Family Portraits

In Studio: Trent Family

Back in October we set up our home studio to welcome in the Trent family. They were some of our first clients a little over a year ago when we started shooting, not for money, but for gift cards to restaurants! Needless to say, this awesome family of four has been an incredible blessing to get to know over the past year. 

This year, father and husband, Asim, was hoping to do something a little different. He came across a portrait we made and posted on our social media, which resembled the Platon aesthetic. Just being told that our portrait made him think of the famed British photographer, Platon, was encouraging enough--so, to be summoned to shoot individual, family portraits in that style was a real treat.  

One of the advantages of working in-studio is tethering our cameras to the computer. We tether our Sony A7RII camera bodies to our iMac via a Tether Tools cable and use Capture One Pro 10 for Sony in order to bring the images in and apply some preset processes to each image--this is so that the models can get a feel for what the final images will look like. We ended up delivering 9 images in total--in both color and black & white for each. These four are our personal favorites! What do you think? The opportunities for wall art made from these images are very exciting--framed individually, side-by-side in one long panoramic image, or even in a 2x2 layout within one square frame would be pretty cool. We are excited to see how they decide to frame and display their portraits.

Mother's Day: Gift from the Boys

Our friend, Jimmy, decided to have photos taken of his two boys, printed, and framed for his wife on Mother's Day. What a great idea!? We headed over to a local park around golden hour (an hour or so before sunset) to get some images of Niko and Michael, as well as of a couple four-legged members of the family. The shoot lasted about an hour, using mostly the Sony A7R2 body with the Sony GMaster 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. We also made use of one Profoto B2 head with a 2' octa soft box modifier. 

Shoot us an email if you have any quick portrait needs such as this. We would love to get out for an hour or so to get you some images to use as framed gifts for a spouse or special person! Our base shoots start at $250 but can be as low as $50 depending on what you need. 

Newborn Session with BABY Serenity

Baby Serenity gave us the opportunity to shoot our youngest infant yet. She was just two weeks old when she came by the studio, accompanied by mom, dad and grandma. We went at Serenity's pace, a feeding here, a diaper change there, and our fair share of laughs and cries. All in all, we spent a couple hours together and were able to put some memorable images together! If you're in the Denver area and looking to do a newborn session it's best to get your session on the calendar asap--Serenity surprised us all.

The gear: We shot all images with our Sony A7R2 camera bodies, the Zeiss 55mm 1.8, and the G-Master 85mm 1.4 lenses. For the dramatic lighting we used a black drop cloth with a two-light set up: one ProFoto B2 with an octa-softbox, and one Profoto B1 with a grid kit.
