"She looks me in the eye
'Cause I'm a joyful girl" -ani difranco
M, a natural that any camera would love.

Preview images from a head shots session with this beauty at a local Denver urban locay.  We caught the last half hour before sunset and seemed to luck out with some lovely lighting.  However, head shots sessions go so well when you get a dreamy little tween like this girl who is a natural and knows just where to look, stays focused and follows directions.  Knocked her shoot outta the park in no time flat!  She loves horses and was excited to have a little piece of her passion represented in her styling by wearing her horse charm necklace!  These modern tween girls have such an eye for accessorizing.  Stay Golden sweet M girl!  Thanks for an easy, on point head shots session.

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.

Winter Market Holiday Photo Booth

'Tis the Season to Smile!  Had a lot of fun creating a holiday backdrop for a photo booth at this local Winter Market last weekend.  My sister-in-law, Jenny, of , also a photographer-in-training teamed up with me to snap the market attendees photos during the event.  I haven't shot much with a good flash, so getting our lighting right was a bit of a challenge, luckily we got some tips from a more seasoned photographer, it was good practice and we offered the photos for free!  I borrowed the lovely vintage chair from the furniture and art store I work at, found some simple, but festive props, snapped some shots, and then put them all in a gallery and sent the link to everyone for them to download their images.  I look forward to doing more fun event backdrops or photo booth mini-sessions in the future.  Take a peek at few captures from our day!
