perhaps that is why I got so many images.

She was also very snuggly and clearly adores her parents as much as they adore her.  These pictures of her playing with mom and dad are some of my all-time favorite.

Lisa is a meteorologist for the National Weather Service so she was watching the skies and trying to pick the perfect day for our session.  I think she did a really good job.  The weather was PERFECT!

I haven't seen facial expressions this good in a while.

Quinn loves sticks.  Isn't that adorable?  I had to get one of her with her stick.  I think it looks a little bit like she is auditioning for a role as a cute baby in Harry Potter.  Don't you think?? 

Lisa brought the dress that their flower girl wore in their wedding and wanted to get some pictures of Quinn wearing it.  Isn't she darling?

Seriously.  I loved meeting this family.  Especially because they are friends with many of my clients and friends.  It was like an instant connection.  I am already looking forward to next year!
