Pretty Fall Color Senior Girl Portraits on Squaw Pass Road
This gorgeous Colorado mountain senior portraits session I’m featuring today is special for me because this young lady’s mama is one of my favorite people I have met while doing derby. Her mom, Sissy, and I go back quite awhile now since we both originally skated for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls way back when it first started. I’m pretty sure she was there back when we were skating at the old Roll O Rama on Welby Road in North Denver before it was turned into a porn warehouse. But back to the lovely Sissy Rinkshaw, aka, “Jill,” she was one of the sweetest people to comfort me when I first learned about my mom’s tongue cancer and I’ll always remember that.
Jill has been an awesome single mom raising her daughter, Corryn. I cannot believe Corryn is already a senior! All of my friend’s little ones that I watched hanging out on the sidelines while their moms skated at practices throughout the years are growing up and turning into young adults. It’s such a wonderful thing to witness despite it making me feel a teensy bit old. Corryn is a really impressive young woman and Jill has so much to be proud of in her. She’s been chosen as a finalist through QuestBridge and is on track to hopefully win a full ride scholarship to college. I am keeping my fingers crossed for her that she gets chosen.

If you’ve been following along with my journal this year, you will recognize this gorgeous mountain meadow location we went to for Corryn’s portraits. It’s the always stunning Beaver Brook Watershed trailhead and the prime color was finally there in time for Corryn’s session. I love all of the serious and moody looks she pulls off so well. I think they went nicely with the moody feel of the scenery this time. But of course, I always love the fun and candid laughing moments I caught in between too. Corryn is a little bit camera shy which I can definitely relate to. Despite this being my profession, I much prefer being behind the camera so I know how she felt having to pose for pictures. Still, she was a good sport about participating in all of my silly ideas and I hope that she likes what we came away with because of her cooperation.
All the best to you in your senior year, Corryn! I’m rooting for you!
