I love this family. They are a beautiful family of 5 and local pastors in the Monument, Colorado area. Sadly, they are heading for a new journey as they move out east to start a new pastoral position. The M. Family is so very, very in love with our beautiful Colorado, and they wanted to capture their love for this amazing state with me at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site. We met at the ranch early in the morning with a few surprises along the way, including a tiny garden snake who slithered past us as we started our hike. Doug handed off the little snake to his kiddos who loved getting up close to such a cool reptile. I’m not the biggest fan of snakes of any sort, but I enjoyed seeing the kids so excited over it. Mia and Doug are an incredible couple with equally incredible kids. Their little ones are Fable, Cyfer, and Ember…coolest names ever, right?!?! We had a blast capturing these moments together, and I’m terribly sad to see them go. These little angels sure are adorable! Thank you, Doug & Mia for spending time with me and giving me the honor of capturing your family before you head off on a new adventure!
