Denver Family Photographers
Aren’t we all getting bored with the same old Instagram feed of families lined up, smiling artificially at the camera? Where’s the story? Who are these people in the picture, really? We are starving more than ever for authentic, emotionally evocative images of people–Pictures that are as unique as the individuals in them.
I would like to photograph you in a way that will show you what your family really looks when you’re together. Such images, in their honesty, tell a story that is timeless and true. You will walk away with a set of photographs that should make you gasp and clutch at your heart when you look at them in the years to come. They should age like fine wine, reminding you that you are a great mother, a hilarious brother, a tender father. You’ll see the freckles, the missing teeth, you’ll remember the giggles, the pouts, that well-loved stuffie that your two-year-old can’t part with.
Is it okay to pose a little for the holiday card component of the Denver family photography shoot? Sure. We can do some of those to cover our bases, but let’s have some fun and see what might happen if we let go and “fall apart”. Let’s see what might evolve from those initially awkward, sometimes stiff photos. Let’s capture your real smile, your natural stance, the gentle way you look at your children when no one is looking. There’s nothing wrong with people smiling at the camera. I love smiling faces! But a good family photo shoot can be so much more than that. It can be the place where memories are not only made but preserved forever. They can be the Instagram photos that stop people in their tracks because they are so intimate or emotionally resonant.
I’m Julie, and I’m a Denver family photographer who photographs families all over the Front Range of Colorado including Denver, Boulder, Longmont, Louisville, Lafayette, Fort Collins, Golden and beyond.
