The Ennas || A Colorado Springs Family Session

colorado family portraits

We’ve been lucky enough to know the Enna family for a few years now. We first met when I started babysitting their kiddos and have since grown into friends. They even took us in for a few days when we had returned from vacation and our camper wasn’t ready to be picked up from the shop yet.

I was so excited when Brenna reached out and asked if I would take some updated family photos of them for the holidays. Um, HECK YES I will! These guys are beautiful and such a breeze in front of the camera. It was a chilly session, but everyone smiled and snuggled and we had a great time!

All that to announce – we are officially introducing family portrait and short film sessions to the Basecamp brand! I (Shanna) have been doing family sessions for awhile and instantly fell in love with them. The joy and fulfillment I feel when I walk away from photographing a young family made the decision easy. I believe so strongly in the little moments – piggyback rides in the backyard, dancing in the kitchen, cuddles on your favorite blanket, catching frogs & chasing fireflies, warm embraces and glee filled giggles. Our family sessions are based around these normal, everyday moments. Dirt under your toddler’s fingernails, the rolls of your baby’s thighs, wind blown hair, interlaced fingers, and stolen glances of pure love & joy. You can expect minimal direction, few poses, and most importantly, beautiful, real images to cherish for a lifetime.

Basecamp is about so much more than wedding stories. We want this brand to encompass each and every way you #exploreyourstory. At it’s core, we’re still about love stories and always will be. BUT, the cool part is, is that love looks like a lot of things. It’s the love of your family. The love of your small business. It the heart and the tears that you put into what you’re passionate about every single day. That’s what Basecamp is about, and we want to expand beyond your wedding days to help you show the world where else your heart lies.

We’re now booking family sessions starting in the new year and would LOVE to join your tribe for a fun afternoon at home baking cookies or chasing each other through the trees. Whatever your story looks like, let’s do that.

Isamar + Manny || an Icelandic Engagement Gallery & Film

“forever i, forever i am yours.”

These last 6 months have been filled with countless opportunities & growth… and the endless challenges that go along with it. We sold our house, started a lengthy (and maddening Airstream renovation that will quite possibly never be finished), traveled the world, filmed and photographed more than 20 amazing couples, played with our kids, drove thousands of miles, celebrated a family wedding, bought a stupidly huge blow up pool and used it twice, laughed a lot and cried a little (maybe I have that backwards?) and slept in more basements/guest bedrooms/pull out sofas/ floors/airbnbs than I care to admit and ever want to think about again. It’s been somethin’. In mid October, we went to Iceland. Just the two of us. For a whole week! This was our first time away from our kiddos and while we missed them, we took full advantage of how freaking EASY everyday life was without them. Ha! We slept in. We drove around all day most days without worrying about when the boys would wake up and need to get out. We napped. We ate in total peace and actually enjoyed each and every meal while it was still hot. We also got to meet and work with two incredible couples, including Izzy & Manny!

Izzy & Manny joined us for their engagement session in Iceland all the way from Dallas. Met with welcoming arms and big hearts like only Texans can offer, these two left us feeling so encouraged and uplifted. The morning spent with them felt nothing like work, and even though we made them hike for nearly an hour toward a waterfall we never did find, they never stopped smiling.

You two – thank you. We LOVED meeting you and documenting this sweet season of your life. Congratulations, again!

Vista View Ranch || A Styled Film

“The weight of the world is love. The weight, the weight we carry is love.”

Have you had the opportunity to visit western Colorado’s PRETTIEST venue yet? Vista View is it, and the sweet Kinsey & Katie were kinda enough to open up this lovely place for a styled shoot this summer! Designed by the wonderful Erica Sarell Weddings, we were so excited to be invited to provide a BTS film. Vista View is located on Open Heart Ranch, just outside of Rifle, Colorado, where it’s a completely different type of beauty than what you think of when you typically think Colorado, but breathtaking, nonetheless.

We hope you enjoy our take on this shoot! Watch the film and check out the full list of vendors below!

Makenna + Seth || An Intimate Wedding in Idaho Springs, Colorado

“And that verse joyfully proclaims: ‘The God of the universe; the God that breathed the sun into existence; the God that formed you in your mother’s womb; the God that made these mountains and these trees and the beautiful weather; the God that designed human anatomy; that that God loves you.’ …so I pray, that for the rest of your lives you cling to this love of Jesus and extravagantly express it to each other and everyone you know.”

Never before have we felt so moved by a couple’s love story. Never has a couple touched our hearts the way Seth & Makenna did. From day one, everything felt so seamless and simple with these two. We were thrilled to be asked to provide a wedding film for them.

Their July wedding day at the incredible Blackstone Rivers Ranch in Idaho Springs, Colorado was one of the best days. The love of family and the outpouring of support for this marriage was overwhelming – but in the gentlest, most beautiful way. These two are so, SO loved. We loved witnessing their union as husband and wife and truly feel honored to have been able to be a small part in telling their amazing story.

We hope you LOVE their wedding film. It’s a favorite of ours.

Here’s a look back at their teaser, too!

rocky mountain national park || a family hike to dream lake

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. – John Muir

In an effort to get a little more personal around here, we’re sharing some fun shots from a recent hike in Rocky Mountain National Park last Friday! September is insanity in wedding world, so a day away from the screens was much needed for our little family. We hiked and ate and drank a lot of beer and it was glorious.

We made up the 1.1 mile hike to Dream Lake just as the sun was setting and the light was amazing! We joke that nothing motivates me (Shanna) like good food and good light. To say this day was the best day all around only begins to cover it. So grateful for this life.
