Mother and daughter photography team

We are a mother-daughter photography team, and we've been in business since 2004. We represent four generations of professional photographers. We believe that money is better spent on experiences are than on things, but that photographs are the best way to recall those experiences and pass them down to your children's children. We love to travel, and have had the wonderful opportunity to photograph weddings from Los Angeles to Buffalo, WY to New York City.

We love to collaborate with our clients. Our clients have brought us unity beakers in the place of unity candles, a bride in a fighter jet, and engagement sessions with hairless cats. We didn’t even flinch when one couple wanted to stage scary “The Shining” pictures at the Stanley Hotel- we went out and bought fake blood. We love that our couples just can’t help but be themselves.

We understand that having your picture taken can be stressful- on your wedding day doubly so. We work hard to provide just enough coaching and leadership so that everyone feels comfortable and cared for, without being so assertive that we take over your day. Our clients often comment on how quickly we fit in to the group, and we've been called 'ninjas' on more than one occasion for our sneaky candid photo skills.

I feel that education should never stop – get out and try new things, travel the world, cook new foods, meet new and unusual people. Life’s short…. experiment!

I love dark chocolate, Mexican food, homemade ice cream, book stores and an occasional drink. An occasional drink with friends is even better. I refuse to watch scary films. Life’s way too short to pay good money to be scared. I am very grateful to whoever invented the spell checker and the calculator. As a California girl at heart, I’d rather be living in a much warmer climate, preferable one with a beach. I love my husband of 42 years, our four children and two amazing grand daughters. Add to that 3 cats… it’s a full house!

Both Amanda and I are active volunteers with Destination Imagination Colorado teaching creative problem solving skills to students in kindergarten through college.

I love to travel, and I read a lot, maybe 2 books a week. A number of these books feature swords or wizards- I realize that this makes me a giant nerd.

My degree is in Costume Design, so I love getting back in the theater. Recently, I have had the joy of taking that love of theater and photography and combining it in photographing for fine artists. It has been my pleasure to work with people from Wonderbound, the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado, The Denver Symphony and Leon Gallery, to name a few.

I actively volunteer for Destination Imagination (you might know it better as Odyssey of the Mind...). I obsess over making homemade ice cream (it's a big deal in our family- there's a trophy and everything) and The Decemberists. My husband and I have two black kitties, and we think they are both very lucky cats to have around indeed.
