SHS Senior Portraits - Please help vote for Nick's Favorite photo!

Nick is a senior at Summit High School and loves guitar and cars. Maybe I'm just assuming that since he brought both to his senior portraits. But his Dad, Cam, didn't let him drive the Camaro, although I begged! And I called it a Corvette once, how embarrassing!

Nick's slideshow online here...

and we would love you to leave a comment & help them choose favorites. This first one #1 is my favorite as a photographer, but NOT in the running... I can see that since the yearbook wants head & shoulders... but isn't if fun?

OK.. and maybe I like #76... but not for the yearbook?

Summit High School Senior Portraits - Tayla Reller 2012

Tayla met me at Keystone Ranch for her senior portraits - I love all the options out there for backgrounds and natural shots. Once in a while we got a golfer or golf cart behind us, but not very often. I love all these different looks for Tayla - I'm glad I don't have to choose a favorite!

Mayflower Gulch Family Portraits

Mayflower Gulch is a favorite location for portraits located in between Copper Mountain and Leadville. Last Friday I headed up there with the beautiful Morano Family from Dillon. They are neighbors and friends and we had been planning this for several weeks - postponed it once for Mom to deliver a baby, as she's a physician! But this afternoon could not have been more beautiful - and even 8 year old Alex got into the mood after awhile and got rid of that cheesy fake smile!

Dave made me smile on several occasions with his "typical male attitude" towards photos. I could tell Alex was just warming up and Adele was enjoying it, but Dave's smile was getting a little tired. About halfway through I asked Dave, "are you about done with me yet, Dave?" He smiled slyly and asked, "is that a choice you're giving me?"

Dillon Family Portraits

I am still in shock and trying to comprehend that the father, Dave Morano, passed away less than 24 hours after we took these photos. He was climbing a mountain outside Aspen on Saturday and fell to his death. This Summit Daily News article has more details and there will be a service on Sunday September 18th in Dillon.

Dave was a neighbor, a friend, a great husband and father and an amazing mountaineer. This is a shock and a great loss to all in our neighborhood and community. But I am so thankful that the family took time to get family portraits done - the photos will be cherished.

And we will watch over Adele and 8 year old Alex... as neighbors and as a community - and help them continue to enjoy life and the great outdoors as you did Dave. You were an inspiration to us all....

Dillon Childrens Portraits - Katie is Four!

Katie is one of my favorite subjects to photograph - she has so many different expressions, and we've been trying out some "creative photo ideas" in recent months. Last spring we tried Painting Portraits which were really fun, and this month we tried some balloons! As usual, we saw a myriad of expressions. On the dock she was pouting, and I can't even remember why or what she was mad about!

Slideshow online here...

This last one on the right is the "one that got away" - we knew we would lose a few balloons along the way, but Katie got very sad each time one got loose!

Summit High School Senior Portraits - Nick McDonnell FlyFishing Photos!

Photographing seniors that you've known since they were two are really fun! More fun for me! Nick loves flyfishing, and plans to become a flyfishing guide - so it was important for him to don his waders and get some action shots! I always try those at the end of the shoot of course, just in case there's a mishap!
