When my dance student Sage said she wanted Paint Mines senior photos, I knew we were going to get some really awesome shots! This bizarre, funky geological spot is one of the most interesting places I’ve photographed. The Paint Mines are named for the colorful clays, caused by oxidized iron compounds, that were collected by Indigenous Peoples to make paint. The park features fantastic geological formations including spires and hoodoos. These form through erosive action that creates incised gullies and exposed layers of selenite clay and jasper. It’s not that far from Denver and it’s only about 30 minutes east of Colorado Springs.

I met Sage in 2019 when I first moved to Colorado! She was only in 9th grade, but immediately caught my eye with her beautiful ballet technique and work ethic. Now, Sage celebrates her senior year at Denver Christian School, class of 2023. She hasn’t quite decided on her college plans. But she is considering interior design because she finds it interesting. And she would enjoy it as a career.

Sage’s favorite colors are light green, white, beige, and brown, which are all perfectly displayed in her outfit choices. In her spare time, she likes reading and arts & crafts. Also, Sage has a lovely creative eye, too, and we both had fun ideas for artistic photos!
