Photos with the Segurs

Poor Stephanie and her family have had to deal with me putting them off time after time because of conflicts and bad weather in Denver. (I don't get there often for shoots.) But after a year, I finally got to meet then and do a shoot for her - and it was a blast! This beautiful family was so much fun - they were hilarious and so much fun and very willing to hike all over the property to find the best locations. And dealt with the cold like troopers! (It was much chillier than we expected!)

At one point, I had to run back to my car for a minute and got back to find them playing hide and seek - Stephanie had lost her husband and kids! (I found them - man, am I good....) They cracked me up.

Here is just a small sampling of the photos I took of them...

The Brahlers - again!

Julie and her family are probably my most loyal customer. They are so awesome to shoot... and just wonderful people. Mark is an amazing dad, Matt is hilarious and Zack is adorable. And Julie is not only beautiful, she's always saying the nicest things about my photos... Hmmm, could that be why I like shooting them so much? Heh!

We met up at my old house (the owners were nice enough to offer it as a place for the photos) and wandered around taking a few photos where we'd done them before. Matt definitely loved to mug for the camera. And Zach loved climbing on the rocks!

Just a small sample of the photos we did that day:

Jessanne is Graduating!

Jessanne, a senior from Hotchkiss, called me out of the blue to do a senior photoshoot for her. Now, I had been debating on whether or not to do senior photos as I'd heard some interesting stories. But Jessanne was an absolute delight to work with! She was willing to try anything and she was so animated and dynamic I felt as thought all I had to do was press the shutter!

Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session:

Thanks, Jessanne and Laurie, I had a blast! And congratulations...

The Rutherfords and the Eldridges

Jess,a good friend who also does a simply amazing job running Little Red Schoolhouse in CB South, bought her sister, Molly, a photoshoot for Christmas last year. After being way too busy for one in the flowers this summer, we scheduled it for the fall. Personally, these are my favorite photoshoots - I just am in LOVE with fall here. And I adore these two families. I had a blast taking photos of them!

Alan and Molly's boys, Alex and Ian, are such great kids and all boy that it was a joy following them with a camera. And Amelia, Tom and Jessica's daughter (my daughter Ellie's good friend), is just so adorable with eyes you can just get sucked into. The camera definitely loves her!!

Here are just a few of my favorites from that shoot:

And just a few more of them....

Thanks again, Jess and Molly. I had a GREAT time with your families!

Fall Family Photos

We try to do family photos in the fall leaves every year - although we aren't always successful. This year, all the family photos of all of us were either blurry or just not what I was looking for. Maybe I'll get someone else to do it next year! LOL!

But the girls were hilarious. I gave Ellie and Sammie some cute little skirts I got in Gunnison on sale and they LOVED them! I let them wear anything they wanted and just shot photos... Here are a few of them.

And, of course, the blurry family photos. Bummer!

And just in case you haven't had enough of the Tippie girls....

Changes in store

Well, my site has been redesigned (including a new logo) and I'm in the midst of working out details to launch my new look! I'm thrilled with the way it turned out and can't WAIT to get it up and running. (If only I could just have someone else set up my site, but I just had enough for the design. Wish me luck!)

A quick preview of the new logo in the meantime is at the top!

My latest gallery showing

Blue Eye

I was thrilled about a month ago when I go and email from the Alpenglow Gallery that 4 of my images were chosen to be shown! I was hoping to get one or two in so to have four chose, well, that just plain rocks....

But the coolest thing - I sold a photo during the opening. I was floored! And ecstatic about it, needless to say.
Wide World (sold!)

Anyway, the show goes through November so please make the trip up the mountain to check it out! You'll find Alpenglow just next to Camp 4 Coffee right as you disembark the bus - in the hallway. Definitely worth checking out - there are some amazing things there!

The Michaud Family

With things so busy for me lately, I almost missed out on this shoot. I had a last minute cancellation and was able to work the Michaud family into my schedule - and I'm so thrilled that it happened! They were so much fun and the setting was just gorgeous. I got to just take photos of the children doing the things children do - my absolute favorite was to photograph! They made it so easy to have such a wide variety of photos... and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Without any further ado, here are a few of my favorites...

And because I just had so many favorites, here is a small slideshow!

Oh! And your Fallöbst wine you gave me was amazing!!! Thanks so much.
