For this Thanksgiving, Defy is especially grateful for a little Jellybean. One of our photographers recently had her first baby. This little guy has brought so much joy to so many people and it’s time to share him with you!

Sweet baby Liam is on his way right now to visit all of his family in Colorado for the Thanksgiving holiday. We know they are beside themselves waiting to see his precious face.

Here’s the brand new family of three!

Silly in love, true in love, forever in love.

This fall we had the pleasure of a double engagement session. They had many special places for their engagement photos so we split their time into two sessions. Here’s the second part at their wedding site with more fall colors. Between stealing kisses and whispers of love followed by giggles, this couple is headed for a lifetime of perfect true love! We look forward to joining them on their special day this coming winter.

Cedars Camps – best place ever!

Hail to Cedars, symbol of life! There is a fantastic camp in the middle of the Ozarks in Missouri called Cedars Camps. This camp has a special place in my heart because it’s where my husband and I met! His parents met there as well. So for our anniversary this year we went back to the place where it all began. There have been a lot of changes through the years, but it’s still a beautiful place. I hope these photos can share just a glimpse of the beauty that is Cedars.

Classic business headshots

We’ve blogged a lot about babies lately so we thought we’d spice things up and bring you a simple classic headshot session. This young man was looking to have headshots taken for use on the internet as well as print. We used the natural backgrounds of mother nature and provided him with a variety of clothing choice. If you are in need of headshots contact us today. We’d love to photograph for you!
