Yesterday I did a photoshoot trade of sorts with my good friend Charlotte -- I took portraits of her and her husband Mike, and then she took portraits of me and Pat. It was so much fun! Charlotte, Mike and their dog Ally posed for my camera at Red Rock Canyon, a favorite spot of theirs and close to their home. Mike was a really great sport about it, considering he doesn't love getting his picture taken so much! And of course Charlotte looks radiant as always, and Ally wins the Miss Photogenic award for cutest dog ever. Charlotte is such a killer photographer, Pat and I were happy to pose for her camera afterward! I'll post those photos later, after I get them from Char.
Hey guys we should do this more often! Tamera

On October 10th I went to lunch with my mom at Barney's Diner. I've always wanted to eat there. Barney's is in a tiny building located on the corner of Sierra Madre and Las Animas, and I'm pretty sure it's been there for generations. I am a huge fan of diners and greasy spoon-type restaurants but I didn't know my mom even knew about this place, so I was shocked when she suggested it! It was just like I thought it would be: comfortably worn down, with tasty food, flourescent lighting and a waitress that calls you Hon. There were a lot of very elderly patrons dining there and the waitresses knew all their names, so they must have a lot of regulars at Barney's. I think I'll join them more often.

Ashley says I don't because she's not a real bride! She's actually a high school senior that was nice enough to do a little modeling for me. I met her when she tagged along on her boyfriend's senior portrait shoot a few weeks earlier. I thought she was very striking so I kept her in mind for potential future modeling opportunities. When I needed a model for a senior portrait ad, Ashley was the first person I thought of. Meanwhile, a couple of my photographer friends needed a "bride" for a photo shoot at popular local wedding venue, Shove Chapel, so we killed two birds with one stone: on the same day, Ashley posed for senior portraits and bridals. She was a great model and a good sport too (especially when one of her school acquaintances randomly showed up at Shove Chapel and spied Ashley all dolled up like a bride - imagine the gossip at school the next day!).
It was a lot of work and a lot of fun, and we got some great images. Ashley, thanks for your time and energy. You're a gorgeous girl!

I love Indian Summer in Colorado! Here's a happy little wedding that I second shot with my good friend Charlotte Geary. As second photographer I had the luxury of photographing whatever I thought looked good, without having to worry too much about the official portraits. Sue and Manuel's wedding ceremony and reception took place at Hillside Gardens on October 4th, a patented bright and sunny Colorado day. There were tons of really adorable kids there, plus lots of sunshine, flowers and even butterflies! They couldn't have asked for a prettier day to say their vows. Congrats Sue and Manuel, and Charlotte it was fun working with you as always!
