Kala’s Senior Session | Colorado Springs Photographers

A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to shoot with Shayla Marin Photography on another senior session. Shayla and I are two peas in a pod when it comes to photography and photographing! It’s crazy how much we think a like and often have the same vision on a shoot. We have started our kick off with the senior class of 2018 and we had such a beautiful model-Kala. She was flawless with her modeling and did such a great job! We decided to do the this session in both digital and film. Shayla shot the digital while I did the film, and the turn out was fantastic! The location that we chose was near the studio. Old Farm Park. Here you can easily hike the plateaus and get a beautiful views of Colorado Springs and of Pikes Peak. It also have a dessert like feel to it, and you have to watch out for the cactus! Another cool thing about this park is that they have an old silo that we were able to get inside, and Shayla had a cool idea of using a smoke bomb with an umbrella-and these shots came out incredible! We started the shoot right about 4pm in the afternoon and into golden hour.  Here are some of our favorites:
