Mead High School Senior Portrait

Colorado Senior Portrait, River Senior Portrait

Rachel, a Mead High School senior, knew exactly what she wanted for her senior portrait, making my job almost too easy. As we photographed I learned why this place in Lyons, Colorado, along the St. Vrain River was so special to her family. It’s where they picnic, spend holidays in the summer, and very near […]

Longmont Christian School Senior Portrait

Longmont Christian Senior Aaron Rodarte

We understand that life gets busy. We all forget important things, but as the old saying goes: “Better late than never.” Usually by September and October we’ve wrapped up the senior portrait season. Yearbook deadlines are normally long gone by January, but we were happy to help out Aaron and accomodate the extended deadline given […]

Fun Family Photos in the Winter

Family photos at the Butterfly Pavilion

Happy New Year to all!! We’re really excited for the upcoming year. We already have several weddings booked all over the U.S. and are adding more. To kick off 2013 I thought I’d share the last session of 2012. Several weeks ago we had a contest on our Facebook page for a free family photo session […]

Longmont Christian School Senior Portrait

Joe Leetch Senior Portrait

Meet Joe. Joe plays basketball and football for the Warriors at Longmont Christian School.  When we met a few months back the light was fading quickly, due to a cloudy sky and a late start. So when we left McIntosh Lake in the dark I suggested we maybe shoot another day to add a bit […]

Brett is a student at Pomona High School in Arvada and has aspirations to do video game design. He works every night in October for a local Halloween scare house, because it’s fun for him. He’s also lettered academically the last two years and is well on his way to a third. So needless to […]

Standley Lake High School seniors from young twins…

Standley Lake High School senior photos of twins Andrew and Katie

  It’s that time of the year for senior photos and yearbook deadlines. A few weeks ago we met up with Katie and Andrew. They are twins getting set to graduate from Standley Lake High School in Westminster, Colorado. The cool, yet scary thing is, that I’ve been photographing Katie and Andrew and their family […]

Ashlee’s Ellicott High School Senior Portrait

Ashlee flexes her muscles in a few sports at Ellicott High School, which lies to the east of Colorado Springs in El Paso County. When I spoke to her a couple weeks ago about where she’d like to have her senior portraits taken she said “by just something old. Like a barn or truck or […]

Baby Max’s first photo shoot

He’s already over a month old, but Andrea wanted to get some photos of her newborn, Maxwell. Max is her second little one and had some photos done of her first, John, shortly after his birth as well. So she came over for a visit and let little man Max wiggle around for the camera […]

Standley Lake High School Seniors Katie and Robert

Robert Maestas of Standley Lake High School

Katie picked a great place to have her senior portrait taken in Arvada. Before we could email back a list of possible locations she told her mom they were going to their long-time friends’ backyard in Arvada, not too far from Standley Lake High School. They also asked if we could take her boyfriend Robert’s senior […]

Longmont High School Senior Athlete

Last month I received a call from Kelly asking if I could swing a different kind of portrait of her son — quickly. Jared, a Colorado state qualifying golfer from Longmont High School, needed a portrait to hang on the wall at the school by 3 p.m. on a Friday afternoon. The photographer they hired […]

Meet baby Taylor, who sat perfectly for her first infant portrait session in Denver.

A well deserved retirement

We’ve all heard the buzz words: layoffs, downsizing, efficiencies, the list can go on. In the current economic climate we probably all know many people who are victims of the “great recession.” This young woman is the exception. In fact, it was a breath of fresh air to get a call from one of our […]

Niwot High School Senior – Laura

Laura, a senior at Niwot High School, wanted some simple portraits done that incorporated some of the fall colors we’re fortunate enough to have in northern Colorado. It was funny when we met to talk about their vision she and her mother said nothing cliché like laying in the grass with feet up in the […]

Ian – Vista Ridge High School Senior

Ian is a not-so-serious Vista Ridge High School senior from Colorado Springs who brought his own ideas to a senior portrait session.

Miss Quincy turns six months

Miss Quincy turned six months old last week and her mom, Jen, wanted to get some photos of her since their big move from the Lone Star State a few weeks ago. Q usually is a super smiley tot, but for some reason she decided to play hard to get with her gummy grins for […]

Sara – A University of Colorado Senior

Josh Buck fought the wind and the wind kinda won. If you’ve been in Colorado this spring you’ll know it’s been windy. This past Sunday was no different. The wind and rain drops forced us to cut our session a little short. Despite the crummy weather he managed to squeeze off some frames, between gusts […]

First Born Newborn – A Glimpse of the Future

I’m an only child, but you might be amazed at how often I’m called “Uncle Josh.” I’ve been blessed with several nieces and nephews through very close friendships with some fantastic people. Now with my marriage last summer, I have three wild nephews that are legally recognized and about a dozen others that are just […]
