Note From the Photographer

HI! I'm Becky Anderson. I am a natural light photographer. I find that natural light captures the emotion and personality of those I photograph best.

I do the majority of my photographs outdoors for two reasons. One, I love the element that nature, with its deep hues and filtered light, brings to the photo. Second, the natural light in the openness of the great outdoors brings an artistic element to photos that is gorgeous and unique.

If you are interested in scheduling a session or have any questions, please e-mail me at

I hope you enjoy my capture of life's greatest moments.

I am located in Thornton Colorado and serve the north Denver area. Also willing to travel, please contact me.

The rest of 'em....{Family Photographer Thornton CO}

So here are the rest of the pictures from the family a few weeks ago. These kids were such a riot to photograph! So cute and so much personality. Great family! Thanks {b} family for the great opportunity!


They brought this chair with them and between the wind and dirt we forgot to use it :) {n} sat in it while I took pictures of mom and dad and I couldn't help but snap a picture of her.

The 2 things EVERY session should include (and be printed after :)

 a shot of mom and dad. So many moms and dads have their wedding shot as the last professional picture of them together. We change too, we need to remember to capture that :)

AND a shot of just mom. How many of us moms are always behind the camera? I know in my family I am the picture snapper and I don't make too many appearances in front of the camera. Also, so many women have small businesses or blogs that we contribute too. Wouldn't it be nice to add a professional shot of yourself? And if not for anything else, our kids will have a picture of us 20-30 years from now. {c} was great and went along with it. She is beautiful!

Precious....{Newborn Photographer Thornton Colorado}

I love newborns!! They are the longest and in a way, the hardest, to work with, but I LOVE capturing those sweet moments when they are just a few days old. They are so innocent and precious and OH so sweet :) I also love seeing the love that mom and dad have for the sweet new baby and the love and excitement older siblings have.

Meet the {k} family with their new little one. So sweet! Thanks for the opportunity. Enjoy!

Can't forget big brother! He did such a great job!

The Holidays are coming.....{Thornton Colorado Family Photographer}

....Don't be stuck without a family photo for your Christmas card!!

I have a few sessions available in December and if you schedule before the 10th, you will have it before Christams!!

Here is one of my latest families. This was such a great family (I know I say that every time, but the best part of my job is I get to meet great family after great family!). We met up at the Adams County Fairgrounds on a SUPER windy day! But they were determined to get their family shots done before the Holidays began and I am glad we did. We got some fantastic shots and no one would guess we were about to get blown away :)

What to wear {Thornton Colorado Family Photographer}

Aside from choosing a photographer, one of the hardest and most stressful things is clothing.  

How much should you match? 
What colors look good together?
Will the colors clash with the location?
What clothes do we have that go together?

These are questions that I am sure most of us have asked ourselves. I will admit, clothing choice is my most dreaded thing about family pictures. So for those of you like me, who need a little inspiration, check it out  below. 

With Christmas just around the corner, if you haven't had your pictures taken, now is the time to get it done. Here are some ideas that will help make your family Christmas photo look great. 

These ideas have just a hint of the holidays in them with out over doing it :)

Oh how I miss this spot..

I found this location in Lincoln Nebraska last fall and fell in love with it!!! You can't go wrong with old wooden garage doors with fresh green ivy growing up them. I was able to take these pictures of a family friend before we headed out to Colorado. I love how they turned out! They are such a great family and so much fun to photograph. You can see the fun they have together and the love they have for each other in their pictures! Thanks {J} family!

**Picture overload** Can't help it I LOVE and MISS the great Corn husker state!!


They may not like me for posting this picture, but I thought it turned out so darn funny!

This little chunk is so cute!! Look at those cheeks.

Daddy-Daughter moment. Gotta love it!

11-1-11 {Thonton Colorado Family Photographer}

Wow what a day (and a lot of ones :). This year has flown by, I can't believe we are already in November! Things should slow down with Halloween over. I make my kids costumes and I procrastinate so the month of October, particularly the last couple weeks, are always so hectic for me.

Anyway, now that things have slowed down, I thought I would finish the post I started. Here is the rest of the {R} family. Seriously great couple with the one of the cutest little guys! I love the mountains in the background of these!
