If you've followed me for a while, you've likely seen these faces a few times. I love photographing my cousin Matt and his family each year. This year we chose one of my locations for winter photo sessions in Castle Rock and they rocked it, per usual.
I almost never do this, but we scheduled their session in the late morning which meant that we were dealing with harsh sun. I know that some photographers won't schedule photo sessions outside of the golden hour at all, and I do try to schedule mine during that time whenever possible because the lighting is so much better, but sometimes schedules just don't allow for it for whatever reason. The good news is that with the right location, mid-day photo sessions are totally doable and can turn out great!
I love this location in every single season for it's versatility, shade options, and lack of heavy traffic. It also has this magical ability to give off fall vibes in the middle of winter! It's a beautiful little gem.
Matt and Jess: your family photos are always one of the highlights of my year. Thank you for trusting me to document your photos for the past decade! 💛
