A couple of weeks ago we enjoyed the weekend at Camp Patmos. It was a fun weekend talking with friends, serving a staff meal, hiking, playing in the pool and a boat ride in their new boat. I also got to go tubing-I think-for the first time. I can not remember tubing before. It was extra fun being able to go with Allan and with friends and the kids watching and cheering us on.
A year ago, I started a 1000 portrait challenge. I asked a new friend if I could take her picture. When she received the picture, she commented that it was the first picture in a long time that she liked of herself.
A few months later she wrote me, saying her daughter was getting married and would I do the wedding photographs. Last month, Allan (my very handsome assistant) and I went to Fruita, Colorado to take photos of Leigh and Cody’s May 4th wedding.
The small wedding was at Colorado National Monument which is beautiful! The couple enjoy Star Wars, so we also threw in some Star Wars type pictures for fun.
I wanted to experiment and try some pictures with this dead tree by Grandma’s house. We learned a few important things during our trials. Number one, get close. Secondly, make sure the ball is up high. Third, be careful, the sun burns extremely quickly!
