To get the most out of your experience, we always recommend bringing your best friend. We love to have fun when taking senior pictures and sharing this memory with your closest friend can really add to the entire experience. A best friend can help keep you relaxed, laughing and it really shows in your smile. This is a once in a lifetime event. Make it special.
Let’s be honest, everybody who owns a camera thinks that they’re a photographer these days. It all comes down to how much you value your experience and the images which capture this moment in your life. It’s your SENIOR Year! Do you seriously want to trust this once in a lifetime experience in the hands of an amateur or friend who happens to own a nice camera? Our photography has been published over 100,000 times in magazines and publications in nearly every country around the world. Believe us when we say that the camera is the smallest and most insignificant factor when it comes to creating beautiful, vibrant images that you and your family will love and cherish for a lifetime.
Each Creative Senior Portraits Experience begins with a pre-session consultation, where we discuss your special day to ensure that the senior pictures capture your unique personality. This is all about YOU! We will talk about the things you feel passionate about and how we can best express who you are in your senior portraits. We’ll discuss how to select the best clothing, location options and give you tips that will help you to prepare for your senior portrait session so that it’s a fun, stress free experience.
We have spent countless hours searching for the best locations for creating senior pictures. Sometimes what makes the image all about you “is” the location. Tell us if there is a place that is special to you and we will scout it out before your senior portraits session to use as one of your locations.
We want to take the time to get to know you. No detail is too small when it comes to expressing who you are. You might be active in sports like football, mountain biking or skateboarding. Perhaps you are an artist yourself and love painting, drawing or sculpting. You could be a modern dancer or a ballerina. Maybe you love to just relax and read fantasy novels. We want to capture who you are at this moment in your life and showcase your unique personality in your senior portraits. If you are passionate about your car, playing the violin, hiking the trails, rock climbing or a million other things .. we want you to share it with us. Like we said before, This is all about YOU!
Have fun being a model for the day. This is more than just about creating beautiful senior portraits. This is about making memories. For the ladies, we strongly recommend having your hair and makeup professionally done before your senior pictures session. Not only will your senior portraits look even more amazing but this is your big day and you deserve to be pampered .. am I right?
We always tell our seniors, “Bring your closet”. If you’re going to be wearing six outfits, don’t just bring six outfits, bring a dozen, bring more .. bring your closet! You can tell us which outfits are your favorites and we can also help recommend which ones would be perfect for a certain background location. It’s always best to have lots of options.
One thing we recommend you NOT do is cut your hair leading up to your senior pictures. Getting it styled can be a great thing but a drastic haircut or style change can be a nightmare. Go with what you know and don’t experiment the day before your senior portraits .. it might not work out.
Once your ready, we will head out to create the best images you’ve ever seen of yourself in some of the most amazing portrait locations Colorado has to offer. We shoot on a much larger scale than most senior portraits photography studios. We capture senior pictures from the Great Sand Dunes to Rocky Mountain National Park. Our locations for senior portraits include Colorado Springs, Denver, Pueblo, Boulder, Castle Rock, Littleton, Lakewood, Woodland Park, Monument and all of the surrounding areas.
