Speer Boulevard Park Senior Portraits Next to Cherry Creek

October 24, 2020

Downtown Senior Photography at Cherry Creek Trail

I have a super fun high school senior yearbook photo session to share on the journal today.  I photographed this young man’s older sister’s senior portraits and he tagged along for those and due to Covid-19 keeping her at home for the time being, she was able to come join his session too which was fun.  We walked from Centennial Gardens next door to Elitches all the way up to the Downtown Children’s Playground stopping by the South Platte River, Confluence Park and the Speer Boulevard Park too as we explored this section of the Cherry Creek Trail.  There are a lot of fun little nooks and crannies to use in this area of downtown Denver and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite areas to photograph in again.  I love that there is water and some of the city views are beautiful.  And there are some really cool old vintage railroad bridges that I love to get in the photos too.  Below is just a small selection of some of my personal favorites from our session this past week.
