The Adventure Family
You'll find Jaime in most of my Colorado adventure blogs. We share a love of getting outdoors and trying new things. She's the one that will email you early in the morning that she has found a trapeze class and there are still openings. Heights don't bother her and if she is really scared, she knows it was a good time and rush. Chris, her husband, is her perfect adventure partner. He comes up with the coolest ideas, they paddle boarded through the Mangroves in Florida, hang-glided off of Lookout Mountain in Golden and love to water raft....in JUNE.
I've wanted to do Jaime's family photos for a while. Their son Michael is 3 and like most 3-year-olds, he does not want his picture taken, so Jaime has politely brushed me off when I ask her about possibly doing a session. Then one day on our hike I talked about wanting to do a S'mores session. Just go up to the mountains, light a fire and take photos of a family making S'mores. Jaime's face lit up, and soon I had my first S'mores session. With the suggestion of my friend Janelle Henderson, another adventure lady, we went up Boulder Canyon and made some S'mores and this session was everything I wanted it to be and more.
Michael was in heaven. Like his mama, he loves being up in the mountains, and add some marshmallows to the mix, he was a happy little boy. As the sunset, the sugar high was becoming more intense and the smiles bigger. He didn't even mind taking a few posed photos too. This little adventure session, was one of my favorites as it has everything near and dear to my heart. The Colorado mountains, campfires, smores, skwer fights, and a whole lot of love!!
