Our goal: to tell each person’s unique story through authentic imagery.
Amanda and Tyler just moved to Boulder, Colorado a little over 6 months ago to follow the calling they felt since 2017. Their first visit was September of 2017 and then they visited again in May of 2018. A month after that second visit, they sold their house in Connecticut, and drove to Colorado and officially moved their life to Boulder in September of 2018. When Robert and I were planning our trip to Colorado this season, I got connected to Amanda through her social media account. Amanda is a yoga instructor and healthy living educator. Tyler is a sales representative with a gift for telling hilarious stories. These two exemplify what it means to not just sit by waiting for life to happen to you, but RUN after what you believe in.
From Amanda: After visiting Boulder once, we knew we wanted to move there. We have always LOVED mountains and the Colorado Rockies were calling us! We immediately fell in love with the active/outdoors lifestyle that the community of Boulder embodied. We had been searching for a place that had the same values as us and Boulder has all of them: healthy eating, active lifestyle, strong sense of community, appreciation for the environment , and the list goes on!
For our photo shoot, we hiked up the Flagstaff Mountain trail to get lost in the beauty. Our hike started with lots of sun, then it snowed halfway through the shoot, and we ended with the golden hour which was truly majestic. Colorado, you are a beautiful place to photograph. Amanda even got her yoga on while overlooking the Colorado Rockies. I’m in love with how their story showed throughout their lifestyle session. Taking initiative and moving to a special place like Colorado in order to connect with other, likeminded people who care, was inspirational to see in Tyler and Amanda.
