little bunny foo foo

easter fell within my visit back to georgia, and haddie made a perfect little bunny!

flip-flops and snow

yesterday we decided it was time to get out of denver and do some exploring, so we packed a picnic lunch and  headed to idaho springs for a day of fun, sun, and fly fishing. well, the fun and sun were great, but high winds put the ka-bosh on fishing…

rachel & dave. macon, ga

in the days that i used to come up with fun names for posts, this one would have been: horses & hogs! rachel and dave both ride, but rachel sticks with horses and dave has 4 motorcycles. he’s even fixing one up for the getaway on their wedding

the walker family. kennesaw, ga

emily and i bonded over schoolwork and our first years of teaching, our desire to move away, and the fact that we weren’t ready for kids. of course, that was over 7 years ago, so things have changed quite a bit. emily is an amazing high school

jacey & bryan. lakewood, co engagements

jacey and bryan are saying their i do’s april of next year, but we fit in their engagements early because bryan was expecting a promotion that would move them out of state. in fact, the very day of our session {tuesday}, bryan got the call that

rachel & dave {first look}

Jacey & Bryan {first look}

tomorrow begins my week-long visit back to georgia! it’s going to be a busy week full of baby pics, engagement shoots, family, friends…and cheese dip! but before i head off to the deep {sweet} south singing “oh, atlanta,” i wanted to

khala & nick {coors field engagements}

the purple row marks 5280 ft {1 mi.} above sea level, and our tour guide {larry} found this baseball as a souvenir for nick! khala and nick’s first date was at a rockies game, so where better to take their engagements than at coors field! they decided

the orozco family {chautauqua park, boulder}

it’s a small world. i met bree at church a few weeks ago, and she and ben have been in denver for about 3 years. it turns out that they both grew up in iowa, which is where i was born, and i still have family there. we got to talking more about iowa,

the kross family {sapphire point}

oh. my. goodness. i love this whole series of photos! maddy, in the last pic with me, was one of my students a few years back at fpd, and we’ve kept in touch ever since. i was thrilled when she told me that her family was coming out to colorado to

our anniversary {denver botanic gardens}

today is our eighth wedding anniversary! i’m one lucky lady. {photo taken by jenny evelyn} we wanted to spend the day doing something new in the city, so we headed to the denver botanic gardens. i’ve really been missing the southern spring, so

vignette mishap {eldorado canyon state park}

on saturday we went hiking with mike and emily in eldorado canyon state park. the trail led down to the bottom of the canyon, where the south boulder creek was more of a raging river. now, two days after our hike, i’m still feeling its {painful}

spring’s first green

i admit that i’m longing for a southern spring. i’m so used to green on the trees and flowers blooming by mid-march that waiting an extra few weeks for the plants to wake up has been a bit hard. on sunday, the first day of spring, we were driving

jennifer & jamie {colorado springs, colorado}

jennifer’s wedding day was also her father’s birthday. what a sweet gift! jennifer’s brother flew in for her wedding, and had to leave 15 minutes after the ceremony. what a day! {gotta love a man in uniform.} we snapped this one right

happy national ginger day

most people refer to it as st. patrick’s day, but clearly i’m not most people. besides, national ginger day just seems more fun to me, but that’s probably because i don’t have an ounce of irish blood in me. so, happy national ginger

new blog look coming soon

oh my gosh am i excited! i’ve been working with a friend on a new blog design because i can’t even stand to pull up this one. really and truly, it pains me to open my blog, which may explain why i’ve been having longer absences than normal.

ben & meredith

so i’ve had quite the hiatus from the blog! thankfully, that’s changing, and i plan to be more active around here again with spring and wedding season just around the corner. these are just a few shots from the other day with our friends ben &

Jenny and K’s visit

we were so excited when jenny and koutsunis started planning their trip to denver! but my goodness was it an ordeal to get out here: 1. their tickets were accidentally booked for 10:30 pm, rather than am.  2. they weren’t able to get on an earlier

mom’s visit

mom made it out to denver this week! of course, she had to pick one of the coldest weeks we’ve had this winter, but we still managed to get out quite a bit. the first day she was here we headed up to georgetown and had brunch at the happy cooker. i had

pictul {watermarking made easy}

for my fellow photographer friends out there, you’ve got to try pictul! i used to pull each blog image/collage into photoshop separately to resize and stamp them with my watermark brush, but that meant time wasted while photoshop opened and saved each
