First Blog Post!

Hi and welcome to my blog! I intend to use this blog to post additional photos from my shoots and share current stories on what’s happening in my life! It’s important for me to connect with my clients and blogging is a great way to get to know me a little better before our shoot.
One of the (many) reasons why I love photography so much is that photo shoots are always FUN. It’s a great reason to get dolled up, maybe buy a new outfit or throw your favorite dress on that makes you feel good. It’s an excuse to wear flowers in your hair and run around a big open field. Photo shoots bring us to places maybe we haven’t been before, like the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, or among the yellow aspen leaves in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It’s spending a day at the Denver Botanical Gardens or rooftops of Downtown Denver. I have plenty of location ideas, but I’d love to hear yours too and maybe experience somewhere I haven’t been! Typically, I will scout out the location first, so I know what to expect and we don’t waste precious shooting time when the light is just right.
The absolute best time to shoot outside is the hour or two before the sun goes down. The light is soft and flattering when it is low in the sky, and if we’re lucky, we get a golden glow, or crazy colors of a Colorado sunset. We just changed our clocks ahead, and I rejoice in the hour loss because it means longer days and more shooting time! March has been wonderfully warm weather so far, and I am itching to do some colorful springtime shoots!
