Sara Before 8am

Before 8am sessions are back!

I’m excited to share with you Sara’s Saturday morning today. We shot this on Valentine’s Day weekend, while Sara, her husband, and her twin 2-year-olds had a leisurely morning making pancakes (pink and heart-shaped for the holiday, even). Check out what Sara’s morning looks like.


And you can also go read what she says about her mornings on the Denver Metro Moms Blog today.

Donna Before 8am

Sunday morning at Donna’s house. We shot this back in May, but time got away from me and I never got around to blogging them. So now as I’m about to start sharing a bunch of new before 8am sessions (I can’t wait!), I thought I’d go back and post this one to get things started.

Donna cracks me up because she has a very dry sense of humor and is very direct and she tells it like it is. She’s a interior designer with an art history background. Here’s a Sunday morning in her house.


Going outside to check on the ladybug house that they set up.


No ladybugs. 🙁


Only trophy animal head I’ve ever liked!


Making cinnamon rolls for breakfast.


Looking up what time the museum opens that they were planning to visit later.


A little modesty.


When you can be measured on the kids’ giraffe height chart. Short people problems. LOL.

Veronica & Matt


Another session from Boston. Veronica, her partner Matt, his twin daughters, and their new baby. I slept at their house, and we started shooting first thing in the morning when baby Maya woke up.

They have a great new (to them) house out in Concord, and a garden where they grow lots of stuff. Matt is a chef, and Veronica also loves to cook, and they were having a barbecue later in the afternoon with friends, so they spent the morning prepping for the party.
