beth + joe

As I photographed Beth and Joe; I couldn't help but fall in love with the way they were together. Beth was blissful and calm while Joe was doting and silly. These characteristics I know will be a testament to their parenting of this sweet baby. I'm so happy to know this mama personally and excited to watch her journey into motherhood. 

Congratulations Beth and Joe on the grandest of adventures!

Most summers growing up, my family and I would make the trip to Gunnison, Colorado. We'd rent cabins near Powderhorn and come into Gunnison on the Fourth of July. Whether we were fishing, hiking or jeeping around; we'd always make a trip to Lake City and the San Juan Soda Co. We'd enjoy scoops and scoops and scoops of ice cream. 

Well like my family the Stephens; Brandon, Kendra and young Blakeley have the same idea. They vacation and adventure around in beautiful Lake City every summer. 

I hope you all will stop by the San Juan Soda Co. for Colorado's best ice cream. I hope the Stephens get to enjoy many more beautiful Colorado summers. But mostly, I hope Blakeley gets to dance every summer barefoot in the creeks.

Last Saturday little Makena celebrated her first birthday! She is so sweet, she is so beautiful and most importantly she is so loved. With a birthday fit for a princess, it was only natural that there would be a tear or two... Okay Makena... it's your birthday, and you can cry if you want too.            

 After all, thats just real life.
