Tess Polivka Photography » Denver newborn photographer :: Maternity, baby, family photographer

I met Hilary Jane pretty as soon as I moved to Denver 6.5 years ago. I’ve photographed most of her big life milestones and she’s always been willing to be a model. When she told me she wanted me to photograph her maternity photos I was so excited. The lacy dress and top have been sitting and waiting for a mama wanting this kind of shoot. Ladybird Poppy made the floral crown that made this session so feminine and perfect. Congrats, HJ! I can’t wait to meet little Gabe!

Ellery is 6 months!  She is also so chunky and sweet. I haven’t seen her since her newborn photos and she has become a strawberry blonde cutie pie. She loves her Octopus, Ocho, she thinks her mom is quite funny, and her dad is the perfect cuddle buddy. She’s discovered her hands and feet that are super fascinating and she’s hilarious with her little tongue. I can’t wait to see if her hair becomes more red and if her eyes stay the same warm gray. See you in another 6 months, Ellery!

Julie, Jeff, and I met as the sun was coming up at a park for a gorgeous sunrise session. I don’t think any of us were particularly happy about being up before the sun but the early morning gave us some really beautiful light. There’s a more dreamy quality to the photos. I think I’m a big fan of sunrise sessions now. We shivered in the chilly early morning air and chatted about life, family, and where we’re all originally from. Jeff has actually been to the part of Ohio that I’m from. We talked about Geneva-on-the-Lake and what a strange/awesome place it is. Click on the link just to see where I spent a good portion of my childhood. It really is a small world.

That baby is due soon and I can’t wait to meet the newest member of their family. Next up, newborn photos!! 🙂 Congrats Julie and Jeff!
