a woman sails on a boat while wearing sunglasses and drinking a beer


June 4, Colorado Sailing Adventure

Last month I was very fortunate to get out on one of Colorado’s lakes for a day of sailing. Although I attended one of the top sailing colleges in the country (as I always love to rub into my husband on the rare occasion we rent a Sunfish), I am not a great sailor. In fact, I am hardly a sailor at all, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming of my future boat and trips to the Caribbean. There is nothing like blue skies, hot sun, and leaning way out over the water on a little sailboat. Thanks to Ray and friends for getting me out there.

PS-I played around with my settings…less saturated, a little more gritty.

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
