Sweet 16 Sunset Preview Photos | Gracie

I am sixteen going on seventeen
I know that I'm naive
Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet
And willingly I believe -The Sound of Music

Adored taking photos of this sweet almost sixteen year old for a creative birthday shoot! She’s just as porcelain doll like in person as she looks in these images, with the precious personality to match. She wanted a sunset/golden hour style shoot in a field somewhere in the Denver area and I’m pleased that I was able to suggest this spot, Belmar Park & Lakewood Heritage Center, I’ve become keen on shooting clients at, located right near my home. It’s a large park area, but it also has some lovely vintage buildings, a barn, old farm equipment and other structures right next to it as well as some nice field and trees options, a lake and more! You just have to take some time, walk around, be creative and have some patience. Seems like I discover new spots to play with for backdrop every time I shoot here. It really is a great location to shoot a variety of styles that will encompass a rustic vibe to nature, moody to light & airy and even a casual urban backdrop can be embodied here with the right eye. And I appreciate that it’s just a short drive west of central Denver, which makes it a reasonable location for the metro area. I hope this darling high school girl will love her images as much as I do. Wishing you a happy 16th year full of blessings and adventure dear Gracie!
