Allow me to introduce Harper from Arapahoe High School! This vivacious and fun-loving senior is president of student council and actively involved in AHS’s theater program, both as a member of their elite acting ensemble and having held leading roles in past performances. For her senior portraits, we wanted to highlight Harper’s theatrical side and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts was the perfect backdrop.
Such a doll – Keep an eye out for this rising star!
Such a beautiful session with Taylor of Arapahoe High School this week! We enjoyed a lovely late afternoon along the South Platte River, complete with a little sun, some afternoon clouds, a bit of thunder, and even a surprise snake – EEEK!! That last one certainly spooked the daylights out of mom & me (he was BIG!), but Taylor remained cool as a cucumber despite our reptilian encounter.
Grace under pressure for sure!
It was great to photograph the Smith family this week! We were able to schedule their session immediately after Peyton’s senior portraits, which was super convenient for this busy family’s schedule. Not only did we capture some great images of this fun crew, but word has it Dad treated everyone to breakfast at the Waffle House afterwards. Sounds like a perfect morning to me!!
Allow me to introduce Peyton Smith of Arapahoe High School! In addition to being V.P. of Student Council, Peyton is an accomplished cellist and avid reader. It was so fun to showcase these diverse interests during her senior session this week! Once again I’d like to tip my hat to Marilin Stull of Pretty Neat for her help in styling Peyton’s spunky personality!
Another great senior session this past week – this time with Isabelle Jones of Arapahoe High School! I just love Isabelle’s carefree style & easy going personality. The open meadows and flower fields at Hudson Gardens were the perfect backdrop for this natural beauty.
It was a great kick off to the senior portrait season this week with this beauty from Heritage High School! This girl is such a sweetie & managed to look fresh and lovely throughout the session despite the sizzling hot temps we were dealing with. Maybe it’s her experience as a varsity cheerleader that gives her such grace under pressure!
Isn’t she lovely?
It was such an honor to be the photographer for Emmett’s Bar Mitzvah a few weeks ago. I have known Emmett since the day he was born, and have watched with sheer admiration as he’s grown into the wonderful person he is today. His Bar Mitzvah celebration, held in a three story loft in downtown Denver, was as unique as Emmett himself and was filled with love, family, & even a little magic. Mazel Tov Emmett!
Who says outdoor portraits are only for warm weather?
‘Tis the season for family holiday sessions!
One question I’m often asked is how to dress for a family portrait. I always have the same response: Remember you are not a team, you’re a family. This is my simple way of saying please, please, please do not arrive all wearing the same thing! Nothing screams ‘awkward family photo’ more than everyone wearing the exact same shirt and matching pants. You know what I’m talking about: black long sleeve shirt/blue jeans, white button down shirt/khaki pants, or any variety of matching stripe/check/Hawaiian print, etc. Admit it, we all see those combinations showing up on the holiday cards we receive each year… am I right?
