Molly| ECA High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

Molly is a high school senior who’s described as loyal, intelligent, compassionate, and fun-loving. She’s active in youth group at Woodmen Valley Chapel, and WVC is our church home too. She’s excited to have been able to take her faith internationally on mission trips with the youth group.

In school at ECA, Molly is active in theater and choir and loves to read. In the community, she volunteers with serving kids both in the church nursery and as a volunteer with the Pikes Peak Library District.

As she completes high school and looks ahead to her future, Molly plans on pursuing an English degree as the first step in a career as a librarian for children’s literature.

Molly chose to combine our one-hour Senior Session with a mini-session in order to have a small number of outdoor, natural setting portraits alongside the main location of Woodmen Valley Chapel’s 1979 Coffee House. It was a perfect combination for her, and we’re excited to share favorites with you!

Anna | Air Academy High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2019

We have truly enjoyed getting to know Anna and her family throughout their experience with us for senior photography.

Anna is an intelligent and compassionate high school senior who adores animals and has a self-described “zoo” in the home – they care for everything from reptiles to kittens! Anna also plays guitar, is fluent in American Sign Language, loves vintage items and styles, and is a member of National Honor Society.

With her love for animals, Anna has her sights set on a career in veterinary medicine and has been excited for the college coursework in zoo-keeping she’s been studying during this last year of high school. She has the perfect heart and passion for these pursuits!

Anna matched best with our most-popular Senior Session, and Red Rock Canyon was a perfect setting for her senior pictures. As we mentioned already, Anna loves animals. Wolves are her absolute favorite. To everyone’s amazement, as her photography session was ending, an owner of wolves arrived and acquiesced to Jon’s request to have an opportunity to photograph Anna with the wolves. It was an awesome, serendipitous ending to an already fun and beautiful session.

Angela + Collin | Wedding Portraits | 09.09.18

We had an amazing time with Angela and Collin on their wedding day. This was such a special celebration of families and friends coming together to be part of this marriage. We loved the ways Angela and Collin included and honored each of their children throughout the day. Their day was filled with unique, personal touches, and it was obvious how esteemed and loved they are by their friends and family.

The ceremony and reception took place at Phantom Canyon Brewery in downtown Colorado Springs, and we loved the opportunity to take the wedding party around the nearby urban and park areas for those portraits. Following the reception, we had the best time photographing urban portraits of these two newlyweds on a photography walk through downtown, ending at The Mining Exchange where they enjoyed their first night married. Wedding day timelines do not always prioritize photography the way these two did, and the time they built into the day for this created truly special portraits and fun memories to cherish.

When we think back to their wedding day, we remember huge smiles, abundant laughter, authentic tears of thankfulness for this relationship, and two people who seem perfect for each other.

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

We’ve loved reconnecting with this family for another session! We truly appreciate the loyalty we see in families returning and continuing to entrust their professional photography to us.

Austin excels academically and is looking to pursue a career in aerospace engineering. When not focused on his studies, you can find Austin enjoying time on computers or playing video games. He also competes on the tennis team. Additionally, he enjoys playing acoustic guitar.

For his senior photography session, Austin loved a more urban session in Manitou Springs. We encourage our high school seniors to feature their various areas of interests and skills during their session, and Austin brought his guitar and tennis items to have those storytelling portraits created as part of his photography.

Enjoy these last months of high school, Austin, and we are excited to see where your next steps take you!
