Denver Portrait Photography
What to expect from Your Family, Child, Senior or Individual portrait session
We will agree on a “look” and location for your portraits. Ideas can be gleaned from my blog or I can e-mail you specific recommendations. I have several favorite locations for Denver Portrait Photography but I also LOVE photographing in new places .
If we are meeting at a location other than my studio I will have my cell phone with me 720-431-3966. I will also ask for yours in case we need to coordinate the day of the session. It can be hard to get everyone ready for pictures but once you get there just relax and have fun. Your only job is to be yourself! If children are involved I will try to get them looking at the camera and smiling for the first ten minutes or so ( I have a few tricks up my sleeve). After that we can just play and have fun. Kids can do no wrong on a photo session as far as I am concerned. Grownups can be playful, too- holding hands, walking together, whispering in each others ear – doing those things give your portraits that “real”, loving, natural feel. You are probably more used to standing in a line and smiling at the camera for pictures but often the less posed portraits are everyone’s favorites!
The way I typically work is “structured to casual”. I’ll start out with some posed portraits, a few of everyone looking at the camera and smiling. Then I adopt a more relaxed style and in the end often try something completely new or different. I take a lot of pictures in a short amount of time. You can expect to see 50-100 images from a one hour session.
How to view your images
Your images will be ready to view about one week after your session. I will post them to a password protected portion of my website with an online store and shopping cart. They will be available for at least one month. During this time you may choose to …
~Share the link and password with family and friends. Spread the love!
~Choose your favorite images to share on social media. I will create a gallery on my biz page for you, all you have to do is tag and/or share. This is a complimentary (optional) service. You can also share directly from your online gallery!
~Browse the online store for your favorite images and see purchase options in prints, digital packages, canvas gallery wraps, greeting cards and more! Make your selections and check out using secure credit card processing. This is perfect for clients who are comfortable with online ordering and make buying decisions easily!
~Set up an appointment with me for a complimentary viewing and ordering session. No high pressure sales – just a great way to see my products and get recommendations on how to use and display your images. This is perfect for clients who are overwhelmed, don’t like viewing their images online or prefer to go over things in person.

Referrals are the best compliment
I have built my business over the years on “word of mouth” and it continues to grow in this way. Thanks for helping me spread the word about my boutique photo studio! I offer complimentary social media images (optional) with every session to share with family and friends and also have referral cards to share. Every successful referral is rewarded with a $25 studio credit to the client who gave the recommendation and $25 off a session fee to the new client!
