I have known Kate for awhile now and when she said she wanted to do one of these portrait sessions with me I was beyond thrilled! I loved collaborating and seeing this whole other side to her.
We go to trivia together every week, go shopping and hiking together and she has assisted me on several photo sessions and weddings. She has become one of my best friends and to be able to do a This Is Me session with her meant the world to me!
The day of the session we started at the studio with hair and make-up. We decided to do the entire This Is Me session in studio to keep with the glam look Kate was wanting. She brought several outfits, including two new dresses that fit her look perfectly! After she was pampered with hair and make-up we started in her favorite new, black and gold dress and went from there. It was a lot of goofing off, laughing and tons of fun!
When she came in to view her photos she was thrilled with how they came out and we had a hard time narrowing them down to fit into an album! Check out her favorites and learn a little more about who she is and why she did these glamorous portraits....
I have known Katie for years. Typically we work together on her branding and headshot photos for her social media posts, blogging and website. We always have SO MUCH FUN!!! We laugh and catch up and it usually ends with us grabbing lunch in downtown Littleton. I really enjoy our sessions....so when I approached her about this new line of portraits I wanted to launch she immediately jumped on board and we started brainstorming ideas right away! She wanted something bad ass, empowering and fierce. Which is so far from our normal sessions, but I knew we could do it.
The day of the session we started at my studio with hair and make-up. We decided to do the entire session inside the studio based on her inspiration board and the ideas I presented to her. She brought two outfits that totally fit the theme and we spent the afternoon shooting, laughing and attempting to keep straight faces

Why was this important to you? Why did you do a "This Is Me Project"portrait session?
I am always "on" as bubbly and outgoing, constantly laughing and smiling. I wanted to show the sexy, sassy vibe that is also within me. I wanted to see what fuels me from the inside, reflected on the outside!
What was your favorite part of the whole process?
Um... favorite PART? The WHOLE THING. From the make-up and hair, choosing my outfits and having the session that was truly just for me!
