This is the second session I have done with Sheyla and her son. I always have the most wonderful time with them. Chasing a four year old and his elusive focus on my lens is always a fun challenge for me! I hope to do many more shoots with these guys in the future. Hopefully we can get dad to come along next time ;-)
One of the greatest joys for me as a photographer is capturing the beauty and soulful essence of women who are in their element and in their power. My annual ‘goddess shoot’ with Harmony Scott Jewelry Design is one of the times where I am guaranteed to experience this blessing in spades! The ladies at HSJD always rustle up some of the most gorgeous and accomplished women of the roaring fork valley to model for our shoots. We started this annual shoot a while back whenever I came home to Colorado for my summer trip. It has become a wonderful tradition that I look very forward to!
This year Harmony herself was abroad on business, so her trusty team spearheaded the shoot. Crystal and Claire did an amazing job setting it all up, despite the fact that we had to change locations twice, and ended up shooting amidst thunder, lightening and rain. There were some challenges for me as a photographer (mainly the super low light that resulted from dark thunder clouds), but between my hearty gear, the positive attitude of our models, and the efficiency of Claire and Crystal as stylists, it was a huge success!!!
I am very grateful to have had this time with all of these beautiful women in a place that is my heart’s home.
I had the amazing fortune of meeting Gemma Marin recently. She instantly captivated me on so many levels. Her beauty, as you can see is undeniable, and the humility with which she balances that gift is awe-inspiring! She is an actor living in Los Angeles, but is originally from Spain. She is incredibly connected and sincere, and has a light about her that no one could forget. Suffice it to say, she has it ALL going on. Her latest gig was a wonderful commercial for Nespresso featuring Danny DeVito and George Clooney. Yes, she got to dance cheek to cheek with George and Danny! I think they should both count themselves lucky. I certainly count myself lucky to have met and connected with this beautiful soul! I look forward to collaborating with her in the future!
This session was a true collaboration with my amazingly talented friends, Gabriella Dorsen (hair) and her sister Bria Dorsen (makeup). Silvia Guijarro Parra was our consultant and transportation advisor :-). Working with these ladies not only makes everything fun but they are the consummate professionals making their expert work look effortless!!! I can't wait to do more sessions with them!
Erin is a beautiful soul who has an amazing wellness company called Pure Light Wellness. Being with Erin is like basking in the most beautiful light. She is the real deal.....down to earth, warm, authentic and loving! I loved every minute of our sacred portrait session on the streets of Venice, CA!
Olga was in Los Angeles on a visit from Spain. We had a great time capturing some portraits for her in Venice while she was here!
As you can see, Robyn is a beauty! I had the honor of shooting her wedding a while back, and was thrilled when she hired me to do a portrait session honoring the start of her new career in real estate!
This is one of the first sacred portrait sessions I did this year with the specific goal of showcasing the beauty and strength of a woman entering gracefully into her forties. We wanted to make tangible Harmony'sinner spirit through all of these images. It was a true collaboration. Harmony is a brave soul to share herself in this way, and I was so honored to be a part of her journey! She is one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out, and her fierce yet tender nature shows perfectly through these images! The jewelry she is wearing is all designed and made by her.....original designs that you can find on her website for Harmony Scott Jewelry Design.
