Best of 2020 // Colorado Portrait Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2021/1/best-of-2020---colorado-portrait-photographer What a year! Looking through my work from the past 12 months is always one of my FAVORITE things to do after I photograph my last session of the year, but it was extra-emotional this year. 

When the world shut down in March, I didn't think that I would be working very much for the remainder of 2020. None of us knew what was coming, but I never imagined that people would be booking photo sessions during a pandemic. I am so thankful to admit that I was wrong, and I was blessed with an abundance of incredible clients this year! I truly don't have the words to describe how thankful I am for each person who allowed me into their lives this year – my heart is overflowing as I think about about each and every one of you! πŸ’•

     *To those of you who trusted me to photograph your family this year: THANK YOU!!

     *To those of you who chose me to photograph your senior photos this year: THANK YOU!!

     *To those of you who hired me to update your business headshots this year: THANK YOU!!

     *To those of you who invited me into your homes to photograph your newborn: THANK YOU!! 

     *To those of you who trusted me to photograph your engagement or milestone anniversary: THANK YOU!!

     *To those of you who followed along on my social media or blog and provided encouragement, the occasional "like," or virtual hugs: THANK YOU!!

CHEERS to the end of 2020, and I am sending you all the warmest wishes for a beautiful 2021! Happy New Year, friends! πŸ₯‚

The Free Family // Elbert County Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/12/the-free-family---elbert-county-family-photographer I have loved photographing this awesome family for the past 3 years! Bob, Jessie, and their kids are always so warm and welcoming, and their property in Kiowa, Colorado is SO perfect for photo sessions! Each year, the kids show me new areas of their forest, and we explore together while updating their family photos. 

Speaking of locations – helping my clients choose the perfect location for their photo session is one of the most important parts of my job. It's easy with this fam since we take their photos at their house, but the majority of us don't live in a magical forest, so it's a little more difficult. πŸ˜‰

I don't talk a lot about the behind-the-scenes work that I do, but I spend a lot of time searching for new locations, and then doing the research to make sure that they will work well for my clients. This includes researching any applicable photography permits that many public locations require, scouting the locations in person to see what times of day and in what seasons they will work best (some locations have better light in the morning, and some in the evening; some work best in spring/summer/fall/winter, etc) and finding out who owns specific pieces of land because trespassing isn't my jam. πŸ˜‰ I've found several hidden gems that I was sure were private property, but they are actually publicly owned and free to use. I also make sure to have a couple of easily accessible locations handy for clients who can't walk longer distances. Clients: if you ever have a question about potential locations please let me know! I'm always happy to help with your search! πŸ˜Š

Back to the lovely Free family...their love and energy gets me every year, and they are an absolute JOY to photograph! Bob, Jessie, and kids: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with your family photos each year! I appreciate you all so much and can't wait to see you again next year! πŸ’œ

The Roberson Family // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/12/the-roberson-family---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer I've had so many people ask me if Jason and I bought our house (in part, at least) because it is such a great location for photo sessions, and I feel so silly when I have to admit that it literally didn't cross my mind even once when we chose to live here. We knew that we wanted to be in Elbert County, but this particular house just kind of fell into place in a really cool way – the rustic backdrops and unobstructed views of Pike's Peak were just a fun bonus. To be fair, I wasn't photographing a lot of photo sessions back then because I was primarily a wedding photographer, but it still feels a little crazy. I did my first photo session here out of necessity – I had a colicky newborn who was exclusively nursing and I couldn't be gone for more than a couple of hours at a time, so I offered to have a couple of people come out here for their photos. The rest is history. πŸ˜‰

Fast forward 4 years and farm sessions have become a full-fledged "thing." What started out of necessity has become an integral part of my brand, and one of my very favorite places to photograph my clients – including this gorgeous family! The Robersons were one of my last families of 2020, and I loved my time with them so much! They were laid back, so kind, and a lot of fun – and the farm was the perfect backdrop for their winter photo session. 

Scroll on for some of my favorites from the Roberson family's Kiowa farm photo session...

Silhouettes // Elbert County Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/12/silhouettes---elbert-county-family-photographer Silhouettes combine two of my favorite things: incredible skies and my clients! I have been posting silhouettes as a part of many of my photo sessions for several years now, and I still get SO many questions about them so I'm here to answer some of the most common questions today. Make sure to scroll all the way to the end of this post to see some of my FAVORITE silhouette photos from over the years! 😊

1.) Question: How do you photograph a silhouette? Answer (part 1): Most of my photos are taken by exposing for the skin tones while making sure that shadows aren't too dark and highlights aren't too bright. Silhouettes are created by exposing for the sky, which will underexpose the human subject in the photos creating the shadow look. Answer (part 2): It is actually difficult in many locations to find enough open sky to use behind my subjects, so many of these were taken during photo sessions at my house in Kiowa. We are out in the open on the Colorado plains which is perfect for big sky photos. Most of the time I end up laying on the ground and shooting up with a wide angle lens to achieve the look – this gives the photo more of the human subject and sky, and less of the ground. It is necessary to find an area without trees/buildings/houses/etc because too many objects creates a big shadowy mess, for lack of a better description. πŸ˜‰

2.) Question: Can you create silhouettes at every photo session? Answer: The short answer is, no. I have tried many times, and silhouettes really don't work well outside of the golden hour. They work even better if you wait until after right after the sun dips behind the horizon because the light is even and that is usually when Colorado starts to show off with glowing orange or deep blue skies. If a silhouette photo is important to you, please let me know when you are scheduling your photo session and we will make sure to time it right! 

3.) Question: Do silhouettes require a lot of post-production (editing) work? Answer: No. I work hard to nail my exposure while taking the photo, so when I go to edit the silhouettes I usually only need to add a little contrast and sharpening and they are good to go! I also enhance the colors sometimes if they need a little bit more "wow" factor. I usually use the same, or very similar, camera settings for all of my silhouettes. It will vary a little based on the brightness of the sky, but I usually start with ISO 100, F3.2, and a shutter speed of 400+. I will bump the shutter even higher if I am capturing movement, such as the ballet jump photo included below. 

Now for the fun part – photos! πŸ€©

Sparkle // Colorado Real Estate Headshot Photos https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/12/sparkle---colorado-real-estate-headshot-photos I was thrilled when Sparkle reached out to book a headshot photo session! We have known each other for over a decade, and I couldn't be happier for her as she moves into a career in real estate with Kentwood. (Side note – do you need a great realtor in the Denver area? You can find Sparkle here: https://www.kentwood.com/bio/sparkle.) πŸ˜Š

We had an amazing time together, and she ended up deciding to book two separate photo sessions so that she have plenty of variety with two different looks. Sparkle chose an urban location so that we could incorporate some great textures and backdrops into her photos. I LOVE the photos that we created during our time together, and I can't wait to watch her thrive in the Denver real estate market!

The Hess Family // Castle Rock Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/11/the-hess-family---castle-rock-family-photographer If you've followed me for a while, you've likely seen these faces a few times. I love photographing my cousin Matt and his family each year. This year we chose one of my locations for winter photo sessions in Castle Rock and they rocked it, per usual.  

I almost never do this, but we scheduled their session in the late morning which meant that we were dealing with harsh sun. I know that some photographers won't schedule photo sessions outside of the golden hour at all, and I do try to schedule mine during that time whenever possible because the lighting is so much better, but sometimes schedules just don't allow for it for whatever reason. The good news is that with the right location, mid-day photo sessions are totally doable and can turn out great! 

I love this location in every single season for it's versatility, shade options, and lack of heavy traffic. It also has this magical ability to give off fall vibes in the middle of winter! It's a beautiful little gem. 

Matt and Jess: your family photos are always one of the highlights of my year. Thank you for trusting me to document your photos for the past decade! πŸ’›

The Meyer Family // Extended Family Photo Session in Elizabeth, Colorado https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/11/the-meyer-family---extended-family-photo-session-in-elizabeth-colorado I usually see trends when I look back over my photo sessions each year. For instance: 2019 was the year of extended family photo sessions, but it wasn't until November that I photographed my first extended family in 2020. A lot of this was due to the shutdowns and limits on gatherings in public places, but by the time fall came around I missed them dearly. Thankfully, the Meyer family came to me with a request to document their time together and I was elated to get a big family in front of my camera again! πŸ₯°

I met Evan, Alex, and Carson over the summer when I photographed their immediate family, but this time they wanted to include Evan's parents, his sister, and her husband. They also brought their dog Stella again, and I will never complain about an adorably sweet dog joining us. πŸ˜‰

We had a beautiful morning for photos at Evans Park in Elizabeth, Colorado and I loved getting to know the rest of the Meyer family. Evan, Alex, and family: thank you so much for allowing me into your world to document your family's photos! You all are fantastic and I can't wait to do it again soon!

