6 month portraits | C Family | Denver Family Photographer

I've realized in the past few months that I need to write more about my First Year baby photo plans. I have been getting to see all my wonderful Denver newborn photography clients hitting their milestones, be it 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, their First birthday with smash cakes, or anywhere in between. When I built my website, I wanted it to be simple, but am now realizing I probably need to add a couple more galleries. That 3-9 month old window is one of my very very favorites, especially when we get to shoot on location in some of the beautiful Denver area parks and open spaces. Babies and their families in nature- just how Colorado families should be!

6 months... when they are just pleased as punch to be upright and love watching the world around them. Mommy and Daddy are the light of their lives, and if they happen to be mobile, it's still slow enough to easily catch them!  We call these "Sitter Sessions" because it is a big mile stone, turning 6 months. Half a year since they joined the world and made their parent's heart love like it has never loved before. Half a year of newness, and it shows in their eyes- absolutely everything is new. 

They radiate joy. Their parents radiate joy. It's the best to be around.

Family session in the Mountains | Evergreen, CO Family Photographer

One of my favorite things about living in the Denver Metro area, is we are only minutes from escaping to the mountains.  I always feel a little jealous of the families I photograph in Evergreen- you get mountains without being forever from a Target (haha- my priorities...) 

I shot little Mr. S's newborn photos, and was so honored that I got to shoot his milestone session. Newly sitting babies make me so happy. Their gentle wobble, arms out for balance, face full of pride at their accomplishment- it's one of my favorite moments to capture.

18 months old | Denver Child Photographer

December and January kick my rear emotionally. Three of my babies have birthdays, another hits her half birthday a few days later. It's like a constant barrage of reminders that they are growing up too fast. I apologize in advance for another giant mush-ball post about my babies (there will be a lot of them this year).

18monthphotos

Parenting is overwhelming sometimes (okay, like, a lot of the time), and I certainly have moments where I wish they would be more responsible,  less likely to draw on the wall or paint the toilet seat with bright red nail polish (it doesn't come off!), that they wouldn't feel like they need to be in the bathroom with me, or that they might for once clean up after themselves without me having to loom over them.

For the most part though?  I absolutely and unequivocally love the "little".  When the world is new, and the hardest thing in your life is emotionally coping with mom telling you that you may not have a cookie. They aren't jaded, they still think I'm reasonably cool, and they see the best in everyone. 

18monthphoto

I try so hard to drink it all in. To take joy from everything. To laugh at the newly decorated toilet seat.  To relish the early mornings when I'm tired but they come running to me still with such enthusiasm for their morning snuggles. I want them to see they are so wanted. Write it all over my face. You are SO wanted. I am SO excited to see you, even if you kept my up all night.

I never imaged being without a baby in the house.  Harper is 18 months old today.  She has an opinion and a vocabulary to back it up. Her chubby thighs are beginning to thin out from running and climbing. Her soft shoulders and chubby tummy are starting to change- build muscle- and are no longer pure dough baby. She is headed directly toward full on toddler, and I am watching the baby slip away. Normally I'm growing a sibling at this point... but since she is our last, it's a whole new adventure to know her firsts are also my last firsts.  

She's already so desperate to be a big kid... I imagine I won't be able to contain the baby for long. She's the beginning of a new chapter, the closure of another.  She's can out sass her sisters and is as sweet as honey. She's as daring as the boys and as smart as they come.  She wants to know what everything is- and can say most words she learns very very clearly. Her favorite word is No. She love love loves her daddy, and knows if mommy or daddy says no she can go work one of her siblings to try and get it (watch out little stinker!)

She thinks nursing is still the coolest.  She's my most selective eater yet, and if it isn't chicken, cheese, pasta, avocado or something frozen she probably won't eat it. It will be interesting to see if she keeps that or starts to explore more. 

She loves to be held and not always by me.  She reverses into our laps to sit down- we've taken to saying "beep! beep! beep!" like a truck backing up when we see her spin around to sit down. She loves music and to sing.  Her favorites are Itsy Bitsy Spider and Bunny, Bunny.  She counts to 2, holding up her fingers then says "shush!" and is really good at shouting the parts of the alphabet she knows. She can command the siblings to move the remote "Down! Up! Side! Side!", and very suddenly loves Mou-mou (Mickey Mouse).

