It's about that time of year when I get to share my sister in law's beautiful family photos. Every year we've been photographing them together and I can't get over how fast this life seems to go by. Each time we meet for the annual family photo my niece and nephews grow bigger their personalities seem to take shape just a little bit more. It's so cool to watch that happen right before our eyes. This year we opted to do their family photos at the Denver Botanic Gardens central location on York Street. I love their dapper outfits and they all looked so fancy this year. Plus the gardens looked amazing and made for a beautiful backdrop for their family pictures. Take a look at how cute these munchkins are now!
Joe contacted me at the beginning of the summer to look into getting his family on the schedule for some updated family portraits of all of them together. He and his siblings are all grown up now and as we all know, life can get pretty hectic and it's not easy to schedule the whole family. It feels like we didn't get that much rain this summer but poor Joe, every time we did get a crazy rainstorm it happened to be on the day that we had scheduled his family's photo session! I think his family wins the record for most number of reschedules due to weather that I've ever had. Even on our 3rd time trying to get them done, we met up and the rain began. We had to wait it out about 30-40 min before we could even begin the session and I was so afraid we were going to just have to call it and try again on another day. But thankfully, the rain finally cleared up and we were able to get some great photos for them afterward. It's usually not a big deal to schedule outdoor pictures here in Colorado due to our 300+ days of sunshine reputation but sometimes the weather has a mind of its own. We started our photos up at Gross Reservoir in Boulder which has beautiful mountain views and forested areas. And with very limited light left at sunset we managed to squeeze in a 2nd location at Lost Gulch Overlook which also has pretty mountain views and looks out over the City of Boulder as well. I really wanted to fit in this location for them since I love the dramatic rocky landscape there. Despite the weather attempting to ruin a perfectly good family photography outing, they were total champs and I love what we were able to get in our shortened timeframe! Joe, thank you to you and your family for waiting so patiently through the rainstorm to get these! I hope you love them!
It's been such an awesome summer so far. Every week I've had the opportunity to head up I-70 to meet a family vacationing here in beautiful mountains of Colorado. I recently had the pleasure of meeting this family who opted to meet me halfway from Vail in Georgetown. We were going to try and get some photos in the cute little town itself before heading up Guanella Pass, but we had a wee little 5 month old and they weren't sure how long she'd be able to last for picures. So we opted to head for the nature filled river area instead of starting in town. We had gotten our first photos done when all of a sudden the sky opened up and started raining. We waited it out for a bit in our cars and luckily it passed and we were able to finish what we started. I love what we were able to get for them near South Clear Creek and the beautiful forest filled with nice evergreens and aspen trees. Their sweet baby girl was just so cute with her furrowed eyebrows. She is going to love looking back at these one day and seeing all the love her family has for her.
