Brighton Senior Pictures, Zach

I feel like Zach's pictures were 3 different kids.  There was the Soccer/Snowboard kid and then the funky, paradoxical kid and then the car kid.  Maybe I shouldn't say kid...  young adult.  I think his parents are very lucky to have such a dynamic, interesting young adult!  I'm sure there are no dull moments with him.

 I love the colors!  And Zach's snowboard is so photographicable.
 I love this one!

 I really love this one!  And probably looks more like snowboarding than the rest.

 This is one of my favorite places to take pictures!  It just smells baaadddd!  But I was glad that Zach wanted to do pictures here, because it is such a great spot.  And I was surprised at how bad it still smells with the cooler weather.  I think it is all the bat and owl stuff inside.

 We were so lucky that a train came by!

 As we were walking toward the car to drive to another spot, Zach says 'just so you know, sometimes the brakes fail when the car reaches high speeds.'  I did falter a bit, I was thinking well it can't be that bad - can it?  His parents wouldn't really let him drive a car that brake's failed, at high speeds no less - would they?  And as I was thinking about that, he was chuckling, because it was a joke.  So he has a sense of humor too!
 I love this one too!

Brighton High School Pictures, Faith

We did Faith's pictures at Golden's Historic Park, it was such a fun session.  I love Faith and her family, they are so down to earth and such marvelous people!  It was really nice to go around the park with them and chat.  This fall, during South Africa's summer they are going back to do more senior pictures (I wish I was going!  Can you imagine?? What fun that would be!)  Faith was born there and she spent a lot of time in her Aunt's garden, so they wanted to go back and have her picture taken in the gardens.  I think that is such a sweet and touching thing to do.

 I love her laugh!

 There was this moment where some boys walked by and Faith's mom was teasing her about liking their shoes, but I don't think it was their shoes that Faith was smiling so big about.  I just love her big smile!  She is so beautiful!
 At this point, I think she was laughing because she was so happy we were done.  I think she was tired and done with me taking her picture long before …

Denver High School Pictures, Cala

Cala is one of my High School Models and she is freaking adorable!  We had so much fun at Little Man Ice Cream!  I love how excited she was about ice cream and doing pictures!  And eating ice cream at 10am is really not that bad, I could get used to it.    I love her laugh!  I love the bubbles! 

 These were so much fun!  And the people who work there were amazing! 

 I love this one!  These were so much fun!  I love the old roller coaster car, I can't believe that people actually rode in those!  I hope there were cushions on them or there would have been a lot of super sore backs.  Cala has such a beautiful smile!  Such a happy fun young lady!

Brighton Portraits, smoke bombs trial 1

Trial 1 - 3 smoke bombs. 8 minutes. 5 usable images. 2 soooo cool unusable images (I am crying that they are out of focus. Like really REALLY crying.) 3 almost "there" images. This has been an expensive learning experience! I am so grateful for my family helping me out with all my crazy ideas. And I apologize to my neighbor who came home to a cloud of purple super smelly smoke.
Trial 2 - soon. Here's to hoping there is no wind!

 I like the look of the white smoke bomb as it blew away. 

 I love these!  But they are out of focus, it was too dark and smoky for my camera to focus.  I thought I had it in focus, but it was too smoky to tell.   I learned a lot tonight.  Like always do it in the day light hours,  have people stand farther away from the smoke so they don't have to smell it, and have more day light than you think you need.  And on top of that, one of the funniest things happened, we meet a new neighbor across the purple smoke. He was coming home with dinner, as…
