Are you visiting Colorado Springs this year?
A Colorado Springs vacation is the perfect opportunity to capture family photos with some of the most stunning backdrops the United States has to offer. From the awe-inspiring formations at Garden of the Gods to the majestic views of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs vacation photo sessions promise to provide truly stunning family photos. In addition, capturing unique family photos it is a chance to preserve memories from your vacation.
Booking Your Vacation Photo Session
Timing is everything when it comes to capturing the perfect shot, especially on vacation. To ensure your family’s adventures are beautifully captured, booking your photography session 6-12 weeks in advance is crucial. This lead time guarantees your preferred date and time, allowing you to seamlessly integrate the photo session into your vacation plans. Summer months are my peak season for vacation photo sessions, making early booking essential for those months. If possible I recommend leaving another free evening as a backup date incase weather is an issue. I try my best to work around the weather and still do your session on the date we planned but it is always good to have a back-up. My summer calendar will open mid April. If you would like to get on my calendar before that just send me a message through my contact form.
Preparing for the Adventure
A vacation photography session in Colorado Springs is as much about the experience as it is about the final photos.
Here’s how to ensure your session is a smooth and enjoyable adventure:
Comfortable Footwear: Given that your session will include exploration of natural trails, wearing comfortable shoes is a must. You may even want to wear walking shoes and change into your session shoes after we hike to our location.
Bring Water: Colorado Springs’ elevation can be challenging for those not accustomed to it. Given our dry climate and high altitude it’s easy to get thirsty here, especially when hiking and exploring. Most of my locations are not close to parking so it’s important to bring everything you need, including water.
Layered Clothing: The area’s weather can change quickly, so dressing in layers allows for easy adjustments, ensuring comfort no matter the weather.
Capturing Your Colorado Springs Vacation Photo Session
Colorado Springs family photo sessions are designed to be laid-back and fun. This allows your family to fully enjoy the beauty around you. As we venture through iconic locations like Garden of the Gods, I aim to capture natural, candid moments that reflect your family’s unique story and the joy of your adventures. Most of my locations are in lesser known areas, which we typically have to ourselves. These sessions are more than photo ops. They are an invitation to explore, connect, and create lasting memories in some of the most picturesque settings.
Why It’s Worth It
These pictures will be reminders of your time exploring and enjoying each other in a stunning setting. As you get ready for your trip to Colorado Springs, think about how much a photography session will add to your adventure. It’s not just about the photos—it’s about capturing the joy, discovery, and wonder of your family’s experience. With a bit of planning and a sense of adventure, you’ll come away with memories that are both beautifully preserved and deeply personal, to be looked back on and cherished for years to come.
