Taking out my braid to get ready for bed, I thought I would break my ‘no social media before bed’ rule to come on here and share a story I can’t shake. When I received that spontaneous reiki treatment at the farmers market on Friday, I remember receiving a vision as I laid face up on her table. She was healing my sacral chakra when, with eyes closed, she sternly said ‘you need to express yourself more through creativity.’ Right before my ego jumped in I received a vision of a painting. An acrylic type of canvas... colors everywhere, swirled into a meaningful mess. The vision was so powerful I interrupted to tell her what I just saw. So, yesterday I got to my air bnb in Dolores, CO and was greeted by my host, Jeanne, who immediately felt like seeing an old family member after a long while. Jeanne doesn’t shake your hand ~ she cups it with both of hers and stares you in the eye and sends love down your spine. Before I could even close my car door she pulled me into her art studio to show me her work.... and what do you think I walked into: the exact vision I had the day before. The EXACT style of paintings that came to me during my reiki session!! 🌈Jeanne’s property was so peaceful, words can’t explain. I stayed in the ‘moon room’ with floor to ceiling windows and fell asleep to the twinkle of stars. In the morning Jeanne and I shared coffee and hours of conversation. Life, love, and everything in between as our dogs laid at our feet and our coffee got cold. As I packed my things to leave, Jeanne gave me a warm embrace and my hair got tangled in her necklace. She laughed and started playing with my long hair, then asked if she could braid it. She sent me off to New Mexico with a beautiful long braid and a powerful healing crystal bracelet, hanging from my rear view mirror, protecting me on my journey and reminding me of the transformative Summer I spent in the San Juan Mountains. I wanted to keep this messy braid just the way it is, but tomorrow is a new day, so I let my hair down and embrace for a blank slate of possibilities.... who knows who might want to braid my hair tomorrow lol goodnight y’all 🌙 sending love from Albuquerque

Before you get offended at my theology. Listen. I’m not saying He isn’t high and mighty. I’m not saying He isn’t all powerful. I am saying that sometimes, it’s all we can do to just invite God into our lives as a friend. And He is more than okay with that. Can we be honest with God? Can we just say “here I am, if you could just be with me for a while. Can we just share some time together?” — His answer will always be a million times “YES!”. Love you, friend. You’re gonna be ok! Our best days are ahead. ❤️

Alpine lakes and my guy...there's no better combo💙 We had so much fun camping this weekend and it felt great to get some #mountaintherapy. So blessed to live in this heaven they call Colorado!

Happy 103rd birthday to the National Park Service. Today I ran a 50k around Rocky Mountain National Park and up to Crystal Lake. There are so many tails I haven’t been on in RMNP, and can’t wait to go back! #coloradolive #optoutside #hike #colorado #rockies #mountains #ultra #marathon #takeahike #happytrails

Rye not close down wedding szn in this gorgeous spot with my favorite date?!

So we completed our 30+ mile mountain run yesterday and felt fantastic afterwards! Super stoked to see how far I can push myself next month for my first hundred miler. 🙌🏽 I know it’s going to be painful, but pain only hurts, right? 📸: taken at mile 7 of 32

Fall will be here before we know it.....

I want to be happy. 😊 I want to be fearless. I want to be confident. I want to be successful. I want to be beautiful. I want to be debt-free. I want to control my feelings. I want to be free. I want to travel the world. 🌎 With all these things I want it's up to me to accomplish my goals to get to where I want to be in the future.

We had a great time in Buena Vista today. Meeting up with @mandyleaphoto and @kendrickcallaway . Check them out on Instagram and YouTube. They are in the middle of a “14er” project. It involves climbing fourteen 14ers and visiting 14 distilleries and breweries in 14 days. We were glad to help today with a couple of those goals.

what a difference a week makes

This cobblestone pathway in Buena Vista, complete with Airstream & vintage bikes, left me feeling inspired. What a great find in this tiny mountain town, the vibe and music culture in BV left me longing for more. 🚲 🎶 #hostingfromtheheart #mountaintown #exploremore #getoutside #mountainlife #escapethecity #journey #travelcolorado #amazingday #viewfromthetop #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #liveauthentic #fromwhereistand #morningslikethese #coloradolife #rockymountains #buenavistacolorado #coloradolive #airstream #cobblestonestreets #workingretreat #liveauthentically

On top aspen mountain!

Ya know how cheese just makes you happy? Isn’t that just the best?

