Location, location, location!! It’s no secret that the Denver area is full of scenic landscapes and stunning views. One of the questions I am often asked as a Denver photographer is “where do your sessions take place?”. Everywhere! I travel all over the Denver and Boulder metro-areas for sessions. After many adventures and sessions, I have narrowed down some favorites spots based on lighting, accessibility and scenery. I am excited to share some of my top location ideas with you!
Here are a few things to consider when selecting a location for your Denver family photo session. First of all, consider the time of year. Some locations may look amazing in soft, cool winter light. Others might shine with the green grasses of early summer. Second, consider your family’s wardrobe. Do you like to wear trendy, modern clothes or do you feel more comfortable in a neutral palettes. Will you be comfortable sitting on a fence in a dress? Third, don’t forget about the drive! Some children do amazing on longer drives, others arrive grumpy and upset. How far does your family tolerate? Finally, consider where you will display your images. Will a vibrant mural flow with your distressed wood wall? Will a rustic barn work in your ultra-modern condo? I can help you with all these questions!
With all of that said, ultimately, your family is always the focus of our images. Whether we meet in a local park, your backyard or in the Rocky Mountains, your family’s love and connection will always be the subject of my art. Let’s make something amazing together!
Denver Photo Locations
Here they are! My top ten favorite locations for Denver family photos:
1. Urban Location
Energetic, vibrant and hip!
Colorful murals and gritty alleys are fun backdrops for modern family photos!
2. Mountain Views
Sunlit, wondrous, and enchanting!
Those blue beauties! It’s what living in Colorado is all about.
Pretty, earthy and serene!
Trees and rolling hills in the background, what’s not to love!
4. Barn or Fence
Rustic, warm and vintage!
There is nothing like a weathered old barn or fence to make a photographer happy.
Authentic, timeless, sentimental!
Newborn or not, I absolutely adore capturing families in their homes.
Woodsy, natural, and unique!
Aspen trees and evergreens…I am a serious tree hugger!
Artistic, textured, and dynamic.
From the iconic music venue of Red Rocks to the gigantic boulders in Boulder.
8. Neighborhood Park
Local, fun and effortless.
Wash Park is definitely a landmark in Denver!
Styled, minimal, and modern.
Holiday and Mother’s Day minis are available in-studio once (per occasion) a year! But feel free to book a family session in studio year-round.
Serene, natural and relaxing.
So many sweet little spots with water in the Denver area!

Little Ollie turned one in January! His family traveled to Denver for his six month photos, so I opted to drive to them for his one year session. It was so fun photographing this sweet family again…and checking out a brand new location. I adore the views of Garden of the Gods. The red rocks, blue mountains, and warm sun rays are truly stunning. Add in Ollie’s bright eyes and reluctant, but adorable, smiles and it was truly a beautiful session in Colorado Springs! I look forward to traveling to many new locations in 2018! If you have interest in a session in your city or state, please reach out and I will see what I can make happen.

Denver family portrait photographers work year round in sunshine, rain, clouds, snow and wind. I think this session had a little bit of each season. A few fall leaves remained, it was sunny…and raining for half our session (at the same time). Love the soft pastel light that really makes this beautiful family shine. We met at a popular Denver park…near this family’s home to accommodate their daughters nap and bedtimes…daylight savings time had just ended and it got dark quite early! Outdoor portrait sessions are always scheduled for about an hour or two before sunset…which can vary from 3pm to 7pm in Denver, depending on the time of year. This golden hour has the most beautiful light of the day!

After almost a decade of photographing families, I rarely get nervous before a session. But when this mom requested a family session for her pre-school age twins and one year old, I admit I was envisioning complete chaos. Well, I had no reason to be concerned. The twins were the sweetest with their baby sister, and mom and dad make having three littles look like a piece of cake. It didn’t hurt that they stepped out of the car looking like a What to Wear Pinterest board. I love the fall colors and tones they chose. I so hope I have the honor of photographing this sweet family of five again in the future!

I had such a great time picking flowers and finding rocks for Grace’s first birthday photos! This beautiful Boulder family met me at a trailhead with sweeping views of the Flatirons on the prettiest summer night. Mom and Dad take plenty of time each day to play with Grace and teach her how to explore the world. She was so curious about all the pretty wildflowers and wanted to show everything including little rocks to her sweet parents. She is taking her first steps unassisted and was ready to take off, until she realized the ground was a little too prickly with grass. Luckily this little lady was quickly swept back up by her loving parents. Just a lovely and beautiful little Boulder family! I am so honored I could capture Grace’s first birthday photos!
