More from this and other shoots from the past year ++ starting this week for this blog.
I have been meaning to update this blog with all the families and shoots we have had over the past couple years, but the time just goes by to quickly and weddings have been in full swing.
So, it is now on my list and I can’t wait to share the beautiful families and people I have been able to photographer.

2013 Year in Review
” Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.”
We don’t even know where to begin to describe 2013. This was such an emotional year in our personal and work lives. For the work portion of our lives, we met a lot of truly beautiful people, reconnected with many people we have photographed over the years and watch grow and we also witnessed a LOT of love being exchanged from them all. It was a beautiful thing for sure. Our love for documenting weddings was further developed in 2013 as our brides & grooms let us photograph them the way we see things through our lenses. The trust they put in us was amazing and we have been humbled by the love they showed. And each year families grow up in front of our lenses which makes our hearts overflow with happiness. We are forever grateful for our clients.
In our personal lives, we watched our daughters grow up even more and it makes us want to slow down time. The days go by too quickly. We want our girls to not only see the love we witness all the time, but feel it, as that is what is most important in life: true love and real relationships. They always ask to see the photographs when we are back from wedding or family sessions. We are sure to foster their love for weddings and photography…and probably for wedding dresses too. They see that we love what we do and feel the connection we make with people. We want them to take this knowledge and use it in their lives to grow and thrive in life and love. We also had a couple of beautiful souls that we had the utmost pleasure and honor of knowing and photographing pass away. They touched our lives and we are blessed to have known them and know they are watching over their loved ones. They were incredible women. We have so much gratitude for everyone we meet, hold close to us and cross paths with. Thank you so much to all our family, friends and clients that believe in us, our work and feel a connection with us and our work to want to be a part of our lives. It means the world to us.
We hope that 2014 sparkles as much as 2013 did. From what we know so far, it is shaping up to be just that. And for that our heart overflows. We look forward to the moments in 2014 that will continue to take our breath away and inspire us to be better and fill our lives with love and joy.
The video is of our amazing clients (with a few of our daughters sprinkled in there too) and art from weddings, street photography, new babies, children and families. These are just some of our favorite photographs from clients that have allowed us to share the images in our body of work from this past year. We have not had a chance to blog a lot of these images, so more from those sessions will be coming up on the blogs soon.

Blu is THE fabulous clothing boutique in Durango, Colorado.
This was a shoot for their website portfolio and marketing materials. It also showcased the gorgeous Nina and the generations of her family members and their style.
It was fun to work on this with Nina and her Blu girls. She has created a lifestyle following and it is perfect for Durango as she brings a world-traveler vantage point to her boutique. She and her team always showcase beautiful Blu-girls around the world in their athletic and fun endeavors.
Nina is a giver of style, her passion, and her time. She also participates in Richard Branson’s Virgin Unite.
Blu’s philosophy says it all:
“We are small town fashionistas bringing chic style to the mountains. Contemporary fashion is our trend. Premium denim is our obsession. We play outside. We give back through charity. And we do all this with a glass of wine in hand. Our store is located in the heart of Durango, Colorado and offers only the best for our Blu girls.”

This lovely family made their way to their family home in Telluride to spend time together. They were such a joy to document. I love Telluride and all the beautiful aspen trees. What a perfect setting to relax and enjoy nature and have some family time.

While I catch up on blog posts from family sessions from last year through now, I will also be posting snippets of recent sessions and our life.
Over Memorial weekend, Durango is in full swing with the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic along with loads of fun things to do for families.
We decided to take the girls to the carnival and it was a blast.
We had so much fun and Daniel documented the girls and I having fun.
