katy's lucky day

She is a goddess… all mamas are, really. And being able to document a pregnancy through a maternity session like this is just amazing to me. To capture this sweet miracle, still growing away inside is so precious. Babies are constantly being born so it’s easy to take for granted what a big deal it really is to be pregnant, and safely deliver a healthy baby. Making images like these for a family to look back on is so important. For a baby to grow up and see how strong and beautiful their mama was while she carried them is a true gift that I will never tire of being a part of…

gabriella's lucky day

Newborn sessions are amazing because no two are alike. Just like there is no other baby like yours, her session will be different from any one I’ve done before. I like to tell my clients that we are documenting exactly who your baby is on the day of the shoot. There is no right or wrong way for them to be. They are perfection exactly as they are. Sleepy, alert, content, crying, perfection. Newborn sessions are a beautiful time set aside to capture all the love that your new family has for each other. The babies get to dictate how things go for the most part, but there’s always lots of time for snuggles and capturing all the sweet details that make your baby unique. Oh, how I wish I had images of myself like this when I was first born. I’d love to create treasures for your little one to look back on when they are grown.

luci's lucky day

What better way to start a New Year than with a precious new life? I’ve forever been fascinated with capturing beautiful babies in a way that is timeless and honors them as they are on the day of our session. My goal is to document the beautiful connection that you have with your baby and the sweet details that change so quickly. Those details are so easy to forget in those early days of having a new little one to care for.

Are you expecting a new baby soon? I’d love to chat about how I can help you create beautiful images so you never forget those precious details!

rylie's lucky day

I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate the end of 2018 than with this precious milestone session! This has been an amazing year filled beautiful families. For those of you who chose me to capture these fleeting moments in your life, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. For those of you who have little ones (or soon to be little ones), and looking for a maternity, newborn, baby or family photographer, I would love to hear from you. It’s so cliche to say that these moments pass quickly but goodness, it’s so true. Let’s get your family scheduled for a session and create some gorgeous treasures for you. Wishing you a beautiful New Year’s surrounded by those you love the most.

sarah's lucky day

I’m closing in on the 10th anniversary of owning Lucky Friday Studios and sometimes I just look back in awe of what I’ve experienced over the last decade. Being able to document these sweet moments as young families grow is so incredibly humbling. I’m honored that most of my families stay with me and continue to trust me to document them as their children grow up. It’s hands down the most rewarding part of my career. Being able to create beautiful images of people that I’ve grown to love is the best thing ever…

olivia's lucky day

I truly believe that the universe has a perfect way of bringing the right people into your life.  This gorgeous mama had seen some of my work through friends on Facebook and contacted me for some natural, baby-led images in the studio of their newborn daughter.  I feel so grateful for those who have shared my work and have brought new clients into my life.  Not only does it allow me to keep doing what I love but I've become friends with some of the most wonderful people that I never would have met otherwise.  This family is no exception.  They are some of the sweetest, funniest, most genuine people I know.   Photographing such a special time in their life was an absolute joy.  

As with all of my sessions, I love it when the whole family is involved.  I think it brings a variety to the session and helps to tell the story of that day in your lives.  Having images where the whole family is included allows me to create priceless visual memories that will be cherished more as time goes on and treasured by generations.

If you are expecting, I'd love to chat with you about photographing your family.  I offer sessions before you bring your new baby home from the hospital, in studio, in your home, and on-location with Denver and some of it's most beautiful outdoor locations as our backdrop.   

the rose family's lucky day... denver maternity and newborn photographer

Every once in a while I have a session where the stars align, everything falls together and the whole session is just a dream.  This was absolutely one of those nights.  We took to the mountains for this special maternity session to capture some of the last moments before this beautiful family welcomed their next baby boy.   

I always plan out my sessions so that they flow smoothly and feel fun and effortless while matching my clients' style and end goal for how they want to be photographed.  I think it's way more fun for everyone involved if I have more in mind before a session starts than just telling you to stand somewhere pretty and smile.  My goal is to get you exploring and interacting with each other.  That way I can capture the details from this time in your life in a way that will stir emotion in your heart when you look back on your images years from now.  The way your babies looked at you... how tiny their little hands were on your tummy while their next little brother grew away on the inside... the pure joy and happiness that you felt from just being together.

