Indian Peaks Wilderness Area Family Portraits

January 1, 2023

Family Photos at Long Lake in Colorado

I am so excited I finally get to share this sweet family photoshoot I did for my dear friends Emily and Meghan back in mid September. It’s the final fall color family session I get to share from 2022. They are such busy people now that they have two sons while staying on top of their careers and their tiny home too. So it was such a treat to get to spend that evening with them creating these and I hope I get to see them again soon now that my own busy season is slowing down a little bit. We photographed them in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area near Ward, CO not too far from Boulder because they like to go on hikes there. We did these near Long Lake. Below are just a small handful of some of my favorites that we created together that day.
