Miss Colorado USA: Blair Griffith

Our time working with Her Life Magazine couldn’t have ended on a better note than our shoot for their November Cover. We had the opportunity to meet and photograph not only the very beautiful but also extremely sweet Miss Colorado USA Blair Griffith. Our photo shoot was a couple months before she relinquished her crown to the next year’s pageant winner and needless to say it was pretty cool to work with her. Blair was one of the sweetest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! She’s just such a genuine person and her personality shines through her smile in every picture. We chose to meet up at Cherry Creek North for the photos. Unfortunately the weather was not really our friend that day but if it hadn’t been for the wind and rain we wouldn’t have found such a cool location indoors to take a few of the pics. We were photographing around the JW Marriott Cherry Creek when the weather turned on us and the awesome staff at Second Home Kitchen & Bar inside the hotel was kind enough to allow us to use their place for some really awesome pictures with a backdrop against a wall that changed colors. This shoot was definitely one of the highlights working with Her Life Magazine and while it was a bit sad to say goodbye to the magazine we felt the opportunity had run it’s course and we’re ready for other things. Blair thank you so much for your time and willingness to work with us!

Erica Cobb: Her Life Magazine August Cover Girl

A few months back we had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful Erica Cobb from Denver’s own Alice 105.9 morning show with BJ, Howie, & Erica. Not only is Erica beautiful but she was so easy to work with and is just as nice as can be- Michelle and I had a great time getting to meet her that day! We met Erica at her place in Denver for the shoot and right away knew it was going to be the perfect location. The building has so many great features including an awesome waterfall along a wall out on the terrace that we could have photographed in front of all day. Since Erica competes in fitness competitions and is in great shape we knew we also wanted to include a few photos of her in the gym and fortunately we had the room all to ourselves to snap a few photos of her “working out”. I don’t think you could possibly take a bad photo of Erica and we had a tough decision choosing which ones we wanted to end up in the August issue for Her Life Magazine. Here’s a few images that made it to print and a few additional favorites that didn’t. Also, click the link below to check out the video that Mike “Moose” Ahlstrand with Alice 105.9 took of Erica during our shoot including a small segment with yours truly acting like a dork 🙂 PS. Erica will be answering love and relationship questions each month in Her Life Magazine’s “Ask Erica” section so send in your questions to the magazine if you’ve got ’em.

Denver Fashion Photographers: Sassy Sisters Clothing

After staying indoors for the last couple of issues of Her Life Magazine’s Trendsetter we decided it was about time to enjoy the Colorado summer and head outside for the July fashion spread. We decided to be really relaxed with this particular shoot and chose an area not too far away from our house that we hadn’t been to for years with trees and tall grasses. Since it was still May when we shot these pictures we were fortunate to avoid the mosquitos as things had just finished greening up. Heather & Tiffany were absolutely perfect for this shoot! We had a great time with both of them- and of course with our very favorite Advertising Rep over at Her Life, Ronnie 🙂 We had a difficult time narrowing down our favorites from this shoot but here’s just a few we ended up with from our day.

Suuthe: Her Life Magazine July Cover

The July Issue of Her Life Magazine featured Mari Carlin Dart, the owner of an all natural skin care line called Suuthe. Mari developed Suuthe initially not as something she intended to sell but rather to treat her son’s eczema when he was a baby. She had tried so many different things and nothing seemed to work so began mixing up her own blends of natural ingredients that seemed to work to some degree separately but were amazing when put together. Being “hippie-types” ourselves when it comes to what we consume and use on our skin, we were really excited to meet Mari and hear more about the great product line she carries. She and her business partner as well as her family were an absolute joy to work with! They couldn’t be a nicer group of people and we had such a fun time working and talking with all of them. The weather finally held the day of the shoot after a few times of rescheduling due to crazy Colorado storms. We got some great images outside their home as well as the neighbor’s garden who was kind enough to allow us to use their yard for a few shots. Make sure to read more about Mari and Suuthe in the July issue online and of course try some of their products- Michelle and I LOVE them!! 

Denver Roller Dolls: May Cover Shoot for Her Life Magazine

Back in March we had the chance to meet and photograph Heather “Bijou” Angeli with the Denver Roller Dolls for the May cover of Her Life Magazine. Bijou is a member of Bruising Altitude and the Shotgun Betties. We had the chance to see her in action at a bout shortly after our photo shoot and can these girls kick butt! Not sure how long I’d last in the rink with this group of ladies. If you’re looking for a fun date night or family evening in the Denver area definitely check them out- we had a great time! As for our photo shoot, we figured what better location than somewhere urban like downtown Denver. A big thank you to Scarlet Salon who couldn’t have done a better job with Bijou’s hair & makeup- loved the purple! Bijou was an absolute pleasure to work with and was so easy going in front of the camera which made it a bit difficult to narrow down our favorite shots for the magazine. The issue will be up online at www.herlifemagazine.com/denver a few more days before the June issue is released so make sure to read her inspirational story. Having been diagnosed with MS just about a year ago, she doesn’t let it get in the way of life and uses skating as a platform to reach others touched by this disease. Thank you Bijou for the fun afternoon and hope to make it to another bout someday soon!

Kathy Sabine: Her Life Magazine Cover April

Back in February we had the pleasure of meeting the one and only Kathy Sabine! While I’m sure I don’t need to mention she is one of Denver’s favorite news personalities (and meteorologists) and works for 9News I did want to say that she is just as nice as you could imagine! It was so great meeting her and her family and getting the opportunity to photograph them for the April issue of Her Life Magazine. Since most of us know the tv side to Kathy Sabine we decided to focus on her family life- as a wife, a mother and lover of horses. The shoot took place in their home and property just a little out of town away from the city chaos. They have a beautiful home and we couldn’t have asked for a better day in February… although a little less wind might have been nice 🙂 If you haven’t had the chance to see the issue in print I’d highly recommend checking out the issue online to view her story which will be available for the next couple weeks at www.herlifemagazine.com/denver. Here are just a few favorites from our shoot that day- enjoy!

Her Life Magazine: Elise Wiggins

For the March cover of Her Life Magazine we had the opportunity to meet and photograph Elise Wiggins- Executive Chef of Panzano. Elise could not have been easier to work with! She’s so down to earth and so easy going it made the day such a blast. We first met up with Elise at her home to photograph her in her new dream kitchen. She had so many great ideas and wasn’t afraid to have fun- even got a shot of her “hugging/presenting” her oven and range- it was awesome! After spending a little time at her home we headed to Panzano for a few additional photos in the restaurant. My stomach was growling just being in there- the food looked WAY too good! If you haven’t tried Panzano yet you NEED to try this restaurant out. Everything from the atmosphere to the food- and of course their awesome Executive Chef, makes this place IT. You don’t get named among the top 5 restaurants in Denver for nothing (not to mention Elise has also been named Colorado Chef of the Year in the past). The march issue of Her Life Magazine featuring Elise is now online for the month of march at http://www.herlifemagazine.com/denver so make sure to check it out to read more about this wonderful woman! Here’s some of our favorite images from the day that you can see in the magazine as well as a couple additional favorites.
