RHS Prom Portraits { Rifle, CO Portrait Photographer }

RHS Prom.

Last week I had the opportunity to take these 4 Rifle High students photographs before they went to prom. You can see how amazing they look in the photos below or click the slide show link above to see all of their prom photographs. All of them are seniors and graduating from Rifle High School next month except for one. You will see more photos of Katelyn at another date when I take her senior photographs.

To all those that didn’t book me for portraits before prom: you can still schedule a “Rock the Prom Dress” photo session with me. This portrait session is where you can put that beautiful prom dress to use another time and get some amazing photographs of you wearing it. You don’t have to get your hair and makeup professionally done again for these photos. Just be you wearing your dress and you will look great. For the session we won’t have to worry as much about getting dirty before your prom. We can do nice clean photos if you’re still worried about your dress or we can photograph you in a more fun nontraditional way that you may not have done right before prom. We can get as crazy as you want for some amazing photographs like photograph you in the water with your prom dress on. If you’re wanting to do something a little more crazy and worried about your dress you can always buy one from a thrift shop to use. There’s a lot of fun things we can do for your prom dress photographs. One thing that is for sure about these sessions is you will get photographs of you looking amazing in your beautiful dress just like the Rifle High School teens pictured below. Guys can also get some great photos of them in a tux or a nice suit they have around. So contact me now about scheduling your own “Rock the Prom Dress” photo session today- I know you’ll love doing it. You can schedule your session for you by yourself or split the session fee and do it with a friend or two.

I love the beautiful blossoms- spring is a great time to get your portraits taken. Look in the pictures below at how cute the little girls’ hair is done- such beautiful girls. The youngest was great at getting everyone to smile- she’s quite the character!

I had a blast photographing this cute couple enjoy their engagement photographs taken here in Rifle, CO.

Kelsey’s Senior Portraits { Carbondale Senior Portrait photographer }

Kelsey’s Senior Portraits.

Check out this beautiful Basalt High School Senior’s portraits. I had a great time taking Kelsey and Alfie’s photos. Alfie was such a sweet cooperative horse. We took Kelsey’s senior portraits in Debeque, Colorado at High Lonesome Ranch, where she works at during the summer. That was the first time I’ve been back in that area and it’s beautiful. We were there in the winter so I can only imagine what the area will look like once it starts to warm up and turn green. Kelsey was a trooper because it was really cold outside! But winter is still a lovely time to take photographs. Too bad we didn’t have much pretty snow this winter here in western Colorado! I had a hard time deciding which of her senior portraits were my favorite- she had so many great pictures! I think her make up was done beautifully- it photographed really well as you can see in the photographs below.

The Boyd Family {Rifle, CO Family Photographer }

The Boyd Family.

Click the link above to see the full slide show of their family photographs. This beautiful family took their family portraits at Rifle Falls State Park. They have 3 beautiful children- the youngest girl was a super model throwing out all sorts of cute poses. I loved it! I also love their coordinated outfits. This is a great example of what to wear to your family portraits. Choose a color scheme (typically a few colors) that everyone will wear- but everyone doesn’t have to be exactly matching. Solid colors mixed with a bit of pattern look good. You can wear layers to add extra interest. But really the only rule to determining what to wear is be you and wear what you are comfortable with and like.

Meeker Stake Prom { Meeker. CO photographer }

Meeker Stake Prom.

Click the link above to see a slide show of the photos I took last Saturday night at the Meeker Stake Prom. FYI- If you watch the HD version it might take a minute to load. This is one of the best group of teenagers you’ll find around! I had a blast taking them. You can tell from the photos they didn’t need much help with posing! They all looked so nice! Hope you all enjoy the prom photographs!
