Boulder Family Photographer | South Mesa Trail at Eldorado Springs, Colorado

June 19, 2016

Erika and I met each other through the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls a few years back. A lot has happened for her since hanging up her roller derby skates. She met her husband, Jared and they had two cute kids. Her family came into town last weekend so that the young cousins could meet each other and they decided to get some family photos taken together while they had the chance. I brought them to one of my favorite photo locations in the Denver metro area called the South Mesa Trail. It’s just south of Boulder right outside of Eldorado Springs Canyon State Park. I really like this location because the dark purple rugged Boulder mountains make such a beautiful backdrop. And there are a lot of other great elements there like tall grasses, a historic old stone house, a river, and more to use. The day we met a storm started brewing by the end and provided us with a really cool stormy blue sky for the pictures. We had to fight the wind a little bit but I love how the photos turned out. I’m excited that I’ll get to photograph Erika and Jared again next month when she becomes a bridesmaid for our other roller derby friend Erin. Good times are ahead this summer!
