Spring Baby and Family Portraits for Denver Highlands Families | Natascha Lee Studios

Hello my Broomfield, Boulder and Denver families. Lots of sunshine today, great day to get outside for that bike ride.

(BTW, in you live North of Denver (like Broomfield, Westminster, Lafayette, Louisville, Northglenn) , check out my “Park Guide” for suggestions on fun new parks to visit with your kiddos.)

How long has it been since you got family portraits done? If it’s been more than a year, and esp. if it’s been more than two, you are due! Your kiddos change so much from year to year! Let’s capture your family’s unique personality and love for each other.

 Spring is a great time for Family Photography. The grass has greened up, the leaves are budding out, but there is still enough bare branches to provide a stunning contrast to you and your family. For a great example, see the video below.

This video below is a sample of “Premium” Family Portraits, which include some behind-the-scenes video as well as still portraiture. “Still” images (photographs) are beautiful, and it’s also fun to have video mixed in to give a richer, deeper experience and memory.

Denver Child, Tween and Teen Model Porfolio Headshots – by Natascha Lee Studios

Wow! What great weather in Denver today. Love the sunshine, and how the daffodils are peeking through. Yay Spring!

So, you already know that I am a local Denver photographer focusing on baby, children and family photography, as well as Headshots with Personality(sm).

Did you know I am also the official photographer for the children’s division of local modeling agency Wilhelmina-Denver?

It’s such a joy to photograph these child, tween and teen models! Each one has their own unique look and personality. And I do the same thing with their portraits that I do with all my baby/kid/family/headshot clients – I make sure their unique personalities shine through.

Just looking at these four images below, you can right away sense the different personality of each model.

Denver Newborn Portraits | Natascha Lee Studios

Isn’t this little newborn just precious? Her Mamma sent me this testimonial, and it is so sweet:

Professional, prepared, patient.  Natascha was all of these things and more.  As a new mom I appreciated the many choices she offered at our newborn session, without overwhelming us at the same time.  Natascha has that special touch in making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed.  Thank you for an exceptionally wonderful experience.

Swoon-worthy

Just a quick shout-out to my amazing, energetic, fabulous-with-kids, brilliant photo assistant Christina. She was priceless on Sat when we had 5 straight hours of marathon model sessions – most them outside in that cold Denver snow!

Added bonus of working with me? You just might run into insanely handsome and nice men (like Tasos) from your favorite reality TV show The Bachelor! Even I was swooning!

BTW,  if you need an outstanding DJ, this is how to reach him.

Have you ever considered having your fine family portraits made into a non-traditional size wall canvas? Here’s an example.

The tall, thin nature of the sizing really helps you focus on the most important aspect – the tender love between Mamma and baby.

Wow, that’s quite a bit of snow we got in Denver! Hope you got  to go out and play in it!

If you have Winter engagement portraits planned,  here’s another idea for what to wear.

How cool are those patterned leggings? Just imaging adding a leather jacket to the ladies outfit on the left and you are set for some Urban Couples Portraits.

Denver Gymnastics Girl Portraits – by Natascha Lee Studios

Is your daughter or son into gymnastics in Denver (or anywhere in the Metro Denver area)?  Are you looking for professional portraits that capture their unique personality?

If so, the portrait below is a great example of a gymnstast or dancer portrait, outside of the gymnastics studio.

Look how her beauty and confidence shine through!

Even if your kiddo is a bit shy or nervous, I am a pro at getting folks to feel comfortable.

Here’s what this gal’s mom had to say about our portrait session:

Meghan kept telling me how nice you are and how much she likes you. Thanks for making her experience so fun!

What to Wear (WTC) – Winter Fashion Guide for Family Portraits in Denver, Colorado

We have had unseasonably warm weather in Denver these last few days (love it!), but we know that snow is coming.

I met a fellow mom at the park yesterday, and she had just moved here from New England. She marveled at the weather and said it was so different from what she was accustomed to; I agreed that it’s wonderful, but I also warned her to NOT put away the snow clothes. It is not always like this, and that we will certainly have some snow coming several times until approximately Mother’s Day in May.

