J. Amado Photography
Denver Portraits & Wedding Photographer
Welcome! My name is Jermaine Amado (that's me up there!) and I'm an on-location portrait and wedding photographer in Denver Colorado. "On-location" means that we can have the session at an outdoor location of your choice or at your home. There are no additional charges unless you wanted more prints, more time, and if you live 40 miles outside of my 80210 zip code. But my packages are set up so that the time is perfect and you won't need additional prints from me. I am proud to offer all your images (digital negatives) on a CD/DVD, in full resolution and full rights with all my packages so you can print locally or online!
When scheduling an in-home portrait photography session, I bring my lighting equipment, backdrops, and stands to create a small studio at your home. This in convenient because you are able to change clothing, dirty diapers, refill bottles, or retouch your makeup in the comfort of your own home.
I have been a portrait photographer for 8 years and specialize in newborn photography, baby photography, senior pictures, family portraits, maternity photography, child photography, and business headshots. Through the years as an assistant and on my own, I have expanded my wedding photography portfolio and have been offering affordable wedding photography in Denver over the past 4 years.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
Many people ask me, "When is the best time to have a newborn photography session done?". Some Denver newborn photographers will do a newborn session anytime within the first 2 weeks. Having the session done within the first 2 weeks work most of the time, but I have found that the best time to have the newborn photo session is within the first week. During this time they love to sleep and the baby acne has not appeared yet. It's important that they sleep while we move them around and place them in cute little positions!
My B-stop, 1.5 hour, package is recommended for newborn photography because we will likely capture some new born photos with their eyes open and while they sleep. All my sessions take place at the comfort of your own home. It's especially helpfull for newborn photography sessions because it's the most comfortable place for a new family. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Maternity & Pregnancy Photographer
As a Denver maternity photographer I offer both in-home studio style maternity portraits and on-location maternity photography sessions. I offer a discount package when you schedule a maternity and newborn photography session.
The preferred time for a maternity photography session is usually towards the end of the pregnancy, around 8 months. We want a big belly for the photos! But we can always schedule the session at your preferred time. If you feel that there might be a chance for a premature birth, please let me know when you feel would be the best time for the session. 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 me.

The hardest part of family photography is getting everyone to agree on a time and place for the family photo. It's because of this, that most family portraits take place during the holiday season. As a professional on-location Denver portrait photographer, I am able to bring my equipment to the comfort of your home so you won't have to gather everyone and travel to a studio. But the great thing about photography in Denver is all the outdoor beauty that Denver Colorado has to offer.
Other Denver family photographers charge per person after the 4th or 5th family member. If you schedule a family portrait photography session with me, there are no additional charges for extra family members, as long as we complete our session within the time frame we agreed upon. If you have any questions about family portraits please feel free to contact me.

Senior Portrait Photographer
When searching for photographers for your senior pictures, it's important to consider the flexibility of the photographer when it comes to choosing a location for the senior portraits. Let the photographer know what location you had in mind and if they are willing to travel. High school senior photography in Denver offers amazing places for senior pictures, like an outdoor session by a lake, a river, at a ranch, or on the field or court of their favorite sport. Parents, communicate with your high schoool senior, I'm sure they have some thoughts about where to have their senior pictures done.
An important factor in choosing a photographer for senior pictures over the past couple of years, is if they offer you the digital images (negative) on a CD or DVD in full resolution and full rights. I believe it's important to offer the images with full rights so you and your high school senior could be able to upload the pictures to your favorite social websites or send them to friends and family.
If you have any questions concerning Denver senior pictures please feel free to contact me. Congratulations seniors!

I have been a baby photographer in the Denver metro area for 5 years now. Working as an in-home portrait photographer for a company in California, I gained amazing experience in baby photography. Every week I would have around 20 baby portrait sessions, for nearly 2 years. I met lots of babies! Although it may sound routine, every session was different. No two babies were alike. Every baby had their own laugh or smile, and it was great! I loved going to work then and I love it now!
If you missed newborn pictures of your baby, I suggest having their 1st baby portraits done between 6 weeks and 3 months. I feel this is a great time for thier first baby photos because they have full 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.

Maybe it's just a photographers point of view, but I feel that photography is the most important part of your wedding. When searching for Denver wedding photographers you need to shop around. Search for what's in your budget, a strong wedding photography portfolio, and if your wedding photographer offers what you are looking for. Are you looking to just have the CD with full rights and all your images in full resolution? Do you need prints with your package? Do you need an online viewing gallery for your friends and family?
It is important to figure out what you want out of the pictures, on the most important day of your life. Call photographers and ask questions. This is a very important decision because you cannot redo a wedding session.
There are several wedding photographers in Denver for you to choose from. Some offer more expensive packages than others and others have a better wedding photography portfolio. The choice is yours and I truly and honestly wish you the best. If you choose me I promise to care about your day and to care about your pictures.
Please feel free to contact J. Amado Photography to discuss photography on your wedding day!

The difference between child photography and baby photography is that we are no longer in control. Yes, children hold all the power. To me the difference between a child and a baby is that it's a little harder to put a smile on their face when they have made it very clear that they don't want to smile.
With a baby you can make some funny faces, or noises, feed them, or give them a toy and that will buy us a little more time. Children don't work that way anymore. So for child photography it's best that the photo session consist of activities and the least amount of "posing" possible so they could stay entertained. When scheduling a children's photography session, we should plan on a time when the children are happiest and I will try as hard as possible to bring a genuine smile to their faces. If you have any questions about please feel free to contact me.

I perform all headshot sessions at your office or location of your choice. This way I have my set-up there and your employees would not have to travel for their headshots.
