Babies grow and babies grow fast. I know this, but I don’t think I was quite prepared for the mover and shaker Grace has become since her 3-Month Session. Holy cuteness! (Don’t miss her newborn session – check it out here!)

Our time together started in Pinewood Springs after a little car trouble for the Bodins. Before caravaning back to Estes, We snagged a few pictures around the Colorado Cherry shop, at which in all my many comings and goings from Estes I had never stopped. (Wish I would’ve gotten a snap of the location where I shot the above family portrait. Nothing like sticking your subjects in a grove of evergreens on a precarious slope along the side of a dirt road! No humans were endangered or harmed in the taking of this image.)

Back in Estes, we headed to Taylor + Dawn’s backyard. Living in Estes Park, it’s hard not to find a location that isn’t beautiful, but backyards are seriously underrated shoot locations. It was a little windy and cold, and Sweet Gracie was shivering in our short time outside, but she is such a cheerful little one.

 I cannot get enough of Gracie’s eyes! That blue is real folks. Seriously. I didn’t edit them.

Taylor, Dawn, and Gracie,

Thanks for hanging with me on such a chilly Fall day. Getting to see Gracie grow in change is an experience I can’t quite put into words. With every expression she makes, I see each of you – her eyes and smile are a magical combination of the gentle calm and joy each of you exudes. It is an honor to be the one to document this first year of your lives together.
