Cold Winter Day at Sapphire Point in Colorado

January 11, 2022

Chilly Winter Day for Family Portraits at Sapphire Point during Christmas Break

I did a bunch of family sessions over the Christmas holiday and sadly, not everyone got to have mountain views in their pictures this year because we had a huge snowstorm that blew into Colorado and just refused to leave. It was all gray skies obscuring the mountains for days. But, before that happened, I met up with this family and even though it was super cold, they at least go to enjoy these gorgeous mountain views in their pictures. It was so freezing cold out that day that we really didn’t last long, but despite the shortened session we managed to create all of these beautiful photos I’m sharing on the blog today. So clearly, this session was a huge success!  Check out some of my favorites below!