The Day Family // Colorado Red Truck Holiday Photos https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/11/the-day-family---colorado-red-truck-holiday-photos I loved every single second of my Red Truck Holiday Photo Sessions this year! The Colorado weather was PERFECT, and our location was a gorgeous pine tree forest in Elizabeth. I met some amazing new families, and photographed some returning favorites like this one, and we had some fun with the beautifully-restored antique Model A truck. 

Sarah and boys: you know that I love you all, and I've photographed you approximately 10 bajillion times so there's really nothing new for me to share here. Thanks for always being so much fun and for trusting me with your photos each year! πŸ₯°

(Please email me if you want to be the first to know about Red Truck Holiday Mini-Sessions in 2021! I am hoping to host at least one day of photo sessions with the truck next November and would love to include your family! Email: laurasmithphotography@hotmail.com) πŸ˜Š

The Landgren Family // Colorado Red Truck Holiday Photos https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/11/the-landgren-family---colorado-red-truck-holiday-photos I loved every single second of my Red Truck Holiday Photo Sessions this year! The Colorado weather was PERFECT, and our location was a gorgeous pine tree forest in Elizabeth. I met some amazing new families (like this one!) and we had some fun with the beautifully-restored antique Model A truck. I actually owe some of the success of these mini-sessions to the lovely mama in these photos. Jennifer emailed me toward the end of the summer to ask if I would be hosting Red Truck Mini-Sessions after finding photos that I posted of my own kids in this truck last year. I hadn't put a ton of thought into it yet, but I decided to go for it, and I'm so happy that I did! 

Landgren family: you were a JOY to photograph, and I absolutely LOVE the photos that we created together! Thank you so much for trusting me with your family's photos, and I hope that you love these as much as I do. I hope to see you again next year! β€οΈ

The Farnsworth Family // Parker Colorado Fall Mini-Session Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/11/the-farnsworth-family---parker-colorado-fall-mini-session-photographer I met some INCREDIBLE families (and caught up with some returning favorites like this one!) during my fall mini-sessions this year! I spent four evenings in October photographing families at two of my favorite locations in Parker and Littleton, Colorado. On a personal level, I love having the opportunity to photograph so many families in such a short period of time. Mini-sessions give me the chance to photograph about 3 to 4x more families than I would be able to otherwise – when we are working with fall leaves time is of the essence, so minis are a perfect way to help as many clients as possible to take advantage of the gorgeous Colorado fall colors!

I loved my time with the Farnsworth Family!! Scroll on to see some of my favorites from our Parker, Colorado fall mini-session! πŸ˜

The Clark Family // Parker Colorado Fall Mini-Session Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/11/the-clark-family---parker-colorado-fall-mini-session-photographer I met some INCREDIBLE families during my fall mini-sessions this year! I spent four evenings in October photographing families at two of my favorite locations in Parker and Littleton, Colorado. On a personal level, I love having the opportunity to photograph so many families in such a short period of time. Mini-sessions give me the chance to photograph about 3-4 times more families than I would be able to otherwise – when we are working with fall leaves time is of the essence, so minis are a perfect way to help as many clients as possible to take advantage of the gorgeous Colorado fall colors!

Elizabeth and Brady // Colorado Couple's Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/10/elizabeth-and-brady---colorado-couples-photographer I photograph a LOT of people during the fall months in Colorado, but few get me as excited as this one because it's my sister-in-law! Elizabeth and Brady eloped and I couldn't wait to get them in front of my camera to celebrate their new marriage! 

We chose one of my favorite locations for fall colors in Parker, and literally couldn't have timed things better. We had a gorgeous, warm evening and the leaves were PERFECTION! (Side note: does anyone else hear Chandler's voice when they hear that word? No? Just me? πŸ˜†)

Anyway, I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves on this one. It was epic and wonderful, and I'm obsessed with every single photo that we made together. ENJOY!!

The Booghier Family // Elizabeth Colorado Headshot and Family Photography https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/10/the-booghier-family---elizabeth-colorado-headshot-and-family-photography Updated family photos? CHECK. New business headshots? Double CHECK! 

When Phil reached out to me, it was primarily to update his business headshots, but he was also hoping to get a few new family photos because they were long overdue. I usually recommend my 30 minute photo session option for headshots, but by switching to the 60 minute session option it gave us plenty of time for some family photos AND some updated headshots! We met at one of my favorite hidden gems in Elizabeth, Colorado and grabbed some family photos with Phil's wife and daughters, and then we headed to downtown Elizabeth for some headshots! I LOVE the variety that we were able to get in such a relatively small area, and downtown Elizabeth has so many great colors and textures that are perfect for headshots! 

Phil (and family) thank you for such a fun evening of photos! I loved meeting you all and hope to do it again in the future!

The Thatcher Family // Franktown Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/10/the-thatcher-family---franktown-colorado-family-photographer I adore this sweet family, and have loved to document their family photos for the past several years. However, this year was my favorite yet! This was a big year for the Thatcher family - Rich and Morgan celebrated their 20th anniversary, and they also have their first high school senior this year. Morgan decided to plan a big photo session to celebrate and document all of their milestones, and I was thrilled to be a part of it! 

If you have worked with me in the past, you may know that I love to find locations that are both beautiful and free to use, but I also love to splurge on gorgeous locations when my clients want something different. This session is an example of the latter: Castlewood Canyon State Park in Franktown is full of million dollar views, hiking trails, and so much more. They also charge photographers a permit fee plus the normal entrance fee to use the location, but oh my word is it beautiful place for photos! (As a side note: I fully support locations charging a permit fee to ensure that the gorgeous Colorado locations that we all know and love are protected for future generations - I have seen too many amazing places overrun and damaged in the past few years by photographers and others being careless.) 

Back to the Thatcher family. We started their session with photos of Rorey to celebrate her senior year - she was so relaxed, sweet, and fun to hang out with and I love the photos that we created together. πŸ’œ Next up was some couple's photo time with Rich and Morgan to commemorate their 20th anniversary. I LOVE photographing these two together each year because they are so clearly in love. With their 5 kids in the background, they hugged, laughed, embraced, and nailed their couple's photos as they do every year! Then we moved on to photos of the whole family, and we ended with a stunning golden hour at the iconic Castlewood Canyon bridge. 

Thatcher family: THANK YOU so much for your support and for trusting me to photograph you each year! I am so grateful for you and I can't wait to see you next year!

Lindsay & Michael // Parker Colorado Couple's Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/9/lindsay-michael---parker-colorado-couples-photographer Lindsay is one of my oldest friends (we have a 20+ year history together) so I jumped at the chance to update her couple's photos with her husband Michael. I photographed their elopement 5 years ago and it was so much fun to work together again. 

When we first started planning, Lindsay told me that she and Michael wanted something different than my normal photos – essentially, they are not the type of humans who want to frolic happily in nature, haha. Instead, we went for an urban backdrop and it was absolutely PERFECT! We found amazing colors and textures, and even a Little Free Library! We laughed a lot, explored, chatted, and also took some photos along the way. πŸ˜‰

Enjoy some of my favorites from Lindsay and Michael's urban couple's photo session!

Brooke // Elizabeth High School Senior Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/9/brooke---elizabeth-high-school-senior-photographer Brooke's senior photo session had it all: a gorgeous and enthusiastic girl, incredible golden hour light, and a perfect Elbert County evening. Brooke started planning for her session early, so she was ready to go with several amazing outfits and a list of ideas to run with. I LOVE it when seniors arrive to their session with some ideas to make it their own - I also love it when they want to incorporate hobbies and interests into their photo session! Brooke is a gymnast, so of course we took some photos to commemorate that as well. 

I have been using my farm in Kiowa for photos for years, but Brooke was my first senior photo session here and I absolutely loved it!! Between the open fields, the broken rustic fences, the red barn, and the incredible golden hour sun it was so perfect. Brooke: thank you so much for trusting me with your senior photo session! I loved our time together, and I think that we created some incredible photos! πŸ˜

Baby Noah // Littleton Colorado Newborn Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/9/baby-noah---littleton-colorado-newborn-photographer My last photo session in March before the Covid shutdown was an in-home newborn session, and it felt SO GOOD to finally do it again in August! 

