Cody turns 6 months!

Some of the very first people I met in Crested Butte just over 2 years ago were Liz and Mark. Back then, they had an adorable, happy little boy named Nathan, who is just about the same age as my youngest. Since then, she and Mark have added another precious boy to their family. Cody is all smiles and big blue eyes! Although he was teething and a bit drooly, he was still a joy to photograph! I just loved seeing the wonderful interaction of the family during the more formal shots, but when they just played around in the bedroom, their joy with each other just shined!

We primarily focused on capturing Cody, but Nathan was such a cutie that I had far more photos of him than expected. Here are just a few of the favorites I found going through their photos once.

Happy 6 Months, Cody!

And a short slide show of the rest (They aren't fully edited as I just moved to a Mac and don't have Photoshop yet so please forgive the obviousness of the backdrop in some.):

Neelley and John - Engaged!

I knew this was going to be a fun shoot, I just didn't realize how much fun! Both Neelley and John were so sweet and had such easy going, fun attitudes about the whole shoot. Even when it started dumping snow, it didn't dampen their enthusiasm for each other - or for trying some new, fun shots.

These are just a few of the many photos I got of them! I think you'll agree - it's obvious how much these two truly love each other.

Congratulations, Neelley and John! I'm so happy for you and wish you the best....

Piper (6 months), Hillary and Ruben

Last summer, my sister-in-law, KT, got married to Eric and we had the reception at our house! (It was a BLAST!) Ruben (Eric's best man and best friend) made an amazing fire pit for the wedding that they decided to leave with us as a thank you for having the reception here. And while that was a wonderful gesture, we felt like Ruben and Hillary got the short end of that stick! (It is a hand made steel firepit that too many, many hours to make.)

In exchange, I offered to do some photos for them. I've done some of the firepit (although I admit I still haven't gotten the shot I wanted) and just finished a shoot with Ruben, his wife Hillary and their adorable little girl, Piper. These are a few of the photos from that shoot.

Piper was such a cutie! Her chubby little cheeks, wonderful almost brown eyes and her little smiles and chatter almost made me want another baby! Almost...

I hope you enjoy!
