The weekend before Thanksgiving is a time for lounging on the sofa and planning out how much stuffing you can eat while still leaving room for pie. Usually, at least. This year, we spent the weekend taking some outdoor maternity photos with Mariah and her beautiful family at Chautauqua Park in Boulder. Even though it was mid-November, you can see that it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in these outdoor maternity photos! A Family Affair While some maternity shoots are solo events, Mariah got her whole family in on the fun. Her daughters came out equipped with earmuffs and mittens, a wise (and fashionable!) decision given the chilly weather. They seemed to have an absolute (snow)ball playing around and taking photos with Mom and Dad. Of course, in addition to full family photos, we were also sure to capture some more solemn moments between Mariah and her husband. Getting down on one knee in the snow is a true sign of dedication - we think we'll stay behind the camera, though. Snowy Chautauqua Part of why we were so excited about these outdoor maternity photos was the location. Chautauqua Park is one of our favorite spots in
From photographing their engagement to their wedding, we have made a great friendship with these two! Now it’s three years since their engagement, and they are back with a baby bump! Alexandra and Noam are expecting, and we went to photograph their maternity photos at Lost Gulch Overlook! Look Who’s Back, Back Again! Lost Gulch Overlook near Boulder is a frequent spot for us for so many reasons. As you can see from all our other Lost Gulch photo sessions, this spot is ideal for any occasion! Colorado mountain views? Check. Sunrise and sunset glows? Check. Wooded hideaways? Also check. No matter the time of year or the occasion, Lost Gulch is kind of our not-so-secret spot, and Alexandra and Noam were the perfect subjects! Who would have thought that when we photographed their engagement and wedding back in 2015 that we would be on top of a mountain helping celebrate their coming baby? These two are due in September of this year, and their excitement is more than evident. Eager with kisses and genuine in laughter, Alexandra and Noam clearly can’t wait to meet this little one in person. Best Dressed While there is a lot on the worldwide
“Nothing can dim the light that comes from within,” Maya Angelo once said. Wow was she right—especially when it comes to Katy and Dan’s exciting news! Their party of two is becoming a party of three! We went back to Lost Gulch Overlook for this couple's maternity session, and it was something extraordinary. Majestic Magic What's the big deal about Lost Gulch Overlook anyway? For one thing, this setting is a familiar one for our From the Hip Photo fam (see our sunrise shoot at this location here)! Moreover, it never fails to take our breath away thanks to stunning views (and maybe a little altitude)? Located on Flagstaff Mountain near Boulder, Colorado, this location is accessible, popular and provides unbeatable landscapes and vistas. While the essence of this session was to capture Katy and Dan as happy, budding parents, this shoot was like something out of a movie or a music video. I mean seriously — Katy looked freaking majestic in her floor-length dress and tastefully braided hair. Dan’s tall build and wide smile made him the gentle giant who clearly loves and adores his wife and his upcoming little one! As photographers, we are so lucky to help couples
Over the river and through the woods, we captured Rachel and Justin's maternity pictures for their itty bitty, oh-so-lovable future family member. Located in the quaint town of Golden, Colorado, Clear Creek Historic Park proved the perfect hideaway setting for this couple and their coming baby. A popular little town of about 19,000 people, Golden is a throbbing attraction for tourists and natives alike. So, you won't be shocked that we were thrilled to go to this breathtaking location to capture their maternity pictures (see our recent engagement post at Clear Creek!). From vintage porch steps to lush to green trails, the secret corners of this park helped Rachel and Justin contemplate what's to come! Guess How Much I Love You It is undeniable from these heartwarming photos that these two are more than ready to make this duo a trio. The couple looked like they could be in a fairytale with their suave outfits and awe - worthy accessories. Rachel and Justin had us dreaming a dream we never wanted to wake up from! The creams, browns, and soft blues of their clothes mingled well with the backdrops of water and weathered wood. Justin's joyful personality and intentionality was clearly
Cheesman Park, an iconic 81-acre Denver park and neighborhood has no doubt been witness to many major milestones in the lives of it's nearby residents. However, it is unlikely that a couple as kindhearted and madly in love as Hijschen & Rob have graced this historic park’s grounds...until now that is.
Congratulations because you're going to be parents...again! And what a better way to celebrate then get the whole family together for a photo session?
Maternity photos are unique in that they document a seemingly fleeting chapter in a woman's life: pregnancy. This couple from Texas and their handsome young boy all have one big thing in common...their family is growing!
A stunning sunset during your photo session never fails to make us happy. But make it a sunset during a beautiful lakeside Bohemian maternity photo session and...well, it's what every photographer dreams about! The adorable Perez family joined us at Cherry Creek Reservoir to document their growing family and we couldn't have had more fun during their photo session.
