Hanako: Fall Model + Headshot Session

Our blog has been quite for too long so we’re excited to finally post a session that is long overdue! We had a crazy hectic year last year with moving, moving, moving, and moving again so took a much needed break for a few months to settle into our new house and have been working on some things we are excited to unveil later this year. Hopefully everyone has had a great start to the new year! We’re definitely looking forward to this year with some awesome clients. This post goes all the way back to November. Hanako is a friend and one of our very favorite clients who we’ve had the opportunity to work with on numerous occasions beginning back in 2007. She’s starting up her modeling portfolio again after several years on hold and we were more than happy to help her do that. Heathyrre Kautz came along to provide makeup for the session and did a beautiful job! We were so glad we got to work with her again and highly recommend her (she also does wedding makeup so make sure to check out her site if you are in need of a makeup artist for your wedding). Our session ended up covering two days as we got rained out part way through the first day but the second time around was beautiful weather. We started at the South Platte Reservoir and then headed to Downtown Littleton for some night photos. I love the pictures we got especially of her laughing (that’s Hanako to a T) and of course had an awesome time- it’s impossible not to with Hanako!! Here’s a sneak peek from our shoot.

Joann Model Portraits: Denver Junkyard

In some places of the country abandoned buildings and salvage yards may be in plenty of supply but for some reason Denver apparently isn’t a fan of leaving things unkept. Off the top of my head I can think of less than a handful of abandoned buildings in the area and when it comes to utilizing them for photography well I’m not sure if I could even name one that would be possible to even get into (not even to attempt illegally trespassing into). When Joann contacted us with her idea of photographing in a junkyard we didn’t have any idea that finding one to use would be just about as impossible as finding an abandoned building- but fortunately not entirely impossible. We were so excited when we finally found a salvage yard that was kind enough to allow us to use their property for our shoot. Joann is just getting her start into the modeling world and after working with her just one time I have to say that she is a real natural. She’s not only beautiful but a very sweet person as well- we were so glad we had the opportunity to work with her! Joann’s sister and husband also came along for the shoot and we had a great time with all of them- even got a few shots of Joann and her husband together! It was a fun day, although a bit muddy, but we got some great shots for her portfolio and even took one with the cutest junk yard cat who followed us around all afternoon. Here’s a few from our day.
