Senior Photos!!! Jackie

I had the privilege to photograph the lovely Jackie a few weeks ago.  It was cold, but we had the best sunset and awesome willingness to sit in a chair in the freeeeezing a sleeveless dress :)  Oh, it was fun!  Jackie is a 2016 high school senior and I couldn't be more excited for her graduating and pursuing a college degree.  She's smart...I mean really smart and we just had the best time :) Thanks Jackie for having me photograph your senior pics!!

This last photo was totally for fun.  She is a singer and brought along some sheet music.....Just for fun :)

Blues Break

Was fun.  Was REALLY fun.  Josh was off of work, the kids were surprisingly on amazing behavior and family fun was all we wanted to do.  Crafts, skiing, sledding....all good.  My kids like to play in the snow.  It's cold people...real cold. Like 20 cold, but the kids love it and truth be makes me feel like a kid, so....I in turn like it....:) hahaha.  Anyway

Good Friends, Good Tea!

I had the chance to catch up with some good friends recently over tea and scones.  I was so grateful to have been able to document the real-life theatrical faces that we have....well, Ashley had them this day, but usually the dramatic faces are mine.  Krysta treated us to a dramatic reading and I got to photograph baby Ellie!!!  She is so much fun to photograph because you don't always know what you are going to get.  It was a lovely morning in Krysta's new kitchen....grateful for good friends. :)

Sleepless in Denver

I am currently looking through old photos of mine and seeing what kind of butcher work I did on these 5 years ago.  I mean, every photographer when they start has a very different look to their images compared to now.  It's a constant work in progress.  I love to see where I have been to where I am now to where I want to go.  I have had mentors and friends who have come along side me to help shape the photographer I am today.  I have so much further that I want to go, but I'm grateful to those who have lent me a hand along the way.  I only hope I can do that for others.  Enjoy photos I took 5 years ago and have re-done. :) 

"Can I swing by for 1 shot?"

This is what I said to Hilary last week, "Can I swing by for 1 shot?".  I had an idea of double exposure.  Anyone know what that is?  In the film days you took one image and put it on top of another to create this cool effect, double exposure.  I have always been intrigued by this style and tried to figure it out with just my digital camera.  I have done this before in Photoshop, but never within my camera.  Most DSLR's these days have this capability in the menu settings.  On the Nikon this can be found by pushing Menu, then click on the camera icon and then it's at the bottom (Multiple exposure).  Anywho, I called Hil and said, lets play.  It was super short notice, but I showed up and she looked like she was about to step out to NYFW.  Sheesh!  Lucky for was time to play!

Playing in the snow with Danielle!

I got to play in the snow with my two friends Danielle and Susie on Tuesday.  It was a fun time of climbing a mountain to get to our desired location.  Not only did we hike in 17 degree weather, but it was all single track.  Not the easiest of locations to get to, but worth every step.  When everyone tells you it's the "slow" time for photographers, take the reins and get to step'n.  Danielle was a dream to photograph and my new friend Susie was awesome to work along side.  What shall my next shoot be?........