I met the Dressler family last fall during my October mini-sessions, and I was absolutely elated to see them again in July for a maternity photo session, and again in August for newborn photos after Noah was born! These kids are hilarious and so sweet, and every time I see them I enjoy photographing them just a little bit more. πŸ’œ

During my time at the Dressler house, we had big brother antics (seriously - get a load at how CUTE Logan is!) and the sweetest big sister snuggles, and pouty baby lips, and so much more! It was such a wonderful day, and I am so thankful to Kathleen and Wyatt for trusting me with to photograph their family's milestones! Scroll on down to see my favorite moments from our time together!

The Winsinger Family // Elizabeth, Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/9/the-winsinger-family---elizabeth-colorado-family-photographer This sweet family filled my cup in so many ways during our time together! We met at one of my favorite hidden gem locations in Elizabeth, Colorado to update their family's photos, and I left with a renewed joy and thankfulness for this job that I love. (I do realize how cheesy that all sounds, but it's the honest truth.) 

I met Reba in 2012 in our MOPS group in Littleton, and I photographed her family for the first time that fall. Fast forward 8 years, and she has added a baby boy to her family and was ready to update their family photos! I LOVED catching up with these phenomenal folks, and their kids are adorable beyond words! What started as a cloudy, but pleasant, evening turned into a stunning golden hour at the end, and I am so thrilled with the photos that we created together! 

Reba and Daryl: thank you so much for an amazing evening, and for your kindness and warmth! I loved our time together so much and hope to do it again in the future! πŸ’œ

Hannah // Chatfield Senior Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/8/hannah---chatfield-senior-photographer Just wait until you see the VIEWS from this beauty's house in the foothills of Littleton, Colorado! Normally, deciding on a location is one of the more difficult choices for my senior clients, but not this time. Every single photo that you're about to see was taken at Hannah's house, and I was giddy with joy from all of our incredible backdrop choices! I love that we were able to incorporate her home into her photos to give them an added degree of sentiment. Do you have a location that's meaningful to you? If possible, let's use it for your photo session! 

Back to Hannah...this girl was such a natural in front of the camera, and I loved our time together! She was so sweet and fun to hang out with, and we included her sisters in a couple of photos (I LOVE a good sibling photo!)

It's been a tough few months for most humans, but I feel especially bad for my seniors who have had to miss out on so many milestones due to COVID. Here's hoping that things will take a turn for the better in 2021 and they can end their senior year on a high note! πŸ€ž Either way, I am incredibly thankful for the kind, resilient teens that I've had the pleasure to know this year – you are an inspiration to us all! πŸ’œ

Maggie // D'Evelyn Senior Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/8/maggie---develyn-senior-photographer Summer is the season for senior photos! Maggie's senior photo session took place at her house in Littleton, with stunning views and red rocks in the background. We also included her beautiful horse in some photos. (Side note: if you have a horse that you want to include in your senior photos, my answer will always be a resounding YES!) 

Honestly, if you ask me to include just about anything personal in your senior photo session my answer will be yes! Do you play an instrument? Bring it! Do you play a sport? Let's incorporate it! Do you participate in choir/drama/debate/etc? Let's chat and figure out how to include it in your senior photo session! 

I photographed Maggie's older brother in the same location 3 years ago, so it was wonderful to be back and have a chance to catch up with their family. Kind and interesting people are my jam, and these folks are the best of both! And Maggie is one of those girls who is bound for greatness–I can't wait to watch and see what she does! πŸ’œ

The Dressler Family // Littleton Colorado Maternity Photo Session https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/8/the-dressler-family---littleton-colorado-maternity-photo-session I met Kathleen, Wyatt, and their kids at my fall mini-sessions in Parker last year, and when they reached out to have me photograph their maternity and newborn sessions this year I was thrilled to be able to see them again! This family radiates love and warmth, and they are so laid back and fun to be around! Logan (little bro) wasn't thrilled about having his photo taken - in fact he was dead set against it - but watching Kathleen and Wyatt give him space and not forcing him to "sit and smile" was such a beautiful thing for me to be able to see. As a parent, I 100% understand the frustration when kids don't cooperate for photos, but photo sessions are so much more meaningful and real when we give kids the space that they need to be comfortable. Kathleen is a photographer also, so I'm guessing that is why she and I were on the same page with this idea. If you scroll to the very end, you will see that Logan smiled for ONE photo as we were walking back to our cars, haha. πŸ˜‰

For this session, we met in one of my favorite hidden gems in Littleton. Parks aren't immune to the fallout from Covid, and this spot hasn't been well maintained over the past few months. The pond and waterfall were empty, the annual flowers weren't planted, and there was more trash than usual. However, you would never know these things when you see the photos, because 1.) they are so beautiful and full of love that you only notice that, and 2.) I was creative with framing and the areas that we chose to use. πŸ˜‰ All of this is to say: so many people get caught up in finding a "perfect" photo location, but honestly we can make almost anywhere look amazing if you trust the process. That is all. πŸ’œ

Now for the fun part - photos! Enjoy some of my favorites from the Dressler family's maternity session, and stay tuned for more when little Noah arrives!

The Meyer Family // Parker, Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/7/the-meyer-family---parker-colorado-family-photographer This sweet family session was such a breath of fresh air after several months at home during the COVID shutdown. I met the Meyer family in Parker on a warm, summer morning and we had a great time updating their family photos! As you will soon see, their son Carson was WAY TOO CUTE, and their dog, Stella, was beyond adorable and fluffy! Speaking of Stella, she was possibly the best behaved dog that I have EVER seen at a photo session! She seriously just sat there and watched us when she wasn't in front of the camera, and when she was being photographed she was either smiling or snuggling. 

Evan and Alex: thank you so much for trusting me with your family photos! It was such a pleasure to meet you all! πŸ’œ

Our Piece of Westcliffe // Personal Post https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/7/our-piece-of-westcliffe I rarely share personal posts anymore, but I'm making an exception because 1.) I'm excited, and 2.) there are photos to share! πŸ˜‰

The past few months have caused so many people to make some big decisions and life changes, and I guess that we have now joined that club (on a smaller scale, at least.) Jason and I have been thinking about buying another piece of land for years - I kid you not, we have probably talked about it weekly for the past 5 years - and last week we closed on a property in Westcliffe! We are now the proud owners of 35 acres in the Wet Mountain Valley. The majority of the property is rolling hills with a few small pine trees, but there are also some rock outcroppings, a seasonal creek, and a grove of aspen trees. However, the main selling point was the views - photos honestly don't do this place justice. There are panoramic views of the Sangre De Cristos and Wet Mountains from almost every inch of the property and that is what sold us on this place.

We don't have any immediate plans for the land other than using it to camp, but I'm hoping to use it for photos in some capacity, and I'm pretty sure that Jason will eventually build an off-grid tiny house on it, haha! πŸ€ž (And no, we're not leaving Kiowa!)

Now for the fun part...photos! All of these photos were taken during a family hike on the property - enjoy!

The Vegh Family // Littleton Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/7/the-vegh-family---littleton-family-photographer This adorable baby girl just turned one, so her family wanted to document her first birthday with some updated family photos! We met at one of my favorite hidden gem locations in Littleton and had a beautiful afternoon for photos. Riley was such a doll, and despite being super shy (which is SO normal for toddlers!) we got some adorable smiles out of her and I'm thrilled with the resulting photos! 

Vegh Family - thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your family! I loved getting to know you all and hope to do it again in the future! πŸ˜Š

The Pruitt Family // Elizabeth Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/7/the-pruitt-family---elizabeth-colorado-family-photographer This gorgeous Elbert County family photo session was the perfect way to jump back into business after the Covid-19 shutdowns! Chelsea, Andrew, and little Coy made my first session back so much fun! They were full of energy, and chasing Coy around the forest was exactly what I needed after months at home. 

Maybe it was the fact that I barely touched my camera for months, or maybe I was just inspired by the beautiful morning light, but I *almost* love the black and white photos from this session even more than the color photos. That's saying a lot considering how much I LOVE color! I included some copies of each below and you can decide for yourself. πŸ˜‰

Pruitt family - thank you so much for trusting me to photograph you!! I loved every second of our time together and I can't wait to do it again! πŸ˜Š

Baby Oren // Colorado Springs Newborn Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/6/baby-oren---colorado-springs-newborn-photographer Baby Oren's Colorado Springs newborn photo session was memorable for so many reasons. As you will see below, he is an ADORABLE baby! His parents are incredible people - I first met them during their beautiful winter maternity session in January. Oren's nursery is one of my all-time favorites! Full of amazing decor and style, but also so many meaningful items. I loved my time with this amazing family so much, and this was one of those sessions that just completely filled my cup creatively. (Fellow photographers - you know what I'm talking about!) 

