I just realized how many months I am behind on blogging. Oy. Will get back to it in a few weeks. For now, just a few previews.
The afternoon was gray, dark and rainy. But then the sunshine appeared and this is what happens after the rain.

I love this session. Alicia was amazing through out the afternoon, although it ended up being a pretty cloudy afternoon she lit up the world around her. The sun did shine for about 2.375 minutes – and we took full advantage of that.
But perhaps my favorite part of the session was that Alicia was doing it for herself. She had the originally asked me to do head shots for her for a more robust and vavoom resume; but then she wanted to play. A girl needs no excuse to have a photo of themselves that makes you do a double take. I love that I can provide that through photography. Because a good photo of yourself, one that allows you to see a glimpse of something extraordinary that you missed that morning in the bathroom mirror…well, that photo can do a lot.
I know a lot the photos are of Isabella all statuesque and model-like, but what can I say, the girl knows how to work the camera! But she beams with personality, is super funny and easy to be around and she’s a dancer. Yeah, she’s way bendy and makes me feel like such an old lady because all I can think is “ouch! my back!” – But it was way awesome to photograph!
The light was amazing and it was one of the first warm afternoons after the brutal winter. I am grateful for warm weather. It makes me happy. And this post makes me happy and I hope it makes you happy too. :)
Isabella, thank you for being awesome and (possibly, but most likely) invading a homeless persons home for the sake of photography. And for stepping into the frigid water. I would have never done that, but apparently I’m an old lady and my arthritis might have kicked in.
ALSO!!! FORT COLLINS SENIORS! The first 3 senior to sign up for a portrait session with your truly gets a free 11×14 canvas from your session. Please contact me if you’re interested and we can discuss details! :)

Ok, now you get your reward for reading so patiently ;)
