Colorado Mountain Senior Photos During Fall on Squaw Pass Road
I’m featuring some awesome Colorado mountain senior photos taken up on Squaw Pass Road in Evergreen on the journal today. McCoy goes to a school where they already have their own yearbook photo standards so his mom was interested in filling those in with some more casual outdoor photos of her son. These were meant for showing off his personality more than the traditional yearbook portrait would. He enjoys fishing and skiing and being in the great outdoors, so we knew that this beautiful mountain meadow up in Evergreen would be the perfect location to create these pictures for him. This locations just 15 min up Squaw Pass Road is one of my absolute favorite locations to take my clients because it has so much variety in the scenery. There are huge aspen trees, tall flowy grasses, lots of great dark green evergreen trees, and even a rustic wood fence near the parking area. It’s absolutely beautiful up there and one of these days I will have to hike down to the reservoir.
Family Pictures Mixed Into Senior Photography Session in the Woods of Colorado
His mom, Tiffany, asked if we could maybe squeeze in a handful of family photos during his session too. I know a lot of photographers only like to do one type of session at a time, but I don’t mind squeezing in this kind of request too, especially if I know about it ahead of time. She made clear that the focus was to be on McCoy and getting his portraits created but I had a lot of fun mixing it up and bringing the rest of his family into the fold too. We got to play some silly games and of course, adding in the furry family members was a joy too. I love that we got to photograph him with his dogs. They have so much personality and were having a blast running around in the forest with us. The day we met for these ended up being a little bit on the chilly side, so we had to work pretty quickly once I took them up for the photos with the mountain view at the end. But I always think that view is worth driving up to catch with the layers upon layers of mountains off in the distance. Check out my favorites from this Colorado mountain senior photo session below!
