Paper Christmas Trees

Are not these little paper trees the cutest?!  My daughter has been making them!  She came across a diy to make these cute little trees out of construction paper and she's made around 8 of them.  I really have no idea how she even does it.  She is definitely more crafty then I am!  Well today I just had to photograph them because they were too cute not to.  As I get my house decorated for Christmas I can not help but be inspired by the season so you will probably see more Christmas theme images around here....

Little red Christmas Truck with Christmas Tree photographed on crisp white background for Christmas decoration by Fort Collins Colorado Photographer Brenda Landrum.

Little Red Christmas Truck

These little Christmas trucks are everywhere!  I fell in love with them last Christmas and I guess many companies did, too.  I found this cute little truck at Target a week ago and he most certainly was coming home with me because I not only wanted it for decoration but also to photograph.  I really wanted to have a cute little wall print for Christmas!  So as soon as I got home I set up my white backdrop and photographed it.  I'm all about simple setups, keeping it crisp and clean so that it is timeless to use in many...

The Heirloom Market Website Project by Fort Collins Photographer Brenda Landrum.

Where Have I Been?

I have been neglecting the blog. Way back on November 8th I made a post on Facebook about how my brain was going 1000 mph and just could not organize my thoughts to blog. I have been working really hard. My work life started to change in October when I was approached to be a Virtual Assistant and then I took on a big project for The Heirloom Market. Managing time has gone to a whole new level!! The natural thing that happens when more is added is that something gets left behind and that my friends is the blog and...

The Miller Family

This family is so much fun to photograph! The outfits are always amazing, they come with cheerful attitudes and they let me be creative. It's always great to catch up with them with where they are at these days. Their kids are some of the most well behaved kids. The oldest is quite the gymnast and she can't help but stand in her gymnast stance which I thought was so cute. I get an absolute kick out of the outnumbered brother! The littlest one, well she's just so darn cute. I can...

The Capes Family

I adore seeing the Capes Family every year for their family session. Sometimes it's the 4 of them and other times extended family joins them. It's such a joy to see their beautiful girls grow up and I love hearing about what new things they are into. This year we had gorgeous fall color as the backdrop and I love the colors they chose for their outfits. The girls always have the cutest dresses and bring their fun personalities! I like to let them let those personalities come out and I just shoot away to...

5x7 Loose Leaf November Calendar with bright orange sunflower by Still Life Photographer Brenda Landrum of Northern Colorado.

It’s November!

Yesterday I was really sad to see October end.  I was not feeling the leap into November and the Holiday rush at all.  Today I'm warming up to it.  Last night we carved a pumpkin and roasted some pumpkin seeds (so good) and that started the feeling like I'm ready for the Holiday's.  I woke up this morning thinking about Christmas gifts!!  So far I have purchased one gift so I need to get on that.  So today I changed out my October calendar to the November one and gathered a few little props like these weathered barn-wood slats, pressed leaves,...

Recap of image taken in October from Brenda Landrum, Fort Collins Colorado Photographer.

Goodbye October

"I can hardly believe October is over!!" That is what my Mom text me today and I completely agree! October has really flown by and it seems like we just started the month. This month has been really busy with a lot of fun new things that are going to be coming! I got to see my most loyal clients for their annual photoshoot. Spent time learning new things which I love to do. And I also let inspiration grab me to run away with. Our Fall has been one of the most beautiful in...

Black and white photography, black and white texture, low key photography, images by Brenda Landrum

Autumn Texture

I have been collecting the leaves that have been falling from our trees.  I find one's that I like, mostly because of shape of the leaves together on one stem.  I then placed them onto my desk into a pile, one on top of the other, knowing that they would start to dry and curl.  Since they were all together they curled around each other which I really liked.  Their texture also started to really show up as they dried.  One day it hit me that that was the day to photograph them and so I went to work setting...

Photographers … Ann Street Studio

I love finding photographer’s who inspire others.  Photographer’s with beautiful imagery and great stories.  I thought it might be fun to share some of the photographer’s that I love to follow online with all of you so that you might explore their work if you had never heard of them before.  Today is … Ann Street Studio Jamie and Kevin invented Cinemagraphs years ago and now everyone is doing them it seems!  I discovered their work through their Cinemagraphs, I couldn't get enough of them!  Every photo I'd scroll to I'd wait to be mesmerized by what was about to move.  Now...

Goals for 2016 … The Home Stretch

I'm tired.  Is this a weary end to the year and goals?  I have gotten a really good insight into how my year changes from season to season.  The first part of the year (Jan-Apr) you feel like you are just getting started on goals and there is a lot of grace you give to yourself in working on them.  Plus the Holiday's are done and the rush is over so things are just calmer.  The middle of the year (May-Aug, summer) I do awesome at my goals and keeping my day organized.  In summer our days seem longer and...

An overlook at photographs from September by Landscape & Still Life Photographer Brenda Landrum of Northern Colorado.

Goodbye September

It's hard to believe that September is already done.  Feels like it just started!  September was filled with some fun projects.  Getting to display some pieces in The Brew in Longmont, CO.  Preparing for The Heirloom Market's first Fall Market and getting to be there to experience it.  Technically we went to Yellowstone in August but I shared the images in September.  I guess today it feels good to end September feeling good about all that was done. Thanks for dropping by today friends! B....

The Heirloom Market Fall Market Experience from photographer Brenda Landrum of Fort Collins, Colorado.

The Heirloom Market Fall Market Experience

Saturday was The Heirloom Market's first Fall Market that was held in Bridgeport Nebraska.  Wow.  I have been in the behind the scenes of the idea of doing this and although I had an inkling that a lot of people would show up I don't think I had any idea truly how many would come.  I photographed the event and watched as people came and went carrying the treasures they found within the booth's.  Some would take their treasures to their vehicle and then come back for more.  Many people stayed for hours shopping and enjoyed the donuts on a...

The Heirloom Market's first Barn Sale & Fall Market in Bridgeport Nebraska

The Barn Sale & Fall Market

Pretty excited that this weekend is the weekend a lot of people have been anticipating and it is finally here!  I will be headed to good 'ol Nebraska for The Heirloom Market's first Barn Sale & Fall Market where several of my photography pieces will be available. Tonia and I have collaborated with this project on many levels with a photo shoot for the marketing images, to designing the tickets and flyers, and with image selection and fun ways to display in her booth.  I can't wait to see how it all comes together on Saturday! I hope you are headed to Bridgeport,...

Fall Family Sessions

It's that time of year when we are drawn to the colors of the trees and want our family photographed!!  This year has been really different for me in that I haven't had many portrait sessions and so you haven't seen to many images of families from me.  That does not mean that I am no longer doing them, it's just been a different year for me and that's ok! Today I thought that I would share what my availability is this Fall for Family Sessions.  If you are wanting to book a session date and see one below that works...
