Lots of laughter {Denver family photographer}

I had this fun downtown session with a great family on Saturday. We were really wondering if we should reschedule the session for Monday because the weather report was so iffy. (And if you live in Denver, you know you can never trust the weather, because it's schizophrenic). When we left to go downtown, it was snowing in Parker--but bright and sunny at Larimer Square! On the way, the dad said, "People aren't going to stop and stare at us, are they?" I assured him that I had never had that happen on a shoot. Well, wouldn't you know it--people stopped and stared. Mostly to say, "That's a great picture, " or "What a cute family." Or to compliment me on my large camera :) Despite that, we had a fun time, and there was loads of tickling, funny faces, and laughing during the shoot. By the end, we were all freezing (even though it was sunny), but it's a good thing we did it, because now it's Monday and snowing everywhere!

Wonderful pictures of a beautiful family. Our friends are jealous that we have such adorable grandchildren. Of course, they get their good looks from their parents and grandparents.

Well done. The individual shots of the kids are exceptional--especially capturing their eyes. Well composed family shots too.
