Breckenridge Family Photos on a Snowy Day at Sapphire Point in Colorado
As a Breckenridge family photographer, it’s been a much quieter year this year for family pictures up in Summit County due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Normally I get to head up I-70 quite often to photograph families who are enjoying the beauty of Breckenridge and the other towns like Silverthorne, Frisco, and Keystone that surround Lake Dillon. I haven’t had the pleasure of heading up to Breck for many months now which is why I was so excited to hear from this fun family who were planning to be during the Thanksgiving holiday to hit the slopes. This year is really special for them because they just bought a house in Frisco. They plan to visit Colorado often to enjoy the great outdoors and learn to snowboard. I’m excited for them because it’ll be such a nice way for them to spend time together as a family. I know once the kids start to get into their teenage years it can get harder to find the time to bring everyone together and this will be such a fun thing for them to do together.
Snowy Breck Family Photos at Lake Dillon in Summit County
I was a little nervous heading into this session because we got a bit more snow than I was anticipating which is awesome for their plans to head to the ski resorts, but made for a bit more of a chilly session than I was hoping for. Still, they knew what to expect and we plowed forward anyway knowing that it’s just part of Colorado’s charm. I arrived in Frisco early to scope out some spots I have been interested in checking out and grew concerned when I realized that the Ten Mile mountain range which is usually so beautiful when covered with fresh snow was completely obscured by the cloudy weather. The snow was also still falling pretty heavily so I just kept my fingers crossed that it would clear up a little bit by the time we made our way over to Sapphire Point. We started off by getting some cute photos of them in front of their new home and then made our way up Swan Mountain Road. The beautiful mountain views looking toward Breckenridge’s ski slopes were still obscured when we arrived so we decided to head down the opposite side of the path with views toward Keystone that I don’t normally use at my Breckenridge family photoshoots. As sunset neared, we did turn toward the Ten Mile mountain views because they were just barely starting to show and got some pretty magical, snowy, winter wonderland style holiday pictures for them. What a beautiful, snowy day it was and props to them for being able to last for more than an hour in such cold temperatures! Check out some of my favorites below.
