This Arvada, Colorado fall session filled up my cup. We had so much fun running around and playing on this beautiful fall day. This is what photography sessions should be! They should be fun! They should be real! That’s why we always play and run around together and make silly faces and tell silly jokes. I want to capture the happiness, playfulness, and pure joy of childhood.
When I think of Rory, I think of a free spirit. She is so full of life and love, it was just an honor to tell her story. I photographed her a while back too and I recall leaving that session thinking what an amazing little girl she was. When her parents booked me this year, I was so excited to see her again! We had so much fun at her fall portrait session. We did a lot of running, and I mean a lot. There was tons of laughter, twirling in the wind, and skipping.
These images that I captured really convey exactly who she is. That is always my goal when I photograph an Arvada, Colorado fall session. Real life, real stories. Capturing your family as they are in THIS moment. It doesn’t have to be perfect- you are not perfect and that is OK. No one expects you to be, not even for family portraits. Trust me when I say that you will love your images so much more when they are real.
I recently had my family portraits done and I really had to remind myself that its OK that my children are behaving like maniacs and my husband is standing off to the side shaking his head, irritated with the whole thing. I had to tell myself that the photographer was not judging me and my parenting skills (at least I hope he wasn’t, lol). And I REALLY had to remind myself that the reason I hired him was because he captures the imperfect moments. My family is not perfect by any means and that’s what makes it beautiful. It was really hard for me to do this so I GET IT! Trust me when I say that this is what I want – I want my clients to be real. That’s how we get those incredible images, the ones that you will be happy to have and that can be passed down from generation to generation.
I feel so fortunate that I get to call this work. Who else gets to wake up every single day and help families celebrate life & love? I love that I get to tell their story. It is incredible to be able to create a moment in amongst all of the chaos that is new parenthood, where new moms and dads can really just focus on that amazing, tiny human that they created. I am pretty lucky if you ask me!
If you are expecting or know someone who is, I would be honored to craft a completely custom portrait experience for you!
Me too — I can’t wait to start creating YOUR perfect EJP portrait experience!
