Camping {Colorado Photographer}

I’ve decided i may do a few personal posts from time to time. I decided a while ago that I should take more lifestyle and photojournalistic shots of my kids. One thing we love to do as a family is to go camping! Every year I make a book of our camping trips. Here are a few pictures of our last two camping trips.
