1,2, down, UP!

It was time once again for one of my favorite recurring photo shoots - the Manitou Springs High School Cheerleaders! They are so FUN and enjoyable to photograph. The bright sun made it tricky for some of the top of the rock shoots, but we made it work somehow. Building & doing stunts at Garden of the Gods is always a crowd pleaser, too, with plenty of people stopping to watch (which the girls don't mind. ha). At any rate, I love photographing this group every year cause they are not scared to ham it up and be awesome. Go Mustangs :)

Linds & Matt!

Two cheers for photo shoots with best friends! And three cheers for shooting at the county fair! I would do this again in a heartbeat, although I wish I'd brought some external lights of some sort. This was my first session with the new d300S, and it was a blast... but I'm pretty sure my subjects had a lot to do with that. Lindsay and I have been friends since the summer before 9th grade, when we bonded at cheerleading camp over a love for the rap tune "Big Poppa" :) We've been tight ever since, but this was our first photo shoot together!

Lindsay and Matt went the non-traditional route and decided to elope our senior year of college (well, my senior year, since I had 2 of them). It was crazy and secret and such a big deal (at the time), but because of that they never had any fun couple pictures taken. Which is where I come in... And I will let the pictures speak for themselves. It was a b.l.a.s.t.
