Winter Maternity Portraits in the Snow | Christmas in Aspen Colorado

December 9, 2015

Aspen Maternity Photos in Downtown Aspen, Colorado

I have the prettiest, snowy winter Aspen maternity photos to share with the world today! I was lucky enough to get to photograph Jill and Michael during the fall just a couple of years ago in the Aspen area for their autumn engagement session. We went to the Maroon Bells for part of their session and the colors throughout all of Aspen looked incredible for that session. They got married last summer and contacted me recently with the awesome news that they are expecting a new baby soon. This time Jill wanted to get some pretty outdoor snow photos for the maternity session.

The weather didn’t cooperate for us on our first date so we pushed our session back a little bit. I’m glad we did because we were able to take advantage of the pretty snowy scenery as well as the beautiful holiday decor that recently popped up in the hotels and streets of Aspen. The colorful lights and glittery ornamentation added a nice touch to some of their photos. And I have to give a huge thank you and shout out to The Little Nell for allowing us to take a photo of these two parents to be in their nicely decorated lobby prior to heading out for our photo walk. We wandered around downtown Aspen and Paepke Park for some of their maternity photos and eventually made our way over to the John Denver Sanctuary. It was covered in a fresh pile of snow and looked absolutely magical on the day we photographed these. I particularly love the historic Ron Krajian Bridge and we made sure to get one of the two of them together on that bridge with the Roaring Fork River in the background. They have the best present ever on the way and I’m so glad that we were able to photograph them during this really sweet and special time in their lives.

    Hi I was wondering if you could tell me about where the last photo was taken it looks beautiful

  3. April says:

    Hi Rob, I tried to look at google maps to see if I could jog my memory of where this was taken but I just don’t know the exact spot. I think it was somewhere near the Little Nell hotel/and the downtown shops.
