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!

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!
