I have anxiously been awaiting this day ever since uniform fittings, and, oh, what a beautiful day it turned out to be! I say "beautiful" not only because the sun was shining, but also because of how gorgeous all of my teammates looked!
Today was the team photo shoot for the second season of your Colorado Avalanche Ice Girls. We arrived one by one to the studio early and hit the ground running. Our new uniforms were in (can't wait for the fans to see them!!!) we had our skates ready to go, and our hair and make-up team were prepped for work. I'd like to take a moment to thank the lovely ladies from Star Salon for all of their help with hair and Cynthia, Denver Make-Up Guru, for her help with make-up. They are completely amazing at what they do.
The morning was filled with individual photos - soon to be on our new autograph cards, small group photos - for the website and such, and hundreds of fun photos/selfies taken by us girls! If you are interested in seeing some of the fun photos, please visit our new... INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT!!!! If you can't tell, we are beyond excited about Instagram. It will be a great way for the team to share some extra behind-the-scenes Ice Girl footage. I'm telling you, you won't want to miss it. @AvsIceGirls is coming soon.
Camera man Rob Hawthorne also deserves a huge THANK YOU! He was so helpful and took some amazing pictures. I'm very lucky to have such beautiful teammates, and we were all very lucky to have an expert there to capture the moments!
When the photos were all done, the team finished up with a quick meeting and called it a day. It feels good to have my uniforms back home with me. Hockey season is in the air, and my teammates and I cannot wait to be back at Pepsi Center with our fans in the stands and our players on the ice.
This season is going to be so amazing. We can't wait to see what the players have in store for the 2014-2015 season. The atmosphere at Pepsi Center will continue to rock, the off-ice events will continue to make a huge difference for the community, and we love being a part of all of it. Is it October yet?!
