CPAC’s popular Family Portrait Day at the Denver Botanic Gardens returns October 6. This year, we offer both digital and one-of-a-kind tintype packages. A film option is also available.
Family Portrait Day offers families the chance to have their portrait taken by professional photographers on the pristine Botanic Gardens grounds. Packages come with full permission to reproduce images as many times and in whatever formats a family chooses. Proceeds support operating costs for CPAC and our event partners, the Denver Botanic Gardens.
Digital: Cost – $250 for a 30 minute session and 12-15 high-resolution images chosen for the family by their photographer. Open to groups of up to 8 people. Photographers confirmed so far include Natalie Beck, Roddy MacInnes, Richard Peterson, and Anthony Camera.
Film: John Davenport (35mm and medium format offered). Same price and package as Digital.
Tintype: Cost – $65 per 15 minute session and a one-of-a-kind wet plate photograph. This year’s we feature two of Denver’s best tin-type photographers, German Murillo and Denis Roussel, who will demonstrate the century-old technique of creating one-of-a-kind wet plate photographs. Sessions can be pre-booked; walk-up sessions will be available if space is available.
