Grad Portraits at University of Colorado Boulder Campus

Family Graduation Photography During Spring at CU Boulder

It feels like only a couple of years have gone by since I last photographed this family when their other daughter graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder. But, I just looked at that older session and it was actually back in 2017 when we photographed them before. It’s truly remarkable how quickly time goes by. I was so happy they reached out again to see if I could photograph them now that their younger daughter Casadee is now graduating. We attempted to do these in the evening when the light is nicer, but we got unlucky with a rainy spring day. Luckily, we were able to reschedule these and despite dealing with some midday sunshine, I think they turned out pretty cute!  I love how beautiful the campus looks during spring with all of the trees and shrubs blooming. It’s graduation season at the moment so we had a bit more of a crowd to work around when we photographed these, but still managed to create these great photos of them.  Below are just a small handful of some of my personal favorites.
