Holiday Family Photos in Estes Park

December 10, 2020

Christmas Family Pictures at Knoll-Willows Park in Estes Park

I am so excited to share this cute family’s Christmas pictures on the blog today.  They recently had a newborn baby girl and decided to take the family on a little stay-cation trip to Estes Park.  They brought their 7 year old son and their brother in law too for a nice little mountain getaway and decided to get their updated family pictures done while there.  We ended up with a pretty nice day considering it’s December and got some great photos of all of them together. We first walked along the path at Lake Estes to get some next to the river with the whole family.  Then we made our way over to the ruins at the Knoll-Willows Park and got some incredible photos over there with mountain views and even the iconic Stanley Hotel in the backdrop. They were such troopers too and lasted past sunset into dusk when the sky turned colors and got really pretty.  Check out a handful of my favorites from their cute holiday portrait session below!
