Denver Children’s Portraits

Denver Children’s Portraits

Just a quick posting today. As we leave behind the warm summer weather, and head into autumn, I am already missing summer.

So, just have to share one of my favorite Denver Children’s Portrait sessions, shot during summer:

#TBT to a couple cute Denver kids I shot for their first modeling portfolio. Shooting this age is never easy, and you want a photographer who is super familiar with kids and the way to shoot them for modeling – stylish, variety, but capture their unique personality. Basically, their internal and external cuteness!

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

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.

BTW, to ready more about Presley, her mother, their journey in the modeling world, and what a child model headshot session is like with me, click here.

Ever wonder what a Denver highschool senior portrait session looks like? Here is a video from a Premier Highschool Senior Session – two locations, 5 outfit changes, 30 amazing images:

And here is a collage with their favorite images. I’m really enjoying the dual nature of sharing both video and photos:

These images were done at one of my satellite studio locations in Downtown Denver, and also at the very beautiful and always fun Washington Park.

Bella brought a variety of clothes, and did her own hair and make up. Her mother came for the session, but stayed out of the way so that her daughter would be super relaxed and comfortable. This is one of those families that I love to shoot for year after year.

A few days ago I shared 6 ideas for how to display your Denver family portraits. I just have to share this one more idea:

Idea for displaying Denver Child Model Portfolio Images

I have photographed this stylish child model two years in a row, so you are seeing photos from two different shoots, 1 year apart. I also did Headshots with Personality for her father.

I love how her super coolmom put together this wall collage of the portraits I made and art that her 3 yo daughter made! A perfect combo to celebrate her! Note how it looks great now, but also has room to add wall portraits from future shoots (like an all-family shoot). Thank you to my client for sending this iphone photo of their display wall.

Here is one of the photos up close, so you can get a good feel of the individual photos:

6 ideas for Wall Collections / Canvas Cluster Family Portraits

6 ideas for Wall Collections / Canvas Cluster Family Portraits

One of the hottest products right now are Wall Collections / Canvas Clusters for your Family Portraits. If you are wondering what that would look like, well you pick your favorite images, and then match them to a particular arrangement that fits your home and your space…and your personality!

Here are 3 different ideas for your Wall Collections/ Canvas Cluster Layouts.

#1:   Lots of wall space and you like things uniform:

Here is one example. It uses (8) 12 x 18″ canvas prints, and with a 1 inch gap, that’s a total wall space of 63″ x 31″. This one would work great if you have a good mix of horizontal and veritcal images you like. And, if you are someone who likes things all balanced and square. Well, technically “rectangle” in this case. This display has major WOW factor!

2. Lots of space, but you like things a bit more creative.

In this canvas cluster, there is more variety in each image’s size and the overall layout. This client has their images hanging in their beautifully-lit large foyer, so everyone who enters their home sees it first thing:

#3 – Simple, modern and elegant.

Those terms fit this client perfectly. She has a bright, modern house she designed herself. She picked her favorite images, had large canvases made, and they lean on a ledge in her stairway.

#5 – Over the mantle A

This is a great example of how to hang a wall display/cluster over a mantle. It’s balanced left to right, but has some added visual interest due to the different sizes and shapes. I don’t know if you can tell, but she even put the small squares are just a bit outside of the tall solo images of each girl. That gives it a certain “tension” that adds to the overall visual interest.

#5 – Over the mantle B (Plus, insight into how we design something you will love, and that will fit your space.)

I help my clients design their wall collections to fit both their personality, their space, and also their favorite images. It’s a blast, and my favorite part is to see them after they have been hung up in their home.

Here is what it looks like when client come in for their viewing session (held 2 weeks after their photo session), and I show them samples of their images in different arrangements. Sometimes the background is photos of their own home, and sometimes we use digital rooms to gets a sense of size and place:

#6 – Above a king bed, with a high ceiling

This client wanted to create a collage on a large wall in the master bedroom of their Fraser condo. You can see how the “mock-up” looked in a digital room, and then how the final product looked in their ski home.

A special thanks to my clients who send me photos of their display after it goes up. (In the image first mantle photo, you can see her hammer is even still in the photo! 😉   It makes me sooo happy to see my art of your family up in your home. And, a suggestion to anyone who hires a professional photographer: send them a photo of their pieces up in your wall, or of your family gathered around the album. It will really make their day!
