Colorado weather is quite the trickster. The day started out incredibly gloomy and windy and it rained a little bit too. So, Becky and I had our fingers crossed that when the time came for her session, the weather would be decent enough that we wouldn't have to reschedule. And by golly, it was actually quite nice! It was cloudy, which made it cooler so we weren't roasting but that is why most of these images have a "cooler" feel to them. At the very end of the session we were blessed with the sun! It decided to grace us before it settled down behind the mountains and I was loving that little bit of light.
Becky is another girl in my brother's class. And I just can't get over how much everyone grows up in four years. Some more than others. But I remember when a lot of these "kids" were freshmen and now they are in their final year of high school, preparing for the next big chapter of their lives. I enjoyed our session and Becky is quite the character, who is a loving girl and spends a lot of time with her horse. (Which I was beyond happy to photograph with her!) She has a nice smile and we laughed over silly things and she told me crazy stories about her farm. This girl also has an awesome serious "senior" face. You know... the whole, "gazing in to the future, pondering what life will be like" look. I wish I could looks serious without looking like I was pissed off.
OH YEAH! How could I forget to mention? Becky got stung on the nose by a wasp during our session. She also stepped on a rusty nail (luckily it went between her toes), got cobwebs all over her, practically fell in to a river, and possibly touched some poison ivy. It was an adventure, that's for sure.
