Aaliyah | Rampart High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Aaliyah counts herself among Rampart High School’s most recent graduates! She’s full of life and light and loves being surrounded by color. She enjoys running and singing, and during high school, she was part of the choir program.

Her Senior Session was photographed in Downtown Colorado Springs to bring in lots of colorful backgrounds and give her the urban setting she wanted. We’re excited to share favorites from a fun and colorful photography session!

With high school completed, her next steps include college studies with an emphasis on biology. Congratulations, Aaliyah, and our best to you as your next steps unfold!

Saivon | Liberty High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Saivon is one of Liberty High School’s most recent graduates, and during high school, he enjoyed science, math, and art classes best. When not in school, Saivon loves video games, playing tennis, and he’s competed in Special Olympics. He loves being active outdoors climbing rocks and also loves grabbing coffee with his sisters.

The one-hour Senior Session was a great fit for him to give plenty of time to relax into the photography session. Cheyenne Cañon served as a wonderful setting, and as his mom thought, having his sisters at the session did bring out his best expressions! We love the close bond these siblings all share!

Congratulations, Saivon! Hopefully we will see you again this year as your sister has her senior portraits with us for the Class of 2020!

The Johnson Family | Family Photography at Garden of the Gods

What a treat to be the photographer to capture the very first outdoor family portraits for this family! All of their past experiences were indoor studio sessions at high volume places, so we were thrilled to provide a fully custom, guided, and relationship-focused photography experience.

The Johnsons have lived in Colorado Springs in the past and returned here in 2009. They loved the setting of Garden of the Gods for their photography so that our iconic red rock formations were in the background of their portraits.

All of our family sessions create a variety of poses from the full family to the kids together and individually, and then updated portraits of mom and dad together.

Enjoy some of our favorites from their family session!

Noah | High School Senior Photography | Class of 2019

Noah is an ambitious recent graduate with a passion for documentary film making. He had an amazing opportunity last summer when he was chosen for an exclusive 6-week course during which he and his team created a documentary film about teen suicide. He was able to share some of his own struggles and ultimately, share that his faith and relationship with Jesus brought him grounding in that sense of value and worth. He’s been invited back for a second year to work and learn with this group!

Outside of those passions and interests, Noah composes music and plays piano; is a published author and avid reader; loves LEGOs; and is a black belt in taekwondo.

Along with his siblings – he’s a triplet! – we photographed his senior portraits both in Colorado Springs and in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. This family has a sense of heart and home in both places, and it was truly special to travel with them to Wisconsin. In fact, our daughter now wants to live there one day!

Noah’s Colorado Springs settings for his photography included Glen Eyrie Castle, Downtown Colorado Springs, and Garden of the Gods; his Sheboygan, Wisconsin settings included the family farm, boardwalk and beach, and Kohler-Andrae State Park.

His future plans have many potential directions with all of his passions and giftings – he’d enjoy expanding his published writings, designing for LEGO, and/or script-writing for documentary films. We know God will help direct all his next steps.

Congratulations, Noah!
