Snowball Fight Family Photos in Aspen Colorado

December 20, 2021

Winter Family Portraits Playing in the Snow in Aspen Colorado

Normally around this time of year I’m starting to wind down a little bit, at least compared to the craziness of the fall color season. But 2021 has bigger plans in store for me and I’m actually gearing up for a super busy Christmas full of family photos for those traveling to Colorado. And I get to kick off this final push for 2021 with an adorable family I was so lucky to get to photograph in Aspen the week of Thanksgiving. They’ve been so patient with me as I played catch up on this busy fall and wrapped up all of the holiday card photos.  But tonight I finally get to share what we got for them at their family session. They’re from Louisiana so they don’t get a lot of opportunity to play in the snow so they really wanted to get some more candid and fun photos of them playing together.  Unfortunately, we’ve had a pretty dry winter so far and there wasn’t a whole lot of snow to play with while they were here. But, I think the snow was actually pretty decent snowball making snow so we had some fun throwing the snow around in the yard of their rental home in Aspen. I also mixed in a few traditional portraits as well.
