Nancy and I had been working on getting a date set since I did pictures of her nephew Ethan back in April and we finally had the perfect Octber day. We had been worried about the weather, but when I pulled up a couple hours early (I always like to scout out where I’m shooting) to Cherry Creek State Park it was beautiful! I’m talking no wind, 70 degrees, perfect cloud cover, and on top of that the changing Colorado trees. Really, does it get better than that?
We ended up kicking off the family shoot about an hour earlier than we had planned, and boy did that end up being a good thing! I had all of these great locations scouted out and we had hit a couple of them when out of nowhere the wind kicked up like crazy and it started spitting on us. This wind wasn’t a nice breeze that we could work with, so we had to call the shoot. Of course we got some great shots first, but how couldn’t you with three beautiful girls and a mom and dad that weren’t too bad either! We’ll just have to save the lake and beach shots for next time.
See what I mean about the perfect day and colors?
It cracked me up how different all three of the girls’ personalities were. Their jumping shot shows it perfectly!
However, I think that this one just shows it a little bit better. Funny how their individuality comes through without even seeing their faces.
By this time it had started to cool down and we knew that our time was limited.
So, instead of running to the next spot, why not skip?!
I’m quite positive that they were probably fighting to keep their eyes open between the wind and rain at this point, but they held strong and you couldn’t even tell!
Thanks again Steve, Nancy, and girls, I had a great time and thanks for putting up with my lame jokes!
Tomorrow pictures of a new 4 year old!
