My best friend got married, meaning of course, I made a trip back to the other side of the state, for the wedding. Before the reception the next day her family decided to do a big group photo session. It was their first family pictures in, like 17 years. Meaning, actual professional family photo, where everyone was there. {well, almost} It’s hard when you have a BIG family! With a large group, and lots of little kids, you have to be FAST. Kids only last so long being patient and happy to have their pictures taken. We were over and done with in 25 minutes. Impressive, right? It also helped that they had swedish fish for a bribe if they were good! We’re not above that when it comes to getting “the shot”. I’d even say the kiddos were better behaved than the adults… haha {i can say that} So, yes, we were missing someone, but I was able to do some photoshopping, and make it a complete family portrait. Just don’t judge too harshly on the “editing”. It was the best I could do, given the circumstances. I love how they turned out though. Hopefully these are photos they will treasure for years to come! I just love this family.

baby boy “L” || cokeville wy newborn photographer

Posted by on Dec 30, 2014 in Blog, Little Ones, Portraits | 0 comments

Over the Christmas Break I was finally able to take newborn photos for my sister-in-law. I remember doing her last babies photos so well, that it seems crazy to already be doing another one! They are so similar too. It might be hard to tell them apart, from their baby photos. I’ve said it before, but I LOVE window light. It’s so beautiful. Which, is exactly what I used for this session. You have to be patient with newborns. We only needed one little break for a feeding. Taffy also wanted some photos of her with her baby. Of course! Every mom wants a sweet photo of her with her sweet newborn baby. I love how this session turned out. And loved snuggling that new baby!

This was a simple, easy, photo session. We only wanted a few photos, for the special occasion. My sister is going on a mission and we needed some photos of her before she leaves! I still can’t believe it’s the middle of December and we’re outside without coats on! It’s fine, as long as we have a White Christmas! :)

It’s crazy that there isn’t snow on the ground! I love getting out of the house, and a photography session is right up in my top reasons to get out! Brittany is a friend from my hometown, and old neighbor. We met up at the UW campus for this shoot. Working with 2 littles can be hard, but we were able to be fast, keep them busy, and luckily got some great shots while we were outside. We headed inside later, but the girls had HAD it. Darn it. It’s hard to be little! But it was great to meet up, and to be outside in December in just sweaters!

This sweet little boys great-grandma wanted photographs of her great-grandson, so we arranged it. I met up with everyone at the great-grandma’s house, and we had a fabulous little session. Little “e” is about 8 months old, and such a little sweetie. They had amazing props and outfits ready to go. Window light, it’s magical. I love love how this session turned out. It was literally picture perfect. Enjoy!

This “winter” weather we are having {or more appropriately NOT having} has been amazing. For this photo shoot we headed up to the Lindstrom’s ranch about 20 minutes outside of Laramie. It’s beautiful out there. The Lindstrom’s are such a fun family and check out the blonde, dark & red hair?? It’s great! We had a great time riding around on 4-wheelers, walking thru the trees, splashing rocks in the stream, and just visiting. It was one of the most fun sessions I have ever done. Enjoy!

mary c. || laramie wy senior photographer

Posted by on Oct 6, 2014 in Blog, Portraits, Seniors | 0 comments

I love one-on-one sessions, mostly, I’m referring to seniors. High school seniors have such personality. I love their excitement for life, and what their future holds in store for them. A senior photo session is a great way to capture them in their current “prime of life”. They have so much adventure ahead. So much unknown. For parents, it’s capturing their child in some of their last moments under their roof. Mary is an amazing girl, athlete, friend and young woman. She works hard at everything she does, and is kind to everyone. Good Luck in all your future endeavors Mary! You deserve the best!

I love fall. The colors, cooler weather, crisp air, falling leaves, it’s all just so, cozy. This session was just that. A perfect, fall photography session. I have had the chance of taking this families photos for several years now, and it’s crazy how much things change, but yet stay the same! Laramie has some beautiful spots for shooting, and I think this one might be my favorite. Especially with all the fall foliage. Beautiful.

taylor family || laramie wy couple photographer

Posted by on Sep 20, 2014 in Blog, Family, Portraits | 0 comments

I was able to photograph this couple for their 49th wedding anniversary. What a milestone. They have the most beautiful backyard, and I was also able to photograph them in their home. I think sometimes people are weary of “indoor” photography, when it’s not a studio.. but window light is the next best light, after open shade, or overcast outside. I love window light. It’s so beautiful. So, don’t be afraid of indoor photography, even in your OWN home. It can be beautiful. {especially where we live, and it seems to be cold 9 months out of the year. it’s a great solution for photographing during those long cold winter months.}

One of my favorite things, that I think is crucial for great photography, is great lighting. This session could not have had better lighting. It was perfectly overcast right up until the last minute of our session. Which made for some beautiful photos! There’s a lot of factors that play into capturing great photos, and we had them all working together perfectly! Besides, it’s hard to get a bad photo when you are this in love… oh the bliss. So excited to add another sister-in-law to the family!
