Just in case you didn’t get it before from the website name, I’m the woman behind the camera. 

Walls are lonely without photos. Coffee tables are sad without photo albums. And your Christmas cards should not have everyone in matching reindeer sweaters (unless that’s your vibe, which is honestly pretty awesome). Let's do this memory-making thing!

It's me, Megan!

boulder Colorado maternity session with toddler

Boulder Family Photographers | Boulder, CO Family Session

The Location

As a Boulder family photographer, I have to be flexible with the weather. Luckily on this day, I didn’t have any worries. I met Anna and her crew in Boulder on a perfect afternoon. The previous day we had winds at 20mph and I was thinking there is no way we would be able to make the session happen. Wind can be fun, but wind and a toddler is NEVER fun, especially in the dead of winter.

Family Session Tips

I prepped Anna by making sure she brought a few cozy blankets and some favorite toys (See the guest appearance of the adorable ukulele below!). I always recommend this for every family session, even if it’s not in winter. Everyone loves a picnic right? And toys in the heat of a toddler meltdown can be a total game changer. I also always let my parents know that meltdowns are completely normal and I would be surprised if they didn’t happen. It can be cold, hot, overwhelming during the shoot and this brings out all the emotions. Also, HUNGER. A hungry kid is a recipe for chaos as every parent knows so stashing a few snacks is always helpful. I’m giving a few tips for toddler photo sessions but in reality this crew didn’t need many of them at all. Little man was having such a blast and since he is a new walker, exploring this awesome outdoor space was heaven. It’s hard to believe in a few short months he will take on the “older bro” role when he meets his new little brother. Such exciting times for this family and I can’t wait to meet their newest addition!

Megan is the best! Megan was hands down our best wedding vendor and we would hire her 1000 times over. Actually, I know we will when we need family photos! Megan is not only incredibly talented with photography but she really helps keep to the time line, which helped us a ton on the day of! From our crazy (blizzard) engagement shoot to a month after the wedding we have loved working with and talking with Megan! We couldn’t be more in love with our photos and are so thankful!! She captured everything we wanted and so much more, and we even have a photo of almost every guest!!

There were points during the ceremony that I think Megan duplicated herself to get every angle. My fiance and I were both uncomfortable in front of the camera and Megan was able to get us to relax and get plenty of authentic, candid and beautiful photos. There are so many that we love that we don't know how we will choose what to frame or include in our photo albums. Megan has a great approach to weddings, she provides just enough feedback to help you take the perfect photos while also staying in the background to allow you to enjoy each moment of your special day.

Megan was an absolute godsend from the beginning. Not only does she take amazing photos and has a very approachable price-- her personality is a total bonus! She lightened the mood when storm clouds rolled in ("It won't rain. It never rains. Those clouds are a joke, no way, not today!") and when our wedding shuttle brought guests to the wrong place- she kept us laughing and moving through the photo-ops efficiently. She was directive and efficient- both things you really NEED on your wedding day- while still being calm and positive. Megan's an absolute gem... we could not have asked for more in a wedding photographer and look forward to using her services for future events!
