I recently went on vacation to Colorado with my family and decided to do family portraits while we were there. Since I wanted to be in the photos too I started looking online to find a photographer that could capture some beautiful portraits and candid moments for us in the mountains around Denver, CO. I was so happy when I stumbled upon Virginia Stiles Photography. I knew from her beautiful portfolio on her website that she was the one so I went ahead and booked the session.
As soon as we confirmed the date I starting planning my family’s wardrobe. Being a photographer myself I knew that wardrobe could make or break the photos so I gathered some pieces we had already, and shopped for a few more items to complete the look. I put together this “what to wear” board to make sure the whole look would tie together nicely. After sending my wardrobe ideas to Virginia for her opinion, she found a beautiful quilt for us to use in some of the photos.
The session was wonderful and the photos turned out better then I could have imagined. I’m so thankful for finding Virginia and for her capturing this beautiful time for us. I am going to treasure the photos forever.
If you haven’t invested in a family session with a professional photographer lately, take the time to book one. In life we can’t turn back the clock, but we can freeze the precious moments and capture the magic of time through family pictures; pictures that one day our children will be enjoying as they take a glimpse into the past.
