Colorado is my home town and whenever I get a chance to photograph there I jump at it. For someone who has spent the last 5 years photographing in the desert it is an absolute treat to work in such a lush and beautiful place, not to mention 40 degrees cooler! After some exploring (and help from a local photographer who generously shared this location) we ended up in Evergreen at this amazing lake house. Gorgeous views, wildlife and perfect lighting - this was an absolutely ideal spot.
Cody is the son of close friends, Heather and Bill. I was so honored to be asked to do his senior photos. Cody made me look like a very, very good photographer when all I really did was let him smile and tried not to get in his way. I mean really - can you stand how handsome and effortless this Colorado kid is? A true outdoorsman that would look just as comfortable in a cabin or at the beach.
Cody goes to Thunder Ridge High School. He is creative, loves to create, play and listen to music. He is funny as well as so respectful and kind. The type of teenager that has been taught how to present himself with confidence but also with a fair dose of humor. We had so much fun exploring Evergreen Lake. Cody was game for climbing into the weeds or trudging through the mud in order to get the shot I had in mind.
Cody brought along his gorgeous girlfriend Shelby as well as his folks. They were so helpful and fun, this was truly an ideal session. Relaxed and fun - and the finished images definitely represent that laid back atmosphere. Cody was recently accepted to Colorado Mesa University. I am so excited to see all the amazing things that this young man will do in this world. Thank you to the Taylors for allowing me to share this special moment with them.
