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!

Colorado Family Vacation Photography | Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs

L
ast week I drove south to Colorado Springs to meet up with this very fun family who was visiting from Iowa. One part of their family moved out here to Colorado Springs not too long ago and the rest of the family took a summer road trip to come visit and enjoy a little bit of family time while enjoying the scenery. And boy is the scenery hard to beat when you are in Colorado Springs. Garden of the Gods is one of my favorite places to photograph because of its pretty and dramatic red rock formations sprinkled throughout the park. It also has incredible views of the gorgeous blue snow covered mountains that Colorado is known for. We met up at the Visitor's Center and I had them follow me around the park stopping at the various picturesque places I had scoped out ahead of time. We were even able to beat the rain and get one last great shot of the family all together before we called it a night and they headed off for their ice cream treat. This is just a small handful of the great photos we were able to get with the family.

Breckenridge Family Photographer | Lomax Placer Mine & Country Boy Mine

I
headed up to good ol' Summit County last week to meet this awesome family who was visiting all the way from Texas for a family vacation together in Breckenridge, Colorado. We made plans to photograph them starting at the Lomax Placer Mine which is just a tiny drive up the hill on Ski Hill Road and has really cute old log cabins and random mining equipment laying around. We photographed there first for a little bit and then were planning to head over to the Edwin Carter Museum to get a little bit of a mountain view for them. However, I had a little bit more time to explore on this day before we met and I discovered that if you drive up to the Country Boy Mine trailhead there are pretty epic views of the mountains there plus a cool looking old mine. So we finished off our session there instead. I had so much fun laughing and hanging out with this crew. I hope they had a blast hanging out with each other in the mountain scenery of Breckenridge!

Summer Family Photos at South Valley Park | Colorado Family Photographer

T
oday on the blog is a seriously cute and smiley little guy photographed with his family here in Colorado. Not just mom and dad, but grandpa, grandma, and his uncle too! They like the look of the red rock formations so we decided to go check out South Valley Park down in Littleton as an alternative to the more well-known (but always crowded) Red Rocks. I'm so glad we did because it looked gorgeous that evening. It had been a bit windy and rainy earlier that day but by the time we met all was calm and we got the prettiest soft pink sunset light by the end. I love what we got for them!
