When sweet J invited me to her barn to photograph her maternity session I was instantly inspired. I admit I have a bunch of beautiful locations in my back pocket. Colorado is a special place, but being able to meet my clients in a place that is meaningful to them is all that more special.
They have the most wonderful family connection. Aside from the gorgeous farm setting, the foothills off in the distance, the light that day, and of course their beautiful animals, J was just radiant. The love her and her husband share is so transparent and so special and to say I am honored to be able to capture that, even in some small way…is an understatement. They were completely open to my crazy experimentation and we even got to get in the pen and play with their animals. Being shoulder to shoulder with a horse is such an amazing experience in itself. They have such a majestic regal quality. I can only imagine the special childhood their little boy is going to have surrounded by all of this.
And we had FUN! Their pup was an assistant of sorts running up to me as we snapped photos and even took a moment to pose for me. Their horse took a special liking to my afghan and tried to well… eat it at one point haha, but aside from that even nuzzled Mama’s belly and SMILED. Yes! If you haven’t seen a horse smile it’s pretty adorable. It was almost something out of a movie scene going through the images.
We opened season just a bit earlier this year since our travel schedule is a bit more hectic than previous years, and this was the perfect way to kick everything off. I can not wait to photograph their sweet baby when he arrives. He is already so loved. It is just abundant and obvious that this family is something amazing and special.
Thank you for allowing me into your beautiful world.
