Colorado Springs Senior - Portrait Photography - Tips for Guys

Colorado Springs High School Senior PhotographyHigh school senior sessions for guys are much different than a session for girls. Different doesn't have to mean difficult or awkward, it's just different. A lot of guys get their senior portraits done because "you have to" or "Mom is making me". Other reasons might be that you're not comfortable in front of the camera, you have acne, braces, you don't know how to pose, or you just don't want to. Good news! All of those things can be taken care of! It's all about your mindset.  Creating the Mindset for the Senior SessionLook at your high school senior photography as an opportunity to document your life right now. What ...

Colorado Springs Senior - Portrait Photography - Tips for Guys

Colorado Springs Senior PhotographyLet's keep talking about tips on what to wear for your senior session. You can read the first post here.A question I always get asked right away is "How many outfits should I bring?" That is a great question.

Colorado Springs Senior - Portrait Photography - Tips for Guys

Colorado Springs Senior PortraitsKelsey is a great example of a senior who felt nervous getting her senior portraits taken. You'd never know it by looking at her images. She looks amazing!But let's be honest for a minute, not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera and that's ok. So, what if you fall into that category?  Senior Portrait ConsultationWell, the first thing I do, for every senior portrait session is meet with the senior and their parent(s). Meeting together ahead of time gives us a chance to get to know each other a bit, plan out the session, talk about clothing and locations, discuss final products, etc. This also gives opportunity for the senior (or ...

Where do I start? Lots of questions come to mind, not least of which is - "WHAT DO I WEAR?!?"Aside from "how much is this going to cost", "what do I wear" is the most important question there is when it comes to your session. What to WearYour clothing can make or break your session.You need to wear clothes that are the best version of you; not what you lay around in while binge watching your favorite show.I love what Jace selected for her outfits. The clothing she chose not only reflected her personality, but it was ...

Colorado Springs Senior - Portrait Photography - Tips for Guys

Colorado Springs Engagement PhotographySometimes it's clear when doing an engagement session that the couple is truly in love. Not only can that be seen here,but it's also clear that neither Sam nor Josh hate getting their pictures taken.That made for a fabulous engagement session.We chose lake front in Milwaukee as well as the Third Ward.Having the contrast of a natural setting as well as urban areas gave them the variety they were looking for.I'm a sucker for stairways, back alleys and storefronts. I know here in Colorado Springs and Denver there are lots of options for that type of photography.   But what if you're not comfortable in front of the camera? No ...
