Today on the journal, I get to show off a really fun session I did this past week with Kinri, a high school senior here in the Denver area. She showed up to her session at City Park with her brother and I really enjoyed spending time with the both of them. Kinri has such a friendly personality and is easy to smile and and I think her personality really shines through in these pictures. I also always love to meet other readers. I was impressed that she’s reading Catch-22 right now and enjoying it because I remember attempting that one when I was her age and I just wasn’t able to get into it. She’s inspired me to try and give it another go now that I’m older and more patient with my reading. We started off using the large stone gates over at the 21st and York street exit area of City Park which was fun because I haven’t photographed on that side of the park in the long time. I had them follow me through the winding one way streets through the park to take advantage of getting the yellow boathouse in the backdrop as well as heading over to the east side of Ferril Lake for some pretty sunset views of the city skyline with the mountains stacked up behind Denver. There is also a really neat sculpture on the south side of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science that I really love to use as the sky turns a pretty deep blue at dusk. I think these photos of Kinri prove that all you need for beautiful winter season photos is to photograph at the right time of day. It doesn’t even matter that there is no snow to beautify the landscape. It sure helps when your subject has a winning smile too!
