Downtown Denver Senior Photos at Union Station
I have the coolest Downtown Denver senior photos to share on the journal today. The really fun thing about this session is that it is for an old derby buddy of mine whose oldest daughter is going to graduate this spring. I did her mom’s headshots quite a few years ago now and she’s been following along on my photography journey since then just waiting for the day when it would be time for senior photos for her firstborn. That day finally came and I am so in love with what we came up with!
Fashionable Senior Photos in Denver
A huge reason why these turned out so awesome is because her daughter, Rowan, is incredibly stylish. She’s really good at thrifting which is a skill that I wish I had, but I admit that I don’t think I have the patience for it. Still, I always see photos of their thrifting adventures online and am always impressed at their finds. Rowan brought 3 super cool outfits for her session. For these Downtown Denver senior photos, I knew we’d be starting off over by the Oxford Hotel to get some cool pictures with Union Station in the backdrop. I told her to wear her favorite outfit first so we could get it with Union Station and other street scenes and I LOVE that first outfit. Maybe it’s the black and white stripes on her long sleeved sweater, but her whole first look seems so Parisian to me. And I may be showing my age a little, but I think she’s channeling fashion icon Carrie Bradshaw a little with that awesome bright yellow full skirt! She definitely had some nice compliments from strangers as we took her photos. This is probably one of my most fashionable senior photo sessions ever. And what would you know, in the alleyway near Union Station there is some beautiful street art with bumblebees that went perfectly with her attire.
Larimer Square Senior Photography
We made sure to use some other scenery along the way, but our end goal was to finish up the session over at Larimer Square so that we could use the gorgeous string lights as part of the backdrops. Over by the Cherry Creek bike path next to Larimer Square is one of my favorite wall murals in all of Denver which is the pretty blue City of the Sun piece commissioned by the city of Denver and created by Gemma Danielle. We definitely walked out of our way to go get a couple portraits with that piece before ending the evening at Larimer Square. I am so happy that she chose Larimer Square for one of her downtown Denver senior photography locations because it’s one of my absolute favorite spots in the whole city. The way the lights look with the historic buildings that thankfully Denver has chosen to protect is so beautiful to me. And I think it’s particularly lovely right after the sun sets and the whole sky turns that beautiful deep dark blue at dusk. The golden lights of Larimer Square look magical then.
