Rocky Mountain National Park Senior Photographer

Senior Portraits in Estes Park Colorado at RMNP

As a Rocky Mountain National Park senior photographer, I am so excited to share the latest senior session on my blog today.  I photographed Angie at RMNP early last week just as the wildfire haze was starting to pick up quite a bit.  We worried a little bit that it might make the mountains hard to see, but since she was visiting from out of state and wouldn’t be able to easily reschedule, we just went for it.  I am so happy that we did.  Yes, the air quality kind of stinks and can make it a little harder to breathe, but it also makes the light soft and warm which translates so nicely on camera.  You’ll see it especially in the photos near the river with all of the warm glow on the water showing up in these pictures.

We met up on the northern entrance at the Fall River side of the park because I wanted to attempt to use one of my favorite pull offs which gets blocked off due to road construction after 7 pm right now.  Sadly, the entire pull off that I like to use was blocked off with no parking available.  But, things like that just force me to get creative and see what else might look great for photos and we did find another spot on that side of the park that looked awesome.  We even managed to get a couple of deer grazing in the backdrop of Angie’s photos!  I don’t think I could have asked to create a more quintessential Rocky Mountain National Park senior picture.  We headed over to the Big Thompson River and got some gorgeous photos of the mountain stream and of course used my favorite part of RMNP which is Moraine Park.  I love the mountain views surrounding the huge open field there.  Angie was such a natural in front of the camera and I have so many great photos of her.  It was actually quite hard to narrow them down because I loved so many of them, but I have my very favorites below.
