Boulder High School Senior Portraits

We took our first senior portraits of the season this weekend in Boulder. Hoping to have lots more seniors chose an early appointment rather than waiting for the fall deadlines - once they are back in school it gets really hard to schedule! Over the years we had several different packages, but this year went to just one favorite package - $250 for one hour and 40 digital images on CD. More details here...

And some favorite senior portraits taken over the years:

Sometimes it helps to bring a friend along - either one that needs senior portraits also or just a friend to make you laugh! Smiling at the camera for a full hour can be a challenge, unless you're looking for a career in modeling, so we keep it fun and light and try to capture the true personalities of our senior portrait clients.

Boulder Senior Portraits - It's that time of year again!

We're starting to get lots of requests in for senior portraits - most Boulder County schools have an early October deadline. And this year have moved to just one package - one 60 minute package with 40 final images on CD/DVD and a Facebook Timeline image to share with friends. This week we sent out 1,000 senior portrait flyers through Niwot High School, Longmont High School, and Erie High School. The deadlines and requirements can be found on these links:

Niwot High School due Friday, October 11th, 2013

Erie High School due November 1st, 2013

Longmont High School

Boulder High School due September 13th, 2013

Fairview High School due November 1st, 2013

We always recommend getting senior portraits done EARLY as once the school year begins students are extremely busy and portraits get harder and harder to schedule!

Boulder Baby Photographer - Baby Levi 6 days old!

We photographed Baby Levi at just six days old - he slept through the entire shoot - I only had a minute or two that his eyes were open, but I love the outcome. Big brother Tyler was at preschool - but maybe I can catch the two boys together in a few weeks. Some of my favorite shots from the session are below. Thanks Tina for letting me "experiment" with little Levi!

East Boulder County Artists Studio Tour - Continues TODAY Sunday May 5th

I had the pleasure of visiting a number of artists' studios yesterday along the tour set up by the East Boulder County Artists Association. Very inspiring! Maps are available at every location and more info on their website at www.ebcacolorado.org. The studios are open from 11-5pm on Saturday and Sunday and 39 different artists are participating in Longmont, Erie, Louisville and Lafayette! I thought even some of the houses were inspiring and a little bit of art in themselves!

Suzanne and I are 2 of the 11 artists that will be part of the Prospect Studio Tour coming up on June 22nd and 23rd - more information to come. And this last photo is not part of the tour, just a photo I snapped of the outside of another Prospect business yesterday - the Nest. I love this store!

Colorado Children's Photos - May Day in Colorado!

What a week of children's photos. I spent two mornings at Lake Dillon Preschool in Dillon doing class and individual photos and then this morning at Alexander Dawson School in Lafayette doing photos for Grandparents Day. All of them really warmed my heart! Although I don't think I have the patience to be a teacher, I do like my occasional school photo day! May Day in Dillon was a snowy one - and I got a few candid photos on the playground - what a crowd - one person said I was being "chased by cherubs!" Thanks for making me smile kiddos!

and this last photo was just taken of a kindergarten art project on the wall at Dawson School - I thought it was so expressive and wonderfully done. Officially I'm probably breaking copyright laws taking a photo of this student's artwork, but I hope his parents will understand! This image just makes me smile!

and isn't there some similarity between the kids on stage singing and the stick people drawn? or did I just get giddy?