Happy Scenic Sundays! Today’s photograph is a reedit of the Milky Way over Lake Irene in Rocky Mountain National Park (@rockynps) on September 9, 2018. (Only my 2nd MW photo ever.) This photo was taken on a very memorable new moon night. My Dad and I made the trek up to Lake Irene (10,680 feet) from Grand Lake, Colorado and hiked back to Lake Irene. I wanted to capture the reflection of the Milky Way lined up over the lake. It did not disappoint! We did have to contend with some airplane traffic, but overall the conditions were clear, cold, quiet and peaceful! It was such a special moment to stand there in complete darkness, gazing up at the stars and Milky Way, which you could see with your naked eye, and contemplate the vastness of the universe with my Dad. It is a moment I will never forget! Here, I stacked 8-10 photos of the sky and foreground to help reduce noise with my Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 lens (@tamronusa) mounted on my Really Right Stuff tripod (@reallyrightstuff). I am really excited about how this photo turned out, and I am contemplating featuring it in my next photography show; what do you think? If you have never had the chance to experience no light pollution, do it! It is a simply breathtaking experience that camera captures cannot do justice, and RMNP is a great place for it.

Beautiful waterfall on the infamous road between Gothic and Crystal. What an exciting and scenic Jeep trip!! Devil’s Punchbowl photos soon. I actually liked this waterfall better than Devil’s Punchbowl.....more elements.....but both are very beautiful!

Water may take the path of least resistance but it is definitely not the shortest route!

I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight! 😁 check out pictures from our hike to Devils Thumb Lake @jennycccarter

Whenever I am in an area with moose I set out with the hopes of finding a big bull & almost always a catch the smaller guys out and about. It’s always a blessing to spend time with these animals & when I feel a bit discouraged that it’s not the big one, I have to remind myself of that. Plus it keeps me motivated to keep looking. . . . #bullmoose #moose #naturephotography #animalsofinstagram #wildlifeonearth #naturelovers #wildlife_seekers #moosehunting #coloradowildlife #animallovers #animal_sultans #coloradolive #animalsofinstagram #biggame #wildlifeaddicts #yourshotphotographer #nature_obsession #wildlifeplanet #coloradooutdoors #ilovemoose #photographylovers #coloradophotographer #wildlifepage #adventurevisuals #thegreatoutdoors #wildlife #photographyeverday #earthcapture #photooftheday #wildlifephotography

Excited to see what else I can capture in this amazing state!

Beautiful day to be out on the lake 🚤

“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

The high water levels resulted in this cool shot! Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Colorado Day Everyone! Wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!

Caught a bit of color during sunset the other day. I like my sunsets with clouds ⛅️

Golden Hour vibes!

Sunset is the best time of day! Happy Friday Everyone!

It’s Hump Day! I really like how this shot came out, I get a sense of calmness from it. I hope you all have a great day!

Found a cool new spot to fish at and take some portraits at! DM me to book your shoot!

Awesome view of the mountains with the drone!

Don't be afraid to give up the good and go for the great! Happy Hump Day!

My favorite views are ones with no buildings or no cars, just the creations of God!

Have a great weekend everyone!

The melting snow created a nice waterfall! I hope you’re not getting bored of these shots from Crested Butte.

Life is about laughing & living in good & bad times. Getting through whatever comes our way & looking back with a smile.

Went down this road to visit Emerald Lake but unfortunately it was still frozen over. Got some great shots a long he way though!

Awesome shot of the sunlight hitting Mt. Crested Butte! It’s hard to find a bad view in this beautiful town.

Is Instagram finally working? Here are some cool shots I got in the little town of Gothic which is just a short drive from Crested Butte.

Had a great time exploring Crested Butte! But now I’m happy to be home!

Absolutely stunning views here in Created Butte and around Gunnison National Forest!

Happy First Day of Summer!

Calm before the storm. Found some great new spots to get some shots of the mountains! Hopefully I can catch a nice sunset soon!

Have a great week everyone!

So cool how the rain drops look in this pic! 🌧

Thought I would try doing some landscape shots with the portrait lights. Also, don’t forget to contact me about portrait sessions!

Been a while since I have posted a drone shot. Ready to see some cool views around Colorado this summer and definitely some more shots from above!

Really like this shot 👌 Happy Friday Everyone!

So a fisherman found a body in this lake a couple days after I took these photos and fished there. Don’t know if I want to go back 😳 Anyway, enjoy the nice pictures!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Woke up early to get some sunrise shots, not the best sunrise today but still got some good ones!

The flowers just started to bloom but we’re still supposed to get snow tomorrow. That’s Colorado! 💐❄️

Really liking this silhouette shot 👍 I hope you all have a great Friday!

Some more beautiful pics from the other day!

Another beautiful sunset yesterday! Its starting to feel like summer, can’t wait to get out and take more photos!

As a photographer, I always have to get the window seat to see the views!
