Perfect Posture for your Perfect Photos with Colorado Springs Chiropractors

Chiropractor Colorado Springs

When my best friend Paige turned 30 we did a giraffe themed cake smash for her. Now that her son Conor has turned one year old, we decided to do the same cake smash for him! Paige had a blast at her cake smash, but Conor seemed a little more on the fence!

Giraffe Themed Cake Smash

I do most of my newborn sessions in my studio, but every now and then I do a lifestyle newborn session in a client’s home, and it’s pure magic! Photographing baby Pippa with her family was so much fun. Even her furry sibling got in on the shoot! Those sweet puppy eyes may look sad, […]

Interview With A Kid- The Santa Claus Experience

Meet The Dream Big Home Team! They were an absolute blast to work with. All of these pictures were done in studio and lots of changing of clothes and throwing of jewelry was done by all— except me! We had a  “BUNCH” of laughs. Get it? As you can tell, we had some fun recreating […]
