Getting graphic this Halloween…
Meet Olive. I knew from the moment I met her this girl was going to be a joy to photograph. A theater diva from Ralston Valley High School with a head full of wild curls and a bubbly, spunky personality to match, the Arts District on Santa Fe was the perfect place to showcase this girl’s dramatic side. The colorful street art & gritty urban vibe was the perfect foil for Olive’s animated personality & spirited style, proving that truly all the world’s a stage! Continue reading
Meet Ben. Ben is a senior at the Denver School of Science & Technology who has his sights set on studying business at Wesleyan University in Connecticut next year. I first met Ben a year ago when I photographed his family for a holiday session last November. I love seeing my clients year-to-year and watching how much changes. I’ve watched babies grow into children, children into adolescents, and adolescents into young adults. It never ceases to amaze me how much can change in so little time.

Meet Ryan. My first introduction to Ryan was through an email his mother sent me stating that Ryan was a ‘reluctant young man’ when it came to senior portraits. I laughed at loud at that description because it honestly encapsulates a good 75% of all high school senior guys. While girls are typically over the moon at the chance to have their portraits taken professionally, most guys simply don’t care all that much. No worries, I’ve worked with many young men such as Ryan in the past and I love watching how their initial hesitancy turns into relaxation (and even pleasure!) at having their photograph taken. I think that’s because I keep my sessions so laid back and pressure free. Any worries about having to ‘perform’ or be ‘stiff and cheesy’ simply melt away.
Allow me to introduce Eve. Eve is a senior at South High School and a member of the school’s cross country team. I was thrilled when Eve told me she wanted an urban session for her senior portraits – those are my favorite! The colors, textures and unique backdrops of a city environment are so fun to play with. Despite having a track meet the morning of her photo shoot, Eve had no problem trading her running shoes for her rockin’ wardrobe and hitting the streets of downtown Denver for a killer senior session.
Such a fashionista!
I took a break from portrait photography this weekend to go camping in Sunrise, WY to witness the solar eclipse.
Words cannot describe how amazing it is to experience a solar eclipse in its totality. Day gives way to night as the moon’s shadow rushes towards you like a massive dust storm at nearly 2,000 miles an hour. Soon after, the horizon lights up in shades of pink, orange, and purple – a virtual 360 degree sunset. Gazing upward you witness the sun’s corona emitting the purest, most electric white light you’ve ever seen, glowing in a surreal dance around the outline of the moon. All at once you feel infinitely small, and at the same time connected with everything else in the universe. Like a tiny little piece of a very large puzzle. Continue reading
We spent a marvelous morning on the streets of Denver for the annual Chalk Art Festival. This event features more than 200 professional and amateur artists who spend hours on their hands and knees over the course of two days, transforming Larimer Square into a bright and colorful street museum, adorned in vivid pastel chalks.
A feast for the eyes! Continue reading
