Kid Model Headshots | Denver Model & Actor Photographer

In the model industry, having some great photos is an important part of making an impession. Kid models will need some headshots for their portfolio page and comp card once they’ve been accepted to be represented by an agency. Becoming a model takes more work than a lot of people realize. It’s not just being a pretty face. In my opinion, every child is beautiful, yes, your child is the cutest kid on earth, but child modeling in front of a camera requires some natural or learned talent, skill, an outgoing, flexible personality and can take awhile to practice auditioning, landing gigs and performing. Agencies are looking for a variety of different looks.
Is your child photogenic, charismatic, uniquely talented, comfortable taking direction from adult strangers, able to patiently hang out on potentially long jobs, confident and ready to handle rejection?
Are you thinking about having your child try their hand at modeling? I suggest you take just a few good snapshots of your child in a cute, neutral color outfit, no makeup, and take one close-up and a full body shot to submit to agencies. Do your research and locate a few of the most reputable talent agencies in your area. Some agencies have open call auditions to locate new talent and others will allow you to just simply email/send your photos to them for review. A few reputable and legit modeling/acting/talent agencies that I know of in the Denver, Colorado area include Donna Baldwin Agency, Wilhelmina, Big Fish Talent and Maximum Talent Agency. Check these companies out to see if they are accepting new kid talent and find out the details of their requirements to submit your child. Once your child has been asked to do a contract with a good agency, then I encourage you to find a photographer that can snap some professional photos of your child that will be used on the agency’s website and for sharing with their potential clients. Getting 2-3 different looks/outfits is suggested for headshots.
This doll here, Emmie, just landed her first modeling contract, so her mom wanted to get some natural, bright headshots of her to showcase that cutie face! Good luck Emmie! I hope you have a lot of fun on your modeling auditions!

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!

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!

Lisa | Creative Portraits | Non-Traditional Headshots

Beauty. Grace. Wisdom. Laughter. Captured.
A lot of fun for this Downtown Denver creative portraits shoot with an old friend. She’s a strong yogi, a gentle soul, wise and witty, total #womangoals with this one here! I just love these free spirited, slightly outside the box and non-traditional headshot type shoots where my client patiently allows me the freedom to let my artistic style come through and rolls with it. I adored her willingness to be flexible and playful, without constraint. Such great, authentic energy photographing Lisa and the camera felt that!
I’d love to work with you too! We can capture some lifestyle, more traditional or something beyond basic style headshots and portraits to document you at any stage of your life!
