The transition from summer to fall is this Roaring Fork Family Photographer's FAVORITE time of the year! Temps are cooling, we finally got a bit of rain, and the kiddos are back in school. Now is the time to think about getting those family photos updated! Whether you are one of those who gets them taken annually or maybe you haven't had them done since your kiddos were babies (I'm not judging!). NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME because tomorrow those babies are another day older and yesterday is much too late. Document this time in your lives while you can :)
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!

Callie and Cody celebrated their Western Colorado Wedding on June 2nd and guess who got to be their photographer?! Oh yeah, that's right!

You're never too old for a cake smash! Not even when you are turning 30! Hey, I may even attempt this for my 40th, haha! The best part about a Grown-up cake smash is you get to have wine and Champagne, hell yes!!
Leah is a good friend who was one of the many medical professionals at Children's hospital who took care of my daughter, Hannah. I'd do just about anything for Leah ;)
And if anyone wants to do photos in Boulder, hit me up because Chautauqua Park is AMAZING!!
Happiest of birthdays to you , LEAH!!
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 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!!
