I’m a photographer in Durango CO who shoots weddings, families, and boudoir sessions. Of course, all Durango CO Photographers do most of these types of sessions, so what makes me different? I like to make things perfect for your images; I’ll help you out with other vendors; If it’s a wedding, I’ll be your “day of” coordinator; if you’re a friend, I’ll even photograph your newborn baby – even though I don’t typically do those types of sessions any more.
Lizzy and Richard were married in June of 2016 and my husband (who is also a Durango Photographer) photographed their wedding at Antlers on the Creek Bed and Breakfast. My hubby and I actually live about 20 miles east of Durango in the county. Lizzy and Richard lived in Durango at the time of their wedding, but then moved into the same mountainous subdivision where we live, so now we’re neighbors! Richard is a huge fan of the Patriots football team, so of course he wanted a photo with him and his new son in their jerseys. They also have a very large dog, which makes little Landon appear even smaller.
Richard works for Four Corners Stove and Spas, and Lizzy works is an advertising media buyer who works from home. Well, as sometimes happens after a couple is married, she got pregnant. Yay! Lizzy gave me a call to see if I would photograph her new baby once he was delivered. Of course, I couldn’t say no because I love these people. I quit photographing newborns some time ago because I always had a hard time getting the parents to be ready within 5 days of the birth. I understand that it’s hard just 5-10 days afterwards, but that’s the absolute best time to photograph a newborn. They’re mostly sleeping instead of crying and fussing.
Landon Reid Moore was born a little early, so he was a tiny little thing, and so very cute. Five days after he was born, I packed up my car with lighting equipment, my camera, a backdrop, and some props and headed to their house. Even though he was a tiny thing and was only 5 days old, he was alert and fussing some of the time. It takes a long time to get shots of a newborn – haha.
I’m going to include one of their wedding photos, and then the rest are of Landon, Lizzy, and Richard.
Thank you for taking a look and I hope you enjoyed these images.
