Those I Love

A year and a half ago I listed several projects I wanted to photograph in my creative journal, thanks to Deb Schwedhelm’s workshop.  One that has stuck in my mind I had entitled “Those I Love”.  Since leaving the Boston area (where we had made so many of our good friends) I have dreamed of traveling across the country and the world to visit those that I have loved.  So I made a list.  This list includes friends here in Denver, friends from High School, friends from College and Baltimore.  All those who have touched me at any time in my life.  The list is long and would take nearly forever to photograph. My first would have been this lady, second this guy and his family.

Friday I was able to hang with another of those on my list.  This crew: #ThoseILove #DenverPhotographer

We got to hang with the boys a couple weeks ago at BMX camp, but Friday we spent some time with them all. It was only a little while with everyone at their house and on our way home, I heard Zed complain “We were only there for like 10 minutes.” I reminded him that we were with them for about 4 hours.

I hope that while I’m in California I can connect with my friends now living in Mexico and old friends from HS at my reunion. Yes, I’m an old lady. It’s official.

what they love

When I arrived and began photographing it soon became evident that this stoic boy and crazy monkey girl are really and truly the same kids I photographed way back when.  I had a great time spending time with these guys.  It is always nice to spend time with friends. #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer #documentaryportraiture #DenverPhotographer



The Gift

I photographed some friends before leaving for camp last week. I let mom know she was going to get in at least one shot. Then this happened and my heart melted.

We hiked in a bit of paradise. I talked about my obsession with wild cats when I was younger… he listened. It was golden. #ColoradoFamilyPortrait
