Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.

With a million things to do in this world and a limited time frame, it is easy to be caught up in the next thing and not truly live in the moment. We live in a world where society thrives on the “next thing.” Yet, photographing this family slowed time down. They live in the moment with each other and really take in each second. These parents do not rush, they live their lives present with their babies they love so dearly. They have embraced parenthood, 3-year-old talks about “Darth Vader being a long lost brother,” and newborn squawks to simply be held. I don’t know how they do it, but it is a beautiful thing to watch.

Life is Beautiful

Because when two people find something that works and they grace that union with a little soul so joyful and content, it is simply beautiful.

This photo shoot was one of those amazing nights where the clients were trusting and playful and the light was mystical. Throw in a crazy cute baby and doting puppy and we caught ourselves looking at the backs of our cameras thinking, “this is magic.” Sometimes life is magical and we have no doubt that this amazing couple will have an incredible future together.

1st Birthday Cake Smash

Birthdays are about reflecting back and looking forward. However, 1st Birthdays are a special day where parents cannot believe how much they have watched their child grow in the first year and yet they feel the desire to stop time and live in that moment forever. We had an awesome and unforgettable time capturing this sweet girl’s first birthday. From the decorations, the adorable dress, to the specially “auntie-made” cupcake-cake, the love for this little girl cannot be mistaken.  Happy Birthday to a sweet and ridiculously happy girl… We love watching you grow up.

While recently looking back through our wildlife, landscape and adventure photographs over the last few years for a couple contests coming up, I kept seeing photos that reminded me of how awesome life is and how great it is to just get outside and play.

Another similarity I kept seeing in these photos was that of my wife and our dog. After collecting and viewing some photos as a whole, I quickly realized how lucky I am, not to only have great subjects to photograph, but that our weekends are cherished and that I have two of the best hiking partners anyone could ever ask for. So I began to dig through more folders, to see what has been overlooked and forgotten about…

Romance is Everything

We have the incredible privilege of being asked to shoot our friends’ weddings. This means that we are front row audience to the romance, excitement, anticipation, and detail that goes into the celebration of a marriage. This also means that we can reminisce about the first time we saw the happy couple together, and the first time it became obvious that they had fallen in love. As we look forward to what 2016 has in store for us, we are excited to be a part of the day where these two officially begin the rest of their life together. They are so meant to be together it is crazy, each photo we created we were stunned by their connection and adoration for each other… We can’t wait Cody & Ellen!!

All is Calm, All is Bright

There is something so magical about this time of the year. People are racing around trying to create perfect moments for each other. They buy the perfect gift, plan the perfect dinner, and try as they may, to make the holidays great for everyone they love. And then there is this amazing new family of four. There is just magic happening between them. There is love, kindness, and warmth. They are simply present and living in the moment with their newest family member. It is unconditional love like this that remind us why people run around at the holidays; they just want to recreate the perfection of a calm Saturday morning with their family.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

If you had been walking in the park the day we were shooting this family, you would have had no choice but to smile. The laughter was loud and the family was crazy in love with these two adorable children. We love clients who arrive dressed up for a photo shoot and then get dirty and play in the fallen leaves. We love the genuine love and the playfulness in this family. We still cannot look at these photos and not smile; it was a whirlwind photo shoot of cuteness everywhere and this family reminded us that it is less about the photo shoot, and more about the moment.
