Modeling Portfolio Images : Denver Teen Models

I just came across this image from a Denver teen model portfolio and headshot session last year and I had to share. Isn’t it great? This teen model is so lovely – and I love the dress she is wearing – it suits her so well!

BTW, you may wonder how photographers come across images from months (sometimes years) ago that we didn’t ever share. Or you may wonder why we didn’t share them back when we took them….Here is how…during busy seasons, we take photos, deliver images to the client, repeat, repeat. We are so focused on meeting our clients needs that sometimes we forget to share our favorite ones on our blogs/social media/etc.  I think that’s a great thing, because it means we are focused on meeting our clients’ needs. (Yay!) But it does mean that our blogs/IG feeds/FB pages/etc can get neglected. (Boo!)

Then something will happen that makes us think of a session we did – like we will talk to a client who is booking with us again, and we will think, “Oh! I really like the photos from that shoot, and I never did share them publicly.”  Or we do a shoot that reminds us of a previous shoot, and we’ll realize the same thing….”Oh! I never did post photos from that shoot.!” Or we just get a message from the client thanking us and letting us know how our images for their child model won a modeling competition. (Double yay!)

That happens to me quite a bit. And I know that social media is supposed to be all about the “now”, but a great image of a beautiful teen girl model from last year…well, that is timeless and still should be shared…even if the photographer (me) is months behind!

What it’s like to photograph newborn babies (a little laugh for today)

What it’s like to photograph newborn babies (a little laugh for today)

I’ve been busy with newborn baby portraits lately.  Oh, how I love photographing newborns, and meeting new families.

Those newborns are so sweet and they smell so good, but then I am reminded of something that someecards says best:

I shoot modeling portfolio images and headshots. Mostly for models, dancers,  gymnastics and executive/business people. I have done this for years, and I’m even the official “in-house” photographer for local modeling agency Wilhelmina. It’s great fun, shooting modeling portfolio images for kids from 6 months up to 17 years old.

This photo below is one of my favs from a recent portfolio session. This teen model had this great half smile, and I love love it! (I will typically shoot a full range of expressions for any type of headshot, modeling or portfolio session – serious, half smile,  big smile, and right out laughing.) The funny thing is that neither she nor her mother were aware of her great half smile  – I was the first one to capture/notice it. Here it is:

I started telling her how much I love her half smile, but she didn’t believe me. I asked her mother if she had noticed it, and she also hadn’t! That’s one of the great joys of working with a professional photographer; we always bring out something new or previously-unnoticed in my clients. Something that is totally “them”, but still new and fresh and fun.

So, since she didn’t believe or wasn’t aware of her great half smile, I had to show her the actual photo (above) on the back of my camera.

This is what she looked like just after I showed it to her. She and her mother were laughing at the new discovery.   (Yea, there was lots of laughing and fun @ our shoot. That’s pretty much how all my shoots go. I never know who has more fun – me or the people I photograph. )

Artistic Portraits for Teen Girl and Boy Models

I’ve had some great shoots lately, lots of super fun (and photogenic) teens. Loving the warm weather so that we can shoot outside and not worry about tight, tense shoulders from cold weather. (That’s actually the first place I see kids show the cold – their shoulders tense up and start moving towards their earlobes ;-).)

The nice weather also means we can get on the roof of my North Denver photo studio. It’s fun doing photography sessions on the roof because it gives us some wonderful and unique backgrounds for artistic portraits. Truly, how many people get a huge AC unit in the background, right?

Here are a couple recent model portfolio shoots, I love how these headshots turned out. Both these teenagers have such piercing, and expressive eyes. And they were super nice kids, too. I’ll def share some of their “smiley” images in the future.

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.

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!
