Kianna: Creative Senior Portrait Photos in Denver

Shooting Kianna’s senior photos has completely sold me on creative urban portraiture. We met outside Denver’s Union Station on a warm and bustling Sunday afternoon and immediately hit it off. First we took photos in a cool white stairwell overlooking the trains which provided really interesting light and angles. Then we ventured around the city blocks, finding great light, edgy brick backdrops, curbs to sit on, walls to lean against, and whatever else I could dream up!

Kianna was such a trooper, taking direction from me and posing like a pro. I honestly think this girl should model if she wants to! Since we already had created the minimum shots within the first ten minutes we spent the remaining hour or so getting creative and I used a few new camera techniques (intentional slow shutter and free lensing) to create some dreamy photo effects. Kianna had let me know that while this shoot was mainly for her senior photos, she also was hoping to walk away with some creative portraits for herself since she’s no ordinary teen.

I think it was this shoot that really showed me I love working with seniors because the shoots are that much more fun and creative. We wound up thoroughly enjoying the shoot, laughing a lot, and coming away with incredible images.

💎 If you’re a senior and are looking for more unconventional, creative shots, please reach out! We will have a great time and I’m super openminded towards your ideas, but also can provide plenty of my own if you need some inspo! :)

Amy Koo: Boulder Senior Portraits

Amy and I had the best time shooting her senior portraits in downtown Boulder. We started at one of my favorite colorful brick walls and then made our way over to Ozo for coffee and that ethereal window light, and mixed in a fire escape or two along the way. Next we tossed leaves in the air and balanced on rocks by the creek, and finally found epic rainbow light on the concrete staircase of an industrial office building overlooking the flatirons.

City shoots are just as much fun as shooting out in nature because there’s so many different backdrops and ideas to play with. Alleys in particular. ;)
