beckett – family photos in golden colorado

We knew basically nothing about our neighborhood when we decided to build our house.  We signed the contract from Seattle after seeing the dirt lot and didn’t see the house again until the final walkthrough (talk about a leap of faith, right?).  We are so thankful for how things played out though.  Our neighborhood has...

what to wear for fall family photos

Shopping for fall looks is my FAVORITE.  I love all the warm, rich colors of fall and the cozy textures. Once again I turned to Old Navy to create some looks that I love that are versatile and affordable (wait for a 30-40% off online coupon code and they’re even MORE affordable!). Best of all, they’re comfortable...

now booking: “merry” mini sessions!

Too early to be thinking about your holiday card photos?  Well, I certainly don’t think so.  Snag one of my fall mini session spots and you’ll be SO ahead of the game this year!  (Also, these are the final mini sessions I’ll offer in 2017.) I’m excited to offer TWO locations and dates for my...

waiting for baby sister

We moved to Colorado to be closer to family.  When we decided that Colorado was the place we wanted to stay… long-term… it was because my brother and sister were here and it would be more accessible for the rest of our non-CO family members.  We also knew that John had extended family in the...

what to wear for summer family photos

There are so many fun summertime looks for family photos- I love all the bright colors!  Since Old Navy is where I purchased all the outfits for my OWN family photos last month, I thought I should do an updated outfit inspiration for summer with pieces that are currently in stock online at oldnavy.com. Check...

happy birthday miss freddy!

Every year I celebrate Miss Freddy’s “birthday” and this month she is is FOUR YEARS OLD!  In the past I’ve carefully selected a photo from every session I did that specific year (mini sessions excluded) for a “Freddy’s Favorites” contest.  I’ve loved that tradition, but, truth be told, this year’s Freddy’s Favorites contest would contain...

now booking: colorado summer mini sessions!

Whew!  Last week was a whirlwind when my 2017 travel sessions went on sale (if you missed it, I’ll be visiting Seattle, Minneapolis & Milwaukee!) but I certainly don’t want to leave my local friends out of the excitement.  I’m offering  COLORADO SUMMER MINI SESSIONS in Golden on July 9th!  [Also, if you’re planning ahead, I’ll be doing...

waiting for little brother

When sweet little Theodore came bouncing into our Music Together class, I couldn’t help but notice his gorgeous curls.  I immediately thought ‘oh, it would be so fun to photograph those wringlets!’  (in an I-do-this-for-a-living, not a weird-lady-in-music-class kind of way, of course).  I was thrilled when Theodore’s mom reached out about booking maternity + newborn photos...

makayla is one!

Oh, guys.  This session.  GoodNESS.   Sweet Makayla’s family moved to Colorado last fall, right when we did.  Through the beauty of social media, Makayla’s mom saw photos on Instagram that I took during my Minnesota mini sessions last October.  Turns out her friend is one of my long-time friends!  Social media totally makes the world a...

what to wear for mommy and me photos

Yesterday I dressed my kiddos in matching t-shirts and and Colin’s preschool teacher told me he spent the ENTIRE class talking about his t-shirt was the same as Jill’s.  At what age do kids no longer think it’s cool to match? In case your kids aren’t as excited as mine about wearing identically matching t-shirts, I came...

the perfect mother’s day gift: mommy + me photo sessions!

“Smile at Mommy, kids!!!”  [[click]]    … another adorable moment documented from behind the camera. I get it.  That’s where I’m most comfortable too.  Being in FRONT of the camera can be overwhelming: What if my kids won’t behave?  What will we wear?  What if I’m still carrying ten pounds [ok, twenty] from my last pregnancy?  What...

bridget is one!

We love to hate on social media and complain about how it’s become an endless stream of sponsored posts + political rants + Rodan & Fields promos.  But, this photo session right here reminded me of the beauty of social media- for forming and maintaining connections. I went to college with sweet little Bridget Sue’s momma....

3 things that will make your photos less overwhelming

InfoTrend estimates that 1.3 TRILLION photos will be taken in 2017.  Now that our photos are almost exclusively taken on our phones, it’s easy to produce images with very little thought (remember when we used to develop a roll of film, hold on to the keepers and throw the rest away?). A quick scroll through...

online photography classes + 5 free photo tips!

You have adorable children, but every time you try to DOCUMENT their adorableness on camera, they turn into crazy people.  Cheesy smiles, stiff poses, sticking out their tongues, closing their eyes tight, hiding behind furniture.  Does this sound familiar? Or maybe you purchased a ‘fancy camera’ so you could take better photos, but you turned...

kacey + matt I maternity photos on lookout mountain

As you may know by now, we moved to Colorado to be closer to family.  It’s been ONE WHOLE YEAR since we became Colorado residents now (what?!) and we have LOVED getting to know our extended family in town.  Kacey + Matt have been here for years and years and they’ve warmly welcomed us to...

how to personalize baby shower gifts using photos

Friends, I’m on a mission to encourage the world to USE their photos (because who even prints tangible photos these days?).  I like to use my blog and Instagram to share simple ideas for how you can use photos in meaningful ways.  And today’s ideas are truly SO SIMPLE. It can be tough to personalize...

organizing a lifetime of photos

We so rarely print our photos anymore.  It’s the digital age.  Yet, most of us have boxes of printed photos from the past hiding in storage.  On occasion, we see the boxes and think ‘WHAT should I do with those?’  We do nothing.  We see the boxes and think ‘There are some great memories in...

our family yearbook- made with the project life app!

Ok, let’s start this story from the beginning.  When I got my first iPhone, I started taking a ton of photos.  Most of them were silly things, documenting quick memories, and nothing I’d bother printing/displaying.  Suddenly the volume of photos I was taking increased dramatically and I started wondering… ‘what is the purpose of these photos if...

HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

 

Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck. I am a professional photo organizer (yes, that's a thing!) who helps people all over the world make sense of their photo mess through organizing services and self-paced online courses.

 

I want to help you ENJOY your photos again!
