J. Amado Photography
Denver Portraits & Wedding Photographer
Welcome! My name is Jermaine Amado (that's me up there!) and I'm an on-location photographer in Denver Colorado. "On-location" means that we can have the session at an outdoor location or at your home. When scheduling an in-home portrait photography session, I bring my lighting equipment, backdrops, and stands to create a small studio at your home.
There are no additional charges unless you wanted more prints, more time, and if you live 25 miles outside of my 80203 zip code. But my packages are set up so that the time is perfect and you won't need additional prints from me. I am proud to offer all your images (digital negatives) in full resolution and full rights with all my packages.
I have been a photographer since 2004 and specialize in portrait photography. I have since established myself as a local wedding photographer in Denver and now offer affordable wedding photography with the option to add a second photographer.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
When is the best time to have a newborn photography session done? Having the newborn photo session done within the first two weeks is ideal because they still have that "newborn look" and they love to eat and sleep! The younger your baby, the better our chances are of capturing a sleepy baby. I like to aim before the two week mark, but I understand that might not work out for some families. Contact me and let me know when you feel would be best time for our session.
My B-stop, 1.5 hour, package is recommended for newborn photography. But it will likely run around 2 hours because they might need a little extra love and attention (don't worry, no additional charges). All my newborn sessions take place at the comfort of your own home since it's the most comfortable place for a new family. There are many Denver newborn photographers and I appreciate you considering me to capture this moment. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Maternity & Pregnancy Photographer
As a Denver maternity photographer I offer both in-home studio style maternity portraits and on-location maternity photography sessions. The preferred time for a maternity photography session is between 7-8 months. We want a big belly for the photos, but also want you to feel comfortable. If you think that there is a possibility of an early birth, please let me know when you feel would be the best time for the session.
There are many Denver maternity photographers and it's important to choose the right photographer to document this beautiful experience. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Let me know your due date and your thoughts on the location and ideas you might have. There is a discount package available when you schedule a maternity and newborn photography session.

Denver offers wonderful backdrop for family photography! There is so much outdoor beauty that the hardest part might be choosing the perfect location for the family portraits. As a professional on-location Denver family photographer, I am able to bring my equipment to the comfort of your home or we can meet up at your favorite spot around town.
Some Denver family photographers charge a little extra for additional family members. If you schedule a family portrait photography session with me, there are no additional charges for extra family members, as long as we complete our session within the time frame we agreed upon.

Senior Portrait Photographer
It's all about location! The backdrop for your senior pictures should be YOU. I don't have a studio so all my photo sessions are done on location. Pick a spot that best represents you. Let me know what you have in mind and if you need suggestions. Downtown offers a great urban feel to the pictures. If you are wanting a park setting, Denver offers so many amazing parks to have your senior portraits done.
As a senior picture photographer I like to combine lifestyle and traditional portrait photography for your senior photos. Style is key! Bring a couple options for outfits. Different layers and accessories look fantastic (i.e. jacket, scarf, vest, or hat). Clothing is a form of expression and in order to capture YOU, you need to feel great and pick the clothes that represent who you are. If you have props for music, a hobby, or sport you play, bring those along as well.

I started my photography career working as an in-home portrait photographer for a company in California, I gained amazing experience in baby photography. Every week I would have around 20 baby portrait sessions, for nearly 2 years. I met lots of babies! Although it may sound routine, every session was different. Every baby had their own laugh or smile, and it was great! I loved going to work then and I love it now!
If you missed newborn pictures of your baby, I suggest having portraits done after 6 weeks. At this point, for their first baby photos, they should have pretty good control of their head and they start to smile a little more :) Please feel to contact me with any questions or if you wish to schedule a baby photography session.

When searching for Denver wedding photographers, you need to shop around. After you narrow your search down to a few photographers, schedule a time to meet. Talk about your likes and dislikes, your plans for the wedding, and ask them to bring along a full wedding album or more samples of their work. It's important to click with your wedding photographer because they have to click with your friends and family. My focus will be on YOU but I will also work hard to capture the joy your loved ones feel on your wedding day.

Each package comes with an online gallery, your images delivered to you on a disc or USB, and images will be in full resolution with a full release form. You may also customize your package and add a second photographer, a wedding album, or an engagement session.
I want to thank you for your time and consideration. I wish you luck on your journey and please feel free to contact me to inquire more information about my wedding photography services.

The difference between child photography and baby photography is that we are no longer in control. Children have gained full control of their mobility and they're always on the go! They have the attention span of a 2 year old!! :)
For child photography it's best that the photo session consist of activities and the least amount of "posing" possible so they could stay entertained. When scheduling a children's photography session, we should plan on a time when the children are happiest. If you have any questions about please feel free to contact me.
