Flu 2009 appears to have left our home!

Oh my goodness! I can't tell you how over the moon I am this week! I officially have all three children back at school and the baby seems to have come through with flying colors!

Absolutely the worst bout of illness I can remember this family going through in a long while and I don't wish to revisit it any time soon!

I have become even more fanatic about washing hands and using hand sanitizer...but that's not a bad thing right?

So, it looks like once again I am trucking down the road. Now, if only I had all the time I needed to catch back up! Until such time you will be reading late email messages from me, and reading blog posts written at 1 am. But, a photographers got to do what a photographers got to do!

And since no blog post is complete without a few images, here are some of my GORGEOUS cliens from the Danielson Designs Holiday Event in Trinidad, Colorado this past weekend. AND...if you like what you see and are in need of holiday cards, gifts or just an updated family photo it is not too late to schedule a time for your family on November 7, 2009. Just call Danielsons in Trinidad, CO and the great ladies over there can set you up with a time!

Thank you everybody for your well wishes and patience! I will be speaking with each of you soon!








Enjoy! And thank you to all of my clients above who came to the Holiday Event at Danielsons and supported the studio!

Gorgeous Walsenburg Senior - Southern Colorado Senior Photographer

freezing rain....check
frigid temperature....check
heavy fog....check
stunning better believe it! minus the freezing rain, fog, 24 degree temperatures and ice...this was an unbelieveable senior session! I traveled up to Walsenburg, CO this past weekend for a much anticipated shoot! I LOVE...did I say LOVE...senior sessions! They are always so happy and up for ANYTHING!!! I think it has to do with the fact that they are on the verge venturing out into the wide world on their own!

Anyhow...I digress...the session was terrific. We got a little of this, a little of that, a few horses, a dog and an antique loveseat in the middle of an alfalfa field!

What? Yea...she's sitting in a loveseat in her field...wanna make something of it?

And she looks so beautiful I think she could SERIOUSLY be a sock Tyra looking for one of those??

Enough, enough already, I'm sure I have you LOL'ing....hehehe!

Thanks so much to Miss H and her mother! Adventure I am ALWAYS up for and they put up with me every step of the way! Thanks for trusting in me...thanks for saving the newsletter...I couldn't be happier you found me! Enjoy your sneak peek and I'd love to hear what you think! You can leave your comments below!





More Family Fun and Freezing Temps - Raton/Trinidad Family Photographer

This session has been in the works for some months! So you can say I was pretty much completely bummed when we've had good weather for MONTHS and the one day we have scheduled for a photosession...and the ONLY day the whole family is going to be in town it's...well...29 degrees!

The back up plan was to shoot in this family's house and I packed the car with the mobile studio to be sure we had everything we might need for an indoor session with 10 people.

Imagine my utmost joy when they said they were willing to try to get some outdoor shots!! The colors were stunning! It would have pained me to drive away without a single outdoor image.

So we packed the family in two trucks, with heaters on full blast, about 100 yards down the driveway. Each family took their turn in the cold and then hopped back in the car to warm up before the next photo!

All things considered the cold wasn't too bad at all...and I think you'll agree that it was well worth it!!

Thank you Jodi to you and your wonderful family! I had a blast despite nasty ole' Mother Nature. And I think you'll agree that it was all worth it! We definitely would have missed a GREAT opportunity had we NOT gotten a little chilly! Enjoy your sneak peek!
