When MacKenzie first reached out to me, I heard things from her that most women say:

“I’m uncomfortable in front of the camera.”

“I don’t know what do with my hands when my photo is taken.”

“I know I need to do these, but I’m nervous about it.”

I feel like women have this idea in their head that they don’t deserve to feel beautiful or look pretty when being photographed. Like confidence is only something models should feel in front of the camera. And that’s exactly what I love to photograph women. Not because of the insecurity, but in spite of it.

Maya came to me for updated headshots as she is expanding her brand and business. It’s always so exciting to photograph people as they embark on something new. I love getting to be a small part of that journey.

Maya has been a real estate professional  in Colorado for decades. And over that time, she’s learned absolutely everything anyone needs to know about buying or selling a home. She says that she provides “everything but living with you.” She loves to go the extra step for clients, providing them as seamless a transaction as possible.

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.
