The Christensen Family | Red Rock Canyon Family Portraits

The Christensen Family serves our country in the Air Force and past service with the Marines, and we are grateful for their service. As with many of our military families, we are often invited to create family portraits with iconic Colorado scenery to represent their time here. We chose Red Rock Canyon for their photography session location. This location brings both grand landscapes and intimate settings in fields and forests. Enjoy our favorites from their portraits!

Emily | Trinidad High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Emily is a friendly, fun-loving high school senior who is very gifted musically. She plays french horn, piano, and the ukulele. She also plays soccer competitively.

Emily’s family lives in Trinidad and traveled to us for her senior portraits. They were excited for the spectacular scenery of Garden of the Gods, and given that this was a January photography session, that location is one that keeps its beauty year round.

We’re excited to share favorites from her recent session and have been a special part of the celebration of her upcoming high school graduation!

Kiara | Fountain-Fort Carson High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Kiara loves science, space exploration, and anything from the world of science fiction and technology. She’s quite intelligent and sees herself pursuing physics engineering to lead to jobs potentially with the FBI or NASA. When not studying, you can find her boxing or playing video games.

Kiara loved a more urban setting that would give her backgrounds of graffiti and weathered textures and colors, so we helped match her to Old Colorado City for her photography location.

Kiara, we’re excited for you to finish high school with excellence and shine in all your next steps!

The Brescia Family | Family Photography at Garden of the Gods

As with so many families, the Brescia Family knew their oldest son’s senior year presented an important time to not only commemorate his life milestone but also celebrate their whole family. We love helping each family build the ideal combination of sessions, and we offer a variety of options to meet each family’s individual needs and preferences. For the Brescia Family, their family photography was the focus, and they were excited for wall art and finished art prints that captured their close family relationships and Colorado beauty.

For this active, close-knit family, Garden of the Gods became the perfect setting for both senior and family portraits.

Enjoy favorites from their September photography session!

Kinzie at Three! | Children & Family Portraits | Red Rock Canyon

We are absolutely honored to be telling the story of Kinzie’s life for this family! We first captured Kinzie’s newborn portraits and have since been invited to capture her milestones as she turned one, two, and now three. Kinzie is energetic, talkative, and adorable – even when she’s giving her parents the “gifts” that strong-willed, first born children bear. 🙂 Her bright personality shines through in every session we’ve photographed.

We photographed this session at Red Rock Canyon, and as the session was ending, Jon and this family were literally trying to outrun the storm that quickly rolled in. Thankfully, the session was already complete when the rains came, but as the saying goes, “When life brings you lemons…make lemonade!” As you can see, the rain puddles made for a playful, fun end to the session and the creation of some priceless portraits! Kinzie calls puddles “stompers” ’cause that’s exactly what kids love to do…stomp through those puddles!

We love the Betzs. Jonathan always takes good care to make Kinze laugh and has the expert eye to capture her in the cutest poses.
