Lovers Leap Family Photographer in Huerfano County
I am so excited to share this Spanish Peaks family photography session I did last week down near La Veta. Up here in the Denver metro area, all of the best locations always seem to be crawling with other people so it was such an incredible breath of fresh air to travel down to Southern Colorado to the incredibly beautiful Spanish Peaks Wilderness area for this family photography session. Bree is the mom who set up this session for her family and she told me about a place down there called “Lovers Leap.” I went early to scope it out prior to meeting the family and I could not get over how lovely it is there. It’s a little bit scary because it’s basically an overlook with a long fall down if you don’t pay attention closely. It’s the type of place where if it were located closer to where I live in Denver or even the more touristy parts of Colorado it’d be ruined by a large fence to protect everyone from their own stupidity, haha. But, for now it’s open and makes an incredible backdrop for pictures.
Family Portraits at Lovers Leap Spanish Peaks Wilderness in Southern Colorado
I loved photographing this family. They were so fun and totally game to participate in my wacky games and questions about themselves. We were able to get a great mix of classic family pictures as well as some more candid and “real” photos for them to enjoy. In fact, we got so many great family photos from this session that I had a really hard time narrowing them down for sharing online. In the end I decided to just go ahead and show off a few more than normal so that everyone could see what a beautiful place the Spanish Peaks area is! I love that it’s a little bit more off the beaten path than other parts of Colorado and has a lot of beauty to offer. My husband and I took our trailer, Gilda, down to spend the night since it’s a bit of a drive and we had fun exploring the area, including a quick visit to Cuchara which has a fun old western feel to the town. I highly recommend a trip down to Southern Colorado to check out what Huerfano County has to offer!
