Denver Family Photography – New “Explainer” Video (TBT)

I just love videos for explaining concepts or doing product reviews. Here’s a quick explainer video for what it’s like to work with me:

Natascha Lee Studios 2016 Explainer Video from N Lee on Vimeo.

If you are looking for family portraits, that video gives you a super quick overview of me, the kind of photos I create, and my style.

Below are a few more key links that people like to have, when they are looking for a Denver family photographer and considering working with me.

Feel free to check them out. And, if you aren’t in the area looking for a Denver family photographer, ask your local photographer if they have similar links available for you to check out. In addition to pricing and their gallery, be sure to see a video or a sample of a full session – I always recommend seeing an entire session by your photographer. Because anyone can take one or two good photos, but you want a photographer that will deliver and entire gallery of great images for you to select from.

Not all photographers have a studio, but if they do have one, you’ll want to ask where it is and what it is like. Their studio is a great meeting place, you can see their product samples and it also provides a back up shooting location if your outdoor location gets rained/snowed out. (Although it can be very fun to shoot in the rain and snow!

Client Story: Isabelle in Broomfield – Family Photo Session with Dogs

Client Story: Isabelle in Broomfield – Family Photo Session with Dogs

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite photos from a Family Photo Session with Dogs last Fall – and this one included two adorable Shelties! As you’ll hear from Isabelle below, we have a tendency to procrastinate family photos. We really want them, but we keep pushing it back. Family photos are so precious. And, if you pick the right photographer, they will bring you so much joy! So, there is every reason to “just do it” now.

She also touches on one of the things many people are worried about – avoiding “fake smiles.” And, that’s one of my passions – to capture your family’s true emotions. That means real smiles! And, sessions with me are so FUN, natural and free-flowing, that we are sure to get some happy authentic images. You can click here to read what other families say about that.

Family Photo Session with Dogs in Broomfield or WestiminsterFamily Photo Session with Dogs

  1. Isabelle, tell us a little bit about your and your family:

I work in elder care. In my free time love learning new things. Right now I’m learning hand lettering. I paper craft and make handmade greeting cards. The whole family enjoys role playing and table top games as well as video games.

For quite a while now we have been working toward a vacation in New Zealand.

  1. What made you decide this was the time to do a photo session? Were you marking any special occasion, etc?

I have always wanted professional family photographs. We tend to procrastinate and the kids are growing so fast! It was time to just go ahead and do it.

  1. Tell us about your dogs, who were included in the session:

Fuzzy Dice and Freya are two year old Sheltie siblings. Freya is the little one. She is very reserved and behaves much like a cat. Dice is a playful dog who loves belly rubs.

  1.  Was there anything you were nervous or worried about before the session?

It’s tough to get a genuine smile from the boys during planned photos. I thought we would have only a handful of good finished shots because of that. Natascha did an amazing job and gave us plenty of great finished shots to choose from.

  1. What made you choose Natascha Lee Studios?

I searched the web for professional photographers near me and I was immediately drawn to the images on Natascha website. The locations she uses and her style were exactly what I was looking for.

  1. How did the actual photo session go? What was your favorite part of your session? Any funny stories?

Our session was great. Natascha had a clear plan and was flexible at the same time.  I loved how we moved from one location to the next, stopping to take advantage of a great interaction, light or place.

  1. How about the viewing session? – What did you think or feel when you saw your gallery of images?

The viewing session was just awesome. Natascha made a video of our images that blew me away. My husband Fred was with me and I think the results surpassed his expectations as well.

  1. What do you hope your children will say/feel/think years down the road when looking at these images?

I hope the boys feel the sense of connection we all have toward one another. I want them to feel the gratitude and delight I have when I see the images now.

  1. Any advice to other families before their photo sessions?

Trust in Natascha’s skill and talent.

  1. How did you feel/what did you think when received your final order/had your products delivered?

Receiving the order was awesome. I loved unwrapping each piece, framing and hanging them. I have a special photo of my teenage son that will go in the slideshow the school does of senior photos.

Some of the photos were meant for Christmas cards and gifts, but my husband posted them on FaceBook. So I already know that everyone loves them!

Thank you, Natascha!

