The S family planned their Thanksgiving weekend in Denver and it was time to get some updated family photography. We planned to meet at Evergreen Lakehouse and the weather was to be mid 50’s, Perfect! Well, that morning, the snow clouds started rolling in and so did the cold temperatures. They also informed me how “unphotogenic” they were.  I couldn’t beleive it because as a photographer, that is what everyone says that about themselves. People think I am looking for something specific.  But really, I want to capture them and the essentce of their family. This family was no exception! And looking at these photos, I can say that we didn’t get  shots of an “unphotogenic” family. Not nearly! And they didn’t even look like they were freezing…which they were. They are delightful people and I am happy to have captured these images for them to cherish forever. Thank you to the S. Family, you are all awesome! And a big Thanks to Laura S. for the refferral!

A vintage themed wedding with pale pink accents took place at the historic Lumber Baron Inn in Denver. This Bed and Breakfast was the perfect venue for this couples wedding. As the rain poured on Colorado, the the couple braced themselves with an alternate plan for their garden wedding. Everyone rushed around to placed the chairs in the parlor for the guests. The warmth and charm of the vintage mansion accented the classic tuxes of the groomsmen and classic pink and black bridesmaids dresses.

Its a tricky day when rain presents! Some say rain is meant to be good luck on your wedding day. I would like to think that this rain has showered the best of luck on Cassandra and Justin’s marriage!
Congratulations you two! Enjoy the Sneak Peek.

Ellis Ranch is a wonderful wedding venue in Loveland, especially for Samantha and Tran’s country themed wedding! With boots, cowboy and cowgirl hats (Cowboy Up Hatters), their own beautiful horses brought to carry in the groomsmen, horse and carriage to carry the bride to her groom, and a huge bridal party to top it off! This couple planned a huge wedding and with so many details and charm.

With a loving to see them through their day, they said their “I dos”. Congratualations Samantha and Tran! Enjoy your Sneak Peek!

It’s that time of the year, changing colors, warm clothes, cool-crisp air, and trips to Starbucks for Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Oh wait! That was all about what I like during the Fall. Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year!!! As a professional portrait photographer, I LOVE when families want to bundle up and get outside in the morning for Fall Family photography. The colors of the leaves contrasted with green grass, make the PER-FECT family photo. Here in Denver, we have a vast amount of landscape to pick from too.

Every year, AND I mean EVERY year, families miss the perfect time for Fall photos. My clients call Lori J Photography in December and rush to get pictures in the FRIGID December snow, rush the family off to a photography session, rush print their Holiday cards, RUSH, RUSH, RUSH!  I feel their sense of urgency! Lets face it, you have a hard job as parents and Holiday cards probably do not enter your mind until Thanksgiving. By then, it’s cold, you are swamped with family gatherings, holiday shopping, baking, and keeping the kids occupied inside. So instead, you settle for a general holiday card just to say hello, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.

Be on top of it this year. Take a moment to evaluate what you desire in your family portrait. Let Lori J Photography take care of your photographs and your holiday cards and enhance your family look.

Your photography session is customized to your families personality and interests. It’s not just a picture! Anyone can take a picture. Family portrait photography is about capturing a moment in time and capturing the essence of your family. This year invest in more than just a picture. Invest in an experience!

Take a look at some other family sessions that I have blogged on in the past.

The Rocky Mountains, a picture perfect landscape, why not throw a wedding? Well I was able to do this over the summer. While camping, I found the most pristine location to photograph the picture perfect wedding. The lush landscape provided yellow wild flowers, green grass, the mountain view, and a few clouds to role through the big, blue sky. The day was perfect and we nearly missed a rainstorm.  The bride and groom were fabulous!

This Summer has been a blast! I have spent so much time outdoors snapping away with my camera. I set some time aside to host the Furry Friends Mini Photography sessions in June of this year. It was so much fun, I really love dogs and felt that this project was important. This year was especially sad as many of my friends had their beloved pets pass away and really wished they had gotten some images to capture their pooch so they could cherish there pooch just they way they were in their final days. I know that generally people don’t think to get a photographer for their pets, however, a pet is part of the family. These moments are memories that can be cherished for a lifetime. You can’t deny these furry friends from my photography shoot from bringing a smile to your face. 
I had two adorable dogs in round two of the Furry Friends Mini Photography Sessions in Denver, Seamus and Adelaide. Check out the playful dogs below. I was told they enjoyed their toys when they got home from our session. I got one cell phone photo with a thank you from Seamus, a thank you card from Adelaide with a follow-up photo of the demolished dog toy (She ate the ears off first). But man these pups sure know how to say thank you! On that note, I have to say a big THANK YOU to my doggie goodie bag sponsor, Green Buddies USA, off Colfax, they supplied heathy treats for the Furry Friend Mini Session. 
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
If you are intersted in being a part of next years Furry Friends Mini Sessions, please email and I will add you to my newsletter distribution.
