Ashley & Kylie are BACK - 4th year in a row!

These two little girls ALWAYS have amazing photos.... and I've been lucky enough to photograph them 4 years in a row. This year their mom said, "I don't know if you can top last year's photos?" But I think we have....

Aren't they adorable? And I love their posed photos, but I always like the candid photos best!

The full slideshow here...

and last year's photos....

Shanna and Glen's Frisco Wedding - Post 2 of 2

Shanna and Glen were married on July 3rd in Frisco at a private home and it could NOT have been a more beautiful day or a more beautiful location! And Shanna in her dress was so spectacular... even their dog Sadie was looking her best!

The purple lupine were in full bloom and the gardens at the home were in spectacular shape. I think it was hard for most guests not to just smile surrounded by all that beauty.

Slideshow is online here. And more images of the celebration are in Post 1 of 2.

Some of my favorite images of the day below:

My friends Shanna and Glen were married here in Frisco over the 4th of July weekend, and boy was it a celebration. Starting with a Picnic at Walter Byron Park the day before, girls night out on Friday, then yoga on wedding morning! Shanna and Glen sure know how to have a celebration!

Also see images from the big day in post 2 of 2.

Evan's Bar Mitzvah at Copper Mountain

I loved photographing Evan's Bar Mitzvah a few weeks ago at Copper Mountain's Copper Station. The ceremony was on the third floor and had great lighting - a photographer's dream with no flash needed!

And to document such a momentous day in a boy's life... I love seeing the seriousness on Evan's face during the ceremony and then some of the silliness and fun later on when it was over! After lunch, the kids went to Woodward at Copper and got some entertainment and exercise!

A slideshow of the whole day is online here.

Nature Photography Inspired by John Fielder

Yesterday we attended a nature photography workshop put on here in Summit County by Colorado photographer John Fielder. It was a really unique opportunity... a small group at John's Silverthorne home... and all as a fundraiser for Domus Pacis.

I have always been impressed with John's photography, and own several of his books. But in recent years really appreciate his dedication to preserving Colorado's wild places, and using photography to help environmental causes and preservation of our Colorado landscapes. And sharing his talents and time for this type of local Summit County non-profit is just another fine example! THANK YOU JOHN!

I'm putting together a slideshow of the day from all of the participants... if they email me their favorite 5 or 10 photos... and hope to have that soon. Some of my favorite photos of the day....
