2012 Calendar Shoot: Day 2


We started Day 2 with a 4:00 am hair and makeup call for Margaret and Heather for a beautiful sunrise shot at Lake Dillon. We were fortunate enough to have our friend Rick donate his sailboat for the morning. First up was Heather on the bow of the sailboat “Mischief” with the Colorado sunrise reflecting off the water. It made for an absolutely gorgeous shot to start off our second day. Next up was Margaret, who posed gracefully in front of the main sail. Her blue and white striped suit certainly fit the nautical theme of the morning shot. Although the weather was chilly, both girls toughed it out and ended up with the perfect Rocky Mountain lake snapshot.

The second photo session of the day was Kristin back in the lobby of our “home base” hotel – the Ritz Carlton. The fireplace was roaring (good thing because it was raining outside!) It was a shot that definitely depicts the entire feel of the Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch.

The third shot of the day was Allyson and Bachelor, a 16 week old St. Bernard puppy. Bachelor, named after Bachelor Gulch, is the 7th “Bachelor” for the Ritz Carlton. The shot took place along side of Ritz Carlton-Bachelor Gulch. Although the puppy was excited (and distracted!), the pictures of Allyson turned out great. It was a fun and playful shot. Not everyone is lucky enough to shoot with a dog let alone a puppy that is as sweet as Bachelor.

Last shot of the day was Toni! Our design team got her all ready to go in her Blue and Orange Broncos bathing suit. She looked absolutely stunning. We brought her up to the top of the mountain for a gorgeous sunset shot and it began to downpour! Although the landscape with the mountains and wildflowers looked gorgeous in the rain, Toni’s hair and makeup wouldn’t hold up so we moved her sunset shot to the next day.

Seven cheerleaders are done shooting and we have another 19 shots to go! All the ladies are looking beautiful and I can’t wait to tell you about all the exciting shots to come!
