Greta: Creative Portraits

boulder portrait photographer | colorado portrait photography | creative outdoor portraits | blogger photography session


I think shooting with friends or family is almost more of a challenge than shooting strangers. Maybe it’s because you think you already know them well, or at least the side they like to reveal to friends or family. Ever have a surprisingly honest and meaningful conversation with a stranger on a plane or bus? It’s the same with photography, I think.

Greta is an old friend of mine and someone I’ve travelled with and lived abroad with. She’s one of the most unique, inspiring, and caring people I know, so I love capturing her beautiful face whenever I get the chance if only to give a little love back to her in the form of pretty pictures. Below are some portraits taken over the years, from snow and ferns to the desert. Oh and I might have snuck in a few doggie portraits of her border collie Monty. ;)
