Pink Burst | Ready to Pop | Mama-to-be Maternity Shoot 💕

Super fun time shooting this darling, gorgeous, strong, Mama-to-be for her maternity session at the Denver Photo Collective’s newest studio space in Downtown Denver. The new studio is located in the vibrant Santa Fe Art District area and offers the metro area and surrounding a great space for photography, events and creative collabs. For their Grand Opening, they set up a lovely styled set in various pink shades with their new dusty rose colored velvet sofa. I knew this would be a great match for photographing mama Hanna, who is due any day with her first baby girl, and blessed the opportunity and timing made it all happen. The DPC has their original studio located right near my hood in the Lakewood area, just west of Denver. I can book time at either studio and can’t wait to capture all you lovelies in studio and beyond. Here’s a peek at some of my favorite shots from Hanna’s session. Can you believe this mama can do all her yoga posing just a couple weeks before her due date? Amazing strength and flexibility! And, so inspiring! Sending vitality & healthy vibes to this warrior woman for a strong labor & birth. Namaste.

This fella is the prettiest baby (err, ten year old) in the world, but I might be a little biased.  I know I know, he's not a baby anymore (can't seem to stop him from becoming a tween), but he's my only baby.  Always wanting to grow my talent and studio photography skills and this darling muse, who also happens to be my son, needs to keep working on his craft and hobby-job of modeling, so together we make an ever evolving creative team!  He did a great job knocking out these photos in a short amount of studio space time and we managed to produce a nice representation of my vision for these updated head shots.  I'm sure it's not easy having your mom boss you around and demand photo poses and cooperation for an hour while she snaps her camera like a mamarazzi. 

As he continues to grow, and as long as he's invested in the art of modeling, I am committed to snapping new shots of his pretty little face.  Also, just an excuse to take photos of my kid for back to school, 5th grade, new year, new adventures!  I'd love to capture your head shots in this crisp white backdrop, a studio space I rent in the Denver area.  The Denver Photo Collective is a super chill spot where we can snag studio time privately for your photo session.  The space is just a short drive west of downtown Denver, with some props available for our use or you're welcome to bring your own.  Actors, models, comics, dancers, bloggers, creatives or just for fun!  Let's create!
Need a mockup or custom Comp Card? I can help with that too!  I'm actively seeking high school seniors and would love to do more product photography too, and this would be a great spot to shoot in. 
How can I personalize a photo shoot for you?

Another round of fun with this dream girl!  I love snapping her 11 yr old charm going on 17 yr old graceful face.  She's a dancer and a young local print & commercial model in training and with those natural lashes and legs for days, she's well on her way!  A truly photogenic gem, but also so great about taking direction, willing to try something new and open to letting me test & fail my photography skills with her as the subject.  As an added bonus, her mom jumped in the frame and we got to capture some sweet mother + daughter portraits in front of the studio's lovely floral Mother's Day inspired backdrop.  Boom!  In the studio at Denver Photo Collective for this shoot, all natural sunlight and a sprinkle of pixie dust.
