Betty + Eric's Colorado Memories

Betty and Eric are high school sweethearts and it's so easy to see that they have been together forever. They are so comfortable with each other and not afraid to get a little close and romantic as well as a bit silly.  Posing them was a breeze as they just melted into each other's arms. 

They are just like two puzzle pieces - different, but fit together perfectly! We had such a good time exploring Garden of the Gods. They are traveling from Houston for work and fun and I wanted to show them my favorite part of Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods! We had fun exploring and Betty and I had a chance to catch up! We are both ISU Class of 2007 with a bachelor's degree in International Business (neither of us doing much International Business today!). 

We met super early at 6:30 am for these photos as this was the only time they could squeeze in a photo session! I absolutely love morning sessions - the calm and the morning light is so yummy. It is so so so worth it!

The Acello Crew

Jen and I have known each other since high school and even share the same birthday. If you told me back then she has 6 kids UNDER 9, I would have never believed you. I gotta say, her and her hubby BJ are doing something right because ALL the kiddos were absolutely delightful and we all had a blast during their session. 

Since they live close to Lake Michigan (and natural water is hard to come by in Colorado), we decided a beach session would be perfect. We took a few photos at the top before heading down by the water. Of course, It wasn't long before the kids were fully submerged in the lake, splashing and enjoying each other. I loved that the parents didn't care as it made for super fun photos and natural smiles! A session is not only a time to capture memories, but a time ACTUALLY make them :)! I am sure none of these kids will ever forget swimming with their "nice clothes" on. The water freed them to be the crazy goofy kiddos that they are. 

Each kiddo has such a unique personality and through out the session I could feel the comfort and belongingness they all share. They are so lucky to have each other.  Thank you Jen for the wonderful honor of photographing your gorgeous family!!!
