New Blog and Website are Up!

Hi friends!  As promised my new blog and website are up and running! Please head over to libbieholmes.com and libbieholmes.com/blog and check 'em out! I'd love to hear what you think!

Since this is my portfolio website, most of the posts will be photography-related (natch), but if you were a fan of the style, design and food posts from here at My Lovely Surroundings, don’t fret. I’ll keep those going on the new blog as well. 

See you over in the new space!

Take care,

Guess What?!

My blog is moving! MLS (that's My Lovely Surroundings for those of you who don't live in Denver and therefore aren't forced to decipher acronyms on a daily basis) is now going to be a part of my brand new, super sexy, big-girl photography website. It will be a bit more photo-driven than MLS, but I hope you'll still come check it out! I'll send a link once its available, but I hope that explains my lack of blogging lately. Stay tuned lovelies!

Denver Walkaround

One of my favorite things to do with my camera is do a "walkaround" where I take my camera, give myself an hour and just take pictures of things I see and like.  Last fall, on a beautiful blue-sky day, I went out around Denver's Cap Hill neighborhood and shot some of the beautiful buildings I came across. I love shooting architecture and shooting buildings that you see everyday, but with a fresh perspective. I try to find out what makes each building interesting, then try to capture that with my camera. Here's a few of my faves from the day.

Katelyn and Steven Engagement

Ahhh! I had so much fun shooting Katelyn and Steven's engagement session this past weekend. Cutest. Couple. Ever. Seriously. I ventured up past Lyons to Katelyn's family horse farm for the session. It was absolutely breathtaking there and the two of them were so in love and comfortable in front of the camera. I'm so excited for their August wedding!

Superbowl. Vine-style.

Superbowl Sunday is basically my favorite holiday of the year. I know, I know. Its not technically a holiday, but in my house I treat it as one. Great food, beer and football. Duh. It should totally be a holiday. We had a super low-key day, relaxing and watching the game all by ourselves. We made stuffed meatballs and spaghetti. Amazing. Mozzarella inside meatballs? I'm not sure how I came up with the idea, but I'm glad I did! 

As for the actual game? I thought it was pretty good, as far as Superbowls go. Beyonce totally killed it too. I cried a little when Kelly and Michelle came out. Brought me back to my middle school days. God I loved Destiny's Child. But the commercials? Terrible! Its like the ad agencies forgot about the Superbowl this year and had to come up with crap at the last minute. I want another one of these ads

Anyhoo...are y'all vine-ing yet? I am and I love it! Its my new obsession. Here's some videos I made Sunday. Totally cheesy, but oh so fun. I promise my video/editing skills will get better.
