Cap Hill mornings

I have been wanting to step out of my comfort zone and create with different people in the Denver area. Most of you who have been following along from the beginning know that Matt and I love creating together and it has been and always will be one of our favorite things to do as a couple. We both share that passion and visual eye for things and because of being together for so long it's become such a natural process for us, but lately I have a lot of free time and he works full time so I said to myself why not work with other creatives and practice being more comfortable in front of someone else's lens? someone completely new to me and just see what happens! So I did just that, I posted something on my IG stories about collaborating with someone completely new and I was surprised a handful of people reached out. I've always been so used to shooting with my husband and never realized at the moment of shooting with someone else I get super awkward and uncomfortable, but the only way that was going to change is by stepping out of that comfort zone. Some of you may know I wasn't born and raised in the USA, so English is my second language and I used to feel so nervous talking to new people because I was always afraid that I sounded bad or stupid while speaking English, but I let that fear go a long time ago and realized I have to be me and accept that some people are going to understand me and like me for who I am and others may not get me and that's ok too. So, as most people do when you have a fear or you just don't feel comfortable doing certain things (In my case shooting with strangers) I was glad to have stepped out of that social awkwardness I get whenever someone I just met takes my photos. I was happy to have connected with Kimberly, a photographer based in Denver. We both have been following each other's work for some time and so I thought why not give this a try. We met up at a coffee shop one morning and just went for a walk as we got to know a little bit more from one another we ended up creating such beautiful shots in areas where I never even though of shooting before, it's crazy what you can create when you connect with other people and see things with a different perspective. We must have walked not even two miles (probably way less than that) but found the cutest spots to shoot and I couldn't have been more happy with the results. Kimberly was sweet and super easy to shoot with and made me feel comfortable so I'm looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone more often.
