Niah | Vista Ridge High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

Niah has been active in Vista Ridge’s choir program and the ROTC program throughout high school. She loves exploring the backcountry on ATVs and loves spending time in Manitou Springs and Helen Hunt Falls.

She’s been through a lot over the past year, and we do hope these portraits remind her of her beauty and strength and also bring connection with loved ones she is missing greatly. We know she is learning how to honor memories and hold close those she loves with both this final year of high school and as she takes her next steps after graduation.

As Niah completes these high school chapters, she’s looking ahead to college studies and would love to pursue at PhD in Forensic Psychology.

Enjoy favorites from her one-hour senior session in Cheyenne Cañon, complete with vibrant fall colors.

Lainey | Newborn & Family Studio Portraits

We are so honored to continue to tell the story of this family! We photographed their wedding in 2017, maternity portraits for both daughters (first in 2018 and then earlier this year), and just recently, met and photographed their newest addition, Lainey.

Indoor studio sessions are ideal for baby portraits, especially in the winter months! Their photography session created a perfect mix of individual newborn portraits and both sister moments and sweet moments with mom and dad.

Enjoy favorite portraits from a session that welcomes Lainey into the world!

Kras Family | Back-to-Back Mini-Sessions for Family and High School Senior Portraits

Each year, we see many of our high school senior families desire family portraits as this milestone moment comes for one of their kids. We have families choose to do these sessions on different days, sometimes different seasons, and other times, the best fit is back-to-back. As long as each session receives a dedicated session, we’re completely flexible as to how to best come alongside the unique preferences of each family.

For the Kras family, back-to-back mini-sessions served them best, and Cheyenne Cañon created a great setting for both their son’s senior portraits and then family portraits. Mini-sessions are fantastic options when families want to create a smaller set of fantastic portraits while never sacrificing quality of portraits. Our mini session families are able to create the same high quality wall art, professional portrait prints, and custom cards, and we even have album and collage options for our seniors who choose mini sessions.

We’re excited to share favorites from these two sessions completed back-to-back earlier this year. Each session celebrated the moments that mattered most to this great family and gives them gorgeous legacy pieces to enjoy in their home and always bring to mind favorite memories for both their son’s high school years and this season in the life of their family.

Hailey | Air Academy High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

We loved reconnecting with this family for Hailey’s senior portraits!  She loves vintage and has appreciation for old records, old cars, and throwback vintage finds. She loves listening to music when she’s not in school or studying.

As she looks ahead to her next steps after high school, Hailey plans to pursue a career in forensic science or as a medical examiner.

We’re excited to share favorites from a great senior session with her in Old Colorado City!
