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.

a little pumpkin.....{Thornton Colorado Newborn Photographer}

Isn't she cute? Now you know why I LOVE working with newborns! Who wouldn't want to play and stare and take pictures of cute squishy babies like this one. So precious! Little Miss rocked it and did amazing through the whole session.

We even got a couple little smiles :) 


Mom to be.....{Thornton Colorado Maternity Photographer}

So a couple months ago I met up with these "soon to be's". We had a great time and they played along with all my craziness :) Thanks to mom and dad to be (well who actually already are :) for a great night. Enjoy your portraits and the little baby girl that came after them :)

Homegrown Monday....5280 Bliss

Wow it has been a while! I am still here and alive, but October was a whirlwind of craziness around our house. So I have decided to switch my Homegrown Fridays to Homegrown Mondays, because it seemed people weren't checking them out until then anyway. So here we go for our first Homegrown Monday and I am SO excited to introduce her. We seriously have some crazy talented people here in the Denver area! So no more talking from me..

When did you start your business?  
September 2010.  My husband and I were going to be empty nesters and my plan was to get a part-time office job.  The only way to have the flexibility that I wanted was to work for myself.  Opening 5280 Bliss was a birthday present to myself.

I sell personalized paper banners for special occasions.

All the shades of green found in nature. 

Favorite piece of clothing or accessory?  
Wedding band and hoop earrings.  Socks.  I love socks.

Favorite vacation spot?  
The beach with family.  The sound of the ocean relaxes me.

What makes you smile?
