Families & Maternity

Joy-filled mountain family photography curated with a touch of whimsy Denver, Colorado


Mountain Denver Colorado Family Photography

We believe time with family should be full of intimate snuggles, endless giggles, and too much fun. Don't we all wish every day went by a little slower so we could savor that sweet moment with your baby fresh out of the bath or toddler cracking jokes or teenager pouring their heart out to you in confident trust?

We believe our memories should be captured and cherished. Being a mother ourselves we understand how fleeting moments are but we so blessed to have this gift to help these moments become memories with a photograph. We are so excited to meet your family and learn your story. We hope you to be able to capture a piece of your lives together here in Denver, Colorado or wherever your family lives take you.

Adventure Lover

We adore new experiences and meeting new people. So, meeting you and hearing your love story is joy enough for us in this job. But getting to have adventures in new places and capturing the love of a family is icing on the cake for these girls’ hearts.


We have almost a decade of experience in the wedding industry and as a photographer. We’ve worked through almost every wedding day nightmare you can imagine.

We have also endured a number of difficulties in my personal life, so I am able to be kind, generous and empathic towards tough things that occur leading up to or on your photo shoot day.


We are able to capture bright, epic sunsets, low-lighting situations and a number of other unconventional lighting scenarios that require careful expertise behind the camera.

We’ve taken classes with some of the top wedding photographers. We’ve learned some amazing tricks of the trade from them all as well as many valuable lessons.


We are passionate about relationships that are full of love and commitment.

You can be real with us. No need to put on fake faces; its our job to help you be you in front of the camera and capture who you are--not some artificial, falsely happy magazine pose.

Intimate Experience

We book a limited amount of family photography sessions per month. Our work with you will be personal and intimate.


   We are mamas, and if you are a parent yourself or have watched one closely, you may have noticed that we can be quite good at multi-tasking. Being mothers has helped us become a better photographer because we can manage numerous things happening at once. We are able to stay relaxed when things go wrong (which they sometimes do) and can help you stay calm and collected as well.

Planning + Flow

Emmy enjoys intentionally planning, but she has also learned the art of rolling with unexpected changes and finding beauty in those moments. She will work together with your family to plan the photo side of things to have as a guideline, but on the day of, we’ll find and capture beauty in the day even if circumstances mean straying from the plan.
