Colorado High School Senior Photography | Commons Park Downtown Denver

I
knew that one day my job might start to make me feel a little old when past clients come back and their kids are grown. That's exactly what happened when Arian's mom contacted me about getting her senior pictures done this summer. I photographed her mother's wedding way back in 2007 and she was just a sweet young flower girl then. She has grown to be such a beautiful young lady that I hardly recognized her. How could that time have gone by so fast? Desiree still looks the same which is totally unfair! Arian wanted to go to the Riverfront part of downtown Denver where the South Platte River separates Lodo from the Highlands. I love this area too because you can get a pretty nice variety of environments all within walking distance. We started by REI and wandered through Platte Street to get a more urban look before crossing the Highland Bridge to take advantage of Commons Park and the natural open space environment there. We finished over at the hill at Confluence Park completing the circle back to REI. Arian is incredibly photogenic and I had such a hard time narrowing down what to share on the blog. Check out the final choices below!

Colorado High School Senior Photography | South Valley Park in Littleton

O
ne of my favorite teammates in roller derby is Triple Shot Misto who came in 3rd place on the Amazing Race a few years ago. Her daughter, Sayge is a senior this year and so we met up to get her senior photography taken care of. I love when high school seniors come get their yearbook photo photographed with me and they already have an idea for incorporating their interests and hobbies into the session. Sayge loves to ride horses and we went to the barn where her horse, Sydney lives to get a few photos with her. Sayge insisted that Sydney was not too photogenic but I disagree. I think they both look beautiful together! It was kind of crazy for me to photograph Sayge because when she smiles, she looks so much like her mom that I have to do a double take. After getting a few photos at the barn we moved on to the more picturesque South Valley Park. It was my first time photographing there and I can't believe this beautiful place has been around all of this time and I am just now seeing it. I really love the big beautiful red rocks and the sky at sunset there makes the whole place seem like a painting. I can't wait to go back!

Colorado High School Senior Photographer | Wild Mustang Sanctuary Farm

F
aleena, the Colorado high school senior gal featured in the journal today is actually someone I have photographed before. You might recognize her from her family's snowy winter session at Mount Falcon last November. I am so happy she got in touch with me again to photograph her high school senior photos because she's a natural in front of the camera and also because I loved her idea for where to go for her session. Faleena is a true country girl. She's been working at a huge farm outside of Kiowa in Deer Trail, Colorado for over a year and a half called the "Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary." The organization is an advocate for wild horses and its part of their mission to educate the public about them. Faleena loves her work there and wanted to use the pretty rustic landscape which is full of short scrubby pine trees, a windmill, yucca plants and of course wild horses roaming around on the land. The mustangs out on the range seemed to be camera shy that day but a pretty dark colored horse named Crystal came out to pose in the pictures with Faleena.  
 
Some of the mustangs are able to be broken in but they're wild and it's not easy. Faleena is one tough girl. At the end of her photo session she wanted to see if Crystal would be up for a quick ride but she had only been working on it for about a month. Faleena was a total badass and got up there but Crystal just wasn't having it that evening and she ended up falling pretty hard. I'm happy to report that she is ok now. I'm glad that we were able to photograph her at a place that she knows and loves. Check out the images below!

Colorado High School Senior Photography | Backyard Garden Portraits in Denver

L
ong before I was a photographer I was going to college and studying art. When I was in school I always did a lot of babysitting on the side to help pay the rent. This gorgeous gal featured in today's blog post was one of the kids that I used to babysit. I'm just going to skip right over how old that makes me feel, haha. Bibi wanted something a little different than the typical all outdoor senior photos. Her aunt owns a house in Denver that is impeccably decorated and she was kind enough to share her home for Bibi's senior photo shoot. We all really loved the pretty gold angel wings hanging on the wall so we made sure to get them in some of the photos. In fact, the blue of that whole little room was gorgeous and some of my favorite shots from the afternoon came from that space. We also got a few outdoor photos in the beautiful backyard garden to round out the session. Bibi is a natural beauty and it was very hard to narrow down the sneak peek since she looked so great in every shot! I think her humorous personality and confidence shines through in each of these. I also think her idea to do them at home really gave these portraits a natural lifestyle kind of feel to them.
