A piggyback ride and some monkey-ing around never hurt anybody! In fact, it’s goofy moments like those that bring a family together and make life sweet. Bethany and Joe’s family photo session at Meyer Ranch Park in Morrison, Colorado was anything but boring and serious. This family of four is just about as cute as it gets! The Location Meyer Ranch Park, as these photos prove, is not only a breathtaking outdoor location among changing fall leaves. This 624-acre park has 4.1 trail miles for walkers, hikers, bikers, and horse riders. Filled with aspen groves and pine forests, this place is sure to fill your lungs with crisp fall air and shadowy soft light. Goofy Games Given these fun outdoor features this park has to offer, it’s no surprise we were excited to join Bethany and Joe and their two children in the park for some picture-worthy shenanigans. If there’s one thing parents love most, it’s the sound of their children’s laughter. Bethany and Joe’s daughter and son were giggle monsters the entire time. Mom’s tickle fights and Dad’s upside down games are sure to make anyone laugh uncontrollably! While we swooned over this family’s silly fun, we couldn’t help
Octobers are for bursting colors on trees, hot tea cuddled under a blanket, and your favorite flannel and jean combo. Octobers, though, can also be for family outings for that perfect picture. We went to Meyer Ranch Park for the Grimes family photos among the yellow aspen trees. We loved capturing this family not only because of their amiable personalities and kindness, but also because they brought along two of our favorite things: an adorable little boy and dog! Something New: Meyer Ranch Park! One look at this location and you’re sure to be hooked. Meyer Ranch Park gave us the perfect blanket of fallen leaves and a most stunning backdrop of fall colors. Located just outside of Morrison, Colorado, this park proved both beautiful and peacefully quiet. We loved getting to know this new location full of aspen trees and cozy trails. As with most photo-shoots in the fall, we recommend wearing autumn-colored outfits with darker, moodier tones. Check out our post here about how to plan your family picture outfits! But, as these pictures will show you, any outfit will work with cheek-wide smiles and a few hugs and kisses! It's All Fun and Games! The Grimes’ baby boy really
Elegance in every twirl and tenderness in every kiss, Maureen and Andres’ engagement session at Clear Creek Trail was magic fit for a king and queen. These two looked stunning at this park in Golden, Colorado, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day with them. These lovebirds gleamed with joy at the prospect of their coming marriage, and we were happy to capture the moment! Clear Creek Class The Clear Creek trail is a favorite of ours, and one we return to time and time again. This October photo shoot gave us trees of bright yellow and orange. The creek’s water in the afternoon sun gave this couple regal halos and sparkling backdrops that we couldn’t pass up! And while the trail is full of walking trails and very close to the quaint town of Golden, the park is perfect for a photo shoot for any occasion, too. Check out Rachel and Justin’s maternity session at Clear Creek! Two Royal Sweethearts Maureen's long dress and elegant heels made her the most dazzling dancer in all the land. With Andres’ dapper suit and spunky red socks, this pair looked almost more perfect than the stunning Colorado backdrops we captured.
