Fort Collins Senior Session along the Powder River photographed by Brenda Landrum Photographer.

Abbey’s Senior Session

  I'm so excited to show you Abbey's senior session images today!  It has been a really long time since I have done a senior session and I could not have had a more lovely subject to step my foot back in.  Abbey is a quiet easy going young lady and was up for all of my ideas.  She did such a great job and I just love the images we captured together.  I especially love her in the pink!!  And with the Poudre River being a bit lower this time of year we were able to walk down to it...

September's installment of the Deconstruction Project which is taking a floral bouquet and arranging it as a flat lay, photographed by Still Life Photographer Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins Colorado.

September Floral Deconstruction

It's time for September's edition of the Deconstruction Project.  Now I have to admit, when I picked up this month's arrangement I was expecting something that looked fall, like sunflowers, but I received something that was still summery.  At first I was a little bit disappointed but as I have been enjoying it I have appreciated that bit of summery feel.  What I loved most about this one is the pink tipped roses and the pink berry stems.  Was really pretty with the cream flowers and all the greenery.  I'm loving seeing all the months images together, I love the...

August Floral Arrangement

Last month's floral arrangement was my favorite that I have received so far.  The colors, flowers used, placement and the vase was perfect in my opinion.  I was inspired to photograph it over and over again, playing with different setups.  It was actually really hard for me to pull it apart to do my deconstruction project and I probably waited too long but man it was just so beautiful. I don't think my husband fully knew what he was giving me when he decided to gift these monthly arrangements to me.  I don't think he thought each one would be documented...

Fort Collins Colorado Portrait Session of two sisters under a willow tree and with wild flowers photographed by Brenda Landrum

Silly Sisters Portrait Session

Oh these girls!!  I look forward to seeing them every year to hear about what things they are into and doing.  I also love the beautiful clothes mom seems to find for them.  Their personalities are very different, one loves to tell me all sorts of things and the other I have to ask a lot of questions.  They love to be silly, dance, whisper, give me bunny ears to make the other laugh, and just be adorable.  They are so much fun to watch together and witness their bond as sisters and I try to capture that as much...

The Bouquet Deconstruction Project, taking apart a beautiful floral bouquet and laying out each stem side by side, photographed by Fine Art Photographer Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins, Colorado.

August Bouquet Deconstruction

The bouquet for August was just stunning!  It was definitely my favorite yet.  If you are new to this little project of mine I thought that I might explain how this all started.  In the Spring my husband gifted me a monthly subscription to receive a floral arrangement each month.  He knows that I love flowers and that I also love photographing them so gifting me flowers each month is something he knew that I'd love. So each month I pick up my arrangement from a local flower shop.  From this a few projects have been inspired.  I first photograph the...

Rented the Fuji X-T2 from Borrowlenses.com and what I thought about it.

Rented the Fuji X-T2

I recently rented the Fuji X-T2 from Borrowlenses for a week and took it to Nebraska with me to play. I have had the X-T1 for a few years and although I loved the small size, retro look, and somewhat ease of use what I didn't like was the really slow focus and file quality. Please note that I have been comparing the X-T1 to my Canon 5D Mark III which has very quick focus and I've always loved the file quality plus it's a full frame sensor where the Fuji is not. I really wanted to use the X-T1...

Custom made potting bench by Farm Haus Designs in Alliance Nebraska, photographed by Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins Colorado.

My New Favorite Spot

In June I made a post on Instagram about how I had been thinking that a fun little potting bench would be so cute sitting out on my porch.  I didn't know if I could find something that would fit the small space though but liked the idea.  Then I got a comment from Stephany who owns Farm Haus Designs.  I spoke with her a little bit at The Heirloom Market's Spring Market in May when I was photographing her booth.  She had some really cute pieces!  Anyway, she told me she could totally hook me up with what I...

Books book and more books photographed by Fort Collins Colorado Photographer Brenda Landrum.

