Last 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!
This family came all the way to Colorado from Australia to get some family time together in the snowy winter wonderland that is Vail. It was a bit of a chilly day so we didn't spend too much time outside walking the streets so that their little guy wouldn't get too cold. We were lucky that their view from the Sebastian Hotel was so spectacular. I hope they enjoyed their time on the slopes and keeping warm afterward together in front of the nice warm fireplace!
The family featured today came out from the warm desert land of Arizona to enjoy a little cold mountain winter weather in one of Colorado's best towns to visit with your family, Breckenridge. They spent the week enjoying the snow and hitting the runs but also wanted to squeeze in a family photo together. I was hoping we'd get one of those beautiful bluebird days that Colorado is so famous for, but the weather was not cooperating this time. We were able to make it work at the cute little historic Edwin Carter House Museum. Normally you can see the beautiful mountain views from there but the snowfall obscured it this time. I do love the nice winter wonderland feel we got in the front of the cabin and as you can see, the snow was really coming down hard. I'm hoping these will remind them of the fun they had together as a family in Colorado.
Ihad planned to photograph this family earlier this week but a chilly snowstorm came in and the mountain views were pretty non-existent. Luckily we both had the next day open and it was actually bright and sunny and even somewhat warm for this time of year. It was your typical beautiful winter day in Colorado with the sun shining on fresh snow fall. The path at Sapphire Point was a little icy so we had to be really careful but I love how different it looks there with pretty white snow everywhere. Here's a small handful of the beautiful mountain family photos we were able to create. What a treat to start off the first post of the year with such a photogenic family!
