Meeting Jani McCarty, of Love & Light TLC | Evergreen, Colorado Life Coach Portraits.

Jani radiates a warm confidence – she’s the first one to come up and introduce herself at a gathering (this is exactly how I met her!). Her firm-grip handshake tells the story of her ability to connect and to be genuine and compassionate. Jani is a life coach, who calls on her lifetime of experience and the wisdom gained through her own transformation to inspire and encourage her clients. Jani was recently featured in the Evergreen publication, JustAroundHere.com. It’s a great write-up and I’m not going to attempt to out-write a writer, but I will share with you some of my favorite photos from our session! Please comment below and say “hi” to Jani. You can find out more details on working with Jani and upcoming workshops at her website, LoveLightTLC.com xo,...

Senior Model Season – Class of 2014 | High School Senior Photographer Evergreen Colorado.

  She’s just a few months from graduation!  I’ve so enjoyed working with her – Derrien is one cool chickita. Her smile lights up the room, but she keeps things real with her tres’ cool Derrien-isms. Even when going through tough times, her attitude is positive and inspiring. And now – her highlight reel from this past year:...

Portraiture Art – In the River | Creative Art Portraits in Evergreen Colorado

Photoshoot concepts sometimes come with premeditation, sometimes they come on-the-fly. Often, for me, it’s a combination. I’ll hear about some photographers who will fully map out a shoot and have a firm strategy before the shutter snaps once. I think that’s amazing and I wonder if that’s something to aspire to achieve? Maybe. I don’t know if my brain will every be that organized. For this shoot, I had a strong vision going in of exactly what I wanted. And I got it (secret: it’s the fifth image from the top). But then I kept shooting, playing with angles and working with Charistina’s ideas and what she brought to the table (creek, ground, whatever). And I loved these even more. Welcome to images that I love and that were started with a simple idea and then – with intention, conversation, meditation and experimenting with angles and with post-processing became something I will always hold dear.  This shoot was done in collaboration with Charistina Armbruster, an amazing model, creative thinker, and someone who gets things done. She is warm and kind – an all-around wonderful person. The beauty you see here is on par with what she carries inside. I share these images and hope you feel a connection to them as well. The first shot was featured in Vogue Italia’s online publication (very exciting for both Charistina and me!). You can click on the image to visit the Vogue Italia site.     xo, Katy...
