A Quick Portrait of Courtney

My wife and I celebrated her birthday with a night in Denver, and I decided to make a fast portrait.

Our original plan was to go out last Tuesday, but our little son Arden got terribly sick and it just did’t feel right leaving him with grandma. We were able to go out this past Saturday though and it turned into a beautiful evening.

We grabbed a drink and appetizer at the Ale House and then had dinner at one of my favorite Restaurants in Denver, Linger. It was a beautiful night celebrating my beautiful wife.

The battery to my camera actually died shortly in to the evening. I actually kinda didn’t mind. Sometimes I like just enjoying the evening without having to take pictures. Before it did though, I sat Courtney down for a couple of portraits on an interesting looking staircase. They are simple images and not much to write home about, but I need to do this more. My true passion is candid photography, but portraits can be very special and important in capturing somebody as they are. I think I need to make them a bigger part of my photography moving forward.
