Families Who Play: The G Family {Highlands Ranch Family Photographer}

Another family with a young man going off to college...that makes me both excited and tearful all at once.  Of course, family pictures are in order on an occasion like that!  However, I would say this was a mix between family pictures and family play time....which is my FAVORITE!!  I love how much this family laughed and played with each other!  (Especially with teenagers in the mix. Sometimes they don't like to play so much,,,probably because moms and dads are so boring when you are that age!)  They brought their puppy and a fun, big frame to make the session unique to them!  

Love it when moms and dads are full of smiles and playfulness with one another!!

Thanks G Family!!  I had a great time with all!  Good luck to that awesome, freshman, young man headed to college too!!  (And to everyone else who will miss him a lot!!)

New Adventures in Life: The T Family {Denver Family Photographer}

I thought about entitling this post "How to Embarrass Your Graduate" because the other title of "Saying Goodbye to Your Kids" is just too sad!  I photographed this young man a year ago at the beginning of his senior year.  His mom called me the other day for a quick session before they dropped him off at college. adventures are so good!  And difficult too!  And family pictures are always in order when any transition is happening!! 

So glad to be with you, T Family!!  I'll hang out with you guys any day!

And Matthew....may you

Families Who Play: The B Family {Denver Family Photographer}

I think this session was a late Father's Day gift for the oldest member of the tribe.  What it turned into was a gift to ME to be able to play with some AWESOME kiddos and the adults they brought along with them!

Sometimes when you ask kids to jump as high as they can, they all don't do it at the same time!!

Until they do!  Way to go, young ones!!

Oh the difference between boys and girls.....

Happy Father's Day, sir!  This is a wonderful group of people to call "family"!!
