When my good friend and fellow photographer John of John Payne Studios asked me to come to Colorado and take his family pictures, I jumped at the chance. I love Colorado – I went to school in Boulder and spent many vacations on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. My husband I flew out to Denver to spend a long weekend with this adorable family of three in their new home. I’d always wanted to take candid, unposed pictures of family in their own space and these three were the perfect subjects. They jumped on the bed, played airplane and hide and seek and were just silly in general. But for all the fun we had, there is one theme that shines through these images: family. This is what a family looks like. This is what togetherness looks like. This is what love looks like. It looks like a family.
Happy Thanksgiving from this family (and mine) to yours!!
