Sweet Babies | Denver Newborn Portrait Photographer

Who doesn't love sweet babies? Both of the portrait sessions were within the first 2 weeks of the birth. They are so tiny & it's amazing how too quickly the little ones grow up.

Introducing Hayden...
I had the honor of shooting Hayden's mom, Ashton, maternity portraits. It was so wonderful meeting her sweet baby boy & watching her being an amazing mommy!

Gotta love those baby wrinkles:

The life of a model is hard work!

Sweet baby boy!

Introducing Aila...

What a sweet little baby girl!

Warm fire = cozy nap

Big brother was there & I had to steal a couple portraits of this cutie!

Does this not make you say, "awwww"

It's all about the Family | Denver Family Portrait Photographer

Tis' the season to spend some time with the family! Here are some of my favorites from 2 different family sessions this beautiful, but too short fall!

First was the Weiger's Family. I was able to go to their beautiful home in Evergreen just as the leaves had turned their vibrant yellow:

They were a fun family to shoot:

Sweet Brother & Sister:

Next I had the joy of shooting the Goff family! The weather held out for us & we had a beautiful afternoon!

Great portrait of brother & sister:

I loved the leaves in this one:

Home Sweet, WARM, home:

Corrina loving every minute of it:

The green belt by our house, not so "green"

I haven't done a belly pic in a while. Tomorrow I will be 28 weeks, the beginning of my 3rd trimester!


Snowy Wonderland

It's been snowing here non stop since late last night & is supposed to continue until tomorrow evening! It is so beautiful and fluffy! I love watching (from inside) the delicate snow quickly accumulate covering everything in a thick blanket of white powder. Corrina & I played for a bit outside where I was able to snap some fun pics! Enjoy the winter wonderland:

The view from my bedroom window:

The front of our home:

The berry tree by our mailbox:

Some of the trees in our backyard:

And of course little miss corrina! She loves the snow! Something comes over her when she is in the snow, she becomes quite frisky & loves to run around like a crazy girl! It's funny to watch, because it is not her typical personality!


it is FINISHED...

Yes, the long & torturous kitchen remodel is DONE!!! It has been done for a while, thank goodness, but because the level of involvement it required of our lives I needed a break from it. Hence the tardy post!

First, I just have to brag about what a bad ass my husband is! We found out I was pregnant right before we started the remodel so the weight of the project doubled in size for him. A lot of the stuff I was going to be doing fell on his shoulders. He did an amazing job & now we have a beautiful, functioning kitchen that we can be proud of. Thanks Nat, you are amazing, & look great in a tool belt :)

So here it is the evolution of our kitchen!

the beginning...

behind this wall lies a cramped kitchen

why the builder put in a drop ceiling, I will never know...

this is the other side of the wall in the first picture

mr. beal tear that wall down! (well this might not be as significant as the berlin wall :)

no drywall!!! the light is now shinning through the whole level, love it!

our protection

I see only one "stud" in these pics :)

dry wall & light up!

Cabinets, ugh the freaking cabinets! Believe it or not that was what took us the longest, very tedious! After taking all of the cabinets off the walls & the doors off the cabinets we had to heat gun everything to aid the scraping process which was a very slow & hot process. We then scraped off as much paint as possible, sanded the boogers, cleaned them off with a good sponge bath, 2 coats of primer, & then finally 2 coats of paint inside, outside, top, & bottom! Ugh the cabinets, but they look GOOD!

we had some assistance one weekend from some good friends, thanks scotland's!

let there be attractive light & texture on the dry wall...

a little help hanging the cabinets from the waldas', thanks!

THE FINISHED PROJECT!!!! What a beautiful kitchen!!!!

what wall & confining drop ceiling?

the beautiful oak butcher block counter tops!

new fridge & fridge location, this is where the stove used to be!

love the angel of the new ceiling

the awesome farm house sink with cool marble tile back splash...also notice the 3 butcher block shelves in the corner, love them!

new beautiful gas slide in range! This is where the fridge used to be! And look you can see the whole main level now!!!

the end (FINALLY)
