The Frillman Family | Woodland Park, Colorado | Family Portraits | High School Senior Mini-Sessions

It was a true delight to get to know and photograph the Frillman Family. We share St. Louis ties, and not only that, attended the same church back in St. Louis! The Frillmans moved to Colorado Springs, and when they wanted both family and high school senior portraits, found out about us from a mutual friend in St. Louis. What a small world!

We always want to make sure that unique attention is given whenever we have sessions seeking to accomplish multiple areas of focus. We are always happy to schedule back-to-back sessions, so we photographed their oldest son’s senior portraits as a mini session that then flowed right into a wonderful family session. Our family sessions always create full family portraits as well as the different breakdowns within each family. Individual portraits of each of the kids were a priority for the Frillmans, and we love knowing that they are daily falling in love with these portraits and the canvas art hanging in their home.

Many families seek to have fall colors and aspen trees in the setting of the portraits, and these requests are best met with a session in the higher elevation of Woodland Park. We’re so glad we were able to time the fall colors, include Grandma in the experience, and capture the fun-loving personality and close connection enjoyed by this family. Our sincere congratulations to their senior on his accomplishments!

Tyler | Fountain-Fort Carson High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

Tyler is down-to-earth and easygoing. He’s been competing on baseball teams since the age of 5, and during high school, played the position of catcher. He would love to continue baseball into college.

His senior session last summer used the setting of Monument Valley Park. We loved the backgrounds provided by the park for featuring his love of baseball. It’s an area that’s full of mature trees, vibrant greens in the summer months, and the rustic baseball field.

Tyler, we wish you our sincere congratulations on your upcoming completion of high school and trust these senior portraits celebrate your accomplishments.

James | Castle View High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

James is an avid reader, loves spending time with people, and an accomplished swimmer. His best stroke is freestyle, and he’s competed on both the high school and club teams. This year, he was honored to be captain of the team.

James’ family came to us from Castle Rock. We love working with families from outside our Colorado Springs area; it’s always a treat to provide backdrops unique to our area that help that senior’s portraits look a little more unique from their peers’ photography (or a lot different when our families come from the Midwest, Texas, or East Coast!).

James chose Red Rock Canyon as the setting for his senior portraits. We’re excited to share favorites and celebrate his accomplishments in this feature. We know Senior Year is unfortunately looking much different from expectations for this class, so may this bring some joy and celebrate his accomplishments. Congratulations, James!

Finn | Branson School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

Finn’s family traveled to us from Branson, Colorado, for his senior photography. We love being a destination photographer for families traveling in from out of our area. Finn has a busy sports schedule, and our simple mini session worked best for his photography.

We love our mini sessions for families that love the simplicity without any sacrifice of quality. Jon worked hard to weave storytelling for Finn’s sports of football and basketball into his session.

We’re excited to share favorites from his session outside of Garden of the Gods and wish Finn our best as he finishes the last requirements for graduation. Congratulations on your accomplishments!

Ashlyn | Palmer High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2020

Ashlyn is a well-rounded high school senior who loves photography, hiking in the outdoors, and travel. She competed on the golf team during her years in high school.

Her photography session during late summer was in the setting of Cheyenne CaƱon, and we’re excited to share favorites from her portraits.

As Ashlyn finishes the last weeks of high school and looks beyond graduation, she’s planning to attend Grand Canyon University. She’s looking at studying business and hopes travel and photography fill much of her future too!
