Denver Maternity Photographer | Lair O’ the Bear Morrison, Colorado

January 30, 2015

Chelsea & Dillon have some big life changes coming up on the horizon. Chelsea is pregnant with their first child and they are also in the middle of picking up and moving their family back to Louisiana where they are from. They’re sad to be moving from Colorado but it’s worth it to be closer to family when their little baby boy arrives. Before they made the big move they thought it would be nice to capture Chelsea’s maternity photos in the beautiful outdoors space of Colorado. Chelsea is actually the one who picked out the location. I’ve always heard that Lair O’ the Bear park is really pretty but I’ve never been up there until I met with them for the photos. It’s a really easy drive up Bear Creek Canyon and I love the waters of Bear Creek being right there in the park. And for being in the heart of winter there was a surprising amount of color to use in the photos.

One of my favorites:)
