Katy | A Denver Motherhood Story

My biggest challenge is balancing my work with my time with my boys. I work so that we can go on fun adventures, but sometimes they take a backseat to my work, and it kills me. I want to show them the importance of a strong work ethic as well as the importance of women who work, but I don't want them to ever feel like my work is more important than they are.

Mona & Co. | An Extended Family Portrait

Normally, I try to keep the number of extended family sessions I do to an absolute minimum. They tend to be very difficult to coordinate, lots of stress for Grandma ( who is nearly always the one who has hired me) and full of crying babies. 

 

 

I have to say, this session has made me rethink my policy. Mona came to me after seeing the portraits I've been making of her grand daughter, Ruby, and I agreed to help plan and execute a family portrait with a 'timeless' quality.  

 

 

 

We spent weeks planning clothing ( another blog post altogether!!), location, and logistics. I spent the same time also wracking my brain for a way to make these images that was more intense and exciting than the standard white polos and jeans party.  

Day of, we had 5 kids and 5 adults and RAIN. I was so worried but miraculously, the rain cleared about 10 minutes before our session and the clouds gave us a wonderful dramatic effect.  We got all our formal set ups done and in between, I spent time trying to really capture the connections and personalities of each family member.

Vintage Dresses and Spring Flowers| A Denver Toddler Mini

Ellie (4 of 12).jpg

Sometimes, as a creative, I get super inspired and impatient. I found a few adorable vintage christening gowns one day while browsing around with my little man and HAD to have them......even though I have no little gal to stuff into them. I was so impatient that day, restless with spring breezes and new ideas so I put up a last minute model call and Ellie's mom answered without any hesitation.

We met near one of my favorite spots to work and got right down to business. Little Ellie was a serious charmer, with her chubby cheeks and adorable shocked faces.

Mom was a total sport and when I begged to "toss Ellie in the creek" she was instantly game. Ellie herself was thrilled beyond all reason and never wanted to get back out.

After much bribery, we managed to get Ellie out of the water and into the second vintage dress; a darling little romper type outfit. It was a perfect fit and Ellie couldn't have looked any cuter!!!!

Towards the end of our very short session, Ellie suddenly had enough of nature ( I am with you girl!) but I couldn't resist grabbing a few images of that sweet chub crying, so precious!!!