It's such an honor when someone asks me to create images of such important things.  If you are expecting, I'd love to chat with you about creating a custom baby plan that will document some of the most important memories for your family! 

gina's lucky day... denver maternity photography

There is something absolutely magical about photographing a maternity session.  Pregnancy is such a beautiful, unique experience for every woman and documenting your family before the birth of a new baby will be a priceless treasure that can truly never be recreated.  My studio at the Denver Photo Collective offers the most gorgeous, light-filled backdrop for this kind of a session.  The white rooms and lovely light allow me to create stunning images that are timeless, clean and transfer beautifully to heirloom albums and fine art prints.  For Gina, I designed a studio boudoir maternity session and I'm completely obsessed with how everything turned out!  If you are expecting, I would love to chat with you about I can design the maternity session of your dreams!

lauren's lucky day... littleton senior photography

Bring me ALL the sweet senior girls!  Lauren absolutely blew me away during her session and reminded me how much I adore senior girl portraits.  There is something really special about capturing such a traditional milestone in a girl's life and creating images that she and her family will look back on for generations.  I'm so excited to catch back up with Lauren later this year when she chooses the college she will be attending and create some portraits to celebrate!

the solheim family's lucky day

I had a beautiful fall session with the sweetest family last week.  I absolutely love that these sisters have made a tradition of having photos done with their families and parents (papa and mimi!).  These will be such treasures for the boys as they grow up.  While most people were heading up into the mountains in search of Colorado's amazing fall colors, we opted to explore beautiful downtown Denver in search of something a little different.  This quickly turned into one of my favorite locations ever!  Orange and red ivy, a quaint old bridge, the light rail and lots of fun urban backdrops made for some pretty amazing images!  I hope they love these images as much as I loved creating them!

kyan's lucky day - sitting up milestone session - Littleton family photographer

I absolutely love sitting up sessions.  This milestone always seems to coincide with lots of personality, big, beautiful smiles, and BONUS: they can't run away from me yet!  Seriously, though, there is such an amazing transformation from newborn to sitting up and it makes me so happy to get to document how much these little ones have grown. 

When I did his big brother's sitting up session Jamie had the cutest little basket to put him in and wanted some of Kyan in a basket too.  How sweet is that?!  I feel so honored that I've been able to document these kids and their beautiful family as they grow!

violet & lyra's lucky day

I've been photographing this sweet family since Violet and Lyra were growing away inside their mama's tummy.  For this session Katie asked to do something a little different and I'm so happy she did!   We decided to go on an adventure together down south Pearl Street in Denver and see if we could find some fun along the way!  I'm in love with the sweetness I captured on our journey, especially the excitement that the girls had when they met a big doggie, the way Keith looks at Katie like she hung the moon and the beautifully obvious love that they all have for each other.  Documenting afternoons like this for families is such a wonderful way to fill my days.

the ohl family's lucky day - california sessions

There is something so special about doing sessions when I go back to California.  The feel of being home, the beach and the air out there are still such a part of me.  This session was even more special because I was able to photograph some of my best friends from high school and their gorgeous kids.  Cameron and Laurissa started dating when we were sophmores and they just celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary!  It was so amazing to be able to capture the love they all have for each other at one of my favorite places in the world.  I love you guys - thanks for trusting me to document these memories for you!

haiden's lucky day - littleton newborn photographer

There is nothing quite like photographing new life.  There is so much beauty in the entire situation and the parents are always bursting with love and pride.  I love the whole process of making these images.  The quiet moments spent watching a new mom feed her baby, waiting for them to drift off to peaceful sleep.  Watching the parents snuggle and cuddle and love on this perfect little person that they just brought home.  And knowing that I'm documenting moments that will only mean more as this little boy grows - moments that he will share one day with his children.

shannon and jason's lucky day - littleton maternity photography

This beautiful maternity session left me speechless.  The light was absolutely gorgeous that evening and I couldn't have asked for a sweeter and more fun couple to document.  The water, the mountains, Red Rocks in the distance and one of the most lovely mama-to-be's I've met in a long time made for a maternity session any mom would dream of.  I can't wait to share the images of the sweet baby boy that was growing away in that beautiful belly!

beth's lucky day - littleton senior photography

Spread your wings, sweet girl. Soon it will be time to fly...

Every once in a while a session comes along that just feels magical.  When Beth said that she wanted to shoot her high school senior portraits in the forest I could have burst from happiness.  I've been dreaming of a forest session for a while and this shoot delivered everything I'd been hoping for and more.  A beautiful girl, beautiful light and a beautiful evening transformed into one of my favorite sessions ever...

Beth, I hope that your senior year is amazing and that you treasure these images as much as I do.  I wish you so much success and joy in life!

kate's lucky day - littleton family photography

This session is going down as one of my all time favorites.  Kate is so down to earth and fun and her love for her kids is obvious.  When she told me that she wanted to make sure we got some shots of her holding her little boy before he was too big for her to pick up and images with his favorite lovey before he outgrew it I actually cried.  That is why I do this.  To document precious little things like that before they pass.   

I'm always so honored when I'm hired to photograph a family but this session had even extra meaning behind it for me.  You see, Kate is also a photographer - and a brilliant one I might add.  Her work is truly emotive, real and simply stunning.  Her trusting me to capture something as special as her with her gorgeous babies for a "mama & me" session is huge.  HUGE. 

Kate, I'm so grateful for your friendship.  You are a beautiful woman inside and out and the perfect example of what being an awesome mom and all around human being looks like.  I hope I did you and your babies love for each other justice.
