Heather + Don: Engagements + Family Session in Castlewood Canyon

Green trees, grass, and flowers- sounds like the perfect setting for pictures huh? What about trees in the winter, brown grass, and dead leaves? No? Well, I’d have to disagree:-) After 4 years of spending countless hours behind the lens I now see beauty in all four seasons Colorado has to offer. In fact, I think some locations actually have more to offer in seasons outside of the summer. One of those locations happens to be Castlewood Canyon. It just has a little something extra this time of year- color! Brown, yellow, orange, and yes even a little bit of green. So, when Heather & Don decided to take their engagements and family pictures out at Castlewood Canyon I thought it was perfect. The day was a little different than our typical engagement session. Since both Heather & Don have children that will be part of their new life together it only made sense for them to want to include the family. So, we went ahead and just scheduled a separate family session for the same day. This way they could still have some photos of just the two of them and some of the family as well. I have to say, and I’m sure Michelle will agree, that this was probably one of the easiest family sessions I’ve ever photographed. Sometimes it can be difficult to work with a lot of people but not these guys- everyone was so easy to work with! We had a great time not only with the family but also with the time we spent with just Heather & Don. In fact, I walked away with some of my new favorite pictures of all time- the ones with the sunflare will definitely be in my permanent portfolio! We are very excited for their wedding next month at the Manor House– check back for those pics after the wedding in May.

Dusty, the images look great! What a cool family. And the new blog looks great, too, by the way!
