Taking portraits of babies can be challenging. Really challenging. When we photograph them we just go with the flow. Sometimes they are happy, sometimes they are mad and crying. You have to be patient to create what you want. I would have to say we could possibly drop dead if we had to shoot an 8 hour portrait session with some of these fast, but cute babies. I am working on editing a session today, with pretty little Josephine. All the pictures were really cute, but as a man I connected with these two frames of her with her Dad.
I am amazed at the low light capabilities of this camera. I will be posting more about it later in the week.

Boulder can be a popular place here in Colorado for a wedding because of it’s beautiful views and the unique red rocks that are the landscape. There are many trails throughout Boulder for biking and hiking and at the top of the mountain overlooking the city there is an amphitheater made out of the rocks.
Jamie and Kelly were married at this big open amphitheater on a beautiful sunny day with all of their closest family and friends.
After we spent some time taking pictures we headed back down the mountain to Folsom Field on the CU campus for the reception. It’s always fun for us to photograph weddings in Stadiums with the big windows and the field below. This, of course is the home of the CU Buffalos and it was fun for all of their guests eat dinner looking out over the field.

2 Days left to submit images for printing for the photo critique. The judges and mentors will be Angie and I along with, our friends Ross Bothwell and Andrew Schaefer. Having your images critiqued by another photographer can be one of the most valuable learning tools at your disposal. Even better is the feedback you get to hear on others images. You are not emotionally attached to another photographers images, so you are free to listen to the feedback without any stake in the outcome. As a past judge for WPPI and PPW (professional photographers of wyoming) you will get valuable insight into what judges are looking for as well as a great discussion about composition. It will be non-threatening, honest critique aimed at helping you become a better photographer. If you can get over your fear of critique you will become a better photographer.
When : Tuesday March 27th
