You are not in the mountains. The mountains are in you.

--John Muir

I love being able to capture families in places that are meaningful to them - and that’s always the perfect reason to schedule a session. I’m always flattered to be invited to photograph a special occasion, family trip, or getaway - whether in the mountains, at the beach, or beyond. But this time, I was fortunate enough to venture out to Keystone, Colorado, to document this family’s beautiful new mountain home. 

I’ve known this bunch for as long as I have been a photographer, and even went to photography school with this gorgeous mama. I was fortunate enough to photograph them while they were living in Washington DC, and love that we’ve kept up the tradition here in Colorado as well. We had to reschedule our session a couple times due to the weather (those early spring months in Colorado are so unpredictable sometimes!), and finally connected on a chilly day in May. 

For previous sessions, we always stayed closer to town in Boulder or near me in Denver, but we decided to make use of the Summit County scenery this time. 

This family is so laid back, easy going, and nice. Their son absolutely loves to mountain bike, so we made sure to capture him on the trails a bit, too. 

If you're venturing out to the mountains of Summit County (or beyond)...


I hope you'll ask me to tag along for a Colorado family photo session! Let's choose a location that is meaningful to you and your loved ones (or I will share one of my favorite spots) and we'll capture some amazing photos while we're there. Check my schedule to get things started and I will be in touch with the rest of the details!