These photos were taken on the afternoon of March 15th, and later that evening we got word that my husband's office and our school were closing due to COVID-19, and thus began our time in quarantine. This session was my last under normal circumstances, and honestly I miss it. We have actually enjoyed the forced time at home together, but I do miss the ease of life and business before COVID uprooted everything. 

That being said, even though it took me almost 4 months to get them on the blog, these truly are some of my favorite lifestyle newborn photos ever, and I'm so happy to be sharing some of my favorites here today! Shannon and Jon: I am so thankful to have met you both, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness with your baby boy! Thank you so much for allowing me to document your journey to parenthood! β˜ΊοΈ

Bella // Parker, Colorado Senior Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/6/bella---parker-colorado-senior-photographer Bella's senior photo session was one for the books. It was a miserably windy evening, but you will never know it when you see the smile on this beauty's face! Bella was absolutely radiant and such a joy to photograph! 

We met at McCabe Meadows in Parker, and other than the wind it was a gorgeous evening! We had a perfect golden hour and sunset and took advantage of every second of light. Bella was up for anything, and we put her dancing skills to use with some incredible silhouettes at the end! I love having the chance to incorporate something personal into every senior photo session - whether it is a sport, instrument, dance, debate, or something else, including these things adds so much to an already incredible milestone photo session! 

Bella - I wish you all the best, and I'm so happy to have had the chance to get to know you during your senior photo session! Thank you again for such a great time! πŸ’œ

COVID-19 + Summer Photo Sessions https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/6/Covid-19 Hello, all! It's been a while since I posted here or on social media, so I'm here today to do just that. It's been a crazy few weeks (months?) and my instinct has been to become even more introverted than normal, but it is way past time for me to pop on here for some updates. πŸ’œ

I let my business take a back seat to real life for the past couple of months, and honestly it has been great for my family. We have spent more time together, rested more, played more, and my cooking has never been better, haha. However, I am SO ready to get back behind the camera, catch up with my amazing clients, and create some art again!  

I am officially back photographing clients as of June 1st! 

Outdoor photography has always been a relatively safe activity, so my procedures won't have to change too much. Even so, I have been working behind the scenes to create some plans to keep my clients and myself safe.

I will continue to adapt based on the ever-changing rules in Colorado surrounding COVID-19, but these are my current plans for summer photo sessions (Updated 6/24/2020): 

  • I am booking outdoor photo sessions only, including outdoor newborn sessions! As long as the weather holds out, I will be taking advantage of the warm weather and the gorgeous Colorado landscapes. I will update with my plans for fall and winter when we get closer to that time. 
  • I will be photographing clients from a distance, primarily using long lenses. Long lenses force me to stay farther back from my subject which allows for plenty of social distancing. They also create that tack sharp subject + dreamy blurred background that I love so much! (This actually won't change my photographic style at all because I already photograph this way, but it is relevant so I wanted to mention it here.)  
  • Because all of my summer photo sessions will take place outside and with social distancing, I will let each client decide if they would prefer for me to wear a mask or not. I am happy to do so if requested! 
  • For the time being, I will not be touching clients (shaking hands, hugging, fixing hair, etc.) 
  • I will postpone with as much notice as possible if there is any concern of illness with myself or my family. (I have also given my clients the ability to postpone their sessions without penalty due to COVID-19 concerns.)  
  • I have added new COVID-19 waiver to my normal photo session agreement. 

I want to thank all of my clients for being so patient and understanding as we navigate this new "normal" together! You all have been so amazing and I couldn't be more thankful for you! If you have any questions about the safety of photography sessions please don't hesitate to reach out and I will be happy to help. I will be keeping you all updated as I make some decisions about photo session scheduling moving forward, but please reach out if you want to start planning for summer or fall photos! (email: laurasmithphotography@hotmail.com)

And because no blog post is complete without at least a couple of photos - I bring you my own kiddos. We took these last summer when our field was lush, green, and full of blue bells. πŸ’œ

The McCoy Family // Franktown, Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/3/the-mccoy-family---franktown-colorado-family-photographer I love this family to pieces, so I was thrilled update their family photos on a chilly February afternoon! We met in beautiful Franktown, Colorado, and this family photo session had so much going for it: we had gorgeous light, beautiful clean snow, and a plethora of leftover fall leaves to add some amazing color to the photos! And Brittanie always does an incredible job of styling her family, so of course they arrived looking INCREDIBLE! Their blending of neutrals and pops of color were so perfect for this time of year. 

These two adorable boys were such troopers during our time together! It was a cold afternoon and the snow was deep, so we were all freezing cold and wet by the time we finished. We had snowball fights, hugs, running, laughing, and so much fun and I'm so happy to share some of my favorite photos today! 

Brittanie and Marcus - you guys are the best, and I'm so happy to have had the chance to photograph you again! I can't wait for the next time! β˜ΊοΈ

Baby Elijah // Parker Colorado Lifestyle Newborn Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/2/baby-elijah---parker-colorado-lifestyle-newborn-photographer World: meet baby Elijah. I am so in love with this little guy already, and I can't wait to over-photograph him every chance I get! You can see photos from his birth here. 

Lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my favorite sessions to photograph! It is no small honor to be invited into a family's home to document their first days home with a new baby, and I love every second of it. Watching Sarah and her two older boys doting on baby Elijah was such a joy, and I'm thrilled to share a few-too-many of my favorites from our time together. πŸ’™

Baby Elijah's Birth // Castle Rock, Colorado Newborn Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/2/baby-elijahs-birth---castle-rock-colorado-newborn-photographer My best friend-cousin had a baby, so prepare yourself for the photo over-share that's about to happen! πŸ™ƒ

I was so honored to be able to document baby Elijah's first few hours of life! Castle Rock Adventist's rules kept me from being in the operating room during his birth, but I was able to go back soon after so that I could photograph his brothers and aunts meeting him for the first time. Cue all of the tears. πŸ˜­

I usually get way too wordy when I share photos of Sarah and her boys, but today I will just say, "Welcome to the family, Elijah!!" He is SO loved and we are all completely obsessed with him already!

Enjoy the baby sweetness to come! πŸ’™

Shannon and Jon // Castle Rock, Colorado Maternity Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/1/shannon-and-jon---castle-rock-colorado-maternity-photographer Winter is such an unpredictable and exciting time to schedule photo sessions in Colorado! Will there be a foot of snow or will it be 70 degrees? Sun or clouds? It could literally be anything, which adds to the fun. πŸ˜‰

Shannon and Jon scheduled their maternity photo session for mid-January, and to be honest, I was expecting at least a little bit of snow - even if it was just old dirty snow, haha. What we experienced was the exact opposite: we had a gorgeous winter evening with blue skies and dry fields and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The downside to winter in Colorado is that unless the ground is covered in snow, there is a lot of yellow and brown. However, Shannon's stunning red dress was the perfect pop of color, and their gallery was a stunning mix of primary colors (red dress, blue sky, yellows/browns from the location) which I absolutely loved! 

These two were clearly so in love and sweet with each other, and they are elated to become parents soon! Shannon and Jon booked my maternity + newborn session bundle, so I get to see them again in a few weeks when I photograph them as a family of three! πŸ’™

Shannon and Jon: thank you so much for trusting me with your maternity photos! I LOVED meeting you both and I can't wait to photograph you again soon when baby Oren arrives!

The Free Family // Kiowa Colorado Extended Family Holiday Photos https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/1/the-free-family---kiowa-colorado-extended-family-holiday-photos I always love my time photographing the Free family! I met them last year when they first moved to Kiowa, and I have been honored to photograph them on their gorgeous property two more times since then. This year was extra-great for a couple of reasons: 1.) Jessie's mom and grandma were in town for Christmas, so we got to include them in some photos, and you all know how much I LOVE extended family photos! 2.) Bob had his antique truck set up for us to use as a backdrop for some photos! The truck has sentimental value to his family, so in addition to being a fantastic backdrop it was also meaningful. β€οΈ

I am thrilled with these photos, especially considering that it was the week of Christmas and it was freezing cold!! We also had some epic golden light sneak in for a few minutes! I'm not sure why, but I also loved the black and white conversions on many of these photos better than the color versions! That almost NEVER happens for me (I honestly can't remember the last time I even blogged a black and white photo here? This may be the first time.) I'm including both versions for some of these photos and you can decide for yourselves! 

