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.

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!

Spread KINDNESS around like CONFETTI | Urban Creative Portrait Shoot | Denver RiNo District Photographer

Confetti & hot pink 💕👠 heels?! Um, yes, please! (I get giddy when clients bring a splash of color or a prop that helps highlight their style).
Thrilled to have photographed this lovely, inspirational and gorgeously photogenic gal. Simply a smashingly fun and colorful session. Many of you have already been following her (she has a huge social media following @lindsayteague ), but if you’re like me, you’re just getting a glimpse into this fantastic influencer and I’m sure you’ll be diving in to learn more. Meet Lindsay Teague Moreno, entrepreneur, speaker, podcaster, boss mama, mentor, author and more! She has this new book “Boss Up!: This Ain’t Your Mama’s Business Book” available for pre-order NOW, and I am super excited to snag it soon to read up on tips to stir more success with my own small woman owned business journey. What a joy to meet this energetic woman who has a passion for helping others grow.

I love and adore the ever exciting art culture, vibrant textures and evolving backdrop of Downtown Denver’s RiNo Art District, which made for the perfect, playful partner to Lindsay’s creativity and style during our shoot. I’ve shot a handful of clients in and around the murals and neighborhood of RiNo and Five Points Denver, and being a Denver native helps with knowing the area, but finding new spots to shoot around and locating them can be a bit of a mystery & game, so I was grateful for this detailed resource, Colbert, Carrie (2018, November 26) Your Guide to Denver’s Most Colorful Walls Retrieved from https://carriecolbert.com/ 17 April 2019, which made my hunt for finding specific photo backdrops in the area a breeze. Her post, that I found via Google surfing the web, will treat you with shining example images + street addresses to map out some fabulous murals in this artsy area.

It was an honor to meet and photograph you Lindsay. Thanks for a most jubliant photo session that will have me smiling and inspired for a long time!

Collaboration shoot with the stunning, Donna Baldwin Agency model Chloe B., this weekend! I had a few creative concepts in mind and Chloe and I chatted, and then she brought the flirty, fun & fabulous to our natural light shoot at the awesome Studio Corp Denver creative co-working space.
