2014 Year in Review

Happy New Year!

2014 was so very amazing, fun, hard, fulfilling, exhausting and also so very enlightening to say the least. Reflecting on 2014 was quite wonderful. The things we now know and have experienced from just twelve months ago are truly a gift.  They all have lead to this new year and another year at life and love!

**Although I did not blog much at all on the family blog, I have made a mission to blog posts to catch up on the past couple of years on the lifestyle and family blog.  But please do check out the video to catch up on some of the work from the past year:).**

We have been so blessed to have crossed paths with all the people that allowed us into their lives and photograph their happiest moments yet again for another year. We get to be a part of those memories forever. This was our busiest year to date and we are so incredibly grateful. We started off the year with some fun time in the snow with our family, then our first wedding of the year was of the beautiful Savannah Guthrie (of the Today Show) to Michael Feldman in Tucson, Arizona.  What a delight to seeing our photographs of them on the news and in People magazine along with some other events throughout the year.  Our work took us mainly through Colorado as well as NYC for weddings and families and to photograph more lovely people that we know we will be in touch with for a long time.  We also got to work with new people in the wedding industry and ones that we love seeing more and more.  Looking back to where we began, we are loving where we are headed and so grateful for the path we have taken to get to 2015.

2015 is going to be a great year and we look forward to all it has to bring!  We will be making some positive business and life changes as we move forward to better help our all aspects of our life, so that we can be the best for our family, our work and our play time.  Thank you to all of our clients for allowing us to photograph your lives. We are so thankful for the you and everyone we had the chance to meet, work with and make friendships with that will forever be in our hearts.

Cheers to 2015 and for the very memorable year of 2014.  Please enjoy our favorite moments of 2014 in photographs.  The world is quite small, so I am sure you might see someone you recognize in there.

Wheldon Family

ST PETERSBURG FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER 

I just love this family so much.  I love to be a part of their memories and cherish the time I spend photographing them.  For privacy reasons I do not post all their images throughout the years, but these are some mutual favorites that we love from last Fall that I get to share on the blog.  To see these two sweet boys grow has been such a joy for me.  I look forward to seeing them each year.  From the bottom of my heart, I love my clients so much and feel so connected to them all.  I seriously love my job.

St. Petersburg, Florida is such a beautiful city and I love the scenery and architecture of this gorgeous beach community.  What a lovely place to be for sure.

DESTINATION FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

 Where you’re a photographer and artist, it is so hard to not take your camera with you everywhere.  Sometimes Daniel and I love to just enjoy the moments rather than capture it and will put aside our camera for the love of the moment and memory itself for just us, but then there are the other times where we know we want to capture some memories for us to have for our girls and family memories.  We want them to remember everything we did together and how much we love them.

We thought we would start off on small road trips before they get older and start expecting more grandeur trips.  What fun it was too.  It was fun seeing a few places we have never been then showing the girls White Sands National Monument where Daniel and I both went often growing up with our friends and family. We traveled through Taos, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, the Large Array, White Sands and back up to the Four Corners and then to Durango. We loved every moment of the road trip, well minus a little car sickness and cleanup and just under a million “are we there yets,” but that just added to the memories we made this Spring Break.  I love spending time with my three loves and absolutely LOVE what Daniel did for us this trip. He set up the entire thing and it was so wonderful.  We had such a great time together as a family.  Daniel wanted to put together a time lapse of our trip, so with just over about 4,000 frames, here it is.  I just love it. I will cherish this forever as will the girls.  A huge thank you to my love, Daniel.  There are also some other beautiful frames that we took for family photographs that we will post soon.

Please enjoy this little snippet into our real life. We are just a normal family that are so lucky to have an abundance of love in our lives, a career we absolutely love and a simple life that makes us so incredibly grateful for everything that comes our way. We feel so incredibly blessed.

DENVER COLORADO FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

I just LOVE this family to pieces.  They are real. They are amazing.  They let me just document them as I want to.  I couldn’t ask for better people to document.  The conversations we have are so wonderful and true.  I have been photographing them for so long now that we are friends and I love our relationship with one another.  Their kids are so sweet and I love their personalities.  They shine behind and in front of the cameras.  They have the such great parents so it is a joy to see their personalities come out even more when I photograph them.  That is what I love when I get to document families over time.  I love that they are so open to anything.  Life should be that way.  Life is too short for anything else. So my heartfelt appreciation and love to this sweet family for giving me permission to photograph and showcase them in such an honest and artistic manner.

They thought it would be so fun to stay at the Four Seasons Denver to have a stay cation in Denver. It was so perfect.  The luxury hotel even offered a kids package that is so much fun with kids robes, tent and candy to greet the kids.

We had a great day for little ~j~’s first birthday and to show me his debut in walking too.  You can see their families growth in age in the website and blog in previous posts.  I am so incredibly honored that they chose me to document their life in these amazing stages.  I feel so blessed that I can become such a huge part of their memories and my memories as well.

Here are just some of the images from their shoot!

LOVE!!

DURANGO COLORADO PHOTOGRAPHER

Sigh.  I love how sweet this family is.  I had so much fun documenting them and would love to even do an all day session to photograph their life even more.  This was only a snippet into their day and they are so much fun.

I love when a family just let’s me do what I do and document them the way they are together.  That is what I love the most.  I want an authentic capture through my lens.   Not perfection, just real life. Real love. Real everything.

Life is too short for anything else.  I truly enjoy photographing sweet real families that love each other so very much.

Their mom is a design genius and has made their home into a photographer’s dream for open light and a lot of family fun.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their photo shoot.

LOVE!!
