Gerardo and I met at the Denver Nature and Science Museum as part of a senior portrait event with New Legacy High School. New Legacy High School is a Denver charter school for young parents. It’s half high school/half early learning center so the students and their children can learn at the same time. When I saw the opportunity to volunteer to photograph senior portraits for these students, I went for it. It was a great opportunity to dip my toes in the Denver senior photography world, while giving back at the same time.
Gerardo was one of the 3 students I photographed that day. When he showed up, I immediately noticed his awesome shoes. I loved the little pop of color on the backs. (check them out in his last photo). He and another student at the school have a daughter together. This little kid is a total daddy’s girl. The whole session, she was trying to play with him and following him around everywhere we went. The three of them are such a cute family.
We had a lot of fun at our session! We did half the session outside, in the park and the other half in the museum. There are some cool modern areas with great natural light in the Museum of Nature and Science. And with City Park right there, we had the perfect mix of nature and modern.
I’m so glad I participated in this event. I approached senior portraits similarly to my headshot sessions. For me, it’s all about creating a fun and relaxed experience and bringing out my client’s personality. I love senior photography and I cannot wait to do more!
