As the chilly weather starts to settle into our lives, I thought I would reflect on the last sunny days we had and the transitioning of reds, oranges, and yellows, into grays and whites.
Colorado experienced its first snow last week–and it was a big one! We had about six inches here in Fort Collins, and although it didn’t stick, it was so beautiful to watch that night and into the morning.
As the fall semester quickly sets into the swing of things, its the last of many times for the graduating seniors. Its their last semester(s) at school, their last first days, and their last memories in their college career. This time can be a bittersweet mix between nostalgia, excitement, anxiety, and freedom in the future.
As the “official” photographer for all of my family events and holidays, I was basically working overtime all weekend to take pictures of everything going on: bonfires, tubing, and fun in the sun.
I love photography and as I become more acquainted with my own camera and my own skills, I envy those of others as well. I would love to work with National Geographic someday (as some of these fabulous ladies have!) and think it would be a great way to combine my love of travel, writing, wildlife, and photography. When I scroll through Instagram I’m always amazed by what these women have been able to capture in a single shot–so here are 10 female adventure photographers you should follow on Instagram right now!

Congratulations to all the graduating seniors in my life, you’re going to rock it in the “real world”, and you will be dearly missed! Here are some of this years senior portraits I took of an amazing, gorgeous person:

It was productive, active, amazing. And I’m so happy the school year is wrapping up to embark on bigger adventures, but at the same time, I wouldn’t mind reliving yesterday a few more times if I had the chance.

Today, Fort Collins drizzled, poured, and had the sun shining all at the same time. It was the perfect opportunity to put on my favorite magenta rain boots and have myself a small photography shoot. There was just enough cloud cover for good lighting and the rain didn’t get any more intense than a drizzle, which was great for the photos and protection of my camera. A thanks to my sister for taking all these pictures of me!
