Austin | Denver Senior Photography

I met Austin at the Denver Nature and Science Museum as part of a senior portrait event for New Legacy High School. New Legacy High School is a Denver charter school for young parents. It’s half high school and 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.

Austin and his girlfriend both attended New Legacy High School. His girlfriend graduated a year before him. Their daughter is five-years-old; such a fun age! The school leader, at the event could not stop bragging about how smart Austin is and what a good student he’s been. She kept saying he was their most motivated student. And after talking to him, it was clear to me that he loves school. He’s really passionate about science and could not wait to come back to the museum with his daughter.

We had a great session together! Austin loved the nature that City Park had to offer and really wanted water in some of the photos. I love that we were able to capture so many sides to his personality. My favorite shot of him is the one where he’s sitting by the water, having a quiet moment to himself. At the end of the session, we made sure to get some photos of him and his girlfriend together.

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!
