Concert Photography | Cherry Creek Arts Festival Photographer

“Take me to another place, take me to another land
Make me forget all that hurts me, let me understand your plan” -Arrested Development

Honored to have been a part of the volunteer photography committee at this year’s Cherry Creek Arts Festival’s Concert for Arts Education, featuring the Grammy Award winning, hip-hop, socially conscious, band Arrested Development. I had an awesome time capturing the band members and listening to their amazing live performance while also benefiting the students in our Denver community with future Cherry Arts art education exhibits, demonstrations, classes and interactive art! Fantastic, giant, inflatable sculptures stage backdrop art was created by artist Nicole Banowetz. Grateful for opportunities to shoot concert photography and look forward to doing more!

Claude Monet — 'I must have flowers, always, and always.'
I stumbled upon this beautiful bunch of pink flowers on the corner near the Walgreens drug store I go to. I drove past them a few times, on multiple days, and then finally decided I simply had to have some photos of them. Flowers are just a special, symbolic, lovely thing to photograph.
Be it happy or sad moments, flowers seem to brighten the energy that surrounds us.

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!
