If you go back a few blogs, you’ll see that I did a Colorado newborn photography session for a family that was expecting! After the baby was born, they asked me to come back and photograph their new daughter.
Over Labor Day weekend, Austin and I drove the Top of the Rockies drive to Aspen, and then the next day we went to Great Sand Dunes National Park and Royal Gorge. We drove a lot!! Or actually, Austin drove a lot. We didn’t hike much because I was just 2 weeks out from getting my appendix out, but I was able to move way more than I thought I would be able to!!
I had the pleasure of photographing Zach and Aly’s wedding at Redwood Ranch right outside of Sequoia National Park. Aly and I became friends in 2016—I got to watch her meet Zach, date Zach, get engaged to Zach, and marry Zach!!!
I took photos for this beautiful family in Brighton, Colorado at sunset! Brighton is on the way out of Denver as you go to the northeastern plains. I know a lot of people in Colorado go to the mountains for pictures, but there’s something special about the plains. Maybe it’s from being born and raised in Oklahoma where there’s a big sky, maybe it’s that Austin’s from the plains, or maybe it’s from HATING crowds and traffic, but I love it! You can’t beat the pureness of being able to see the sun set right at the horizon. In Brighton you can still see a little bit of mountains but it’s a lot more open than in Denver itself.
