Kai is studying this move very closely.

Our Thanksgiving

Over Thanksgiving, we got to warm up in Dallas to be with Matt’s family for the holiday. We had a wonderful time there and enjoyed seeing fall again. While there, we did a quick portrait session for Matt’s brother Adam and his family. It was a little different being in a place where there were no mountains in the background, but those gorgeous yellow and green trees really made up for it!!! fall-family-portrait,-colorado-photographersAva-leading-lines-fallnica-clos-up-black-and-whitefamily-candid-park-fallsisters,-black-and-white,-portrait-photographyfamily-portrait-pacione-texas

Getting the Smile

When Matt and I photograph portraits, I am the main person behind the camera, but almost always, Matt is with me holding reflector, and most importantly, getting the smile. I call him “the kid charmer” because he has a unique gift for being able to warm the coldest shoulders and pull out the shyest kids form behind legs. So, naturally, I had to share this picture taken of him at a family reunion this summer (photo by Peter Schwepker), trying to help my grandpa “get the smile” from our own children.

Don’t worry, he doesn’t normally look this funny.matt-and-grandpa

My New Lens

Last night my new lens arrived, the 70-200 2.8 IS II. I am really excited about it because it’s predecessor is my favorite lens, and this ones is supposed to be even better. So this morning I pulled it out and captured this cute moments between my two daughters, Liana and Jadyn. I’ll be using this one a lot over Thanksgiving break! Jadyn-and-Liana

Family Portraits at Memorial Park

This weekend had absolutely stunning weather, and so Saturday evening was the perfect time for some last weeks of autumn family portraits at Memorial Park.

Sometimes the best photos come after you stop asking the kids to smile at the camera, like this one!  What cute kids!





Boys and sticks…they are just meant for each other.
