Lafayette Family Portraits, Heather and Brian

These girls were incredibly active and a bit feisty!  I adored them so much!  I had no problems getting them to interact or do goofy things, I did have some problems getting the little one to pose for pictures - but who wants to sit for posed pictures when there is a whole world to explore??!??  And the thing I loved the most was that their parents let them explore!  That is so important!
 I love, love, love these!  What fun!  And the laughter!  It was contagious!

 Aren't they just the cutest??!??

 So, I was going for the "cute" pose, but the grabbing of the legs turned out to be a game and I thought that was way cuter than a "posed" picture!

 Awwww!  Mom and dad!  They are the greatest!
 For me, these pictures totally show these girl's personalities.  One likes to pose and have her picture taken.  And the other likes thrills and to have her picture taken.

Broomfield Family Pictures, Stephanie and Doug

Stephanie and Doug's family was so amazing and hilariously funny!  I totally loved hanging out with them!  And I loved their house, it was absolutely beautiful!  They are from the mid-west and their floor was from old warehouses in the mid-west, it was amazing!  I love touches like these!


 The kid's all have different sporting loves - I can't even imagine all the driving their parent's have to do!
 I love these with Stephanie and Doug!  They are so cute!

Colorado High School Senior Pictures, My very own son

I know sometimes people get a little anxious to see their pictures...  And I try really hard to get them done quickly.... Unless you happen to be a family member... Then maybe not so much.... My son graduated in 2012.  And today - TODAY - I just finished his Senior Pictures.  I would calculate the months and days it has taken me to finish them, but I would only be adding another 5 minutes to that total and I still have to finish his sister's Senior Pictures.



 This is not normal.  For most High School Seniors.  But totally normal for my kid.

 Oh my!  Those shoes!  I can't believe I let him wear those!  And I really can't believe they are still on his feet and didn't just fall off in the picture!

 And again, not normal... But for my kid... (sigh) NORMAL.




 When he was little and I taking a photography class, I needed a model.  I figured it was a slam dunk, I didn't have to find a model, I had a 5 year old.  But he didn't want to do it and kept expecting me to give him more and more money for every new project.  It was quite annoying and totally not worth the strife and the money I had dish out!  The majority of his childhood he had a hand in front of his face if there was a camera nearby.  So, when it was time to do his Senior Pictures, I said I would hire someone else - anyone he wanted.  But he said it was fine if I did it.  So we did.  (All the images above.)  And then one night, he wanted to go out again.  And again.  I was over the moon!  And it made up for all the strife from his uncaptured childhood!

San Jose High School Senior Pictures, Lexi

It was so exciting to do my beautiful niece's High School Senior Pictures!  We had 1 day to do them and it was the first day of A LOT of rain in California.  That morning I sat with my mother-in-law watching the weather as rivers got bigger, roads were being washed out and the ground was just getting soggy.  And all I could think was "yes!  I finally get to use umbrellas in the rain and not just because I love them."  Not everyone was as excited as I was, but I knew it was doable.  Even if it was a little cold.  I love all the different looks we got!  I don't think we would have done so many different places if it hadn't been raining!  It was a total score for me!







 Lexi is in community and high school theater, she has performed in this building.  It was pretty cool to be there and hear about all her upcoming theater adventures!
 We went into the Westin to get away from the cold and rain.  Usually hotels are helpful and willing to have me there - as long as I stay out of the way of guests and staff.  They were not as accommodating, but luckily they let us stay (I begged and pleaded a little!  Or a whole lot...  But we got to stay!)  I love these images!  They were so much fun!  And what a beautiful room!  It was fantastic!  I couldn't use flash, one of my begging points, and there were some times I really needed just a little bit more light, but it all worked out.

 I love this one!




 I love these images outside!





 Here is a little video of Lexi skipping in the rain!  It is so cute!