I am so thankful for the invention of the smart phone, because I chronicle the day to day so much better with it, both in videos and still images, and she won't wonder why, as the 5th, she has less pictures- because I take a LOT. I am sure in the days that come, there will be much mischief making, and I will try my hardest to laugh through it (and remember to take pictures before I clean it up), because soon enough it will be gone, and my walls will be cleaner, as will my floors, but it will come at the cost of the "little".  

Happy Half Birthday Harps.

The year to write it all down. | Denver Lifestyle Newborn Photography

We recently decided that Harper would be our last baby.  This is the first time I've actually written it down, so forgive me as I wipe away some tears...

newbornfeet

See, I would have a dozen babies if we had the means.  I adore being a mom to many, and Chris loves being a dad- we simply recognized we probably shouldn't go on having babies forever.  We are allowing our family to grow in new ways.

This has been particularly hard for me as my oldest 2 turn 8 & 10 this week.  It goes SO painfully fast.  That old adage "The days are long but the years are fast" has never felt more true.  My days of nursing are in the near future, going to draw to a close.  The newborns I cuddle will go back to the arms of their mommies.  My babies are quickly becoming kids and tweens.

In reflecting on all of this, I decided I need to write it all down before I forget.  That means lots more personal posts this year.  I'm planning on writing down as much as I can recall, the good, the not so glorious, the beautiful, and the not.  I'm going to do my best to do bits and pieces, photos included of course.  It is really mostly for me, but I hope it will also be for my kids, and maybe there will be something helpful in there for you too.

Impressions from November & December : a personal project

I'm breaking the rules and posting more than 8 images... But it was a fun couple months!  I didn't take very many pictures on my camera this holiday season.  I kind of promised myself I would drink in more of the days together and worry less about photographing it all. In December Teagan turned 5- which is a big birthday in our house.  The girls get jewelry boxes on their 5th birthday that are heirloom quality.  It's pretty special.  We had a great time shooting pictures for holiday cards (which isn't standard... usually they are rushed and filled with crying!  haha!) - It was a good couple of months. When you've looked around here, head over and visit Antonia to see her lovely work!

‘Impressions‘ is a creative project by an eclectic group of female photographers from around the globe. We aim to share the inspiration behind what we do through our bi-monthly posts.

Every other month, we will be sharing 8 images that tell the story of what inspired us in the previous weeks: our families, nature, weather, or maybe even work itself! We are free to explore the meaning of ‘impressions’, and it is likely to change month to month.

{6 days new} | Denver Newborn Photographer | Posed + Lifestyle Photography session

Happy 2015!  I hope your holidays were amazing.

Combo Newborn sessions are my favorites I think. We start with beautifully posed images of baby, and then move into lifestyle portraits, and I get the chance to capture families just loving each other.   It's a great alternative for mommies who might not feel up for posed images of themselves.  I encourage parents to be in pictures (even if no one else sees them), as these precious moments with new baby are fleeting, and I promise you- children treasure them when they are adults.

2014 Fall Mini Sessions Part 2 | Denver Family Photographer

I hold Mini Sessions twice a year, and my fall sessions are always a big hit.  It's a great way to get your holiday pictures (and cards!) taken care of in one fell swoop.  It's a huge gift to me too, seeing all these wonderful families.  This year we shot at Cherry Creek Reservoir. It was stunning- and we couldn't have BEGGED for better weather.

Impressions Blog Circle | July & August edition | Denver Portrait Photographer

 

It's Impression blog circle time!  When you're done here, please visit Natalie to see what the last 2 months have brought her.