Bob, Jessie, and family: thank you so much for your continued support! I have loved getting to know you all over the past year, and I can't wait to do it again in 2020! β˜ΊοΈ

The Singharaj Family // Elizabeth Colorado Extended Family Holiday Photos https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/1/the-singharaj-family---elizabeth-colorado-extended-family-holiday-photos I absolutely love snowy winter photo sessions! I met the Singharaj family at Evans Park in Elizabeth, Colorado on a chilly, winter afternoon in December. It wasn't actually chilly - it was downright freezing, but despite the cold we had a great time together!

I have photographed Chris, Diana, and their girls twice before, but this time we included Diana's sister Gloria and her family, as well as their parents. Diana and Gloria wanted to get their whole family together for a session to gift to their parents. I realize that my opinion regarding photography is almost always biased, but I think that family photos are one of the BEST gifts EVER! 

Diana told me that their hope was that we would be able to achieve cozy, snowy, photos together, and I absolutely loved the idea! The problem? We hadn't had a decent snow in Colorado in WEEKS and snow was hard to come by. I finally found this large area of untouched snow in a shaded area at Evans park and knew that it would do the trick! After our photo session I added in a little bit of photoshop magic (falling snow) and we had that cozy, snowy look that we had set out to achieve. 

Singharaj family: I can't thank you enough for trusting me to photograph your extended family session! I loved our time together and I hope to do it again in the future!! β€οΈ

2019 In Review // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2020/1/2019-in-review---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer This post is my favorite each year because it gives me a chance to reflect on all of my work over the past 12 months. This little business of mine allowed me to meet and re-connect with a bunch of incredible people in 2019, and I am so so thankful for each and every one of you! Before I move on to the photos, I want to share something with you...

I worked with several people this year who were going through some huge personal struggles behind the scenes, and I want you to know that even if we aren't actively in touch I am here rooting for you and praying for you. No matter what you hire me for: family photos, newborn photos, senior photos, a mini-session, or anything else - I want the best for you! 

One of my favorite parts of social media is being able to watch as my LSP clients grow and thrive, and to also be able to pray behind the scenes when things are not going as well. This business has given me a unique opportunity to meet and connect with a huge array of people who I probably wouldn't meet otherwise, and I am so incredibly thankful for that gift. I also don't take it for granted when people confide in me during our time together and I don't take the responsibility lightly. 

When I get emails from past clients who haven't seen me for a while, they almost always start by re-introducing themselves. I just want to say that you never need to do that with me, because if I have photographed you ever, I remember you. It doesn't matter if it was in 2011, last month, or each and every year, I remember you. 

I will close by saying a resounding THANK YOU to you all - my clients, friends, family, followers, and anyone else that I have forgotten to mention here. Thank you for another incredible year of memory making, and I hope to see you all in 2020! 

xoxo, 

~Laura

Now on to the photos! I have chosen a few of my favorite photos from each of my 2019 photo sessions (minus a handful that cannot be shared online.)

The Hess Family // Kiowa Colorado Winter Family Photos https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/12/the-hess-family---kiowa-colorado-winter-family-photos There's just something about winter family photos in Colorado! The psychotic weather here makes it nearly impossible to plan too far ahead, and to be honest, that is part of the fun. Technically, this wasn't even a winter photo session (it was mid-November) but in my mind everything in the time period after the leaves are gone and before spring arrives counts as winter. πŸ˜‰

One of the toughest times for photos is when it is dry in the winter. Without some planning, you run the risk creating photos that lack color and interest. Snow makes things look bright, clean, and beautiful, but the endless, brown, deadness of winter can be hard to overcome. Some of that can be remedied by adding color back with outfit choices, but the location plays a huge part as well. When I am planning winter sessions with my clients, I offer locations that look great with or without snow, so that we will be prepared either way. Something as simple as choosing a location with pine trees instead of an area with only skeleton trees makes a big difference! Pine trees look amazing year-round, and can give winter photos some much-needed interest. Using areas with buildings or architecture are also a great choice because they tend to look great all the time. 

Matt, Jess, and their kiddos ventured out to my farm in Kiowa for their family photos this year, and we had a warm and dry evening that ended with a BEAUTIFUL sunset (no joke, keep scrolling to see it!) The farm works well year-round because the red barn gives us a much-needed pop of color, and the golden hour sun turns the open fields of brown grass into something beautiful. 

I always love my sessions with this family, and I am so proud of the photos that we created this year! Hess fam: thank you so much for trusting me with your family photos every year - love you guys! β˜ΊοΈ

Christmas Truck Photos // Elizabeth Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/12/christmas-truck-photos---elizabeth-colorado-family-photographer I had a vision in mind for some Christmas photos for my own kiddos this year, and Thanksgiving gave me a perfect opportunity to make it happen! A couple of years ago, my parents brought my grandpa's old Model A truck back from the family farm in Kansas, and my dad has worked super hard to restore it to it's former glory. I wanted pajama photos of my kids in the back of the truck, but the best part was that I was able to include my cousin's kids too! It was so special to get photos of all 6 kids together in their great-grandpa's truck.

We were originally going to drive to a local park that is full of pine trees, but we got a big snow before Thanksgiving, so we ended up parking down the street from my parents' house and it was perfect! I have been considering adding truck photos like these as a mini-session option next year also, so if that's something you'd be interested in let me know! If I get enough interest I may just do it. :-) 

I hope that you enjoy the photos!

The Somers Family // Elizabeth Colorado Extended Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-somers-family---elizabeth-colorado-extended-family-photographer 2019 has definitely been the year of extended family sessions! I love multi-generational photo sessions so much, and this one was no different - in fact, I'm actually related to these folks. This extended family includes my husband's aunt and uncle, and his cousins and their families. :-) 

I have had so many people ask me who photographs my family, and since 2018 the answer has been Jenny (the pretty mama in the red sweater with glasses.) She is also a photographer, and we have traded taking each other's photos for the past couple of years. This year we decided to trade extended family photos which was even more fun!

We had a GORGEOUS warm fall evening at Evans Park in Elizabeth, and the kiddos did great! Elbert County had the perfect golden hour sun, and after a successful evening of photos we met back up at our house in Kiowa for Bino's Pizza! 

Somers fam: I love you all, and I'm so glad that we made this session happen! I hope that you all love these photos a much as I do!

The Benson Family // Elizabeth Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-benson-family---elizabeth-colorado-family-photographer I met Veronica through a mutual friend, and I was thrilled to help her update her family photos here in Elbert County! We started our photo session during what should have been the golden hour, but the sun quickly disappeared and a snow storm moved in. We met at Evans Park, which is one of my favorite spots here in Elizabeth! It is so versatile, and looks completely different every season - plus kids always love the pond! :-) 

We may have lost the sun, but thankfully we had no shortage of deer! We spent our evening chasing deer and it was so much fun!! 

Mike and Veronica: thank you so much for trusting me as your family photographer! I hope to see you again in 2020! :-)

The Clark Family // Littleton Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-clark-family---littleton-family-photographer I met Kevin, Megan, and baby Ryden during my Littleton fall mini-sessions and they blew me away! I'll be honest, I was a little nervous when I first started chatting with Megan about their session and she mentioned that Ryden was only going to be 11 weeks old. Fall photos can be super unpredictable, because one day it's 70 degrees and sunny, and the next it is zero degrees and blizzarding. Baby photos can be unpredictable because, well, babies. ;-) I mentioned that we would probably focus on taking candid and snuggly photos, but never in a million years did I expect this baby boy to show up ready to SMILE! He was all smiles for the first 20 minutes of our time together, and only in the last 5 minutes or so did he start to get a little fussy. I felt like the luckiest photographer in the world, haha! 

Between Ryden's smiles, the sweet, loving nature of Kevin and Megan, and the gorgeous golden fall light this was such an amazing family session! I am obsessed with the photos that we created, and I am so excited to share a few of my favorites here today!

The Norris Family // Littleton Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-norris-family---littleton-family-photographer Old Littleton is one of my FAVORITE locations for mini-sessions! With the mature trees, interesting architecture, and small town feel, it really is a perfect Colorado photo location. For the past couple of years, I have hosted my spring mini-sessions here because the crabapple trail is one of the best places for spring colors! This year, I decided to add in an evening of fall mini-sessions also, and Littleton's charm didn't disappoint!

This year was so weird when it came to fall colors. Colorado was several weeks later than usual when it came to the leaves changing, and then as soon as we got close to peak colors in town, we had the massive freeze that turned everything from yellows and golds to dead brown. This was especially concerning to me because I chose a rose garden for my mini-session location, but thankfully we had incredible weather, a beautiful golden hour, and AMAZING families like this one, and those three things can make up for just about any location short comings. (And for the record, even with dead roses and brown leaves, this was a STUNNING location for fall photos!) 

