Spring Fling Photo Shoot | Dancer Creative Portrait Studio Photography

This is my second time shooting with the lovely kid model Emmy and girl does she bring her A-Game!  Such a beauty with amazing and strong dance talent as well as a lovely ability to pose and really connect with her photographer and camera.  I just adore this kid and working with her is a breeze.  We decided to book this local creatives studio Denver Photo Collective in my area for our shoot as it has wonderful natural light and I appreciate not having to utilize my flash.  We caught the studio on a super cloudy and dreary weather day, so I wasn't sure how my lighting would be, but to my surprise and delight I shot the entire shoot without a flash, just capturing the breaks in light and snow falling white reflection through the large windows of the studio.  I'm thrilled with how Emmy's creative photos came out.  This current floral backdrop setting, inspired by Mother's Day, and designed by Ellie Cashman Design  is available through May 7th.  If you'd like to book your own fun studio time with Brooke Austin Photo here, please contact me and we will see if we can find a date!  Check out some of my favorites from Emmy's shoot!

Capturing Children

One of my favorite ways to photograph is while children just play or hang out.  And, I love to practice with close-ups!  Of course grabbing my camera when that lighting seems just right, and remembering to bring my camera to normal life activities is part of the process.  I just love to capture friends' kiddos in their natural play, sometimes with ever so slight direction for light poses, but mostly just by hanging out with them for awhile and letting them be their authentic selves while I shoot.  You never know exactly what you're going to get when shooting a lifestyle free-form session.  With kids, you have to be quick and on your toes, be patient and embrace those shots that aren't perfect posed portraits, but often, in my experience can be just as wonderful portraiture type captures, because they freeze the children in a genuine, playful style.  Here's a few favorite recent captures!
