Cecilia and Tom’s engagement session took place at the Lost Gulch Lookout in Boulder, Colorado, on a beautiful winter afternoon. It is usually difficult to pick a day for a winter session because the weather is so unpredictable, however that day in the Rocky Mountains was extraordinarily warm and beautiful. Consequently we spent the session taking in the breathtaking scenery and enjoying the sun. My couple loves the outdoors, and moved to Colorado to be closer to nature.
Cecilia and Tom will get married on September 23rd, 2017 at Camp Hale near Vale and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding!
Until then please enjoy their pictures!

Carrie and Eric’s wedding was an amazingly well planned event, in part due to Carrie’s beautiful sense of style and her very sharp and detail oriented mind. From the decorations to the bridesmaids shoes, this wedding was a delight to the eye.
It was a pleasure to photograph this beautiful event, hand crafted with all the love and attention that Carrie brings into everything she touches.
Congratulations to my lovely couple! Can’t wait to show you the rest of the pictures!

Megan and Brian got married on a sunny afternoon in Westminster, Colorado. For this beautiful wedding, Megan chose purple and burned orange for her colors and everything from the dresses to the table centerpieces looked absolutely stunning. The highlight of the wedding was with the first dance, a breathtaking performance by the groom and bride followed by a medley of flash mob dancing that left everyone cheering!
Congratulations to my beautiful, fierce, charismatic Megan and my oh so funny groom, Brian, who by the way can dance like none’s business!
I can’t wait to share your wedding pictures with you!

Julia and Isaac wanted their wedding to be bare footed, laid back, in a family friendly space. It was an intimate wedding where children played on the little sandy beach on the lakefront, where adults ate on the patio, under strings of light, before heading the gazebo and dance the night away. Congratulations to this beautiful couple for a truly splendid day!

The last two weeks have been packed with a short trip to Disney, awesome sights, amazing churches and cliffs and more oceans.
We first went to Westvleteren, a Trappist brewery in Belgium and is one of the 6 lefts in the world. You can only by the beer at the brewery, it is considered one of the best in the world….it is simply delicious <3
Next we went to Disney and enjoyed rides and princesses and sent Brian back to America. The girls an I drove back home, making a quick stop to the Chateau de Chantilly, a truly amazing place and horse back riding capital of Europe.
We then headed to Mers les Bains, a seaside town with magnificent houses, a living museum of the Art deco era. I will have more pictures in my next blog 🙂
The girls are now well traveled and are picking up on the culture, food and language. They love their grand parents (especially pay on his bike and many with her cats) and they love their cousins.
We have many images to share, here is a select few!
Next blog will be up soon and then…Paris…the city of love, food and fashion <3
After a 5 hours drive we made it to the North of France, the “Ch’ti” region, now called Les Hauts de France, where I was born. On the way we stopped at Omaha beach. It was beautiful and serene, a stopping point for many tourists on their way to the Mont Saint Michel and the South.
After Omaha Beach, the Pont de Normandie, a few pictures of us in Saint Quentin, my family, my village. A quick peak of the building where I went to elementary school, the building where I used to do summer camp and the Temple where Brian and I got married (it was a fake marriage, we were already married in Texas). A few pictures of my village, the church, and finally my sisters and nieces.
And apparently in all this we still managed to find a farm, I am finding that I love taking pictures of all those adorable farm animals <3
Just a few words and many pictures to summarize our last day in Cherbourg : the ocean, the farm, the kids, it is with heavy hearts that we said good by to my brother and his wife, my nephew and my niece and moved on to new adventures on our way to the North…To be continued.
When I was a little girl I used to go camping with my family for 3 weeks every summer in Normandy. Since then I have travelled and discovered many beautiful places but I have never forgotten about this camping place and “La Vallee du Lude in particular”. I have talked about it to Brian, I have talked have about coming back and finding this wonderful place again. La Vallee du Lude is a small path in the tiny town of Carolles that opens up, between two lush valleys, to a pebbled beach. This place was always a source of endless games with my two brothers (my sisters were too little to play with us). This place was my Narnia, my escape to magical kingdoms, my base for unbridled playful creation.
Luckily my brother now lives two hours away from it.
Imagine my excitement when, yesterday morning, Brian, the girls and I drove to Granville and then Carolles and then la Vallee du Lude. Imagine how I felt walking down this same valley where I have spent countless hours as a kid, playing in the pebbles. And imagine my joy when my kids did the exact same thing, tottering around the rocks, collecting sea snails, exclaiming over the beauty of the place.
The last few days have been full of the ocean, the waves, the sand and the pebbles. It has been full of my family and talks about the future, near and far. Finally it has been full of my girls bonding with this family. Because in spite of everything, my girls are half French and I am trying so hard to wake their Frenchness inside <3
During this part of the trip we also visited “La citee de la Mer” in Cherbourg, L’Abbaye des moines Trappistes, Le nez de Jobourg, the coast, a biscuiterie, a cheese restaurant, the beach, Granville, the beach, the beach <3
France is all about food. Therefore on the following day, after messing around with the four-wheeler, we went to the grocery store where Brian found his beer and I found my Cote d’Or Chocolat. We then went out to the town where I found a pointing Napoleon wearing the yellow jersey to my greatest entertainment. (dork)
We also entered a poisonnerie and took pictures. Two bakeries and took pictures. I took pictures of beer and bread and cake etc. etc. Even Mignon le chat loves food so I took pictures of him too 🙂
I should summarized : I took a lot of pictures of food in general.
France is also all about the Tour de France and we were lucky enough to see the Cherbourg etape today. My dad had decided to carry the American flag I had gifted him last Christmas and apparently a journaliste thought that it was unique enough to interview us for the local radio. We saw the racers and I even managed to get a good shot of Peter Sagan! Super duper cool.
