Clear Creek History Park Fall Color Senior Photos in Golden

October 20, 2023

Autumn in Golden Colorado Senior Portraits at Clear Creek History Park and Lookout Mountain

I have a beautiful fall color senior session to share on the journal today. I photographed this lovely young lady earlier this week and worked really hard to get the photos turned around quickly so that we could get her yearbook photo turned in on time. She lives in Golden and wanted to do her photos near Clear Creek and also some up at Lookout Mountain. We started off at the Clear Creek History Park and did a little loop around the Clear Creek Trail next to the river and then headed up the winding Lariat Loop road to finish at sunset on Lookout Mountain. She got so lucky with a gorgeous purple, pink, and orange sunset sky with brilliant colors. Below are some of my favorite photos we created together!

If you are a senior looking to get your senior photos done, be sure to take a peek at the SENIORS page of my website and then email me. Depending on when your yearbook photos are due, we may still be able to squeeze you in before the fall color is gone!
