I take my camera everywhere! Even on family outings like this one. As we drove up to our favorite open space here in Castle Rock and I saw how beautiful the light was I quickly put on the little button down on my youngest son over his t-shirt just in case he actually cooperated. Wonders of wonders, he actually did! I'm so glad I took the time to hide his shirt. The t-shirt he is wearing under the button down is black with the words "Last Clean Shirt". Somehow I don't think the effect would've been the same!;) I saw a meme online that said" You know your a photographer when you have more pictures of other people's family than your own." HA!! Not this one lol... I upload hundreds of pictures weekly of my own sweet little faces. I think pictures became priceless to me after I lost my sister. My Rebekah </3 One night I was up late going over my favorite pictures of her and suddenly it just hit me, I'd never be able to see a new one. These were all I had. It was an emotional moment. Since then I take images of everything, my little one playing in the cupboard. I even took it into the grocery store to get some shots of my kids pushing around the tiny carts for kids. Priceless!
My 2 cents of the days to a bunch of photographers who obviously do well at capturing moments since your on Flickr!;) Thank you for listening to me anyway. Much love to you all, hope your having a good week!!
xxoo

The last few days snow has overtaken all the beautiful green springing up here in Colorado. We always get that last snow just when you think it's over and I'm never prepared for it. Even after living here for 30 years! Thankfully I hadn't planted any of my spring flowers outside. This morning I woke up to the sun streaming through my bedroom window and the dripping sounds of running water. The snow is melting today despite itself and the lush greenery underneath is peeking through. Such a lovely sight! Despite the harshness of the cold over the past few days, the warmth and tender buds of Spring cannot be held back. Nature always holds symbolic messages for me, I am continually amazed by how encouraged or inspired I am being outdoors and listening, watching and feeling the beauty around me.
My dearest friends, how have you all been? I have been long remiss and have missed you all so much. Today I was caught up on all my portrait editing and found myself looking through my images from last weekend. A client was running late and I took the opportunity to snap some spring beauty. I forgot how much I missed taking pictures of nature and have resolved to make more time for this. I hope you all have been well and are enjoying Spring's return in your corners of the world. Have a fantastic weekend. Much love xoxo
Rachel

Hello friends!
I am popping to share a spring portrait session I took this weekend. My client was just gorgeous! I had so much fun taking these and the weather was perfect. Cloudy skies gave us the moody look we wanted to achieve. I have been terrible about keeping up on Flickr, please forgive me!! I have been so busy trying to keep up with my new est endeavors. Just as a quick reminder you can add me on FB www.facebook.com/rachel.c.brokaw
As I am on there more often because of my business page. I do hope to pop in more frequently but consider me on a short break for now. I hope you are well. Sending love to each of you!
xxoo

If I bring my fragrant spring flowers out next to me while I'm reading (also wrapped in a blanket because it's still chilly!) then it actually pretty amazing, But then I do tend to have a pretty wild imagination and can successfully ignore the puffs of visible breath leaving my mouth. I do need space occasionally and my patio is my getaway! So if I have to pretend then I'd rather be doing that then just sitting outside staring dolefully at the overcast skies. Besides looking at the picture afterwards makes me FEEL springy and that's all that matters:-D I hope you all are having a fantastic Friday. I am excited about this weekend as I have a few new shoots to do. I am working on finding a balance between my new endeavors and the rest of my world - my family! One thing I started doing this week was a photoblog of daily moment throughout the week. I have been so distracted that I knew this week I needed to regain focus on what is most important to me. Doing this photoblog helps me to be in the moment with my kids, cherishing and enjoying our time together and finding contentment in it. I am planning on doing this every Friday so if you'd like to see more from me and also see more of the real side of my life (a.k.a Mom life, real life = less editing! lol) I'd love to have you come by.

In one of the pictures I posted its an image of my 9 month old standing by the patio doors and it was only after I uploaded it I saw all these smear marks all over the glass behind him! Tiny handprints and proof of his presence. I almost didn't upload it and then I thought, No, I'm going to anyway because this is real life photoblog. And in real life my glass doors look like this more often than clean lol. ANYWAY, thank you for listening to my rambling, thank you for your visits and comments and constant inspiration in my life. Love you guys!! xxoo

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
