All hats off to this young lady who just graduated from DeBeque High School! Alyza is such a sweetheart and I had the pleasure of photographing her twice during her final year of high school as she was one of my senior model reps. Alyza is a country girl at heart and has always been active in HS Rodeo as well as a member of the volleyball and basketball teams. I am so excited to see all that she accomplishes in her bright future!
Folks, meet Krista! She is a recent high school graduate of Fruita Monument. I've never met such a sweet young lady with such a playful sense of humor. I had so much fun photographing Krista and helping her to step outside of her comfort zone. We giggled and joked around throughout her entire session and let me tell you, this lady can come up with some real knee-slapping wise cracks! Her awesome work ethic and humorous antics are sure to take her far in life!
Folks, meet Madison! She is a Senior from Dayton, Texas who has got some serious Style! I mean serious! I had the pleasure of taking Madison's Senior Portraits a few weeks ago while her family was visiting Colorado over Christmas break, an annual tradition. Madison is part of a competitive Cheer Team in her home town and I've checked out some of her Cheer pictures, they are amazing!
We took Madison's pictures on what seemed like the coldest day of the year! It was snowing off and on and just down right bitter. We took breaks often to warm up and at one point I even had to take off my boots to let my toes thaw! When we finished up her session at Powderhorn Resort it was a whopping 4 degrees out! Brrrrrr! It was so much fun, we had a blast and the images are stunning! Take a look and leave her some love in the comments!

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.
It's time for round 2 of Kale's Senior Portraits! Kale is one of my 2015 Senior Model Reps so she was awarded two rounds of senior sessions. You can see her previous mini session here: Kale | Palisade High Class of 2015
In case you haven't figured it out yet, Kale is a Senior at Palisade High School and she will be graduating this coming spring! Kale is on the Varsity Cheerleading Squad at Palisade and it seems to be a big part of her life. She has a great sense of humor and kept me laughing throughout both of her sessions especially when she ventured out into the field of lavender surrounded by thousands of bees! Kale's favorite color is PINK and when I asked her what her dream job would be, she said either a Special Education Teacher or a Food Tester (because she likes to eat. A LOT.) Hmmmm.....
Congratulations Kale! I wish you the best of luck in this journey called LIFE!
Meet Shannon, a future graduate of Palisade High School Class of 2015!
I had the pleasure of taking Shannon's senior portraits this year and I can tell you she is the sweetest thing! Shannon is an outgoing and bright young lady who plays golf for Palisade. We talked about her plans after she graduates next May and she has settled on CMU to further her education either in accounting or possibly joining their nursing program. No matter what she ultimately decides, I know this girl is going to do great things in life!
Sierra is a recent graduate of Fruita Monument High School with a plethora of many talents! She was a member of the POMS team at FMHS, she loves tennis, fashion design, photography and singing! I had the pleasure of photographing Sierra at two different sessions as she was one of my Senior model reps and we had so much fun together! I'm so excited to watch her go out into the world and achieve greatness!
Good Luck on all you do girlie!
