Oh, this one is such a joy for me to write. I had the opportunity to photograph the McLellan Family a few weeks ago at their home in Arvada and out and about in Historic Downtown Arvada. What a joy! I was first introduced to Jen McLellan through a mutual friend who felt like we might connect and be able to help promote each others work. Jen is the fantastic mind behind Plus Size Birth and Plus Size Mommy Memoirs. We hit it off over email and I had the privilege of photographing her and some wonderful women in the birthing community in my first group boudoir shoot. From the moment I met her, I could tell that she was a rare gem of a person. Jen has grown to be a wonderful friend of mine. She is strong and smart, kind and thoughtful, and takes the time to champion others in a way that is so genuine. I am so grateful that I have had the chance to get to know her and look forward to many years of friendship.
I have spent a little time with little B, Jen's son, in the past. Each time, he grows more comfortable with me and I get to see the exuberant spirit he possesses. He is such a character and lets out these short bursts of laughter when he is amused that just have me in fits of giggles. Chris, Jen's husband, is wonderful. You can tell he adores Jen and B so much and I am excited to get to know him even better. I know we will get along as anyone who has a red anniversary edition Mario Wii is bound to be my friend.
Please enjoy some highlights from the shoot:
