Day-in-the-Life of a Denver Lifestyle Photographer

I’m not under any illusion that you all need a detailed play-by-play of my daily life, but I have gotten a few questions about it. Plus, there is a huge misconception that I spend 95% of my time photographing sessions and, so my life must be absolutely awesome and carefree, and I do nothing else, here’s a very small look into what life looks like at LGP. By no means do I actually stick to this schedule day in and day out, but you get the idea.

What about days with sessions booked?

Because my sessions range from one to six hours for family, newborn and couples, those days are usually more about the session than anything else. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m an introvert, that having your brain fire on all-cylinders can be tiring, or a combination of both, but I don’t usually do much else other than workout, photograph, and upload the images on long session days. I always think I’ll get more done, usually plan to do more, but my brain tends to be fried.
