Layla 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.
Layla was the first of 3 students I photographed. She’s hoping to go to college at Colorado State University and study in the field of medicine. She has a daughter, who she describes as spoiled rotten. It’s hard not to spoil a cute little kid, right?
We had a lot of fun at our session! We went all over City Park and the Nature and Science Museum. There are some great, modern areas at the back of the museum that are nice and quiet. And with City Park right there, we had the perfect mix of nature and urban.
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!
