Thanks to being one of my clients from a lifetime ago, this awesome Cheyenne family is alllll over my website! I’ve photographed all three of their girls as newborns, and it makes me so darn happy every single time I see them. We tried something a bit new for this session, and managed to hit the one?? Saturday in April that it was warm, not windy, and sunny! That’s an accomplishment, even in summer. They requested a mural theme session since the trees were still bare, with blossoms weeks away from blooming. And we succeeded! This family session consisted of a couple different locations in Chey ..read more

How To Start A Photography Business in 2024

by lizputnam11
3w ago
After almost a decade in business and meeting other photographers, I frequently get the question: “How do I start a photography business?” I hate having to break it to them that about 20% of the job is the Fun Stuff, but the other 80% (the Business Stuff) takes up most of your time! This post assumes that you already have the Fun Stuff handled – camera, lens, social media profiles. I’m going to focus on the things no one tells you about when you first start your business: insurance, taxes, and websites. Disclaimer: while I did take a couple classes on finances in college thanks to an engineeri ..read more

Curt Gowdy State Park is one of my favorite places in southeast Wyoming. Trail running, mountain biking, wildflowers, paddleboarding…I live in Wyoming for the outdoor opportunities, and Curt Gowdy doesn’t disappoint!

N + D | Longmont Newborn Photographer

I met N + D at their awesome mid-century home in Longmont, CO, for an at home newborn photo session on a gorgeous late fall day. I was in love with their house as soon as I pulled up – just the perfect amount of sunshine, warmth and coziness for newborn photos with their sweet babe (and two pups!). Longmont has a special place in my heart – my husband grew up in a home on the west side of Longmont, and my in-laws still live there, so I spend most holidays and birthdays at their home. I’ve photographed weddings at Roosevelt Park and Oskar Blues Oak Room, painted pottery at Crackpot ..read more

Teagan | Lory State Park Senior Photos

This senior session at Lory State Park in Fort Collins is summer in photo form. Sunflowers, SO much sunshine, tall grass, warm enough to wade in the water…I’m writing this while watching the snow fall outside my window, and very much wishing for those warm August evenings in the foothills! Teagan wanted a location with water, so I knew Lory State Park is where we had to go. Located on the western edge of Horsetooth Reservoir, it’s has a bit more variety than the steep cliffs on the eastern side of the water. That said, there isn’t much shade until the sun dips behind the mountains, so you have ..read more

This session stole my heart for SO many reasons! I met K+L in the summer of 2021, when I helped with their engagement session in the RiNo district. While they had a Wyoming wedding (hello, Jackson Hole), I headed back to Denver for their in-home maternity session in summer 2023 (blog coming soon!), and finally got to meet their new baby during their newborn photo session in late 2023. K and L now live in an adorable home in northwest Denver. Tree-lined streets, Craftsman porches, patio beers…I can see why they haven’t left Colorado! We spent a lovely morning hanging out in their s ..read more

As a mom of three, I know exactly how hard it can be to get your kids excited for any scheduled task, much less family photos. And when so many people (myself included) have childhood memories of itchy clothes, hot indoor studios, and having to plaster on a smile for the camera, it's no surprise that our kids dread this childhood rite of passage too!
