Welcome baby Leo!

This is Leo, who was six weeks old when we did these portraits a couple of weekends ago. Isn't he adorable? His parents, Jennifer and Simone, are having me chronicle Leo's first year in a series of four photo shoots (you can see their maternity portraits here). If you're interested in a Baby's First Year package, contact me at (719) 321-7990.

Congratulations Jen and Simo! Leo, I can't wait for our next photo shoot!

Yes, he peed on the bed. But it was worth it to get this cute photo.

I love this picture. He's so cute!

I just love how he's looking at his mommy in this image.

The whole crew. A little tired, but extremely happy!

Erin & Christopher's Briarhurst wedding

Here's Erin and Christopher's fabulous wedding at the Briarhurst Manor last month! Everything about this wedding was eye candy. Erin's such a glamorpuss -- she was totally into her wedding, down to the soles of her BCBG shoes. Congrats Erin and Chris!

Ceremony and reception venue: The Briarhurst Manor, Manitou Springs
Bridal gown: Alfred Angelo, from Bridal Elegance
Accomodations: The Cliff House, Manitou Springs
Bride's and bridesmaids' hair: Brandi Trapp at Genesis Salon
Bridesmaid's attire: Mori Lee, from Bridal Elegance
Tuxedos: Gentleman's Choice
Floral Design: Skyway Creations
Cake: Creative Cakes by Carol

Erin got dressed in the Clark Gable suite at the Cliff House.

I would love to know what this conversation was about!

The flower girls (Christopher's nieces) were adorable. Everyone went nuts when they walked up the aisle.

Fabulous bouquet!

Erin's so photogenic it should be illegal.

Erin's "something old" was her grandmother's wristwatch.

I was outside taking a quick break during dinner when they decided to smooch.

Chris, dancing with his mom.

Monica + Mark

Monica and Mark were married at the Garden of the Gods Club on a chilly Saturday in September. I want to thank my friend Brad Walters for stepping in and covering their wedding for me, as I was unexpectedly hospitalized and unable to photograph it myself. Brad did a bang up job despite the low light and rain. Clearly the weather did not dampen anyone's spirits! Monica looked like a goddess, and Mark was so relaxed and handsome. I wish I could have been their to document their joy, but looking at Brad's pictures is the next best thing! Congratulations you two!

The ring pillow and flower girl's basket were handcrafted by loved ones.

Monica gifted her bridesmaids with these beautiful jeweled cuffs.

Giving Monica away. I'm dying to know what was so funny!

Monica and Mark made an NBA-style entrance to their party, complete with sweatbands and high fives.
