Magical Flower

Spring is here, with flowers and greenery returning to the forests!

This flower was photographed along a trail while making my way down from my first mountain summit!  Not a terribly challenging hike, but still proud!

A good reminder to let ourselves feel pride for accomplishing our goals, even the modest ones!

Spring is almost here!

Why not celebrate with a fantasy photoshoot inspired by Goddesses, deer, flowers, and all things Spring?

 

The darkness is already growing shorter, which means more sun to warm our faces and try to work with when photographing outdoors!

With warmer weather and a new season upon us, who know what’s in store!

Pink Buds | End of a Season

The end of the warmer seasons is here, and as the colder weather blows in, it’s helpful to think back on our goals and priorities.

Why wait until New Year to think about how we’re doing and where we’re going?

Life has a way of flying by, so let’s take more opportunities throughout the year to do some serious contemplation on our lives, what they are, and what we want them to be.

Big goals are best broken down into smaller, more manageable goals, so why not consider checking in with our biggest dreams four times a year?

However we go about setting and monitoring our goals, let’s be sure to take the time to reflect on our lives.

Bloom | Take The Leap

“Leap and the net will appear.” -John Burroughs

We may desperately want change, but still cling to what we’ve known because it’s safe and predictable.

We tell ourselves want a new job, but then convince ourselves we can’t change careers now.  The bills will never get paid, the job market is too bad, and that we should just stick it out.

Things in life are always changing, but to make the changes we crave and need, we have to be willing to let go and take the leap.

Things will work out one way or another.  Be smart, and be prepared, but let’s not be too afraid to take the leap.

Let’s be courageous.  Our net will appear.

Fairytale Path | Ute Valley Park

It’s hard not to find a beautiful scene when taking a stroll through nature.

This view was so reminiscent of a fairytale, it proved a great chance to practice editing.  A great inspiration to try creating more fantastical and magical works with vivid colors and hues.  Bright reds and purples definitely come to mind!

Nature is gorgeous on its own, but sometimes it’s fun to push it and remake the reality we’ve captured before us.

Pink Spring Flower

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve photographed flowers…

Colorado has really come alive this Spring as flowers and blossoms have been bloomed all over, which is definitely a wonderful surprise!

Let’s keep our eyes open to the colors around us and enjoy the blooming of Spring.

Spring in the Rockies

So it’s Spring here in Colorado!  Although sprinkled with beautiful warm days, half the year is still a long time to have cold conditions when you’re a lover of warm weather!  At least we’re able to enjoy a great amount of sun year round.

Cold weather has made getting outside much harder.  Though, since spending more time in nature is a major goal, it’s definitely time to find more weather-appropriate clothes.

If we find ourselves avoiding the outdoors during Winter (and Spring), let’s get ourselves to the thrift shop to find some proper boots, coats, hats, and gloves, so we can bundle up and stay warm during this beautiful season.
