Jennifer's headshots

[ Colorado Springs headshots ]

Behold the beautiful Jennifer, who needed headshots in support of a new foray into modeling. She's one of the most photogenic people I've ever met! She's actually a returning client -- three years ago Jennifer and her husband had me do maternity portraits when they were expecting their first child. Now this gorgeous girl is a mother of two, can you believe it?!?

Jennifer was signed with the Wilhemina agency when she was a teen. Lately she's decided to give it another go. With a face like this, I think she'll be a raging success!

Here's one of the maternity portraits I did of Jennifer in early 2006. Isn't she gorgeous?

[ Colorado Springs senior portrait photographer ]

Avery's parents are both teachers, and now she's a senior at the high school where her father works. She was a blast to work with -- throwing out the supermodel poses and the laser beam eyes! These were not retouched one iota. Her eyes really look like this and her skin just glows. Gorgeous girl! For her senior portraits, she asked for a field of flowers and some railroad tracks. We had one of those patented sunny Colorado afternoons going for us. It was just perfect for a senior portrait shoot.

Adam's senior portraits

[ Colorado Springs senior portraits ]

This is Adam, who looks like a linebacker but is actually planning on majoring in drama when he goes to college. What a cool kid! We did his seniors in various locations around downtown Colorado Springs, and he was just a natural in front of the camera. No self-consciousness at all -- he was very relaxed about the whole photo shoot, and it shows in the pictures!

Leslie & Brian

[ Denver wedding photographer ]

On July 25th I had the pleasure of second shooting Leslie and Brian's Denver Art Museum wedding with my good friend Charlotte Geary. What a stylish couple! All the portraits took place on the rooftop of a luxury highrise with a spectacular view of downtown Denver. Leslie was extremely chic, and so was their color palette: apple green and chocolate brown. The entire event was a stylish tour de force. I have always loved the Denver Art Museum, since my days as an art student back in college. What a treat to shoot such a fabulous wedding there!

The bridal bouquet was gorgeous!

Leslie was such a glamorpuss -- the camera loved her.

Leslie's grandparents. I think they're cute!

The ceremony took place under a willow arch adorned with orchids and crystals.

The light in that room was spectacular!
