Couple and their Dogs Family Photos at Squaw Pass Road

July 22, 2022

Couples Portraits with their Dogs in Evergreen Colorado

I have the cutest little family photos to share on the blog today. Becca and Beau are celebrating 15 years of marriage this year and decided it’d be nice to get some updated family photos together with their two adorable dogs, Izzy and Charlie. We went to my fave mountain spot close to Denver up on Squaw Pass Road for their pictures. At first we weren’t sure what we’d be in for with the weather since it was looking a little stormy, but the storm passed by earlier that evening so we didn’t have to deal with actual rain falling on our heads though it was a little bit wetter than normal from the previous rainfall. It ended up being a beautiful evening though and I was happy to see that the wildflowers were still hanging on a little bit though they weren’t quite as abundant this year as I’ve seen them in the past. You never really know what you’ll get when you bring dogs to a photoshoot, but Izzy and Charlie were super sweet and we were able to get them looking right at the camera for lots of the photos which is not always the easiest thing to get. Below are some of my personal favorites we got that evening. Enjoy!
