Classic Romance

I love a good black and white photograph, and I loved the heart-shaped back of Claire's gown. More to come from this mountain wedding on Lake Lenore in western Colorado. 

Chloe

Right now she is eight years old, a summer solstice baby, a lover of horses and books, a kind and thoughtful friend, a grateful child, petite, curious. I love to watch her light shine.

If you leap awake
In the mirror of a bad dream
And for a fraction of a second
You can't remember where you are
Just open your window
And follow your memory upstream
To the meadow in the mountain
Where we counted every falling star

I believe a light that shines on you
Will shine on you forever
And though I can't guarantee
There's nothing scary hiding under your bed
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard
of a Golden Retriever
And never leave till I leave you
With a sweet dream in your bed

I'm gonna watch you shine
Gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign
So you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a mother who loved
Her daughter more than I love you

Bright

I think the universe is on my side
Heaven and Earth have finally aligned
Days are good and that's the way it should be

Gateway Canyons Wedding

You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case
It's like a moonbeam brushed across my face
Nights are good and that's the way it should be

Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation?
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
'Cause now I'm shining bright, so bright
Bright, so bright

And I see colors in a different way
You make what doesn't matter fade to grey
Life is good and that's the way it should be

Did you see that shooting star tonight?
Were you dazzled by the same constellation?
Did you and Jupiter conspire to get me?
I think you and the Moon and Neptune got it right
'Cause now I'm shining bright, so bright
Bright, so bright
And I get lost in your eyes tonight

Aspen Engagement

This Texan couple made the most of a wintery day in Aspen for their engagement session. I am looking forward to photographing their Aspen wedding in September at The Little Nell's wedding deck.
