A perfectly sweet baby boy entered the world this week into the arms of his parents, Amanda + Marshall. Here’s just a few first glimpses while I work on the rest of his birth story images. It was a perfect December night for a family to be born at Mountain Midwifery Center in Englewood, Colorado.

Welcome to the world, Ryan! Just like your mama said as she held you for the very first time– you are perfect.

No matter when you find out, whether during pregnancy or at the birth itself, I LOVE a good gender reveal moment! Imagine being able to remember the very moment you find out whether you have a son or a daughter. Your world is forever changed! (And if you’re anything like me you get beyond excited about declaring a name, decorating a nursery, annnnd buying too many clothes…)

Back in October Megan + Brian had their doctor’s office put the gender into an envelope to open later at home together. (Then after opening the envelope they kept it a secret from family and friends for weeks until they traveled home for the Thanksgiving holiday to share the fun news!) Now that they’ve shared the news with everyone, we can finally share the images here from the day they found out together.

Thank you, Megan + Brian for inviting me into your home to capture this oh so sweet moment!

It’s a….

This season is so much more than cozy sweaters, boots and coffees. It’s the perfect season to celebrate love and growing families. Weston + Jana will become a family of three this winter and what a better time to capture this time in their life than in the warm coziness of autumn. As the season changes into winter, they will be meeting their little girl for the very first time and I cannot wait to be there to capture that moment for them. We snuck away to one of my favorite places that still had a flourishing of autumn colors, just in time before the first cold rain faded the colorful leaves.

Weston + Jana… your fierce love and joy are contagious.
