It was a typical Colorado spring day—sunny and windy. Perfect for a family portrait session, right? Well maybe…
We met at Chautauqua Park in Boulder to begin our family portrait session. The family requested outdoor photographs in a setting that showed off some of Boulder’s iconic landscape, the Flatirons. The timing of the session was not very flexible because not only were Mom, Dad and Bella going to be photographed, but both grandmothers were to be a part of this family portrait session too. One lives in Boulder as well, but the other was visiting and we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to capture everyone.
Earlier, the day seemed perfect. The sun was shining and a few fluffy clouds filled the sky. As we gathered all the items in the parking lot, the wind began to pick up. Instead of heading into the wind tunnel in the field to capture the classic Boulder family portrait with the Flatirons backdrop, we retreated to a brick wall with a little wind protection. That is when Bella started working it for the camera.
Are you wondering what is attached to the thing in Bella’s hand? It is Louie—the family dog and one of Bella’s best friends.
Thank you for a fun and adventurous afternoon of shooting.
