Mount Falcon Park | Colorado Mountain Family Photography in Evergreen

I
photographed this great family last year on a bit of a tricky weather day. We scheduled again for this summer but pushed it back due to weather. Luckily, the day we finally made it happen we received a beautiful sunny day with no rain! We toyed with the idea of hitting City Park, but in the end they wanted a mountain feel. So we headed up highway 285 to the west side of Mount Falcon Park nestled between Evergreen and Morrison in the foothills of the Denver Metro area. The Castle trailhead is so beautiful with a really great woodsy feel and lots of great views of the mountains. Of course, we timed it to take place right before sunset which is what I always try to do for the nice light and color which is essentially what photography is all about. We had fun playing a few games and hanging out together and I really love what we came away with at this location!

Summit County Colorado Family Photography | Lake Dillon at Keystone

I
drove up to the Breckenridge area last week to photograph this extended family who were all vacationing together and hosting a family reunion with the matriarch of their family. We started off the session pretty strong but then the weather started acting up a little with some wind and a few drops of rain which wasn't a big deal except that it started to obscure the lovely mountain views. It was bugging me since I really try to get those in the shots for people who are visiting from out of state since it's nice to have them in their portraits. We just kept chugging along though, changing up our angle and eventually we were rewarded with a very nice rainbow. After that the haze cleared up quite a bit and those gorgeous mountains came right back into view for us. Check out a handful of my favorites below!

Mountain Aspen Tree Family Photography | Evergreen Colorado

I
had so much fun photographing this family up Squaw Pass road in Evergreen, Colorado last week. We went to a location full of beautiful Aspen trees and the shades of blue that the family wore looked perfect with the mountain backdrop there. We played some games and had a lot of fun together while creating these portraits. All of the cousins were running around together and laughing and playing in between photos. I have to say, I really love that getting together for a session not only makes great photos together but provides some good quality time together as a family. My favorite part was when the older siblings were posing together they suddenly started cracking up because their dad was attempting to get a smile out of them by mooning them. Whatever works to get that natural smile, dad! I'll take it! Here are just a handful of some of my favorites.

Vail Valley Colorado Family Photography | Eagle River Preserve in Edwards

I
drove out to the Vail Valley and photographed this family last week and I have to say they were so much fun to work with! There was lots of laughing and good attitudes about going along with all of my silly games. We decided to go to the Eagle River Preserve which I have not been to before and it was perfect. There were so many beautiful native plants with lots of nice walking paths and nature to use. There was even a really pretty (tiny) pond. And of course, access to the Eagle River for some pretty photos with it in the backdrop. This family has been visiting the same home in Edwards, Colorado for the past 7 years for family vacations. I truly love the idea of families who are spread out all over the country coming together for a little rest and relaxation as well as some family bonding time. There is just something really great about spending a week or two together away from the worries of everyday life and reconnecting and getting to know each other again. I remember doing this as a kid at my grandparent's house with my cousins when I was younger and there is nothing like having built in friends who just happen to be your family too. This place in Edwards has become a little bit like a second home to all of them and since it was just down the street a little ways from the Eagle River Preserve we decided to end the session back at the vacation home. There was a pretty little Aspen tree area in the backyard and we went down by the river at their place for some end of the evening pictures too. What a fun and happy clan, they truly made my job so easy!
