Leading Into Spring

This location is magnificent!! A hidden gem nestled between office buildings and a few residential structures. I heard a tip about it and immediately hopped in my car to check it out, and WHOA it did NOT disappoint. Because springtime in Colorado can be VERY fickle, as soon as I saw how beautiful it was, I set about securing a model for the following morning. Some of you may remember cutie Raven from earlier this year, well, this is her four-year-old older Aussie sister, Jordan – I guess Australian Shepherds are like potato chips, you can’t have just one. 😝 From Jordan’s mom: “I love the energy of the Australian Shepherd. They are so expressive and communicative. They enjoy life and are always up for an adventure.”

True to that sentiment, Jordan proved to be the ideal model for our last-minute session. She eagerly explored the surroundings, wagging her booty in anticipation of each new pose. As we ventured through the landscape, Jordan's playful demeanor shone through, her willingness to climb on rocks, stand on stairs, and pose on bridges a testament to her cooperative spirit. From Jordan’s mom: “Jordan is a super sweet girl which is especially amazing since she is a Covid puppy and when I picked her up, everything had shut down and she had little exposure to people. I think she is making up for that lost time because she loves people and always has to say hi.”

From Jordan’s mom: “Jordan loved Ginger and kept giving her kisses.  She was angling for the awesome treats she had.” 🥰

For the record, we held the session on Tuesday morning, and on Saturday morning Mother Nature dumped approximately four inches of snow on the area. 🤣❄️ I’m so glad I trusted my gut and made the session happen! #springtimeincolorado

From Jordan’s mom: “I am originally from Chicago and had just watched the documentary "The Last Dance". I have always loved Michael Jordan and thought that Jordan was going to be my "last dance" so I named her after Michael Jordan.”
