Durango Fashion Week.... a few months ago. :)

While putting together some images for Shannon Iris, the stylist, for Durango Fashion Week. I decided I should up load some of my images. Fashion week was in October of 2008. The first and maybe last??? :(

Beautiful Carla was my last client on Friday before the weekend adventure started. She was the perfect woman to end a week with. To celebrate herself and her accomplishments Carla decided on her 40th B-day that she would try out for Ms. Colorado. As far as I am concerned she has already taken home the gold. What a stunning woman inside and out. I am so honored that she trusted me to help her with this process. I am attaching her slide show and some of my favorite images.

Hope and Charlie's March 14th Wedding

Hope was a stunner in personality and form! I loved her comment to me when we met in person for the first time two days before her wedding. "Kyla, I am 35. I waited this long to get married because I was not going to settle." I think it is safe to say that she did not settle. They make such a romantic match! Below is their wedding slide show.

YES! I have had such a fun week photographing women! On Tuesday I photographed Nikki. Below are some of my favorite photos. Check her out!

Queen L.

For a little inspiration in the off season I collaborated with my girlfriend Michelle Campbell ( to create a photo shoot with a "Queen Elizabeth" feel to it. Our inspiration for this was Lyndsay, well Lyndsay and her fantastic red hair! We were a bit limited in wardrobe and locations, but we persevered. Dare to Dress in Durango ( lent us the dress. We photographed in the General Palmer Hotel ( and in Jean Pierre's ( Both locations were awesome and very accommodating considering our last minute scrabble to find a place to photograph.

Photos above taken at the General Palmer Hotel.
Photos below taken at Jean Pierre's Bakery.

This dress was a little bit big on Lyndsay. We had to clip the back, but took the clips off for these two images. Below: Lynsay captured right after rescuing herself from a "boobie" shot. :)
