What a pretty mama and daughter!~ Toddler and family photography~ Lyons, Colorado

Good God…I get to photograph some pretty sweet little kiddos!  When you look at little Edyn’s eyes…all you can say is “wowza!”  We had a great time walking along the St. Vrain River in Lyons!  My mom lives there– so it is a bit of a 2nd home for me– and I have been loving using it as a perfect photo spot in between Denver and my Northern Colorado peeps!  Lyons seriously has some fantastic places to do my style of family and kiddo shoots– the perfect blend of playing and photojournalism…but great natural backdrops and fun alleyways for a bit of “posed” portraits (as much as I do anyway!).  After Edyn was doing such a great job, we decided she deserve some Ice Cream!  Off to the local Parlour on Main Street– made for some fun candids for sure! 😉

The only drawback from the river/campground area in the summer is the darn tents and trashcans in the background!  Urgh!  I typically would probably not even deliver images with stuff like that in the background..but I thought some of them were some cute…I just had to!  Maybe I can do something about them anyway….we’ll see!

Thank you Meredith and Edyn (and Sue!) for letting me spend the morning with you beautiful ladies, and get to know Edyn a bit now that she is older!  She is such a stinkin’ cute 3-year old little lady!

I think this one is my favorite….Mom looks so pretty and happy…and it is just a quintessential look for a 3-year old– so realistic!


Ordering Ice Cream!
