Happy Anniversary, Rick and Pat!

When John first contacted me about photographing his extended family outside of Idaho Springs, I had no idea that they were celebrating his parents’ 40th wedding anniversary (Rick and Pat look far too young to be married 40 years!) and that people would be coming in from all over the western United States.  And they had no idea that it would SNOW every minute of their late April weekend. No problem!  I had such a great time meeting and photographing everyone. (And I even left room in the parent/sibling photo to Photoshop in the one brother who could not make it to Colorado!) I loved their enthusiasm about trekking outside for a quick photo on the bridge. But the best part was taking photos of the 12 grandchildren outside; they were so cooperative and photogenic. Following is just a sample of the photos we captured. I am so glad I was invited to be a small part of this incredibly important weekend.


I love this photo because it was unplanned. Oh, to be looked at that way after 40 years! (And yes, those are snowflakes in the photos!)

    Wow, that’s a LOT of family. A lot of KIDS really! You can really tell it’s spring in Colorado. Snowing but obviously not very cold!
