Denver Bar Mitzvah Portraits at Willow Creek

June 28, 2019

Denver Bar Mitzvah Portraits at Centennial’s Willow Creek Park

Nadav is having his bar mitzvah later this summer but before that momentous day arrives, his mom thought it would be a great idea to get some nice photos created.  Now they’ll be able to use one of them in his printed programs. Some people also like to use the photos created at a bar mitzvah portrait session in the decor at the bar mitzvah party. We opted to do his Denver Bar Mitzvah portraits near his home on the south side of the metro area at a beautiful creekside location called Willow Creek Park.

I have to give a huge shout out to Nadav’s mom for suggesting Willow Creek Park.  It’s a really beautiful neighborhood park tucked away in a pretty area near Park Meadows Mall. I don’t live down south, so I never would have stumbled across it on my own. I love this park because there is a nice creek to use in the photos and the trees and foliage are nice and tall.  This makes it so much easier than most neighborhood parks to hide all of the surrounding houses to give the pictures a more secluded look. I can imagine that it’s a beautiful location in the fall too with all of the nice large cottonwood trees growing along the banks of Willow Creek.  I also love that it’s a place that Nadav loves spending time at. When he grows older and looks back on his photos, they’ll remind him of a place he loved when growing up. I can’t wait to see all of the great photos we’ll get for him and his family later this summer at his Bar Mitzvah too!
