running around chautauqua

this was the best way to spend my sunday morning - outside photographing a seven year old. having a love of hannah montana and eloise, she could strike a pose at a drop of a dime. jumping, running, laughing, ellie was busy and was willing to try just about anything.

at times, i felt i was working with a model for the garnet hill kids catalog. check out the second photo down.

happy holidays

I met up with this little one on Sunday to capture her for the family's holiday cards. She was simply too much. So many smiles, expressions, and sounds from this stylish little one. Look at her pink retro car!

a happy little guy

this first portrait is one of my favorites from 2008. i love the matching expression on the dog and the little guy's face. too much. the weather has been beautiful in boulder and we played both inside and outside on saturday. a few different outfits gave this little model many different looks. such a sweet little guy.

It was another gorgeous fall day in boulder and Truman was so handsome in his fall outfit. I have been photographing this little guy since he was 10 days old. Now he is 14 months. During the session, Truman would bust out a loud contagious laugh. It was one of the cutest things.

I look forward to seeing which photo ends up on your holiday card this year.

winter baby

i love photographing pregnant women in the fall because it reminds me of my own pregnancy.
my daughter will be two in a couple of weeks and i really can't believe how fast the time has flown by. her childhood has been very well documented up until a few weeks ago. now when i go to take her picture she says "no cheese mama, no cheese." i have to bribe her with a cookie and her reply is "two, two cookies" and then she smiles. the cookie only works sometimes.

last week was just the perfect fall weekend. heather looked so beautiful and it was so much fun to capture her at this time in her life. i look forward to meeting your soon in a the weeks to come.

Say Cheese

In early October, I had the great opportunity to work again with the Children's Museum of Denver at one of their annual fundraising events, Say Cheese. Professional photographers donate their time and their art to create family portraits. All the proceeds from the session and prints go the the museum. It is an annual event in Denver and one not to be missed.

Here are a few photos from the day. Looking forward to next year's event.

What a glorious fall weekend it was in boulder. It was the perfect fall day on Saturday just what you would expect fall to be. Nichole is in her last month of pregnancy and can't wait to meet her daughter. I am looking forward to seeing them all in a month for newborn photos.

Keep me posted!

M.I.L.K - photo contest

The history behind M.I.L.K is in 1999,British publisher Hodder Headline (now Hachette Livre) held a global photographic competition called M.I.L.K. (Moments of Intimacy, Laughter and Kinship). Inspired by the 1950s landmark photographic exhibition, 'The Family of Man', M.I.L.K. began as an epic global search to find unique and geographically diverse images on the themes of friendship, family and love. It was not only the richest in photographic history, but also one of the most significant, drawing participation from 17,000 professional and amateur photographers in 164 countries. In total over 40,000 images were received by M.I.L.K., including at least four Pulitzer Prize winners. The 300 winning images were chosen by the Chief Judge, Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt, and were the basis for three books entitled Family, Friendship and Love and an international touring exhibition launched at New York's Grand Central Terminal in 2001.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original M.I.L.K. competition, M.I.L.K. Licensing (now a subsidiary of PQ Blackwell), again in association with Elliott Erwitt, is conducting a new competition founded on the themes of friends, families, lovers and laughter to create a new collection of 150 images.

I love Elliott Erwitt's images. In my opinion, making someone laugh and smile is a great talent. If you are a dog lover, you will really appreciate his work. He is a master of juxtaposition.

M.I.L.K is a photo contest whose theme is friends, family, lovers and laughter.
