Happy Valentine’s Day!

· February 14, 2016 · 10:05 pm · Children, Just for Fun, , , , , , , , , ,

It’s been a crazy weekend here at our house. If you didn’t know already, my husband is a Youth Minster here in the area and this is the DNOW weekend! Which basically boils down to not seeing my husband for most of the weekend and all weekend. But hey it’s Valentine’s day and DNOW was a success and now he is home. So now I can get a little work done. Yay! My girls have been giddy all day opening their love cards from the Grandparents. I hope your kiddos have had a great day spending time with those who love them most! And if you had the opportunity to participate in a DNOW near you, I hope it was fantastic and God moved in all those who participated.

Tractor Pullin’ ~ Arapahoe County Fair – Denver, Colorado Portrait Photographer

· July 30, 2012 · 2:53 pm · Just for Fun, , , , , ,

Pull up your boot straps, were headed to the Arapahoe County Fair. I may talk a bit twang in this post only because it’s fun and I rarely ever get to do it. Note, I also talk pirate as well on national talk like a pirate day. But that’s not today.

So fellers and ladies have yer ever heard of tractor pulling’? If not, no worries. I hadn’t either until  a good friend of mine introduced me to one of her favorite hobbies. Here’s a bit o’ history on the sport: “Tractor pulling  also known as power pulling, is a motorsport competition, popular in America, Europe (especially in the Netherlands), Australia and Brazil, which requires modified tractors to pull a heavy sledge (sled) along a 35 ft wide and length of 100 meter or 300 ft+ track, with the winner being the tractor that pulls the sledge farthest. The sport is known as the world’s most powerful motorsport, due to the multi-engined modified tractor pullers. All tractors, in their respective classes, pull a set weight in the sledge. When a tractor gets to the end of the 100 metre (300 feet) track this is known as a “full pull”. When more than one tractor completes the course, more weight is added to the sledge, and those competitors that went past 300 feet will have a pull-off; the winner is the one who can pull the sledge the farthest.”

Ok, so seriously these little tractors have some serious get up and go and did I mention they get loud? Yes, they get very loud and some do fun tricks too. The pink tractor whistles at you! But who can’t resist the pink tractor? It’s cute, adorable and has a hot little mama named Kamo Kristie that drives it like it should be driven! I love all the little details her and husband have put into making this tractor unique. Wouldn’t you agree?

For the kiddo’s that aren’t quite ready to drive their own tractor have their own version of the sport too. Mini tractor pulling’ as they call it! Those kids had a blast racing against each other and seeing who could pull the most weight.

We had a great time at fair and saw some very cute animals too. If you have a chance, head on down to your local fair grounds and get yer some good ole food and have some fun!

Mine on Monday ~ What Have I Been Up Too? ~ Denver, Colorado Family Photographer

· June 18, 2012 · 6:09 pm · Just for Fun, Personal, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Why so glad you asked! Actually, I’ve been up to a lot and life has been nothing short of being crazy, busy, awesome, fun and full of laughter. Right now my life is headed in a direction I’ve been wanting for awhile. I won’t dive into details, but let’s just say life is good 🙂 I’m so excited and blessed to see what the coming months being for me.

So one of the (many) projects that I’ve been working on is replacing this gross (I really mean gross too!) green carpet that is in our playroom. The carpet came with the house when we bought it and has been a problem area since day one. This is not because I hate the carpet color (ok, it had a lot to do with it) but my cat was constantly urinating on it. I assume it had something to do with the pet’s that were there before we moved in, but nevertheless we could never get the smell to come out after he peed 🙁 Sad, yes, but it made my getting something new in there happen much faster! Woot!

So we journeyed out to find hardwood floors for the new area. I’m not sure what were thinking, perhaps excitement got the best of us, because after we bought the supplies, got home, unloaded and attempted to put these floors in, we quickly realized we had NO idea what we were doing 🙂 Ahhh the beauty of DIY’ers!  After a few attempts of putting in, taking out, scratching our heads and having a beer the floor began to take shape. The site supervisor was in charge most of the time, though I think she had much more fun playing around than supervising 🙂

Before picture

I should note, that we set this nasty lovely piece of carpet outside after and listed on craigslist for free. Someone actually took it… God Bless Them!

No more carpet – YAY

First attempt at laying the floor…

We all wrote our names on the floor before covering it back up. Had to leave our mark somewhere 🙂

Working in the dark + light = cool photo

Details ~ the small elements that collectively constitute a work of art

Though they are small, these little curls are precious to me. It’s the small things in life we forgot to document and later think we wished we would have taken a picture of it. Even though it might be a hassle to run and get the camera remember that this day, this moment in time only happens ONCE. Take it for all it’s worth, all it’s beauty and remember it, because you will never get that moment back 🙂 I hope your long weekend was wonderful!

~ Welcome ~

I'm Angela and I love what I do.

I play many different roles in my life, but boring is not one of them. I'm silly, quarky, completly honest and try to live life to it's fullest. I put my heart and soul into photography and take great pride in my work and making sure my clients leave with beautiful works of art they can cherish forever.

I love natural light photography and love working outdoors, however, I have a dedicated studio with professional grade lighting, props and decors specifically for newborns and young children. I adore creating art with color and light. Client galleries are a variety of work tailored to their preferences and edited to my style.

This was just a little bit about me. I can't wait to meet you and I hope that viewing my work will bring each of you as many smiles as it has brought to me!

xoxo ~ Angela
