Michelle and I met on a gray afternoon on the University of Colorado campus. We almost cancelled our outdoor session, thinking it might rain any minute, but I’m so glad we moved forward. Cloudy days often provide some of the best portraits. Gray day photos tend to be soft with subtle contrast which I love! You can read Michelle’s full interview for the Wise Women Project here, and below are a few more of my favorites from our session.

The 2021 Wise Women Project features interviews and portraits of women over 50 with the goal of recognizing the many ways women contribute and provide inspiration to our community. These are their stories. Want to participate? Learn more here.
