My name is Kami Vanous and I am a professional photographer based in Littleton, Colorado. I live here with my amazing husband, our two gorgeous kids, a crazy-cute rescue mutt named Jake and our Golden Retriever baby Claire. I grew up by the ocean and still have salt water running through my veins. I never feel more alive than when I’m on the water or the beach. I love dogs, babies, music, coffee, Disneyland, and creating beautiful things.
I began my photography journey in a darkroom with film when I was a teenager and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Pepperdine University. I have spent more than 25 years curating the aesthetic and style I’m now recognized for.
I am drawn to the pure connection that we have with our little ones, the art of parenthood, beautiful milestones and the magic of a woman growing a new life. Throughout more than a decade of photographing young families, I have come to realize how important it is to make and print images of the people you love and to create a legacy. I feel a strong responsibility to take care of my clients and make the entire experience as enjoyable and as simple as possible so you are able to document, print and preserve some of the most beautiful moments in your lives while your children are young.
Your session is a true gift to your family. It’s a time to slow down, connect with the people you love the most and allow sweet moments to unfold. When it’s over, you’ll have handmade, heirloom items that will outlast the test of time and be here long after we are.
Throughout my career I am honored to have won awards and been published for my work in both film and digital arts while gaining extensive experience in styling and design for portraiture, lifestyle and commercial clients.
