FIND THE LOVE

FIND THE LOVE

I prefer to go into a shoot with zero expectations and having done little to no research. I’ve found that no matter how much I think I know about what’s going to happen during a particular session – what events are going to unfold, what the scene will look like, what challenges I’ll face – I’m always wrong. And those expectations can cloud my judgment in the moment. So I usually opt to go in cold, knowing that I have the experience to adapt in whatever ways necessary without any problems. And if something does go wrong, it’s not a big deal.

But this was different. Because this was a funeral.

WALK WITH AUTISM

WALK WITH AUTISM

As I entered the event space at Sloan’s Lake, I stared in wonder. Colossal bubbles wafting through the air, wriggling reptiles roaming free, eight-foot-tall pioneers moseying through the crowd, blinding white stormtroopers and some other kind of masked sci-fi character dealies I’m either too old or too unhip to have heard of. Where to even start? What kind of photographer’s dream had I just wandered into?

PREGAME GAME IS STRONG

PREGAME GAME IS STRONG

When Suman contacted me to ask if I could photograph her birthday festivities, she told me I’d be documenting her and her friends getting ready together and drinking before going out to the club (otherwise known as, in the parlance of our times, “pregaming”). I began to picture a few girls gathered in front of the mirror together, giggling and sipping on Cosmopolitans.

Naw.

MADE WITH LOVE

Alexandra Bagley knows how to party. If I were to ask you to list all of the items that should ideally be present at a 5-year-old kid’s birthday party, I guarantee you that Alex made sure they were present for her son’s celebration (and half of it she made by hand!) Lego-man shaped crayons: check. Party blowers: check. Homemade piñata: check. A trillion balloons, all of which the children dragged into the birthday boy’s room and freaked out about, causing a beautiful chaos that most photographers only dream of: check and check, my friends.

AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE AN ASC PARTY

AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE AN ASC PARTY

There are two great reasons to attend an Autism Society of Colorado fundraising event: the first being that it’s an incredible non-profit that makes a huge impact in the autism community by providing services and support to individuals and families affected by autism as well as education and advocacy to providers, caregivers, educators, and businesses. They truly make a difference.

And the second reason to attend an ASC fundraiser? They are SO. SUPER. LIT.
