I love visiting friends in new places! And so I was ecstatic when Seth and Michelle invited me to Vail, Colorado to photograph their family. Talk about a dream session. I first met Seth and Michelle and their two beautiful daughters Ziva and Maya down in Florida. They actually camped right next to my Casita in their beautiful retro Jeep camper. Last week, we met up again and camped right in downtown Vail. This was my first time visiting Vail and I got the full tour including a gondola ride up a mountain. I woke up to a babbling creek and a delicious breakfast downtown. Then photographed Michelle at the Nefesh Mountain Bluegrass Shabbat on top of a mountain in downtown Vail, Colorado. Check out this blog post to see photos of this amazing mountaintop celebration. Then I felt really spoiled because I got to photograph Seth and Michelle’s gorgeous family in the mountains of Vail. These four were an energetic bunch and I had lots of fun chasing them around. Zika and Maya were especially cute (and so well behaved all cuddled in their blanket) when mom and dad decided to go off for a few photos on their own.

Thanks Seth and Michelle for showing me around Vail! I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
