The Mantonyas reside in the heart of the Midwest, and when mom was planning to compete in the race up Pikes Peak last summer, their oldest daughter had the thought that it would be perfect to photograph her high school senior portraits in Colorado.
Each year we work with a nice handful of out of state families who choose us to capture portraits in the mountains – something completely unique from what their home cities have to offer. We have a great time with these families and have created a variety of ways in which we bridge the distance of miles between us for the “before” and “after” steps of our client experience.
The Mantonyas wanted to make sure to give their high school senior a wonderful, dedicated time for senior portraits, so they chose our one-hour session for her. We helped match her to Red Rock Canyon for the location of her portraits. We then helped them add a mini-session for their family photography and were able to match them with Mesa Overlook for the family portraits. The two locations gave them wonderful variety of settings and scenes yet also ones that all complimented each other well. We made sure to help them do the sessions back-to-back as their time in Colorado was limited, yet each type of photography had a dedicated time. We feel it is incredibly important to give each type of portrait a dedicated time to be the focus. With multiple session structures to choose from, we can come alongside every client family uniquely – for this family, it was a perfect combination of a one-hour with a mini-session. We’re excited to share favorites from each of their sessions!
