I first met Athena a few years ago at the very first wedding I ever photographed. I knew her dad from my day job at the time and he referred me to the happy couple. So when he reached out for his daughters senior portraits I was thrilled! I knew she'd be amazing to work with and I wasn't wrong! The whole family tagged along and we had a great time.
When we found each other in our meeting spot in Morrison we went through her wardrobe to decide which outfits would work with each location. I LOVED her style - Warm, somewhat trendy, unique, dressed-up casual. We started in Morrison before heading over to the nearby nature location. I like doing a 2 location session because it gives clients a great variety to choose from.
We started at the license plate wall (probably one of my most requested locations) and then wandered around Morrison to get a variety of small town urban backdrops. There was a concert at Red Rocks that evening and we had to get creative so we didn't have hundreds of people in the background!
It was bright, sunny and hot in Morrison...but when we headed to the nearby nature location the weather shifted a bit because a storm was rolling in. That didn't stop us! The dark clouds and wind created some stunning portraits of Athena that are still some of my favorites to this day!
Check out some of my favorite photos from her session and read a bit more about Athena below....
