“Barbara was amazing! The whole experience was perfect and so unique. The wonderful thing about her is the time she spends to get to know her clients prior to taking the photos. She is very deliberate and thoughtful with all of her actions. A wonderful business owner and a true creative! I bought the whole package because I couldn’t just choose a few. I am looking forward to finding these beautiful images and enjoying them around my home forever!" - JESSICA

ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi and welcome to my site! I am a fine art portrait photographer in Boulder, Colorado with over 25 years of photography experience and have earned the title of Accredited Portrait Master Associate Photographer. My passion is capturing beautiful memories and moments in time. With echoes of Renaissance and Baroque old master paintings, I can capture your individuality and beauty in a timeless and original fine art portrait for you to display on your walls at home or at your workplace.

My goal is to create photographs that are works of art, and which capture the best possible version of you; portraits that make a bold statement and that have a sense of timelessness. In my images, I love to capture mood and emotion. Through my subjects eyes, is the way to their soul. Currently, my portrait sessions are held in a studio in north Boulder.

For professional and aspiring photographers, I will be offering workshops across the U.S. and abroad. Stay tuned for future workshop dates. Please contact me if you have any questions.

“I had been watching Barbara's work for a little over a year now and the more I saw, the more I wanted to have family pictures and professional headshots done by her. It is an amazing experience to have your hair and makeup professionally done. It is a fun experience to dress up and do things you wouldn't normally do. And she is such a perfectionist and artist - it is fun to watch her work and master the lighting so it is just right. That is just the sitting part - and then the real magic comes into play in the editing and making it look like paintings - true art! Family heirlooms for sure!" - KRISTEN
