Colorado 'IN THE LIGHT' Family Sessions

Focus on Connection

My biggest goal for your session is for you to walk away with photos that showcase the bonds that tie your family together. I will always aim to get you the Holiday card photo somewhere in your session, but I'm willing to bet the photos you end up loving the most (and the ones that make my heart sing) are the ones where moms are snuggling their boys, or dads are spinning their girls dizzy. Some of the very best images are the ones where you forget I am there, because it's about YOUR family! I support families of all make ups, ethnicities, orientations, races, etc. I adore documenting your love and connections no matter what form they come in.

Covid 19

Your health and safety is top priority for me! I will remain socially distanced at all times, with a mask on during our time together. But don't worry, I will still be able to provide plenty of fun and interactive guidance for you and your family to ensure lots of fabulous photos while making sure we stay safe! If you have any specific needs or concerns regarding Covid-19 and your shoot- please reach out!


In the Light Sessions conducted outdoors either just after sunrise or just before sunset for optimal lighting conditions. If you would like an indoor session with a more documentary feel, please consider booking a Storytelling Session. I have lots of places love photographing across the Denver Metro area and beyond. Whether you want a city park, urban street art or mountain scenery, Colorado has it all. Lots of places do require permits and often additional fees may apply, however if you have a spot in mind I always do my best to make your wishes come true! For some suggestions on spots around the Denver Metro area and beyond, take a peek here.
