I like to take my camera with me to document things besides weddings, newborns, or other people's families. And maybe get some photos of my little ones for once that aren't on my iPhone. Living in Northern Colorado there are a plethora of activities to do on a daily basis. Now that it is summer the Farmer's Markets are in full swing. The Berthoud Farmer's market has one of my favorite vendors there, The Cookie Sheet. They make the most delicious shortbread cookies. They have a cookie decorating table at their booth from time to time. A girlfriend and I decided to take the kids and check it out. The kids had a great time and they got to decorate three cookies each. Of course I ate two of them during nap time because you know, a two year old doesn't need all that sugar, am I right? Have you had their cookies? Let me know what you think!
Molly and Michael got married in Del Norte on Michael's family's property. Having traveled to the area multiple times a year for most of my life I knew just how beautiful that area is. The ceremony site was nestled in a grove of trees backing up to the Rio Grande river. An outdoor summer wedding can leave your guests parched, but Molly and Micheal had drink ready for those in attendance. They even brewed a special beer for the occasion. Afterwards their reception was at the Windsor Hotel in Del Norte. The courtyard reminded me of a little Italian villa.
As photographers, we love to get out and play. Shoots that are just for us allow us to stretch our creative legs and take risks. And it's always a pleasure to meet new colleagues. A lovely group of women photographers met up to snap some photos of each other with the beautiful spring blossoms here in Northern Colorado (Fort Collins). Here are some of my favorite images I took that day! I linked each photographer's website though so you can learn more about them!
