Lenderink Family Portraits {Colorado Family Photographer}

Oh I just adore this family! I met them several years ago when I was commissioned to photograph their wedding, remember the firetruck wedding? That was theirs! So cute!! Anyhow it’s been a while and they commissioned me again to do their family portraits. All Jenn said was I want a prettly location and SNOW! Most people don’t wish for snow but for these guys it was perfect! The day we selected couldn’t have been more perfect either, it had snowed a good 6 inches or more just the day before and we were blessed with a gorgeous winter wonderland! We choose the Foote Lagoon for their location and it was beautiful!

I have to admit I have always shied away from shooting in the snow because I thought it would make posing more difficult, variety would be less, it would be cold, my clients would be miserable and so on. In many cases this may be true but not always! I LOVED it!! And in fact I can’t wait to do it again!! So if you love this snowy look and are looking to get your portraits done, let’s get you scheduled!!

Here are a few of my favorites, enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Jenn thank you for having me do these portraits for you!! It was such a pleasure working with you guys again!!


Krista and Jarod Engagement {Colorado Engagement Photographer}

It was a gorgeous day up in Estes Park, slightly chilly, we saw a few sprinkles, both rain and snow (that’s the average day in Estes lol!) but overall we were blessed! I have always used Mapquest to map out my locations and this is the day that finally ruined that! Have you ever printed your directions and it says slight right here when it’s really a left turn or keep going straight here when it’s really that slight right? Yea, that’s Mapquest for you!! Unfortunately Mapquest did this to us this day, getting us lost on the way to our first location! Thank God for GPS on my phone, we were able to get it pulled up and managed to get there in a relatively timely manner!

So thankful we did finally arrive as the barn and location we used was just stunning! Here are a few of my favorites, enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t you just love Krista’s boots? So cute!

Krista had brought liquid chalk to write their date on the bottom of their shoes like so but unfortunately it just wouldn’t work. Fortunately I was able to add the date in post and get virtually the same effect! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just LOVE this shot!!!

Krista and Jarod thank you for your patience during our slightly rocky start!! I had a blast with you guys and am so excited for your big day! ๐Ÿ™‚
