sister, sister | child head shots + portrait photography

I love taking photos at the Denver Photo Collective studios for an indoor photo shoot option. This session was a delight with one of my son’s school classmates and her sister for some creative head shots and portraits. These sweet girls are hoping to try some commercial modeling and I think they’d be great! They did such a good job listening to instructions, posing, having fun and being efficient about outfit changes so our session would move along and fit into our time slot at the studio. I’m over the moon about the newly painted charcoal black small room at this studio, where I captured some slightly moodier portraits of the girls, and looking forward to working more against that backdrop with natural daylight and maybe some studio lighting in the future! And, you can’t beat a velvet sofa photo prop, am I right?! Adore this new peachy pink couch at the Lakewood studio for photographers to make use of.

What is a FRESH 48 Session? | Baby Z | 24 Hours New | Preview Photos

What is a Fresh 48 photo session?
Take a peek at these precious photos from today’s morning session with brand new Baby Z. This darling angel was just a tad over 24 hours old when I photographed her. Swoon! I’m broadening my photo session options to include Fresh 48 photography. A Fresh 48 shoot is a more documentary or lifestyle type session that is taken at the hospital, birthing center or home within approximately the first 24-48 hours of welcoming your newborn into the world. This session includes me capturing those little details of baby, after the birthing process, in your recovery room, using natural or available light, minimal posing, with shots of tiny toes & fingers, yawns, swaddles, diaper changes, first feedings, parents just absorbing everything new, baby in a special outfit, sibling greetings, & whatever else we see in those early moments! I hope to document your little one in a special way to record those first hours together and create some lasting memories that will last forever.
Your baby will change so fast and as a new parent you’ll soon realize that you simply cannot have enough photos of your perfect gift! I would be delighted to be invited into your newborn experience just for a brief time to capture you & baby in a fresh natural way!

Pink Burst | Ready to Pop | Mama-to-be Maternity Shoot 💕

Super fun time shooting this darling, gorgeous, strong, Mama-to-be for her maternity session at the Denver Photo Collective’s newest studio space in Downtown Denver. The new studio is located in the vibrant Santa Fe Art District area and offers the metro area and surrounding a great space for photography, events and creative collabs. For their Grand Opening, they set up a lovely styled set in various pink shades with their new dusty rose colored velvet sofa. I knew this would be a great match for photographing mama Hanna, who is due any day with her first baby girl, and blessed the opportunity and timing made it all happen. The DPC has their original studio located right near my hood in the Lakewood area, just west of Denver. I can book time at either studio and can’t wait to capture all you lovelies in studio and beyond. Here’s a peek at some of my favorite shots from Hanna’s session. Can you believe this mama can do all her yoga posing just a couple weeks before her due date? Amazing strength and flexibility! And, so inspiring! Sending vitality & healthy vibes to this warrior woman for a strong labor & birth. Namaste.
