The Bishop Family | Family Portraits at Garden of the Gods

The Bishop Family found us through our silent auction donation to the Boy Scouts of America. They have three active kids and a love for the outdoors. During ski season, they love traveling to the slopes.

They matched well with Garden of the Gods as the setting for their portraits, and we have to agree that there’s no better location when mountain views and our Southern Colorado landscape are priorities. We just love the variety offered there.

Our one-hour family sessions include plenty of time for full family portraits in a variety of settings throughout the session as well as individual of the kids, all the kids together, and we always want to create updated portraits of mom and dad (all too often, the last time couples had their last couples’ portrait was at their wedding!). As was the case for the Bishops, when families love a lot, all the variety of favorites can come together in a professional album – albums are a favorite keepsake to hold all the favorite poses.

We’ve loved getting to know this family and look forward to senior portraits for their oldest after she finishes junior year!

Isabel | Fountain-Fort Carson High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Isabel is an artsy, creative senior with a self-described “flair of diva!” Her interests include fashion, hair & make-up, and photography. With her love for the outdoors, a natural setting was a great fit for her senior photography session.

Her family serves in the military and hasn’t been in Colorado Springs for too long, so our expertise with great locations helped match her to Red Rock Canyon. We are always happy to include pets in the sessions, and Isabel took advantage of featuring her loved pup in some of her portraits.

Enjoy your final semester of high school, Isabel. We’ve loved getting to know your family and celebrating your accomplishments with lasting photographic art!

Madison | Lewis Palmer High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Madison is an intelligent high school senior who loves science. You can find her outdoors hiking and fishing when not focused on her academics. In the past, she competed on soccer teams. She’s set her career goals on becoming a trauma surgeon. It’s been a joy to reconnect with her family after first photographing Madison’s older brother’s senior portraits in 2016.

Her one-hour Senior Session matched best with Garden of the Gods. The variety there with fields, stunning rock formations, and mountain views is hard to beat! During the session, Madison noticed a cool motorcycle, and Jon secured the owner’s permission to let her take some of her portraits with his bike. Those portraits are some of her very favorites! This is one of so many examples of how Jon strives to bring fun into his photography sessions and leave every family with great memories from their experience.

Enjoy favorites from her summer session!

Hunter | Discovery Canyon Campus High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Hunter is enjoying her senior year at DCC where she plays on the tennis team. When she’s not at school, she loves hanging out with her friends, enjoying the outdoors, taking pictures, listening to music, and loves her dogs. She’s considering pursuing a career in the medical field.

Hunter enjoyed our multi-hour Senior Experience photography session that allowed the variety of locations to capture both the urban and natural settings. Her mom took some “behind the scenes” pictures of Jon at work during the session, and we’re excited to share those alongside the portraits he captured for Hunter. Hopefully this will be a fun look at Jon at work. He photographs all his sessions solo, so when you see him out at about or at your own session, he’ll have his camera on his hip (or in hand) and light stand by his side. His mastery at off camera lighting is one of the biggest distinctions that sets his work apart from many other photographers’ work. Enjoy our favorites from Hunter’s session featured below!

We’ve loved getting to know this wonderful family through both family portraits in the spring and Hunter’s senior portraits in the summer. We discovered along the way that her parents graduated from the same high school in the Houston area as me (Lindsay)! What a small world!! While our years never overlapped, we made sure to pull out our yearbooks (we won’t think about the number of years that have passed for all of us since then…) along the way and enjoyed some good smiles and laughs. We love that our business builds these special relationships and connections with our families we serve.
