Broomfield Family Portraits – Behind the scenes with Natascha Lee Studios

Glorious fall is here in Broomfield, the busiest time for family portraits. And, IMHO the most beautiful.

I’ve been quite busy, sometimes even doing multiple sessions in one day. I LOVE it! Love meeting all these wonderful new families, love photographing families I have photographed in years past.

Since I mostly shoot outdoors, you never know what will happen.  This Broomfield family brought their very sweet but hyper dog. I love including pets in family portraits, because they are, after all, part of the family. However, it’s important to bring a handler for your pets, someone who is NOT actually in the portrait.

Since this was a “just the kids” shoot, Mom was the dog handler. And everything would have  been fine…except for this cat….

This spunky little black cat would NOT leave us alone. We were in a local open space in North Broomfield, and this black cat followed us everywhere! We kept trying to move to different areas, but it followed…. drove the poor dog crazy!

And then, the kitty also drove the Mommy crazy b/c her daughters desperately wanted to take the kitty home. (Honestly, we did try to catch it but it was too skittish to let us.)

With winter coming, I hope someone owns/feeds this skinny little young kitty.

Anyway, we decided to call her Halloween, since it’s so close to Halloween and the kitty is black.

Here is Halloween’s first professional portrait:

I’ve been an enthusiast lender on Kiva.org for a while.  (Click here to see the loans I’ve done.) I often do the loans along with my children, and they help me select which loans to fund.

It’s a thrill to know you are helping someone else, halfway around the world!

Here’s a great, short video to explain how Kiva works:

BTW, Kiva has Charity Navigator’s Highest Award.

If you do a loan on Kiva, or give a gift card – drop me a line and let me know!

 

 

Broomfield Family Photography – Red Rocks (by Natascha Lee Studios in Broomfield, Colorado)

Broomfield trees are turning colors, the weather getting colder, and the days are getting shorter.

Yay! Fall is here! Fall Family Portraits are the best!

And I’m having a blast photographing the most wonderful families.

This time of the year, we don’t have much time for posting sneak peeks, but I just had to share this one.

You know when your child makes you laugh so hard that you smile goes from ear to ear and your eyes shut with joy?

Yea – like that.  ;-)

Which do you prefer – Black and White or Color, and why? (Vote/comment on FB, if you like.)

I usually prefer color, esp for the majesty of Red Rocks.

But in this case, something about the black and white focuses our eyes on their wonderful expressions. And the mothers beautiful face in that joyous smile.

Of course, you already know about about her beauty from her image in my mermaid series:

Broomfield Family Photographer – Photos in the Rain!

I did a children’s portrait session tonight in the overcast, cold, rain, at a local Broomfield park.  It was a blast. One person over me holding an umbrella over me/my camera (I told them the top prioirty was to make sure my camera as covered, not me!)  and another person 5 feet away holding an umbrella over my off camera flash. I can’t share the images b/c they are for a not-for-profit that works with children, but I can say that I’m so happy to be able to share my talents this way.
And so I’ll share a photo of myself, taking a break during the shoot.

It’s fall in Broomfield, and the temperatures are getting a bit chilly!

I just came across this behind the scenes image from a newborn session. I love photographing newborns!

You’ll see that we are using natural light from that big window, and that Mamma is right there with her hands on baby Z!

I had so much fun @ my photo show last night.

Thank you to all my models, friends and clients (many of whom are both friends and clients) who helped me celebrate my

Dancers, Dreamers and Make Believers  Series last night.

Here are some snapshots (behind the scenes) of the event, I’m sharing them here for those who couldn’t make it:

 We used this fun little Fuji Camera to do Polaroids of some of the guests:

Here’s the business card table. Guests had fun looking for their own portraits on the back of my business cards:

There’s a video of my Mermaids Series playing in the Preview Room – that’s why it’s at standing room only.

Even the littlest guests had fun, thanks to lots of different  types of cookies! I photographed this sweet baby at 5 months old and he just keeps getting cuter!

And the kiddos boogied in the kid’s playroom. (Did I mention that my studio has a playroom for the kids?)

Westminster/Broomfield Senior Portraits – Unique Photography By Natascha Lee Studios

Summer is winding down in Westminster and Broomfield, and the kids are starting to go back to school.

I’m thrilled to share another beautiful Mermaid from my “Dancers, Dreamers and Make-Believers” Collection.

Doesn’t she have the most lovely smile?

Every girl (and her mother)  wants her senior portrait to be special and different, something that reflects their personality and celebrates their beauty.

How’s this for a unique Highschool Senior Portrait?

Because I’ve had several people ask me, the fabric came from JoAnne’s in Westminster.
