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!