My first family of the evening was David, Taylor, and their ADORABLE kiddos! I first met them last fall during my Parker mini-sessions, and I immediately loved them. They are some of the kindest, most incredible humans that you'll ever meet, and I was so thankful to work with them again this year! I was also thrilled to find out that they are expecting baby number 3 in 2020 and I CANNOT wait to meet her! Based on Cohen and Nora, I'm guessing that she will be BEYOND CUTE!! 

Norris family: thank you for trusting me to photograph your family again this year! I adore you all, and I can't wait to meet your newest addition next year!! :-)

The Rodriguez Family // Castle Rock Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-rodriguez-family---castle-rock-family-photographer The Rodriguez family met me on a super chilly fall morning in Castle Rock, Colorado. I kid you not - it was about 20 degrees outside, but they were such troopers and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful morning for some updated family photos! The canyon was full of warm morning sunlight, and the cliffs were glowing! It was so cold that the prairie grass was still covered in frost, which actually led to some of my favorite photos of the whole session. The juxtaposition between the fall colors and the wintery grass was beyond gorgeous. 

I photographed Mary's extended family years ago (2012, I believe, but definitely before this blog existed, haha) and it was such a joy to photograph her again with the incredible family that she has now built. Luis and Mary have two of the most adorable kiddos, and Mary's mom was able to join us as well, so we got some sweet photos with her also! 2019 has definitely been the year of extended family photos for me, and I wouldn't have it any other way! In fact, it actually motivated me to schedule extended family photos for myself and they are some of my most treasured photos to date. 

Luis, Mary, and family: thank you so much for trusting me to update your photos! I loved every second of our time together, and I hope to do it again soon! :-)

Slade, May, and Seth // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/slade-may-and-seth---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer I was so thrilled when this sweet family wanted to come out to my farm in Kiowa this year for their family photos! Colorado in the fall can be one of the most BEAUTIFUL places on Earth, but this year we had that freak freeze in early October that annihilated the fall colors. Nothing like a few days of sub-zero temps to turn everything from greens and yellows to brown. :-( 

The *good* news is that I don't rely on the leaves for interest or color out here on the farm, so my Kiowa sessions were aaaaahhhhh-mazing! When I photograph sessions on the Colorado plains I use the rolling grassy fields, Pikes Peak views, old wood fences, and barns as my backdrops, so this place is a great all year long. 

Anyway, I first met Slade, May, and their little guy Seth last fall during my Parker mini-sessions, and I was so happy that they wanted to come out to Kiowa this year! We had a PERFECT evening for photos - the weather was warm, the sun was full of golden light, and I had an amazing, loving family to work with! I am so incredibly thankful for clients like these who trust me to photograph them year after year! Slade and May: I loved my time with you so much this year - let's do it again in 2020! :-)

The Votava Family // Parker Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-votava-family---parker-colorado-family-photographer The Votava family closed out my 2019 Parker, Colorado fall mini-sessions with some big-family fun! I used up every minute of the golden hour light photographing this awesome family of 7. Our time together was full of laughter and love, and it was the perfect way to end my Parker mini-sessions! 

Jeff, Dawn, and family: thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your family this year! You were so gracious and it was an absolute pleasure to meet you all! I hope to do it again next year!

The Fikse Family // Parker Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-fikse-family---parker-colorado-family-photographer My second evening of Parker, Colorado fall mini-sessions was one of my all-time favorites! I had several amazingly sweet families (like this one!) and we had such a fun time chasing light and making memories at McCabe Meadows! The golden hour sun and fall colors were on full display, and we had a gorgeous October evening for photos. 

Nate, Pam, and little Cora were SO much fun to work with, and I am absolutely in love with the photos that we created together! This adorable family is new to Colorado, and I was so honored that they chose me to document their family in their new home. I LOVED our time together, Fikse family! I hope to do it again next year!!

The Dressler Family // Parker, Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-dressler-family---parker-colorado-family-photographer I met the Dressler family during my second weekend of Parker, Colorado fall mini-sessions. Kathleen is a photographer herself, so I was super a liiiiiiittle nervous, but this awesome family immediately put me at ease with their kindness and sweet demeanor!

We met at McCabe Meadows, and had such a gorgeous evening for photos! I wasn't sure what would be left of the leaves after the giant freeze a few days prior, but we had some beautiful oranges and sun so I couldn't have been happier! 

Kathleen and Wyatt: thank you so much for trusting me with your family photos this year! I LOVED meeting you guys, and I hope to see you again next year! :-)

Sarah, Matthew, and Liam // Parker Mini Session Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/sarah-matthew-and-liam---parker-mini-session-photographer I am continuing on with my Parker, Colorado fall mini-session families today with some of my very favorite people! If you want to read up on my history with these three and see some photos from years past, you can do so here, here, and here

This session, however, was extra special because we were able to document baby boy #3's impending arrival! I can. not. wait. to snuggle and spoil this little dude in January, and it was so fun to celebrate Sarah's pregnancy with some maternity photos. Sarah, Matthew, and Liam: I love the crap out of you three, and I can't wait to meet baby E in a couple of months! :-) 

Please enjoy a few of my favorite photos from their fall mini-session at McCabe Meadows in Parker!

The Lay Family // Parker Colorado Mini Session Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-lay-family---parker-colorado-mini-session-photographer I met the Lay family at McCabe Meadows in Parker on my very first night of fall mini-sessions this year, and we had a beautiful evening for photos! I always offer several days of mini-sessions each October, and they are one of my favorite parts of the season. Fall in Colorado can be so unpredictable, and the gorgeous colors are always one big freeze away from disappearing, so mini-sessions are a perfect way to accommodate multiple families in one day! Mini-sessions allow me to photograph several families in one evening, as well as a family or two in the morning, which makes all the difference with a limited number of weekend dates available! 

Mini-sessions are perfect for families who: want a quick session to update their family's photos, love the gorgeous fall colors, and who want to take advantage of a less expensive photo session option. I usually start booking fall mini-sessions in early August, so if you want to take advantage of one for your family keep an eye out for information in late summer. :-) 

The Lay family's photo session was so much fun, and I instantly fell in love with their sweet doggy (I mean LOOK AT THAT FACE!) I am so excited to share a few of my favorites from their Parker mini-session today...enjoy! :-)

The Allen Family // Littleton Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/11/the-allen-family-littleton-colorado-family-photographer I met Bob, Katie, and their two kiddos last summer when I photographed their extended family here on my farm in Kiowa. I loved my time with this family so much last year, so I was thrilled when Katie reached out to set up a fall photo session this year! 

We met at Gallup Gardens, which is one of my favorite places in Littleton! This is where I host my annual spring mini-sessions because the pink and white crabapples are GORGEOUS, but it is also beautiful through summer and fall! (And to my fellow photogs - the permits for South Suburban Parks are super easy and affordable which is such a bonus as we all know!) 

As always, the gardens were the perfect place for family photos and I had a great time catching up with this amazing family! We had a beautiful fall evening full of laughter and light-chasing. When Katie first contacted me last year she told me how important light is to her for personal reasons, and I was so relieved when Colorado gave us a perfect golden hour sun again this year! Just before the sun dipped under the horizon, we moved to the giant willow tree at the garden and the natural light flares that resulted from the sun coming through the leaves are some of my all-time favorites! I am so thrilled with all of the photos that we created together again this year. :-)

Allen family - I have loved my time with you for the past two years! Thank you so so much for trusting me with your family's photos, and I hope to see you again next year!

The Hernandez-Moyano Family // Castle Rock Extended Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/10/the-hernandez-moyano-family---castle-rock-extended-family-photographer Luisa reached out to me after finding me on Pinterest (cue my happy dance because my endless hours on Pinterest are finally paying off, haha!) to ask if I would be interested in photographing her extended family while they were in town from Florida. You all probably know by now that I LOVE multi-generational photo sessions, so I was thrilled to be able to help! Not only that, but this was their family's first professional photo session together, so it was a big deal. 

As soon as I stepped out of my car to meet them, I felt at ease and knew that they were going to be a great family! It was a chilly fall morning in Castle Rock (especially for a crowd who is used to Florida warm temperatures!) but we were blessed with some gorgeous light and they were up for anything. We took a mix of big group photos, plus lots of breakouts with each individual family and couple. I also found out during our time together that Luisa and her fiancé Scott haven't had photos taken together since getting engaged 3 years ago, so we took a few extra minutes for those and I LOVE the way that they turned out! 

