Candy Apple Carnival!

Summer is for FUN!  And there's no better end to summer than a visit to your local county Fair!  Fairs make the perfect backdrop for a high school senior photo session.  The lights, the people, the cotton candy, the rides, the smell of horse poo in the air...I love it all!   

Next summer when the fair rolls into town, hit me up!  

Coal Ridge Titans | Samantha

Remember, I told you that the Coal Ridge Titans are graduating tomorrow!  That includes this lady Titan right here, Samantha!  I spent a good part of the winter watching this young lady on the basketball court and if you didn't get to see her play then you totally missed out!  I might be a little bit biased as basketball is my jam ;)  She is also an avid soccer athlete and her and her team had a good season this year as well.  If you see Sam out and about this summer then please congratulate her on her future endeavors!  She will be headed CMU this fall with a few of her fellow classmates. 

Congratulations, Sam!!

Rifle Bears Senior | Kylee

Next up on my feature list is Rifle Bears Senior, Kylee!  She will be walking with her classmates tomorrow and turning her tassel in the direction of a bright future.  I have had the pleasure of getting to know Kylee very well over this past year and I won't even try to create a list of her accomplishments as it would take up an entire blog post.  She is an incredible young woman and an amazing dancer and cheerleader, if I might add!  Kylee is headed to the WORLD Dance Competition this summer in NJ with her fellow Full Throttle Dance Co. team mates!  This fall, she will then journey to CMU where she has made the college Cheerleading team!  Seriously, she's so amazing!  

By the way, if you can, please support the FTDC dancers as they have many fundraisers happening right now to help them get to Worlds.  Contact Kylee for more information on how you can help! 

Congrats, Kylee girl!!!  I'm really going to miss you but glad to know that you won't be far!

Dirty Laundry | Roaring Fork Senior Photographer

Yearbook photos have been turned in and this Roaring Fork Senior Photographer is celebrating another successfully busy season!  Thank you to all of the High School Seniors who have chosen CJP to create some totally rad images to document this important milestone!  What do I do now that the season has ended?  Well, I get to catch up on all the adult tasks that come with owning a business like taxes and the not so fun stuff that these seniors will soon get to complain about as well.  But, during the midst of adulthood I enjoy getting to spend every chance I get with these young people before they embark on their new adventures.  It's a time for me to be creative, play, and shoot without pressure.  That's exactly what we did here in our local laundromat!  Enough with the cold winter months, let's do something indoors.  So I called up these two awesome gals and said "hey, find some retro"ish" outfits and let's go play in the Laundromat (because I had been there not long ago and the light was amazing!).  We did and we had a blast!  Although, the Laundromat was quite busy - who knew?

Austin | Grand Junction Senior Photographer | Fruita Monument High School

Meet Austin, a Senior at Fruita Monument High School and a 2015 Graduate.  I had a blast taking Austin's senior portraits as he is a charming, bright and definitely handsome young man!  Curious to know why Austin chose to use a pistol as a prop for some of his images?  Well here's the story...  Austin has been competitively shooting handguns for about 5 years.  The action shooting sport he competes in is called IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association).  Austin found his passion with handguns and has climbed his way up to the master classification and recently took third place at the national championships competing against ALL ADULTS!  He has also recently picked up a sponsorship from Wilson Combat, the best custom 1911 pistol model manufacturer on the planet.  Austin is planning to attend college locally at CMU but if he happens to land a scholarship for shooting at Texas A&M, then he would love to venture south for his degree.

To learn more about the IDPA or Wilson Combat, please visit these links.

Congratulations Austin!
