Colleen + Kris, a modern maternity – The Parker Palm Springs

October 19

This family is really really really special to me. It all started when Colleen was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot many years ago. I loved her adorable smile the moment I met her. Then she was engaged – and  she asked me to photograph her wedding.  And that is how a really amazing friendship began. Since then I documented every milestone in this couples life, and in some ways being a part of each chapter in their story has become a personal storytelling project for me. They are in many ways my muses.

Colleen and Kris are what I like to call a “power” couple. They work hard, they love fiercely, they are kind and charming and friendly to everyone they meet. Style and grace come naturally to them, and they are never ever pretentious – always welcoming to friends and strangers alike.  If I could wish anything for them at this stage in their life  it would be to understand how much love grows when you become a parent.  It literally makes your life explode in ways you never knew your heart could experience.  I am also secretly thrilled that we will have children so close in age to grow up and be friends.

Colleen & Kris, so much love to you my  friends – welcome to the parent club.
