Brighton High School Seniors, Jakob

 Jakob's session was a shorter one.  I usually worry a little that I won't have enough time to get a really good smile, but I didn't need to worry about that with Jakob.  He was wonderful and had a great smile.

Brighton High School Senior Photography; Alyssa

I am trying to get stuff done so I can go off and play for a rare Saturday without portrait sessions!  I feel like Speedy Gonzalez trying to get things uploaded, posted, washed and packed!  I really didn't want to leave without posting at least 2 blogs... Well, I guess 1 will do.  So here goes Alyssa's!  She was wonderful and lovely!  Totally loved her session!
Alyssa is very talented person!  I thoroughly enjoyed her session!  She was so willing to do just about everything I asked, even after the mosquitoes ate her alive - at 9 in the morning!  She got a few really big welts!  I felt so bad!  Usually mosquitoes aren't what I worry about at 9am.
 I love it when people bring props!  She brought her guitar and her clarinet!  I love that she wanted to include these in her session. 




 Alyssa had such a great smile and non-smile, I love how versatile she was and how comfortable she was doing either one!

 I love these with the clarinet!

Thornton High School Senior Pictures, Lauren

I thoroughly enjoyed Lauren's Senior Pictures!  She has a quick tongue, isn't afraid to use it and just exudes self confidence!  I love it when young woman have such confidence.  You don't see it that often, and she definitely has it!  The day we met she had just interviewed for a job at an ice rink and she said eventually she wanted her own hockey team to manage.  I definitely think she could pull it off!  And with grace, humor and everyone would have fun while working hard!
 
I also was so pleased that I could do something different with my chair!  I had thought of putting it in the water a few weeks ago, but all the water I have been around is either too high or too low.  I was so excited to try it out here!  And it worked beautifully!


 It was so nice to see her excitement with the flag!  I love this idea for a prop!  It is absolutely adorable!

 Yes, of course she has an Av's jersey!  Would you expect anything else?? 
 I absolutely LOVED these in the river with the hat!  They are so sassy and cute!

 My all time favorite!




 
 I love that she went down the slide!  I often say that H.S. Seniors will do anything I ask and sometimes they'll even ask "how high?"  But they don't always do things that they may deem as childish.  I see nothing wrong in swinging on a swing or sliding down a slide, but often times they do.  And I just adore teens that don't feel self conscious doing these things!

Denver Family Portraits, Washington Park, Tami and her adorable girls

Tami was a referral from one of my beloved friends in Denver and as Tami and I talked I was surprised at how many times we could have run into each other!  She used to live in Brighton, but moved to Denver.  And all the time she lived here we didn't run into each other, but our Denver connection is how we met.  And she owns a liquor store in the neighborhood that I grew up in for a few years as a child.  AND lives in the neighborhood my great grandmother lived in for most of her twenties.   Funny how the world works!
 
Anyhoo!  Here are some of Tami's pictures!  Her mom joined them for a few, which was great to get some generational photos!  Her mom was such a big help!  She was so wonderful!  What a great mother daughter relationship they have.  It was fabulous to see!
 We took these pictures because Claire is turning 1!  I absolutely LOVE this age!  They are so precious and loving and starting to explore their big, huge world!

 Look at those eyes!  Love them!



 I love this look!  I am pretty sure this will be close to her teenage glare stare!
 Phew!  And then she smiles!
So precious!
 I love this little girls face!  So cute!
 Oh my gosh!  Lily was such a big help!  She was so fun and awesome to photograph!  And she loved my umbrella, which made for some great photos!
 Grandma with her sweet angels!

Broomfield Family Photography; the Reynold's

The Reynold's were an awesome family!  I enjoyed photographing them in their beautiful backyard.  The boys were such riots, there were 3 of them, 2 older, 1 younger.  Ben, the little one kept wanting me to take a picture of this and that.  And this over here and that over there.  He had quite the imagination.  Whenever I suggested he do something, he had to think about it, but then decided it was a good idea and quickly obliged.  Such a cutie!
I photographed this family for a neighborhood magazine and I was so glad to have met them!  They were so gracious and kind.  I really love when I get to meet such nice people.  Jason is a headhunter and has just started his own company and was very excited about it.  I loved their enthusiasm!  His company is Innovative Search Group and I wish them all the luck in the world!






 I am sure that Julian and Keegan get really annoyed at their younger brother (observe below) and his little antics, but he is so stinking cute!  I hope they don't get too annoyed for long!  And actually, they really weren't too annoyed with him for the photo shoot, so I am thinking they are awesome and not like most families.  I say this snicker, because I am sure there is some normalcy there.  It's nice to dream.
