As a photographer, autumn is the busiest time of year. I am so grateful families choose to have me document their lives during this chilly, magical time. I am honored that my clients bring me into their lives. 


I want to highlight some of the reasons why I feel family photos are “worth it!” 

 

  • Holiday season and cards: The first is pretty obvious and straightforward. The holiday season is a wonderful time to show off the kids and share updates with friends and family. I’m always delighted when I receive Holiday cards from my clients. 

 

  • Documenting the stage of life you are in. Some seasons are hectic and filled with kid’s events, programs, parties, sports and hobbies. Some seasons are sleepless with a young baby. Some are busy preparing your child for college, driving tests, and prom! What a great memory it is being able to look back and remember what you were going through that year. 

 

  • The years go by so quickly and before you know it your newborn is in high school. What a joy it is looking back through the years and seeing the missing teeth and the goofy smiles. Suddenly one year your child is taller than you. Having the growth spurts and awkward years documented is priceless. 

 

  • Lastly, you will never regret taking the photos, but you may regret not. Family photos are an investment. They are an undertaking. Coordinating schedules and outfits. Getting the kids fed and on location. Hoping that there are no meltdowns and everyone is happy and smiling. But I promise, you will never regret taking the photos.

When planning family photos one of the biggest struggles is planning outfits and clothing for everyone. I always recommend starting with mom. She can set the tone and create the vibe she’s after. And I think it’s easier to plan the rest around her. 

 

Here is a post helping mom get some ideas on what to wear. 

https://julielivermorephotography.com/fall-dresses-family-photography/

 

Once mom decides what she is wearing you can fill in with kids and partner. I always recommend neutrals for children and babies.

Here are my reasons:

 

  • Neutral clothing helps showcase the child and they are not overshadowed or consumed by their outfit. There is a time and place for fun dressed up outfits, But I want to capture your little one in their true essence. 
  • You want to avoid anything too “matchy matchy.” Coordinating is the goal, but we don’t want to all be matching in the same colors. Sometimes people can get lost in a sea of colors. 
  • I love photos that are timeless through the years. Sticking to a more neutral color pallet helps us achieve long lasting fashion and outfits.  

 

I’m not saying we can’t have fun with our kid’s clothing, but following these simple guidelines will really help your photo session turn out extra special!

 

Here are some examples and links: 

Corduroy pants 

Waffle Knit Sweater

It’s hard to believe but fall is right around the corner. It is the busiest time for photographers, and for good reason. The heat is easing up, families are on a more predictable schedule, everyone has their sights on the upcoming holidays, and best of all; summer fades into gorgeous colorful autumn. 

Some would argue that fall fashion is the best and I would have to agree. The rich colors, all the textures, layers, jackets, boots. All the cozy comfort. (Writing this makes me want a chai latte.) 

Every year there are fun trends, and specific colors and styles that dominate the fashion world. I am also a sucker for tried and true classics. 

Orange had a big moment this spring and summer and we see that carry through to fall with lots of burnt dusty orange, copper and shades of pumpkin spice. 

We are also seeing bold prints, lots of textured fabrics, and jewel tones. 

I have linked some lovely dress options that would be perfect for fall family photos!

Sometimes a family photo session can sound or feel stressful. I have some tips to make your family pictures a great memory. Of course a lot of planning goes into getting everyone ready for photos, but I think it can actually be a wonderful family memory. 

 

  1. Don’t stress about how your kids are going to behave, leave that in the car. When mom is relaxed and happy everyone tends to be more relaxed too. Kids will be kids and you can’t micromanage how children might act during the session. But when the parents are happy and relaxed, kids tend to be as well. 
  2. Leave your phone in your bag or your car. Think of your family photo session as a date with your family. It is a time to play and be with one another. Kids can tell when you are distracted or rushing through something and the experience will not be the same. Use your photo session as a way to connect with each other.
  3. Play with your kids! Be goofy, laugh, smile, say silly things. Kiss and hug them. You know what your child enjoys. Walk around together. Just be present with them. I will make the magic happen behind the lens, don’t worry about that part. Just simply enjoy being with your family. 
  4. Perhaps my favorite tip is: get ice cream after! I am not above bribery, and who doesn’t love having an ice cream date? It is a big hit with the whole family. It gives you something to look forward to after your session, and really makes the evening feel like a special night. 

 

I really think family photo sessions can be a special and fun memory. The payoff of organizing and planning everything will be even greater when the whole family enjoys themselves. The pictures are sweeter too.

Temperatures are heating up in Denver and kids are out of school. Hello Summer! What a joyous time of year. But I know it can come with challenges.
Young or old, it can be difficult some days to decide what to do with our kiddos while they are out of school. 

Here are some Summer Activities For Denver Families for when you’re just not sure what to do!

