Flying high in the skies on my trip circling the East Coast.
Here are the pics I took on today’s hike in Colorado Springs. It’s so nice to get back to daily walks with my camera like I was doing in California. Until the weather turns, I’ll be exploring a different area each time. This is definitely one of the most gorgeous outdoor states there is (despite that it gets cold!)
These were taken on our way to Hawaii. The shot of the skies horizon is the same pic, just edited.
The top photo makes for my favorite post card yet. Purchase yours at Life Inspired Photography by Jessie Jeanine.

These are a couple of favorite edits which might make beautiful postcards.
I would love to be able to spend more time in San Diego, California sightseeing sometime. While living on the west coast, I have not gotten to explore this beautiful state as much as I have wanted to, yet. That happens often though during our travels it seems. We’ve been all over the country, but I’m always so busy being a single mom, creating businesses, and just trying to get us settled that I don’t get around, camera in hand, as much as I might hope.
Life is what happens while we’re busy making plans.
However, every time I have been able to venture out, I am amazed at some of the things I see here. This is a beautiful state, offering much to titillate your five senses. If you ever get a chance to visit, I recommend it. If you are fortunate enough to live here, give thanks daily and enjoy it!

These were taken at the zoo last year in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Besides offering fine art prints and cards, my work will appeal to those interested in stock photography as well.

I am not so much a portrait photographer as I am a fine art photographer. I have a journalistic approach to both writing and photography and enjoy most what comes naturally. Capturing the details which are already there, in a unique and inspiring way, is what I do best.

United is the core we share
So none stands alone.
Roots anchored deep within
Let the mighty winds blow.
Doc’s Gasoline Alley and the Barker House are located in Manitou Springs, Colorado. This quaint little tourist town full of friendly people was one of my favorite places to visit while shooting on location in Colorado.
Believe it or not, this became one of my favorite objects to photograph while shooting on location in Manitou Springs, Colorado with a colleague.
Thus far, my editing skills are fairly basic. I really enjoy seeing the different styles and looks you can get from the same picture though. I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 and Lightroom 4 although, there seems to be a definite learning curve to the software.

I found the shack while traveling across country somewhere in the U.S. I was driving down all these side roads that led to know where, hoping to find undiscovered treasures I could capture. After all, some of the greatest pictures come from such places. I stumbled across this after hiking through some fields.
This is the Alley Springs Mill located near Eminence, MO. We used go to a campground there every year for a two week gathering in the summer. There are some great rivers to play in and beautiful places to go hiking.
The pics with the blue looking water are unedited – don’t ask me how my camera (a Nikon D90) captured such gorgeous color.
