Natural Headshot Portraits at Shanahan Ridge Trail

December 14, 2022

Autumn Headshot Portraits at Shanahan Ridge Trailhead in Boulder Colorado

I am getting so very close to wrapping up all of the fall color sessions I did this year and I am so excited I finally get to share Sara’s gorgeous fall color headshots that we did back in mid October. We met up at the Shanahan Ridge Trailhead which is a beautiful little trail tucked away in a Boulder neighborhood. I like it there a lot because it’s fairly quiet compared to some of the other Boulder trails and you can get some nice mountain views along with a fairly dense pine forest. I wouldn’t have thought of it as being a particularly colorful place for fall color, but I was pleasantly surprised by how many pretty shrubs we saw and were able to get in her photos. And then the sunset sky turned a really pretty soft pink color that matched her top amazingly well. I had an awfully hard time narrowing down which ones I wanted to share on the journal but managed to stick with the ones below as my favorites.
