Photos By Adena bio picture
  • Hi, I'm Adena. I am a photographer in Arvada, Colorado.

    I specialize in high school senior & family photography and if you know me, have been on a shoot with me, or even chatted for a few, you know that I LOVE what I do.

    I also have a boudoir side of my business that I keep separate for obvious reasons...make sure to check that out too!

    Somehow you have made your way to my website, and I'm excited to have you here! Take a look around, I hope you love what you see!

Its been so cold here in Colorado! I had to do a little #tbt post to this beauty in a bubble bath. She’s one and she’s so loved!

#adenashootsvegas Part 2!

I am so so thankful for my clients! Whether I have known them for years or just a few minutes, they let me into their lives and share such precious moments with me. Here are a couple more families from my last trip to Las Vegas for fall family sessions! Both of these families did such a good job with coordinating outfits and choosing locations that fit their personalities. Their kids were perfectly behaved, the lighting was glorious, what can I say, I love my job!

After all of the perfect cheeses I was getting from this gorgeous little girl, I made her giggle so hard trying NOT to smile. So sweet!

For this family we went urban! I love downtown Las Vegas and I just love this family so much!


Dancing Beauty – Arvada Senior Photographer

Oh my goodness I had so much fun with this beauty and her momma. When we shoot 2 hours, 2 locations we have SO many options, variety, and so much more time to play! Mom was there to help with anything and everything, which included at walking barefoot downtown at one point! She is AMAZING! And this senior…gorgeous, great style, such a sweetheart and a beautiful smile. I couldn’t ask for more! Enjoy!

Fall Families! #adenashootsvegas

Oh how I love that I get to travel back to my hometown and see clients, friends and family a few times a year. We get a chance to catch up, laugh, cry, reminisce and even dream together. I have the best clients turned friends, or the other way around, in the world. That’s all there is to it. That being said, there is never enough time and there are NEVER enough sessions! But I have to show off a few of these clients from my last trip. I have known them all for years and it is such an honor to capture their growing families again. Here is the first…one of my long time, closest friend’s A-freaking-DORABLE children!

Beautiful Bella – Arvada Senior Photographer

I can’t even begin to explain how much I am enjoying this year’s senior sessions! These ladies are just so gorgeous, and not just their faces! They truly are as beautiful inside as they are out. Then put them in the fall Colorado scenery…it can’t get much better then this.

Bella means beautiful and let me tell you, she wears it well! I had so much fun with this pretty lady. I LOVE adventurous seniors! She didn’t mind hiking all over the trail and even putting her toes in the water. I think you’ll be able to see why I loved this session so much…
