I met this lovely family when their daughter, Lily, became one of my 2015 Senior Models.  I immediately fell in love with them all!  If you know the Taft family, you completely understand why.  You kind of just want to hang around them because they are so, well, just incredibly nice!

When we began planning their Family Session the scenic Cache La Poudre River seemed like the perfect location since Mr. Taft is an avid fisherman.   Once this was decided, we worked on clothing options for each member of the family that would coordinate with the greens and blues of the river and the plans to redecorate the family room where the photos would be displayed.  Mrs. Taft and her daughters did an amazing job of pulling it all together!

 The day of their Family Portrait Session began with styling appointments at Trios Aveda Salon and Spa for Mom and her daughters.  It was pouring rain when they arrived at the studio for their professional make up application with Sara Dozier of MAC Cosmetics but these ladies stayed dry thanks to Dad and his umbrella.  What a trooper, serving as shuttle driver and protector of the newly styled hair!  Thankfully when we arrived at the river, the sun was shining!  It was even warm enough that standing in the river didn't make our feet freeze!

Next year, both girls will be away at college and I love knowing that they have beautiful canvases in their family room to remind them of this day spent together.
