Family Photos at Grand Lake Mountain Cabin Home

October 13, 2021

Grand Lake Extended Family Portraits at a Colorado Mountain Home

Back in September I traveled up to Grand Lake to meet this super fun family who were vacationing together at a really cool cabin-style mountain home in Grand Lake. They were there to enjoy the nature and time spent with each other as a family and the home they rented was a really cool place with neat swing beds. It also backed up right next to the Colorado River which we used as a backdrop for some of their photos so I could get a little bit of a mountain view for them. I really liked the look of the front porch and the doorway with the window boxes too. They were a blast to photograph and ran with my ideas which helped me create these cute and candid photos together. Check out some of my favorites below!
