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. 😉

Highlands Ranch Teen Girl – Dancer Portraits Video

Here’s a video from a lovely concept portrait session with tween Caroline from Highlands Ranch. She is an athlete, but more of a swimmer than a dancer.  We still chose to do a dance-themed custom portrait session and had so much fun with the tutus. She loved dressing up! And her mother LOVES these photos.

Parents often have professional photos done of babies, young children, and  Highschool Seniors.  But how about a custom photo session for your Tween or Teen? Something that celebrates who they are right now.

That’s what we did for Caroline, 11 years old. And here is what she and her mother Kristin had to say about the experience (Caroline) and the resulting portraits (Kristin):

“Miss Natascha was so cool. When I worked with her she made me feel pretty. The photoshoot made me feel confident and more brave.”

Caroline, 11 years old in Littleton, Colorado

“Capturing the essence of a child’s personality is a special skill. Natascha’s photography does that but more: she photographs in a truly artistic way. She involves the natural and man-made elements in her surroundings so that every shot is unique. You don’t look at one of her photographs the same way twice.”

Kristin Lamendola, Littleton, Colorado

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 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!

Fall, Winter and Spring Session Videos | Broomfield, Colorado Baby, Children and Family Portraits

Another hot beautiful summer day in Broomfield, Colorado. While I do almost exclusively fun, fresh and fabulous outdoor portraits for newborns, infants, children, and families, I find that hot days mean we need to start even earlier or shoot later. Speaking of later, did you see the amazing sunset in Broomfield tonight? The wind kicked up dust into the air and that’s what gave us such magnificent colors. I captured many photos of the stunning sky.

If you haven’t checked out my session videos, click here to see them all.

I just added the Spring Video. Yes, I’m that far behind in posting sessions. And now it’s the middle of Summer. Perhaps I’ll have the Summer Video up in time for Fall. 😉


Kind Words from Wonderful Clients | Client Testimonial Westminster Family Photography by Natascha Lee Studios

Thank you so much to Elizabeth for her kind words regarding the STUNNING images from her family photography session. I so enjoyed creating custom portraits of her beautiful, smart and sassy daughter. We did these as part of my Westminster Summer Flower Series:

Natascha is a wonderful photographer!  She was able to bring out a true smile to my daughters face which is very hard to do with a tween.  I am so tired of my child’s pictures not coming out well at school or a photo center at the mall and just wasting money.  Natascha’s photo shoot was fun!  I can not wait to share these lovely photos with my friends & family.  Thank you again Natascha.
