photos from rockies fan photo day...

I am a little behind in posting these photos, but back in July, my mom, sister and I went to Denver for a Rockies game. 
It was their "fan photo day"!! Before the game, fans get to go on the field to get photos with some of the Rockies players. We have done this before and we love it!! It is so fun to meet some of the players that we watch all the time! Unfortunately, the Rockies have had a bad season with a lot of injuries and struggles. But in spite of that, we have some really talented players and I am a big fan, win or lose! This was such a fun day!

photography | butterfly pavilion

One of the best places to visit in Denver is the Butterfly Pavilion!! I had been wanting to go for a while and I finally made it there this summer. As a photographer who loves butterflies, this was a dream!! They have a "rainforest" greenhouse filled with amazing tropical plants/flowers and over 1,000 butterflies, just freely flying around. You can walk around and watch them fly all over and land on all the pretty flowers. It is hot and humid in there, but so amazing!! Of course, I took a lot of photos... 
And here are some of the pretty tropical flowers...

Sorry if all of these photos were a bit overwhelming... I couldn't help myself!! It was such a fun experience and a really beautiful place. I can't wait to go again sometime!

travel | denver zoo

Here is a quick post of a little trip to the Denver Zoo! I always enjoy going to zoos and seeing all the different animals. 
I really loved seeing the Clouded Leopard... How amazing is that photo above?!?! Such a beautiful animal! There was a special exhibit just for a few baby Clouded Leopards. I could have watched them for hours. The babies were playing a lot which was beyond cute, but there were a lot of people watching them and the lighting was bad, so the photo below was as good as I could get...
