The S Family | Colorado Family Photographer | Colorado Engagement Photographer | Golden Gate Canyon State Park
The S family was one of my favorite families to photograph. Aimee reached out to me and asked me if we could do two mini sessions in one location. I loved this idea! We did a shoot with her and her fiancée and another shoot with her extended family. We did these shoots in Golden Gate Canyon State Park in mid-September. If you’ve never been to Colorado in the fall it is something you need to add to your bucket list. Fall in Colorado is absolutely stunning! The state is filled with gorgeous Aspen trees that turn bright yellow, orange and occasionally you will spot some red although it’s pretty rare. Consider yourself very lucky if you spot some red aspen leaves! Golden Gate Canyon was the perfect location to show off fall in Colorado. If you ever want to meet someone at this park I highly suggest you have an exact location specified because there is no cell phone reception in the park. We met at the visitor center and headed out to our first location. Our first stop was Ole Barn Knoll. This spot was filled with bright yellow aspen trees and mountain views. Here we did family pictures. We had one fussy little one but we were able to distract him and get some good laughs and genuine smiles! After this we dismissed half of the family so they could enjoy their sunny fall Sunday and so we could do some engagement photos! Aimee’s brother in law was a happy participant in the photo shoot but he was very happy to be finished and put on his Bronco’s jersey immediately! We headed up to Panorama Point to photograph Aimee, her fiancée Garrett and their son Deaglan. Here we had vast mountain views and beautiful trees. Deaglan was so happy to take photos with his Mom and Dad.
