I remember first seeing the framework of the building go up for what would become Alpine Botanicals- the towns very first apothecary! With the mountain values and style of living, having a place to buy medicinal herbs, supplements, tinctures, and wellness products sounded like a dream! We didn’t know then how much more the shop would offer.
When the owner/herbalist, Kate Miller, inquired about imagery for the business- I was ecstatic. Working with Kate on achieving imagery that transmitted the vibe of Alpine Botanicals was a blast. Not only did we want to showcase some of the amazing product sold in-store, but also the warm and welcoming nature of the shop itself. We chose to do this both in the space as well as outside in the landscape and elements that inspired and created the basis for so many of the remedies created by Kate herself as well as so many other local herbalists and artisans throughout the great state of Colorado.
If you’re ever in Nederland, I highly recommend making a stop here! Also check out the Alpine Botanicals website to find out more about the shop and new developments! https://www.alpinebotanicals.com/
With the discipline of a Buddhist monk, Haley meticulously documents her family life via tripod on a daily basis. Her photos are not only beautiful, but also convey so much of her personality, her values, and her style. In addition to taking her own photos, Haley is expanding to create an educational course for those curious followers to learn how to document their own lives more easily.
As it turns out, she also has found a deep passion for birth photography, as she believes in documenting more than one facet of motherhood.
While Haley is amazing at taking self-portraits, she wanted some images taken from another photographers perspective as well. I strived to really showcase a part of her day in as meaningful a way as she does, with glimpses into her life - not only as a professional - but also a mother and a wife as well.

When Eileen approached me about content for her anxiety-centered CBT practice, I couldn’t have been more excited to start brainstorming. As with many branding sessions, in a nutshell- she wanted headshots and images of her office space. The fun part was that her office was not only a clean, modern space in Boulder, but also her rustic cabin home in the mountains.
Through her photos we hoped to transmit the message that anxiety can be dealt with through many means, from counseling, to meditation, and through the pursuit of freedom in the outdoors.

Who doesn't love yummy food that is ALSO healthy for you? Ailsa has built a career around Functional Nutrition and a passion for food blogging.

Rudi needed just some general headshots for the launch of a new business venture with her husband- which has yet to be revealed!
We took a combination of indoor and outdoor shots that reflect her style and positive spirit.
Roam Jewels is a one-woman business created by one of the most artistically inclined people I've ever met- Alison Winnard.
Alison has managed to combine her love for handmade items and being a metalsmith with her passion for adventure in the outdoors. Her aim was to get shots of her pieces in the natural environments they're so inspired by, and to communicate the beauty of landscapes and the outdoor lifestyle through her brand.

Imagine: A long day in the outdoors riding your bike, climbing a rock or hiking a trail. You arrive at your destination (wherever it may be) and pour yourself a cold, freshly-tapped pint of your favorite craft brew to wind down and take it all in.
Well thanks to Mark & Aaron (the founders of Trail Keg) that's more than possible.
The goal with their brand imagery was to show their customers that with a product that easily fits in a day-pack, craft beer on the go is now a thing.
We've enjoyed using our Trail Keg in lots of places, and are always satisfied when those last little drops of foamy goodness trickle out of the tap.

"Woolies for the ups, the downs and the upsidedowns!" - what a perfect tagline for this amazing local-to-Nederland Merino Wool apparel company.
Fanny Toorenburg seemingly does it all. From working hard to playing hard outdoors and raising three kiddos to boot, she truly embodies the drive and dedication it takes to be an entrepreneur.
Fanny wanted photos of her woolies to show them as they were intended- keeping people warm (or cool) in the elements as they pursued their many various outdoor endeavors. From mountain biking, to climbing, to backpacking- these puppies are both comfy and practical for all occasions.

Though Courtney hails the mountain life these days, she came from the big city where she worked in advertising. (It's no wonder she's so fashionable all of the time!)
She's currently updating her portfolio and headshots as she prepares to re-enter the workforce. Being a creative we believed that formal headshots just wouldn't do her personality justice. Therefore we took photos both indoors and outside of her gorgeous mountain home that reflect her ability to mix adventure and style, with a touch of quirk.
To quote Amanda's site (Dennelly Design Studio) :
"It’s time to stop putting off the life you’ll live someday and start living it now."
Amanda wanted headshots that would show her in the adventurous, live-giving environment she calls home. What says "get out and live" more than mountains? More than spending time with a beloved fur-friend? More than pursuing personal athletic endeavors like training for a marathon?

Katie Jagt is both the founder and the brains behind Watershed Science & Design, which is a Boulder-based research and engineering firm that helps re-route/create safer and healthier waterways.
I was hired on by Katie for not only headshots, but also to document a local project which focused on finding solutions to prevent future flooding in an area once devastated by mountain run-off.
