Winter Family Photos || The Lessard Family

Families

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?

The Butler Family || Family Photos at Garden of the Gods
The Butler family had to say goodbye to Colorado Springs last summer. But, before they left, they made time for a few final family photos at Garden of the Gods. While their roots may be in the south, the Butler family grew from two to four during their time in Colorado Springs and Whitney Anne wanted a location that was iconic to the place where her sons were born. Garden of the Gods did not disappoint. Does this view ever get old? Colorado Springs will miss the Butlers, but I'm happy that they took a little piece of us with them. And I'm proud to say that, the last I heard from Whitney Anne, Garden of the Gods is framed and hanging in ...

The Bishop Family || Colorado Springs Family Photos
Fall in Colorado Springs. It's glorious, right? More warmth. More color. Less rain. And glorious light. (Okay, maybe that last one is just a "thing" for us photographers) In any case, it's just about the perfect time for family photos - as evidenced here by the Bishop family. We did indeed have a perfect fall evening last October for these photos. But what I love most about the Bishop's photos is the way that they allowed their kids to explore and adventure throughout our time together. There was no yelling or stress and very little posing. But there was lots of stick-finding, jumping, climbing, leaf-rolling, and general curiosity to ca ...

The Murray Family
The Murray Family photo shoot ended up being a two-part photo shoot. Just as we were beginning our session at Rockledge Ranch, a giant storm started rolling in. We did our best to hold our own, but the winds were nearly sweeping us off our feet! We postponed for a later date and a new location. Good 'ol Colorado weather sure likes to keep us photographers on our toes! In the end, it all worked out and I enjoyed the opportunity to meet up with this sweet family TWICE! :) Their kids are beautiful and are so full of kindness - and it sure was fun to swap stories of our travels to Ethiopia. Thank you, Murray Family, for your patience and fl ...
