Enjoying the Seasons | Portraits of Nature in Evergreen Colorado

Wildflowers Hiwan Homestead Evergreen Colorado

I’m making time to stop and see the beautiful flowers that are blooming like mad all over town.

Hiking through the parks and along the sweet walking paths around the Lake and downtown, there are so many gorgeous blooms. Summer is so short here – I’m glad they’re really coming out in force this year – and I’m appreciating every day of it.

What can you do for yourself today to honor the season you’re experiencing today? Visit a farmer’s market, dust off the bike and take it for a spin, lay in the hammock and pay no attention to the time, set up the sprinkler and embarrass the kids in front of the neighborhood… However you choose to pass the time, I truly hope you find the gift in every day you live.

Introducing Muse Mini Sessions

Your feedback to the Muse Sessions (www.muse-sessions.com) has been amazing and heart-warming. It means so much to me that this concept connects to so many of you – the idea of taking our time together to a higher level and capturing images that tell a story and let YOU tell your story. I love it.

Our recent gallery show had a great turn out – I loved seeing each and every one of you there and appreciate that you came out for our Muses. ♥

I believe this is so important and such a soul-strengthening experience, I want to make Muse Sessions accessible to more people – everyone who loves this should be able to experience it. I’ve created a couple of options to make it easier to say ‘Heck ya, Katy-lady – sign me up!’

1. Payment Plans. Break up payments to work with your budget. Whether that means 2 – or more – payments, we will accommodate.

2. Mini Muse Sessions! These are slightly shorter Muse sessions and – while you’ll still get amazing attention and images – the goodies are trimmed down and your gallery show will be with more ladies. But perhaps these are perks for you?

These Mini Muse Sessions will run on a trial-basis through Summer and their availability will be limited to no more than 2 sessions/week. If I find they’re not a good fit, I’ll take ’em off the menu!  These would be a great idea for our high school ladies – you’re growing quickly and you’ll be off into the big ol’ world before we know it. These are also great for our sweet ‘Tweens – just blossoming out of childhood and finding your voices. These sessions strive to capture the moment now and tell a beautiful story that will be treasured by her – and her family – for a lifetime.

Sessions are booking now, starting in mid-July through late September.

Conformity is Absolutely Impossible | Muse Portrait Photography Sessions in Evergreen, Colorado

 

Ballet Dancer in Boots in the Trees Outside in Nature

YOU are one of a kind.

There is ONLY ONE of you on this Earth.

— Conformity is absolutely impossible —

It is your time to be you.

Shine on, sistah soulja.

—————————

I heard a teacher say that if we choose not to honor our uniqueness – that thing that makes us special and different, we are creating a resistance. And so much resistance that the energy it takes to stop the natural flow is incredible. A HUGE amount of energy is used in stopping us from being our true selves. Wow.

If we can realize when we’re throwing up blocks and instead turn it around and use that energy to nurture ourselves and our uniqueness, imagine how truly awesome that would be. A billion amazing souls sharing their gifts with each other.

I’m in! You with me?

We need to make some t-shirts to show we’re a part of the non-conformity club. 🙂

 

 

 

Light and Dark ~ In the Flow | Muse Portrait Session in Bear Creek, Kittredge Colorado

Our stories are not so simple and we are not definable by a single word or a single phrase.

We are people who have lived through challenges and joys – we’ve reached out to help others and we’ve turned away from those who have hurt us.

I find an image can tell a more complete and compelling story than words alone.

If you’ll play along for a moment… Looking at the image above, what thoughts pop into your mind about this woman, her situation, her thoughts? How did she get here?

I bet your ideas are different than mine and just as (if not more, of course) interesting.

Imagery lets the imagination flow in any direction. And I’d love to hear what popped into your mind as you thought through this image.

Inspired by Japan | Kimonos in the Mountains of Evergreen Colorado

Kimono portrait evergreen colorado

 

We called the above collection of images “Bento Box“. These Muse sessions are about fun and play and connecting to that inner quality that is uniquely yours.

Tiffany loves all things Japanese. She will hunt down antique kimonos on ebay, her wedding reception was at a Japanese restaurant, her honeymoon was a trip to Japan and her bridal portraits – as you can see here – feature some of her favorite possessions from the Land of the Rising Sun.

What is it that makes us connect to something so much? Is it from something we remember from childhood? Is it something we’re born with? Something that simply fascinates us for no clear reason? Perhaps something from a past life… Fun to ponder and try to learn a bit more about who we are and how and why we are who we are.

Whomever you are, whatever you’re attracted to, whatever you love to see, whatever activities you love to do, whatever inspires you…. is something unique to you. Give it attention, honor it – you are who you are because of it.

Toes in the Snows. | Muse Portrait Sessions in Evergreen, Colorado.

It’s time for a change. Time for something new.  Shake it up, wake it up. See what light shines through. kmp katymosesphotos 3789 Toes in the Snows. | Muse Portrait Sessions in Evergreen, Colorado.
It is with an inspired heart that I introduce Muse Sessions.
Life is too short – if we don’t honor our gifts as best as we can, we do the world and ourselves a disservice.
Muse sessions are all about connecting to that spirit within you that wants to be a part of something bigger, creative and passionate.
Why are these sessions different?
They are more demanding of both you and me. We collaborate with ideas and images that inspire us – talk about what makes your heart sing.
You as Muse.
You inspire, we collaborate and create something exceptional that is an honor to your life, your family and your legacy.
From our session, we’ll cull our favorite images and I’ll add some editing magic.
These images will then be featured in a gallery show, bringing you into the story of Art. This gallery event can be just for you, for everyone you know, and for everyone who can hear you shouting from the rooftops.
After the gallery show, these images will be yours – for you, for loved ones, for public display, the possibilities are endless.
And, because we love tangible, tactile things – pretty things wrapped up with string – you’ll receive a hardcover image book, holding our favorite Muse images. Something to enjoy anywhere.
If you connect to this – if you feel a little pull when you read about this – please send me a note. Let’s chat. I am so passionate about creating this for you – honoring you and being inspired with you.

The forces of nature.

The forces of our nature.

How often do we find ourselves falling into the same routines of our nature? When we’re not paying attention, we can lose sight of who we are and what we want for ourselves. We continue on every day, finding ourselves in a groove. And this groove grows, deeper and wider every day. The more time and energy that go into it, the more we grow into that space. If this is a place that is where you want to be, that is amazing and so powerful – be proud. But, if you realize you’ve meandered from where you want to be, look to find a new outlet – perhaps small – and start sending your time, energy and love there and see what happens. The more we direct our attention and our time towards what we love, the more our true path will become clear.
