This fall our family decided to head for the mountains. The 7+ hour drive from central Kansas can be a bit boring going though western Kansas and Eastern Colorado… can we say F L A T? lol. This was our families first trip to Colorado together. My husband and our youngest had never been. We absolutely loved it and the trip was definitely worth it! The adventure hikes at Twin Lakes and up to Beaver Lake, the smell of spruce, the crystal clear waters of the Eagle River and the fresh mountain air are something I will soon not forget. Even though we were visiting at the weird in between seasons, where the leaves had almost all fallen and the snow had not done much of anything yet, it was still absolutely breath taking.
These are a few of the images I took on the trip to capture Colorado. Most of our time was spent around, Beaver Creek, Avon, Vail, Twin Lakes and Glenwood Springs.
I can’t wait to go back!! Enjoy!
Of the many subjects I have photographed, cows are a relatively new subject. Not that I didn’t grow up on a farm feed them and water them or that I’ve lived in Kansas my whole life and see them everyday, but to photograph them, I just haven’t. A few weekends ago my husband and I went out to the Flint hills as my in-laws have land out there and we like to go hunting and explore the beauty of the land. After our morning hunt we decided to head out and visit grandpa and grandma’s cows. As they followed us, in hopes for us to throw them some apples or pears, they were like little ducks behind their momma as we road around in the jeep. These are just a few of my favorite photos of the herd checking us out as we explored in their roaming field. Such a beautiful morning and so thankful we decided to explore the land. Enjoy! MOOOO
A beautiful Kansas summer afternoon with sunflowers, burlap, barns and boots. Morgan and Lody are probably the most laid back couple I’ve ever met. No stress, just go with the flow and what a beautiful day it was. Morgan and Lody had their closest friends and family join them in an outdoor celebration at Sunny Side Pumpkin Patch in Assaria, KS. With hay bails for seats and wooden hearts to sign for the guest book, the details were just perfect for this young hardworking Kansas couple who we can now call Mr. & Mrs. Black. Congratulations to both of you. I wish you many many years of happiness. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your blessed day. Blessings.
I will be partial to this post as this is my daughter. Adventurer at heart and laughter is a must, she is brilliant and she is beautiful. We frequently travel to the Flint Hills as we have family within 5 miles of this spot. I’ve never taken photos up here other than nature photography, but this weekend, we made it happen. As we were down at the family farm visiting grandpa and grandma, I told Abby to throw in a dress and we’d just see what happens and if we can make time for it. I’m so glad we did. One of my biggest challenges as a photographer has been transitioning from nature photography to people photography and how do I blend them well. How do I make the land look beautiful and the person look beautiful. It’s a balance as one cannot overtake the other. She’s just beautiful and this place, well you can see. Blessings.
So excited for wedding season to start! This was taken last night after the wedding rehearsal. Congratulations Jeffery and Calisa! Praying today is full of love, peace and joy!
