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.

Head shots.....{Thornton Colorado Photographer}

I took these images a couple months ago for some local businesses. 

First meet Corrie from CLB Photography. She is the awesome photographer that snapped these pictures of me and my kiddos. She is located in the North Denver area and keeps your session full of fun!

 It is amazing what changing the head tilt does. These images were taken seconds from each other.

Corrie is such a fun, FUN, girl and amazing photographer!

Next meet Aaron from The Marriage and Family Clinic. He is a Marriage and Family Therapist (in case you didn't get that from the clinics name :) located in Westminster. These are his head shots for his website and profile pictures.

Homegrown Friday....{Thornton Colorado Photographer}

So a few years ago I learned how to crochet and became addicted to yarn.

Buying yarn, looking at yarn, feeling yarn, and looking at all the wonderful things I could do with yarn. 

Sadly, just like many of my other crafty addictions it turned more into a hoarding hobby than an actual crafting hobby :) So years later I still have those many, many, many, skeins of yarn but have no energy or motivation to make anything out of it.

So today I would like to introduce a little eye candy for all those yarn lovers like myself :) I LOVE her hats and the best part is if you are an actual crocheter (is that a word??) or knitter you can buy her pattern to make it yourself.

So onto my first Homegrown.....

Summer Lovin'...{Thornton Colorado Photogarpher}

......had me a BLAST! 

I LOVE summer! 
I love the bright fun colors, wearing fun flowery sandals, lemonade stands, popsicles, family and friend BBQ's, swimming, and all the time I get to spend with my kids. 

With summer being halfway over I figured I would give you some What to Wear guides. Enjoy them and use them as inspiration, even for early fall. I love just a little pop of color!

Summer Days....{Thornton Colorado Family Photographer}

Summer days are getting fewer and fewer! It is amazing to me how fast the summer goes. I had all these plans of things to do with my kids during summer break, and have decided now that we only have about a month before school starts I better get doing them :) But the hot summer days make me want to stay in my nice cool house and eat Mr. Freeze pops while reading books to my kids. 

Anyway, through all the heat and fires this summer I have been able to photograph so many great families! Here is one that I met last fall. They are so much fun and lil' Mister is so darn cute! Being the age he is, he was go, go, go the whole session :) Here are a few of their shots. Enjoy!
