Anyone that knows me, knows full well that I am always looking for a good excuse to head west and get lost in the Rockies. In the beginning of December, I decided to jump in my Suburu and make a trip out to Colorado Springs to spend a few days in the most adorable tiny home. I had a session booked with these two cuties and after our time at Garden of the Gods, I just absolutely had to invite them over to capture a few lifestyle shots in this cozy space.
My time staying at the Golden Egg Cottage was exactly how any little escape should be. And yes, that’s what the tiny home was called- so cute, right!? The owners, Jason and Darlene, have a daughter that has a malformation in her brain and has had to endure multiple brain surgeries to correct it. Because of this, they lovingly refer to her as the “Golden Egg” due to how much her medicals have accumulated to be. This tiny home is helping to offset her medical bills and is also their nest egg for early retirement so they can spend more quality time as a family. Not only do I think the Golden Egg Cottage is just the coziest little dwelling, but I absolutely love the story of what this space stands for.
After spending a few days alone in this tiny home, I walked away feel so refreshed and inspired. It had me thinking a lot about the concept of space and material. I love that tiny homes have become a social movement across the globe. I’m all about living a more simplistic lifestyle in order to create more space for opportunity and experiences with the people I love. Anyone else?!
So glad I could share the space and capture these moments with Morgan and Jake!
