So...it's hard to believe that we can finally declare that it's Spring here!  Well, that may be a little hard to swallow since many of us Denver folks spent last week digging themselves out of 20 inches of snow.  Yes, folks, 20 inches of snow at the end of March!!!  NO!!!!  I'm happy to report that we missed all of the excitement because we were out of the city for Spring Break.  Well, I should say my husband is glad that he missed it since he does all the snow shoveling around here! LOL...

Well, let's get re-focused on why I am blogging...It's Spring time, which means it is the ideal time to start planning for your spring, summer, or fall photo session with me!  Illustrating my point, this was an amazing family session from last year, and it was epic because it had been many years since they last had family photos done.   So here's some of the magic that happened during their shoot!

Curious about how it all worked???  First, you have to make the decision that THIS IS YOUR YEAR for updated family photos.  And let me give you a hint; it's time to update your family photos if the last time you had family photos you had bangs, and you haven't worn bangs since 2009.  So now that you've made your decision, you call me and we agree on the date, you pay your deposit and we start discussing location ideas based on what you want to achieve.  Then, here's the biggie...you start working on pulling those outfits together!  For this family, it was a piece of cake because Mom used to work for one of the premier department stores and she knows her fashion.  You tell me what your high priority family groupings are, and we have a lot of fun getting the shots.  There may be "pretend horse back riding", listening to music, and walking like you're on the fashion runway.  And you will get all of this!!!

Reliving this session just puts a smile on my face.  They rocked it!!!  We rocked it!!!  This is a partnership and when we work together, magic happens in 60-75 minutes, memories are made and I just document them and help you decide how you present it.  Which brings us to the last step....Please don't let these opportunities pass without showcasing your memories.  Hence my hashtag for the year #printthosephotos . I can help you select Wall Art for your memories, because my job is not done once I deliver your gallery to you.
