I love the mood and feel of this image. It reminds me of strength and courage through an oncoming storm. Regardless of whether or not we have prepared for it, it's about having enough faith in oneself to believe you will overcome it. Another moody image, I can't help it. My lovely daughter is a pro by now in modeling for me and is such a joy to shoot with.
On another note, I know I have been SO behind here on Flickr. I have missed seeing your beautiful images and am going to attempt to play catch up tonight! I NEED to play catch up as I am running low on inspiration tonight and you all are an extra big dose of inspiration. I hope you week has gone well and you are riding out any storms that have passed your way. Much love! xxoo

I accidentally released this yesterday before I was ready so please forgive me for re-posting it! Thank you all so much for the amazing and overwhelmingly positive feedback on my latest announcement. If I was having any second thoughts you guys really bolstered my resolve. Each and every one of your kind comments went straight to my heart. I thank you all so much!!
I really love this image! I don't know if its okay to say that when it's my own but when I am feeling something so strongly while taking and creating an image then when I'm done with it I have a certain attachment, It re-stirs those feelings when I look at it again. And if you haven't already recognized "the road", this is my favorite road. The road I have many shots of including the one of my youngest son in The Traveler and Silent Storms. Hopefully this pictures resonates with you the way it does with me.

Hello my friends,
I hope your weekend has been amazing and you are ready to start your week! I am excited to start this week as I have finally started a venture I have been planning on for a few months. After being contacted by more and more people interested in using my services I finally decided to officially open up a photography business on the side. I am SO excited about this. I am so humbled and ecstatic to meet people who enjoy my work and feel like my style of photography meets their needs and wants for portraits. I couldn't have gotten here without all the kindness and support you all have shown me here on Flick. So thank you for being with me on this journey!! This photo is from a recent shoot last weekend. I had so much fun with her!! I am scheduled out for another shoot with her in a few months and I can't wait.
If you have the time I would SO appreciate some love on my new Facebook page. Hope I see you there!!

Makes me happy <3

One of my favorite songs. We have had some crazy weather here. 65 degrees one day and then snowing the next! This particular picture was taken last weekend on a gloriously warmer evening. This field is the same field I took a picture of my daughter in last year (Golden Moments in Time). It was so fun to return to the same spot and get some fun shots with the kids. The sunset was brilliant and I got tons of shots of the kids turning and twirling in the sun rays which created all sorts of fun sun stars shining through arms and hair. It was superbly fun! The sunshine amped me up for the rest of my weekend. I spent Sunday in Pueblo visiting my Grandma and then did another portrait session while I was there. It was so difficult seeing my Grandma in her frail state. I wish i could scoop her up and take her into these gold fields for the same kind of sunshine magic.
When I was leaving with all five kids my Grandma feebly hugged me as I bent down to kiss her head. "You coming was better than any Christmas present ever." she said. My eyes still sting. We live about two hours away from Pueblo but this visit made me determined to bring the Sunshine to my dear Grandma again this coming weekend and for as much as I am able. Something small like a well timed visit, or a long overdue letter in the mail or even a phone call can do wonders for someone you love. I hope your week is being filled with Sunshine both by nature and by all those who love you. Sending MY love your way! Happy Wednesday everyone <3 xxoo

This is a stretch of road out in Strasburg that calls my name when the storms inside rage. Honestly if I could find a house to plop out in the middle of that vast prairie I would. Sitting there I can close my eyes and hear the somber whispers of the wind. It is somber but there is no reproach. Instead the wind flows soothingly over and around me til the storms began to quiet down much like a fussing infant that finally drifts to sleep. The clouds come and go and although time passes it's as if it has stood quietly next to me watching itself in another life. I've never followed this road to the end, surprisingly I have no idea where it goes! But I'm ok with that for now, as the old quote goes in my own words of course, it's not the destination that matters only the steps we take to get there.