Luisa, Scott, and family: thank you SO much for trusting me to photograph your extended family together! I absolutely loved meeting you all and I hope to see you again soon! :-)

The Thatcher Family // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/10/the-thatcher-family---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer My first Kiowa farm session of the fall 2019 season was a good one! I first met the Thatcher family at my first day of Parker fall mini-sessions last year, and I was immediately struck by how warm and friendly they are! When Morgan reached out to book a farm session this year I was thrilled to see them again and to have them out to my farm! Morgan, Rich, and their kids are all so kind and fun to be with, so we had another great photo session this year! (You can see their session from last year here.)

We had some AMAZING golden hour light during our time together, and between that and their infectious smiles and laughter, I am so thrilled with our finished photos! Oh, and I have to mention that Rich and Morgan are actual couple's goals! They have blown me away with their chemistry during both of our sessions, and I absolutely love photographing them together!! 

Thatcher family - thank you so much for trusting me with your family photos again this year! I hope that you love your photos as much as I do, and I hope to see you again next year! :-)

The Bazz Family // Mount Evans Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/10/the-bazz-family---mount-evans-family-photographer Sorry (not sorry) for the huge amount of photos that I'm about to share from this gorgeous Mount Evans family session today!  :-) 

Lindsay was a childhood friend of mine, and I am so thankful that we have kept in touch for almost 30 years! I have had the pleasure of photographing her amazing family several times over the years, from maternity photos to newborn photos to family photos - we have done it all, but this time was probably my favorite! Lindsay's husband Ryan recently started a new job as the principal at the Mount Evans Outdoor Lab School for Jeffco, and they have quickly grown to love it up there. It took me about two seconds to realize why...it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The entire property is full of million-dollar views, history, and so much variety - I was in photographer heaven! 

We spent about 2 hours together, and it flew by because we were having so much fun! Ryan drove us around the property on an ATV and it really was an adventure! As I mentioned above, the entire property is incredible! We explored ridges with sweeping mountain views,  groves of aspen trees, a pond with an incredible dock, historic barns and buildings, and so much more. I kept my camera out until I had lost every bit of light, because I was so inspired by the beauty surrounding us.  

I will be honest and say that I am a creature of habit and I tend to stick fairly close to home. I have a number of locations that I tend to use a lot, and for good reason - they are beautiful! From Kiowa to Elizabeth to Castle Rock to Parker to Littleton - I know these places like the back of my hand and I LOVE my little hidden gems in each location, but it was so much fun to step out of my comfort zone for an evening and photograph in an entirely new place! I am already itching to book more mountain sessions, so if you like what you see here hit me up! ;-) 

Lindsay, Ryan, and Blake: thank you SO much for having me up to your home away from home! I enjoyed every second of our time together and I am obsessed with the photos that we created together! :-)

The Martell Family // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/9/the-martell-family---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer It is rare that I get to photograph a family so close to home in Kiowa (other than when I do photo sessions *at* my home) so this was a treat for me! The cherry on top is that the Martell family lives on one of the original Kiowa homesteads on Comanche Creek, so their property is full of so much beauty and history! Their beautiful winding, dirt drive lead me over the creek and up to their gorgeous farmhouse. From the front porch, I could see at least a dozen gorgeous backdrops for photos, so I was thrilled to get started! 

We started off with a few extended family photos in front of one of the original cabins, and then moved on to some immediate family photos with Julie, John, and their three awesome kids down by the creek. We had a stunningly beautiful golden hour, and I am so in love with the photos that we created together! 

Martell family: thank you so much for having me out to your gorgeous property, and for trusting me to photograph your amazing family! I hope that you love these photos as much as I do!

The Farnsworth Family // Parker Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/9/the-farnsworth-family---parker-colorado-family-photographer There is just something magical about the areas along Cherry Creek in the late summer and fall. McCabe Meadows in Parker is one of my favorite spots because of its versatility, and because it is beautiful at almost any time of the day. Most of my photo sessions take place in the evening, but after talking to Jacquelyn about her twin baby girls and their nap schedules we decided to meet in the morning. This was 100% the right choice because we had happy babies, and McCabe Meadows delivered with some gorgeous scenery and light! The colors were absolutely stunning as well, and perfectly complimented their outfit colors. :-) 

Matt, Jacquelyn, and their three little girls were beyond sweet and fun to work with! I am always prepared for anything when photographing babies and toddlers, but when the very first photo that I took of them was this first photo below, I knew that we would be fine. ;-) 

These girls were full of smile, laughter, and joy for our entire time together, and I am so thrilled with our gallery of photos! Scroll on to see some of my favorites from my time with the Farnsworth family!

The Biays-Smith Family // Castle Rock Extended Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/9/the-biays-smith-family---castle-rock-extended-family-photographer Extended family photo sessions are some of my favorites! I love the different dynamics and having multiple generations together to document their relationships. Marie is the gorgeous mom to Jessica, and grammy to Jessica's two beautiful little girls, so when she contacted me to set up a session with them I was thrilled! I 100% think that grandparents should get into the photos with their kids and grandkids more often! 

We met at one of my FAVORITE hidden gem locations in Castle Rock and we basically had the whole area to ourselves for our entire hour together. We had a beautiful evening followed by one of the most stunning fire-orange sunsets I've ever seen. This, of course, meant that I was running around like a crazy person, trying to grab some silhouette photos before the light changed, and OH MY WORD was it ever worth it! I wish I had a behind the scenes photo of this silhouette set-up, because the resulting photos look NOTHING like what was actually happening, other than that glowing sky. ;-) I was on the side of a grassy hill yelling and waving my arms to direct this sweet family as they were standing in the parking lot. Needless to say, it is much less glamorous than it looks in the photos, haha. 

Marie, Jessica, and Ryan: Thank you so much for trusting me with your extended family photo session. I loved photographing you with your beautiful little girls, and I hope that you love these photos as much as I do!!

The Huhn Family // Littleton Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/9/the-huhn-family---littleton-family-photographer I was thrilled to be back at one of my favorite Littleton locations this summer! Gallup Gardens is one of the most GORGEOUS spots in Littleton (and when compared to some of the other garden locations in the area, the photography permit fee is very reasonable and South Suburban Parks makes it so easy to get - WIN!) Anyway, this was actually my first summer session here because I'm usually there in the spring when the crabapples are blooming, but now that I have seen the lush, flower-filled wonderland that is Gallup Gardens in the summer, I will definitely be back soon! 

Victoria initially reached out to me late last year to talk about doing a session this summer, so this family's photos have been a long time in the making! She wanted unobtrusive posing and lots of candid photos, and I think that we achieved that with these photos. This sweet family was full of laughter, hugs, and so many sweet, unplanned moments. I am absolutely in LOVE with the photos that we created together, and I am thrilled to share a few of my favorites today. 

Victoria and Brendan: thank you so much for trusting me with your family's photos! I loved our time together, and I hope that we get to do it again soon! :-)

Jenna, Cameron, and Kash // Kiowa Farm Engagement Session https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/8/jenna-cameron-and-kash-kiowa-farm-engagement-session You guys are in for a treat today! This is probably one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE Kiowa Colorado farm photo sessions! I know I say that a lot (and I mean it every time, I swear!) but I truly feel like Jenna, Cameron, Kash, and I captured some magic together. 

I met Jenna last year when she started teaching at our local school, and although she didn't have any of my kiddos in her class we quickly got to know each other through our mutual family connection. Jenna is the cousin of my husband Jason's cousin's wife Kaci. Sounds complicated, but it's actually fairly simple if you think about it. ;-) When Kaci told us that Jenna would be teaching at our school I *knew* I had to meet her, and my kids were immediately convinced that she was a long-lost magical unicorn of a cousin, so they were thrilled, haha. My kids were right about one thing - Jenna IS magical! She is one of the sweetest, kindest, and most wonderful humans, and we are SO LUCKY to have her teaching in Kiowa! Even better - my youngest daughter is in her first grade class this year! 

Anyway, Kaci (who is also a super talented photographer!) was supposed to take engagement photos for Jenna and Cameron, but she was about 9 months pregnant and ended up not being able to take them, so Jenna asked if I would do it - I couldn't say yes to this fast enough!! 

We decided on my farm for our location, and it was perfect! We had a gorgeous evening, and when you see these three together you will just melt! Cameron and his son Kash were so sweet with Jenna, and I adored the connection that the three of them have! I LOVE that Jenna and Cameron included Kash in their photos because it made them all the more special. I can't wait for these three to become an "official" family next year when they get married! 

