Let me preface this post with the fact that it was a windy day, Brielle naturally reached for her hair a lot, and there were additional photographers directing her at times. Because…there are a TON of photos with hands in the hair LOL! As well as hands on the hat. Sorry, not sorry though! I am still totally in love with Brielle’s Westminster senior pictures.
Brielle was one of the subjects for a group shootout at Standley Lake this past summer. We lucked out with an epic sunset for her session. The weather definitely kept us on our toes throughout. The rain managed to (mostly) stay away until the very end. And then it was a total downpour. As well as some insane hail on my drive home. There were numerous houses in my Firestone development that got their roofs replaced after this hail storm. So glad it didn’t ruin our shoot, or our roof!
I had never shot at Standley Lake before, and it was definitely a great location. Especially in the summer, and with a senior client that is brave enough to get in the water. I love how this lake has views of the mountains, off in the distance, and it really looks like an actual ocean beach. I think because of the cliffs here, it reminds me a little bit of a beach in Santa Barbara where I did my “cousin-in-laws” senior portraits. Click here to check those out too! Or it kind of reminds me of Oregon a little bit too. Maybe I am reaching too much LOL! We just sure don’t have beaches here…so I take what I can get 🙂
Brielle is a stunning girl, and extremely comfortable in front of the camera. I loved her long, boho floral dress. The addition of a floppy hat was a lot of fun too! Accessories can add variety to your portraits, and are always a good idea.
This one is without a doubt my favorite from this session…and one of my favorite Colorado senior portraits of 2018!

Class of 2020…it’s not too early to start thinking about your Colorado senior portraits! I would love to work with you to customize your own senior photography experience. Although y’all are going to make me feel really old, because I graduated in 2000. I am going to constantly be reminded that it’s been 20 years since I was in your shoes. Sometimes, it still feels like yesterday 😉 Brielle, enjoy these last months of your senior year. All the best in your future endeavors!
