Families and photographs

Since the last post was delayed by a month, I'll add another one to the mix.

I've been doing all kinds of things with a still camera lately, but one of the more important ways has been family photographs. Most families are looking to get a great photo of their immediate family to share with other family members and friends for the holidays.

Well, the weather in the Denver Metro area hasn't really even threatened to be winter-like. It's the middle of December and I have yet to see even a skiff of snow around here. The mountains have been getting hammered, but we've just been getting blown around. All that being said, not having much of the white stuff on the ground doesn't make for too many "holiday moments," if you know what I mean. Dead brown grasses and leafless trees don't scream out winter wonderland and Santa. So it's been a bit of a challenge to shoot photos in a nice setting. But the fall colors were fantastic this year, holding out for several weeks and offering up some great backgrounds.

Have a look at these, and if you or someone you know is still scrambling to get some photos together for their holiday cards, let me know. I'm pretty sure we can make something good happen.




From the sounds of it, we are in for a round of the long lost flakes this week. Which will be good, it might make me feel like we're closer to Christmas. I've been riding my bike and running outside so much, that I thought it was still October or even September. But one things for certain, in January we – well Joshua & Co. Photography anyway – have a couple of engagement sessions to be shot on the slopes of a ski resort. So at least I'll get a chance to feel like I live in a climate I'm supposed to be in. And maybe I'll get in a few turns.

Well, until next time...which hopefully won't be as long as it has been. I know I say that a lot, but it's almost a whole new year!!

A fall wedding

Meant to post some photos of my great friends, Ryan and Melora, getting married at Chautauqua Park in Boulder a few weeks ago. Just got wrapped up in...you know. Some things.

Anyway, here's a few of them but pop on over to Flickr and look at the few dozen of them. I didn't shoot all that much and was kind of limited in where I could go. You see, I was an usher for the wedding so I had other responsibilities.
