Marti and Jeremy's Sun-soaked Autumn Wedding https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2015/10/marti-and-jeremys-sun-soaked-autumn-wedding When Marti asked me to photograph her wedding, I was hesitant. I'd only done a couple courthouse weddings before and wasn't sure I wanted to take the leap. But then she explained that they weren't looking for traditional wedding pictures, with checklists of shots to capture. In fact, they didn't want any posed photographs at all. They just asked that I be in the moment with them and help tell the story. Well, that was something I couldn't pass up. I want very much, with my photography, to be able to do just that - tell the story. Let the people and the mood and the light guide me, so that what you see gives you a pretty good idea what it was like to be there, from my creative perspective. This lovely day with Marti and Jeremy and their friends and family was a wonderful opportunity to explore that. Thank you, Marti and Jeremy, for a beautiful experience. Wishing you much love and happiness!

I met this lovely family in a small park in the late fall. You'd think it wasn't the best time of year for outdoor portraits, but there's something about the color, or lack thereof, of the landscape that really makes the family pop.

Denver is such a beautiful, visually stimulating place, and my family and I often go downtown to just look around and enjoy the view (and take pictures, of course.) So I was really excited that this gang agreed on this location for our shoot. I just loved this urban portrait session with my friends and our city.

First up: Jake, audiobook narrator extraordinaire with whom I've worked for many years.

Heather and Family https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2014/8/heather-and-family After a less-than-stellar start to my Monday last week (which included dropping my phone from one level of my house to the next, shattering it), and a long day in the recording booth with vampires, werewolves, and teen angst, it was so lovely to spend an hour with my old friend, Heather, and her family. Heather and I were friends in high school and have seen each other only a couple times since then, so this was a fun little glimpse into her life now. I must say, I was a little in awe. Her home and her family are just beautiful, and it was a pleasure to be invited into it all for a moment. And on top of it all...a horse!

Kristina and Richard https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2014/6/kristina-and-richard Hello, again! Though I've happily been shooting away for the past several months, between the full-time job narrating audio books, new shoots and edits, and my lovely family, I've completely neglected this blog. But I'm back - with happy news! Kristina and Richard got married! And I actually got the nerve up to photograph it. My first wedding! I have been extremely reluctant until now to say yes to such a task, largely because of fear. It's such an important day! What if something goes wrong? What if I forget something, lose something, break something, trip over something, sweat profusely? That fear has even provoked me, more than once, to say that ridiculous word, "never." So, needless to say, when asked in the past if I could photograph someone's wedding, my answer has been, "Thank you. No." But this time, it was just time to say, "yes."

I've known Kristina for quite some time and was able to be frank with her about my feelings. We met for a beer and a chat, and once she gave me the details about the small ceremony, I even started to get excited! A courthouse wedding - perfect!

Kristina and Richard got married on a perfect late-spring afternoon in the Supreme Court Courtroom in a beautiful new building here in Denver. I can't thank them enough for trusting me with this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations, Kristina and Richard! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!

We broke it down into just about every family subset you could think of.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

And there were so many more! Thanks Ryan, and your big, beautiful family.

'Tis the Season! https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/tis-the-season I got into the holiday spirit early this year, and have been having fun documenting it with photos. In late October, I was going through some of my photos from last year and came across this one of my stepson.

 

 

Well, it inspired me. Now I knew what I wanted to do for our holiday cards this year. All I needed was some snow. It has snowed as early as September here in Denver before, but this year our beautiful autumn seemed to linger longer than usual. I started to think we were going to need to head to the hills, but finally in late November, we got it! Quickly, before it melted, I gathered the troops, bundled 'em up, and started shooting.

First, the group shot. Everyone was a little cold (and a little cranky, honestly) so we were quick about it. But we got one!


 

Then, time for the fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mark and I had the hard part, but after a few hilarious failed attempts at getting the shot, some editing, and designing, it was a wrap!

 

 

Now, from the warmth of my home, I'm wishing you all a very Merry Everything!

Jayne and Family https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/jayne-and-family Jayne asked me to come to her house in late November on a day that her family would all be gathered for an early Thanksgiving celebration. It also happened to be a day when our beloved Denver Broncos would be playing a little football game...against the Patriots. It was quite cold out, but everyone gathered their strength (and their team spirit!), and we headed into Jayne's beautiful backyard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then back inside the warm, cozy house.

Thank you to Jayne and her family!

Wendy and Family https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/wendy-and-family I've worked with Wendy since I started narrating at Talking Books almost 19 years ago! Our paths don't cross too often, though, and I haven't had much chance to get to know her over the years. So it was very nice to be invited to her home for a family photo session and have the opportunity to meet her boys and their girlfriends - and the pups, of course!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Wendy, David, Laurin, Mitchell, Stefanie, and Andrew!

Robin and Family https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/robin-and-family I met Robin and her family at Cheesman Park last weekend in October. After shooting families of no more than four for a while, the challenge for me this time was the larger group of seven. The bigger the group, the more I have to focus on the basics (like making sure everyone is in the frame and in view). There seems less room for spontaneity and play. I find, though, that if you set up the shot as best you can, then just keep shooting, you're bound to capture both those rare moments when everyone is facing the camera with eyes wide open, as well as some fun little moments in between.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then, of course, you can always break it down into smaller groups and suggest they throw things!

Jane, Jon, and Elena https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/jane-jon-and-elena I've know Jane and Jon for over 17 years now, and met Elena when she was just days old. I was thrilled when they took me up on my Facebook offer. Elena, being a teenager, was less thrilled about the whole family photo shoot thing, so we gave her some time to warm up to the idea and headed over to check out their neighbors' super cool backyard.

 

 

 

Then back to their place. She was ready to go! And, wow, she relaxed right into it.

