One of my favorite trends in the photo community has been the spirit of openness and collaboration that photographers now share. I have been blessed to meet many terrific photographers since I moved here to Colorado Springs in January of 2009. Last week I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with Kristi from Kristi Crosson Photography, Paul from AM/PM Photography, and Tracy from TQ Photography. Kristi was gracious enough to arrange for some models and we all met at Monument Valley Park for an evening shoot. All the models did a terrific job! I’ll spotlight them one at a time, in alphabetical order. First up, Ariel!
