About Mike Bateman Photography
Photographs are treasured family heirlooms, let me capture those treasures for you!
I’m a on-location, natural light portrait photographer in Windsor, Colorado specializing in fun, beautiful, fresh custom photography in Northern Colorado. Working on location with natural light helps create unlimited opportunities and possibilities for me to tell your story and capture the moments that reflect you, your family and your memories.
Whether it be photos of kids, seniors or families, I provide fun, exciting, relaxed and stress free photo sessions. I believe the best portraits are when people are comfortable and relaxed. My casual fun approach helps bring out your genuine emotion and natural expressions to help me capture each person’s unique personality. I’ll turn those portraits into memories you’ll treasure.
While I still take the conventional/traditional portraits, I also like to be creative and explore to take your images to a new level. Portraits should do more than just capture a smiling face. It should capture your emotions and your personality.Every session includes a pre-shoot consultation and questionnaire so that I get to meet and know you, discuss clothing and location(s), etc., so I can meet your needs and wishes. All sessions include both Black & White as well as color. I will assure you a beautiful selection of exquisite portraits. For every session, a minimum of 2 hours is reserved as your time. Often we may not need that much time, however, this assures you will have ample time to allow your children to become comfortable. All sessions include a viewing appointment following your portrait session for your family to view and order your final portraits.
In my photography, I love to use the Colorado landscape as a backdrop for my images. Some of my favorite places to photograph clients are the numerous parks and open space parks along the front range, Rocky Mountain National Park or along the Big Thompson and Poudre Rivers. I try to use organic, natural props in our sittings, shooting outdoors whenever possible depending on natural light to garner genuine images. I love to have fun with my photography! That’s why I shoot seniors and families – such fun, happy occasions. When shooting a session, I work to have fun with you all, to set up fun poses, to get children playing – all to provide those natural moments.
Set up your portrait session or event. Together, we can turn those natural moments into your genuine images.
