Hi, I’m Anna, welcome to my blog. Relax a minute, kick your feet up and take a peek at my work. If you look around a bit, you’ll see that I absolutely ADORE people! They’re my favorite subjects. There’s just something about capturing someone’s soul. It’s quite an attractive job to me.

I specialize in natural lighting photography…there’s just a special warmth to it. I love photographing ordinary events in a unique way. Such an adventure!

What do you say? Shall we jazz things up a bit? :)

::Colorado Immortalized - My Trip::

SO.......
I did it!!!  I took TONS of pictures on that wonderful vacation...over 900, to be exact.  *gulp*
Oh but don't worry!  I'm not about to show you that many.  ;)  I know I said in my last entry that I would post my Top-10 from the trip when I got back.
Tsk tsk...how silly of me.
I should've known I'd end up with more favorites than that!  In fact, I have my Top-11 favorites here for your viewing pleasure.
...PLUS a bunch of others that I just couldn't resist sharing.  Those speak to me more from the memories than from the artistic qualities they posses.  ;)

Well, here goes!  And I sure hope you enjoy ALL of them as much as I do...and not just the Top-11.  :)

Frosty leaves in Aurora one morning.

Another shot from that same morning.  :)

Stretching watermelon salt-water taffy in the Georgetown Valley Candy Company.  So.  Incredibly.  Good.

Sunset near Red Rocks.  *sigh*  Oh, to be there once more!

Do not touch.  It's sharp.

My first attempts at nighttime, city photography.

Photobucket
At 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver.

There you go!  There are my Top-11!  And I've got several more for y'all down below.  :)
If you are interested in purchasing any Fine Art Prints from this collection, feel free to email me at
annagracephotographs@gmail.com
We can discuss products, sizing, and pricing.  These would make great gifts for home decor.
I know I'll be getting some made!  ;)

Photobucket
The old, rusty truck we passed everyday.  :)

Photobucket
Frosted Evergreens.

And icicle in Breckenridge.  It was tasty.

Pooch.

The windy mountains of Breckenridge.

Red Rocks...mind-blowingly huge!

My delicious pear-brulee...somethin...yummay!  Courtesy of D-Bar Desserts in uptown Denver.
By far the most tangy, custard-y, sweet, crispy, icy, vanilla-ish, crunchy, caramel-y thing I've EVER put into my mouth.  *two thumbs way up*

And last, but not least...the gang.
I know.  We're disheveled, uncoordinated, sunglass-ed, and pixilated...
But it's US!!!  And I wouldn't have it any other way.  :)
Photobucket
Katie, Ellie, and Em,
I love you girls, with all my heart...and can't WAIT for another adventure!

I sure hope this gives you a good idea of the grandeur which is Colorado!  
Who knows?  I may do a "Part 2" post...there ARE about 900 pictures, after all.  ;)
Blessings,

~Anna Grace

I definitely think you should post a part two.
And a part three.
And maybe a part four.
"... there ARE about 900 pictures, after all." :)

It looks like you had a wonderful time!
I was so jealous when I saw the picture of the mango, strawberry, and chocolate-almond gelato; gelato is the best! :)
