I am one of the fortunate people with a career that allows me to spend time with wonderful people. I get to cuddle darling newborns, play peek-a-boo with shy three year olds, capture the joy of a new family, and the contented smile of a grandmother getting her entire family all in one place at one time. I have had the privilege of capturing a grooms first look at his beautiful bride, and watching the excitement of children all dressed up for their first trip to the Colorado Ballet’s performance of the Nutcracker. I have helped new business owners show their customers what they have to offer, and captured bands performing for their adoring fans. I am grateful for my wonderful clients who allow me to share these moments with them.
I love the reality of everyday life, and the beauty of the in between moments. I work to capture those moments in every photo I take. I have been a wife to an amazing man for 10 years, and I’m a mother to 3 fantastic kids (or minions as I call them).

It isn't a current tradition but I'm hoping to make The Nutcracker Ballet a tradition with my daughter. She loves dancing and the theaters so I think this would be an incredible experience for her!
You both look like you really had a fun filled day. I can't wait until The Nutcracker Ballet comes to my city.
I grew up with the Nutcracker and want to take my daughter. It is a wonderful show and it looks like you had a very special evening! I love the pics, especially the one of the two of you and her sleeping. So precious!!!
I am so happy to see mother and daughter traditions like this – you are a special mom!

This is a gorgeous place, and I won't soon forget it. Attended an event here sponsored by the company. The reception hour at venues San Francisco was held in one of the rooms next to the hall. I loved their buttery mashed sweet potato.
