Julian | Cheyenne Mountain High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

We’ve been photographing portraits for Julian’s family since he was quite a bit younger, so what a delight to tell this part of his story and create portrait art to capture their favorite memories from this season of his life.

Julian is an incredibly talented musician. He excels in singing, guitar, piano, and songwriting. With Cheyenne Mountain High School he’s in three choir groups and has made a music video with his a cappella group. Music has been a significant part of his life and he plans to continue collegiate studies in vocal performance with hopes of being a pop singer and recording artist.

It’s an honor to have been photographing Julian over all these years, and we truly can’t wait to hear updates as you pursue your dreams.

Ryan | Colorado Springs Christian School [CSCS] High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

Ryan is a musical and athletic high school senior with an easygoing and friendly personality. He competes in soccer and loves skiing in the winter months. Musically, Ryan excels in both guitar and piano and serves with his gifts at Mountain Springs with the youth group worship teams. Faith and family are both close to his heart.

As Ryan nears the finish line of graduation, he’s already been accepted to the college of his choice and looks to pursue forensic sciences. He’d also love to study music production. We’re excited to hear updates on all his next steps as the coming years unfold!

I’ve been in Bible Studies with Ryan’s mom for years and loved the opportunity to serve her family’s professional photography needs for a portrait artist for Ryan’s senior portraits! Our friends who become clients truly bless us.

Destiny | Rampart High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

Destiny is an easygoing, yet determined and driven high school senior. She enjoys hiking, walking, biking, reading and writing. She’s a friendly people-person and loves cats. She’s an incredibly talented member of Rampart High School’s Color Guard, and Jon loved creating dynamic senior portraits featuring this area of significant talent. Her favorite areas of study include English and the sciences. She’s pursuing an appointment to the Air Force Academy.

Destiny loves spending time outdoors and we loved creating her senior pictures in a place meaningful to her and connected to many of her memories from this time in her life. Her family is returning to us after photographing her older brother in the Class of 2019, and we greatly appreciate their continued business and trust in us for their important moments in life.

The Sauerwein Family | Colorado Springs Family Photography

This family has become so special to us as we’ve now photographed their family every year since 2015. What an honor to be their family’s portrait artist and storyteller and creating their legacy art. Their daughter is a joy to see each year, and it’s especially touching to watch her fall in love with each new set of portraits of herself and with her parents. Their 2020 photography session took them on a relaxed hike through a new area of Garden of Gods that we’d not explored before. We’re loving the fun challenge of continuing to find new places for each session. The timing of their session added beautiful fall colors to their backgrounds. We’re excited to share favorites from the most recent session. Thank you, Sauerweins, for your continued business and trust in us. Can’t wait to see you in 2021!

The Shepard Family | Destination Family Portraits in Colorado Springs

What a fun portrait session! The Shepards are from the Houston area and recently vacationed at a gorgeous Air B&B property on the north side of the Colorado Springs area. They were excited to create family portraits in the mountains (as you might imagine or know from experience, Houston has a “slightly” different geography and climate than Colorado Springs) and hoped for wintery scenes. Jon had a great time creating timeless and artistic portraits of their family, their kids, individuals of their kids, and couple’s portraits, delivering that wintery mountain feel they desired. After those were created, Jon captured fun-filled moments playing in the snow. The session ended with a fantastic, epic snowball fight. We know these portraits will forever capture favorite memories from their time together in Colorado, and while the weather delivered winter, their hearts will be filled with warmth enjoying these portraits as finished art in their home.
