Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival | Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Every winter the beautiful town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado celebrates the snowy season with their annual Winter Carnival.  This was Angela and my first time in Steamboat and we found the city to be very enchanting.  All around I could hear the entire town warmly converse with each other while I walked down the sidewalk in my Sorrels, successful in my attempt to stay warm.  With my camera in one hand and a wonderful latte from Off the Beaten Path to help keep the warmth, we wandered the festivities and found there’s a very good reason why Steamboat is called Ski Town, USA.  Saturday was the day of the Street Slalom and Skijoring competitions right on the main strip:

Saturday night was the Night Extravaganza which included an impressive fireworks display with skiers going down the runs with an assortment of fireworks shooting off their bodies:

During the grand finale of the Night Extravaganza, the city of Steamboat Springs set off the largest firework ever launched in America, a 500 pound behemoth!  Here’s a video of it going off 1 mile above the mountain tops:

Sunday morning was the Winter Carnival Parade that travels down the main strip of Steamboat.  It was literally the perfect day to celebrate winter:

A very special thank you to Brad, Maria and family of Alan-Bradley Windows and Doors for hosting us for the celebration.

Vickie Savinski - I love the shots of the teams of horses! I also like the unplowed streets in this quaint, old Colorado town.

Flashes of Hope | Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles

Here’s our 2nd photoshoot with Flashes of Hope at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.  I admittedly felt a bit exploitative posting these photographs on our blog.  I almost didn’t for this reason but felt not doing so would have been a disservice for these children….I hope to inspire people viewing these photographs to donate anything they can to help photograph other children with Cancer for their families.  After our first shoot, I was sent a note from one of the mothers of a child we photographed.  She wrote “She loved posing and her beauty is breathtaking – her real soul comes through.  These pictures will always help me remember how far we have come and that even in her darkest times, she is just a child, a beautiful child.”  Please visit Flashes of Hope to send any donation you can.  Everyone involved that makes these shoots happen does so on a volunteer basis.  The families receive prints of every photograph we capture of their child.

Childhood Cancer | Flashes of Hope | Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

One of our recent community projects is volunteering with Flashes of Hope, a non-profit organization whose goal is to photograph every child with cancer until every child is cured.  We photographed this beautiful group of kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.  Nobody I have ever seen through the lens of my camera is as striking as these children.  Their energy and attitudes, despite their opposition was incredible.  Again, please visit Flashes of Hope to send any donation you can.  The families receive prints of every photograph captured of their child.
