Frank (bulldog) and Piper (Yorkie terrier) were already clients of our studio when their family decided to add a new puppy (Charlie) to the family. As many families who have a new baby want to have professional pictures taken to highlight their new addition, this family wanted an updated family portrait with all 3 of their fur kids. They were a little uncertain about how the session would work with 3 dogs (at the same time), but they really wanted some new artwork for their living room that showcased the dogs together. We got to meet Charlie when he was around 12 weeks old and it was neat to see how well he already fit into the family with his big doggie brother and sister. This was a very fun photo shoot and we got lots of puppy loves and kisses! The finished pictures turned out simply beautiful and we were so happy to be able to continue to capture this family as they grew!

There are few things as beautiful as girl with her horse on a gorgeous afternoon in Colorado. The wildflowers were blooming and the light was golden. This horse property in Parker was the perfect location for an outdoor photo shoot and all the conditions were simply perfect. It also helps when you have a stunning model! Mark photographed multiple horses and various family members during this family portrait session and they ended up with so many wonderful images! They loved their pictures so much that they chose to display 18 canvases as collage to cover an entire wall in their living room. Their artwork displayed this way is simply stunning and they get to enjoy their images every single day.
After trying out many samples of paint for the new studio, we finally settled on a sunny, cheery yellow. Yellow makes us smile and we hope that you'll also crack a smile when you come see our studio in person. We can't wait to start booking appointments in our new space. But in the meantime, you can still come in for a session at our current downtown Denver location.
It's always fun to look back at our favorite family photography sessions! This session was an especially fun and memorable session with these two characters. There aren't too many photographers who get excited about photographing a 2.5 year old and a boxer (who was just a big kid at heart) at the same time, but sessions like this are some of Mark's favorites. There was lot of laughter, funny faces, giggles, and face licks. Mark captured this special bond shared between a boy and his dog and the family was beyond happy with the images he created for them. This picture is one of the 3 canvasses they chose from this session to hang together as a photo collage over the couch in the family room. You can't help but smile when you look at this picture and that is exactly Mark's goal for sessions like this.
The new photography studio continues to take shape and we now get to start picking out some of the fun things. First up is the exterior paint color! Thankfully we can get small sample pots of the various paint colors before committing to a color choice. We've involved the whole family in the studio construction project and our little helper has especially enjoyed testing the various paints, as you can see by the small paint hand prints.
The new studio is really starting to take shape now! We had some beautiful weather in Denver this week and the roof was able to be added. It's starting to look like a real building! The studio also feels really tall now, but that's because since it is a photography studio it was designed to have very high ceilings inside for optimal light and working conditions. We can't wait for the studio to be complete so that we can start using it for our clients!
We may not have a roof on the new photography studio yet, but it was a beautiful Colorado February day and we couldn't wait to try out the new space. Our handy photo assistant was excited to try out the new studio and be the model for the day.
The new studio is taking shape and we now have walls! Now that the walls are up it's easier to envision how the space will look and we can start planning the fun things like paint colors, flooring and furniture.
If you live in the DTC or Greenwood Village area of Denver, then you are in for a tasty surprise! One of our favorite local ice cream shops, Glacier, just opened a new location at the corner of Belleview and Yosemite. If you aren't familiar with Glacier, they offer hand made ice cream, gelato, and other yummy treats (including homemade waffle cones).
If you like their ice cream as much as our family, then be sure to pick up a punch card so that you can start working towards your free ice cream!
