Denver Model Shoot – Behind the Scenes

Denver Model Shoot – Behind the Scenes

Here’s a fun bts (behind-the-scenes) image from a Denver model shoot, taken by by fab assistant:

And here is what the final image looks like:

Sometimes, we walk past the most beautiful lighting just because it’s in the dark hallway, or it’s tucked back into a corner.  The light from that window, combined with the contrast of the big, heavy metal door behind, makes for a lovely image. Oh, yea, and the beautiful young Denver model and her pretty smile…that’s a big part of it, too. 😉

If your pre-teen or teen child is interested in modeling, here are some helpful links:

May the 4th Be With You (What a difference a year makes)

I’m missing my “May the 4th” pal this year. We seem to have viewing sessions around May 4th each year.

But just had to share what a difference a year makes. Here is her lovely Denver child model daughter, Presley in her tutus! We love tutus!

These photos were taking almost exactly a year apart. PS – For our last “1 year apart” image, click here.

I highly recommend annual photo sessions WITH your kids. It’s so fun to see how they grow from year to year.

As I tell all my client, friends, family (anyone who will listen, really) – investing in quality family portraits is one of the best choices you can make this year.

Long after the spontaneous Target or Costco shopping spree is spent (been there, done that), or the stylish purse, the on-trend shoes, the expertly applied streaky hair highlights (or purple hair tips) are gone, long after the fancy meals are eaten, the fine wine is drunk and forgotten, long after the pretty new couch looks worn and old – these images are what will last forever and bring you joy several generations.

Here is a recent BTS (behind the scenes) photo taken during a teen model photos session.  Mom is so cute and stylish! And she is holding the reflector for when her daughter turns around and faces the other way (not for this particular shot.)

This was a super fun session we did Sunday afternoon @ my studio.  Her daughter is into competitive cheer and is, as you can see, crazy flexible.  They brought tons of cute clothes and we had a blast picking our favorite 3 outfits for the modeling session.

If you are looking for a great gift to give your teenage daughter, give her a modeling photos session! Even if she doesn’t want to pursue modeling, it will be an amazing experience and she’ll have some fab photos to share on IG or Snapchat. Plus, you’ll have great photos that celebrate who she is today, in all her lovely teenage glory.

Many of my Denver child and teen modeling clients have not done this before, and I provide plenty of tips on how to prepare, what to bring, clothing advice, etc.

Most importantly, your teenage will feel on cloud 9 after the experience. B/c it’s always about the journey as well as the destination, right? So the actual session is a blast, and then you get photos that Wow you in the end. Win/win! 😉

BTW, this gal’s mom was super smart – she was close by, but she never made suggestions on what her daughter should do during the shoot. That’s a tip I share with parents – teenagers are their own person, and they would rather not have their parents directing them during the shoot. (That’s what I’m there for!)  Even when you are picking out clothes, bring some outfits that you like and some that they like. You’ll end up with a great mix of photos that you love, and also photos that reflect their true personality.

Denver Dance Kid Dynamo – Dancer and Modeling Portfolio Shots by Natascha Lee Studios

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Presley’s modeling portfolio images @ my studio just North of Downtown Denver. It’s a real honor to photograph these wonderful children’s modeling portfolio images, and I enjoy making sure each image celebrates not only their external beauty, but even more importantly that it highlights their unique personality and their internal beauty.  Quite a few of my clients are involved in dance, ice skating or gymnastics.

Presley is a dear, so full of external and internal beauty! She currently dances with Starstruck Academy of Dance. She was most recently in the ShowBiz Entertainment dance competition, where she won; 1st in her age division, solo “High Point Title” winner, as well as being named “Ms. ShowBiz”. Congrats Presley! She is also an incredible student, with straight “A’s” even though she dances 5 days a week.

What a little star!

BTS: A little BTS – Behind-The-Scenes story about her pose on the right. As background, I often actually get into the pose I want someone else do, as it’s the quickest way to convey the idea.  I was trying to show Presley how I wanted her to keep her shoulders back she got in the pose. So I grabbed my own foot and got into the pose to show her. Not knowing that I am a former ballet dancer myself, she was quite shocked and as I grabbed my foot and started moving above my head, right there in the middle of the sidewalk – she initially reached out to help me, like she was worried I was falling over.  Then, once I got into the pose (very briefly), she smiled and understood. Still, there was a moment there where she really didn’t know what the heck her crazy photographer was doing and was trying to be helpful. Such a sweetie!
