You are our GREATEST Adventure | Lifestyle Newborn Photography

This new little guy is ready to explore! His parents have been waiting very patiently for this rainbow baby’s arrival. Welcome to the forest Talon! He was alert and calm throughout his 12 day old in-home photo shoot. He only slept for a short few minutes and definitely wanted to wiggle his arms & fingers out of the swaddle blanket and move his eyes around trying to figure out what was going on in his darling woodland decor nursery. His mom and dad are super creative and built the rustic reclaimed wood mountain peaks wall decor themselves. A totally amazing and cozy space! What a loved and cherished bear cub Talon is! A pleasure to snap some photos of him to document this fleeting first week-ish of his life.

Family Photos | Downtown Denver RiNo District | Love this City!

A family photo session helps capture memories that can be enjoyed forever! Whether it’s an annual tradition for your family or the first time in a long time that you’re setting up family photos, spending that time together, having some fun and getting photos done makes for an adventure that you can cherish. I love for you to feel as comfortable as possible during our session, so planning ahead just a little can be helpful. The Romeros set up a session for me to take some family pictures as well as snap a handful of senior photos for their son. I am loving their crisp and preppy navy blue, white and khaki color-coordinating outfits against the gritty textures the murals and vibe Downtown RiNo District offers. I absolutely love mom’s sassy heels, which can be a great way to elongate the legs and dress up a casual outfit just a bit! Think color coordinating, not necessrily matching, when planning your outfits of ‘What to Wear’ for a photo shoot. Don’t wait until the last moment to style yourselves, if at all possible. I met the Romero family in front of Denver Central Market and they came ready with style, a positive attitude and their older son was so flexible about getting those fun guy poses to make his high school senior pics look great! This setting is really just amazing for capturing fun family pics and senior photos, perfect for your modern teens who want to showcase themselves in a colorful way. There are blocks and blocks of endless possibilities for backdrops at this photo shoot location. And, how about that dog?! The Romeros brought their new, ridiculously cute Sheepadoodle puppy to the session and he was a delight! I’m happy to photograph your pet with your family, if we can make the details work. I know pets are a big part of the family for many of you. It’s not too early to book your Fall Family Photos. My calendar tends to fill up fast in the Fall/Winter months. Interested in a family session with Brooke Austin Photo? I would be thrilled to photograph you next! Thank you Romero family for the vibrant session! You’re a gorgeous family!

E L L E // Creative Portraits | Lakewood, Colorado Photographer

A great shoot location in the Lakewood, Colorado area is Lakewood Heritage Center which is right next door to Bel Mar Park. I love that this Denver central location is just slightly west of the downtown area, not far from my Littleton or Highlands Ranch potential clients and just down the road from people in the Golden, Arvada and Englewood areas too! This is an ideal spot if you’d like some nature backdrops incorporated into your photos, but there are also some really neat structures and vintage looking buildings that can give some rustic textures to your session as well. And, I’ve even found I can mimic a slightly quaint urban vibe against the right walls in this area as well. Depending on the time of year, you can stumble upon wild flowers, tall grass fields, evergreen or crab apple trees, a lake, bushes, natural grasslands and a variety of trees, dirt paths and paved sidewalks, large rocks, open space and historic structures, tractors and other farm inspired buildings too. There’s honestly a little of everything and some fun surprises at this somewhat hidden gem of a photography shoot spot! Here’s a peek at some recent teen’s creative portraits I captured at this fun location. Can you see some of the variety of possibilities for backdrops, in these shots of Elle, if you choose this location for your own photo session? It’s one of my favorite locations to photograph Denver locals.

It’s a big milestone you’ve reached in your youthhood and I would love to capture your current style and personality in as stress-free, authentic and modern way as possible.

Everyone deserves to have a great photo their senior year. The goal is to capture YOU and get images that will look great for wall prints for mom, dad & grandparents, and to share with friends & on social media too!
Dont’ wait to book! Yearbook deadlines are approaching fast.
I look forward to showcasing you!

What To Wear for Senior Pictures

Bring a couple looks/outfits or simply two favorite shirts. Wear what makes you feel best and will help you shine! Dress to Impress & Style Yourself Up!  Don't be afraid to wear a pop of color! Make a statement! Accessories, colorful sneakers, heels/wedges, a great dress or sports blazer/jacket, your letter jacket or a leather jacket, uniform or team jersey are all fun ideas to work with at your session. Have your hair & makeup done like you’re going to an event. I encourage solid colors or simple prints and jeans with a blouse/dressy shirt are fantastic! These are all just suggestions for capturing fabulous shots, but whatever you wear is wonderful to me!

You can send me inspiration pics you’ve found online that you’d like to imitate. Those pics can help with posing and confidence. How can I customize a shoot for you? Let’s make it happen!

What to Bring to Your Session

You can book a back-to-back session with a friend and we can get in a couple shots of you together! Bring your family or a pet, if that’s what makes you feel best. Bring a prop that showcases your current hobbies or likes. Athletic equipment, like a hockey stick or baseball glove, an instrument, dance or ballet shoes etc. are all awesome for photos! I love to get creative and try to make you laugh a little for those smiley pics, but also shoot some edgy or serious portraits too, if you’d like that.

Outdoor locations in the Denver Metro area

You can tell me if you’re thinking of a more urban textures type of backdrop or maybe you prefer a more natural setting. We can find an outdoor location that will highlight your vibe and style!
