When is the best time to have a newborn photography session done? Having the newborn photo session done within the first two weeks is ideal because they still have that "newborn look" and they love to eat and sleep! The younger your baby, the better our chances are of capturing a sleepy baby. We like to aim before the two-week mark, but we understand that might not work for some families. Contact us and let us know when you feel would be best time for our session.

Our B-stop, 1.5 hour, package is recommended for newborn photography. The photo session will definitely (maybe) run a little longer because they might need a little extra love and attention (don't worry, no additional charges). All our newborn sessions take place at the comfort of your own home since it's the most comfortable place for a new family. There are many Denver newborn photographers and we appreciate you considering us to capture this moment. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Maternity & Pregnancy Photographer

As Denver maternity photographers we offer both in-home style maternity portraits and on-location maternity photography sessions. The preferred time for maternity portraits is up to you. We want a big belly for the photos, but also want you to feel comfortable. 7-8 months is typical but we have done maternity session before that time frame and even at the last week of pregnancy!

There are many Denver maternity photographers and it's important to choose the right photographer to document this beautiful experience. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us. Let us know your due date and your thoughts on the location and ideas you might have. There is a discount package available when you schedule a maternity and newborn photography session.

Senior Portrait Photographer

Congratulations class of 2018! It's your last year and it's your time in the spotlight! Let's document this milestone with a photography experience tailored to you!

The backdrop for your senior pictures should be YOU. Most of our photo sessions are done on-location. Pick a spot that best represents you. Let us know what you have in mind and if you need suggestions. Downtown offers a great urban feel to the pictures and plenty of unique backdrops. If you want a park or natural setting (mountains, rivers, lakes), the Denver metro offers so many beautiful parks where we can have your senior portraits done. We are also open to suggestions!

As senior portrait photographers we like to combine lifestyle and traditional portrait photography for your senior photos. Style is key! Bring a couple options for outfits. Different layers and accessories are great as well (i.e. jacket, scarf, vest, or hat). Clothing is a form of expression and in order to capture YOU, you need to feel great and pick the clothes that represent who you are. If you have props for music, a hobby, or sport you play bring those along as well.

Baby Photographer

Being a baby photographer has to be one of the best jobs in the world. There is always so much joy and love around these little humans. Their smiles are unforced and so genuine!

We can schedule a photo-shoot for your baby along with some family portraits at any age. Keep in mind the stages (laying down, sitting up, crawling, etc.) or the milestones (6 months, first tooth, etc.) that you want to capture with this photography session.

If you missed newborn pictures of your baby, I suggest having portraits done after 6 weeks. At this point, for their first baby photos, they should have pretty good control of their head and they start to smile a little more :) Please feel to contact me with any questions or if you wish to schedule a baby photography session.

Children's Photographer

The difference between child photography and baby photography is that we are no longer in control. Children have gained full control of their mobility and they're always on the go! They have the attention span of a 2 year old!! :)

For child photography it's best that the photo session consist of activities and the least amount of "posing" as possible. When scheduling a children's photography session, we should plan on a time when the children are happiest. If you have any questions about please feel free to contact us.

business headshots Denver

Denver Headshots

Corporate & Executive Headshots

We offer professional business headshots for executives, small business owners, or for your corporate office. Our headshots also apply to actors, musicians, and bands. When scheduling an appointment for headshots we will discuss what backdrop color or location would work best. We perform most photo shoots on-location. This way you and/or your employees would not have the need to travel. If you need a studio, we partner with a local studio for a small fee.

If you would like to have the headshots done at a different location let us know what you have in mind. We can also provide you with suggestions depending on the look and feel you wanted to capture for your headshots.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions concerning headshots photography. We have worked with companies in Colorado like: Turner Construction, Genesis Fitness, Frito-Lay Denver, Swiftpage, Mac Gray, and other companies for their employee headshots. We are also available for corporate parties and events.
