the Spaldings | Golden, CO Family Photographer

Hi. My name is Chriselda… and i LOVE photographing these three. I have had the joy of photographing them since Maitland was just an infant. And now she has this adorable personality that charmed the socks right off of me. Combine these pretties with mountains as your backdrop?? Pretty much means this is one of my most favorite family sessions of all time.

James Henry’s Birthday | Amarillo Birth Photographer

I  had been in Palo Duro Canyon with no cell phone service when Julie let me know she was in labor.  When i finally returned to the rim of the Canyon i started receiving alerts from her. I quickly rushed back into town… thinking i would miss it. I literally ran the entire way through the parking lot, hospital entrance and through the hospital hallways … sweat covered and bathed in insect repellent.

but things were much more calm in the delivery room. Julie was sitting in bed smiling and the staff was quietly preparing for his arrival. Shortly after, James arrived in a similar fashion; calm. no fuss. and laid back baby perfection!

It happens naturally and it is one of the most pure moments that occurs. It always brings a tear to my eye to see this.Amarillo Birth Photography006Amarillo Birth Photography007Amarillo Birth Photography008Amarillo Birth Photography009Amarillo Birth Photography010Amarillo Birth Photography011Amarillo Birth Photography012Amarillo Birth Photography013Amarillo Birth Photography014The following morning, i came back to see him meet his four older siblings. Amarillo Birth Photography015Amarillo Birth Photography016Amarillo Birth Photography017Amarillo Birth Photography018Amarillo Birth Photography019Amarillo Birth Photography020Amarillo Birth Photography021Amarillo Birth Photography022Amarillo Birth Photography023Amarillo Birth Photography024these next few photos make me cry. this is why i love birth photography so much. the love just overflows.

Vincent and Reese | Dallas Children’s Photographer

There is something completely fantastic about photographing children. I love chasing them around. Watching their little personalities surface. Seeing them cut loose and giggle their way through a morning of being photographed. I aim to approach each children’s session with a playful spirit and energy; making my job more about play than forcing isolated smiles.

Vincent and Reese are the perfect fit for me. They were  so willing to open up and talk to me and hang out. They weren’t afraid to stop looking at the camera and start picking on each other or jumping around the park.

We met the morning after Dallas had seen tragedy. In the wake of the emotions and endless news stories, being able to meet with these two adorable tiny humans was refreshing and pure and allowed me to take a deep breath and realize how amazing life and this world actually is …and that there is a world full of happiness and joy and playfulness. For these two, life was only a matter of playing around in that park and having fun with each other… and for that morning… that’s all it was for me as well.

I promise you that you changed the course of my morning and the way i responded emotionally to tragedy. Your boys are adorable and completely charming. I cannot wait to meet you all again and photograph you

Tyler + Halzie | Engagement

Tyler, Halzie, and I stood there and talked for about 20 minutes before we even took a single photo. Full faced smiles would surface when i asked how they had started dating and how their relationship had progressed over time.  I was so happy to spend time with them… getting to know Halzie better and seeing her quiet and intentional nature. It had confirmed everything i already knew about her … and them

These two will be married soon. I suspect that they will have so many more moments of complete admiration and respect for each other and that their love will extend beyond their covenant with each other… and on to others who come into contact with them.

Together they make a great team. Together they share the same faith and respect. Together they advance their relationship with the Lord and with one another. And i… i get to photograph their journey!

eHHalzie000eHHalzie001eHHalzie002eHHalzie003I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE how happy they are together!eHHalzie004eHHalzie005eHHalzie006eHHalzie007eHHalzie008eHHalzie009eHHalzie010so sweet. eHHalzie011eHHalzie012eHHalzie013eHHalzie014Tyler and Halzie – i adore you. i love how you’ve done this whole thing. i love that you have the utmost respect for each other and that you take your marriage and vows so seriously.  I had the best time getting to know you better. Watching you be so tender with one another. I loved seeing you laugh and beam with complete joy. I cannot thank you enough for granting me the opportunity to capture your memories for you. I know that you will both do amazing things for the kingdom and that your marriage will flourish. If i didn’t love you before this session… i’m completely smitten with you both now!

be infinitely blessed
