Who Doesn't Love A Baby Shower?

I had the pleasure of shooting a baby shower this past weekend, and what a precious event it was! There were countless supportive women in attendance, beautiful heartfelt words of wisdom and encouragement spoken, and many happy-tears shed. Baby Gilbert will undoubtedly be welcomed into the world with immense love! Here are a few photos we captured of a beautiful day in Old Colorado City at The Loft Collective.

J&R Adventure: Hiking at Garden of the Gods!

One of my favorite places to go in Colorado Springs since I was a little kid is Garden of the Gods! Back story: I grew up in Chicago but would come here to the Springs with my family to visit my Great Aunt Sally every few years. Colorado Springs holds so many happy childhood memories: feeding giraffes at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the North Pole, Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, and even brunch at the Broadmoor. I'm so blessed to be living here now! So, John and I took advantage of the beauty of our new home town and visited Garden of the Gods. Of course, Arroyo, our best and most favorite subject, came along for the ride. Enjoy the photos! (Click on any photo to enlarge)

We will be creating a nature & travel photography section of our website soon, but until then, check out our wedding & engagement photo gallery or our family photo gallery for more inspiration!
