Family Photos | Downtown Denver RiNo District | Love this City!

A family photo session helps capture memories that can be enjoyed forever! Whether it’s an annual tradition for your family or the first time in a long time that you’re setting up family photos, spending that time together, having some fun and getting photos done makes for an adventure that you can cherish. I love for you to feel as comfortable as possible during our session, so planning ahead just a little can be helpful. The Romeros set up a session for me to take some family pictures as well as snap a handful of senior photos for their son. I am loving their crisp and preppy navy blue, white and khaki color-coordinating outfits against the gritty textures the murals and vibe Downtown RiNo District offers. I absolutely love mom’s sassy heels, which can be a great way to elongate the legs and dress up a casual outfit just a bit! Think color coordinating, not necessrily matching, when planning your outfits of ‘What to Wear’ for a photo shoot. Don’t wait until the last moment to style yourselves, if at all possible. I met the Romero family in front of Denver Central Market and they came ready with style, a positive attitude and their older son was so flexible about getting those fun guy poses to make his high school senior pics look great! This setting is really just amazing for capturing fun family pics and senior photos, perfect for your modern teens who want to showcase themselves in a colorful way. There are blocks and blocks of endless possibilities for backdrops at this photo shoot location. And, how about that dog?! The Romeros brought their new, ridiculously cute Sheepadoodle puppy to the session and he was a delight! I’m happy to photograph your pet with your family, if we can make the details work. I know pets are a big part of the family for many of you. It’s not too early to book your Fall Family Photos. My calendar tends to fill up fast in the Fall/Winter months. Interested in a family session with Brooke Austin Photo? I would be thrilled to photograph you next! Thank you Romero family for the vibrant session! You’re a gorgeous family!

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.

the G family + modern family outdoor portraits | denver area photographer

I loved meeting this family for the first time earlier this month! They were referred to me by other photo client/friends of mine and Mom reached out to me hoping for an outdoorsy setting shoot. I am so grateful for clients who share about my work and their experience or reviews of doing shoots with Brooke Austin Photo. Your family photos are my art, my creative outlet and my passion work. Word of mouth growth is a significant and appreciated piece of my small business. The G family were troopers as it was a bit chilly for our mini session, but they were super cooperative and the kiddos were absolute photogenic gems! They kept me on my toes and kept me smiling and giggling with their energy the whole session. I feel like I could photograph children all day, everyday! Thank you for a sweet opportunity to capture your family in this rustic Colorado setting.

Highlands Ranch Family Photographer | Children + Fall Photos | E Family Preview

I’m so glad I squeezed this darling crew in at the end of a sunshine and warm temperature day, because less than 12 hours after this shoot, the Colorado temps had dropped to 21 degrees with snow! What a treasure to photograph these amazing triplets and their equally amazing parents! Kids move fast, but these darlings are so well-behaved and kind and I feel blessed to have captured some sweet frames! They sure make my job fun, keep me challenged and on my toes.

Sometimes the best photos aren’t perfectly posed or showing each family member with a perfect smile, sometimes just capturing those moments of closeness to document this season in life make for a cherished photo. I just love photographing your families, when you’ve taken the effort to style yourselves up and come with an open & hopeful heart to get some family portraits!
