Laurie specializes in custom, on-site, natural light, lifestyle photography. Laurie’s style is to mix portrait poses with photojournalistic, candid shots to create lasting images that are interesting and unique. She captures your family with creativity, understanding and patience. Photo shoots are casual and fun, personal and professional. She has a talent for bringing out the personalities and authentic qualities of her clients.
Rendition Studios began in 2008 in Denver, Colorado. Laurie Callahan is the primary photographer and owner. Laurie began her photography business capturing newborns at Rose Medical hospital. Prior to that, her extensive background working in the architecture and city planning industry taught her to engage with structure, composition and light from a unique perspective. You will not see the same shot twice because each session is a new opportunity to create and explore the art of photography with you. This work is important to her, it is her full time job and she loves it.
Laurie has such a warm and inviting way about her. She brings out our personalities in our photos. I'll never let anyone else do our photos!
I have worked with Laurie on many occasions as a backup photographer, as well as been a client in front of the lens. Laurie is beyond talented, to say the least! She is professional and kind-hearted, and has a wonderful way of connecting with people through the camera. I would definitely recommend hiring Laurie for family or wedding photography, you won't be disappointed!
I hope that my clients have spent some time on my website and social networking sites to see my work and know I am the right fit. They can then email me with a descrition of their photoshoot and some date/time/location hopes and dreams.
I took my first photography class over ten years ago while studying abroad in Sydney, Australia. I will take any excuse to travel, so… I studied in Paris (France), Sydney (Australia), Austin (Texas), and Manoa (Hawaii) before earning my degree in Environmental Design at CU Boulder. My love for art and design led me to work in the architecture industry before following my heart to photography full time in 2008. After many classes, workshops, second shooting gigs, and odd photo jobs… Rendition studios was born. There is no looking back, this is what I am meant to do.

I became a photographer after my mother passed away. I had always wanted to do sometihng like this but losing someone important makes you crave images they reflect that relationship.
I work with a lot of small famlies and families with newborn babies, start up businesses, seniors, and engaged couples. I capture 5-10 weddings a year and balance that with a variety of other shoots.
I volunteer with Red Thread Photography capturing famlies who choose to adopt. It is a special time to celebrate and I love knowing that these famliies will have these moments captured to look back on.
Ask to see a full shoot, not just the select images posted online. Make sure they are a full time photographer so that you know they will be responsive and that this is their career, not a hobby. If their reputation depends on doing a good job, you are more likely to get a good product.
What kind of backgrounds are they hoping for?
What days/times work best for their family, in general?
