Happy New Year 2017! Here are a few cute baby portraits!


What better way to start the new year than with a really cute baby, right? This little guy below is all smiles and I loved capturing those happy grins.

Funny thing, during the shoot, he didn’t seem too concerned with the election, taxes, how much money he makes, or how good-looking he is (although, let’s be honest, he doesn’t have to worry here). Babies have a purity about them that is magical. Where else do we find such true innocence? He is cute to look at, but there is a lesson in that smile too. Here’s to not crying over spilled milk. Thanks little dude.

Happy baby!

Castle Rock Family Portraits


I recently had the opportunity to work with about 20 members of the Owens family. What a fun group of people! We found a great spot with an awesome barn and other old structures.  Working with this many people at once can be challenging, but the family was super easy-going and made it a pleasure.

Below are a few of my faves, but there are many! Thanks again to the families!

Road to the Rockies


It’s been a while since I posted, miss me? Moving to a new state and starting a new job, turns out, is pretty time-consuming. Who would’ve thought? I have had to put my photography on a bit of a back-burner, but I hope to get things going again here soon! I was out in the Rockies this last weekend and it was amazing.

The shot below is a small step in the right direction. I hope to better hone my landscape skills out here with such ample subjects!

Snow? What’s that?


Coming from the deserts and beaches of California, we aren’t too familiar with snow….fast forward to us living in Colorado and that is quickly changing! We find ourselves going outside in heavy snow to just wander around and be in it, which is fun! Totally new life experiences for us that I am glad we will be able to look back on.

People Showcase Showdown!


Tonight I updated the landing page on my portfolio, showcasing some of my favorite people photos! Check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think. I go back and forth with showcasing my people photos and my landscape photos. I hope you enjoy this iteration while it lasts! 🙂

I want to do more work with people in my new state of Colorado. I am definitely not lacking in nature subjects! With this focus, I want to show this side of my work more clearly. I gravitate toward natural light (outdoors) portraits anyways, so the combination of my landscape love and people should make for some fun images.

If you know anyone in the greater Denver area who may enjoy some fantastic photos of themselves or loved ones, feel free to share my name!

Nature. ‘Nuff said


There really isn’t a lot to say about this one. It was amazing in person and this image really takes me back to the moment.

Nature is amazing.

Rocky Mountain National Park


First of all, Happy December! Hasn’t this year flown by? Sheesh.

Anyways – I just visited the Rocky Mountain National Park for the first time this last weekend…and it was absolutely beautiful, epic, awe-inspiring. The image below is a glimpse into this place’s beauty which delivers abundantly on a grand scale and on smaller, more intimate levels. I definitely plan on going back for more exploration. I captured this image while standing on

For those of you that have been here before, are there any recommended hikes/spots you would suggest visiting? I am very open to suggestions!

This is me getting the shot above. Standing on the ice-covered stream made it that much more fun!
