Teen Coach Theresa | Boulder Branding Photography

I met Theresa through Daring Divas, an amazing group of women business owners in Boulder. Check out their directory of local, women-owned businesses to support their remarkable efforts. Theresa started with the Daring Divas Directory when she was looking for branding photography to support the launch of her new business. I’m so glad
she found me! We had a great session together.

Theresa is a teen and parent coach who focuses on helping teenagers and their parents communicate with each other. A lot of kids go through a very difficult time in their teenage years and having the support and tools to deal with everything is so important. Theresa is a mom of three and she’s been through it all before. Her work is so amazing and important!

Theresa’s personal branding session was shot at her favorite place, South Mesa Trailhead. She comes here to go on walks, see the mountains, and to clear her mind. The goal of personal branding photography is to express a sense of who you are and the location is an integral of that.

Theresa hired one of my recommended hair and makeup artists, Oksana Brown. She always does an amazing job helping my clients show off their natural beauty. Most of my clients opt for a subtle, natural makeup look that is more in keeping with their daily look. Oksana does such a great job with this. She is also a great stylist and she always helps my clients pick out their outfits for their session. She can even go shopping with you to pick out the perfect pieces!

If you’re wanting outdoor headshots like these, but don’t want to be cold, April through October is the best time to have your session. My summer and fall get booked up pretty quickly so, even though it may seem early, now is the perfect time to reach out and start planning your personal branding or headshot session.

Graceful Parent Janet | Lafayette Headshot Photography

Janet came to me looking to do personal branding headshots with water as her main background. Colorado may be landlocked but there are a few bodies of water in the area. When we were looking for a water location for Lafayette headshot photography, I found Waneka Lake. It had the water that Janet connected so strongly with and an adorable beach house, which offered her a nice place to change outfits. Plus, this photo shoot location doesn’t require any permit, which is so hard to find in the area. I knew it would be the perfect location when I got out of my car. I couldn’t even see the lake yet, but I could smell it! Growing up, I spent my summers in Wisconsin, Indiana, and Michigan so the lake smell felt so familiar to me. I haven’t found anywhere else in Colorado that gave me the same feeling.

Janet runs The Graceful Parent, a website for parents of children with mental health, developmental, and learning disabilities. through her own experience, she helps parents and grandparents develop coping mechanisms to deal with the unique issues they face on a day to day basis. Her strong intuitive abilities and passion for her mission make her an excellent teacher in her community.

For her personal branding portraits, we wanted to convey a sense of calm and contentedness. The calm, still water was one component of that and she has a naturally gentle face, which made my job easy! Together, we chose outfits that complemented her branding colors, so that the photos wouldn’t look out of place on her website or promotional materials. Throughout the session, I made sure to pose and photograph her in a way that felt very approachable. We even played around in the water for a some of the shots!

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.

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.
