Family Portraits During Winter at Roxborough State Park in Colorado

November 25, 2020

Family Pictures with Pretty Red Rock Formations at Roxborough State Park

It’s been a couple of years since I last got to see this awesome family.  The last time we met up for their photography session, we did some pictures during the fall color season at Chautauqua up in Boulder.  This time we decided to go for Roxborough State Park since Autumn is firmly in the past at this point and I wanted to get some cool scenery for them that didn’t depend on colorful plant life.  We actually had to reschedule not just once or twice, but 3 times to finally get a day when the weather was cooperating with us (wind and portraits don’t mix so well) and I’m so glad the 3rd time ended up being the charm.  I think Roxborough State Park more than delivers with the pretty red rock scenery there. I also love that I almost always see deer at this park. We walked a couple of miles roundtrip along my favorite trail and got all of these gorgeous photos for them.  I feel so lucky that I get to meet such nice families like this one doing this kind of work and it’s extra cool to see their kids grow up before my very eyes. I still can’t believe their oldest will be heading to high school soon. Check out some of my favorites from their session below!
