Impressions from January & February : a personal project |Denver Photographer



January was a big month of transitions for the kiddos in our house. Hailey turned 9. I had such mixed emotions, as this is her last year of single digits, her last year before tween, teen, and then adulthood. She is blossoming before our eyes.  She is becoming quite the volleyball player, and has come leaps and bounds in school this year.   I'm so proud of her.

Noah turned 7.  I really like 7. He's so genuine (and a bit rascally too).  He is not such a little kid anymore... I don't know when that happened.

Harper turned 6 months that same week.  Half a year!  How quickly it has passed.

In February I shot my first births since Harper was born.  Sometimes we forget how much we love something until we are immersed in it again. I am so excited to be telling these incredible stories for families.

When you're done here, head over to Leslie's blog and the other amazing photographers to complete the circle.


‘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.



2014 Fall Mini Sessions | Denver Family Photographer

I loved so many images from mini sessions this year... so get ready... this is a 2 part post!  Thank you to all of my families who trust me with their precious images- you honor me. New families, and those I have watched grow for years, thank you for coming to see me this year.









B Family | Union Station | Denver Family Photographer


Mini sessions were a hit this year! We started out downtown Denver at Union Station.  I really really like the new building.  I also really really like this family.  5 of the most beautiful, respectful, wonderful boys in the world.  Their parents are doing an amazing job.



Blue or Pink | Gender Reveal | Denver Maternity Photographer

I have been blessed to know Chloe since my freshmen year in high school.  She has always been the epitome of grace and kindness to me, and she has been even more so through her pregnancies.

We had so much fun creating this announcement!  Big brother Noah was in charge of letting you all know... Is he getting a baby sister?  Or is he getting a baby brother??

A BROTHER!!!!  Congratulations Ryan, Chloe, and Noah!!!



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!
