Gross Reservoir Boulder Family Photographer | Lost Gulch Overlook in Colorado

I
recently had the pleasure of meeting this rambunctious, loving family to get some updated family portraits for their mom. It was definitely a high energy photography session and I found the kids quite charming. I've made a lot of use of Lost Gulch Overlook this season since my go-to favorite of South Mesa Trail has been out of commission with construction efforts from the City of Boulder. This family is from California and got to do family photos on the beach in the past. Knowing that, I decided we should try to get a handful of photos over at Gross Reservoir before moving on to Lost Gulch for sunset photos. I know it's not even close to the kind of water they got at the beach in Cali, but I'm hoping the mountain views at the lake helped make up for it. It was a pretty hazy day so I decided to abandon Gross Reservoir a little early since it was nearly impossible to see the mountains through the filmy smoke in the air. At Lost Gulch Overlook we started off with a talk about being careful over on the rocks since a tumble there could be quite dangerous. After the serious speech about being careful, we went and scrambled around a little bit on the rocky outlook and played some games and had fun together. All of the good-natured ribbing and messing around between all of the siblings even made me miss my own grown up brothers and sisters. I loved that they were all game for sitting for a few individuals too. Here are some of my favorites below!

Boulder Family Photographer | Colorado Fall Color at Chautauqua Park

T
oday is Halloween and I have the perfect autumn family photo session to share for my favorite holiday! Wendy got in touch with me last month because her husband, Pete, said that he wanted to get some updated family photos for his birthday. They live in Denver like me, but were thinking about doing them in Boulder since he has always loved the Boulder Flatirons mountain after attending the University of Colorado as an undergrad. I grew up in Boulder County myself so I understand holding a special place in my heart for that iconic view. Knowing this, it was an obvious choice to see what the fall color was looking like at Chautauqua Park since those Flatirons are the main focus of that beautiful park in Boulder. Luckily, there was still plenty of nice color throughout the park and we walked up the hill to get to it along the trails behind the Chautauqua Dining Hall. There's a path back there that takes you past the vacation cottages to the Upper McClintock Trail which is surrounded in gorgeous autumn color. I had so much fun with this family and they were really good sports about playing along with my silly games and prompts to attempt to get some genuine smiles out of them. Their kids were really fun and rambunctious with each other too and it reminded me of me and my siblings when we were young. Looking at them rough-house playing you might mistakenly assume they aren't friends, but you can see that sparkle of love in their eyes when they're laughing together. We were thinking about heading up Flagstaff Road to Lost Gulch Overlook for sunset photos too, but it was starting to get chilly and the beautiful autumn trees stacked up in front of the Flatiron mountains was the perfect backdrop for the end of their session. Pete, I hope this was a good birthday treat for you! Here's a small selection of my favorites from the session. Happy birthday!

Colorado Fall Color Family Photography | Ironbridge Gold Club Glenwood Springs

I
f you have been a long time blog reader of mine, you may recognize the cuties on the blog this evening. I've been photographing them for years, since before their beautiful girls were even born back when Jen and Pascal were first engaged. It's been so much fun watching their family change and grow throughout the years. They live in Glenwood Springs and it's always a pleasure to take a trip out to see them and photograph them in the beautiful mountain scenery there. I think this session we recently did may just be my favorite one so far. Their girls are still so little that they can't keep focused on smiling for the camera for super long so we got to play lots of fun games and sing songs and move around a lot to keep it interesting for them. I have to say, I really love what we were able to get while keeping them busy! And even though every year I get insanely busy during fall, it's still my favorite time of year to photograph families together. It's not just because the fall color backdrop of gorgeous yellow Colorado aspen leaves and rusty orange maples leaves although that's definitely a big part of why I love Autumn family portraits so much. It's also because that crisp fall air makes family snuggles more fun! Who wouldn't want to cuddle up with mom and dad when that chilly fall air starts swirling around? As sunset drew near it definitely got cold and we were heading back to our cars to call it a night. But Mount Sopris off in the distance looked so beautiful that I really wanted to see if we could get just one more with the family together in front of that beautiful backdrop. After lots of twirling around we were able to get big grins on the girls faces with the pastel warm sunset light on the mountain backdrop making it the perfect ending to a lovely family portrait session. Who knows, this time went so well that maybe we'll get cocky next year and add in the family dog! Check out a selection of my favorites below.

Autumn Colorado Family Photography at Clear Creek History Park in Golden

S
even years ago I had the pleasure of photographing Tracy and Bill's wedding in Golden and we recently reconnected in the beautiful city of Golden again. This time we were photographing them with their new addition to the family, Imogen. What a darling little girl she is! When I'm photographing one year olds I'm always trying to make funny noises and sing and make ridiculous faces to see if any of it will make them laugh. Imogen ended up being the one to make all of us laugh with her mimicry skills when she started doing a pretty spot on imitation of me. Bill and Tracy were very prepared for the session as well and had some very cute props for some of the photos including some birthday balloons, an adorable stuffed bunny, and even some bubbles which Imogen loved playing with. We had a short burst of rain, but it made for some beautiful blue skies after it passed so we didn't mind at all. Below I have shared a handful of my favorites from their session.