 

 

I loved watching them interact with each other.

 

 

Thank you so much, Jane, Jon, and Elena!

I met Hendry, Lilly, and Tallulah at Rosamund Park on a beautiful fall day near the end of October. What a lovely family. We spent an hour or so walking around the park, getting to know each other a little, dodging lacrosse players, playing in the leaves...

 

and chasing this adorable little girl around.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Hendry, Lilly, and Tallulah!

Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare 7th Anniversary Runway Show https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/matthew-morris-salon-and-skincare-7th-anniversary-runway-show Last October, I saw on Facebook that MM Salon and Skincare was looking for photographers for their annual runway show. I had attended as a guest the previous year and it was a great time and quite an event. With no experience at all in shooting runway shows, I contacted them, showed them my website and the small portfolio I'd built up so far, and offered my services for free. Again, I did a little cramming, searching the internet for anything I could find on shooting runway shows, spent a fair amount of time convincing myself I could do it, then put my camera in my bag and my party dress on. With my husband and some friends there to help calm my nerves, it ended up being a fantastic learning experience, and lot of fun!

Thank you to Mathhew Morris Salon and Skincare for the great opportunity!

The Lareaus https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/12/the-lareaus

 

 

 

 

I've taken my fair share of photos of these lovely friends before, but this was our first formal session - though "formal" isn't exactly the right word. We met at Belleview Park in early October and my husband came along to play and make funny faces at the girls, with whom we are both totally enamored. Though it took a little while to get the oldest used to the idea of a photo shoot, and the baby needed an unexpected outfit change shortly into things, we ended up with so many fun shots!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yay! Beautiful Mema was in town!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, good friends!

Kathleen https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/9/kathleen Recently, with the hope of building my portfolio, I posted an offer on Facebook for a one hour photo shoot. This was the first session booked as a result of that, and I couldn't be more thrilled with the experience. Beautiful, expectant mother Kathleen, whom I haven't seen since high school(!), contacted me inquiring about maternity photos. I told her I'd never done them, but would love to try. In the week or so leading up to the shoot, I looked up everything I could find on the subject - reading photography blogs, articles with advice, tips and tricks, and pouring over images. With all that information in the back of my mind, and my usual little pool of nerves in my belly, I headed over to Kathleen's.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Kathleen, for trusting me with this.

The Cluffs https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2013/9/my-cluffs Heidi and I have been talking about doing this forever, and finally, we did it! A Cluff family photo shoot. You'd think a shoot with a best friend would mean no pre-shoot nervousness, right? Well, it seems I can manage to get a touch jittery for just about anything. Fortunately, this family's madness (it was a hectic day for them) and my madness match up really well. I love these photos - and, of course, these people.

The Byrnes https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2012/12/the-byrnes I love these pics of my sweet in-laws. I brought Mark and the boys with me for this shoot so we could all spend some time with Grammie and Grandpa Frank. They played a little football while we wandered around the park and playground and got some great shots for Grammie's holiday cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are such good sports!

 

 

And such wonderful grandparents!

The Huston Family https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2012/11/the-huston-family I headed over to the Huston's last week for what was to be another new experience for me in the world of photography- a group of 16! I had the shoot all worked out in my mind before I arrived, had most of my new-challenge jitters calmed just enough to give me a little extra energy, and was ready to put my plan into action. First lesson learned: when it comes to a large group with several young children, things aren't likely to go as planned. I was hoping to get the large group shot done first, before the little ones lost their patience with smiling for the camera, then do some smaller family shots. But with people in varying states of readiness, sleeping babies, latecomers, and dog poop incidents, I found I had to just go with the flow. And in the end, I think we got some great stuff!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Carol, Murphy, and all the rest of your beautiful family!

Amy, Dave, Ciaran, Liam, Garrett, & Gannon https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2012/11/amy-dave-ciaran-liam-garrett-gannon This just may have been one of the quickest photo shoots ever. Amy was hoping to get some shots of her and Dave and their boys, but the odds were against us. With the weather, and the health of a couple members of the group, rapidly deteriorating, we set out to get it done...and fast. So we stuck close to home - an alley near my house. The boys had pretty good attitudes about the cold temperatures and beginning precipitation. I think they might just even have had fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They were also incredibly sweet and cooperative.

And handsome, to boot.

 

I've known Amy since before her boys were born. And look at them now.

 

         

 

 

 

                              And with the addition of Dave and his boys...

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a lovely family.

Heidi, Niall, Gwynie, and Jack https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2012/9/heidi-niall-gwynie-and-jack

 

 

I met Heidi, Niall, Gwynie, and Jack for a fun hour at Cheesman Park last weekend. We checked out the flowers and the view of downtown before heading over to the playground, all the while doing our best to catch up with busy little Jack. I worried for a minute that every shot of him would be of his backside, and there were indeed plenty of those.

 

 

But in the end, I think we got some great shots of this lovely family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you, Heidi, Niall, Gwynie, and Jack!

And Rusty!

2mylu napkins https://www.kristinallisonphotography.com/blog/2012/9/2mylu-napkins I did my first product shots last weekend. Natalie, of 2mylu designs, was confident enough to give me the directive, "just see what you come up with." It was a bit more challenging than I expected, for a variety of reasons. For example, not until after I had uploaded all the photos to the site and sent them on to Natalie did I show them to my husband, who promptly said, "Hey, look. There's you! In the spoon." Yep. There's me. Thanks, hon. I was so focused on the polish in that spoon, the lighting in the space and the angle of the shot, that I missed it entirely. Fortunately, I tried a few different angles and set-ups and came out with some nice stuff. So thank you, Natalie. I always love the stuff from 2mylu and this was a fun new experience.