Books

I'm a big proponent for acting on something that inspires creativity.  It may come out amazing or it may not and instead be good practice.  I was inspired to create a book image back in May.  I had to play around with it for awhile to get the books laid out in a way that looked nice and also played with adding a flower.  The first 3 images below are me playing, moving things around, trying different things.  In the end I decided I liked a closer image with the books all the way to the edge, not one book...

Summer family session in Fort Collins under a set of Willow Trees photographed by Family Photographer Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins, Colorado.

Family Session Under The Willow Trees

I love this family!  Probably because I'm related to them but also because I love when we do a summer family session together.  When I think about them I think of summer and Hawaii so summer sessions are perfect.  This session also had a focus on the littlest one being 6 months old!  She is so stinking cute and that one little tooth peeking is adorable.  We used this great little spot with gorgeous willow trees for their session in Fort Collins, I love the background and atmosphere the willows supply. Thanks for dropping by today! Interested in a...

Sunset over the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs by photographer Brenda Landrum.

Weekend in Colorado Springs

Our family sort of loves going down to Colorado Springs when we get the opportunity to get away.  There are so many fun things to do there and the scenery is just breathtaking.  Last weekend before the 4th my husband was able to get an extra day off so we took off for the Springs and found a couple of things we have never done. This trip we stayed at the new Great Wolf Lodge.  The hotel is really nice and the theme is fun.  There are a lot of different things to do at the hotel in addition to the...

90th Birthday event celebration at The Tangled Tumbleweed in Scottsbluff, Nebraska documented by Family Photographer Brenda Landrum.

90th Birthday Celebration

Last weekend I had the absolute honor of photographing Shirley's 90th Birthday Celebration!  It was held at The Tangled Tumbleweed in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.  That place is so darn adorable!  They have some really fun home decor and gift items in their little shop area and then the restaurant side is really cool with rustic decor, 2 huge movable glass doors that open up to the outside and a patio.  Shirley's family and friends came to wish her a big happy birthday and everyone was so kind while I photographed them having a fun evening with her.  It was awesome to...

Mother and Daughter family session at Lake Minatare in Minatare, Nebraska photographed by Family Photographer Brenda Landrum.

Mother & Daughter Session at the Lake

I love these two!  I have had some amazing photoshoots with Mom and have seen her life change many times but the most special change is this little spunky girl.  She has the most amazing imagination and creativity!  As we went about our session I was amazed by how her imagination came to life.  We had their session at Lake Minatare in Minatare, Nebraska.  I hadn't been up there for years.  The water was so high (surprisingly) that there wasn't any beach to play on so instead we went to the old Lighthouse which ended up being perfect.  It was...

Family session of four cousin's in a garden by the Gering Golf Course in Gering Nebraska photographed by Family Photographer Brenda Landrum.

Little Cousin’s in the Garden

They are just precious aren't they!  I was asked to photograph these four little cuties last weekend while family was gathering for a fun event.  They asked me to come to a family member's beautiful home that is right beside the Gering Golf Course in Gering, Nebraska.  The yard was to die for!  I had to show my mom (who loves to garden) photos because it is stunning.  I had a fun time wrangling these four for photos and I have to give a big shout out to Charity who was a big help in getting them all together. ...

Monthly floral bouquet project where the bouquet is taken apart and laid flat by Fine Art Photographer Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins, Colorado.

June Deconstruction Image

I really loved this months bouquet colors!  The pink, purple, and splash of yellow & orange just really made me happy.  I actually took a lot of images of this bouquet, from the entire bouquet to single stems and then deconstructing it.  I will be sharing them in the near future.  This image plus April and May's image have been added to the Print Studio where they can be made into prints for home decor and gifts....

Family Portrait Session taken by a lake and with a canoe by Family Photographer Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins, Colorado.

Family Session at the Lake

This gorgeous family lives in an area where they pretty much have private access to this lovely lake.  They hop in their truck and in maybe 8 minutes they're at this lake where they love to fish, ride in their canoe, and just be together.  As we were talking about what they would like to do for their session I suggested doing it at the lake because I know their family loves spending time there.  Bringing the canoe along was an added bonus and something unique.  Plus we lucked out with gorgeous weather and sunset to add to their images! ...
