Winter Family Photos || The Lessard Family


One thing I love about living in Colorado is that we experience four distinct seasons here. When it’s summer, you know it. And when it’s winter, there’s plenty of cold and snow to remind you of that too.

And with the changing weather comes a constantly changing landscape. As a photographer, this can be wonderfully exciting. For example, I can use the same location several times a year and get completely different results each time. But these four seasons can also be a bit tricky too – a location that was beautiful and blossoming two weeks ago, might be dead and bare today.

Last year with the Lessard family, I discovered that this little field in Monument Valley Park is the perfect spot for winter family photos. The curvy branches and grass covered ground provided lovely surroundings during a time when much of Colorado Springs’ scenery seemed a bit dreary and desolate.

We met up early to take advantage of the great cloud cover. And, as you’ll see, the chilly temperatures made for great family hugs and cuddles! What more could I ask for?

Bear Creek Park Family Photos || The Anderson Family
Every August, I start really looking forward to fall. Anyone else dreaming of colorful leaves and sweater weather? Since that's not quite happening outside yet,  I thought I'd bring a bit of fall to your computer screen today! I loved the Anderson Family's Bear Creek Park Family Photos last year. It's high time they come out into the blog-o-sphere. This location never ceases to wow me. It's beautiful when it's green. It's beautiful when the leaves are changing. And I've even had some great sessions here during the winter time. I was excited when Holly said she wanted to meet up here - and I was even more excited to meet her three boys. I d ...
The Gaddis Family
What a joy it was to meet up with the Gaddis family for photos at the beginning of December. They live close to Denver, but decided that the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel would be the perfect place for their family photos. They were hoping to use the photos for Christmas gifts, so I held off a bit on sharing them with you so as to not ruin the surprise. I sure hope these gifts were part of a very Merry Christmas for them! Don't let these beautiful people fool you, it was freeeeezing cold during this shoot. But, I believe that the gorgeous surroundings and the Christmas decorations made up for that fact. And didn't they do a good job of smil ...
The Tate Family [at home in the forest]
When an inquiry from a new client starts with "you can come to our property" and ends with "can we include our horses?" - you know it's going to be a fun shoot! Because of the freezing temps and high winds that November brought us, I had to reschedule with the Tate family three times, but boy am I glad that we persevered and am so thankful for the beautiful December evening that we had for these photos. The Tate kiddos were wonderful hosts and I loved capturing them where they live and play! Enjoy these bright wintery smiles!
