Estes Park Senior Portraits at RMNP

August 20, 2022

Rocky Mountain National Park Senior Photos

At the beginning of August I drove up to Estes Park to meet this beautiful family at the Beaver Meadows Visitor’s Center for their family/senior photoshoot. Their oldest daughter is a senior this year so they thought they’d get some awesome mountain backdrops for her senior photos. We also squeezed in some family pictures for them as well. Their oldest daughter’s best friend joined them on this summer vacation too. She’s like part of the family and I am so glad I got to get such a cute photo of the two besties together too. The wildflowers were looking so cute so we stopped in an area I don’t typically stop at first to try and catch some of those in their photos before heading on to my normal favorite locations on the Estes Park side of the Rocky Mountain National Park. As always, we ended their session at Moraine Park where the mountain views from the meadow are always so dramatic and gorgeous. It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and pretty soon that meadow will be closed to tourists and taken over by the bugling elk. I had a hard time narrowing them down because there were so many beautiful photos but I managed to keep it to the photos below. Enjoy!
