An Homage to Mrs. Roper

I did a super quick photo shoot with my BFF Jennifer yesterday! I love to sew, and when she asked for a Mrs. Roper-esque caftan for Christmas, I was all over it! This crazy fabric is actually an old duvet cover. I must say, that green looks fabulous on her! Anyway, because of the lockdown I haven’t seen Jenn since the end of March. I was so happy to be able to spend a few minutes with her taking these pictures, and she stepped up to the plate by accessorizing Mrs. Roper style, with a super fly 1970s necklace borrowed from her mom (who I’m certain gave Mrs. Roper a run for her money back in the day), a snazzy green purse, and those awesome shoes.  Love you Jenn! Thank you for being my model for a day, you look great in your caftan! 

Engagement Portraits in Rocky Mountain National Park :: Liz + Michael

Rocky Mountain National Park engagement portraits

Rocky Mountain National Park is an especially wonderful location for engagement portraits, don’t you agree? Liz and Michael are planning on getting married in September in Golden, and I for one can’t wait. We did their engagement pictures in early March at RMNP, one of their favorite places, and it was a perfect, sunny, early spring day in the park. Just gorgeous!

A Custom Designed Heirloom Album for Lauren and Ben

Colorado Springs downtown wedding Lauren and Ben

I delivered Lauren and Ben’s custom designed wedding album to them last week, and they couldn’t be happier! Theirs was one of the more unique weddings I’ve ever documented, and their sense of humor and personal panache really come across in the photos. I’m so glad they’ll have this beautiful token of their big day to share with future generations.

Senior Portraits in Old Colorado City :: Mary

senior portraits in Old Colorado City

Just wanted to share these beautiful senior portraits in Old Colorado City that I made of Mary, whose family has come to me for years for their photography needs. In fact, Mary is their FIFTH high school senior, and there’s still one to go! (Henry, see you next year!) We also drove to the Manitou Springs Penny Arcade for a few fun shots. Isn’t she pretty? I think so!

Fashion Editorial for Safron Boutique

I did a great fashion editorial shoot this week with FANTASTIC clothes and jewelry from Safron, my favorite boutique in Colorado Springs. If you’ve never shopped there, I urge you to check it out! Speaking as someone who’s shopped in major cities like London, New York and Paris, I assure that Safron holds her own in little ol’ Colorado Springs. Her location is 2511 W Colorado, in the OCC.

Model: Kyra Fong
Hair/makeup: Thuy Unbehauen
Wardrobe: Safron of Manitou Springs
