Paige + Cory | Colorado Springs Photography

I won't share too many because I don't want to spoil all of the holiday card fun but they're just too stinkin' cute to skip over. Paige and Cory spent the last few years calling Colorado Springs home and while I only met Paige at the very end of their stay here it didn't take long to figure out that she is just sweet as pie. They get to call Fort Collins home now and then they'll be off to the next place when Cory's work calls him elsewhere. It never siezes to amaze me how families who serve in the military choose over and over again to be playable, make new friends, call new cities home and love each other so much that their people truly are their one constant home. I respect it, love it and learn a little something each time I get to be around people with hearts like that. So thankful for the choices this couple makes in order to help our families live the way we live. Paige and Cory + Breck, I loved my afternoon with you! You're so joyful and refreshing. I hope this isn't the last time that I get to photograph your lives. xx- karen

Liles Family | Phoenix Family Photographer

When you run a home with four boys, well five, life is busy the volume is turned up, laughter runs rampant and oh man is it fun?! Fallon is one of those who I knew of for years and had met several times at this or that but we never made the time to be intentional with one on one time. That being said, she is also one of those that I get super excited to see each time I know we're going to be at the same function. She's always smiling, she's not afraid of being honest and she's a blast- especially after a drink or two. This girl and her handsome guy, Chris are raising these boys to be all of that. Fun and boisterous but also totally having one anothers backs. In our 45 mintues together I saw the boys laugh, tease, poke and prod as they should and comfort one another. Where there is a bouncing boy who is compassionate and loving there are two parents earning an extra special spot in heaven one day. Thanks so much for letting me take these photos this year. Love you guys! xx-karen

Brecken + Justin | Phoenix, AZ Maternity Photography

I mean. I don't even have to say anything, just dig in. Brecken is stunning in every way... She literally spends more time giggling around Justin than not. To validate, Justin actually is funny and in that unexpected dry way that really gets you. He is such a protector of his sweet family- and this little man in Brecken's belly, Finley, is going to be such a prince. I cannot wait to adventure through some of this parenting life with the Blades.  Salt of the earth... 

Mike + Jennifer | Phoenix, AZ Family Photography

I met this more than precious family, oh three or four years ago! Time flies, I can't be sure... but I know that I adore every-single-member of this family. They're kind hearted, tender spirited and full of joy. 

I was Mike and Jennifer's wedding photographer at their residence just a few blocks from where I grew up and I left feeling like I was part of the family. They've added one little guy on and man, is he just so adorable! I love seeing post updates and getting to hear about what's new when I see them. So thankful for the people that I am lucky enough to meet in this photography journey and even more so when I get to tag along, documenting pieces of their stories. xx- karen
