An intimate Boulder wedding...
That's where I met Kaylin, a Point Park University dance major who we quickly brought in to model at the magazine. Kaylin was always willing to try things and push boundaries, she's a firecracker at about 5-feet tall with gorgeous curly red hair, and an intensity in her eyes....
Skylar & Lilly are two of the most wonderful, genuine and warm women I know. I was so grateful and honored to photograph their wedding, which was as genuine and wonderful as they are.
It's about that time of year, each spring when photographers across America offer Mini Sessions for Mother's Day. I'm no different! Granted, I'm not a mother (yet...?) but I know when I am, I will want gorgeous photographs of my family that I can hang on the wall. So this year I am offering a special event for Moms in Denver!
As a friend to many mothers, doulas, and as an aunt, I'm come to understand that breastfeeding can be a very complicated thing in the first days, weeks and months of a new family's life. For a number of reasons, sometimes babies can't get the important nourishment that breastmilk provides. To help the best I can, I am donating the $100 session fees for these Mini Sessions to a local non-profit that helps babies get the milk they need - Rocky Mountain Mothers' Milk Bank.
So here's the deal: On Sunday, May 1st I will be giving families 30-minute sessions in Denver's Wash Park throughout the day! All of the information, how to book a slot, and to see the packages you will choose from (which is the real Mother's Day gift!) - click here.
I'm also so pleased that local Doula team Luna Doulas will be helping me promote and run this event. Check out these awesome ladies at www.lunadoulasco.com
Spring brings new things... flowers, budding trees, hopefully warmer and drier weather (though not always) and also, the launching of a new venture for me. My entrepreneurial focus has been on my photography thus far, but I am excited to announce that I am entering the wonderful world of Etsy and trying my hand at selling my creations. The shop will focus on custom illustrations, hand lettering, invitations, and custom branding packages for small businesses. It shall henceforth be know as....
The Wild Blue Wander.
Here is a sampling of what is to come! These items will be for sale on my new shop on Friday, April 1. Subscribe to my mailing list to get notice when the shop is open for business!
Join and follow me on Instagram @thewildbluewander and Facebook.
This will also bring about a big overhaul of my website here, to better showcase everything I am working on and offering. Stay tuned!
As part of a weekly illustration goal to keep me drawing, I made this "Oh, the Places You'll Go" and have posted here for you! Download, print, color, share, enjoy! If you do color it, I'd love to see what you do with it. Please click a photo and share it with #AbbysPrintables.
Beautiful couple Anne & Marty are expecting a baby boy in just a few weeks! They invited me into their home for a photo session and then a walk around the neighborhood.
I had the pleasure of joining the Mannen family on one of Denver's first really cold mornings for a family mini session that was going to be gift prints for their loved ones and a custom-designed card for mailing. Sweet little Jay was a bit grumpy from the cold, but his parents kept him warm with lots of hugs and we got this done fast!
I met the Lonsway-Schindler family in a small park near Denver University on an early Sunday morning in late summer for a very sweet portrait session.

I got to meet the O'Donnell's for my first session during my Free Week in late June. These sweet siblings hung out and played one morning with mom and dad and let me capture it.
Part of my Denver Free Week to celebrate my arrival in this new city was photography the Nourse family at Washington Park. Here is a collage of my favorites.
