Coal Ridge Senior | Emily

Coal Ridge Senior, Emily will also turn her tassel later today!  Later this fall she will be headed off to pursue a degree as a dental hygienist and she will also be playing volleyball.  (She's pretty good too, I might add!). I am really going to miss her and her funny sense of humor.  I call her my pig whisperer as she often baby sits my pig for me (she thinks the Pig hate her), haha!!  Good luck to you, Emily girl!!  I am so excited for you and your future!  Have fun today!

Dirty Laundry | Roaring Fork Senior Photographer

Yearbook photos have been turned in and this Roaring Fork Senior Photographer is celebrating another successfully busy season!  Thank you to all of the High School Seniors who have chosen CJP to create some totally rad images to document this important milestone!  What do I do now that the season has ended?  Well, I get to catch up on all the adult tasks that come with owning a business like taxes and the not so fun stuff that these seniors will soon get to complain about as well.  But, during the midst of adulthood I enjoy getting to spend every chance I get with these young people before they embark on their new adventures.  It's a time for me to be creative, play, and shoot without pressure.  That's exactly what we did here in our local laundromat!  Enough with the cold winter months, let's do something indoors.  So I called up these two awesome gals and said "hey, find some retro"ish" outfits and let's go play in the Laundromat (because I had been there not long ago and the light was amazing!).  We did and we had a blast!  Although, the Laundromat was quite busy - who knew?

Glenwood Springs Wedding Photographer | Matt + Amy

Another GORGEOUS wedding has taken place this summer and this time we traveled lengths of the Roaring Fork Valley.  Matt and Amy were wed at the beautiful St. Stephen Catholic Church in Glenwood Springs, Colorado with the reception held at the lovely Redstone Inn.  The church in Glenwood is stunning!  If you haven't been, I suggest you put it on your list of places to visit.  It's truly incredible!  Following the ceremony the bridal party hopped into a party bus provided by Charm Chauffeurs and traveled to Redstone, CO for the reception.  We made stops in Carbondale for photo opps with the Majestic Mt. Sopris and then proceeded to venture past Redstone for photos near Marble.  It was quite the day and so many amazing photos for the new couple to enjoy for eternity!  Take a look and be sure to check out the vendors for all of your wedding planning needs!

Silt Colorado Family Photographer | The Herrera's

Finally!  We are moved and settled and I can officially call myself your Silt Colorado Family Photographer!  I am so happy to be living in a new town that has me surrounded by so much beauty.  Don't get me wrong, I love the scenery of GJ but there is something about exploring a new home that is so exciting!

Here is a sneak peek at my first family session in Silt, CO.  I am in love!!  The family, the lighting, the scenery!  Thank you to the Herrera family for taking a chance and choosing the new kid in town as your photographer!  I enjoyed every minute of it and I can't wait to work with you all again in the future!

The Yeagers | Colorado Fall Family Portraits

Fall is my favorite season for two reasons... 1. The Colorado colors are breathtaking and provide incredible natural backdrops for those outdoor photo sessions!  2. It is a family Photographer's busiest time of the year!  Fall also means that I get to see my favorite clients year after year and nothing makes me more happy than to reconnect and see how those babies have grown!

Katie Mae | Grand Junction Newborn Photographer

Earlier this past winter I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding for a couple in Snowmass, Colorado and just recently that same couple was blessed with a healthy baby girl!  Katie Mae was born on June 5th @ 3:20 am, weighing in at 7 lbs 15 oz. and measuring 20.5 inches tall!  Her parents came to visit me in the studio about a week after her arrival and we were able to capture some beautiful images.  My favorite part of Photography is the relationship I build with my clients and seeing their families year after year.

Welcome to the world, baby Katie!  I can't wait to watch you grow!
