The Sweetness of the Stoltzfus Family

Happy Monday! I have been waiting for weeks to get this post up. Between traveling out of state (which was awesome, there’ll be a great session on the blog sometime…soon)

and going into busy season, it’s taken a little bit to put this together. BUT, here it is, the Stoltzfus Family/Newborn Session! I’m warning you now…My favorites are scattered along the post because there we so many great shots. You’ll have to scroll the whole thing to see them all!

Jen contacted me through the referral of a friend, which always makes my day. We got a date set up to take photos of Luca, their newborn. Our session almost had to get rescheduled as the day before we had that massive, 3 ft of snow, blizzard. Thankfully it was a typically CO spring snow, and the roads were clear enough for travel the next day. This family is beautiful. Even in the midst of the crazy transition of welcoming a new baby, they were peaceful together. One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is being able to capture people together…and this was a great together session. In fact, the whole goal was to capture Ali, their sweet daughter, with Luca, their new little man, together. I felt so privileged to get to spend the time I did with this wonderful family. I think you will love them, too!

This is Sweet Ali…

Ali held onto Luca so well. She’s only 2, and truly amazing me with her sunshiny disposition through the entire time of having her photo taken. I soaked it in!

Luca’s little face is incredibly perfect! He’s a handsome little man.

1 thing old men and brand new babies have in common…wrinkles. Why can’t MY wrinkles be this cute?

Something that really struck me was how gentle dad was with his family, even though you can tell he’s a strong man.

One of my favorites. This entire session looked amazing in black and white. It was so hard to choose between color and not!

I didn’t realize this sequence was here until I was editing. Ali grabbed first her nose…

And then so gently grabbed Luca’s nose too.

There they are, a new family of 4!
