I was so excited when I drew Amy’s name as the winner of my first Facebook drawing. I’ve known Amy since she was 12 or so when she and my sister became friends in middle school. Shannon and Amy worked at Vail for a winter together, and when Shannon left for NC, Amy stayed to live the ski town life. Good thing, because she met her husband Eric at a date auction (a date auction!!) a couple of years later. Like us, they are settled in suburban Denver with their pup Lily, escaping to the mountains whenever possible. We met up at Chautauqua Park in Boulder last month right before sunset to snap some family pictures. One of the photography skills I’m working on is working high ISOs… It was getting dark fast for this session, and I had to crank my ISO to keep my shutter speed fast enough for Lily! I absolutely love how the higher ISOs give a grain and richness to the photograph. May be finding myself in low light more often on purpose:) Thanks you two!! Looking forward to hut trips and beers with you in the near future!
What do you get when you gather four cousins, a swing set, feather boas, blank canvases, paints, water, and ice cream cones in grandma’s backyard? A huge, awesome mess – and the most fun photo shoot I’ve ever done!
I love working with this creative family, some of whom you may recognize (from this newborn shoot, and this family shoot). These kids get cuter every time I see them! Credit for this awesome paint-themed photo shoot goes to the twin moms. There will be no black and white photographs in this set – the longest I’ve ever posted.
Thank you all so much for such an awesome shoot!
I am officially in love with pugs. My friends Allie and Steve asked me to shoot some family pictures of them and their fur babies ~ Max (the fawn pug), and Lola (the black pug). They have such different personalities! Max is such a lover, and Lola is a little diva. We caught some amazing light at Davidson Mesa in Louisville, which is perfect for pet photography with its wide open trails, mountain views, and fenced dog park.
Thank you Allie and Steve! If you ever need a dog sitter, you know who to call… I think Lola would teach Ryder and Cody who’s boss!
