It seems like most of Colorado’s high school yearbook portrait submission deadlines are at the end of September going into October which consequently makes it a really, really busy time for photographers in our state. Not only is it the time that parents everywhere are busy booking those last minute high school portrait sessions, but Fall weddings and family photos are also very popular this time of year. My family realizes when September hits they are pretty much not going to see me much again until almost Thanksgiving! But we love what we do so we make the sacrifice!

Ella is one of those seniors who wanted a more urban experience for her photo-shoot. So we met downtown Denver and did my favorite back alley photo-shoot. The buildings in LoDo have great architectural features, fun graffiti and other urban landmarks like sculptures, cool bridges and more. The city photo-shoot is not for everyone, but for those that this appeal to we have a great time exploring and finding just the right spots for memorable photos! A beautiful girl also equals gorgeous photos! I’m so happy I was able to document your final year in high school.

Senior portrait season is pretty much over for the year… yeah, we may get one or two that still have a later yearbook deadline date or someone who never got their photo taken, but would like to have something before their commencement ceremony, but otherwise it’s over. I thought I would post a few of this Brighton High School’s senior session. We did an early morning session just a week before they were due, he was a great subject and I had an awesome time photographing him! Hope these will be some great memories for the years to come! Enjoy!

I’m a little behind again posting other types of portrait sessions that we’ve been busy doing… Senior portrait season is winding to a close now so I’ll be sharing a little bit of my work with all of you! This handsome young man is Connar! I met his mother over 12 years ago when she was working an Arbonne business and was doing bridal shows with me. She did the make-up for all the bridesmaids in my wedding and we’ve stayed in contact through Facebook all these years. She’s an amazingly creative person who created a business painting kitchen cabinets and also restoring or re-creating furniture. Anyways, her son is doing his senior year at Littleton High School and needed to do his senior photos. We had a great time doing these right before the leaves started turning and the weather was still warm. Check them out!

It’s that time of year again! My phone and emails are non-stop right now with those high school seniors for the Class of 2020 who still need to get their senior portraits done before the yearbook due dates. Most of those dates are early or late Fall so please check with your child’s yearbook staff to find out when those dates are because I assure you a few classmates will wait until the absolute last week before even looking into getting them done and by that time it’s too late! For normal turnaround time we usually need a couple weeks to do the editing on them after they are taken and then you still need to go through them, pick one out for the yearbook and then we have to submit it for you! So if you are waiting for Fall colors, but your due date is for example October 20th I wouldn’t wait, I would schedule them as soon as possible as most of my weekend dates are already full! But no worries the sun doesn’t go down until almost 7:30pm we can still do them during the week after school. The best light is around 6pm anyways!

Isaac came to me as a referral from my husband’s other job. His mom, Christina and I talked over location ideas and what he was looking to have in the background of his photos. He requested mountains! So I had the perfect spot to recommend for this outdoorsy guy! Check these photos out, I love how the blue shirt brings out the blue colors in his eyes! Have a great senior year, Isaac!

Fall is a wonderful time to do your senior photos. The problem with it being a wonderful time to do photos is that a lot of seniors wait to do them until this time frame and portrait session slots fill up with most of the photographers that do them! In Colorado the senior yearbook photo submissions are also usually due early Fall with some even being due as early as September! I haven’t really be advertising my senior sessions in the past few years because the return on investment hasn’t been very high for me so consequently I do an average of 5-10 a year, but this also allows me to really personalize the service I give to my clients… helping them choose a location or locations that fits the personality of the soon to be graduate is important as well as incorporating interests of young adult in their photos to capture this special moment in their life!

Evan’s mom, Michelle purchased raffle tickets to receive a free session from me at one of the many charities that I choose yearly to donate our services too. She told me that the organization had a system of where you could put your tickets under the service you most wanted and since she really wanted a senior portrait session with me she put all of her tickets in the bucket under what I donated! And it paid off. Evan wanted to go one of his favorite locations to hike at and so we set-up a plan to go there and one other park near by that I knew had more trees at. I had a blast doing this shoot and we got some amazing photos! Enjoy!

 

Tis’ the season for High School Senior Portraits…. Now that all of the kids are back in school and they realize that their yearbook photo is due int eh next couple months I start to get a barrage of calls from panicking parents! And my days start to fill in with last minute bookings to have their senior captured for posterity! I love doing these photos because it’s so much fun getting to work with teens about to take the next big leap into the unknown. You get to hear about their plans for the future,¬† discuss the activities and interests that they are into right now and photograph them at a time in their life when they are young, excited and ready to take on the world! Amanda was no exception and we had a blast doing her photos! I do still have some weekday dates available before time runs out. So give me a call if you are searching for a photographer for this momentous occasion!

 

Nothing is better than getting to photograph a friend’s son for his portrait session! I’ve known Jaden since he was a little guy and one of the ring bearers at his dad and step-mom’s wedding, well many years ago at this point! The Padia family has been one of the main cheerleaders for my business over the years and have helped my business grow in so many ways. And while life and raising kids keeps both our family and theirs very busy and a little out of touch, I still count them as good friends that I would absolutely do anything for! With that being said this was an easy task for me. Jaden just doesn’t take a bad photo! His smile is genuine and it was just unnatural to have him do anything but smile! I can’t believe this is his last year of high school! Enjoy his infectious smile and wish him and the Pomona Panthers Football team good luck at State!
