Nicy’s 40th birthday portraits

I got really behind in sharing photos over the summer and fall, and some great shots got neglected. Case in point: Nicy’s 40th birthday photo shoot, which definitely deserves to be seen! Sooooo, better late than never, please enjoy these fun portraits  Nicy is a wonderfully evolved and positive human and I was so glad to capture some of her joie de vivre in pictures. Instead of lamenting turning 40, she celebrated it and I love that! It was truly a pleasure photographing this gorgeous woman!

Shery + Ken

Hot couple alert! Shery and Ken get all dressed up every year for a fancy annual event held by his employer. This year they decided to document their gorgeousness in a series of portraits at the Mining Exchange before heading off to the party. Wowza! Just look at them! They made my job easy!

A modern-day Audrey!

Have you ever wanted to be Audrey Hepburn, just for one day? Check out these fun portraits I did for a client who’s a big Audrey fan. The dress, tiara and cigarette holder are hers, but most of the other accessories are mine. I have an extensive collection of vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories, and it’s always fun when I get to use that stuff on a shoot!

I’m sure you’ve seen the original inspiration for this image! It’s classic!

In the opening sequence of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, Holly Golightly, after a night of partying, emerges from a cab in front of Tiffany’s. She holds a paper sack containing her breakfast, which she eats while gazing into the shop windows. You can see a still from that sequence HERE.

This image was inspired by a 1953 publicity photo (HERE) from the film “Sabrina”. The client brought her own 1950s-era black phone.

A boy, his truck and his dog :: Kyle’s senior portraits

downtown Colorado Springs senior portraits
I’ve been meaning for a while now to post these senior portraits of Kyle taken in downtown Colorado Springs. I actually took them last fall, and they really needed to be shared with the world because I think they’re wonderful! Kyle brought along his truck, his dog Tucker, his euphonium (better known as a bari), and his color guard rifle. We had so much fun, wandering around downtown Colorado Springs taking his senior portraits. Kyle, you look great!

Kyle is in his school’s color guard, so we decided to try and get a shot of a rifle toss. It took several tries but I think it was worth the effort — this portrait is pretty cool!

Kyle’s dog is named Tucker. He’s such a funny pup.

This has got to be my all time favorite senior portrait. I love it. Tucker has such a cute expression on his face.
