Aurora Family Photographer | Modern + Urban Fall Photos | Preview

L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables — 'I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.'

October, one of my favorite months! The excitement of Halloween, apple pie, Fall festivals, Fall colors, sweater weather, boots and crisp cool evenings. It’s also one of my busiest photography times, for family portraits and beyond. This season I’m privileged to meet some new families and snap their photos in a variety of settings. Such a joy to meet this crew, with handsome, polite and photogenic tween & teen boys and a gorgeous set of parents to complete their sweet family.

We can capture the essence of Fall, the fashion, the crisp & cozy atmosphere in an urban setting like this one, with gritty, but quaint brick or street textures or we can find a natural trees and changing leaves outdoorsy setting. Whatever we do, wherever we shoot, the focus is capturing your memories. Here are some favorites I snapped at this session.

Santa Visit 2017

I just love the Santa Claus location we have visited off and on for years.  We've always enjoyed the Santa and Mrs. Claus that are at this event, sometimes a repeated Santa, sometimes a new face.  Always a bit of a vintage vibe, which I adore.  They let parents bring their own camera to snap some shots and visitors can even bring their dog if they'd like.  I don't always bring my camera with me when we are just out and about, but I should more often.  Practice makes better.  Glad I had it along with me for the photog mama opportunity to capture my own little elf sitting on Santa's lap this year and for some other magic filled holiday inspired images I've snapped to highlight the joys of the season!  Wishing you and yours a peaceful and Happy Holidays and a bright New Year!

Family Portrait Photography | Historic Downtown Littleton

It's always a thrill to capture families that are also longtime friends, which is exactly what this special family is to me.  I've known the N family for probably 15 years, (since before their oldest son was taller than mom and dad) and having this opportunity to photograph them was a joy!  They are such a humorous, stylish and easy-going family.  They made the shoot so much smoother by being flexible and open to walking around a bit to snap their photos in a bit of an urban vibe setting in this Denver suburb Downtown Littleton location.  Alleys and brick wall textures, but not too grungy for Amy's fabulous heels and this foursome's (oops five with dog Scruffy) natural crisp modern charm!  

Do you need some creative photos taken?  I am available to capture your memories of children or family photos, an event, head shots for business or modeling, fitness, high school senior pics or just for fun!  I specialize in natural light photography and our locations can be somewhere outdoors in Denver and surrounding or booked at an indoor studio (additional studio fee pricing) available for our shoots in the Lakewood area.  Now booking sessions for January through March of 2018!  Looking forward to meeting you.  Let's connect!

Real Estate Photography

Taking real estate or architecture photos could be another way to capitalize on your photography talents! I'm adding real estate photography to my professional photo taking bag-o-tricks and offering my clients shoots that will capture their homes, interior & exterior, remodel projects, room inspiration or needs for selling or renting their properties!  This week I got some extra practice with a quality Tamron wide-angle lens that works awesome with my crop-sensor Canon camera.  I rented the lens through my local camera shop Mike's Camera.  I loved having the wider angle freedom that this lens provided and I'm thinking of purchasing a used one for future property & architecture photo shoots and to be able to play around with a different take on angles for my portrait shoots too!  My favorite lens, the 50mm, does the perfect job for my portraiture and event shoots, but that wider angle is really needed to get a feel of the space in a room. Here are some samples from this week's rental property interior/exterior shoot and I designed some mock-up marketing flyers to give my client as well. Looking forward to more real estate photography opportunities!

A shoot to capture up to 25 digital still images of your Denver locay real estate property, HDR retouching, full or web res digitial downloads for your online or print marketing needs. Approximate time needed 1 hr. $125.
