Meet Tegan


I strive for perfection in my craft, am obsessed with great light, and I'm always aiming to perfectly marry your home style with our range of products, from rustic wooden wall prints to modern metal collages. I love being able to create custom art for my clients who don't just want great photography, but want it displayed beautifully in their home.



I'm happy to have a BFA in Photojournalism from RIT, and went on to assist commercial & wedding photographers in NYC and Boston after graduation.  Being on set with celebrities & big brand product companies inspired me to strive for advertising-worthy photos in all my pursuits.  After working a few years in that industry, I decided to open my own portrait & wedding business in 2011, where I could bring together a distinctive mix of style, story, & technical prowess.  The result: Colorful Life Studios.


I am an ANIMAL lover!  Dogs, cats, reptiles, farm animals, amphibians... Colorado wildlife... I love them all!  Growing up near farms & in the woods, I couldn't be without animals in my life! I specialize in shooting styled pets & newborns in the greater Denver area, but love to travel for sessions. 


 I balance my pet & newborn work with pursuing another passion of mine... my commercial business, Tegan K Studios.   I'm also an active member of the Colorado chapter of ASMP, and believe highly in continuing education. 

I will walk you through putting together all the right pieces for a great portrait photography experience, because at the end of the day when all the work is done, it's nice to say that that the details were taken care of & you also had a great time.

I'd love to hear from you!
