Father’s Day surprise

Their mom hired me to do photos of the kids as a Father’s Day gift for her husband. I love this idea! We did the pictures on the day he left town on business. Here are a few of my favorites.

Loved these boys!

These two brothers are hilarious. They diligently stood still and followed directions for the more posed shots, and then when I told them to be goofy, they really let loose. I loved seeing them crack up!

Last Boulder session

This is the third (and final) session I shot in Boulder over Christmas. These girls are so stinkin’ pretty. They were really into the whole photo session, too. They made up poses to do–like, “Us pretending to be asleep!” and “Being baby seals!” Here are some of my favorites. Especially this first one. This one should be HUGE on their walls, don’t you think????

Another Boulder session

Here’s another family I photographed in Boulder. I hate admitting that I had a hard time with photos. But I did have a hard time with these two kids. Not the kids’ faults, just their ages (4 and 2), which didn’t lend themselves to, say, sitting in one spot for pictures. I spent too long trying to get pics in a setting that I knew wasn’t working, and I should have stopped and figured out something else sooner. After we moved into a different spot, I got some better shots. And I still managed to get several that I really like. 🙂

And the last one–creepy or funny? It’s the first time the Virgin Mary has ever been in one of my photographs.

Little doll

I managed to fit in some time to do a couple photo sessions in Boulder while I was up there over Christmas. Unlike San Diego and Houston, the weather there is NOT reliably warm all winter (which is, of course, one of the reasons I love it so much there–I love winter!), so I could not assume ahead of time that we could do outdoor sessions on a certain day. I scheduled them fairly last-minute so we could hopefully rely on the weather forecast, and we lucked out with weather in the upper 30s/low 40s–plenty warm to shoot outside. (I know–the Houston and SD people reading this are all going, “WHAT?” But this is Boulder, remember.)

My first session was with this almost-two-year-old. (I did these just a week before her birthday.) Her mom is also a photographer, so I was especially honored that they asked me to do these photos.