Speaking of Winter….do you have Winter family portraits scheduled, and are wondering what to wear? This may help you plan your outfit.

These colors photograph well against our muted colors of Winter here in Colorado. They also photograph well against the snow!

Denver Dancer: In My Client’s Words / Testimonial for Natascha Lee Studios

Oh My Gosh! I just opened my email to this *amazing* email from Rachel.

Rachel, thank you so much! You are such a beautiful person, inside and out, and a pretty amazing writer…Dang, now I want to model for this “Natascha.” ;-)

“I am nowhere near a model and was rather skeptical about how my strictly dancer experience would translate in front of the camera. However, the instant I walked into to Natascha Lee’s shoot, I felt more than just at ease, but truly beautiful. She made every effort to empower me, including blasting my favorite Beyonce records to ignite my inner diva. Hours passed in what felt like minutes and my skepticism turned into artistic fuel guided by the ever-creative Natascha. Through encouraging words and strategic direction, Natascha gave me one of the most fun and invigorating photoshoots I’d ever experienced. Feeling alive and dazzling would have been reward enough, but seeing the stunning pictures she produced was incredible. I will treasure these photos forever.”

Did you know that shy children often feel more comfortable if you give them something to hold during photos? It just has to be something that will look good in the photo! ;-)

About the Photographer – Natascha Lee Studios

Here’s my new “9 Things About Me” image, photo taken by the supremely talented Kellie Coughlin. We just hung out @ Union Station for a bit, taking images of each other. It’s a blast to have super talented photographer friends – otherwise, us photogs wouldn’t have many images of ourselves as we are almost always behind the camera. She was saying something hilarious and I just started laughing. I love the spontaneous expression here. Thanks Kellie!

Senior Portraits: Artistic & Unique Photography for Denver Highschool Seniors by Natascha Lee Studios

I just love it when clients send me notes about their experience working with me to create their unique portraits. Here is a super sweet one from Maddie that just made my day!

 “Natascha Lee was kind enough to let me have a part in helping her with a beautiful project this summer, her creativity and eye for finding beauty in the everyday is what makes her a fun and unique photographer – no boring and ordinary photos from her! I’d highly recommend Natascha not only for her skill but also for her fun and personable spirit that can make even those who are uneasy in front of the camera (meaning me) feel comfortable and natural.

Broomfield Children’s Photography – Viewing Session (By Broomfield Photography Natascha Lee Studios)

I’m so excited to share an image of a Broomfield portait client’s final art, hanging in their home.

Last last year, local Broomfield Mamma Jenny bid and won a photo session with me at a local charity auction.

About two weeks after a portrait session, I meet my clients in my North Denver studio to share their final portrait gallery in a lovely movie format, set to music. As you know from my studio tour, I’ve got comfty couches, beer, wine and soda, as well as a playroom if the kiddos come along. This Move Premier lets portrait clients see all their images in their full resolution glory, as well as allows me to assist them in selecting their favorite images for wall art, albums, and gifts for family members.

Jenny and I had set up the viewing appointment for 5:30pm on a weekday, not really thinking about rush hour traffic. We each encountered traffic getting there (note to self: no more appointments during evening rush hour), but we decided that some wine would take care of that…..I even had a really nice bottle of red ready. And then…TRAGIC! I couldn’t find the wine opener anywhere! Argghhh. At least we managed to open the sparkling cider for her girls. And I have since made sure we have two! wine openers in the studio kitchen.

With our non-wine drinks (tragic!), we settle into the couches and chairs and I start their Preview Movie. This super cool and fun Mamma started tearing up at the first image (which is normal – most Mammas  tear up when they are seeing portraits of their precious children.) But then her reaction was even better….. by the third image, she leaned forward with this look of..joy and disbelief.  It looked like she was in shock at how stunning her girls’ portraits were! I was smiling from ear to ear!

The adorable girls, well they loved being “movie stars” but I think their favorite was the playroom @ my studio with an Xbox, or perhaps it was the Martinellis apple cider they got to sip out of wine glasses.

After much discussion about which images to get for her wall collage, I helped her select her final portraits. And here, without further ado, is the iphone snapshot she sent me of the final wall. Isn’t it wonderful?
