Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Stained Glass

One of the lovely windows at Saint Mary's Cathedral, downtown. I took this in August of 2019 when I was there to shoot a wedding.

For Those About to Rock

Here's one last snapshot that I took in Cheyenne Canon several days ago. To be sure, this isn't a terribly creative image, it was just a shot to test the light as I was taking senior portraits at the time. But I do like the unusually square form of this chunk of granite, and the way it perches just so on the other rocks.

And now, for your listening pleasure...

Another quick snap I took several days ago in Cheyenne Canon. I noticed this old tree trunk in the middle of the creek, and honestly I don't know how a tree could have even grown there! Certainly the water has nowhere else to go but here, so it's not like any time in the recent past this particular spot didn't have a stream flowing right over it. It's a mystery!

Fall in Cheyenne Canon

I was in Cheyenne Canon a week ago Sunday, and although I was actually there to take senior portraits, I did get a couple of quick snapshots of my surroundings when I got a chance. I'll post another one tomorrow.

Sunday Style!

I went downtown this morning to see if I could find any stylish people but I was disappointed in my quest, so I decided to use this snapshot that I took at Yobel Market a couple of months ago. Consider today's post to be a PSA that they've moved downtown to 11 E. Bijou Street, which is great because that makes it closer to my house! (The last time I featured this little boutique, they were still located in the Ivywild School.) Anyway, just think how easy it would be to accessorize this cute little frock. It's a great foundation for a multitude of looks. You could wear it with boots, a scarf, a beret, leggings, sandals, a cardigan, a hoodie, a denim jacket... and any bright color would look great against that grey.  Talk about versatile! And did you know that everything at Yobel Market is not only stylish, it's also ethically sourced and purchased? It's a win win!

Some autumnal prettiness from Cheyenne Canon last weekend. This is my favorite time of year. 💙

A perspective from Gold Camp Road, looking down into Cheyenne Canon. I think this might be Mount Cutler (but don't quote me on that).