Jenna and Cameron - thank you so much for trusting me with your engagement session! I loved every second of our time together and I hope that you love your photos as much as I do! Congratulations on your engagement!! :-)

The Day Family // Littleton Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/8/the-day-family---littleton-family-photographer This is an extra special post for me today. Sarah has been my friend for over 20 years - we met in geometry class during our freshman year of high school, and then re-connected right after graduation at our mutual credit union. We were inseparable for years, and when I married Jason in April 2010, she and her family (who already felt like family to me) became my family, officially.

To make a *very* long story short: she introduced me to her cousin Jason in 2001 and he and I became good friends, 8 years later we were engaged, fast forward 10 years later and we are unabashedly happy with 4 kids, 2 dogs, 15 chickens, and a life that is so much different (in the best way possible) than what I ever could have imagined. There are very few people who have had a larger impact on my life than she has, and I am eternally thankful for her friendship and the fact that we can be BCF's for life. (Best cousin-friends.) 

Don't even get me started on her boys, because I couldn't love them more! Matthew and Liam are some of my very favorite humans, but if it's possible I think that my kids love them even more than I do. Liam is two weeks older than my daughter Addie, so they have known each other since birth and now they are 9 years old and have the sweetest friendship. Matthew has recently won over my 3 year old son Benny, and they are officially best friends. I have never met a kinder, more mature, and awesome kid than Matthew. Any 13 year old who is as sweet as he is to a 3 year boy with hero worship is the real MVP in my book.

I could literally rave about these three forever, but you are probably here for the photos so I'll move on. ;-) We met in Old Littleton for some pre-sunset family photos, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful evening. The Crabapple Trail and flowers were in full-bloom, and we ended the night with a picture perfect sunset (which means a silhouette photo for anyone who knows me!) And just for fun, I will end this post with a few personal (phone) photos of the kiddos throughout the years. 

Sarah, Matthew, and Liam: I am thankful beyond words for you three. Thank you for letting me photograph you again, and I can't wait to do it again soon! :-)

Baby Gracelynn // Sedalia Colorado Newborn Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/8/baby-gracelynn---sedalia-colorado-newborn-photographer Sweet little Gracelynn completely stole my heart at her lifestyle newborn session! 

We met at her grandparents' house in Sedalia, Colorado for some lifestyle photos with her parents Doug and Kaci, and her big brother and sister. There were no shortage of baby snuggles and cuteness, and I am so obsessed with the photos that we created together!! 

This session was extra fun because I photographed Gracelynn's big brother Jase as a newborn in 2013 (see those photos here.) I didn't get to photograph big sister Laycie because she was born only 3 days before my son in 2016, but we took a few extra fun photos of her when she was helping me get set up for Gracelynn. :-) 

I love lifestyle newborn sessions for about a billion reasons (read about those here, if you'd like to!) but first and foremost, because it allows for such a comfortable and natural setting for photos. One of my greatest photography-related regrets is that I didn't hire someone to come photograph my own family after my children were born, and instead I took the photos myself. The photos are great and I love them because they are my babies, but I am not represented in any of them and looking back I wish I'd done things differently. Anyhoo, all of that is to say that these moments are so fleeting, and because of my own personal regrets I love photographing these sessions for other families even more. :-) 

Doug and Kaci: I am SO happy for you and your family - Gracelynn is gorgeous, and you have built such an incredible family! Thank you for letting me photograph your first session together as a family of 5!

Free Siblings // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/8/free-kiddos---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer I met the Free family last November when I photographed their family at their beautiful new home here in Kiowa. (See those photos here.) They were so sweet, and excited to be moving their family to a gorgeous new home in Kiowa. 

Little Elsie was only about 4 months old when we did their fall session, so when Jessie contacted me to set up a quick session to celebrate her turning one I was thrilled to be able to photograph these adorable kiddos again! They are still just as cute, and their home is surrounded by a gorgeous forest, so we had no problem finding some fantastic places to take photos, right outside of their front door. 

Bob and Jessie: Thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your amazing family again! I can't wait to see you all again soon! :-)

Miss Cindy's Family // Elizabeth Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/8/miss-cindys-family---elizabeth-colorado-family-photographer Evans Park in Elizabeth, Colorado put on a gorgeous show for this family photo session! Miss Cindy was the first person I met when I toured our school in Kiowa back in 2016. I was super pregnant and hormonal (and devastated to be leaving our beloved Waterstone Preschool) and she immediately put me at ease and made me feel like my kids would be safe and loved in Kiowa. Boy was she right! We just started our 4th year here, and I couldn't imagine sending my kids anywhere else now.

Miss Cindy is still the first smiling face that we see each morning, and she is amazing beyond words! I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her with her daughter Lindsey and her grandkids! We met at Evans Park in Elizabeth and it was SO GORGEOUS! The vibrant greens, wildflowers, and golden hour sun were all just perfect! I had a blast finding beautiful little areas with this sweet family, and I am so happy with the photos that we created together! 

Cindy, Lindsey, and family: Thank you so much for trusting me with your family photo session! I hope to do it again soon! :-)

The Martin Family // Kiowa Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/7/the-martin-family---kiowa-colorado-family-photographer I have been swearing up and down for years, that I would NEVER take photos here at the farm in Kiowa at any time other than sunrise/sunset (unless it was cloudy/foggy/etc etc etc.) Well, I'm sure you have figured out that the point of this post is to tell you that I broke my own rule, and I actually really love the photos! However, having said that I will probably never do it again if I can help it, hahahaha. 

My cousin Matthew, his wife Christy, and their three kids just stopped by for a super short visit. Since they were only here for a couple of hours, we didn't have the luxury of choosing the "ideal" time to update their family photos, but we didn't let that stop us! I dragged them out to the fields at the absolute "worst" time of day (about 2:00pm with zero shade and the harshest light EVER) and we did our thang. Are there a few more highlights than I'd like? Yep. Do I love the golden hour sun more than just about anything else? Of course. But above all, I love these people and I am so happy to have had the chance to photograph them again. (See our last session from the middle of Kansas here.) 

Matthew and Christy: thank you SO much for stopping by to see us, and for letting me photograph you again! We love you guys!!

The Lash Family // Littleton Colorado Family Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/6/the-lash-family---littleton-colorado-family-photographer I am in love with Littleton in the spring! Stepping out of my car for my photo session with the Lash family, I was immediately hit with the sights and smells of my childhood growing up nearby, and to make it even better I had this gorgeous family to photograph! 

I first met the Lash family last October when I photographed them in the gorgeous fall colors, and they were SO MUCH FUN that I was thrilled to have another opportunity to hang out with them! Diana coordinated their outfits to perfection (as always!) and the girls are so adorable and sweet!  

We were blessed with perfect weather and a gorgeous golden hour for photos among the blooming crabapple trees and lilac bushes. I LOVE this location because it is full of great little spots for photos, but it is all in a relatively small area so it is perfect for families with young children and anyone else who can't walk longer distances. It also isn't usually very busy which is perfect for a family photo session! 

I absolutely love the photos that we created together, and I am excited to share a few of my favorites here! Chris and Diana - you have such a wonderful family, and I am thankful to have had the chance to meet you all! I hope you love these photos as much as I do and I hope to see you again soon! :-)

Baby Delilah // Castle Rock Colorado Newborn Photographer https://www.laurasmithphotos.com/blog/2019/5/baby-delilah---castle-rock-colorado-newborn-photographer Baby Delilah's sweet lifestyle newborn session was the perfect way to kick off my 2019 portrait season! As soon as I entered Ryan and Jessica's home in Castle Rock, I was greeted with hugs from my adorable niece Ophelia and kisses from their sweet dog Butters - does it get any better!? 

Lifestyle newborn sessions are one of my very favorite things to photograph, but this one was a little *extra* special because it also marked the first time that I met my new baby niece! There is a small chance that I am biased, but I think that these girls are so beautiful! It was so lovely to have an opportunity to photograph them!

I always start my newborn sessions by asking the parents if there is a specific room or rooms that they want to take photos in, and then I look for the areas in their home with the best light. As soon as I walked into Ryan and Jessica's cozy living room I knew that it would be perfect! It had a huge window with gorgeous natural light, and by moving a few small items I was able to eliminate distractions so that I could put all of the focus in the photos on baby Delilah and her sweet family.

(Side note: it is so normal for me to need to move small items while I am photographing in a client's home. Eliminating items that can be distracting in photos makes a HUGE difference in the quality of your finished photos! However, I ALWAYS move everything back before I leave.) ;-) 

During our time together, we took a ton of gorgeous photos of baby Delilah snuggled up with her family (my FAVORITE kind of photos!) as well as some super sweet, minimally-posed photos of her on her own and with her sister. 

Ryan and Jessica: Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your gorgeous family!! I hope that you love these photos as much as I do! See you soon! xoxo