As you probably have heard, “explainer” videos are all the rage. They are brief (30 sec – 2 minute) videos that give a quick overview of your company, service, etc.

Here is mine, hot off the presses. Well, the digital presses that is:

Modeling Headshots for Teen Models – Interview with Boulder High school Girl Sophia

Modeling Headshots for Teen Models – Interview with Boulder High school Girl Sophia

My clients are so interesting! Today, I’m featuring Sophia, a local Boulder high school student, a teen girl model and an all-around nice gal!

Sophia----Model-Headshot-Blog-Collage- Modeling Portfolio Headshots Boulder - Natascha Lee StudiosBoulder Model Portfolio & Headshots

Q: Tell us about yourself and your family.

My name is Sophia, I am 14 years old, and I like volleyball, French, and my amazing friends.

My mother Jennifer is from San Francisco, she loves to paint, and our family likes to travel and spend time together.

Q: What do you dream of doing?

I have never been to New York or LA,  but I would like to travel the world one day.

Q: What surprises people to learn about your mother?

It surprises people when they find out that my mom sings in a band and has a mobile spray tanning business.

Q: What made you interested in modeling?

I always try new things and thought this could be something new that I love doing.

Q. Why did you pick Natascha Lee Studios for your modeling headshots?

She was recommended by our agency, and the photos we saw on her website were amazing.

Q. Was there anything you were nervous or worried about before the session?

Not really; I was very confident about the session even though I had never done it before.

Q.  How did the actual photo session go?

I was happy when I got there that Natascha was so friendly yet very professional.

Q. Any advice to others before their modeling or headshot photo sessions?

If I did the photo session over again I would have changed two little things: 1) brought a powder base to cover any oily skin and 2) brought lots of layers or accessories to add variety to the photos (jacket, scarf, hat, etc.)

Q. How did you feel/what did you think when saw your final images? 

I loved them – They were beautiful and natural. Natascha did an excellent job.

Q.  Now our favorite question of all: If you could have any superpower, which one would it be and why?

If I could have any super power it would be to freeze time so that I can spend more time doing things I love doing and less on work.

Top Tips for Visiting the Boulder Farmer’s Market – Local Produce, Bright Vibrant Colors (and a fun thing to do with your kids during Summer)

Top Tips for Visiting the Boulder Farmer’s Market – Local Produce, Bright Vibrant Colors (and a fun thing to do with your kids during Summer)

Top Tips for Visiting the Boulder Farmer’s Market:  If you are looking for a fun Saturday morning with the kiddos, or looking to try some interesting new food, or looking for super healthy local food, or even just looking to take some fun, vibrant photos – the Boulder Farmer’s Market is the place to go! Here are the Top 7 Tips you’ll want to know before you go:

It’s open on Wed afternoon and Saturday morning. Saturday is a bit busier, with more vendors. (not really a tip, so I’m not counting that one).

Tip #1: The farmer are happy to talk about their fruit and veggies, mushrooms, honey, goat cheese, etc. They’ll tell you how they make or grow it, where it comes from, etc. It’s a great educational opportunity for your kids. Even if you “homestead” and grow many of your own veggies, the Boulder Farmer’s Market is sure to have plenty of new and unique natural foods.

Tip #2: If you like sampling, bring your appetite! Many vendors provide samples.

Tip #3: If you like dogs, you’ll be in heaven. The dogs can almost (almost) outnumber the people.

Tip #4: If you want to avoid crowds and/or have an easy time finding parking, come early – like 7:30 am for the 8am start time on Saturday morning. You can walk along Boulder Creek, etc. while you wait for everything to open.

Tip #5: The first time you go, walk the entire circuit and figure out which vendors you like the most. Then be sure to visit them right away on subsequent visits; the best vendors often sell out quickly, at least of their best items.

Tip #6: Bring cash and a reusable bag with wide, padded straps, or a little rolling grocery cart or use your child’s stroller if they are still in a stroller. Your food products will be heavy, and you’ll be walking a bit. The vendors do provide plastic bags, but those can get heavy and cut into your hands.

Tip #7: If you like bright, vibrant colors, be sure to bring your camera to take photos of the amazing produce.

And, then, when you are done taking photos, you can take your yummy local Boulder food home and have a feast!

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.
