Officially a Colorado native

Yesterday, I had the wonderful privilege of FINALLY meeting young William Taylor. Finally.

William is one of the newest members of the Taylor family and I have waited almost a year to see him.

Kristi and I have know each other for a long time. Back to the days of early photoJ class. She then later became one of my right-hand people when she joined me on the PhotoDesk at the Metropolitan, Metro State University of Denver’s school paper. We further bonded when we both were dating the men of the Sport’s desk at the newspaper. All of us had adventure’s to Pueblo for regional basketball tournaments and there was even a memory of locking key’s in my boyfriend’s car that all three of us took up to Evergreen for an assignment for class.

Kristi was one of my first wedding’s that I shot as an official business. She and her husband Zac gave me the chance to work on my wedding portfolio and the opportunity to capture a day, year’s in the making that would start them on their next big adventure. And these two have encountered all sorts of adventures. After their apartment building caught fire in Fort Collins three years ago, they decided to pack up their Jeep Cherokee and head South, not really sure where they were going to end up.

They ended up eventually in Athens, Georgia. Amazingly enough at the exact same time I flew there on a whim, and got stuck in the snow storm of the decade. I shot some photos fro Kristi’s literary business on the trip down there and because I am her seceret-keeper, she let on a little whisper that she was pregnant. Keeping THAT seceret in is pretty difficult, but I was able to handle it until they publicly announced it.

I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph both Kristi’s baby shower for William AND her maternity portraits. But since little (he is tiny) William was born last August, I just did not have the chance to go out and meet him or see him on a few of Kristi’s whirl-wind visits to Colorado. So, this week they are out and I was not about to loose the chance of seeing him. I booked a day early on. And though William probably won’t remember meeting me, it is documented that it was Epic.

Since William was “officially” born in Georgia, we had to do something to make him a native, and what easier way to do so than take his little but to Casa Bonita!

I truly am grateful for all the Taylor’s have done to support me in my business, from wedding(S) I’ve shot to baby showers – and family portraits, the entire clan has truly become part of my family as well and I absolutely love the fact that I can watch and document as their families grow and progress through life.

Kristi is the proud owner of her social media business, she knows all! And Zac is the sports editor at the Gainesville Times, where he has grown and thrived, living his dream of being a sports reporter. πŸ™‚

Here’s to continuing the adventure with the next generation.

He is sleeping.

 

Tiny toes.

 

 

Baby on the move.

 

William’s first taste of sopapilla.

 

We all agreed he liked it. ALOT.

 

William LOVED the waterfall (but then again, who doesn’t?)

 

This was as long as the hat stayed on his head. He is not a hat guy apparently.

 

William was fearless through Black Bart’s cave! He was so ready to head in he didn’t want to pose for the picture.

 

Even trucked me around while we were hanging out. (photo by Kristi Taylor)

 

He is a happy little waddler! (photo by Kristi Taylor).

Lets celebrate mothers!

Mother’s day has come and gone. Though I don’t understand why there is just one day set aside for the mothers in our lives. I suppose there needs to be one day set so we all remember to get things and show out appreciation because lives are so busy otherwise. But honestly, for mothers, it’s kids day everyday. Can you imagine if there was only one day set aside where our moms appreciate us? Humm…. We don’t like it so much when the tables are turned.

I got to celebrate Kelsey’s baby shower with her last month. This is her’s and Shane’s first baby and they are going to have a little girl in August. The party was decked out in Duck theme and these ladies had so much fun! Congrats to Kelsey and Shane! Can’t wait to see her!

One Year of adventure!

A year ago I was one lucky photographer and friend who got to document the wedding of Chris and Adriana. That was a fun, but slightly chilly day in Pueblo. We might have frozen the bridal party during the group photos … maybe. πŸ˜‰

Happy Anniversary to Chris and Adriana!

So excited to be married!

Boys walking like the Beatles on the way to the ceremony from the hotel.

Adriana’s sister watching her closely. She was one happy flower girl!

Opening prayer for the ceremony.

Taking some down time on the couch … In the bathroom.

Can you say an awesome bridal party? Too much fun was had … even though they were freezing!

This is still the best Father-Daughter dance I’ve seen. Coordinated and everything!

Happy Anniversary to you two Beautiful people. Thank you for letting me capture these moments.

 

Chris and Adriana are also now the proud parents of little Leila. They have such a beautiful family and I’m so happy I’ve been able to follow them a long over this last year.

And one from Adriana’s Maternity Shoot. Had to include Little Leila too!

Little Ailla Rayna Has Arrived!

I’m a night owl. I like to know whats going on and I spend my time editing or browsing photo websites. Tonight however, I was continually checking Facebook to see if Ailla Rayna had made her entrance. As the clock ticked around to 1:00 am Pablo make the official Facebook announcement. I love the Mascorro family I’ve loved them since Pablo and Rachel’s wedding and they have continued to ask me back any time they need photos. I was so excited when Alyssa’s maternity session came up in September. So yes, I’ve been sitting on them, but this morning is the perfect time to show them. Congratulations to Alyssa and David!

A day at the Playground

I am so excited for a few reasons, and they all involve the Pogar/Carlson family.

A few weeks ago Adriana emailed me and told me her husband Chris has started a new videography company and are looking for couples who are looking for video for their weddings. I am so excited to be working with them! They are such a fun couple and have a great background. If you would like info on their work feel free to contact me and I will give you more information.

I also got the privilege to take Adriana’s maternity photos! This was my first maternity shoot, and I gotta say,I really got into it.Β  We had so much fun, Monday was PERFECT! Not to hot, beautiful light and of course Adriana’s beautiful face! She is due at the beginning of July, they are expecting a baby girl!

Enjoy a few photos from the shoot πŸ™‚

This one is just too funny! No idea what is going on here!
