Ashleigh | Rampart High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

We’re loving all of the faces we get to photograph for the Class of 2021, and senior season has been in full swing since summer!

Ashleigh is a very special senior as we created portraits of her and her siblings back when she was just five years old. How fun to now create her high school senior portraits!

Ashleigh plans to be a teacher and is gaining great experience with tutoring jobs that she’s been doing since 8th grade. She loves playing tennis, hanging out with her family and friends, and she loves hiking. Some of her favorite areas to explore include Garden of the Gods and Blodgett Peak.

We’re so excited to share favorites from her senior session in Red Rock Canyon. This easygoing senior sure has stellar portraits to bring back favorite memories from this season in life!

Berson Family | Colorado Springs Family Portraits

We have loved getting to know this family! They have done such an amazing job over the years of intentionally making time for professional portraits of their family and were well taken care of by Pat & Terry of The Family Studio. With Pat & Terry now fully enjoying retirement, we were honored to be entrusted with the new legacy for the Bersons.

Their recent family portraits session was their first time to create portraits on location in one of Colorado Springs’ many beautiful natural spaces. We’re excited to share favorites from their family session and are even more excited to have their finished art in soon for them to begin enjoying in their home.

The Adkins Families | Generations Family Photography | Family Legacy

We were honored to capture these precious family portraits for the Adkins Families! These portraits capture such a sweet time in the life of their family and so many special moments from these early years of their first two granddaughters.

Family portraits are always special for us to create because we understand the power they hold for capturing memories and telling the story of that season in the life of a family. Moments are fleeting; portraits last forever.

Genevieve | Pine Creek High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

As we wrap up the blog features for our Class of 2020 seniors, we are certainly excited to feature Genevieve! She’s a natural leader with strong academic strength as an AP Honors Scholar and a passion for service.

During her time at Pine Creek High School, she was heavily involved in a variety of activities. She served as Commander on the Drill Team and led girls’ Color Guard. She served as the Drill Commander for the unarmed exhibitions squad and competed at the varsity level. She was inducted into the Kitty Hawk Honor Society and Civil Air Patrol and served in leadership roles in both organizations. She was a dedicated member of the D20 Jr. ROTC.

This Spring, Genevieve received one of the esteemed recommendations from Congressman Lamborn to the United States Air Force Academy. We were so excited to see her recommendation, though it certainly did not surprise us that she earned it! As she follows her dreams to serve in the military, she’s planning to pursue studies in aerospace engineering. She would love a career in aviation or space operations. This girl is going places!

Congratulations, Genevieve, on so many accomplishments to be proud of and to propel you into your next chapters in life. We know you’re ready to take on the world with passion and heart.

Tyler | Lewis Palmer High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

About this time every year, we’re deep into photographing the next senior class yet still have a few more seniors to feature who are now recent graduates. Tyler is one of those, and we certainly did not want his session feature to be missed.

Tyler is athletic, friendly, and down-to-earth. He plays both football and baseball, and baseball is the sport that he loves best. His skills have seen him in a variety of positions from pitcher to third baseman to outfield.

Tyler loves being outdoors in the mountains – you’ll often find him hiking and camping. Our areas around Mount Herman and Raspberry Mountain are top favorite trails to explore in our area. We loved providing a unique session setting to create Tyler’s senior portraits on a much-loved trail that holds many memories for him. Jon loved experiencing a fresh location that we later hiked as a family!

As Tyler looks ahead to college, he’s entering fire science studies that will prepare him for a career in fire fighting. With his love for the outdoors, he’s hoping to specifically fight forest fires. We loved being included in his small gathering to celebrate his graduation and also seeing him for our cap and gown event we held in late May.

Congratulations, Tyler! We’ve loved getting to know you and your family and wish you our best as your next steps unfold!
