Family Time

Something new I tried this year. Family Portrait “mini sessions”. I thought it would be a good way to introduce new customers to my studio and also provide quick and easy sessions for families that want to keep time and cost down. Each session was only 30 minutes long and prices started at $50 for a complete package. It turned out to be a great success  and I hope to be doing another one this coming spring (around Mother’s Day). Everyone loved the new winter background.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Here are 2 beautiful sisters I just photographed. Both serious soccer players. One silly, one sweet.

The Family That Almost Got Away!

I don’t often goof up with scheduling but this was one of those major mind erase moments. Michelle (Mom) and I had been in touch over the last several weeks trying to coordinate a mutually convenient time to take her family’s portrait. We were going back and forth and then finally came up with a date. But the night before the shoot Michelle had to cancel because 2 out of the 4 family members were sick. So we re-scheduled for the following weekend. In my mind I was all set for the Sunday of the following weekend. Great. Nothing doing that day. Had all the time in the world to clean and set up the studio and photograph Michelle’s family. But, when the family unexpectedly showed up on Saturday I realized I committed a major faux pax. I was just about to jump into the shower and then drive my daughter to her ballet performance when I saw them approaching the front door. Michelle’s family had made a special trip to Denver, were all dressed to the nines, and Michelle had just gotten her hair done.  What to do, what to do. The shower would have to wait.  I was a  little embarrassed to say the least but they were so gracious and accommodating. Which was good because I felt frazzled enough as it was. They patiently waited as I set up the studio lights, metered the lighting and arranged the shooting area. I was able to get in about 15 minutes of shooting before I was interrupted by my daughter to take her to her performance. Luckily, they were rehearsing for an hour or so before the performance and then they had to change and do make-up. So I had about an hour and a half between the time I dropped my daughter off and the time the performance started (which I really did not want to miss). Never mind planning to photograph the rehearsal. That wasn’t going to happen at this point. My first commitment was to the family. I quickly dashed out and drove my daughter to Colorado Ballet while the family went to the local coffee shop to kill some time (and eat sugary cookies which really was not a good idea). We reconvened about 30 minutes later and, thanks to their enduring patience and good natured-ness, were able to get some really nice shots. Not everything goes smoothly in this business – in fact, rarely does! Taking things in stride, thinking on your feet, remaining calm and optimistic, and being flexible are all important to your success in this line of work (and in life, for that matter!)







Lasting Love

It can happen. 42 years and still in love.




Jacob’s Dance Class

My son, Jacob Taylor, is a teacher at Colorado Ballet and last week I had the wonderful opportunity to observe and photograph some of his classes. I had never seen him teach before  and, I must say, I was most impressed with how he conducted his classes. His combination of technical expertise,  clear and concise communication, attention and feedback to each and every student and his genuine  love and caring of his students  was beyond anything I could have ever imagined he would achieve. Bravo to you, my son.



I am now the proud parent of a college grad!! This past weekend I flew to Indiana where my son Jacob graduated from (I’m not kidding) The Jacob’s School of Music at Indiana University. It’s very hard to believe that 4 years have gone by since I first dropped him off.



Ballet in Bloomington

I just got back from visiting my son in Bloomington, Indiana. He is a senior in The Jacob’s School of Music at IU and has been studying ballet there the last 4 years. He will be graduating soon and so this last performance was very special to me. I was incredibly proud of my son who persevered the ups and downs of the last 4 years to get to this point. I was incredibly happy to see him up there smiling and enjoying himself. I was also proud of all the other seniors that had started out with my son as freshmen and reached this level of accomplishment. I think a number of us parents feel this way – a sort of sentimental/surrogate attachment to all the children that made the same journey at the same time as our own child. OK – so without getting to sappy (I’m saving that for graduation) here are some of the moments from my trip.

Susana and Thomas’ Family

I was so pleased and excited when Susana e-mailed me to tell me her new little baby had arrived and asked if I could come over to take pictures. Baby Anna had been born 2 weeks earlier and this was the perfect time to take photos. It was not that many years ago when I had been the photographer at Susana and Thomas’ wedding. And now, only a few years later they were blessed with 2 beautiful children – Alexander, 2 years old, and Anna, 2 weeks old!. I was so happy to be able to still be a part of this beautiful family.
