Family Portrait

I love the warmth of fall. Even shooting at noon, great light can be found. I had a great time with this family, getting to know them and capturing their energy.
Thanks guys!

3 Years Later…

Almost to the day. They have grown! It’s hard to believe it was 3 years ago that I had my first family portrait in Colorado. Wow, time sure does fly. Even though I am not quite ready to get back into shooting to make a living, I am excited when I get the chance to flex my creative muscles. I’m sure my kids appreciate me not using them as guinea pigs too. Ezra especially has become very reluctant to be photographed. He whines and complains the entire time. Can’t tell, can you? That’s just shows how deceptive the camera can be.
Case in point… little girl didn’t want her picture taken. She was fighting it the entire time. Can you tell? Sure, there are only a few images of her here. But really, I only caught a hand full of pouts and maybe two grimaces. Sure she didn’t perform as a rock star in the last batch of images, but really… her attitude is so rock and roll it works. Even a tough cookie can photograph well. Especially one as cute as this:

The light and color were making me swoon.

A few minutes later…

The transformation is complete.

Gift to mom… at least one smile. I think we got a few. Thanks W.X. Last time we had to wrench it out of him.

Almost 3

Today’s shoot began with a sweet boy and an oh so sweet dog. I actually couldn’t get over how sweet this dog was… I know little boys are sweet, I have two of them. But dogs.. typically they aren’t this sweet.
I love this age. Being almost 3 we had lots of fun together.
Some smiles had to be tickled out of him.
I love this shot. He was telling me about the horses in his BIG book.

To the Dogs

I had a great time this afternoon with these guys.  Oh, and the people were nice too.  After almost an entire week of sub zero weather, we could actually go outside without jackets.  That’s Denver for ya.  The sun is out and the temperature is up.  Thank goodness it hadn’t been warm long enough for the snow to melt.

I don’t know dogs very well, but these three were beautiful… if only a bit young and restless.  I know what that’s all about.  I have three who are equally tireless… although of the human kind.

We began tame, trying to get the obligatory family portrait done before we let loose.

I love this one.  Yup. we live in the West.  The red sand proves it.

So sweet.  This little girl has lots of energy… made me wish I was a dog whisperer.
