Hit that Button – Clouds and Horses


On a photo walk the other day, I was greeted with this beautiful image. Lucky thing too because the clouds and wind quickly rolled in cutting our walk short! It’s captures like this that remind me of the beautiful outdoors around me. It’s easy to get normalized to your surroundings, so you have to make a point to hit that reset button every once in awhile.

Here is my latest reset button push.

Spruce Mountain Open Space Trail, Larkspur, CO


Being still new to the area, I am always on the lookout for a new pretty spot to shoot some photos. I just happened to see someone mention this trail on Social Media and decided to pack up and go check it out. I was not disappointed! This is a close, yet secluded open space with some great trails and beautiful scenery. I was on my bike this time and found myself pulling over every, seemingly, 10 ft for a new beautiful scene. Below are a few from that day that start to capture the scene.

Snow? What’s that?


Coming from the deserts and beaches of California, we aren’t too familiar with snow….fast forward to us living in Colorado and that is quickly changing! We find ourselves going outside in heavy snow to just wander around and be in it, which is fun! Totally new life experiences for us that I am glad we will be able to look back on.

People Showcase Showdown!


Tonight I updated the landing page on my portfolio, showcasing some of my favorite people photos! Check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think. I go back and forth with showcasing my people photos and my landscape photos. I hope you enjoy this iteration while it lasts! 🙂

I want to do more work with people in my new state of Colorado. I am definitely not lacking in nature subjects! With this focus, I want to show this side of my work more clearly. I gravitate toward natural light (outdoors) portraits anyways, so the combination of my landscape love and people should make for some fun images.

If you know anyone in the greater Denver area who may enjoy some fantastic photos of themselves or loved ones, feel free to share my name!
