This is one of my favorite spots for family photos. It is gorgeous no matter what season of the year it is. Clear Creek runs through the heart of Golden, you can walk along the creek after visiting the shops downtown. Go just a little further, and you get this natural beauty with mountain views. A creek, mountains and greenery, it doesn’t get any better than this for mountain style family photos!
Just 30-minute drive from downtown Denver up i70 into the foothills sits this beautiful park in Genesee. It has an abundance of evergreens, rocks and trails to play on, hike on and take beautiful scenic family portraits. You might have to watch out for a herd of elk and deer, or who knows, maybe one will photo bomb your session!
Right past Buffalo Bills Museum is the incredible scenic Lookout Mountain Park. You can look over the city of Golden with a slight turn to your left for a gorgeous mountain view. With abundance of rocks and evergreens, this park offers a beautiful mountain session that can be bundled with a little visit to Buffalo Bills Museum!
You will enjoy the drive to Golden Gate Canyon State Park which is incredibly scenic. It is worth the extra drive time. The park has a low cost of $7 entry fee for the day where you can enjoy beautiful scenery, trails, fishing and family photos. I recommend the park in the fall as it has a variety of colors to work with.
Three sisters is probably the furthest you have to drive, but with a pit stop in downtown Evergreen for snacks and ice cream, the drive is well worth it. The park offers a rustic barn, mountain views, rocks and evergreens. This is a perfect place for a candid family mountain photo session as the kids will have fun the whole time.
