Mrs. Colorado 2011

This past week I had the opportunity to do the official portraits for Mrs. Cherry Creek, who is running for Mrs. Colorado 2011. Her name is Valentina Anderson, and her story is quite inspiring--from being an orphan in the Ukraine to now living her dream in America. You can go see her and all the other contestants compete for the crown on Saturday, March 5th at 7:00 p.m. at the Buell Theater. If anyone is interested in tickets, please contact me as soon as possible!

Here are some of my favorites from our shoot. This first picture I love because I caught her off-guard. I think she looks so natural and beautiful. I love the picture of her dancing with her husband, and also the umbrella shot, because it is different and unexpected. This is her main picture that will be published in the pageant magazine. I bet nobody else has one like it!

Bath time! {Denver baby photographer}

Oh my gosh, I am dying at these pictures. These two boys and their baby sister are killing me with their adorableness! In fact, the portrait of the baby girl is my new homepage picture for my website. I could stare at it all day!

Baby born on 1-11-11 at 1:11!

If you live in Denver, you may have seen the news story about this baby. It was on all the channels, so this is a famous baby! She was such a doll and I had a wonderful photo shoot with her. Her gorgeous hair accessories can be found at Banner Boutique. What a way to start the new year!
