Sara Before 8am

Before 8am sessions are back!

I’m excited to share with you Sara’s Saturday morning today. We shot this on Valentine’s Day weekend, while Sara, her husband, and her twin 2-year-olds had a leisurely morning making pancakes (pink and heart-shaped for the holiday, even). Check out what Sara’s morning looks like.

This week in winter hiking | ending 2.6

A couple weeks ago we got a whole lotta snow, which made my winter hiking especially gorgeous.

This first hike is one I did with the awesome Boulder Hiker Chicks.

Another day, three of us climbed Bear Peak, which is my favorite Boulder hike, although it was unexpectedly tough due to the deep snow still on the trail.

8549 feet up, looking down over Boulder to the east and the mountains to the west. Such an amazing feeling being up there.

Donna Before 8am

Sunday morning at Donna’s house. We shot this back in May, but time got away from me and I never got around to blogging them. So now as I’m about to start sharing a bunch of new before 8am sessions (I can’t wait!), I thought I’d go back and post this one to get things started.

Donna cracks me up because she has a very dry sense of humor and is very direct and she tells it like it is. She’s a interior designer with an art history background. Here’s a Sunday morning in her house.

A little modesty.

When you can be measured on the kids’ giraffe height chart. Short people problems. LOL.
