Ann and Jim’s Lovely Boulder, Colorado Backyard Wedding

Eleven years later I am still in love with weddings. I love the romantic destination weddings, I love the decadent weddings dripping in mouth-watering details, and I love simple quiet backyard weddings. I am always a little startled to be allowed into a family’s home hours before such a personal event takes place and to mingle with a handful of the closest friends and family to observe and take part in a set of promises a family makes to one another.

Thank you, Ann & Jim & Molly & Patrick for letting me be a part of your special day! I hope you had a wonderful family honeymoon at Disney!!! 011-042RoanJenkinsWED

Mikey Hefner’s First Professional Photo Baby Portrait Session

Mikey is the very lucky son of a couple of my favorite clients in all the world, Allison & Christopher Hefner. I photographed their wedding at Beaver Creek Chapel & The Lodge at Vail 5 years ago this fall. And this week they did me the honor of allowing me to photograph their 5 week old newborn. He is already a little charmer.   11HefnerPOR5wk-2 16HefnerPOR5wk-2 17HefnerPOR5wk-2 18HefnerPOR5wk 22HefnerPOR5wk-219HefnerPOR5wk 20HefnerPOR5wk  26HefnerPOR5wk 28HefnerPOR5wk-2 32HefnerPOR5wk 33HefnerPOR5wk-2 35HefnerPOR5wk-2 37HefnerPOR5wk Alli had the great foresight to bring along both of their baby blankets!49HefnerPOR5wk

Alli had no intention of having HER photo taken during this photo shoot. We all know how mommies feel for about 5-10 years after having babies, but we ALSO know how strongly I feel about capturing a few gorgeous images of the moms. You are more beautiful than you realize. Trust your husband, your mother, your friends and your photographer!! 🙂 These images will be TREASURED by your children, I promise you. 07HefnerPOR5wk-2
