Arvada CO High School Senior Photographer

One of My Favorite Sessions

Hi, I'm Beth Wedlake and I am an Arvada CO High School Senior Photographer. I've been invited to write about one of my favorite sessions! While it's hard to narrow down an all time favorite from over twenty years of photographing Senior Pictures, Bella's session at Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue is certainly a favorite of mine from the last year or so. A horse rescue might not immediately come to mind when you're thinking about locations for senior portraits but I'm here to tell you it was PURE MAGIC!  Bella volunteers at the rescue so it was a great way to show off her personality and love of horses.

The mist lifting off the lake in the background created such a serene feeling as we walked Bella's favorite horse through the pasture!

Misty lakes in Colorado, you ask? I know it's unusual because we are famous for our sunshine but that soft morning light made everything look positively dreamy.

I scouted this location prior to Bella's session and immediately fell in love with it!  I was raised on a farm so wide open spaces with barns feel like home to me. Plus, everywhere I looked there were fun, rustic props like this old truck!

And you know, it's not everyday I get to use hay bales as a backdrop!

I love the pop of color from this red barn! We were spoiled for choices on places to shoot and Bella was a delight to work with!

I like to give high school seniors a variety of looks so after an outfit change we headed over to the trees to create images with more of a light, airy feel. Don't you think these are a perfect compliment to the the rustic poses? By the way, I loved Bella's wardrobe choices! Her mom set up a rack of clothing and accessories in one of the barns so it was easy for us to coordinate clothing with each setting. I'm not sure how easy it was for Bella to change clothes in a barn but she pulled it off!

And you guys - a blue barn! It was the perfect spot to wrap up our session.

Bella got special permission to use this location for her Senior Portraits and I'm so glad she did.  I really enjoyed the opportunity to photograph at such a beautiful place. I guess for me it's like they say,  "you can take the girl out of the farm but you can't take the farm out of the girl"!
