I haven’t posted in a while. I have been focusing much of my work on 12 Dime projects as well as work on Denver Discoveries. I use this blog as my start page and realized that, though I love the last post, it was time to do some personal work.
Again, when looking for a good subject, I need not look far. Elsa and I were due for an adventure as well. It was Earth Day. Elsa wanted to be a fairy. Who was I to argue? Just bring the camera and let her lead.
It worked. Now I can look at these shots and remember a special day with my special girl.
Well, it has been a long time in the making but our daughter is going to be a flower girl. This has been a dream for her in her short life and now that dream will come true. Her cousin will be married this summer and was kind enough to fold under the pressure and ask Elsa if she was up to the task. Is she ever! Our first step was to go and try on dresses and what better place to go then to our friends at Marie James in Bonnie Brea. Marie James offers a beautiful selection of bridal party gowns and specializes in making each client feel like a princess. Sally and Katie were great and Elsa had a super time trying on everything they offered that was even close to her size. We went on a Saturday that seemed to be pretty busy. All of the other clients were pleased to step away from the mirrors so that Elsa could see how she looked. We found loads of good options and her cousin should have plenty to choose from. What a day for an excited young lady.
On a recent chilly afternoon I had the opportunity to photograph a great little guy and his family. We met in Denver’s City park and were treated to some fantastic afternoon light. Although it was cold everyone did a great job and we came away with some awesome images. A gigantic flock of Canadian Geese were nice enough to fly over us on-Que to add to the action.
We have begun what I hope is a great journey into the world of dance. Upon moving to Denver we decided it was time to enroll in dance classes. The start of this journey was full of questions, what style of dance, quality of program, schedule and location made for a tentative start. There were lots of options each of which we really knew nothing about. After extensive internet research, a couple of drive-bys, a bunch of e-mails and a missed first class we chose Children’s Dance Place. What a great choice it has turned out to be. The class is called “Creative Dance” and focuses on general concepts and dance vocabulary. It is full of some very energetic and eager 4 and 5 year old girls. The instructors, Shira and Heather run a tight ship filled with creativity, stories and lots of action. So far we could not have imagined a better opportunity.
