Garden of the Gods is a staple location here in Colorado Springs. There are so many great “spots” to take family photos all within the park. This is my first family session of the season here, but certainly not the last (I think I have three currently on the schedule). We had originally planned on going to Rock Ledge Ranch right by the Garden of the Gods entrance, but it was blocked off so we made the flexible decision to just head into the park. I’m so glad that we did. The west side of town gets some really beautiful evening light – the tricky part is that when the sun starts falling, it drops quick. We had such a short window of time for my favorite shot from the shoot, but we nailed it. Fist pump and high fives!
Family Photography, Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Leocadia PhotographyThis is the Moyes Family. You may recognize Kyle from his senior session we did earlier in the season. We did a few family shots at Kyle’s senior session but decided we needed to add a few extra to round out the choices. Evan and I had so much fun waiting for the sun to fall to the right spot, he did some rock climbing and we were able to add a few extra shots of him. He was hilarious – he gave me a different face with every click of my shutter, but with that kind of commitment, the giggles are bound to set in. Family Photography, Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Leocadia PhotographyWe even added an extra shot of Kyle to the mix. Variety is the spice of life, so they say, so why not have a quick senior picture in Garden of the Gods. Family Photography, Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Leocadia Photography We finished with one more family shot. I know I’ve said before that I’m not normally one for black and white, but boy if this last shot doesn’t stand out. It’s pretty in color, but it’s stunning like this. Family Photography, Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Leocadia PhotographyThank you Moyes family for choosing me (again) to do your family photos. If you’d like to book a 2015 family photo session, times and space are limited so contact me soon to make sure that we can get your session done in time for Holiday Cards!
