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!

Sunday Style!

I hit up the annual Colorado Springs Garden Tour over the weekend with a couple of friends, where I noticed this snazzy purse being carried by a fellow gardening enthusiast. What a perfect accessory for the activity at hand, right? When I asked her where she got it, she proudly replied, "I made it!" I wish I had such skills!

I spent all day working on the little wedding that I photographed a couple of weekends ago in Green Mountain Falls, so I thought I'd volunteer this test shot for the blog. This was taken with a long lens, as I was standing in the gazebo in the middle of the pond. As you can see, it was kind of dreary and rainy in that moment, but once the ceremony got under way, the sun came out, just like magic.

Cool Runnings

The last couple of days have been very grey and dull, and today was even quite chilly. I don't think it got over 55° F (13° C) around here. Not exactly incentive to go out and take pictures! So here's a throwaway shot from Nancy Lewis Park last Friday. Yes, I know that moving water is a frequent subject for me. That's because I really like to take pictures of moving water, duh. 😉

On Saturday I got to hang out with my old friend Heather, who was in the area visiting her dad. I don't get to see her much since she lives in Arizona, so it was great catching up! We had lunch in Manitou and then strolled around a bit. I noticed that the Cliff House has a new fountain in front. I think this one's a big improvement over the one that previously stood here. Not a terribly artistic photo or subject, but then again I was engrossed in conversation with Heather and wasn't exactly wearing my arty-farty hat in that moment.

If you're in the area, you should take a detour to Nancy Lewis Park sometime soon. All the water lilies are blooming and it's so pretty!

Sunday Style!

Spotted at the Pride Parade last Sunday. Cool bag! I also like the tutu.

Tiger Mom

Yesterday morning I killed time before an appointment by going to Palmer Park for a few minutes, and after that appointment I stopped by Nancy Lewis Park, where I found this momma duck keeping guard over her brood as they foraged for snacks. I think I count 11 ducklings in this picture. Then it was off to yet another appointment for me. Yesterday was a busy day!
