Meet Jared. Tall and athletic, Jared has a long-and-lean look that cameras love. Add to that his fair skin, blue eyes and thick mane of wavy, reddish-brown hair and you have the perfect formula for some classic Irish good looks. Maybe that’s why I felt compelled to set my Ed Sheeran playlist to repeat while I was editing his photos. Somehow it just seemed appropriate… Continue reading →
Meet Maddie. Easy-going & personable, Maddie wins the award this year for the quickest turn around between the date she first contacted me and the date we did her senior session: one week! That is a rarity this time of year, but she was anxious to squeeze her session in before school started and I just happened to have a time slot open that fit into her schedule. It’s awesome when things work out that way!
Because Maddie wanted a natural setting and she was scheduled for late afternoon, I anticipated a full-sun scenario where we’d be working primarily in the shade or capturing backlit images. However Mother Nature had her own thoughts, Continue reading →
Meet Liz. She loves to ride horses, teach others to ride horses, and swing dance. This young lady is a cowgirl through and through. Therefore, it should have been no surprise when Liz asked if we could include not one, not two, but THREE horses into her senior portraits. And yet somehow I was a little surprised. Being the ‘city slicker’ photographer I am, I can honestly say I’ve never photographed a horse in any of my portrait sessions. In fact I’ve hardly ever been around horses, except for a few touristy chuckwagon dinner excursions, which (let’s be honest here) hardly qualify as horseback riding at all. But I love a creative challenge, and so I happily took on this assignment. Continue reading →
Meet Sophia. Like a burst of sunshine this young beauty lights up a room with her sweet personality and beautiful smile. Equal parts rough-and-tumble athlete & fashionable girly-girl, Sophia wanted to play up her feminine side for her senior portraits. Continue reading →
So what do you do when you find out just days before your senior portrait session that the location you had so carefully chosen is CLOSED?! I don’t mean closed as in ‘never going to open again’, but closed as in ‘so very inconveniently (i.e. annoyingly) closed on the day you just happen to have chosen for your session’.
Bummer. BIG bummer. Especially when you are looking for a location that combines natural open fields, rustic barns, tennis courts, and a place to play the ukulele. That’s right, the ukulele.
Allow me to introduce Jordan. I had the pleasure of photographing this young beauty on a warm summer evening last week. Quiet, sweet, and even a little ‘spicy’, Jordan wanted to showcase her artsy, bohemian style in her senior portraits. As such, we knew a natural setting was the way to go.
There is no shortage of beautiful outdoor scenery in the Denver Metro area, Continue reading →
When Liza first contacted me, she mentioned she’d spent a lot of time looking at different photographer’s online galleries because she really wanted to find the right fit for her senior portraits. She happened upon my website and knew right away that I was the photographer for her. *sigh* I love a girl who knows what she wants…especially when she has such good taste ;-)! Continue reading →
As a corporate wellness director with the American Heart Association, and yoga instructor with special training in trauma-sensitive & restorative yoga, Lindsey works to find innovative solutions to help individuals, communities, and organizations cultivate systems that lead to better health and well-being. As she so eloquently states, “I want people to feel at home and alive in their bodies, lives, and workplaces.”
When Lindsey asked me to be the photographer for her online and professional portraits, I knew she needed a fresh approach that would reflect the same sense of balance she seeks to foster in her clients. Continue reading →
