Spring Family Photography Colorado | Clear Creek History Park in Golden

I
n August of this year it'll be 2 years since I photographed Matt and Michaela at their wedding at Chatfield Farms (which was called Chatfield Botanic Gardens back then). I was pleased to get an email from Michaela recently asking if I could photograph the family together again over Mother's Day weekend. I said yes of course and we decided to meet at the Clear Creek History Park in Golden where I was hoping there might still be some spring blossoms in full swing. We did get lucky with one tree that had blossoms but they were mostly gone by the time we met in mid-May. Still it was a really nice hot spring day and we walked around capturing their family together. It was pretty great to catch up and hear all about the adventures they've been on since the wedding too. What a sweet mother's day gift this was. Spending time together and getting photos is a great way to celebrate Mothers Day! Here's a small peek at what we created that day.

University of Colorado Graduation Photography | Boulder Family Photos

I
t's graduation season here in Colorado and across the country with graduates of all education levels celebrating their years of hard work and receiving their diplomas. It's also springtime and when the blossoms are blooming I cannot get enough of photographing people and families outside. McKenzie and her family wanted to celebrate her success in graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder with some graduation pictures with the whole family. I loved that they wore their CU gear for these while McKenzie rocked her cap and gown. We also headed for the iconic flatirons mountain backdrop at Chautauqua Park which I think is the perfect place to be photographed when you are celebrating your soon to be CU Buff alumni status. McKenzie's whole family stood proud with her for these updated family photos at this important milestone in her life. And I like to think they had a little bit of fun too playing some games, exploring the hills behind the dining hall and smelling all of the lovely spring flowers along the way. Around sunset we finished up with the majestic flatirons in the backdrop. Soon McKenzie will be leaving the beauty of Boulder Colorado and moving on to new adventures as she attends law school in Wisconsin. I wish her all the best of luck in her life goals!

Colorado Family Photography | Devil’s Backbone Open Space in Loveland

O
h my goodness, there are so many adorable baby faces on the blog today. This sweet little baby had his first professional photos taken with mom and dad at a place up in Loveland, Colorado called "Devil's Backbone." This place is appropriately named due to the crazy rocky ridge. We got pretty lucky with a fairly warm day for March sandwiched right between two colder days. This little guy was such a great sport for his photo session, not only looking right at the camera but even giving us some smiles which don't always happen at such a young age. I couldn't be more pleased with how these turned out!

Colorado Springs Family Photography | Rock Ledge Ranch at Garden of the Gods

L
ast week I got to meet the cutest family with the sweetest little 3 year old girl and her baby brother too. Their grandma who they affectionately call "Gigi" was in town visiting from Wisconsin and wanted to get some family pictures taken together while she was out here. We decided to give Rock Ledge Ranch a go for our portrait location. I've only photographed near there on the outskirts where the American Mother's Chapel is and never further in where all of the historic farm buildings are located. It was a ton of fun hanging out with them walking around, looking at the ducks chasing each other around the pond and creating these portraits together. We ended the session at sunset just outside of Garden of the Gods where there is a beautiful view of the stunning red rock formations stacked up in front of the pretty blue mountains. By the time sunset came the wind was howling pretty good and these poor kiddos were freezing so we finished up as quickly as we could. I think we got a lot of really cute pictures of the four of them together. Can't wait to do it again when their daddy who is in the service comes home!
