Headshot Refresh — January Portrait Event

January Means it’s Time to Refresh Your Headshot!

Goodbye 2022.

As I reflect on the past year, several photography sessions stand out.

One such is this headshot session. The man, a past mayor of Longmont, reached out to me via an unusual email. He wanted a new headshot to be used in his obituary. He also wanted to gift framed prints to his adult sons–a parting shot of their dad.

Even though this was his request, his email was not morbid–it was full of life and enthusiasm. He wanted me to make him look like Paul Newman or Ben Affleck. I suggested we should aim for Robert Redford.

It was an incredible honor to be chosen for this task, a blatant reminder of how important that work that I do is.

I look forward to all I will witness during photography sessions of 2023: new parents giving it their all to take care of tiny crying newborn babies, parents of multiple children corralling the gang as I capture love and chaos, high school seniors asserting independence and hope and confidence and insecurity and attitude all at once, couples in love nerding out, pet dogs trying to please their parents and me, clients of all ages sharing time with me.

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
