I love photographing passionate people. While most of my Denver and Boulder headshot clients are artists and entrepreneurs, anyone who is passionate about what they do is a perfect fit for me. I met Yazan at an Energy Storage Expo I was photographing for a colleague of mine, Kinser Studios. It was a huge conference but I ran into him a few times, while he was engaging with vendors, asking questions at seminars, and networking with his colleagues. It was very clear to me that he loves what he does.
Yazan works as an Electrical Engineer for American Electric Power in Columbus. While he was visiting Denver for the expo, he wanted to get some fun photos in the city. His mother’s birthday was coming up and he wanted to gift her a few portraits of himself. Isn’t that so sweet of him!?
We met up after the expo, just outside the Colorado Convention Center. It was cloudy and rainy but that didn’t stop us from having a great portrait session. In fact, the rain really enhanced the color of everything and gave a very cool effect to the photos. Plus, we borrowed some cool umbrellas from the hotel Yazan was staying in and used them as fun props in some of the photos.
The Colorado Convention Center and surrounding areas proved to be a great location. It’s modern and urban. There are lots of trees and plants around for a nature feel as well. And I just love the Big Blue Bear. It’s such an iconic Denver sculpture and it gives the photos a nice pop of color.
I loved working with Yazan and creating these fun portraits together. I know his mother with just love them and I hope his family will cherish them for a long time.
