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.

 

My snow princess!

Teaser – more to come


I recently had the opportunity to spend some time with my friend Darlene and create some awesome images. We were treated to a beautiful Southern California evening in Laguna Beach. There are a lot more from this shoot that I can’t wait to share, but for now here is one to hold you (and me!) over.

As the sun was setting it cast a beautiful golden light that really made Darlene’s eyes pop. More soon!

That [brotherly] awkward moment


I like this photo. And not for ANY of the reasons you may be thinking! You see, this is my brother. This shot captured the moment when it hit both of us that we are down at the beach taking shirtless photos…’sexy’ photos, if you will. And yeah, it was awkward and funny. But hey, that’s what brothers are for, right? Do the things together that you would be too uncomfortable to do with strangers – but in the end it is actually way more uncomfortable. Perfect.

This is Matt and he is my big brother!

Sibling Warfare


This was a 3 second pause from the epic battle these siblings constantly wage on each other. Although constantly battling out the most grand of issues, like “don’t fart on me”, you can see they love each other very much. The kids get it!

Pretty Girl Portraits + Pretty Girl Poll


Catchy title, right? Got you in here! But hey, at least I am not lying.

So I was able to spend some time in the studio a few weeks back and I am just now having the time to share them with you. I was really happy with the way the session turned out. These two lovely ladies happen to be sisters, good genes if you ask me! For this particular session, we did not have an overall theme we were shooting for, but really just going with the flow and seeing what we could create. With that in mind, check it out below and let me know what you think!

BTW, the first and last picture are the same image, just one is B&W obviously. I felt like this particular image worked so well in both styles that I had to show both to do them justice… Poll below for which you like better, I am super curious at which is preferred in the eye of the beholder!

The Capes Family!


If you are following me on Instagram, you would have recently seen an image of me prepping my photo gear for a shoot… well, this is the family I was heading out to hang with! Meet the Capes Family. I fun-loving group who pulled together for mom’s birthday present – these photos! We had a good time and the park that we went to had plenty of beautiful fall colors in action.

Check out the pics below and let me know what you think! Clicking on an image starts the gallery viewer. Happy Fall! 🙂

Maui Portrait


After a good time in Maui recently, I have a few photos I will be sharing. This is a portrait I really liked taken during a beautiful sunset.

Times Past


This chair sits alone in the middle of nowhere, decaying away into nothing. Its current condition speaks to its recent life where all value was lost by those keeping care of it.

But, I cant help but think about this chair’s times past when I look at such a contrast. This chair had a period in its life that saw gratitude from its owners.

Excitement when it was purchased.

Pride when the designer finished his/her design.

Relief  and comfort when sat in after a long day’s work.

Appreciation.

Senior. Portraits.


I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely young lady a couple of weeks ago. These are not her official senior portraits, but they are portraits…and she is a senior…so…. yeah. Anyways, it was a blast and I am happy to share some with you.
