Summit County Tenderfoot Mountain Trailhead Summer Family Photos

August 19, 2022

Summit County Family Photos at Tenderfoot Mountain Trailhead

I’m super excited to share these beautiful family photos on the journal tonight not only because this family was such a blast to photograph but because I also get to show off a new location I just discovered in Summit County! Sapphire Point is always my go to because it has gorgeous views and is super easy to find with no hiking required. But, it’s also pretty crowded there these days so I’m always interested in seeing if I can find other locations that might work for a family photo session in the Summit County area. I had a bit of time before I arrived for another session earlier this year so I took the time to go check out the trailhead at Tenderfoot Mountain to see if it might be a nice spot for some family photos and I really loved what I found there. I’ve been tossing it out as a potential location for families ever since I discovered it, but so far I haven’t had any takers. Until now, that is!  So this fun family got to be my first family photographed at this location. I absolutely love all of the variety we were able to get at this spot with mountain views looking toward Keystone, Breckenridge, and Silverthorne too. It even had a nice view of Lake Dillon and I suspect it will look pretty amazing during fall when the aspen trees there start to turn golden. After we got a few family breakdowns at Tenderfoot, we ended over at the always stunning Sapphire Point to finish up the evening. I love what we were able to get for them on that lovely summer evening! Check out some of my favorites below:)
