Boulder Baby Photographer - Christmas Photos with 6 month old Elijah

My latest favorite subject is Baby Elijah who just turned 6 months old. His mom chose the baby's first year package so we're photographing him many times this first year and earlier photos are online at this link….

and Elijah's 6 month slideshow is online here…

and Mom let me experiment with my set up for bokeh light effects - letting the lights in the background fall out of focus, but keeping the subject in focus. As you can see it worked really well most of the time… I love the last shot where 2 year old Brother Oliver wanted to stare at the lights rather than at the camera!

Boulder Baby Photographer - Baby Elijah

I've photographed baby Elijah 4 times already in his first 6 months! Mom chose the baby's first year package with newborn, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months, and then we added in Elijah's baptism! I love families that really appreciate the value of photography and capturing these moments that they grow out of so quickly!

Boulder Children's Photographer - Family Portraits in Estes Park

I had the pleasure of going up to Estes Park last week to photograph this beautiful little family - the Mom is a teacher at Eagle Rock School. The boys were full of energy so I had to use some of my favorite "techniques" for keeping them smiling and getting some natural smiles!

The full slideshow is online here...

Some favorite photos that I've taken with There with Care or that have connected me with There with Care include this beautiful photo of Amanda. I photographed beautiful Amanda in February 2009 with Flashes of Hope. This image was taken in the Bone Marrow Transplant section of the Aurora Children's Hospital. When we moved to Boulder last year, I decided I wanted to photograph more children with critical illness, because they are the most meaningful photos I take all year long and There with Care was a great fit. So when I walked into my training last February, this beautiful photo of Amanda was hanging on the wall of the Boulder There with Care office and it always means so much to me. Honored to have my photograph displayed prominently and especially of beautiful Amanda who passed away later that year.

Boulder Family Portraits - meet the Smith Family!

I have been doing a fall family photo for the Smith Family for the last 5 years - since Hayden was a toddler! And now she's seven! We've never visited the same location twice, and their photos are always adorable. We had to bribe a few smiles out of Hayden but playing in the leaves on this beautiful day coaxed some smiles out of everyone naturally!
