Denver Senior Portraits | Chloe | Arvada West High School
Denver Super Bowl Champion Headshot-David Bruton Jr
Thought I would finally share these headshots of Denver Super Bowl Champion David Bruton Jr. I was hired by Brakes Plus to photograph David Bruton Jr for their advertising campaign and David’s philanthropy Bruton’s Books. David was nominated the past year for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award for Bruton’s Books.
Here what it’s about directly from his site: “David Bruton Jr. has partnered with Mile High United Way to help tackle reading. Through this partnership, Bruton’s Books is helping low-income children in grades K-3 become strong readers through the Mile High United Way Colorado Reading Corps program, and by providing books to underfunded schools, libraries and classrooms.” It’s such a great cause to support.
Most of what we photographed was David in his Denver Broncos Jersey for the ad’s, but we also photograph a small portion without his NFL jersey. I love these portraits that we captured of him. David is the nicest guy to photograph. We photographed him on a Tuesday. David had a huge interception on Sunday’s game. He was a little banged up, but had a huge smile the whole time and was playful and fun throughout the session. The season was looking special for the Broncos, and the defense was playing lights out. Even though I am a huge Atlanta Falcons fan(born and raised), it was great to see my new home city become Super Bowl Champions. Probably the most loyal fans in the NFL.
Twenty Seventeen Senior Model Reps Wanted
The search starts now! Twenty Seventeen Senior Model Reps Wanted for Roka Studios. We have now opened our search for Class of 2017 seniors to become part of our team. What is a Spokesmodel and what do they do? Model reps are an extension and face of our studio. We are looking for outgoing, fashionable seniors that like to have fun. Model reps help promote our studio and in return get a chance to earn prints, products, cash, and a destination senior session.. All our model reps get two free senior sessions from us. One in the spring and one in the summer. We provide our model reps with all the tools they need to help promote our studio. Examples of promoting our studio are handing out model cards, promoting us on social media, using our photos on social media, talking about us to other students, taking part in our styled sessions, etc.
Besides the two free sessions, our model reps favorite part is taking part of our styled and themed sessions. We go all out with professional hair and makeup, rent a killer location to photograph in, and get decked out in clothes. Check out our blog post when we rented out the Denver Clock Tower. We had a prom theme, nightlife theme, and busted out some custom made parachute dresses. In the past we have also rented out Highland Ranch Mansion for a styled session. You can see some of those image below plus some of previous senior model reps, or just some of our favorite senior portraits.
If you are interested in becoming a senior model rep for Roka Studios, the first thing you need to do is fill out an application online. You can do that here: Senior Model Rep Application.

I can’t wait to meet and photograph our twenty seventeen model reps.
Denver Senior Pictures | Alaina
When you think of Colorado and December, you would automatically assume that it is freezing cold with snow on the ground. Even living here for the last 16 years, I am constantly surprised how warm it can be in the winter months. Alaina came to Roka Studios for her Denver senior pictures this past December. As you will see by the photos we were able to roam around the Rino Arts District for her session. It was even warm enough for her to wear a dress. Got to love living in Colorado.
Alaina spent her summer traveling outside the United States. She now has the travel bug and wants to see the world after she graduates from Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy. She is involved with theater and dance at school. It was great to get to know her and her mom during the session. I am constantly amazed by the seniors I get to photograph. Their dreams are big and they have accomplished so much in their high school years. I love being able to see their journeys after high school on social media. Over the years we have even photographed some of our previous senior client weddings. It’s such an honor to photograph these milestones in a persons life and have it documented and cherished for years to follow.

Denver High School Team & Individual Photography
Roka Studios offers Denver High School Team & Individual Photography to local high school and club teams. A couple of years ago after seeing so many unflattering sports photos of our kids, we decided to enter into the team and individual photography market in Denver. When we sat down to decide what we wanted to offer for sports teams, we decided to use all the current technology that was out there. We wanted to create sports portraits the athletes and parents were blown away by. Over the years kids have grown up with sport portraits on the field, in front of a tree, & on a basketball court. It’s gotten boring and predictable. We wanted something extreme and with incredible graphics the athletes would love. We researched and partnered with the best labs, found great new products, bought cutting edge software, and created some outstanding designs.
We decided to create what we wanted to, we needed to photograph all our athletes on green screen. Photographing this way allows us a true blank canvas when it comes time to design the sport portraits. It also allows us to photograph anytime, day or night. We no longer have to worry about wind, rain, daylight, or makeup days. We photograph on green screen inside in the school. Our schools and clubs have loved photo day and the results we have produced. Over the last two years we have photographed for Columbine High School, Chatfield High School, Boulder High School, Erie High School, Ponderosa High School, & Legend High School.
We still sell the items that parents still love. Some of our hottest items that we have added is Game Day Banners, Team Banners, Posters, & Schedules which you can see samples of below. We also have an in house designer that can create your high school Media Guide or program. If you do your on design for media guides we also offer an option for just cover designs to make your media guide.
To find out more about what we can do and offer for your school give us a call at 303-702-1515 or on our website here: http://rokastudios.com/high-school-sports/. Currently we are only serving high school sports and club sports. Below are some of the sample designs and products we offer.
