Underwater Camera

I feel so lucky to have found my passion and to be able to make it my career.  I have the best clients who let me be artistic with their portraits and let me experiment with new ideas during their sessions.  About a week ago the idea of underwater portraits sparked inside my brain.  I did a little research on underwater cameras and decided I’d start with a nice, little, basic point-n-shoot model by Nikon.  Last Friday (the day after my camera arrived) my partner-in-crime/photography Ryan took me to his favorite swimming hole and we played around with this awesome new toy.

The playfulness and joy during our time with the underwater camera at the pool has stayed with me over this weekend…so much fun!

Cassie + Steven | married

Their closest friends and family traveled from all over to celebrate and the Black Forest was the perfect setting for Cassie & Steven’s intimate wedding.     Cloudy skies and raindrops added the right amount of romance and even a little adventure to their day.  Thank you Cassie & Steven for having me capture your beautiful wedding!

The Crowleys | family portraits

Brothers Ben & Will were so much fun to play with during their family session a couple weeks ago.  It was the beginning of our warm weather here in CO so we were all anxious to spend time in the sun!2014-06-04_00012014-06-04_00052014-06-04_00062014-06-04_00022014-06-04_00032014-06-04_00042014-06-04_00072014-06-04_0008
