I specialize in natural, non-traditional portraits of children (generally ages 0-2). I strive to capture babies as they are in real life and avoid contrived, cookie-cutter, prop-heavy shots. This means an organic pose-free portrait shoot where I take my cues from the little one and see how our time together unfolds. I shoot either in my home, my client’s home or a favorite outdoor spot. If you see the same little faces appear in my work it is because I am lucky enough to work with my portrait clients year after year as their families grow. It is one of the great delights of my life. Email me if you are interested in photographs of your little one(s) and we will create the perfect package.

I work out of my home studio in Lafayette, Colorado. We renovated the house top to bottom and re-landscaped every inch. I love working from home. People ask me if I have hard time setting boundaries with clients coming in and out. My business is an extension of my heart and I like to keep everything I love very close. I love to putter in the garden in between shoots, to work in my pjs, to make green juice for my clients that are feeling tired and overwhelmed, to take naps whenever I can squeeze them in and to take mid-day jaunts on the open-space trails with my cattle dogs. I have gypsy in my blood so I’m not sure how long we’ll stay, but for now I’m perfectly happy. Please come for a visit. I would love to share a cup of tea and hear some of your story.






Cat & Greg’s Sarasota, FL Wedding by Recherché Photography is Featured in The Knot!

We are sooooo excited & flattered to be promoted in the Florida edition of The Knot as a featured wedding. Not surprised though. Just because Cat & Greg’s Sarasota Great-Gatsy-styled event was hands down one of the most sexy, sublime and sophisticated weddings of all time. Cat is a long time friend, an artist, a photographer, a magazine editor and a designer. So of course her wedding rocked the house. All I did was show up and push the button a few times! 😉 Dying to see more images of their wedding? Click here to see the blog post!
