Andrew | Banning Louis Academy | Class of 2021

Andrew is excited to complete high school and pursue his dreams for possible careers in architecture, graphic design, or artificial intelligence.

He’s attended Banning Louis Academy yet is dually enrolled and completing all of his classes this year at the collegiate level with Pikes Peak Community College. When not studying or in class, he enjoys relaxing with video games. Andrew is an accomplished musician and even composes original music on the piano.

Andrew loved choosing an urban setting for his high school senior portraits and matched well with our one-hour Senior Session. We know these portraits will always bring to mind favorite memories from his years in high school.

Congratulations, Andrew! We know you’ll finish strong in the coming weeks, and we’ve loved playing a role in celebrating your accomplishments!

Ella | Village High School | Class of 2021

Ella is an athletic and artistic high school senior who competed on the tennis team for much of high school and who enjoys painting and drawing in her free time. Ella moved from South Dakota to Colorado in 2020. Her love of hiking certainly can continue in beautiful places in our state! As she completes high school, she’s looking ahead to beginning college studies.

For her senior portraits, Ella was most interested in natural, rustic settings and embraced featuring our iconic red rocks alongside fields of natural grasses. 

Congratulations, Ella!

Tall Truths and Short Tales with Russ & Zee | Commercial Portraits

Russ and Zee have big personalities and fill the room with love and laughter and excitement for the messages they bring to their audience for their podcast, Tall Truths and Short Tales. We loved meeting them earlier this year and creating fresh imagery for promoting their podcast and speaking engagements.

Their experiences in the military and as a first responder have given them a wealth of wisdom and insight that guided them in raising their own kids into adulthood. They now seek to help as many young adults as they can with practical and profound truths to navigate the wide range of situations we all face in life. We invite you to take a listen to this engaging couple who have a refreshing honesty and bring humor into every episode.

The Tucker Family | Colorado Springs Family Portraits

We just love the Tuckers! We’ve enjoyed creating their sons’ senior portraits in 2015 and 2019 and finally had the treat to create family portraits for them last summer. In the midst of a year that went so different than anyone saw coming, the portrait sessions we were blessed to photograph gave families opportunities to celebrate their closest relationships and add meaningful art to brighten their homes. We’ve all spent more time at home, and adding joy and love really does make a difference.