  • Water: Days in Colorado can heat up quickly! One of my family’s favorite ways to cope with the heat is to cool off in a pool! One of our favorites is Water World. It’s always a hit with all ages. https://www.waterworldcolorado.com/ 

For younger children, the Bay Aquatic Park is so much fun. Children are $7 and adults are $9. (3 and under are free) https://broomfield.org/2651/The-Bay-Aquatic-Park

If splash pads are more your speed check these out. https://www.coloradoparent.com/denver-area-splash-pads/ 

  • Zoo: If your family isn’t a water fan and prefers outdoor fun, I recommend the Denver Zoo. My pro tips would be to pack a picnic lunch and go around noon, as the crowds tend to be earlier in the morning. There are plenty of tables for eating, snacks throughout, and a train and carousel. https://denverzoo.org/ 
  • Museums: Sometimes it is way too hot to take little ones outside. These days ae great fir museums. A hidden gem is the WOW! Children’s museum. Best for young children, offering educational, hands-on exhibits. https://wowchildrensmuseum.org/visit/ 
  • Treats: What better way to enjoy summer than yummy pizza and ice cream?! Our favorite outing in the summer is Lucky Pie and Sweet cow ice cream. Great food, cool patio scene, and an ice cream shop attached. Both parents and kids will enjoy themselves. https://www.luckypiepizza.com/

Enjoy this special, yet quick time with your families. Summer always goes by too quickly.

Mothers truly make the world go round. There is nothing moms can’t do! They spend all year organizing activities, planning birthday parties, taking care of kiddos when they are sick, being supportive to their partners, and putting everyone’s needs ahead of their own. 

 

Mother’s Day is such a special day to say “thank you!” Although I feel like nothing is quite satisfactory enough for all mom’s do, here are some ideas to show gratitude. 

 

  • A spa day- Plan a spa/ salon/ nail day for your mom! Moms love feeling pampered and might enjoy getting a manicure or a pedicure. Maybe a facial or a fresh hair do! This is a safe bet. Bonus points for planning it so mom doesn’t have to!
  • These blankets are so soft and cozy. I imagine any mom would love to cuddle up with one of these and a book, her favorite movie, or even a glass of wine. https://www.barefootdreams.com/collections/blankets-throws
  • Moms love smelling good and knowing you thought about her. Perfume is always a good option. Trust me, a mom can never have too much perfume. I personally have and love these. https://www.chloe.com/us/fragrance_cod46467852ed.html https://us.viktor-rolf.com/flowerbomb/
  • These tee shirts are so great! The small shop used to be ran out of her house, and it has grown to a huge warehouse with many fabulous employees. Its mother ran, and her heart and soul goes into each piece. She creates the designs and prints them herself. She has every option for moms, grandmothers, step moms, you name it! I guarantee you can find a design to satisfy your needs for the mom in your life. https://littlemamashirtshop.com/collections/mothers-day-2022
  • A photo session! So often moms take pictures of their kids and so rarely get into a photo with her children. Sometimes she will stress to coordinate a big photoshoot. Mother’s Day minis are an easy and quick way to get gorgeous photos of moms with her kids. She will cherish the pictures forever. There are a couple of spots left! 
  • Never underestimate the power of a homemade card, or a homemade treat. Make her favorite meal. Anything that shows gratitude and appreciation is going to make her feel special!

 

Make sure to grab a spot at our Mother’s Day Mini session if you haven’t already! You don’t want to miss this year’s!

It’s hard to believe the school year is coming to an end soon and we can start daydreaming about summer months. 

So many families choose to do family photos in the fall. While autumn photos have a special place in my heart, I think summer family sessions are the real hidden gem. 

 

5 Reasons To Book a Summer Session:

 

  1. Kids are out of school. The school year is hectic enough without trying to squeeze in a family photo session. Take advantage of the summer time when there is less homework, fewer sports and activities, and a more relaxed bedtime. Make sure to grab ice cream after your session and truly enjoy all that summer magic! 
  2. A later sunset. In the summer the sunset is later. But this allows flexibility with your evening. And potentially saves you from needing to take time off of work. Go ahead and eat dinner before your session too. Full kids= happier kids. 
  3. Summer scenery and landscape. The trees and flowers in the summer are so lush and full of life. They photograph sharply and create an entirely different visual than in the fall. Brighter and more colorful. Often the sunsets in summer time are pink and vibrant. Plus, the weather is warmer and more predictable. 
  4. Fewer crowds. Although our entire state is full of beautiful locations, the best ones can get crowded in those busy fall months. In the summertime there are less people and more options.
  5. Get ahead of the holiday game. Booking a family session in the summer takes one task off of your plate for the coming holiday season. By already having photos, you can easily make holiday cards and get them sent out on time! It is a relief to have gorgeous photos ready to go.  

