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.



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!)


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


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!

Impressions Blog Circle | April edition | Denver Portrait Photographer

Gosh this last month flew.  It was yet another month of me being guilty of not using the big camera for my personal images- but I did take a lot of iphone pictures (I got a new phone for my birthday!).  My goal for this coming summer is to use the camera more with the kids.  I think they've had enough of a break from it- don't you??

April was wonderful- We celebrated my birthday and Easter, saw my hubby's mom for the first time in a long long time, Sam started potty training on his own (can I get a double yay for that one?!), and the kids learned how to mow the lawn!

When you're done here, head over to Lena's Blog.  She went on vacation and is sharing her pictures!  I can't wait to see them!

Impressions Blog Circle | January Edition | Denver Family Photographer

January was a busy and fun month for us.  We had 2 birthdays- Hailey turned 8 and Noah turned 6.  Poor things were sick on their birthdays but we made the best of it and had a blast.  We also had fun telling a version of the little Monkeys jumping on the bed (without the whole falling off and head breaking....)

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 | November Edition | Denver Family Photographer

Holy moly a month passes quickly!  Here we are in December.  Wow.

It was harder to pick only 8 images this month.  We had a lot of birthdays we attended, and that means spending lots of time behind the camera with family around. We had Karate belt testing and crazy hair day.  It was a good month for pictures of our life.

My niece was pretty upset about something- leave it to aunt Kimmie to be so silly that she had to smile despite trying her hardest not to. Heeheehee....

November Impressions Blog Circle

This was a big belt test this month.  Hailey moved from Orange to Purple, and rocked it.  She broke that board like it was her first board.  Noah earned his white belt- and broke the board before any of the teachers were ready!  (Thank you to my hubby for capturing that kick while I was tending to our oh-so-busy toddler)

Crazy Hair Day Impressions Circle

Finally, Crazy hair day.  Because I cannot simply add color to Hailey's hair or make silly braids.  We have to go over the top.  Noah's is hard to see, but there are dinos in his hair, along with a volcanic island on top of his head.  Teagan was not to be left out- so we added some lovely rainbow streaks to her hair.

Go visit Natalie to see her November!



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.

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.
