Mountain Aspen Tree Family Photography | Evergreen Colorado

I
had so much fun photographing this family up Squaw Pass road in Evergreen, Colorado last week. We went to a location full of beautiful Aspen trees and the shades of blue that the family wore looked perfect with the mountain backdrop there. We played some games and had a lot of fun together while creating these portraits. All of the cousins were running around together and laughing and playing in between photos. I have to say, I really love that getting together for a session not only makes great photos together but provides some good quality time together as a family. My favorite part was when the older siblings were posing together they suddenly started cracking up because their dad was attempting to get a smile out of them by mooning them. Whatever works to get that natural smile, dad! I'll take it! Here are just a handful of some of my favorites.

Vail Valley Colorado Family Photography | Eagle River Preserve in Edwards

I
drove out to the Vail Valley and photographed this family last week and I have to say they were so much fun to work with! There was lots of laughing and good attitudes about going along with all of my silly games. We decided to go to the Eagle River Preserve which I have not been to before and it was perfect. There were so many beautiful native plants with lots of nice walking paths and nature to use. There was even a really pretty (tiny) pond. And of course, access to the Eagle River for some pretty photos with it in the backdrop. This family has been visiting the same home in Edwards, Colorado for the past 7 years for family vacations. I truly love the idea of families who are spread out all over the country coming together for a little rest and relaxation as well as some family bonding time. There is just something really great about spending a week or two together away from the worries of everyday life and reconnecting and getting to know each other again. I remember doing this as a kid at my grandparent's house with my cousins when I was younger and there is nothing like having built in friends who just happen to be your family too. This place in Edwards has become a little bit like a second home to all of them and since it was just down the street a little ways from the Eagle River Preserve we decided to end the session back at the vacation home. There was a pretty little Aspen tree area in the backyard and we went down by the river at their place for some end of the evening pictures too. What a fun and happy clan, they truly made my job so easy!

Breckenridge Family Vacation Photos | Backyard Family Photos in Colorado

V
ickie contacted me to see if she and her family could get some family photos created while they were all on vacation together here in sunny Colorado. She and her husband wanted to get some pictures of the whole family together since they are all spread apart these days. We scheduled the photos for 10 am to keep a happy baby and were planning to use the inside of the home in front of the huge fireplace since outside at 10 am is not usually very workable due to the positioning of the sun at that time of day. But I know Vickie really wanted to use the pretty outdoors if it was possible. When I arrived at their rental home I realized that there was just enough of a pretty woodsy backyard with some wildflowers in it that we could use that would also work with the direction of the sunlight. It's pretty fantastic when all the pieces to the photography pie start lining up! The best part was when the parents of the sweet little baby were able to give me just enough helpful hints to get a few little smiles out of her! I'd say it was another successful family photoshoot!

Dog-Lover Mountain Engagement Photos | Historic Georgetown Colorado

I
met Tara when she started skating for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls back in the day. I was so excited for her when she met Ryan because it seemed like they fell in love so quickly and I'd never seen her so happy before! They've built a very good life for themselves together in Denver these past few years and have quite a big family with 4 dogs. They really wanted to bring all four of them to their session since they are such a big part of their life. Our furry friends are family afterall! They are getting married this September and it was time to get their engagement photos done. At first they were considering doing them in the city in a neat urban area but after a lot of thought they decided that they were really more into nature and the mountains. So we headed up the I-70 corridor to the beautiful, very photogenic, and historic little city of Georgetown, Colorado. We started off near the dam and the lake before heading into town where we took full advantage of all of the old pretty storefronts and houses. Toward the end of the evening as the sun was setting we drove up Guanella Pass a little bit to find some more natural surroundings for their last photos. I absolutely love that we were able to get some classic Colorado photos for them next to the South Clear Creek mountain stream. Overall I'd say this session was a huge success! How could it not be with all of those sweet doggie faces?
