Father's Day

From Bryan to His Dad

Note from Aimee: This year marks the 12th anniversary of my father-in-law's death. I didn't know it, but my husband Bryan has been writing a letter to him for a while. When I read it, I cried. He graciously allowed me to share it here…

So Much Love: Amy + Nick Wedding Photos

I don't often photograph weddings but when I do - it's the most fun when it's friends. Nick and Amy are half of a fantastic band in Fort Collins named Post Paradise and we have been going to their shows for years. I was honored to capture their special day - and what clearly is a special relationship between them, their family and friends. Nick and Amy - Colorado Wedding Photos

Dear Mom

First of all, happy birthday! Normally at this time, we would be sleepily gathering around the speaker phone to call and sing as off-key to you as possible. Secondly, we miss you. It's been a rough seven months since you passed, both for our family and for the world. I think I only have just started the process of grieving you because there've been so many other things to go through along the way. If I am being honest, I have had some anger because of the way your affairs were left and the messes I have had to clean up, but I understand that it was difficult for you to do anything differently. I also feel incredibly lucky to be able to put work on hold while I handle things. But mostly, we just miss you.

Hummel Nights

I picked up my habit of collecting Hummels from my German family and my mom in particular. I was able to take a few of hers home with me after she passed last month and my favorite is on the mantel. I have been doing…

For Mom
