Senior Portraits by Durango Senior Photographers

Amanda goes to Dolores High School near Cortez CO.  She’s a star swimmer on the swim team at her school and also plays volley ball.  She loves hats, so I brought along one of my favorite hats and a little jean jacket, which she also loved.

Here’s what they had to say about their session:

What did you like about our photography that you didn’t see in portraits from other studios?   Answer:  Fun Props

How would you describe your session?  Answer: Fun, Lots of Variety, Flexible

What did you like best about your portraits?  Answer: Quality of Light, composition of background

If you could do your session over again, what, if anything, would you do differently?  Nothing

You may have seen portraits taken by someone with a camera who is not a professional.  Comparing them to yours, what advice would you give to a friend/family member/high school senior who may think a snapshot is “good enough”?   Answer:  You will be missing that something extra special

News and Notes by Durango Wedding Photographers 3.23.15

I wanted to post today’s News and Notes just so all of you can go and read the 15 Hysterical Break Up Texts that you’ll find in this newspaper edition.  I always love a good laugh.  Thank goodness I was not dating during the age of cell phones.  I avoided the awkward selfies, break up texts, and bad posts that will come back to haunt people at some point in their lives.  Mom never knew what trouble I was getting into when I was a teenager and she couldn’t call me to find out where I was.  It was awesome.

Of course, there are also great articles on wedding photography, general photography, social media, marketing and so much more.   I really enjoyed the article and photos on when to use black and white in your photography.  So many wedding moments look amazing in black and white so it’s a definite favorite of mine.

Enjoy!     https://paper.li/ShowmetheLight/1420384991

News and Notes by Durango Wedding Photographers 3.15.15

Ah, today is the Ides of March.  Beware!

Today’s News and Notes is a medley of wedding information.  There’s a great article on 15 Creative Menu ideas for your wedding reception, one covering 10 questions you didn’t know to ask, and 20 secrets to a fun wedding reception.  Every time I read these articles with all these fabulous wedding plans, I want to get married again (to my husband of course).

These are all such great ideas and there are tons of other articles not wedding related, so there has to be something to interest you.  Enjoy!

News and Notes by Durango Wedding Photographers 3.2.15

Here’s today’s News and Notes:  https://paper.li/ShowmetheLight/1420384991

There’s a great article that was shared by The Knot on how to incorporate the “Farm to Table” concept into your wedding reception.  I think this is fabulous because we have lots of farmers who raise organic veggies and fruits around here in Durango CO.  I know many of our local restaurants use this local produce in their menus and I’m sure there are caterers who also use them.  I think a table loaded up with greens and gorgeous fruits would just be too picture perfect!

Style Me Pretty has an article on here about a courageous bride who was diagnosed with cancer 9 months into her wedding planning but decided to go forward with her wedding anyway.  She didn’t have any hair, but that head wrap using her mother’s veil, is just so beautiful.  I think she’s amazing and applaud her for her courage.

Who pays for the bridesmaids hair and makeup?  Open up the paper and find out.

Enjoy.  Luv, Karen

Baby Augie’s Portraits by Durango CO Photographers

Little Augie’s Grandma called me from Parker CO to purchase a portrait session for her new grandson and his mom and dad.  Augie was around 6 weeks old when they came for their session.  Grandma came to Durango to meet her new grandbaby so I was able to get the whole family.  We did some indoor and some outdoor shots in the snow.

I loved this family – they were so nice and patient (babies don’t always cooperate the way you would like).  Just as we were getting ready to head outdoors, he fell asleep.

When Augie’s mom came to view the images, she thought I had got maybe 4 good shots.  She was blown away that I had 31 beautiful portraits of her new baby.
