The Fender Family

Family portrait sessions always pick up in the Autumn. Everyone begins getting ready for Christmas card season. I love it! There is an energy about a family unit. I love the tension and love between siblings, the goofy fun that so many families have. I love working with them in their element and helping them to express their true selves. This cute family was a joy to photograph! Loved working with these kids! Hope you guys love your photos as much as I loved working with you.

Love how they incorporated their Grandma’s chair into the photo. Even though every kid won’t inherit the chair, every kid will inherit a picture of them in the special chair from Grandma. What family heirloom or awesome prop would you bring to your own session?


The Ford Family- A Sneak Peek

Here’s a sneak peek of a super cute little family I photographed this morning! Their little boy was so adorable…and so camera friendly! Can’t wait to begin editing all of these pictures.

Family sessions are in full swing at Blue Rock Photos. Don’t miss your opportunity to get some great family photos for Christmas cards or just to change the art work on your walls at home. Sessions are booking up quickly. Only a few more spots available in October and very limited availability in November. Hope to see you soon!


Jena and Brandon- Spruce Mountain Ranch- Larkspur, CO

I think I swooned a little when I first came to this location. But then, I’ve always been a little bit of a country girl at heart. A big ranch surrounded by the mountains? Oh yeah. It was pretty much love at first sight for me. The grounds and buildings are gorgeous…and the staff is super friendly. I got to work with the entirely organized and wonderful Sarah Viera of Sarah Viera Events again. So naturally, between my super laid back bride with all of her cute details and the wonderful team from both Spruce Mountain Ranch and Sarah Viera Events…this was just a magical experience for everyone involved.

Congratulations, Jena and Brandon! We loved being a part of your love story!

Whitney and Chris- August 30, 2014- Vail, CO Wedding

Occasionally we get invited to a wedding where the party after the ceremony is just off the hook! This was one of those weddings and definitely one of those parties. Amanda and I danced and had fun! (I did the WORM for crying out loud! Good thing I’ve been doing some push-ups lately or I would have smacked my face on the floor for sure!) The cake was AMAZING…and believe me, we’ve eaten a lot of cake. The DJ kept the party hopping all night long. One cute grandmother in the bathroom told me she thought she was going to collapse. She said she kept waiting for a break in the music, but it never came! She finally decided to make a break for it and take a rest. Well done, Whitney and Chris…and a huge congratulations!

Elin and Keith- August 23, 2014- Colorado Springs, CO Wedding

This was my first wedding with the groom in uniform. It brought back so much nostalgia for me. There are some times when I miss my own husband being in uniform. Elin did an amazing job selecting colors to go with all of the military elements they mixed into the wedding. I loved the navy blue and pink that she chose. Everything was so elegant and beautiful! Sarah Viera of helped to orchestrate everything and make it absolutely lovely!
