Personal Product Post | Denver Colorado Family Photographer

Happy Friday yall!
I just wanted to show everyone my awesome canvas I got in last week:)
I know alot of people think 8x10's are big, but they really aren't...
I wanted to show you my small wall with a 20x30 inch gallery wrapped canvas. Seeing all that space going on makes this print very tiny to me and I now must go bigger! Bigger is always better in prints. Always remember that interior designers say you should fill atleast 50% of your wall.




This is a great quality Canvas and I just love it. I know theres alot of those do it yourself canvas labs out there that make it easy for everyone to make their own canvas', but I wouldn't guarantee that your print or even the colors of your print will look exactly like the original image and I highly recommend that you purchase specialty products like these through your Photographer, so you get an awesome product to display on your walls.

Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Catch Up | Denver Colorado Family Photographer

Im either in Blog maddness and post like 4 or 5 posts in one single day or theres a blank 2 weeks because of being so busy here in the studio. I need to find a happy medium and try to post 2 or 3 times a week. Does anyone else Blogging do that? lol

Here is a storysquare of Miss Peyton from her portrait session a couple months ago. She wants to be a model when she grows up. I know she will be a great one. Isn't she just gorgeous? I told her she looked way older than her age. She was also brave enough to change into a cute summer outfit that cold morning. There was snow still around and like 20 degrees outside! I wish I could show you all of her images because I love every single one of them!

Class of 2013 and 2014! | Denver Colorado High School Senior Photographer

Since this school year is coming to an end and all my lovely class of 2012 are soon to graduate, I decided to do something new this coming up year and put together 4 collections specifically for you awesome soon to be Seniors!!

Model sessions are open for those in their Junior year and they get 2 sessions and tons of cool free stuff! But I will have to go into detail about all that awesomeness in a future post :)

Spring Product Line! | Denver CO Custom Portrait Photographer

Spring time and warm weather are soon upon us. I've been spring cleaning at home and in the Studio too and also going through my product catalog and getting rid of a couple products and changing it up this year with some new items. I won't have time to post ALL the newness today but will show you a little peek :)

I am bringing in a Grow With Me collection for my wall series, so you will have the option to get 3 or 4 sets of Square Floating Wraps for your home and add to them at your following sessions. This is great for families with multiple children, those that purchase a Baby'S First Year collection or any other portrait session!





Floating Wraps have a foam block on the backside that gives it a floating appearance on your home walls. I'm starting my Grow With Me collection in my dining room :) I'll post the images soon.

Portrait Folios are now available for my High School Seniors! 5x7 and 8x10 folios are offered with 2 inside images and an outside cover of your choice.


iPhone cases!!! These 8 templates along with 10 others will be available for purchase after your session:) They are available with any session but some of my lucky High School Seniors will be able to get it for FREE:) Cases fit iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and iPod touch.


 Make the set complete by getting a custom screen wallpaper and locked wallpaper with your favorite image from your session on your iPhone too!! (6 other wallpapers are available)


Custom license plates for my Seniors! 6x12 vibrant metal with gloss finish. These have an ultra hard scratch resistant surface that is waterproof and weatherproof!

I've got tons more newness to share, but I will save that for more posts soon :)


Aireus Class of 2012 | Denver CO High School Senior Photographer

Its not too late for Senior photos if you are graduating this year! I know alot of the Seniors can be pretty busy their Senior year and some come in towards the end of the school year for their portraits and thats OK! The ideal time for Senior portraits is spring or summer prior to your Senior year or even in your Junior year! We can get some gorgeous portraits in the warmer weather here in the Denver area, unless you want to do something different and do winter time with the snow like Aireus. We got some fun winter portraits downtown after it snowed :)





We have custom Senior Grad cards for guys and girls in many different styles! Make sure you order your custom cards so your Grad invites stand out in the crowd! Flat, Folded and Tri-Fold cards available.

We're Stylin' | Denver Colorado Boudoir Photographer

Brandy Caruso Photography is happy to announce that we have joined up with Samantha of Lady Charm Artistry to bring you professional hair and makeup :) You don't have to book her just for your Boudoir Session, but for any session you would like to feel gorgeous in! I must say she does amazing work!

Meet Samantha Koch...

1) What made you want to do hair and make up or become a cosmetologist?
From the time I was young I remember doing my dolls and barbies hair, and being totally fascinated with watching my mom do her makeup. I started doing my own hair around 8 years old, using half a bottle of hairspray daily (had to get the big hair), and when I was finally allowed to wear makeup I was always playing with my look. So, when I got older it was just a natural path for me to take!

 2) What schooling/life experience do you have in your profession? Years working?
After doing a lot of hair and makeup on my friends growing up, I attended Paul Mitchell the School in 2003-2004 and obtained my cosmetology license. They held makeup classes regularly throughout my education there, so I was able to get some of the basics in application techniques while in school, and the rest has been through a lot of practice. I have worked in several different salons, and on and off with Laura Mercier cosmetics, and also carry a wide variety of products from many different brands in my professional kit.

 3) What do you feel your strengths are with hair and make up?
I feel like I pick up new things very quickly. I am also able to take styles or makeup techniques from pictures and copy them almost perfectly.

 4) What is your favorite style of hair and make up to do?
I don't know that I have a favorite style. I really enjoy being able to create any style, from any era, or from any concept. I like variety and new challenges.

5) Favorite thing about what you do:
I love seeing the transformation! As much fun as it is to work on a high-fashion project, with a model and fashion photographer, I enjoy taking real people and creating a look for them. So many women have no idea how beautiful they are, and it's so fun to see their reaction at the end of their hair and makeup styling!

 6) What are your favorite brands of make up to use?
I love so many brands, and I think each of them have their own strengths. I love MAC eyeshadows because I feel they are very pigmented; I think Laura Mercier foundations are fantastic and they have something for every skin type; I love Cover Girl mascaras! I think they work for pretty much everyone!

 7) What sets you apart from other hair and make up artists?
Not only do I feel that it's important to be skilled and up to date on your techniques, and continue to improve in your craft - I feel like it's just as important to be someone that people want to work with. Whether it be a photographer or a client - it makes an impression if you are flexible, friendly, reliable, and that you are someone that people want to hire because of who you are

If you would like to add makeup and hair to your session with Brandy Caruso Photography please let me know! We will be adding makeup to our Boudoir Packages because having professional makeup and hair makes all the difference compared to doing hair and maekup yourself. You can add so much drama to your images, and not have a look that you usually rock on a daily basis. I love Samantha's work so much, I even had her do my hair and makeup! I had a Boudoir session and just to show you how great she is, here is a headshot with hair, makeup and lashes...
