  • WELCOME!

    Welcome to Michele Schanker Photography!

    We are a modern and contemporary photography studio based in Thornton, CO. However we serve most of the Northern Denver Metro area including Boulder.

    We specialize in kids and infant portraits. But we are also available for your wedding, family, and high school senior photography needs.

    We offer all custom photography sessions. Meaning we find out what you like/don't like, a special location that you would like to shoot at, and if you have any products in mind. This is not a box studio experience we are committed to personalizing all sessions to your wants and needs.

Hot Cocoa Sessions {Breckenridge Photographer}

I have been doing these short sessions in Breckenridge Colorado for the last week or so. They are so darn cute. For this session I had an older kid so I brought my wooden sled along. I love this sled for winter pictures.

Morning Photoshoots in Breckenridge

Here are some sneak peeks of what the lighting is like in Breckenridge for winter morning photoshoots. The first location is the well know Sapphire Point. There is some nice light here but the mountains are very bright.

This next location is at the Sawmill Museum on Boreas Pass Road.

Here is my third location in Breckenridge. This location the mountains are to the north so you can get some better mountain views in the morning. You can also get some forest shots as there is a trailhead here.

All of these photos were taken around 9-9:30am in order to give you a good idea of what your pictures will look like in the morning versus afternoon/evening. It is also important to note that mornings are much colder so if you choose a morning shoot please make sure you are prepared for the weather. My daughter was very lucky the days we went out and her sweater was just fine.
