Sydney: Denver Senior Portraits

Sometimes it feels like the older we get the faster the years seem to go by so looking back 6 years doesn’t REALLY feel like it was that long ago. Even when Heather contacted us about photographing her daughter Sydney’s senior pictures we didn’t quite realize just how much 6 years really can make a difference. When we photographed Heather + Don’s wedding back in 2010, Sydney was about 11. For their engagement session we included their families so we had a little more time to get to know everyone outside of the wedding. Obviously it’s been several years since that time so the kids would have changed, but for some reason in the back of our minds we were only expecting a “slightly” older Sydney. Had her mom not been there we would have completely missed recognizing her! Sydney is a senior this year at Regis Jesuit and we can’t believe how much she’s grown up. She looks so much like her mom now- beautiful! We met up with the two of them over Labor Day weekend near Union Station downtown. We haven’t spent much time photographing at urban locations the past few years so it was a fun change and the location was perfect for Sydney’s personality- a little “sassy” as her mom put it 😉 . While the school’s yearbook doesn’t allow for outside photographers for the student’s “official” senior portrait, they do give them a space to submit some of their own photos and I think we got plenty for Sydney to choose from! We could have photographed all evening with her- Sydney is not camera shy one bit and was up for anything. We had so much fun that afternoon and are excited to share some of our favorites. Here’s a sneak peek from our day- enjoy!

The Johnson Family: Littleton Family Portraits

Our session with the Johnson Family was back at the beginning of August but we waited just a bit to put them up on the blog as they had a small announcement they wanted to share with their family first…. They are expecting baby #3 next March! Come spring the twins Avery and Roman will have a little brother or sister. We’re so happy for Cydney and Kiel! So many changes in the past 5 years since we photographed their wedding at The Manor House. And since that location holds such special memories for them it was the perfect backdrop for their family session. The day started out a little rough particularly for Roman who just wasn’t into having his picture taken that day. Although he’s adorable even with his pouty face:-)The twins are just a little over a year and a half which can be a more difficult age for kids- particularly twins. Cydney and Kiel just took the whole thing in stride though- poking fun at the situation with their own fake crying moment we photographed so they could laugh at later. But the day wasn’t all tears and we got some cute smiles and laughs from both the twins before the day was done. They are cuties! Here’s our favorites from the day- enjoy!
