Another fun family to shoot. They had a beautiful house and yard so it worked well to do the shoot there. This family was so much fun to hang out with.










I had a big family shoot. This was a great family. The Grandma wanted a big family shot while her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were in town. It was fun to watch this special family and see how much they all adore "Grandma" and "Grandpa". I could tell it was a proud and special day for the grandparents. 






Tball

It was fun to shoot this little Tball team. They were so great. They had a LOT of energy, but we managed to get a few team pics and action shots. I love uniforms in pictures. They just pop! There is something so fun to see everyone dressed the same.

Had so much fun with this family. I loved this shoot. Easy and Fun. It has been raining so much here in Colorado so it has made everything really green. It is beautiful. Glad we could capture the green. 

I know I say this about all the families I shoot, but this is another great one. Such good people.

Team pics


This was my first time taking official Team Pictures for a Sports team. I was sort of nervous about it - but it turned out to be tons of fun. The coach of this team wanted a team pic for a big banner to hang up at the games. The girls were great and we had some fun doing different poses. 

BTW, the "in" thing with sports pictures is the "serious face" look. (at least that is what the girls told me) The girls really wanted to look "serious" for a lot of pics. I just went with it.:)

Engagements are fun. This couple was super relaxed and easy. 

I try not to make the couple pose in a cheesy way. This couple was perfect when it came to natural.

Two sisters wanted to have pics of their daughters together. These little ones were so adorable. However, they would not stay still, even when I pulled out all my normal tricks. They were also super grumpy about the whole time..there was something about that dang big black camera in their face. Luckily the moms were comfortable with them just playing...and then I just tried to capture them when they were happy and calm. 

I decided that mother and daughter pics are probably my most favorite. 

Photography Tip:
Because these two cuties were a little apprehensive about the camera being close to them, I decided to just shoot with my zoom lens and stay far away. They seemed to be calmer if I did that, and I could get some great shots. Sometimes a shoot is not going to go the way you hope, but you adapt and just get what you can.

I hadn't done a "Maternity" shoot for a long time. They don't come around as often as they used to.:) 

This couple was so great. So casual and relaxed.

We were walking through snow and mud and they were troopers. What a special time for them expecting their first baby. That truly is a special time in a couple's life. 

Glad I could capture their excitement and capture the two of them before this sweet baby comes.

My brother and his family. I got to take a couple photos of each of my siblings. I loved shooting on the sandy beach with the beautiful ocean in the background. So fun!

Photography Tip: If you are having a hard time with harsh direct sunlight all around, put the subjects at an angle. Then you shoot at an angle. Sunlight is always better shinning on the side rather than directly in front or behind the subjects. (in my opinion)
