Something friends/people might not know about you: Something people might not know about me is that I’ve always been obsessed with 1950s movies. For example, my all-time favorite movie is Singin’ in the Rain. I’ve just always loved the glamorous styles and cute love stories that came from that era.
 
Your dream vacation: My dream vacation would be a road trip with all of my best friends just travelling across the country. It honestly wouldn’t even matter where we are going, as long as I’m with my friends it’ll be a dream vacation.

When I grow up I wanna be: I hope someday to be an actress on Broadway, or even potentially a high school theatre teacher. To be completely honest if it involves theatre, I’ll be there.
 
Your favorite musical artist: I really like Billy Joel. His songs are just so beautifully written and I love all of them. My favorite song from him is Vienna.
 
First concert: I went to a Taylor Swift concert when I was thirteen, and I’m not gonna lie, it was freaking awesome.
 
Your jam song and why?: It’s kinda nerdy, but “Hey Good Lookin” from the musical Dogfight is always my default jam song.

Favorite movies: Singin’ in the Rain, La La Land, Forrest Gump, Anchorman, and Gone Girl.
 
Your list of possible colleges and major: A couple colleges I’ve been considering are University of Northern Colorado, The American Musical and Dramatics Academy, and Ithaca College. I definitely want to major in Musical Theatre.
 
Your favorite memory growing up: I always remember being really close with my all of my cousins growing up. We all had silly imaginations so the possibilities were endless with the games we would play.
 
Summer plans: This Summer you will be catching me handing back change, working at Water World. I will also hopefully be going to the pool a lot this Summer.
 
Where do you envision yourself being in 10 years: In ten years I hope to be living in New York City. Not 100% sure what I’d be doing, but New York is definitely being in the picture.

Denver School of the Arts-Denver Senior Pictures

Meet Aleah from Denver School of the Arts. She came to us for her Denver Senior Pictures. Aleah has incredible style, stunning beauty, and is an accomplished musician. Aleah choose our Luxe Session, which includes professional hair and makeup by Blushed Artistry, 4 hours for her session, unlimited outfits, and multiple locations. We started at our studio inside and outside of our studio. Our studio is located in the Rino Arts District so we had to include some bold colorful graffiti. We also went to the back side of Union Station.

We love incorporating high school seniors passions, hobbies, or sports into their senior portraits. Aleah and her dad are both musicians and play the saxophone. There was a couple of photos she wanted to recreate that her dad had done in the past. When Aleah and her dad came to her premier ordering session, they both fell in love with the two saxophone photos I posted below. There are so many beautiful senior portraits of Aleah.

Schools will be getting out next week, so Class of 2018, it’s time to start thinking about what you want your senior portraits to look like. Do you want an urban setting? A country or rustic setting? Do you want the Colorado mountains or Denver skyline as your backdrop? What is your passion in life that you would want to include in your senior portraits. Are you a dancer, football player, musician, athlete, book lover, hunter, etc. Let’s create something EPIC for your senior portraits. We are open to any and all bold ideas for your senior portraits.  Let’s set the bar higher Class of 2018. We know plenty of locations that we can recommend throughout the Denver Front Range metro area.

Give us a call to set up your senior portrait session this summer. We will be offering 1/2 off all senior sessions the month of June!

Denver Senior Pictures | CeCe | Arapahoe High School

Meet CeCe from Arapahoe High School who came to us for her Denver senior pictures. CeCe is nothing but smiles and giggles and I had a great time photographing her senior portraits. We actually had to do her session twice. As you can see from the dark clouds and the first two photos, the skies in Denver were dark and a storm quickly moved in. We had to call the session due to the weather and reschedule it for another day. We were able to capture a couple of portraits in her Cheer uniform before the storm came rolling in. Since we determined that we captured what we wanted in front of the Denver skyline. We decide to use the bold graffiti in the Rino Arts District for part of her session and then went to a park for an outdoor look. That’s one thing I love about the open spaces in Denver. You can drive 10 minutes outside of Denver and find a great open space park. The metro area of Denver is lined up with parks all over the front range that make great backdrops for Denver senior pictures.

Class of 2018 time to start thinking about what kind of look you want for your Denver senior pictures. Do you want a rustic look? A mountain background? A city or urban look somewhere throughout Denver. The Denver metro area has some many possibilities for your senior portrait. Roka Studios can’t wait to create something epic for you. Give us a call at 303-702-1515 to schedule your senior pictures.

Fort Collins Senior Photos | Maddy | Rocky Mountain High School

Check out Maddy’s Fort Collins senior photos with her horse! I LOVE to incorporate what seniors are into for their portraits. Maddy attends Rocky Mountain High school and absolutely loves horses. She has two horses that are her life. She spends so many hours training them,  and also competes with them all over Colorado. The first image is one of my favorites. Maddy posted this photo on Instagram and summed in up perfectly.  She said “Years of work and training captured in a single moment forever”. This photo and the one below is was selected and recognized nationally by Seniors Inspire. The first photo is in their Top 100 Hall of fame. The second photo was a feature photo which  Roka Studios was named one of the 30 Senior Photographers to watch in 2017.  I feel so honored to be recognized for our Denver senior photography. This wouldn’t be possible without the seniors who demand something different and want to have their senior portraits with what they love to do.

