Ethan | High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Ethan is a caring and outgoing guy who loves spending time with his close group of friends. They enjoy video games and long boarding. Ethan also loves bowling and has played baseball in the past.

Winter is Ethan’s favorite season, so it worked perfectly to capture his portraits in February. He has great memories hiking Mt. Cutler in Cheyenne Cañon, so we loved matching his session location to this place. Plus, the canyon is one of the best places to have snow throughout our winter months.

As Ethan looks ahead to his future steps, he’d love to teach math. It’s been his favorite subject in school. One of his math teachers also has been one of the encouraging and impactful influences and inspired Ethan’s current career aspirations.

Enjoy favorites from a winter senior photography session!

Austin + Lucy | Wedding Portraits in Cheyenne Cañon

Austin and Lucy moved to Colorado from Anchorage and were excited to have Jon create gorgeous wedding portraits for them in Cheyenne Cañon this past fall. That setting was perfect because they wanted to have a place that bridged their time in Alaska with these new chapters beginning here, so the evergreens and water helped play into both Alaska and Colorado scenery.

We are excited to share favorites from their photography that plays to romance, fun, and captures the closeness they enjoy in their relationship.

Congratulations, Austin & Lucy! It’s been a joy to provide you with the wedding photography you dreamed to have to capture this special milestone in your lives.

Jesse | The Classical Academy (TCA) | High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Jesse is an outdoorsy, energetic high school senior. He loves rock climbing, snowboarding, and ultimate frisbee. He also wrestled in the past. At school he’s active with the band and plays tuba.

Jesse chose our most popular Senior Session, and because Garden of the Gods brings so many amazing mountain views and variety of our Colorado landscape, it was a wonderful setting for his portraits.

As Jesse finishes high school, he’s looking forward to pursuing a degree in engineering, and he’s most interested to specialize in either mechanical or aeronautics.

Congratulations, Jesse, on your upcoming graduation. Enjoy the celebrations, and we wish you our best with all your next steps!

Angelina | Falcon High School | Class of 2019

Angelina is an adventurous high school senior who enjoys hiking, spending time with her friends, aquatics, and traveling. She hiked the Grand Canyon as one of her more recent adventures! She also loves her two dogs.

She’s about to complete high school and plans to begin college in the fall. She’s keeping her options open but is considering environmental engineering as a possible career path.

We’ve photographed her older brother’s senior portraits and family portraits for her family in the past, so it was wonderful to reconnect. Angelina was excited to use unique locations for her session, so we helped build her Senior Experience photography session around Manitou Springs and Gold Camp Road.

Congratulations, Angelina, on your upcoming graduation. Enjoy all the celebrations!

Julianna | Destination: Colorado Springs | High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Each season, we work with a fun handful of out of state families who travel to Colorado Springs for their photography. Julianna came to us from Louisiana, both because she loves the mountains of Colorado and also because her cousins (whom we have photographed) insisted she choose us for photography! We appreciate their strong recommendation and know referrals are our highest compliment.

Julianna loves music and is both a singer and pianist. She loves the outdoors, from waterfalls to mountain scenes – plus, being from Louisiana and traveling to Colorado in March, she hoped for a little snow too. She was excited to feature a lot of outfits during her senior portraits photography session, and we love all the different colors, textures, and layers she brought. With all the outfits to feature, she benefited from our longer two-hour session, The Senior Experience. We helped match her to two of our favorite locations: Cheyenne Cañon & Garden of the Gods. And we even found her some snow!

Enjoy our favorites from this fun destination session to our part of the world! And congratulations, Julianna, on your upcoming graduation. We’ve loved being a special part of the celebration of your accomplishments.
