Senior Portraits in Cheyenne Canon :: Grace

Colorado Springs senior portraits in Cheyenne Canon

Check out these gorgeous Colorado Springs senior portraits in Cheyenne Canon! This is Grace, and we took these in October (I know, I know, it took me a while to share them). North Cheyenne Canon Park is one of my favorite spots for portraits, especially in October. Fall is my favorite time of year! Grace was a natural in front of the camera, and as you can see, she’s quite photogenic. It was a real pleasure photographing her senior portraits!

Senior Pictures at the Garden of the Gods :: Rachel

senior pictures at the Garden of the Gods

I couldn’t wait to share these gorgeous senior pictures at the Garden of the Gods of Rachel, the daughter of one of my oldest, dearest friends, Janet. It seems like just yesterday Rachel was an adorable baby, and now she’s practically all grown up. (Sniff!) They live in southern California so naturally Rachel’s classmates tend to get their senior portraits done at the beach. That’s nice, but she wanted something different: she wanted mountains! Yes! Happy to oblige!

Where’s the best view in town? I’m sure you know the answer! When Rachel, Janet and Ethan visited last month over Thanksgiving, we of course made a bee line for the Garden of the Gods and that magnificent vista we’re so famous for here in Colorado Springs. Rachel had never seen it before. It couldn’t be more different from SoCal, that’s for sure. Afterward we hit up the historic Manitou Springs Arcade for nostalgia’s sake (Janet worked there when we were in college). Rachel thought that was pretty awesome, too.

These senior pictures at the Garden of the Gods came out 100% fabulous and I couldn’t be happier with them! Love you to pieces, Rachel! You’re simply beautiful!

Senior Portraits on the Beach :: Lucas

Colorado Springs senior photos

I don’t do that many seniors, which I think is a good thing because when I do get the privilege, I’m more creative with my ideas. I did these fun senior portraits of Lucas several months ago (I know, I’m just a little behind on blogging) in La Jolla, California. Yes, California! Far from Colorado Springs, indeed! His mother commissioned me to do family portraits at La Jolla Cove, and on the same day do Lucas’s senior portraits. What a great location! They actually live in Phoenix, so this was a change of scenery for all of us, and we had a really fun time. Lucas is a stylish guy, so I wasn’t at all surprised that he got duded up in a really nice suit and then changed into a pink sweatshirt. He’s a guy who can pull that kind of thing off without blinking —  a true fashion maverick! I love it when teenagers aren’t afraid to be a little different.  And I love that he brought his long board all the way from Phoenix just so he could use it in his senior portraits. He looks so cool! Oh and that camera isn’t a prop. Lucas is a great photographer and he prefers to shoot film instead of digital. You should see his work. It’s fantastic!

This is all a little bit bittersweet for me, because I’ve known Lucas for a long time. He’s about to graduate from high school, but I’ve been photographing him since he was a little guy. In fact, I did his first photo shoot when he was less than a year old. He was so cute! And how he’s so tall, I feel like a such a shortie when I stand next to him! It was a great pleasure to be able to make these special portraits for him and his mom. Go Lucas! You’re going to do great things!

Fashion portraits on the beach!

Long time client Heather, who lives in Arizona, commissioned me to fly to southern California to do three shoots in one:  family portraits, senior portraits for her oldest son, and some very special fashion portraits of just her wearing a fabulous, slinky red gown. This, ladies, is my forté:  photographing women beautifully. We wandered up and down La Jolla Cove as the waves crashed, and I got some simply amazing pictures of her. If you would like to dress up and create some incredible portraits like these, for no other reason than you’re gorgeous and you deserve to feel beautiful, contact me for a consultation.
