The day arrives for your Family Portrait Session and you are a mix of excitement and trepidation.  It is a perfect Colorado sunny day.  Together, we have planned the details of your session from location to clothing to scheduling it after little Johnny's nap.  So why the trepidation? I often find that families are worried about getting that perfect shot, you know the one where everyone is staring at the camera with a perfect smile.  And, of course, we get those shots.  That is my job.  But during a Family Portrait session, other things happen, too.  Often, these are the images that tell more about your family's personality. And these are the images that become cherished memories, the ones everyone remembers and talks about for years to come.  

The Manning family selected this image as their favorite family portrait and it will be on display in their home.  I love this image of the Manning's!


Family sessions are fun and we goof around A LOT!  So...this image also happened.  And will be part of their family story forever.  This one makes me smile!  Actually, I think I doubled over laughing when it happened!
