If you all haven’t noticed yet… I get pretty excitable. I love what I do but more importantly I love the people I work with. So much so they must all simply be my friends. 2015 was good to my humble little business. We ended the season with the most wonderful families. I truly love all the connections we captured this year. I see what I do as so much more than images… I see them as memories and as a small but special part of these family’s journey. I want to witness the love they have each other and not merely their perfect poses or their pretty smiles. I will say however that I do not underestimate the power of the little things… such as mustard yellow and pretty scenery. It is all just inspired into one big beautiful privilege to photograph. I have so much more to blog from before I took the big maternity leave but I couldn’t resist sharing these peeps. Especially because Nicole Smith is the brainchild behind Nicole Smith Photography out of Nebraska and not only is she insanely talented but one of the kindest most down to earth people I have ever met. Of course her family would rock!

I hope you got those Christmas Cards out, Mama. I couldn’t wait any longer to share!

And brace yourselves for the biggest gallery EVER. We have 40 something days until our sixth and final baby Cornish is due so I am trying to keep busy and admit Maternity leave is harder than I thought it would be haha. I began booking 2016 earlier and am pretty much besides myself with all of the new and returning families.

Perfection, never cease to amaze me! <3


Here we go!

First off can I just say how much I loved 2015?? I met the most amazing families, spent time in the prettiest locations, got to teach some pretty amazing women about photography AND did some traveling. Many of you might also know that we found out early this year we are also expecting our very last hen… next month in fact (though No, for business reasons I will likely be keeping my current business name.) Yes. I will be a mother of SIX. Life is so good my friends. In fact maybe just now you all see where that passion for family photography stems from. It starts right here in my heart of hearts with my own children. Our perfect half a dozen.

I am completely thrilled to plan for this coming year and hope so much to meet so many new lovely families as well as love all over the families already very much a part of the My Four Hens Family. Since I decided that aside from one huge and awesome teaching commitment I made back before we knew of our very last hen-I will not be doing any traveling outside of Colorado next year, it has given me some much needed time to really continue to focus and grown my business here. That also means MORE time for sessions since it killed me having to tell families last year I was booked up here before I was ready to be. Time flies when you are having fun… and when you have a lot of kids haha. Either way, this year off from travel will be amazing since I get to really snuggle my kids AND more clients. This also means more times in the foothills and the mountains and some new fun packages that I didn’t currently offer. Packages that will be priced at a VERY special price just for this Holiday season before I begin booking full 2016 rates. As always I will be offering sessions to Families, Couples, Lifestyle Family, Lifestyle Newborn AND maternity. If you are trying to think of the PERFECT Holiday gift for a special family you know as well, this is it!

You can read below for full package options and to purchase and snag your spot before they are gone. Note that despite being here a bit more I can only offer SO many of these due to the discounted nature so they are on a first come first serve basis. As always I am based out of the Fort Collins, CO area and service the immediate area. If you are hoping for the big giant mountains though I have a VERY special package for that too and will be traveling up to Estes Park, Colorado for these. Also be sure to check the very bottom for a pretty slideshow of a few of our 2015 highlights!

Note: there are exactly 8 each of these packages to go around. Once that quota has been met-I will be closing this special. After that booking will be for full pricing/rates. Shoot me a Message via the contact form here, on the fan page OR via my e-mail address (SayHello @ My Four Hens Photography. Com) Remove spaces with the package of your preference and I will get your invoice set up and the time frame from there. I can NOT save your spot until your deposits have been made.

ADORE YOU and all you do!!! Can’t wait to see you next year!

This beautiful Mama came to me earlier in the year for an in person mentorship. I instantly felt I had made a friend and met a kindred spirit. I truly enjoyed getting to spend that particular day with her and was so happy when I found she connected with me on my personal Facebook page. Her love for her family was just so abundant and special in her Facebook posts (I usually do try to friend all my mentee’s after our time is over if they aren’t already so I can properly stalk them so it worked out haha) and I was touched by her big giant heart. They adopted an AMAZING little boy this past year, so when she reached out to me to photograph her entire family… I was besides myself. I looked forward to this session from the minute we began planning. I can’t wait to watch these little ones grow as time marches on. She has a stunning mountainside home in Colorado a ways away from me so I will be heading up there for something lifestyle inspired and hope to meet her after that again too because I have a feeling they are going to become quite the muse. From her curly locks to her little guy’s love for dinosaurs to her daughter’s amazing imagination and her husband’s kind and patient spirit-time flew all too fast. I love what we came away with and can only imagine as they grow and time stretches on the photos we will be able to capture will only be more special. Nothing inspires me like emotion and connection and the kind of relationship this family shares.

As a note I will begin book 2016 sessions on the 16th of this month so mark your calendars if you are hoping to come hang with me. You can get full information first on the fan page HERE when I open these dates. This will be one of the locations for the Colorado Creek sessions where we will be getting IN the water here. YES! Come play, splash and make some wonderful new memories with me!

Ahh, I love this family so much! What a gorgeous, GORGEOUS shoot, Sarah! Absolutely beautiful! <3

Ronne Breaux Pierce

Sarah thank you so much, these mean the world to us. 2 canvases about to go up soon and trust me it was hard to narrow it down! <3 And we can’t wait until next year’s session. You are so easy to shoot with and yes the time flew. We think the world of you and your family. Much love and gratitude for everything from what I learned from you to what you captured here to the kind words and gestures. <3 Love Fest! (and Lisa J Holloway thank you so very much for everything too <3 Love to you as well)

This family. I don’t even have proper words. I am obsessed with the family dynamic so the more the merrier. Being a Mother of almost six myself when I get a big family something connects on a very personal level. To watch these sweet souls was such a gift. To photograph them even more. I could have stayed there for hours. We battled the busiest day in the park and made it work and my goodness you wouldn’t know there was another soul there.

Thank you beautiful “O” Family. I know our paths will cross again.
