OOF!

Yeah, that's how I feel.
I don't think I've stopped feeling full since yesterday morning. Thanksgiving, love everything about it except standing on the scale the Sunday after. Yeah, that's where that OOF comes in, right?
Please be kind, Mr. Scale. Let's be friends this year, shall we?
Little late for Halloween, but monsters are cute anytime of the year. This one was for a friend from my teaching days- monsters and boys fit so well together. :-)

Back on the Train

Oh blogging...
How I miss thee.
Time just escapes me sometimes, sheesh! I'm actually backed up in my blogging- starting to understand what it's like for "real" photographers who never have time for blogging. Better then the alternative, where I'm scraping the barrel for something to write about. Not that I, uh...was ever uncool enough to do that....ahem....

This family was SO easy to work with. All of the kids were just smiley and sweet and the parents just the same. That is until we tried to get from point A (the oval on CSU campus in Ft. Collins) to point B (an old hotel maybe two or three miles north of there in downtown Ft. Collins) at 5:30 in the afternoon. First we got stuck behind a 15 min. train (seems a lot longer while you're sitting there waiting)- let me just say whoever runs the train schedule is a madman. Who in their right mind lets a train THAT long block traffic during rush hour in the busiest part of town??? Madman train scheduler, that's who. Then we got stuck in a section of downtown at a light that changed at least 4 times before we moved an inch. Yuck. When we finally started moving, we may or may not have made an illegal turn to get to our location out of sheer frustration from being in traffic so long.
Don't tell anyone.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun and I love some of these images. Fall. The Oval. Beautiful warm weather. Beautiful family. The next day was the megga snowstorm that smashed all the trees to pieces all over town (including our backyard trees....poor old friends, they hung in there, but it was ugly...), and The Oval definitely looked much different after that.
Stay tuned, got more a' comin'...

I heart faces photography challenge- Black


Okay, I know that the horse is actually white, but there is black in this photo! This was a shoot I did not too long ago and is likely one of my all time favorite maternity shoots I think I've ever done. She decided not to do pictures with her horse (a European horse, no less- this love-bug was flown over from Denmark, where she is from) initially, but while we were out at their ranch her husband suggested that we just take him out for a few pics since I was there. Let me tell you, I am SO glad he suggested it. The shots of the two of them were incredible. Sunset, mountains in the background, open range...couldn't get much more glorious than that. I just love the intimate moment in this capture.
Check out some more amazing photos incorporating the color black by clicking on the button below! Creative challenge this week for serious. :-)
Love
