Sage & Waverly | A Denver Motherhood Session

For a little while I've been working on the motherhood sessions and I have to say I'm just dead in love with them. Maybe it's my own motherhood tinting my impressions, maybe it's because I'm meeting the most amazing mothers, maybe its because this project is just so honest, real and full of the complexity of mothering.

Whats the best thing about mothering? “ You know when you’re right at that edge, and want to maybe murder your child? But then they do something so sweet and cute and you feel like your heart with explode for loving them so much?

These portraits are some true hearts work; I love to see the joy and the bonds between moms and their children. The patience, the tears, the kisses, the cuddles and of course, the tubs!

Baby Lia | A Denver Newborn Story

Meeting Shea & Zadie was an amazing experience when I made Shea's maternity portraits. Her open vulnerability and deep calm love helped shape the direction of my work this fall. So, needless to say, I was thrilled to come back and make their newborn portraits.

While I was over, I was struck by the patience, care and intention Shea has with her daughters. She took the time to engage with each of their feelings and tempers with gentle words and touch.

Before and After | A little BTS editing for you!

Before and After | A little BTS editing for you!

I'm a huge HUGE fan of before and afters; I grew up in the eighties when a make-over montage was a critical part of every movie. When I started photography, I worked in darkrooms and lived and breathed Ansel Adam's system of burning and dodging ( the Zone system, check it out!).

 

I decided it would be fun to share some before and afters of my own work here on the blog once a week. 

SOOC - ‘the clean straight out of camera shot’
Post edit - adjusted for color and tone, cropped for emphasis, and straightened. Slight exposure adjustments, some very slight skin editing
