Recently on Film: Breckenridge with Stephen and Racheal

Welcome to the first of our new series, Film Friday. Most of our important posts are shot on Digital, but as many of you know, I love to shoot film as well. I almost always have some kind of film camera on me. These Film Friday posts will be a way for me to share some of theses moments and memories captured on film. 

One disclaimer: I have a fairly large backlog of film so many of these posts might be pretty years old. But that is kind of the fun of film isnt it? It takes some time until you get them developed and you never know exactly what you are going to get.

This first post is from about a year ago when we went exploring around Breckenridge with my brother Stephen and his wife Racheal. Mountain towns in the Winter are a cool experience. We need to get up there again this year.

Adventuring on Sugarloaf Mountain

This post is coming a bit late, I'll preface with that. But about a month ago we decided to get up in the mountains for the day.

We needed a new photo for our Gilmerino project and we decided the mountains was the place to go. We drove up to Sugarloaf mountain, found a good spot, stopped the car and immediately saw a freakin moose like 50ft from us. It was crazy! She was so calm and peaceful. She saw us but since we didn't seem to be a threat to her she mostly ignored us. She ate some of the trees and eventually just lay down. It was really cool to see. Moose are somewhat rare and fairly elusive in Colorado. 

Since the purpose of this mini-adventure was to get pictures of Courtney for our project she is in a lot of this blog. She is beautiful enough to fill the whole blog anyways. 

The picture below is the one we ended up picking for the project. We loved the picture plus it showed the size of her belly the best. She is so pretty right? 


We picked the last photo as the one for the project because it showed her belly, but the set below is actually my favorite. The scene and the lighting was so perfect for pictures. The first picture below is one of my favorites of Courtney I have ever taken. She looks so peaceful and happy. 

On the way back we took what I thought was a shortcut back to the main road. It ended up being one of the toughest Jeep trails I have ever done. It was super fun but pretty scary. I don't have too many pictures of it because I was just trying to safely get back. We did it though. The Commander did way better than I would have ever expected. It really is a beast off road.
