Riley – DSA head shots

Say hello to Riley.  I had the wonderful opportunity to work with him on Christmas eve.  He needed a head shot taken for his Denver School of the Arts audition.  Riley is a very talented actor and it was such a pleasure working with him!

My three favorite things about this session:

1.  Riley is such a mature child, but still loves to have fun!  He even did some silly faces for me so that I could play around with them in PhotoShop and make a collage.

2.  He didn’t want to do his monologue for me on photo day, but when him and his mom came back to pick up the photos, he did the entire thing for me – and it was perfect!  He has such an excellent memory!

3.  He dressed himself!  Don’t you just love the preppy/skater look he’s sporting?


Newest Addition!

Just last week I met with Phil from Colorado’s Perfect Wedding Guide.  I’m very excited about this opportunity to reach out to more brides in the Colorado area!  That’s the hardest thing about running your own business – meeting your potential client.  I can’t just sit back and assume I’m going to become greatly successful based simply upon my skills.  No, I have to get out there and network and advertise and yes, blog!  That reminds me, have you checked out the StudioSister Facebook page?  If not, click the link, add us and become a fan.

Hughes Family

My wonderful husband is my biggest fan and he works his butt of finding me new clients.  Love him!

My three favorite things about this session:

1.  Immediately upon entering the studio/house, these two boys darted off to the basement and found a chess board they started playing with.  It was even more funny to me when the older brother came upstairs complaining to his mom that the other brother wasn’t playing right.  Apparently neither of them know how to play chess in the first place!

2.  I really wish I could just bottle up the energy of children and save it for myself!  These little guys were non-stop movement!  Amazing how I got them sitting still, right?!

3.  This session gave me the opportunity to build a collage of the images and even print off a large print from my Canon.  I’m pretty excited by new products!

Senior Portraits

I had a great senior session with Shaylen and Travis in November.  It gave me the chance to use my vinyl white and photo black backgrounds to their full capabilities!  I love these simple backgrounds as they make the subject just pop!  They are also fun to use to create black and white images.

My three favorite things about this session:

1.  Both kids brought an excellent selection of clothing!  That allowed me to help them pick and choose what would look best on each backdrop.

2.  Props!  We used plenty of props during this session!  I love suitable and subject-appropriate props!

3.  Don’t they just look stunning?!  These kids are already very attractive, but they did an excellent job posing for me as well!
