Denver Teen Spring Photos

Loved my spring photo session with Cara in Denver.  We found a random blooming tree and had a blast shooting there.  You don't need a big park or much of a location, this spot was actually pretty ugly, next to a street and retail building, there were broken pieces of concrete on the ground.  But this tree hadn't been pruned and the branches hung low and were covered in gorgeous pink cherry blossoms (don't send me hate mail if I've misidentified the variety of tree, I'm a photographer not a botanist - smiley face.)  One thing about most teen girls is that they don't ask too many questions.  Cara wasn't worried that the spot was potentially ugly, she just trusted my eye and went along for the ride.

I think it's really neat when a girl shows up for her senior portrait session and is full of confidence, brought a suitcase full of outfits, and a mom to be her sherpa.  It feels good to work with a young woman who knows herself, is willing to try new things, play model, and love every minute of her time in front of the camera.  Janae Brown a high school senior at Denver's East High just made my day.  She and her mom were so much fun to work with.  The Denver Botanic Gardens is always a magical place to shoot senior photos, there are so many different scenarios - you can be in fifteen different worlds within the acrage of the DBG. I hope to shoot a lot of East Senior Photos this year at the Denver Botanic Gardens.  

East High School Senior Pictures - Jasmine Lucero

East High School Senior Pictures featuring Jasmine Lucero.  I've known Jasmine since she was in about fourth grade when her mother was my son's kindergarten teacher.  Jasmine was kind enough to wear this vintage prom dress I found probably 10 years ago.  It is tiny, almost didn't fit Jasmine who wears size 0.  She was a trooper and wore it anyhow and pranced around for me in full supermodel mode.  Jasmine is such a smart girl and very fun to work with.   I was impressed with her kindness to her mom and sister and her willingness to try whatever I wanted.  She was a great sport.  Have a wonderful senior year Jasmine.
