Tween Sessions | Studio Portraits for Girls in Evergreen, Colorado

Tween Sessions & The “Who I Am” Project In my studio, I see many sweet little ones, many high school seniors, many entrepreneurs – all coming in for portraits to tell the story of these important times of life. Celebrate achievements, get those “have to” images, and capture times we typically think of capturing. What I’m finding, in my years as a pro photographer, is there’s this big age range that gets overlooked – that Tween age that starts around 9 until hitting the official 1-3…and teenagerhood. This time of life is also a huge transition, as I’m sure we can all remember. It can be confusing, and self-confidence and self-image can get shaky. For me, personally, this was a time of braces, permed hair, shoulder pads (ugh) and huge pink glasses that allowed me to see the chalkboard. I felt like the opposite of beautiful. I was lacking in confidence and in self-belief. Looking back at those images of me now, I see so much there – so much beauty, so much ability. I wish I could go back and give Tween Me a hug and show her how great she really was and let her know that everything was going to be a-okay and to not worry so much.   With this project and with these sessions, I’m making it my personal mission to capture those lost preteen years. The goal is to help tweens look and feel beautiful and have unshakable confidence in themselves when they hit junior high or middle school.   In comes the “Who I am” project and Tween sessions….Click here to read more on...

Summer Series Photography Sessions for Kids

Announcing the 2014 Summer Series Photography Sessions for Kids! This year we’ll have a variety of fun themes to engage the little ones and bring their best expressions so you’ll have your fantastic Summer memories to enjoy all year long. We’ll be (mostly) photographing at our NEW studio space. We’re still in the same building on Bryant Drive, just with a little more room for kids to run around. Here is the run-down (more F.A.Q. below): Frequently Asked Questions about our uber-Special Summer Series Photography Sessions for Kids: 1. I have 3 (or more) children. Can I bring them all? Yes, of course, but I do ask you to book an additional time slot to ensure we have appropriate time to give them all equal smile time in front of the lens. This goes for buddies, cousins, parents, etc. If two sessions still isn’t enough time for you, consider booking a regular family session where you can have your whole family photographed for a whole hour! 2. I have a child who is going to be a high school senior this fall. Can they use this for their senior session. First of all, congrats on surviving the roughest years of teenagerhood! Second, these sessions are designed for younger children and to capture their spirit in an age-appropriate way. Photographing high school seniors is a very different thing. If you’re interested in booking a senior session with me, please let’s do chat. If a mini-session type of arrangement would work best for your needs, please let me know. I may offer this for a limited number of senior sessions, but...
