Denver Portrait Photography | Birdee at Wax Trax

I love working with models who have all different levels of experience. Younger models are so eager and willing to take instruction—they are ready to learn! But models with a few years under their belt already know their best angles, where the light is, and how to pose.

And Birdee Bow is exactly that! She knows her stuff! Birdee is a singer and model who splits her time between LA, New York, Vegas, and Denver. With all those location options, I was truly honored that she asked me to help her add to her modeling portfolio.

She’s not just the talent in front of the camera though. She put so much though into the whole shoot. She styled each outfit, did her own hair and makeup, posed herself beautifully, and had so many perfect suggestions for backdrops. It was she who had the idea to shoot at Wax Trax, a local record and CD store here in Denver.

I love it when clients know the value of a good headshot. There are so many reasons to have professional photos taken. Sometimes it has nothing to do with your job or your portfolio. Sometimes you just want to feel beautiful and pampered.

Diane found me one day after walking past my studio. She decided she wanted to have a real photo shoot with a real photographer, and I was thrilled she trusted me to do it for her!

And when we met in person, I was instantly struck by her classic beauty. It was so easy to envision her cast in an old-time drama or silent film. Along with her classic beauty, she loves vintage-inspired clothing and chose the perfect outfits to reflect that.

Modeling Portfolio Building Session - Hannah

Hannah’s mom called me excited to find a photographer who specialized in photographing females, as well as modeling portfolios. We were a perfect match! Her daughter was traveling to the New York City and needed to amp up her portfolio ASAP. She was traveling to meet Muse Models. I was so thrilled to work with a young girl from Colorado Springs and help her on her way to becoming NYC’s next model. Throughout the photo session in our studio and Millennium Bridge, Hannah showed she had what it took to blow any modeling agency out of the water.

I absolutely hate suprises when they are happening to me. My husband is the sweetest guy, and he's always trying to surprise me, but it drives me crazy. I'm a natural born planner and he shakes me out of my element. That being said, I love love love being a part of surprises for other people. I'm a bit of a hypocrite, I know. I even plan lavish surprises for my husband! Serious double standards over here. Kaylee and her grandmother Jackie turned her Denver senior pictures into a huge surprise for Kaylee's mother.

Alexis is an amazing person that I came to adore very quickly when she reached out to me for an internship last year. I had an intern at the time, but truly enjoyed getting a small glimpse of this awesome person all the same. About a year later, Alexis reached out about getting her Denver senior pictures done and I was thrilled to have her opportunity to work with her!

Luisa and I met through her mother and my husband before she was searching for Denver senior portraits. The two of them work together at my husband's non-profit called Re:Vision, so we were bound to meet. We wanted to shoot somewhere in the neighborhood and chose Belmar Park in Lakewood near the Lakewood Heritage Center.  

Luisa and her family loved the idea of doing something in nature, but also getting some of the bizarre and pretty buildings in Lakewood Heritage Center.
