Broomfield Senior Pictures, Brodie

I was so tired on the morning we did Brodie's Senior Pictures, the night before I had been in Boulder doing Senior Pictures and I didn't get home until after 9pm.  So that early morning 'get up and do it again' alarm was very unwelcome.  But the minute Brodie and his mom walked up they were upbeat, excited and obviously awake.  And it wore off on me!  I love when people show up excited!  I quickly forgot how tired I was.  
Brodie was just awesome!  He was so upbeat and has a great sense of humor - especially at the barn...  You'll see why....

 How I have been so lucky to have 2 Seniors running through water is beyond me!  I love it!
 There is this barn.  It is a super fabulous barn that I wish I could purchase and turn into an event center!  It is marvelous.  Well, it was until this day...  Brodie's mom was walking around inside and announces that there are doll heads (queue the screaming from all doll head haters) in the corners of the barn.  And as if that isn't creepy enough - someone has drawn faces on them with sharpie, they are porcelain heads and one head is actually a doll and hanging from one of the rafters (WARNING! there is an image below.)  Maybe we should have ran... But we didn't.  Hind sight tells me we should have.  Nothing happened, no snakes, owls, bats or hidden homeless people armed with sharpies jumped out at us.  But in a horror movie.... Well, things would have been different.

As you can see, he is still happy and not creeped out.  Perhaps I should have done some with him screaming and running for his life...  But that would be a whole different kind of Senior Picture Session...

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…