The summer time truly is a lovely time to take family photos. Enjoy the warmer months and slower pace.

As a family photographer, one of my favorite aspects is photographing brand new life. It is an absolute honor taking newborn photos. Those sleepy squishy days go by so quickly. It’s amazing watching my clients grow through the years. 

 

I recommend having your newborn session in your home because it is the most comfortable. Let’s chat about why I recommend an in home session versus a studio session for newborns: 

 

  • You are most comfortable in your own home, physically and mentally. No matter how you got your baby in your arms, it is easiest to do an in-home session. Regardless of your recovery, it is not easy loading up everything a new baby needs; let me come to you. 

 

  • Siblings- If you have other children, they have been going through some big changes. Especially in those early days. Let them play, let them have a snack, let them be right by your side. Children will cooperate the best when they are comfortable in their own environment.

 

  • Brand new babies often need to eat, need a diaper change, or even an outfit change! If these little things pop up it is no big deal to give them what they need right in your own home. 

 

  • Nursery- you worked hard on that beautiful nursery! Let’s capture it and show it off. It’s amazing to look back through the years and remember those feelings of excitement waiting for your new bundle of joy to arrive! 

 

  • No nursery, no problem! Let’s cuddle in bed or on a couch. I want to capture the real moments of you as a new family. The comfort of your own home is truly authentic. A studio can feel too “posy” and forced. Relax and let me capture the magic.

As spring and summer approach, traveling begins to pick up. There are plenty of family reunions, graduations, showers and weddings to attend. 

If you have little ones, it can be a daunting task. But I promise it can be great.  I would love to share some tips to help ease your mind. 

 

  • Be prepared. Sounds silly, but having ample snacks, toys and entertainment will get you really far. I like having some special snacks and toys that they don’t normally get to enjoy at home because it feels extra special on the plane. Be sure to download any shows, movies, or music to your device before a flight! 
  • Lower expectations. Kids will be kids. Babies will be babies. Don’t expect certain things out of them that you normally wouldn’t. Don’t have unrealistic expectations of them, or yourself. Children can sense when adults are stressed. Try not to sweat small things and don’t expect perfection. Remember that so many people have traveled with children and they are understanding about it. I guarantee if you go with an open mind and low expectations of how things will go, you will have a successful travel day.
  • Life hack: If you can rent a car seat through your rental car at your destination, this will save you the hassle of dragging it to the airport. 

 

Traveling with young children is a lot of work. But I promise it is worth it. You won’t get back the early years with your kids. They grow up so quickly. Take the trip! Make the memories. 

 

LCD Writing Tablet

 

This LCD writing tablet provides endless drawing fun, comes in multiple colors, fits into small backpacks, and looks like a real tablet. 

 

Snack Spinner

This snack container has entertainment built in. It has a button that spins the container (think fidget spinner) So you get a snack and toy in one! It has multiple compartments for multiple snacks!

With the weather warming up, it’s the perfect time to explore our beautiful city with your family, significant other or bestie. Here are my top 10 things to do in Boulder or Denver this spring…check them out or use them as a starting point to brainstorm some other amazing adventures in our beautiful state of Colorado! Let me know what other spots should have made the list!

Dushanbe Teahouse (Boulder)

Grab brunch with a girlfriend or schedule a special afternoon tea with your mom!

Rebecca’s Herbal Apothecary (Boulder)

Attend a live or online class to make natural self-care items or fill up a shopping cart of loose tea and other bulk ingredients to create natural remedies.

Avanti Boulder (Boulder)

Enjoy a drink on the rooftop at sunset or sample various cuisines at this upscale food court!

The Wild Animal Sanctuary (Keenesburg)

Such a different experience than a zoo. View rescued animals from an elevated walkway. Come to learn and support these amazing lions, tigers, bears and wolves rescued from abusive situations.

Lovin Farm Animal Sanctuary (Erie)

An amazing way to connect and support rescued farm animals!! Can’t wait to visit with my family.

Movement Gym (Denver)

The whole family will love hitting up an indoor climbing gym this spring! This one has several locations throughout Colorado, but check out the rock gym nearest you for intro classes and youth programs!

Anne U White Trail Boulder (Boulder)

Perfect beginner hike for kids or family not used to the elevation! This trail crosses over a creek several times and is so lush and beautiful in late spring!

Airhouse Adventure Park (Arvada)

Arcade, mini-golf, dodge ball, ropes course…what can’t you do at this indoor park?

Sushi-Rama (Denver)

With several locations in the Denver area, this conveyor-belt style sushi restaurant is so much fun!

The Inventing Room (Denver)

Willy Wonka fans will delight in this tasty experience! They are currently requiring advanced tickets to visit their dessert shop!!!
