Denver Holiday Activities | Downtown Photography

The holiday season is full of excitement. Old traditions and new events. Sparkly lights, yummy food, and most importantly spending time with loved ones. After a busy fall season photographing families in preparation of this special season, it is time to unwind and enjoy the magic of the holiday. In Denver and the surrounding areas there are so many fun activities for all ages.


To see the best Christmas lights be sure to check out the Blossoms of Light at the Botanic Gardens, Zoo Lights at the Denver zoo and if it’s too chilly to walk around outside, Christmas in Color at water world is the option for you! You get to stay in your car for this one!


If you are in the mood for ice skating be sure to check out the rink in Downtown Denver! You just pay for your skate rental. If you bring your own, skating is free!


The Colorado Ballet puts on the Nutcracker! What is more festive than that? Featuring music from the Colorado Orchestra.


Check out the German market Christkindlmarket for traditional Germain flair, artisan gifts, and treats. Admission is free!


For a Christmas stay-cation check out the Gaylord Rockies! Featuring several holiday activities and beautiful decorations. Enjoy snow tubing, gingerbread decorating, cirque shows, and the “Mission: Save Christmas” experience.


And last but not least; one of our favorite holiday activities is to make popcorn and hot cocoa and get under a big blanket and watch Christmas movies together. So simple, but so special. 

However you choose to celebrate this holiday season I hope you get to enjoy time with the people closest to you.

My style and goal when photographing families is to create timeless, yet fresh images! I love incorporating our beautiful Colorado scenery and golden sunsets to help capture authentic moments.  If you are interested in more information on senior portraits or family photography click here!  Or email me directly at  Please allow 48 hours for me to respond.
