Neglect party and baking trials and tribulations – Denver, CO Portrait Photographer

I don’t claim to be a great cook. I enjoy the art of cooking and baking. Somehow my recipes don’t quite come out the way I intended them to be. Nuff said.

So what is a neglect party you ask? I didn’t know what one was either until my boss hosted one at his house. In a nut shell, you must bring a dish to the party that was made with something that has been neglected in your kitchen. This can be from a appliance to a small kitchen gadget. Mine? A cookie press from pampered chef the hubs bought for me one three years ago, that was still in the original wrapping. It didn’t take me long to figure out what my neglected item was, as this cookie press stares me right in the face every time I open one of my cupboards, and every time I happily bypass the press grabbing other items with much more importance.

In deciding to finally break out my mad baking skills, I thought it was time that Haylee join in and start learning. Sigh. In my mind I picture her becoming the next top chef, and thinking to herself…it all started when my mother taught me how to bake cookies at the ripe age of 18 months. Silly? I know, but a mother can dream can’t she?

So here we are. Haylee and I. In the kitchen. Attempting to bake.

My favorite part of baking cookies…eating the leftover dough! Yum!

The cookie press worked great and pumped out some pretty cool looking cookies. However, in the end my funfetti cookies turned out to be a flop, just like my banana bread did.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

~ Welcome ~

I'm Angela and I love what I do.

I play many different roles in my life, but boring is not one of them. I'm silly, quarky, completly honest and try to live life to it's fullest. I put my heart and soul into photography and take great pride in my work and making sure my clients leave with beautiful works of art they can cherish forever.

I love natural light photography and love working outdoors, however, I have a dedicated studio with professional grade lighting, props and decors specifically for newborns and young children. I adore creating art with color and light. Client galleries are a variety of work tailored to their preferences and edited to my style.

This was just a little bit about me. I can't wait to meet you and I hope that viewing my work will bring each of you as many smiles as it has brought to me!
