Colors...I love color. And this family showed up with these bright and bold colors that go perfect with the sweet backdrop of fall. The location...Turkey Creek Ranch in Fort Carson. Absolutely stunning place. Big, tall trees with all their bright yellow and red leaves...a beautiful barn, trails to get lost in for the late afternoon, and then on the way out...a huge fenced in property holding about a dozen horses...roaming this wide prairie...with the beautiful Colorado Mountains in the background. Sigh...what a sweet place for me.
And this family, well you might recognize them from a previous session. I entered a nation wide photographer's contest (Becky Higgens Photography giveaway) and this family won! Such a sweet story and its why I chose them. Kari's hubby is in the miliatary and is often gone for 6 months to a year. His girls, Katlyn and Kinsey are crazy about him... Such a beautiful and sweet loving family. He's still away but will be back again in the spring.
Love the energy, the happiness, the horses, hay...yes, I get hay fever but it was worth all the itchy red eyes that happened on the drive home. ;p Here are a few pics from that late afternoon! Thank you to Turkey Creek Ranch for letting us use your beautiful ranch for a backdrop! :) Can't wait to bring my kids back.
