Allie and Henny Penny | A Day in the Life

My sweet little Niece, Allie, loves her chickens! She’s got her very own “Hen House” and flock of ladies to collect eggs from daily. We went to visit Allie and her family for my Brother and Dad’s birthday party this past weekend. I have been wanting to photograph little Al with her chickens so I took a dress and my camera gear along. After dinner I asked Al if I could take her picture and she told me “NO” in true Allie fashion. It took little bit of convincing and bribery before she finally said yes, haha!

The mini photoshoot didn’t last long but we had a lot of fun. Even more fun chasing the chicken back to the coop!

Love you, Al Pal!

Coal Ridge Senior | Emily

Coal Ridge Senior, Emily will also turn her tassel later today!  Later this fall she will be headed off to pursue a degree as a dental hygienist and she will also be playing volleyball.  (She's pretty good too, I might add!). I am really going to miss her and her funny sense of humor.  I call her my pig whisperer as she often baby sits my pig for me (she thinks the Pig hate her), haha!!  Good luck to you, Emily girl!!  I am so excited for you and your future!  Have fun today!

Coal Ridge High School | Class of 2018

Coal Ridge HS | Santana

Coal Ridge HS Senior, Santana, is another who will graduate today with top honors in her class!  This 4 sport athlete received word not long ago that she is one of three at CR to be awarded the Daniels Scholarship!  For those who don't know, the Daniels Scholarship allows Santana to attend any college of her choice in the nation PAID IN FULL.  No doubt it took a lot of hard work, many essays and interviews to even be considered.  I personally think this is an incredible achievement for Tana and her parents must be over the moon with excitement!  

Congratulations, Santana!!  Go get em girl!!

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?

Glenwood Springs Wedding Photographer | Matt + Amy

Another GORGEOUS wedding has taken place this summer and this time we traveled lengths of the Roaring Fork Valley.  Matt and Amy were wed at the beautiful St. Stephen Catholic Church in Glenwood Springs, Colorado with the reception held at the lovely Redstone Inn.  The church in Glenwood is stunning!  If you haven't been, I suggest you put it on your list of places to visit.  It's truly incredible!  Following the ceremony the bridal party hopped into a party bus provided by Charm Chauffeurs and traveled to Redstone, CO for the reception.  We made stops in Carbondale for photo opps with the Majestic Mt. Sopris and then proceeded to venture past Redstone for photos near Marble.  It was quite the day and so many amazing photos for the new couple to enjoy for eternity!  Take a look and be sure to check out the vendors for all of your wedding planning needs!

Vendors for the day included:  Ceremony: Father Bert Chilson, St. Stephen Catholic Church \\  Reception venue and Catering:  Redstone Inn  \\  Bridal Gown:  Victoria Rose Bridal  \\  Bridal Makeup:  Gaby Bello  \\  Bridal Jewelry:  Ashley Jammaron & Jean Schnoes  \\  Floral Design:  Susan's Flowers  \\ Music:  DJ Benny  \\  Cake:  Melissa Miller  \\  Desserts:  Caitlin Causey, Becky Mathiowetz, Heather Marine, Gluten Free Momma \\  Hair:  Fiore Salon  \\  Bridesmaids Attire:  Azazie & Valerie's Bridal  \\  Groomsmen Attire:  Treadz  \\  Photography:  Carrie Johnson Photography

Central High School Class of 2017 | Reilly

They are graduating faster than I can produce the blog posts!  I couldn't forget Miss Reilly who walked with Central High School's Class of 2017 yesterday morning!  I've said it before but I'll say it again, I am so lucky to get to work with such a great group of Seniors year after year.  Reilly has really been one of my favorites this season because she is such a hard worker and an inspiration to her peers.  She has already turned her tassel and tossed her cap in the air and this fall she is headed to Colorado Mesa University to study Psychology.  She is excited for her college adventures but she is going to miss her friends and the nights spent in the student section at the volleyball and basketball games!  She even admits that she will miss the teachers that she grew close to during her 4 years of high school.  Awwwww, Reilly girl, you are such a sweetheart!  I can't wait to see and hear about all the fun you are going to have at CMU!

Congratulations!!
