Business Coach Lisa | Denver Branding Headshots

Every one of my personal branding clients gets a series of emails from me. One of the first ones they get after booking me for Denver branding headshots is an email with a list of suggested hair and makeup artists. I always recommend that my portrait clients hire a makeup artist. Even if you don’t normally wear makeup, a professional can really help perfect your look in photos.

The first makeup artist on that list is Oksana. She is multi-talented and has a lot of experience with makeup for the camera as well as brand styling. When Lisa booked Oksana for her session, she not only her for hair and makeup, she also booked her for wardrobe styling. They worked together before Lisa’s personal branding session to shop for the best outfits that would flatter her and showcase her branding.

Just before our session together, Oskana went to Lisa’s house to do her hair and makeup. They also worked together to narrow down the outfits for our session and pair everything up perfectly, from sweaters and scarves to the jewelry. At the beginning of every session, I always look through outfits with my clients and figure out what would look best on them and on camera. I’ve learned a few tips and tricks along the way as to what clothing works best, what flatters different body types, and how to showcase a brand through clothing. That said, it is so, so awesome to have someone who is actually an expert in this work with you from shopping to styling.

Business Coach Lisa | Denver Branding Headshots

Lisa and I had an amazing session at her friend’s cabin. Since this was an at home session in the mountains, we had to get some cozy cabin portraits. Outside, we caught some of the first fall leaves and even a bit of snow. It was pretty cold but Lisa powered through it and it was totally worth it! I mean just look at how beautiful these are!

Wyo-Horse Jewelry | Denver Branding Photography

I do a lot of Denver branding photography for service-based entrepreneurs and people who are the face of their brand, whether they are artists, politicians, or small business owners. For these sessions, the photos are all about the person in front of me. I focus on their personality and helping their audience connect with them through their portraits. We tailor the outfits and locations to match their brand.

This session for Wyo-Horse Jewelry was a bit different from my regular branding sessions because this brand was a product line, rather than an individual. I photographed this session with a photographer friend of mine, Jennifer Mason. We had four models and Jennifer and I rotated between them as they changed outfits and jewelry. There were a lot of different pieces and looks to cover. We had a ton of variety, which made for a really fun branding session.

Wyo-Horse Jewelry specializes in unique, trendy, and colorful jewelry and accessories that are fashionable with a western edge. They are a wholesale jeweler so they sell their products through farm and western wear stores. They have a ton of jewelry options, as well as some accessories like sweaters and bags. And everything is made right here in Denver! Supporting local small businesses is always so amazing.

Just like with personal branding sessions, we tailored the location and outfits to the brand. We asked the models to each bring a few outfit options with neutral and earth tones. This way, the colors matched the brand but the clothing wasn’t distracting from the focus of the photos, the jewelry. We decided to do the session at Genesee Mountain Park. This spot isn’t far from Denver (in fact it is still considered a Denver park) and it has a gorgeous mountain setting with tons of evergreen trees, boulders, and a beautiful field that we used for sunset photos.

Bird Fur in RiNo | Denver Brand Photography

Bird Fur Tees is the t-shirt company my brother, Josh, created. Josh has always had a quirky sense of humor and an entrepreneurial spirit and this company has been the perfect combination for him. His shirts are funny, weird, timely, and sometimes even philanthropic. He’s always posting behind the scenes photos, new designs, and funny memes on his Facebook page. Go ahead and take a look.

All our shoots have been in urban parts of Denver with bright, colorful murals as our backdrop. These kinds of locations are my absolute favorites since I’m pretty much addicted to bright colors and patterns. This time, we went back to RiNo, the location for our original photoshoot. This neighborhood is full of awesome breweries, coffee shops and tons of cool murals.

This awesome woman was just rollerblading by our photo shoot and we asked her to try on a tank for some photos. She was totally up for it and she even showed us some cool tricks! She and her boyfriend were in town from Ohio, where she’s part of a roller derby team. We asked her to pick her favorite shirt to model and she loved the aliens one.

Of course, we stole another dog (which we returned again) to cameo in some photos. I think this little guy really identified with the “Please let there be a dog at this party” shirt! Plus, Juliet is the animal whisperer so we got some great photos.

We found the perfect spot for our group photos. This little fabric shop looks like it’s been closed for ages but these signs are timeless and perfect for t-shirt brand photography! Plus, the sunset was pretty great. Typical Colorado!

Breakthrough Artist Alison | Boulder Headshot Photography

Alison is Boulder’s Breakthrough Artist! She uses art to help women of all ages tell their story, learn more about themselves, and feel empowered. I loved connecting with her and talking to her about her work because this is exactly what I am striving to do with my Boulder headshot photography! I wholeheartedly believe that art is such a powerful tool that can be used to transform people’s lives and the world. I love seeing other women in my community using art for good.

bouder-headshots, boulder-branding-portraits, denver-branding-session, denver-headshot-photographer

Alison runs the Honey Beadery, an energetic, innovative, creative art studio and garden. She hosts workshops and classes, and creates gorgeous work of her own. Her workshops are perfect for self-aware, open, and curious women who are interested in learning more about themselves. They are more than just craft events, they are a form of art therapy. Participants create beaded work while exploring themselves on a deeper level, through Alison’s guidance.

We chose to do her personal branding headshots in her studio and garden since the place is so integral to her work. Her studio is amazing! It is full of light and bright colors. There are art supplies everywhere. I think it might be heaven. Her garden so clearly shows the love she has put into it. It is lush and beautiful. She went to Alchemy Face Bar for her make and did her own hair since she used to be a hairdresser. She looked amazing, don’t you think? I also loved the outfits she brought to the session. The bright colors she chose helped make the portraits so joyful and brought out the blue in her eyes so well. And since she makes jewelry, she picked out bracelets, earrings, and necklaces to go with each outfit.

Bird Fur Tees on Santa Fe | Denver Brand Photography

This week is small business week, so I wanted to celebrate with a shout out to one of my favorite small businesses! I’ve been doing a bunch of brand photography for Bird Fur Tees in order to keep up with all their new designs and the sessions are always so much fun!

Bird Fur Tees is the t-shirt company created by my brother, Josh. Josh has always had a quirky sense of humor and an entrepreneurial spirit so this has been the perfect endeavor for him. His shirts are funny, weird, timely, and sometimes even philanthropic. He’s always posting behind the scenes photos, new designs, and funny memes on his Instagram feed.

All our shoots have been in urban parts of Denver with bright, colorful murals as our backdrop. These kinds of locations are my absolute favorites since I’m pretty much addicted to bright colors and patterns. For this shoot, we went to the Santa Fe Arts District. There are so many great galleries, studios, and murals here. I love coming for First Friday for the art walks!

We had a lot of fun at this shoot. There were new friends and old modeling for us. These shoots are always playful, a little bit weird, and full of laughter. At one point, I made all the guys tickle each other. I have video evidence! We even got some behind the scenes photos taken by one of our models, Jackson! I really love some of these new shirts. Someone get me the Beyoncé one please!

We always try to take a few photos of blank t-shirts so Josh can photoshop on new designs before we have a chance to do another photoshoot. This way we can consolidate the shoots and get a bunch of shirts photographed at once, but Josh can still share out his new designs in real time. Plus, he’s gotten really good at photoshop!
