Castlewood Canyon E-Session with Hanako & Eddie

On Saturday the weather finally worked out for our engagement session with Hanako & Eddie.... well sort of. It seemed that whatever day we picked for pictures the weather kept changing our plans for us. Finally we settled on trying for this Saturday despite the weather forecast calling for rain. Although it was a little chilly the sun did make several appearances throughout the day and we got some great photos with them. We'd really wanted to get a few photos out at the old dam that was destroyed many years ago in Castlewood Canyon. It was quite a hike but they were great sports and at least the hike kept them from getting too cold. Hanako & Eddie really know how to have fun with each other and goof around. I love catching pictures with couples just having fun and being themselves! Eddie brought along his gun (don't worry he's licensed to carry it) and I took this snapshot of the two of them with Eddie's camera. They look like trouble don't they???

Annual Turkey Hunting Trip

I made it home alive!!! But... the turkey didn't. Every year my dad and I go on a trip to Valentine Nebraska for turkey hunting. While everyone else was enjoying the snow here in Colorado, we were enjoying fog and rain. Fortunately we didn't stay out in the cold, wet weather for too long. Within 10 minutes of our weekend hunting trip it was 1 turkey down- 1 to go. And an hour later the planned 2 day hunt was over and we didn't even make it to lunch on day one. After I got my bird I took out the good old camera for a few pics of my dad in action. What kind of photographer would I be if I didn't bring along the camera for some pics?? Here's a few photos of my dad, the turkey before he became this year's Thanksgiving meal, and ME!

Photographers in Front of the Camera!

Last week Tyler, Erin, and Michelle & I headed downtown for some headshots. This time however, the photos were not of clients but of US! It's kind of a strange feeling being on the other side of the camera. We took turns being the subject while the other two photographed and at first none of us wanted to volunteer to have our picture taken. Erin kindly nominated me to be the first subject but she didn't get to stay behind the camera for long. Before we realized it it was almost 9:00pm! As a photographer you get so used to trying to make other people feel comfortable in front of the camera so it was nice to put myself in their shoes for once. Since it was all just for fun for the most part we took our time and experimented with lots of different lighting situations and had so much fun just being goofy. Here are a few shots we took during the night. Don't we all make such great models???:
