Acouple of weeks ago I met up with this cute family to get their family pictures created at the boardwalk by Evergreen Lake House. Colorado isn't known much for an abundance of great lakes which is why this place is such a gem. The boardwalk is a nice location for birdwatching but I also love to use it for photo sessions. It's a great place to capture a bit of the mountains, pretty cattails and other plants and a little bit of a lake too.
Check out how nice the turquoise in this family's outfits looks against all of the fall color. It's such a nice contrast with all of the warm colors!
This is the third time I have had the pleasure of photographing Jen & Alex this year. We did their engagement photos at New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins this past May and then we photographed one side of their family in June. About a week ago we met up again to photograph a different side of the family. With all of this practice posing in front of the camera, they're going to be professional models by the time we get to their wedding at Chatfield next year! This time we opted for the colorful Clear Creek History Park in Golden. I really enjoy photographing this group. They are so friendly and joke around a lot. They're one of those families who really enjoy hanging out together and treat each other like friends.
They also did a fantastic job coordinating their outfits. The bright mustard yellow and dark purple stands out nicely with the fall foliage. And speaking of fall foliage, it looks like it's still going pretty strong here in the Denver area. If you're family needs a new photo for this year's holiday card give me a call or email. I still have availability for family portrait sessions in November. You can reach me at email@example.com or 720-771-7314
I've been taking families who are visiting from out of town to a place near Frisco, Colorado in Summit County called Sapphire Point for awhile now. It is a beautiful place in the mountains overlooking the gorgeous Blue River Arm of the Dillon Reservoir. The mountain views there are incredible and it's just a short two minute walk to get to the overlook from the parking lot. I was so excited when I first heard from Lia that she and Steve were planning an intimate wedding there in the fall. I've always thought it would be the perfect place for a small wedding ceremony and I was pretty excited that I would get to photograph their nuptials there.
The weather here in Colorado sometimes gets a little crazy once October hits and it was pretty rainy and miserable in the days leading up to their wedding. But Lia & Steve must be incredibly lucky people because the rain held off for not just the ceremony but for all of their portrait time afterward too! It was a little chilly of course but that's a small price to pay for a ceremony where no umbrellas were required. After the ceremony at Sapphire Point we all headed over to the 5th Avenue Grille in downtown Frisco where the staff did an excellent job keeping the drinks full and the food plentiful. It was a perfect day with friends and family celebrating their love for each other.

Ihad the best time photographing these adorable kids featured on the blog today. Not only are they incredibly cute and photogenic, but they were just the sweetest too! They live in Arizona and were road-tripping their way through Colorado. They stopped and explored Mesa Verde the day before we met up for their photos and I'm sure they were just itching to get out of the car and run around. Good thing Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs is the perfect place for stretching your legs. We wandered around the main pathway and the kids got to climb on the red rocks. We even saw multiple deer while we were out making pictures that day. Garden of the Gods is by far one of the most beautiful natural wonders in all of Colorado and in the fall it somehow turns even more pretty. I love the way the majestic red rocks stack up against the blue mountains with colorful desert plants growing everywhere. I'm glad that we were able to photograph the kids in front of a nice blue mountain backdrop which is what their mom was looking for. And I just love the contrast of their bright purple clothing against all of the red in the scenery too.
