Beauty in Nature and Animals

I have always been inspired by the beauty in nature.  Mountain landscapes, scenic lakes and rivers, wild animals, and the changes the seasons brings each with it's own beauty make me want to snap endless photos
This page offers a collection of my favorite photos.

Down by the Tracks, Photo Shoot Hillsdale, Michigan

While in Michigan, I got to do a family photo shoot with my sister in law who is also a photographer, Magnolia, cousin Amy, cousin Aleecia, Josh and I, Nena (gramma) and some friends Brian and Rachel.   We had a great time and got a ton of great shots, I have added several of my favorites here.  The light was just perfect for the shots, if only Magnolia could be as interested in the camera as our niece Aleecia is.  

The sun was setting and it was just cool enough to be bearable as we set up our props and started snapping shots.  Even the animals were interested in what we were doing and they came out to check us out, a mother deer with her two fawns complete with spots, a baby squirrel and another deer from the other side of the tracks popped out to say 'hi.'  It was a beautiful sight and made for great photos and memories.

Mills Children Photo Session -- Sun and Shadows

Josh, Magnolia and I spent a half of a month in Michigan this June/July and while I was there, I was lucky enough to meet up with a friend from elementary and middle school for a photoshoot of her kids!  Mary and her two kiddos, Joe and Ann met me at Mrs. Stocks Park in Hillsdale, Michigan for a session on a bright and sunny day!  Immediately, I could see the shadows everywhere and I loved including the shadow of every object into my shots!  The kids ran around in the beautifully landscaped scenery of the park, which, if it was in Colorado, would be packed with people and dogs, yet its nearly empty each time I have been here.  A gem for a photo shoot!
