My dear friend, Heather, eloped to Colorado with her beloved Alex and “let” me photograph their beautiful day. I’m so grateful.
I spent the last 10+ hours sewing up this pretty little skirt for this year’s Tour de Fat celebration in Fort Collins. Our group’s theme is “steampunk”. We’ve all taken a different niche of steampunk; me with burlesque, some wild west, more traditional steampunk and even one steampunk gypsy circus stripper. Stay tuned for lots of fun shenaniganery photos from tomorrow’s crazy bicycle event.
ps. I made the skirt from this pattern- though I had to modify it a bit so that I can ride my bike and not get it stuck in the spokes!
This entire session was just magical. I’ve been with Soo since she first became pregnant and have spent nearly every day with her through the entire 9-ish months- watching her belly grow and feeling the baby kick. I feel an ultra-special connection to this little babe and this intimate session really enhanced that feeling. Soo had been on a modified bed rest due to complications with the pregnancy so I racked my brain for a week- trying to find a beautiful location that wouldn’t require her to move around. I finally found a spot about a mile from where we live. We literally parked the car and walked across the street. I am grateful that we live in a place with SO MUCH beauty.
As the sun rose over the horizon, we started shooting. I moved around Soo, shooting at this angle and that. Switching directions and running in circles so she didn’t have to move much. The light was incredible and Soo was breathtaking. The pictures are just what I had hoped for.