I've (as usual) been rather lack-luster about blogging.  So here we are in September, and I still haven't blogged about our newest addition, Harper!  She arrived in July and absolutely lights up our life.  I was hoping this post would be her birth story, but that will come soon.  We had quite the adventure for her coming earthside.  I can't wait to share it with you along with the images and video my dear friend Sarah captured for us.  Prepare yourself for a bit of photo overload... I had a hard time narrowing it down!  Here are a few of our first 2 months together  (she's going to be 2 months tomorrow!!  Holy moly!) If you want to see more of our day, follow me on Instagram @brinkstreet

Newborns look so wise to me.  I believe they know something we don't when they are that fresh.  She is so deeply loved.  Her brothers studied her for hours.  Also, am I the only baby foot junky?  The deep wrinkles just make me swoon. HarperBlog1

Some of the newborn images I took of her and her siblings.  Sam had photos with her when our wonderful friend Cristine came to take photos!  (Another blog post for sharing!)

HarperBlog2

Then suddenly, she was a month old.  Teagan is insane about her. She isn't sure how she feels about Teagan ;)

HarperBlog3

Here she is at 7 weeks.  Hopefully it won't take me 2 months to share more for you!

Impressions Blog Circle | May & June edition | Denver Portrait Photographer

May and June were busy, busy months for us!  Noah graduated from Kindergarten, Sam had his first "beach" experience (a reservoir is about as beach as you get in Colorado), we went to birthday parties and saw family!  It's been a wonderful start to our summer and a fantastic way to wait for our newest addition who will be here any day now!

After you spend some time here, head over to Vinita's blog to see what they were up to this May and June!

Baby K | Denver Maternity Photographer

As a photographer, you have these little moments when you haven't met someone before, and they pull up in their car, and you just get giddy because you know that they are going to make your job very, very easy.  This was one of those times.  I did a little happy dance when they pulled up in their car.  Gorgeous couple, gorgeous baby bump.

DenverMaternityPhotographer

I can't wait to meet their new addition in April!  (And baby is a surprise!  How fun is that?!!)  Thank you so much for trusting me with your images.

Impressions Blog Circle | December Edition | Denver Family Photographer

December was a very busy month. So busy that 99% of my personal pictures are still sitting on a card in my office. I'm 3 short, bt here's a little tiny bit of our month. We had a beautiful Christmas, including our youngest upgrading to a toddler bed (that's been an adventure!). Then on the 26th, my February birth clients called to tell me her water broke. 6 weeks early, but 5 pounds, 6 ounces, and breathing room air- he was ready to meet the world! He has a few weeks in the NICU ahead of him as he learns how to eat, but I feel so blessed to have spent the end of the year getting to know him and his family. image image image image image

Go visit Lena to see what she captured this month!

Impressions Blog Circle | October Edition | Denver Family Photographer

'Impressions' is a creative project by an eclectic group of female photographers from around the globe. We aim to share the inspiration behind what we do through our monthly posts. On the 8th of each month, we will be sharing 8 images that tell the story of what inspired us in the previous weeks: our families, nature, weather, or maybe even work itself!

We all know I've been a horrible blogger, so to help change that, and to help all of you get too know my and my crew, I joined a circle of incredibly talented women to share a little bit of  "us" every month.  Make sure you click through all of the links.  These women are amazing!!

Here is a little bit of our October.  It was filled with mini sessions and lots of other business- it was so hard to choose only 8!

I had 4 very full days of mini sessions last month (blog posts to come!), but here are a few of my personal favorites.

Denver Family Photographer

Halloween is our opportunity to go over the top with dress up.  Wigs, hand made costumes- candy is low on the totem pole compared to the characters they get to play.  Sam wasn't feeling the individual pictures, but I love how how looks like a little stuffed horse.

Baby Z | Denver Family and Newborn Photographer

Denver_Family_Newborn_PhotographerThe newest addition to the M. Family has arrived!  We arranged a special kind of newborn session for him, because his daddy was only in town for a couple of days.  Matt is doing rounds at different hospitals around the country to decide where they will move to next year for his residency. (I have to admit I'm not happy about this!)

I am in love with these images because they just ooze of the closeness this family has.  Proud daddy, amazing mommy, awesome big sister, and pure newness.  I've know them since big sister was about to arrive.  These pictures marked almost 3 years of capturing images of their family.  Wow.  I am so very blessed to know them.
