Colie Before 8am

Another new Before 8am! You may remember seeing them before on my blog (if you’ve been reading a while) when I did a DITL session with them a few years ago.

We shot this back in January on a particularly cold day. The temp was hovering around zero degrees F when I got there at 6am. Check out the family onesies that they put on (on the regular, they tell me) to stay warm without having to jack up the heat.

Here’s a Saturday morning at Colie’s house.

Rhonda Before 8am

Rhonda and her husband have five kids, ranging from 15 to 1. (The baby was 10 months old at the time we shot this, which was back in January.) They live just south of Greeley, a town northeast of Denver on the plains. Their small town is also where they grew up. It’s not that far from me (an hour), but it feels so completely different out there. My Colorado is mountains and hills, but the whole eastern side of the state is as flat as Kansas. It made for a gorgeous sunrise over the snow-covered plains.

One thing that struck me about Rhonda was how family-centered her life seemed. She seemed to me to be someone who just really loved having a houseful of kids and taking care of them all.
