The Birth of Cole Malachy // Castle Rock, CO Birth Photographer

My friend Erin and I met in an online forum for pregnancy and all things related when I was due with my last baby and she was due with her first. Even though we didn’t even live in the same state, we became friends and met up a few times. When I moved to Colorado, I knew it would be even longer before I would get to see her again! March 17th, the morning of her scheduled induction (yes, the morning of!) some of her friends were messaging with me about doing a birth video as a surprise and I decided to pack up my kids and drive to Omaha! It wasn’t until I entered Nebraska that I sent her a photo of the road sign. To say she was surprised was an understatement! My mom lives to close to where she was delivering, so I dropped everything and headed to the hospital.

She had the quickest induction I’ve ever seen and besides the epi not taking full effect for a bit, she labored beautifully. Her one request, that he wouldn’t be a St. Patrick’s Day baby.:)So they held off for a little bit until midnight struck. Sweet Cole was born at 12:59am and is absolutely perfect.

Congrats sweet friend! Love you! The Birth of Cole Malachy // Danielle Good Photography from Danielle Good on Vimeo.

Just look at those perfect wrinkles!!!

The next morning, I returned for a Just Born session and to catch big brother Grant coming in to meet Cole. He wasn’t super interested at first, but then daddy sat him next to momma and Cole and he was very intrigued to touch his toes and little fingers. Then, Cole let out one of his epic double sneezes and sent Grant flying off the bed! It was so sad and hilarious at the same time! Erin says Grant has finally gotten used to the sneezes, so I guess he wasn’t too traumatized!:)

The Birth of Nolan Grayson // Denver Birth Photographer/Videographer

I was so unbelievably excited when I got the email inquiry to photograph my first birth since moving to Colorado. I have been wanting to really get into birth photography and more importantly, videography. I loved meeting this sweet mom and dad when they were just 2 weeks out from their due date!

Two and a half weeks later, I was driving to their home when K-Love’s “Verse of the Day” came on. It was Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Something about it just stuck with me the whole day, and as momma’s labor progressed and I witnessed her immense strength, the verse felt extremely fitting for the day. She was simply put, an absolute rock star. I’m still in awe.

I jumped ship! // Castle Rock family & birth videographer

Gah!!!! I can’t believe I did it. I made the BIG switch. Goodbye Nikon, Helloooo Canon!

Canonyellow
I remember when I first even thought about getting a “nice” camera, the first one I researched was the Nikon d90. It looked cool, seemed to be okay for a starter and had all the features I wanted. At the time, the price tag was terrifying (lol to that now!) so I looked with the next best thing, the Nikon d60. The Canon T1i was also the popular entry level camera at the time. Decisions decisions. Everyone that I talked to said “Go hold Nikon and Canon and just go with whichever feels better in your hand. Then decide.” Off to Best Buy I went and as I stood there in the digital cameras section trying my best to avoid the sales guy, I just held each one. I had NO idea what I was really looking for. I thought, ummmmm this Nikon grip is pretty comfortable. So off I ran to Amazon and clicked purchase.

It wasn’t long before I had outgrown my sweet little d60 and ached for something that would really allow me the room to grow. The D700 seemed to be the camera at the time. Wanting something I could have for years to come, I upgraded! That bad boy was my baby!!! I didn’t go to the grocery store without it. And it remained that way until 2 weeks ago.

You see, I have had this unbelievable desire to produce amazing video fusion movies ever since I first saw the Bui Brothers‘ fusion work here. Not long after, I stumbled across the amazing art of Tara Whitney and Michel Sandy-Borden and I thought “I HAVE to do that!!!” The only thing holding me back was hiring a videographer. Who could I trust? Did I really want to go into business with someone else? How would I know they could produce what was in my mind? I toyed with the idea for almost 2 years! The desire just grew stronger and stronger, but I still didn’t know what to do about it.

When we moved to Colorado, my business was put on hold for all of last year. I felt like a newbie all over again, portfolio building with new clients, making connections, networking, learning about our new surroundings. Then I met Laura from Crowned Photography and the epiphany sort of smacked me in the face. She was creating the most gorgeous birth videos I had ever seen. With one camera. By herself. Why hadn’t I thought of that?? Why was I still thinking I was going to need a separate videographer?

My brother Shane has been trying to get me to switch from the beginning. I’ll never forget when he told me, “Nikons are like PC’s, Canons are like Macs.” For this die hard Apple girl, that was like a stab to the heart! Then he set me up on FaceTime with Vu Bui to talk shop and my mind was officially made up. My Canon 6D was in the mail a few days later! Can’t thank you enough for all the advice Vu!

Saying goodbye to my d700 was sad. I got a little teary packing up all the pieces.

So here I am! New camera in hand and ready to do the darn thing! If you are interested in having your own Just Life movie, Birth or other life event recorded, contact me today! I would love to meet you!

Sledding // Castle Rock Family Photographer

Hello 2014! Today there is the most beautiful snow falling here in Castle Rock! I love the days where we have nothing else to do, but sit in our cozy home and watch it fall. Have I mentioned I sort of love it here?
Our neighbors invited us to go sledding, but since Drew was napping, I decided to tag along alone and take some fun “action” shots of them.
