Rachel Dashae (Instagram: @racheldashae) at Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, CO in April 2016.  This image was taken at the end of our shoot, around 3:30pm in direct sunlight.  The wind was whipping around, which was creating pure magic with her hair.  She was moving around like a dance, and this was a pause.  It was so beautiful.  What you can't see in this photo were her big black boots that she was wearing because the ground was full of prickly spine-filled plants.  I was laying down, and needless to say, I was covered in them.  It was completely worth it.  What a day.  Shot with a Canon 5dMarkII & Canon 70-200mm EF f/2.8L IS USM lens.

Hello world!  Welcome to the new site!  Enjoy some of my latest work--and for the first time ever, view some full sets of some of my photoshoots.  Make sure to follow me on Instagram, and follow the amazing women that I have had the pleasure of working with (I've included their Instagram handles when you click to view their full sets on the 'Home' or 'Women' pages).  This site is a work in progress, but I wanted to get it out there, and tweak after (I'm a recovering perfectionist--so I would be nit-picking forever, and never release it otherwise).  Enjoy, and make sure to check back for travel updates, new sets, and more info on my business moving forward!  I have some exciting stuff that I want to share with you.  I have posted two upcoming travel notices--one for Denver (June 25th-28th), and another for New England (July 15th-26th).  Contact me if you are interested in booking a shoot during those times.  

Thank you for stopping by and clicking around--I am really loving this new work, and feeling inspired to keep creating more.  xoxo
