There are so many talented Denver photographers, so we always get excited when a new artist sends us what they captured at Denver Photo Collective! Rae Marie Photography is a Denver based photographer that is all about capturing beautiful moments as they take place.  "The "tagline" of Rae Marie Photography is 'inspired imagery for the perfectly imperfect.' This helps to explain what my business is about, packaged up in a single phrase! You do your thing while I document it beautifully & professionally, while occasionally chiming in to help you relax."

"My goal in wedding, family, and newborn photography is to capture you as you truly are, not a stiff and perfectly posed version. I want to bring laugher, movement, love, and carefree imperfection to each moment in your photos, so you can remember life as being full of joy.”

"I aim to capture the true colors in the photos, the true emotion behind an image, and a burst of fun in each session."

"My husband and I moved to the fantastic city of Denver in January of 2017. Binge reading fiction books, watching New Girl, and attempting not to get sunburned every time I go on a hike with my dog in Denver are a few of my favorite activities! In three words, I am: Vibrant | Emotive | Genuine."

All photos were taken by Rae Marie Photography at Denver Photo Collective.

Back to School With Alice and Ames | Denver Photo Collective

When summer months draw to a close often times frantic mothers caravan to strip malls and flood the doors of popular retailers all in the spirit of conforming to the “back to school,” token shopping practices. I’m certainly not pointing fingers here, or even indicating that such a tradition is wrong. In our quest to conform to a lifestyle of minimalism I’ve revisited the needs versus wants argument. Do our kids need a million outfits or do they need a few pieces of clothing that will actually last after one game of tag on the playground?

Alice and Ames is notorious for their classic designs with a whimsical touch. Their dresses are of the utmost quality, in fact their quality is so impressive that we own eight of them! These pieces are essentially fade proof and are more than able to handle all the adventures little girls embark on. My little Lucy loves the playful nature of each piece. Ballet backs, the world's most amazing twirly skirts, and a timeless design make these beautiful dresses a staple for any closet.

Lucy goes to the most adorable preschool, complete with classic "little red schoolhouse." Happy Valley Preschool is such a quality school because their curriculum emphasizes a hands on learning approach gained by participating in fun activities such as, pony rides, and farm "chores." There's no test of durability like that of one on the farm. These dresses literally survive dirt, animals, pre-k- expeditions, and a million cycles of washing. As a parent I appreciate the durability that Alice and Ames wardrobe pieces provide Such quality simply cannot be found in major retail stores.

We absolutely love photographing brands that we believe in, and that we feel comfortable recommending to our various audiences. We love the versatility that is easily achievable within the confines of the Denver Photo Collective. This back to school shoot is a perfect example of the unique dynamic the studio offers. The studio is literally a blank canvas ready to help your vision come to life.

We would love to see you at the Denver Photo Collective. If you are interested in reserving a date and time to capture your unique vision, please visit the website to book! We would also love if you would join us on Instagram.

Meet the Holmans | Denver Family Photography

We were so lucky when renowned film photographer, Andriya Rances, wanted to shoot our family! On her recent visit to Denver she expressed interest in working together and like any sane person would, I jumped at the chance to be in front of her lens. Andriya is absolutely incredible and what she does. She has an incredible talent for evoking a nostalgic sense of timeless moments.

I loved how methodical Andryia was about molding us into each new pose. She was so graceful and and patient and made us feel comfortable in our own skin.  

Doing this session with Andryia also made me appreciate once again how unique and convenient doing family photos in the studio is.  We love how calm studio family sessions are. One major benefit provides children a contained space for them to roam and wander in between shots that require their presence.

Another benefit is the lack of guess work that studio sessions demand on the behalf of Mother Nature. There's never the scare of rain, wind or snow, and thanks to electricity red noses are not a common view amongst the little ones.  Because of the north facing windows the light is always perfect any time of day.  

The Studio is also equipped with a space for getting ready. The studio also  has four rooms which include, an entry greeting room, a small studio, a large studio and a changing room. We absolutely love the versatility our studio offers for the families that choose to have their photographs taken there with the wonderful photographers who frequent our space.

We would love to see you at the Denver Photo Collective. If you are interested in reserving a date and time to capture your unique vision, please visit the website to book! We would also love if you would join us on Instagram.

Land of Nod Birthday | Denver Photo Collective

We absolutely love this shoot! What do you get when you combine two adorable best friends, a handful of details that speak to the essence of pure boyhood and sprinkle adorned cake? The result is definitely not lacking in fun nor cuteness!   

Jack and Rai are the best of friends and we couldn’t help but capture the authentic nature of their friendship amidst a playful scene curated by my very talented friend  Alana and I put together. Alana and I put this shoot together to celebrate the boyish obsession with trucks and cars that these boys possess.

Can you believe that that entire mural and car track is made completely of washi tape?! It was so fun to create something that we knew would evoke real emotion from these two sweet boys which made photographing them all the more fun!

We absolutely love the products from the Land of Nod. Their style is absolutely whimsical and their products consist of high-quality children’s furniture with a timeless finish. These adorable wooden cars and table are perfect examples of this notion.

We would love to see you at the Denver Photo Collective. We love the versatility that is easily achievable within the confines of the Denver Photo Collective.

Chasing Windmills | Denver Photo Collective Brand Photoshoot

We are so excited to introduce another favorite brand we were able to host at the Denver Photo Collective. Chasing Windmills allows Mother Nature to provide the soulful base of everything they create. This base is compiled of a very unique wool called, "merino wool." This wool is naturally soft, breathable in it's nature and genuinely lightweight. All these components make using merino wool a truly ideal fabric for little ones in every season.

Chasing Windmills' color palette choice, and whimsical designs were created to stand the test of seasons and even years. Their products are extremely well made to last beyond the toddler stages of one child. Their brand promotes the ideology that their products can be passed down and reused.

The owners, Sarah and JP, explain that  Chasing Windmills was founded on the vision of a "journey with an open heart." They reason that their brand inspires chasing ideals that are bigger than yourself, embracing optimism in the face of cynicism, and living with the intent to be our best selves which will in turn encourage our children to be their best selves, which will ultimately lead to a better all-around world.

We love the playful designs that speak to the outdoor lover in all of us. We love the organic nature of Chasing Windmills and the ideology behind their unique perspectives and designs. Thank you Chasing Windmills for allowing our studio to play host to your beautiful brand creations!
