What’s better than a family photoshoot? An extended family photoshoot! When everyone comes together: aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, siblings, parents…all under one roof. Or in this case, all under the open Colorado sky.
With each of their families growing up, the Sheffield extended family didn’t want to waste another moment before capturing their family all together.
Many of their children are growing quickly into teenagers and adults. Time flies rapidly, but they love how the kids are old enough to do more together now.
The Sheffield’s and their respective families had 19 total people in their family portrait session. That’s one large photoshoot! But luckily, we had the perfect location for this great family.
A Golden Extended Family Photoshoot
When choosing a spot for their family pictures, the Sheffield family choose their Grandma and Grandpa’s ranch in Golden, CO. The surroundings in Golden definitely lived up to their name. The golden grass with evening’s golden light provided the perfect backdrop for professional family photos.
And it wasn’t just the location that was golden. We were lucky enough to have the extended family photoshoot on the day of Grandma and Grandpa Sheffield’s 50th wedding anniversary.
What they wanted most to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary were professional pictures with the whole family. Not a bad gift!
That’s just one amazing part about my job. Getting to bring families together. Whether it’s two newlyweds just starting their family, or three generations all brought together for an evening, doing this reminds me what it’s all about. Family. And the love we have for each other.
Family Portraits that “Last a Lifetime”
When I asked the Sheffield’s what they hoped they would get out of this extended family photo session, they just wanted beautiful, quality pictures “that will last a lifetime.” I’m proud to say we got just that.

Getting everyone together for a family photoshoot always gets harder as kids grow older. But the Hudson family won’t let a year go by without getting family photos done.
For the Hudson’s, they love seeing how much their four daughters change each year. Family portraits are their favorite way to capture the special moments they have with each other. I have to agree with them there!
When the Hudson family came to me asking to have a family photoshoot, they wanted to make sure that they had a good mix of candid and posed shots. However, what mattered most to them were professional family photos that captured how close their family is.
That came easily with the Hudson’s! This naturally close-knit family brought the perfect charm that made this photoshoot so fun.
One thing I loved about this photoshoot was seeing how much the Hudson sisters loved each other. Although the oldest daughters are far apart in age from their two younger sisters, they still have a strong sisterly bond.
Right now, the oldest two girls are away at college. But when they are home, the Hudson’s like to spend every moment they can together.
When I asked the Hudson family what they love to do together, they said they just enjoy being together, chatting the night away. They love keeping things casual!
One fun tradition the Hudson parents have is always getting a dipping picture. We found the perfect spot in front of Union Station to continue such a great tradition!
The Hudson’s urban family photoshoot in downtown Denver gave me the chance to find those spots that often go unnoticed in the hustle and bustle of the city.
I think that’s a lot like life. Sometimes we don’t notice how fast our life is moving, until we look back on those special moments and see how far we’ve come. It’s why family photos can be such a treasure!

I love getting to revisit with families and see how much they’ve grown! When I last did a family photoshoot for the Rothey Family, they were one family member short. But I think we all love the newest addition.
The Rothey’s sure love to laugh! Luckily we got plenty of chances to laugh together in this particular photoshoot up at Davidson Mesa in Louisville, CO.
At home the Rothey’s often find themselves chasing their kids around the house, with frequent visits from the tickle monster. They can’t get enough of hearing their kids laugh, and I don’t blame them! Their smiles were infectious.
Their oldest child is the epitome of a good big brother.
He not only protects his younger sisters, he shows them love that only a four-year-old can show: sweet, kind, genuine, and completely unselfish. As his mother says, “He loves to love on his sisters,” sometimes a little too much!
The Rothey’s second child is what her parents describe as a sassy three-year-old. I couldn’t agree more!
She was a ball of energy and personality during the family photoshoot. But underneath her defiant attitude was a special sweetness. I could tell how much she was a daddy’s girl.
Their youngest just turned one when we had this photoshoot. When I last took pictures for the Rothey’s, this was the age of their elder daughter. After seeing their previous family portraits capture the sweetness and youth of their young children, the Rothey family didn’t want another summer to go by without capturing the same sweetness that they see in their youngest.
She glowed! And it wasn’t just the setting Colorado sun that made her shine.
What the Rothey’s love about the stage they’re in with their family right now is that genuine love they feel from their kids. Their children will tell their parents that they love them, just because. That’s the kind of sweetness I love to capture with these family photoshoots.
“When you took our family photos, it captured a sweetness we never want to forget.” – Traci
Capturing Perfect Moments
Childhood is fleeting. Those sweet moments come and go. But with a photograph, you always have that perfect moment forever. That’s what family photography is for me. Saving perfect memories to look back on and cherish for years to come.

This family has been a loyal client of mine for 4 years now. Every time we get together for a shoot for family photos it’s an absolute blast! I can’t begin to express how much their continued business means to me. I love seeing their family grow up.
I like to think all my clients become my friend after we spend such a fun time together, but it’s always an extra special time with it’s a family I already know and love. Emily was no exception and scheduled a photo shoot so she can have beautiful prints and a long-lasting family photo album.
After breaking my weather rescheduling record and rescheduling 7 times, the Jardin family and I were finally able to head down to my secret spot on a gorgeous day. I was so impressed with their patience and willingness to hang in there to get the perfect shots!
This young family was such a joy to work with and we had such a blast browsing my secret spot and pointing out ducks. The Jardin family has so much personality, they even used to have 4 chickens all named after the Golden Girls. I love being able to bring out the personality of everyone in a photo. read more
Professional family photography gives you beautiful images that will bring a smile to your face for a lifetime. A photo freezes a moment in time, keeps your child at this beautiful age and lets a loved one live on long past their time on this earth. I was honored to shoot my long time friend and her family when I was back home in Alexandria, Virginia.
Melissa wanted to capture the beauty of her 5-year-old daughter exactly as she is, a 5-year-old. She wanted beautiful memories of her darling daughter to live on forever, not just a snapshot on her phone. read more
