For the fourth year in a row we’re doing Fall Portrait Mini-Sessions! (GO HERE to book yours now!)
We’ve got 25 time slots spread out over 6 different days and 5 different locations!
Sessions are 25 minutes long and all prints, products, and Holiday cards are available at a 20% discount. And just like last year, sessions are only $95!
Approximately 1 week after your session you’ll come over to my home office to look at all your photos and decide which ones you’d like to keep. (This usually take about an hour…)
This year we’re revisiting some of the popular locations we’ve visited in the past – and we’re adding a couple brand new locations as well featuring waterfalls and graffiti!
First up, we have four AM slots and three PM slots on Saturday, October 1, at Margaret’s Pond in the Legacy Ridge neighborhood in Westminster. Here’s a sample photo from a mini-session I shot there last year:
Then, new this year, we’ll be in the RiNo district in downtown Denver where there is Graffiti in abundance! No fall colors here – think urban street graffiti and you’ve got the idea. Four time slots available here on Thursday, October 6 in the late afternoon. Here’s a sample photo from a recent session there:
Next up we’ll be heading back to our favorite open space area in Broomfield. A nice ‘canopy’ of trees here – like a forest of fall colors! Four morning slots on Saturday, October 8 for this location and then four more afternoon slots here on Sunday, October 16 (No Bronco game on 10/16). Here’s a sample photo from last year:
We’ll be back to Boulder on Sunday, October 9, for three late afternoon sessions. A great mountain silhouhette background is available at this location. Like we were trying to get in this photo:
And finally we’re going to try three late afternoon sessions at El Dorado Springs Canyon state park (between Superior and Boulder) on Wednesday, October 12. NOTE: There is an $8 entrance fee per car! This one is for couples, or for families with older children, as it requires a fair bit of hiking to get to the waterfalls… But once we’re there it makes for a great background!!

Confession Time: I live in the Denver Metro area and wasn’t entirely sure what the ‘RiNo District’ was until this last week.
When Christiane suggested we do their family portraits in the Denver RiNo district I thought ‘I’ve heard of the RiNo District, but I don’t really know what it is’. After researching it a bit, and taking a visit there, I realized that I had been there before, a number of times actually, but it had been a few years… And now this area on the north side of Denver has it’s own ‘vibe’ that seems to me to be very artistic, very young, very urban – and very cool. C’mon – Graffiti is encouraged. How great is that!? I immediately got excited about revisiting this area of town and seeing what we could make of it.
So, I met up with Christiane and her family and we explored the area for a bit – capturing some awesome portraits along the way. Their son turns one in just a couple of weeks and it was time to commemorate this big day! I think we did well.
Just look at those little hands and toes. And those lips! Such perfection and beauty and innocence and sweetness!! I recently had the wonderful privilege of photographing this little angels’ newborn portraits at my home in Westminster, Colorado. We got some great photos of her sleeping, and then she was awake and alert and taking in the scene! Welcome to the world little one – we all can’t wait to see you grow and to meet the woman you will become. But we’re not in a hurry, so take it slow. 🙂
I just love these little babies – even when they cry it’s a celebration of life. And when they quiet and sleep, I sit in awe of the miracle. Kirsten brought baby Sam over for his very first portrait session at just 8 days old, and he did a bit of both. What a wonderful sight.
There’s just something about a newborn baby that makes my heart swell and my soul marvel at such a beautiful gift from God. Wondrous!
