Katie + Tim | Crested Butte, CO. | Engagement Proposal


I absolutely enjoy the most epic and adventurous photoshoots ever. Katie + Tim’s was one of those photoshoots. Tim’s sister contacted me about shooting a surprise shoot for his brother’s proposal and guys I am not gonna lie but I am so glad she did this for them!

When Tim reached out to talk about details on how the whole day would go, and his vision of how he wanted to propose with the mountain being in the backdrop, I knew right away that Snodgrass Mountain was the right place to do it. John and I snowshoe hiked a mile uphill first to make sure we would hide around to get the best shots as possible, Katie + Tim cross country skied with they’re two dogs and I mean just look for yourself we were all full of emotion for them! Not gonna lie I cried when he shared the story behind the ring!

The ring contains Katie’s grandmothers ring diamonds and the center diamond is a uniquely chipped rock.

Haakenson | Family Photography | Mill Creek, CO.


Have you ever wonder what a family of boys looks like, or how on earth does the mother do it? When I first met the Haakenson family I was so amazed to see four boys well behaved and very respectful. I learned that day that God has given a mother a huge power to rule in our kids lives, but if God grants you the gift of being a mother of boys, you have to embrace that he has gifted you a little of his own power, he has created you a super hero for boys. That day I saw Amy enjoy every piece of her boys and cherish the joy they had as they ran around the field. I cherished her laughter/ smile. She taught me motherhood is one wild adventure and a very fun one, she taught me that God gave me superhero powers to be a mother.
