Golden Colorado Family Photography | Clear Creek History Park

Clear Creek History Park Family Photos During Fall

I’m so excited to share these Clear Creek History Park family photos on the journal today. It’s a gorgeous park along Clear Creek in the downtown Golden Colorado area. This is the third time I have had the pleasure of photographing Jen & Alex this year. We did their engagement photos at New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins this past May and then we photographed one side of their family in June. About a week ago we met up again to photograph a different side of the family. With all of this practice posing in front of the camera, they’re going to be professional models by the time we get to their wedding at Chatfield Farms next year! This time we opted for the colorful fall color area next to Clear Creek at the Clear Creek History Park in Golden. I really enjoy photographing this group. They are so friendly and joke around a lot. They’re one of those families who really enjoy hanging out together and treat each other like friends.

They also did a fantastic job coordinating their outfits. The bright mustard yellow and deep dark purple stands out nicely with the golden hued fall foliage. And speaking of fall foliage, it looks like it’s still going pretty strong here in the Denver area. If your family needs a new photo for this year’s holiday card give me a call or email. I still have availability for family portrait sessions in November.
