  • 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.

MSP Referral System

Michele Schanker Photography is proud to announce our new referral system. Here is how it works. It is totally simple!

Every client that books a session with Michele Schanker Photography is entitled to a referral bonus(s).

Essentially you will receive a $25 print credit good for your last session (or a future session) for every referral that books with Michele Schanker Photography.

Example: If you send two (2) people/families in my direction, they both mention they were referred by you, and they each book a session then you will receive $50 ($25 for each one booked) in print credit. Make sense? If you have questions, please feel free to send me an email.

In the very near future there will also be print ordering incentives too, so keep an eye out and I will post that information shortly.

Now since I hate posting without a photo, I thought I’d include some fall shots. These were taken in the Eastern Sierras while my husband and celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary with an out of town weekend.




Pumpkins and More Pumpkins

Today my husband and I tagged along with some friends to take their kids to the pumpkin patch. We really did have a  lot of fun, and I figured it would make for some great photos. I even figured I could practice my shooting techniques in the bright afternoon california sun. It really was tricky to get good photos of kids running around in that kind of lighting, but I managed to nail down some techniques that worked pretty well. Here is the end result.







More From the Getty Center

Here’s a few more from last weekends engagement session at the Getty Center.




I love this one! The color of Sarah’s shirt and the green grass makes the photo so vibrant!







Congratulations Sarah and Josh!

Sarah and Josh

Sorry, I’m a bit late on posting my latest engagement session. I like to try and get photos posted as soon as possible, but just haven’t had a lot of free time this week.

Sarah and Josh are getting married next spring in North Carolina. However they live in Lancaster while they are going to school and they were in need of some engagement photos. So we decided to do the shoot at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Seriously…an awesome place for photos. Lots to work with. In fact I had planned to do some more shots, but we ran out of time. I was totally thrilled to be doing photos at the Getty. Anyway I plan to post more, but here is one for now.
