The Tuning Family | Colorado Springs Family Portraits

This was a very special portrait session for us as we have known the Tuning Family for years through church. They have huge hearts and deep faith. This portrait session celebrated the official additions to their family. We love that their wall portraits speak value to each of their kids and give them the security of their place in this world. The timing of their session was just before our world changed this year – with all that we have all been through in 2020, we know all of us have grown in appreciation for faith and family and for love in our homes.

Thank you, Tuning Family, for inviting us to capture these portraits for you and create lasting memories from this special season in the life of your family!

Jessica | Pine Creek High School | Class of 2021

Jessica loves animals, Jesus, and the USA. She is a “country girl” with strong interest in politics and making people think more deeply about important issues. Jessica also loves to travel and learn about new cultures. Jessica loves the water; you can find her boating and swimming as favorite water activities. She’s competed on Pine Creek’s varsity swim team since 9th grade.

As she looks ahead to her graduation and next steps, Jessica plans to enter a program to become a vet tech. She dreams of having a ranch with lots of livestock and animals and looks forward to becoming a mom and caring for both kids and the animals. We wish her the best with all these next steps toward her dreams!

Jessica matched well with our one-hour session with Cheyenne Cañon and Stratton Open Space creating the perfect settings for her senior portraits. We’re excited to share favorites from her senior photography session.

Cole | Pine Creek High School Senior Portraits | Class of 2021

Cole is a friendly senior who is dedicated to academics. He’s also athletic, and while in his past he played soccer, he is hoping to do track in the Spring. Cole plans to pursue aerospace engineering, and he might want to be an astronaut. He’s clearly a dedicated, hard worker and ready to apply his academic strengths at the collegiate level.

Cole chose our one-hour outdoor session with Garden of the Gods for his senior portraits. His family also added a mini session for family portraits just before his senior session. For all of the portraits, they wanted iconic scenes of Colorado Springs as this family plans to be moving next summer. We were honored to be entrusted with creating such important portraits to capture both the milestone of graduation for Cole as well as Colorado family portraits to remember their years here. 

Our best to this entire family with all the next chapters that will unfold for them in 2021!

Janna | Air Academy High School | Class of 2021

Janna’s family was great to see again after first meeting them when her older sister had her senior year! Our returning family’s loyalty is always our highest compliment.

Janna enjoys spending time with family and friends and loves hiking, movies, and bowling. She also loves her dog, Bentley. As a people-person, she’s planning on a career that would center around helping people. With both of her parents in healthcare, pursuing a career as a pediatrician currently tops her list.

She had a fall session with perfect timing for some vibrant fall colors. We’re excited to share our favorites from a great senior session!

The Nesbitt Family | Family Photography in the Golden Aspens

We loved seeing the Nesbitt Family again and capturing their current season in life! With young kids, they change quickly, so after first capturing family portraits in the baby & toddler stages in 2018, this recent session captures the early childhood years for their son and the start of kindergarten for their daughter.

Their vision was to have portraits in the golden aspens, and for that request, we go outside of our Colorado Springs area. We were thrilled to have timed the session well for the gorgeous fall colors – there’s never a guarantee for that timing, but with years of experience, we know how to do our best to make these requests fulfilled.

We’re excited to share favorites from a fun, fall session with this family. Jon brought out lots of personality with the kids and created gorgeous portraits for this family to love for all the years to come.
