Aspen Family Portrait Photography

In order to achieve the highest quality of photos to display in your home, I shoot with a 2023 Canon Full Frame Mirrorless R6 (EOS), entirely manual. I also shoot in raw - allowing for the best resolution for prints or enlargements direct from your gallery and make beautiful art work.

Location choices are up to each individual client, once you contact me for booking we can talk about your inspiration and spots that I recommend to attain that vision. Just to name a few ideas if you are just starting the planning stage - Aspen Mountain, Mt. Sopris, Reudi Reservoir, Roaring Fork River, Maroon Bells, Ashcroft Ghost Town, Downtown Aspen, Independence Pass, or maybe we hike and find the hidden gems together!

After taking photos for clients for over 10 years, I have learned so much. The most important part of the photo experience for me is that my clients walk away feeling like 'well that was a breeze'; and don't feel burned out from any overshooting or unnecessarily dragging the clock.

We laugh, we play- we pose for a few portraits- snap some cute candids and trust me; I will get 'all of the shots' in the allotted amount of time.

Within 2-3 weeks of our shoot together, you will receive an online viewing gallery with everything that turned out. From there, you can choose the images you would like to keep with a follow up gallery sent afterwards for you to download directly + a personalized link available to share with friends and family.

Prints are also available (and recommended to print direct) through your gallery.

*If for any reason, a client needs to extend a session for a few minutes that is also always ok with me.

If someone in your family requires special needs during our time together, please reach out directly and I am happy to accommodate those needs and work with you to create a suitable package and experience for you and your family.

What is lifestyle photography?

Lifestyle photography is the art of capturing real-life situations in an artistic manner and finding 'the art' of the everyday. Think of you tickling your children, and the pure joy in their faces. I find lifestyle photography so beautiful and if you've never had a lifestyle shoot, I believe you will love the end results!

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm currently based in Basalt, CO. If you want me to photograph your story and you are further than 25 miles, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within 2-3 weeks time, depending on the season in which we book.

What should we wear?

I love this question and I would love to help you pick our your outfits or send you examples of what looks the best in photos!
If you are the fashion type, then you've got this handled. If you typically struggle with putting together outfits for the entire family and it stresses you out, just reach out and we can easily get you and your family photo shoot ready together!

Can I purchase more photos from the online gallery?

Yes, absolutely! The number of photos in your package have been hand selected and edited. In your personalized gallery, your full shoot is available to view and/or purchase.

Do you offer prints?

Yes! If you would like to order and print directly through Little Lime Tree to ensure the highest quality, you can easily order and choose from a variety of the following through your personalized gallery store:
*Wall Art
*and more!

Kelly is awesome!

Very accommodating to my schedule, captured just the photos I had imagined, and made it a fun experience.

Highly recommend!
