Rocky Mountain National Park in the Fall Sunshine!

I've just returned from 3 days in Estes Park for a yoga conference and got to spend some beautiful time in Rocky Mountain National Park. My return route was through the Park, and I had enough time to take the Old Fall River Road - an absolutely beautiful scenic route if you have time.

These first few images and the elk photo were taken along Old Fall River Road....but it is a single lane one way road windy mountain road with switchbacks. The speeds are usually 5 or 10 miles an hour so you need time to enjoy the scenery.

Another highlight of my trip was a stop in at my favorite mountain resort and spa, Gold Lake Mountain Resort. It is 5 miles down a dirt road outside of Ward, Colorado. There are rustic cabins, and an amazing restaurant. A private lake and spa services. This place is heaven on earth!

Katie's Favorites at 18 months! Check out her new website!

Katie has her favorites....her favorites of everything! And at 18 months, she is so certain of what she wants (that's in a good way) that the family has started selling some of Katie's Favs!

Each item has been personally tested and proven by Miss Katie! And there's even a PARENTS FORUM on the website! Check it out!

When Katie came for her 18 month photos, it was the usual thing we've seen before in other portrait sessions...... Katie always starts out very very shy! I never think I will pry her out of Daddy's arms...but by the end of the session, only an hour later, she's performing and dancing and eating up the attention!

I could photograph Katie all day everyday and not get tired! I also think she has so many great facial expressions, her parents should publish a book of "Katie's expressions" - it would be hundreds of pages!

View the whole slideshow here!

And how about these beautiful eyes!


Beautiful Pink Bow....can be PURCHASED HERE.

Ashley and Kylie....beautiful childrens portraits!

This was the most fun childrens portrait session - outdoors at their grandma's house on a beautiful summer day. We actually had to cancel a day or two as it rained the 3or 4 days before! But boy am I glad we waited! Ashley is just an amazing little girl to photograph! She never gets tired of posing.....hopefully Kylie will grow into it & keep her tongue in as she gets older! But it was very fun! And isn't Ashley's red hair & blue eyes the most adorable!

You can view the FULL SLIDESHOW HERE!
