Emile is 1 1/2 weeks old, and such a beautiful baby! We took these photos at his home in Woodland Park. I loved his wrinkled little brow and his thoughtful eyes.
Nicholina and Brett got married in May in Riviera Maya. Then they had a wedding reception in Denver at Lodo’s for their friends and family who could not make it.
My father, Peter Schwepker came and photographed with me as he was in town for the weekend.

Nikki and Adam got married this Saturday at Terrace Gardens in Denver, Colorado. It was a beautiful day and an even more beautiful wedding. While it was an Indian ceremony, there were lots of pieces of Adam’s irish heritage incorporated into it including a bagpiper and Irish dancers. It was such a beautiful blending of cultures!
This spot at Terrace Gardens was so beautiful! I loved the way they decorated it in orange and pink banners.
One of the traditions in an Indian ceremony is for the the bride and groom to both search for a ring, and whoever finds it most often is said to have the power in the relationship. You can see how badly they both wanted it!!!
Adam’s henna was very personalized.
This little girl was irresistible!
Two weeks ago we went to the sand dunes with the kids and with my sister and her family. It was so beautiful! The water was wonderfully warm and the sun shining!
We originally thought maybe you could sled down the sand hills, but at least on the small ones, that was only possible with a bit of Matt energy!
My brother in law shot this photo of Matt and I.
Then, this weekend we got to drive to 11 mile canyon for some good old tent camping. We had SUCH a good time! It is great having the kids old enough to all participate in the camping experience! We did some hiking, some “river rafting,” (i.e. blow up Dora and Spiderman rafts), some marshmallow roasting and some rock climbing, all just under two hours from our front door!
Liana made it about 4 feet off the ground before becoming very frightened. Later on, however, she was very proud to tell everyone “I made it almost all the way to the top!”
Other than her brief stint in the water, (she is NOT a water dog), Trin was a very happy puppy on our trip!

Our kids loved seeing the embers glowing on the end of their roasting sticks.
Bill and Jocelyn are such a fun couple! They have so much love for each other, for their families and for God. Their entire wedding was a time of joy for everyone there!
Jocelyn got ready at her home in Colorado Springs. Here her dad walked her down the stairs followed by one of her sisters and other bridesmaids.
I loved the flow of the veil in this shot of Jocelyn doing a last mirror check.
Then it was off to the church at Woodmoor in Monument, Colorado.
Bill was all emotion during the wedding ceremony. His look here at Jocelyn tells it all.
The couple took communion together during the ceremony.
Then away in the car for a quick portrait session.
The reception was at the officer’s Club at the Air Force Academy.
In the middle of the night Jocelyn’s mom pulled Bill aside. I couldn’t hear them, but you could tell it was something pretty special.

Bill turned out to be quite the dancer!
