I often get asked about cropping options when printing photos. It can be a bit confusing when you are trying to decide between a 5×7, 8×10, 8×12, etc.! So, here is a handy dandy guide to let you know how images come out of camera (full frame) and how different size prints end up cropping the image. Hopefully it is a clean and easy way for you to see how an image will be altered when printed in different sizes. Luckily my new (almost ready) proofing site will let you visualize the crop before submitting… Read More »
As I was going through my 2013 weddings, I realized that I posted my digital images of Kristin & David’s beautiful wedding at Catamount Ranch, but never showed you what my foray into shooting film at a wedding turned out like! Some of you may have read my post about my little adventure & self challenge of going “backwards” or back to shooting film, in an effort to slow myself down and really look at things before I release the shutter… if you haven’t click on over here to get all the details on why… Read More »
I realized that I have never really showcased any final wedding album designs, so I thought that I should start sharing some of them! First up, I will share Kate & Ralf’s beautiful album. Their wedding day was some much fun at the picturesque Redstone Inn! The complete wedding album ended up being a 42 page, 12×12 flush mount album. To add the finishing touches to the album they chose a black leather cover with kate + ralf in modern font imprinted on the spine. They also chose to use one of my favorite holga images… Read More »
Its always a joy to do newborn sessions. I forget just how small they are, despite the fact I am only 2 years post having a little bundle of my own. I am so grateful to all of you who ask me into the special times in your life. It is a great honor to capture it all for you to remember long after the sleep deprived nights are over, and this newborn stage is a distant blur, as you are whirling through toddler-hood. Thank you for inviting me to photograph your darling family again…. Read More »
From the first time I met with Lauren & Travis, I knew that I would love working with them. They are fun loving, adventure seeking & so easy to be around! I had the best time with them outside of Minturn Colorado during their engagement session. Their sweet pups joined us, and their 16 year old girl was a trooper tromping through the snow with us! I love clients who embrace the outdoors and aren’t afraid to get a little snowy…and Lauren & Travis were no exception. I absolutely can’t wait for their ranch… Read More »
I thought this was a great post to use to wish all of you HAPPY HOLIDAYS! I wish you all the most relaxing Holiday Season…find time to step away from screens, cuddle the ones you love, create memories and reconnect to what really matters….that is what I plan on doing! I had the great pleasure of working with Mick at Fort Collins Christmas lights again this year. Their motto is wonderful and true- “Let us do the work, so you can enjoy the season!.” Mick and his team have installed our lights for the last… Read More »
Phew… what a great fall it was. Again, thank you to all of the families who took part in my Mini Portrait sessions. It is always so fun to catch up with you and to meet those who I have never met before. Here is the final batch, from the afternoon that got rained out… I hope that all of you have a terrific holiday season! And a couple more film shots to round out the mini sessions!
An additional morning of mini sessions was added when the first three dates filled up so fast. I snuck in a few extra sessions to capture these great families.
Today’s weather held out for half of the day… and allowed for some beautiful diffuse light (not always typical for Colorado). Thanks to all of these wonderful families for braving the weather!
Another stellar day in the fields of Fort Collins with these spectacular families.
