Capturing Your: Heart


You know the expression, “if you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes?”, well, that is definitely the case with Colorado. Growing up in Southern California, I’ve only experienced one type of weather…warm. Ok, maybe it’s not always warm, I mean…after all, we have June Gloom and occasionally we have “Storm Watch” for the trickle the newscasters like to refer as “rain”.  But here in Colorado, it’s a whole ‘nother story! I can wake up to bright sunny skies, by lunch experience whipping winds, and by dinner be outside shoveling 2 feet of snow. And what is even more crazy, is that the weather is very local. I can call Chad who works about 20 miles from our home and he is getting slammed with snow and at our home we have nothing. I love the “pocket” we live in since it protects us from the more extreme weather.

Well, sometimes this crazy fluctuation in our weather system can disrupt a perfectly well thought and planned photo shoot, like it did with this beautiful family. The weather was beautiful, there was still some golden leaves on the trees…but the wind was out of control. So instead of waiting 15 minutes, we waited 7 days to get some stability in our weather for our second attempt. I am so grateful for the families that I work with because they are understanding and know that some things are just beyond our control. I had a great time meeting this fun family and getting to know all the sweet personalities of their children. I absolutely ADORE their little men of the family….they are SUCH handsome little men. And really, why is it that boys always get the long eyelashes? And of course, handsome boys means beautiful sisters! Both McKenzie and September (isn’t that the coolest name?) have radiant smiles and were such sweet little ladies. Thank you Stephanie and Derrick for such a fun time with your family and enduring the not so fun weather. I loved your family’s energy and hope you enjoy the pictures of your beautiful family for years to come!
