Last week I got to head up I-70 to meet with a Georgia family who are friends with another family that I had the pleasure of photographing when they were out visiting the Colorado mountain scenery last fall over Thanksgiving break. Their daughters are friendly and this time it was Kaitie's turn to be photographed. She's going to be a senior this year and it's time for her senior photos. She decided it would be fun to get them done out here in the gorgeous mountain scenery of Colorado. Her grandma has a house out here in the mountains so their whole family has been coming to Colorado for years and it's like a 2nd home to them. We decided to use the Sapphire Point area and a new little spot I found near there as well as heading down closer to Lake Dillon toward the end. Kaitie is a cheerleader and she has the most wonderful and warm smile. She also has gorgeous silky long hair which looked particularly awesome when we did a photo by the lake at the end and a breeze picked up just enough to show off those locks of hers! I also loved her outfit changes and thought all three were perfect on her. She wore a cute flirty styled coral pink colored dress which was her favorite and then added in a cozy sweater outfit which looked great with the mountain backdrop and also a lovely casual outfit at the end with a nice green top and layered lariat necklace that looked fantastic on her! I love the way senior photo sessions allow the senior to show off their style in so many ways.
You are a very sweet young lady and it was so much fun to hang out photographing you! I hope you have a super fun senior year and good luck to you with your college plans after that!
I think this one is my favorite because of her laugh:) Plus, that view of Ten Mile Peak range in Breckenridge will never get old for me!
Iam so pleased to share this seriously awesome young lady on the blog today. Mary is the daughter of one of my good friends and is super sweet. It can be so uncomfortable being in front of the camera but she was game to try all of my silly prompts; "Yes, do a dance right here on the sidewalk in front of everyone!" Haha, I promise it wasn't as painful as I make it sound. We had fun wandering around the Rino Art District in North Denver taking advantage of all of the awesome street art. We're all Stranger Things fans so we had to get a photo with the awesome mural created by the Arty Deeds crew. And of course, I always want to stop by Gemma Danielle's gorgeous geometric mural at Crema Coffee at Mary's senior photo session was no exception. I was having so much fun with my buddy and her great kiddo that I could have kept photographing but as with all sessions, the sun was setting and it was time to call it a night. Check out some of my favorites below!
Poor Bethany and I have had to reschedule her senior photos so many times due to the unpredictable spring weather that Colorado is known for and that we've definitely been experiencing as of late. Even as I write this I hear we may get another snowstorm on Friday! Originally we wanted to get the lilac blossoms at City Park but when the heavy spring snowstorm took those out I suggested we change location. Daniels Park is located just south of Highlands Ranch and west of Castle Pines. I've only photographed at the park one time before and it was on a frigid winter day in December. I mostly remember the low temperature but I also remember it having one hell of a view so I thought maybe it was time to try again. I am so glad that we did because I could not get enough of the views which they say reach from Pikes Peak all the way to Longs Peak! It was a little on the windy side but I suspect that's just how it always is at this location. Bethany managed to work with it though and we used it to our advantage for that awesome windswept hair look! There were a bunch of other people out enjoying the views that evening and I think after you see the pictures below you'll understand why. (Not related, but I could totally see this being a pretty awesome picnic date location!) I couldn't ask for better scenery as the sun was setting. Bethany was a total natural in front of the camera and part of me wonders if it's because she has some experience working behind the lens too. She photographed a couple of her classmates' senior yearbook photos earlier this year and enjoys photographing. She is a very driven gal with a lot of independence. She's planning to join the navy after high school and I wish her all the best in her endeavors after high school!
It's graduation season here in Colorado and across the country with graduates of all education levels celebrating their years of hard work and receiving their diplomas. It's also springtime and when the blossoms are blooming I cannot get enough of photographing people and families outside. McKenzie and her family wanted to celebrate her success in graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder with some graduation pictures with the whole family. I loved that they wore their CU gear for these while McKenzie rocked her cap and gown. We also headed for the iconic flatirons mountain backdrop at Chautauqua Park which I think is the perfect place to be photographed when you are celebrating your soon to be CU Buff alumni status. McKenzie's whole family stood proud with her for these updated family photos at this important milestone in her life. And I like to think they had a little bit of fun too playing some games, exploring the hills behind the dining hall and smelling all of the lovely spring flowers along the way. Around sunset we finished up with the majestic flatirons in the backdrop. Soon McKenzie will be leaving the beauty of Boulder Colorado and moving on to new adventures as she attends law school in Wisconsin. I wish her all the best of luck in her life goals!
