Colorado Style Family Photography by Benjamin Skigen

Denver Maternity Photographer Benjamin Skigen

Howdy! I'm Ben, a portrait photographer from Lakewood, Colorado. 

Families are one of my favorite subjects to photograph; as a father of two beautiful children, I know how quickly time passes and there is only ever one chance to capture the glow of your family as they are right now.

When you commission me, I'll create a set of pictures which you can look back on for years to fondly remember this incredible period of your family's life. 

My family photography style is tender, candid, and organic. I shoot with a combination of natural/available light and strobe to create professional maternity portraits which impress all who view them. 

My clients will enjoy a professional, low-stress, and fun family photography experience. 

All sessions include the shoot, editing, & digital files

Family shoots include at least 60 minutes of photography (may be extended).

How Does a Family Shoot Work?

After you've purchased your session (below),a family photography experience with me begins with a brief consultation. During this discussion, we'll talk about where the shoot will occur, what you need to prepare for, and other details about the shoot. On the day of the shoot, you'll be confident and comfortable knowing what to expect.

During the shoot, I will gently direct you into poses, and also creating opportunities for moments of  candid spontaneity. There is an energy flow between a photographer and his subject, and I strive to inject it with positive, happy energy. If you have ideas for the perfect family photography, maybe something you saw on Pinterest or in a magazine, I can help you make it happen!

After the shoot, the images will be carefully reviewed and I'll pick the best shots. These 'keeper' images are individually processed; cropping, balancing, touching up any distracting elements, then processing them with Hollywood-class image enhancement tools to infuse character and personality. You'll receive three different processing variants of the images too; color, black and white, and my signature color style.

Your finished family photos are delivered via a private, password-protected online gallery, typically within 14 days. At that point, you can purchase prints, files, canvas, or choose from many other high-quality print products.

I’ve always hated getting headshots taken, and have never had one I liked. But Ben made it easy, and now I have a headshot I’m excited about!”
