Family Photos with Mountain Lake Backdrop at C Lazy U Ranch

C Lazy U Ranch Family Portraits During Winter

I have the most beautiful sunset family photos to share on the journal today. I drove up to Granby to meet this extended family on their vacation at the C Lazy U Ranch.  They were meeting up there from all over the country to spend some quality time together after having been there over 20 years ago. Now they have grandkids that they can share the experience of the ranch with and one of their daughters thought it would be fun to get some family pictures while they were all together. We got pretty lucky with the weather that evening with very little wind and decent temps too. We timed it so well and caughter to gorgeous purple and pink sunset with the Willow Creek Reservoir and some of the mountains of the continental divide off in the distance behind them as well. Below are some of my personal favorites from their session.
