The Clarke Family's Fall Session | Northern Colorado Family Photographer

northern colorado family and child photographer Lily Jean Photography

Facebook recently told me that I've known Maleia for 9 years. I'm not sure how it's possible for time to move so quickly, but I've gotten to see and document her family growing each year for the last few years, and it's such an honor! Her sweet kiddos were all smiles and energy at the start of the session. By the end, sweet one year old Blake was not having any of this 5pm session time and he let us know it! He still got to have lots of fun picking flowers, reading books, and holding hands with mom and dad! 

Thank you Maleia and Brady for trusting me with your memories each year! Enjoy your sneak peek!

5 reasons to consider a lifestyle newborn session

Lifestyle newborn photography is gaining popularity, and I couldn't be more thrilled! I have such a passion for relaxed and fun lifestyle sessions and here's why:

1. It's authentic.  

You get to remember the first moments together with your new baby, exactly as they are!

2. You don't have to leave the house!

If you've ever had a newborn, you know I don't really have to elaborate on this one.

3. They take less time. 

Because babies can be awake or asleep, my average lifestyle session takes about one-third as much time as a posed newborn session where baby needs to be in a deep sleep.

4. It's timeless.

Newborn photography trends have come and gone over the years, but authentic photos of you holding your new baby will never go out of style!  Which brings me to my next point:

5. You can get in the frame too! 

A lot of new moms don't feel very photogenic right after giving birth. I know I didn't! But as tired as we feel at the time, many moms and their kids look back and treasure those photos that document some of their very first moments with one another.

What do you think? Is a lifestyle session for you? Or would you prefer the classic posed images?

Rebecca and Jim wanted a simple, intimate wedding, and they couldn't have picked a more beautiful place to have it! The ceremony and reception were at the Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood, Colorado on a beautiful windy, rainy, and sunny (so basically typical Colorado) day!

With the beautiful Rocky mountains as their backdrop, Rebecca and Jim said their vows during a short and sweet ceremony in front of a few of their closest family members and friends.  Rebecca added some gorgeous special touches of greenery and lavender florals with just a hint of gold.
