I met Christine and Mike in 2010 when they booked me to photograph their drop dead gorgeous wedding at The Ritz-Carlton Denver in the summer of 2011. We had an easy and warm connection right off the bat and their wedding was one of the most gorgeous I have ever had the honor to be a part of. After the wedding was over Christine and I stayed in touch and of course I was thrilled for her when I found out she and Mike were expecting. I love it when my wedding clients turn into portrait clients, especially when it means I get to help them document the first year of their child’s life. I’ve come to the conclusion that being booked for my babies first year collection by one of my wedding couples is the biggest compliment I can possibly get. To me, it means they love their wedding photos so much that they want me back for more!
It was absolutely wonderful to see Christine and Mike together at the maternity photo shoot. They were both so happy and so excited about the next chapter in their lives! Baby Ava was born on December 6, 2012 weighing in at 7 pounds and 2 ounces and is absolute perfection. I can’t wait to get to know this darling baby girl and watch her grow up over the next year and beyond. At our newborn photo shoot Ava was so calm and so sweet and I loved seeing her beautiful nursery too. It was also fantastic to see Christine taking to motherhood like an old pro. She was so easy and natural with baby Ava, it was as if Ava had always been there. Newborns always melt my heart and Ava was no exception. We dressed her up in darling outfits and even got a few photos with her pup, already protecting his baby sis. That or he was merely expressing his dissatisfaction at getting knocked down a rung on the priority ladder. 😉 Thank you Christine and Mike for inviting me into your lives for another year of friendship and creating beautiful memories together. We are on our way!
