Newborn Portraits - Kaia at 10 days old!

We were able to take maternity portraits for Kaia's mom just a few short days before she was born! And then honored to take newborn photos at just 10 days old. Isn't she adorable?

I LOVE taking these photos... it reminds me of the miracle of life and what is was like peering into the eyes of my own children in those amazing first days of a newborn's life. It is an honor to photograph these beautiful babies and especially so young! Kaia - I'm sorry I got you cold and made you cry... but I LOVE your photos!

and does anyone know what's going on in these last two photos? I really think Kaia might be playing a flute in her little newborn dreams... or maybe Sax in the second photo? Sweet Dreams Kaia!

First Tracks Today at Copper Mountain!

It wasn't a powder day, but it was a beautiful sunny morning and the slopes were groomed perfectly and opened for the Summit Foundation's First Tracks program. Copper Mountain opened a couple ski lifts at 7:30 am for Summit Foundation Donors to ski for 90 minutes of first tracks. It was BEAUTIFUL! We spent most of the time over on the Timberline lift - an amazing morning as you can tell by the photos! Thank you Copper Mountain and Summit Foundation!

2011 Tubbs Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer

Saturday March 5th was the 9th Annual Tubbs Romp to Stomp out breast cancer - held at the Frisco Nordic Center. The registrations were closed at 2,300 snowshoers and it looks like the event will raise over the $135,000 goal set for this year's rompers!

The event slideshow is online here...

And all 600 photos online at this link!

This is the 5th Romp to Stomp we have photographed, and they seem to just get better each year! The colors (mostly PINK!!), the attitudes, the spirits all out for the same cause! Tubbs Snowshoes does a great job of organizing and making this event possible. And what a GREAT community of people I'm proud to be a part of!

And it's too late to ROMP, but you can still DONATE! I recommend any of these great teams: B Casapulla of Frisco, Kristen Harris (W.I.N.O.S.) of Denver, Susan Kober (W.I.N.O.S.) of Denver, Summit Middle School, or Summit Medical Center!

Katie's Four Year Old Portraits

Katie is always such fun to photograph - as I was setting up the studio for her portraits, I was smiling wondering what she would have in store for me. Katie has BIG personality and always knows what she wants! Her last portrait session she brought ALL her dress up clothes and made 3 or 4 outfit changes during the shoot! Such a sparkling little personality! And I love it when she dances!

Trish and Ryan's Keystone Engagement Photos

We chose a snowy day for Trish and Ryan's Engagement photos at Keystone Lodge. They wanted a mountain background but for awhile it was snowing so hard that I didn't think we would really see the mountains! But the snow stopped and the clouds parted and we even got a little sunshine by the end!

And Trish and Ryan were troopers - we all postholed a couple times in the deep snow, and both were willing to climb through some crazy snowy trails to get these great shots by the Snake River. And all the snowflakes were a big bonus! I wish I was to be the wedding photographer, but the wedding will be held in Omaha this fall!
