Balance in the Ice Caves || Rifle, Colorado || Flow Arts Yoga Photographer

So, I've been going through tons and tons of photos lately, sorting through and finding what I want to put on my website since I've been doing pretty much a complete overhaul. I've been trying to put up-to-date images on here as well as update my bio, contact section, and adding new sections to my galleries.
Because of this I'm finding a lot of images I want to share on the blog! Since I really haven't updated my blog in years until the other day, I have a lot.... and I mean A LOT of photos to share on here. It's hard to decide where to start. I've been sharing just some short little sessions lately, but I want to share some big wedding sessions and portrait sessions here soon.

To be honest, if you're reading this, I post waaaaaaayyyy more on social media than I will on here, but I know there are some people who have stopped by and want to see my work. And here you go! If you'd like to follow my social media I have links to my instagram and Facebook pinned to my website as well as listed on my contact section :)

Now to the photos! For anyone who doesn't know, I live in the infinitely beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I mean, I seriously cannot believe how many natural wonders are within just an hour of my home. I am consistently in awe at the beauty that surrounds me daily, and of all the treasures that are tucked back in these magical landscapes. During all times of the year, the landscape is shifting, building itself up, breaking down into new seasons, it can be hard to keep up with the flow of it all but I love every moment of it.
Near my house are these caves that in the winter, because of water dripping down, slowly build up into these icy wonderland walls of magnificence. Theres a cold stillness when you walk inside of them, the air around you glows a magical blue as the sunlight filters in through the icy pillars, giant icicles hang above your head that hold the power of taking life away if they decide to fall at any moment, your mind is full of wonder as you try to balance on slick, slippery ice floors.... It's incredible to say the least, I don't know how else to describe it, so I'll do what I do and show you in my photos that I took as a small session I did with my friend Dan, who shows me daily how to be present and mindful in every moment... even when you are balancing on a frigid rock within giant icy slopes.

 

 

 

 

 


Fire Queen || Colorado Flow Arts Fire Spinning Performer Photographer

Hey y'all, I'm really REALLY attempting to be better at posting. I always say that when I go through these phases of actually posting somewhat consistently... but as I've been working and finishing up school and trying to build my portfolio/social media/website, I've really realized how incredibly important it is to update my blog so that I have new media coming into my website somewhat frequently. I'm always taking photos and theres no reason I shouldn't be updating this more often. So here's to trying to keep up with my blog!! Hope y'all enjoy.

Here's something that as a reader who doesn't know me wouldn't know about me - I spin fire and so do some of my friends! There are lots of different types of flow props that can also be made to spin fire. Mostly I use fire hoops but I do dabble in other props as well - maybe I'll post some photos of myself sometime, but for now I want to share some of these photos of my best friend, soul sister, bfffffffffffffffff, Hassie! I looooooooove taking photos of people dancing, flowing, moving, etc.. there's something so incredibly magical about what you can capture when someone has entered that flow state. Passion just overflows out of their being, it's indescribable to me. You don't have to pose someone or try to make someone feel comfortable when they already are, because they are doing what they love and finding confidence in that.

I could go on and on about flow arts and how incredible the community is, how much I love being a part of it and how much I enjoy shooting photos of people moving so beautifully.. but I'll spare you for now ;)

So, here are some images of Hassie spinning fire fans on our camping trip a few weeks ago at dusk, creating this ethereal back light in contrast to the fire.


Best Friend Appreciation · Seaside, Florida · Portrait Photographer

You know that feeling when your best friend is the cutest thing ever!? And you can't stop taking photos of her drinking her smoothie because she looks so darn precicous!? Yeaaahhhh.... THAT feeling ;) ;)

In all seriousness my friend Katie is extremely cute AND shoutout to my favorite lil raw vegan airstream (and my old job), Raw and Juicy, as the background here.

 


Keegan + Will · 30a, Grayton Beach, Florida · Wedding Photographer

Hi there! Once again I have put off posting on the blog for a long time. This wedding is from the end of 2014, and was just absolutely beautiful.

Better to share photos late than never at all, right? Haha!

 


Megan { College Senior Portraits } || Eden Gardens State Park, Seagrove Beach, Florida || Portrait Photographer

Better late than never, right?

I never uploaded these (and so many others…sigh..) to my blog, but I will be uploading photos as I go through them!
These are from spring of 2014, taken at Eden State Gardens.

Enjoy these, Megan is so beautiful!


Ethan Delaney {Spring 2014 Portraits} || Grayton Beach, Florida · 30A Portrait Photographer

Haven't posted in a while! I've been a busy busy bee!

I would love to share these beautiful photos of my friend with you all, I really enjoy working one on one with my clients/models. It's so fun when people loosen up in front of the camera and find the natural model inside.

I took these photos of Ethan a little while back, he's such a fun person, and a great model!

We took most of these photos at Grayton Beach State Park, and if you haven't been there, I highly suggest you make the trip. It's a beautiful State Park in our area, you can very easily spend the day at the beach, walking the trails, fishing, etc. You can even camp there!

So, here are the photos of my gorgeous friend Ethan

He's just so fun and silly, and of course, handsome! I love him as a friend, and I love working with him as a model.

Until next time,

Mallory !


Happy Wednesday! {October 30, 2013}

Here's a Tolkien quote to fuel your Fall wanderlust ~


Katie Kramer Portraits {October 2013} | | Santa Rosa Beach Portrait Photographer

If you follow me on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MalloryWilliamsPhotography) or if you've scrolled through my blog before you may have seen some photos of Katie, she's one of my best friends and always a great model in front of the camera!

For this set of portraits we went to the always beautiful Watercolor, climbed trees, hula hooped, did a few outfit changes, and had a great time!

About the hula hoop: the hula hoop pictured is actually an adult-sized hula hoop custom made by ME! I have a hobby on the side, I make custom hula hoops for people of all ages and I sell them out of the house and in the store Coast in Seagrove! So if you happen to be interested in seeing what this is all about you can check out the Facebook page I have: www.facebook.com/StateOfSunshineHoops

Now onto the photos of the stunning Katie Kramer!


Alison Senior Portraits {October 2013} | | Santa Rosa Beach Senior Portrait Photographer

The other day I took senior portraits for Alison, she's so sweet and beautiful as you can clearly see in the photos!

We chose to do her portraits in Watercolor (I love her orange shirt against the green background) and we did her formal photos on the beach, and the water was crystal clear and serene! There were no waves and it looked like glass, it was a wonderful backdrop.


Solomon Family Portraits {August 2013} | Santa Rosa Beach Photographer
