I always have so many ideas when October comes, but never have the time to execute any of them. Lucky, this year, I was able to get out and shoot a little and get some of the ideas in my head out. The shoot with Izzy only lasted a few short moments, but the lighting in the barn made for very dramatic lighting that fit the spooky falls mood.
I’ve always wanted to see the Maroon Bells in that picture-perfect autumnal state that you always see in the postcards and around instagram. Unfortunately, I happen to not be the 1% that can afford a night’s stay within Aspen, so a couple of friends and I piled into a car and camped at one of my favorite spots in the area to wake at sunrise to quite the scene. The Maroon Bells are always stunning, but even more so when there’s a new dusting of snow and golden aspens lighting up all around the base of the mountains. Needless to say, this is one Colorado bucket list item checked off my list.
This session was spent dancing around empty roads and lots and lots of kisses. The leaves had all fallen but autumn was still holding on before winter and snow completely overtook the landscape.
An engagement session spent twirling around lakes, watching sunsets, and taking in the view of the Rocky Mountains above the treeline.
A session spent looking for a field a flowers and all the frolicking that ensued after a rainstorm had passed. Loads of rainbows, flower petals, and twirling in dresses and rompers make for one of my favorite photos to date.
Time spent running around the wild rocks of eastern Colorado is time well spent. The Paint Mines are one of the small gems in Eastern Colorado with some of the most interesting landscape and geology.
A few snippets of my first time visiting Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National park with the love of my life. It was only a couple nights stay, so mostly it was just a bunch of driving around and looking at things, but next time, we’ll hopefully be able to go on some epic hikes and other adventures.
