Andy + Fiona + Molly

Being a photography fanatic, one of my favorite things about the holidays is getting all of the Christmas cards in the mail. I love to look at the family photos and think about what was going on while people were taking their photo. Since I am behind the camera so much, I can only image what is actually happening right before and right after the shutter clicks and most of the time it is not as glamorous as what happens the moment it clicks. That is what makes this job so much fun!

Heather and I had a great time hanging out with Andy and Fiona (and Molly) in downtown Denver grabbing some photos for their Christmas card. I work with Andy at Spyder and every once in a while he brings Molly into the office, so I knew that it was going to be a fun time.

I'm kind of sad that the Holidays are over and I have to wait until next year to do more Christmas card photos. But...I am looking forward to what 2010 has in store!

Braving the cold

A few months ago I got to go out with my buddy Josh Cook and just have some fun. There was no set agenda for this shoot but I asked him to bring his bike along and we went out along a road close to my house and just had him ride back and forth for about 30 minutes. Josh was a trooper and just kept lapping, and it was COLD. I actually don't feel bad for him because I was the one laying on the ground freezing while he was getting his blood moving.

As the sun disappeared on us we transitioned into some shots using the black sky as a background with a quick wardrobe change. Again, there was no real agenda here, but with Josh being a photographer as well he knew that being a complete idiot in front of the camera is what makes for the best pictures! Hopefully we will get the chance to go out again soon and get a little crazier.