Class of 2018 start thinking about what you want your senior photos to look like. We can’t wait to create with you.

Denver Senior Portraits-Nate

I love incorporating a senior’s passion or hobby into their Denver Senior Portraits. Nate from Mountain Vista High School is all about baseball. When talking to his mom to book Nate’s session, we talked about what he loves and that love is baseball. Not only does he play baseball for high school, he also plays on the travel team. Nate eats, breathes, and lives for baseball. Most senior boys aren’t into spending a lot of time taking senior portraits. I came up with the idea of getting dressed up, adding a couple of props for baseball and photograph him in front of Coors Field. I envisioned a some sort of suit, with black eye stickers and a bat. Nate came prepared and we created on of my favorite sports photos. Nate’s mom and dad were thrilled with the first photo in the post. They printed a large print for their home.

We love incorporating sports, hobbies, and passions into our Denver senior portraits. Class of 2018 start thinking about what you want to include in your senior photos. Are you a drummer who wants to bring their drum set on a dirt road? Do you love motor cross  and want to include some epic jumping shots for your senior portraits?

Denver Senior Photos | Carley | Mountain Vista High School

Carley came to Roka Studios to have her Denver senior photos taken this past fall. She had recently moved to Colorado from Arizona. She will be attending Mountain Vista High School. Carley came with several stylish outfits and even brought her prom dress for the session. At the end of the session she even dipped into the lake for a couple of outstanding portraits. Along with her outfits, Carley brought the perfect accessories to compliment and complete her outfits. She brought plenty of necklaces, bracelets, and a hat to give her look the finishing touch for her senior portraits. We highly recommend brings multiple accessories to change the look of your outfit without having to change your outfit. Just a simple jacket, cardigan, scarf, hat, sweater, can change the look of your outfit. This will get you senior portraits many more looks if you can add to your outfit choice.

Carley was excited to start her senior year in Colorado. Sad to leave her friends back home, but loved everything that Colorado has to offer. She told me she was a little concerned about the winters since she lived in such a warm climate. I think she will be surprised at how mild the winters are in Denver.  One day in the winter it can be freezing and then the next day is 60 degrees, and there is alway plenty of sunshine to go along with our winter days.

We will be updating our blog with seniors that we photographed for Class of 2017 over the winter. We are currently looking for Class of 2018 model reps. You can find out all about our Denver senior photos and fill out an application here: http://rokastudios.com/2013-senior-model-reps-wanted/. We are looking for outgoing, stylish, and fun people to be the face of our studio for Class of 2018. We will be closing out applications at the end of the month.

Senior Pictures Denver | Maddy

Senior pictures in Denver

 

Meet Maddy one of our Class of 2017 Model reps. Maddy attends Rocky Mountain High School. We did her senior pictures in Denver near our studio in the Rino Arts District. Maddy is a horse lover and actually trains and competes with her horses. Check back next month to see senior photos we are going to do with her horses. I love incorporating what’s important in each seniors life for their portraits.

My senior year I am most looking forward to delevoping new, close friendships and allowing current ones to flourish.

This summer I am looking forward to traveling to California to go surfing, riding my horses, and starting a new job.

My favorite thing to do in Colorado, besides ride horses of course, is ski with my friends. I love the mountains.

Something people may not know about me is that I want to take a gap year before college to hopefully travel and learn more about my passions.

My favorite memory growing up is camping with family and close friends. We’ve done this multiple times.

My dream vacation would be to travel to Hawaii with my family. I would like to explore the area and surf the legendary waves.

My proudest moment was very recent, I performed with my horse in front of an audience of hundreds at liberty, which means without any ropes holding the horse to me. I moved the audience to tears.

My biggest struggle is still music. It is something I am so passionate about but am also very insecure about. I have to remind myself to not compare myself to others.

I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up, I’m hoping to figure that out soon!

If I won the lottery, I would set aside enough for both mine and my brother’s college tuition, set aside some to give to my parents, donate at least 30% to charity, and maybe use the rest to help myself later in life.

I would like it if schools could change how hey award students. It would be more encouraging to spread the wealth rather than focus on a few extraordinary people.

My favorite thing about school is the challenges it presents me with to help me grow. I also adore the friendships I’ve made.

My favorite tradition with my friends is going to the drive in multiple times during summer.

My current favorite musical artist is James Bay, I love his style.

My favorite concert experience was at the Taste of Fort Collins because it only cost $5 to see Andy Grammar with my best friends, right up close!

My favorite places to shop include PacSun, Forever 21, and American Eagle.

I have a large variety of music, but my favorite jam song is Larger Than Life by Pinkzebra because I think the message it tells is inspiring.

My favorite movies are Star Wars, Endless Summer, and Pitch Perfect.

The colleges I would like to go to are Univeristy of Michigan, Colorado State Univeristy, and CU Boulder. I don’t know what I will major in yet. Possibly music education or equine sciences.

I could not live without music, my horses, or my relationships (friends and family). All of these are vital to my well being and happiness.
