I’ve known Sasha since I moved to Colorado almost five years ago, so I was thrilled to not only take her engagement photos with Jason, but then also her maternity photos this year. I have always found it an extreme blessing to capture peoples’ life stories, and watching Sasha and Jason’s relationship grow now into parenthood has been amazing!

Sasha has also alway been one for amazing style. So when I found out she was pregnant, I was excited to see how this gorgeous gal pulled off her maternity look. She told me how she was determined not to give up her heels and how it was so hard to keep her style while carrying around her new belly (especially since she is so petite)! This session was at nearly 37 weeks, proving that even though you are extremely pregnant, it is possible to still be the best and most gorgeous version of yourself! Sasha rocked her pregnancy, and a week after these photos were taken, her baby boy was born. I had hoped to be in the delivery room to capture Dominic’s birth, but with my previously planned travel, things didn’t work in our favor. However, I cannot wait to meet baby Dominic and snap some precious photos of him!

There is just something about having a million photos that capture the little moments of your relationship to make you feel miles and miles closer when the one you love is on the other side of the world. Ty asked me to capture photos of him and his girlfriend, Nabille, while he was home over the holidays. He was here for only three short weeks, then went back to Japan to serve our country. These two lovebirds will be doing long distance for a couple more years I believe, and I was so happy to be able to give them a few more precious memories to make them feel closer when they are so far apart.

Can you believe these two? I can’t stop staring at these photos because Eliza & Joseph are remarkable! I love when my couples come to me with ideas, we can combine all our creative thoughts and together make something incredible. Eliza & Joseph wanted their engagement photos to feel as though they stepped straight out of The Great Gatsby, so we all went to work. Me trying to find the perfect venue, and them putting together the perfect look. When I walked in the room after they had gotten dressed, my jaw dropped at how amazing they looked, and I felt a giddy excitement that this shoot would be more than I could even dream of. I couldn’t believe how easily and effortlessly these two fell into character, helping me pull off this breathtaking session at the historic Grant-Humphrey’s Mansion in Denver. We had such an amazing day together! They will be getting married in April in New Orleans.

I met Alyssa & Ryan last fall, and they by far had one of my favorite engagement stories. I mean, I want to do everything they told me about. Since living in Colorado I became much more adventurous, loving the outdoors, hiking and exploring my gorgeous state. So they began to tell me about their experience at Waterton Lake National Park and I was holding my breath in excitement! They had to take a boat, hike miles upon miles, shimmy across the ledge of a cliff, crawl through tunnels and then end at a magnificent view of a mountain lake where Ryan ultimately proposed! It was the perfect place for the perfect moment. And can you imagine holding onto a ring in your pocket during all of that? Talk about an adrenaline rush!

Ryan told Alyssa before they met up with me for their engagement session that I would either love him or hate him by the time the session was done. And this isn’t uncommon for me to here. Most guys hate having engagement photos done, but it’s a rare few that choose to still make it a blast, whether it be with their jokes, sarcasm or willingness to go with the flow. And even though this wasn’t up Ryan’s alley, he still made sure we all had a great time. When they confessed this to me during the session, I found it hilarious because I had so much fun with both of them! So the end of the story is I ended up loving Alyssa and Ryan, capturing their personalities, and laughing the entire session! Not too mention can you believe how unbelievably photogenic these two are?
