Bird Fur Tees on Santa Fe | Denver Brand Photography

This week is small business week, so I wanted to celebrate with a shout out to one of my favorite small businesses! I’ve been doing a bunch of brand photography for Bird Fur Tees in order to keep up with all their new designs and the sessions are always so much fun!

Bird Fur Tees is the t-shirt company created by my brother, Josh. Josh has always had a quirky sense of humor and an entrepreneurial spirit so this has been the perfect endeavor for him. His shirts are funny, weird, timely, and sometimes even philanthropic. He’s always posting behind the scenes photos, new designs, and funny memes on his Instagram feed.

All our shoots have been in urban parts of Denver with bright, colorful murals as our backdrop. These kinds of locations are my absolute favorites since I’m pretty much addicted to bright colors and patterns. For this shoot, we went to the Santa Fe Arts District. There are so many great galleries, studios, and murals here. I love coming for First Friday for the art walks!

We had a lot of fun at this shoot. There were new friends and old modeling for us. These shoots are always playful, a little bit weird, and full of laughter. At one point, I made all the guys tickle each other. I have video evidence! We even got some behind the scenes photos taken by one of our models, Jackson! I really love some of these new shirts. Someone get me the Beyoncé one please!

We always try to take a few photos of blank t-shirts so Josh can photoshop on new designs before we have a chance to do another photoshoot. This way we can consolidate the shoots and get a bunch of shirts photographed at once, but Josh can still share out his new designs in real time. Plus, he’s gotten really good at photoshop!

Meet Baby N | Documentary Family Photography

For over two decades, I have been the baby of my family, but in late December, that all changed. At our family reunion, I got to meet my new baby cousin, little baby N.

In addition to documenting the whole reunion, I spent some time focusing on the newest addition to the family. I got some cute photos of baby N smiling and laughing but the ones I love the most are the ones with her parents. Storytelling photography is all about the connections between people (and animals!). Capturing a parent’s love for their child is pretty magical.

N’s parents ordered some metal prints of her to hang in the new home they’re building. Metal prints are my favorite! They are modern, they work with any decor or style, and they are super durable (plus, fully recyclable).

Baby Zeke | Denver Documentary Family Photography

Baby Zeke came into the world on April 12, 2015 and I got to photograph him just four days later! I loved being able to photograph this new family in their natural habitat, their home.

I loved being able to photograph what real life with a newborn is like. All the wonders, the struggles, and everything that makes the sleeplessness completely worth it.

A Mother’s Day Story | Denver Family Photographer

This gorgeous woman is going to be a mother…again!

A couple months ago, I reached out to Jennifer about photographing her family to build my storytelling portfolio and she had an even better idea. It turns out the timing could not have been better because she had just found out she was pregnant with her second child.

Jennifer Mason and I met through a photography networking group and we took each other’s headshots back in January. She is a fantastic birth photographer and she inspired me to photograph my first birth last month. (blog post coming soon!)

The Mason’s were excited to announce their big news in a creative way so we got to work dreaming up ideas. We decided to do a family photography session in Denver and play in the park. M gave her mama some cute presents with the help of dad. She is so excited about becoming a big sister!

We did some more exploring around the RiNo arts district but I’m saving those for later. Mason Family in RiNo!
