There’s something magical about watching a relationship unfold. To see two people fall in love, plan a life together, and then create the sweetest little being from that love. It’s the slow timeline that I’ve had the privilege of watching for this family.
Tyler + Drew were made for each other. It’s clear in their passion for music and the arts and the way they cheer each other on in their careers and dreams. But mostly it’s been seen in how they have become parents, learning how to balance their time together and smothering their son, Demetrius Von Disco, with kisses. (It’s a fine balance).
Colorado Fall Family Photos
On this sunny fall afternoon in Colorado, just outside of Boulder, we got together to capture this family love. An heirloom that they’ll have forever to pass down to little “D” when he’s older and can see just how madly in love his parents were with each other and him.
For our last few shoots together the unpredictable Colorado weather didn’t always align for us. But on this day, it had. 60-degree temperatures, not a cloud in the sky, and the perfect sunset to light the long grasses on fire and create that magical golden hour provided the kind of photos we all dream of. It was like the sun had to witness this love and be a part of it.
There isn’t much I can say about this shoot that isn’t clear in the photos of this beautiful new family. Joy, love, hope, adventure, and excitement read on their faces and in the scenes of each image. I’m sure they thought I was just being nice when I said that this was one of my favorite shoots of all time. But between a happy baby and light you can only dream of, it was destiny that these photos would come together and tell the story of the magic of their love.
