Joni is a senior at Fort Lewis College, about to graduate with a BS in Biology – I am so impressed! She was so much fun to photograph – up for anything – and from her stories, I can tell she’s fun and up for anything all the time. For example, her place of work won the “outhouse stuffing” contest during Snowdown Durango 2011 – they fit 20 people into a single porta potty! I am impressed with that as well – I can’t even imagine! We were going for Durango themed backdrops once we left the studio so we stopped along the river where the rafts put in and then headed up to the Lion’s Den for the view of the mountains. Plus, she is graduating from the Fort so the Lion’s Den was the perfect location. I loved her shoes and her hair looked amazing and it was also a good thing that she wanted to wear her Fort Lewis sweatshirt since it wasn’t all that warm outside – I am so ready for spring, but know we need more snow. So, congrats Joni and I hope you love these few of my faves!
