Hey Colorado, it is still winter, right?

     The last couple weeks in Colorado have been incredibly nice outside. Sunny, warm weather, with clear skies for what seems like weeks on end. So I thought I'd write a blog post remembering a windy, chillier time to remind myself that it is still winter. It's mid February and it's been mid 60's to 70's all week, what is going on here haha?! But seriously, it is still winter, so in theory we'll see some more fresh snow and cold weather down here in the cities, right?

     For Miranda's shoot, we chose to meet up at one of my all-time favorite locations in Boulder, CO. It was a semi-cloudy day (with enough parting in the clouds for great light!), a bit of a breeze, and cold enough for long sleeves and light jackets without getting cold. Definitely a mild day for a wintry portrait session. Something about a winding walking path, dry leaves, patches and light flurries of snow, with the leafless trees reaching into the background really came together on a day like this. Which definitely is a crazy contrast to the weather that we're enjoying right now haha!

     Wardrobe here was great; simple enough but totally perfect. A light pink long sleeve shirt, leggings, and matching scarf with head band. The colors really came together, pretty pink and blue hues of the sky matched the outfit wonderfully. The scarf and headband look like they are super, super soft, who can argue with that? That's what is really great about the milder winter days. We can keep the outfit simple and play it up with the accessories we all love like hats, scarves, or a pretty wristwatch. I know I definitely have a few different favorite beanies and winter hats, what's your favorite wintry or cold-weather fashion accessory?

     This was definitely a fun shoot on a cool day. We had a blast walking around the pathway talking and taking photos. Now Miranda is off to a new job and a new chapter in her life. Her shoot was a celebration of sorts, new beginnings and a new start. I wish her the absolute best as she starts her new adventure. Onward and upward! That's what I love about photography, meeting new people celebrating different things, chapters, and events in our lives. A portrait session is a fun experience and can be a great new adventure to capture something special in your life. If you've got something to celebrate, or are just feeling great about yourself, let's brainstorm some ideas for your portrait session today!

Are you ready for your winter portraits?

     It's about time Colorado! Winter is finally here, which means it's chilly and we get some glorious snow on the ground. It's time to ask yourself if your wardrobe is ready for your winter portrait session. Hats, and jackets, and gloves, oh my. There is something very special about snow when it's falling from the sky and piling up in droves on the ground. It looks and feels like the holidays, throwing snowballs, and keeping warm with cocoa. Winter portrait sessions are a fun way to get outside, whether it's for the kids or for yourself, and capture the vibes of a Colorado winter.

     If you're anything like me, you love your winter wardrobe options. I've definitely got a favorite jacket or two, and I love a warm hat as much as anyone. Sunglasses and gloves? Yeah, can't forget those either. The styles change with the seasons and it's time to break out your winter favorites. Did you pickup a great deal this year in the warmer weather, when everything is on sale? Let's show it off! Your portrait session includes a pre-shoot consultation where we can discuss wardrobe options and plan the vision for your shoot.

     I've more or less lived in Colorado for my whole life, which means I've seen all kinds of winters over the years. Sometimes we get a ton of snow, other years it stays relatively dry. One year might be freezing cold for weeks on end and the next year might be mild and comfortable. That's what makes your portrait session so cool, each year is a unique one. The snowfall, the cloud cover, the temperature, and the sunlight are all unique to this season. The great images we capture together this year won't be the same next year, we never know what the next year will bring.

     As always, we're shooting at some really cool locations with a ton of texture. I want your winter themed images to be as awesome as you are, as awesome as your wardrobe, and as awesome as Colorado can be. Imagine looking at a canvas print hanging on your wall, surrounded by snow, in the middle of summer to take you back. Picture your kiddos wearing the cutest hats and jackets, cold air swirling about, printed and gifted to the relatives reminding them what Colorado is like. Are you up for braving the outdoors when it's cold outside? Grab your gear, book your session, and let's style you like only Colorado can.
