outdoor sessions

Choosing the right outdoor location for your pictures is important, but don't let it overwhelm you! You will be the focus of the pictures. My recommends are below with example links.

indoor sessions

There is an indoor studio option below for any session, any time of year. I love using the studio! Newborn sessions are done in your home.

senior pictures?

I have a separate list of recommended locations for high school seniors!


Most of the locations below do not require a city/county/private property permit. However, if you select a location that requires a permit, please know that we will need a few weeks to file for it. Also, the permit fee will be added to your invoice. You will see these locations indicated with a *permit required note.

trip fees

Most of the locations below will not require a trip fee. Trip fees start at $100 if they are greater than 20 miles from my home in Parker. Locations requiring a trip fee will be indicated by a *trip fee note.

castle rock 1

pine trees

A gorgeous forest of pines, full foliage, and dirt paths. This is a favorite in the fall, and especially once leaves have fallen in late fall because of the pines.

castle rock 2

rustic downtown

A rustic/country feel with building backdrops, including a white and metal barn. Within a short walk there are also some large rocks and a creek. If you like variety, this is a good option if you don't mind walking around to the various places of interest. Not suitable for small children due to the amount of walking.

Centennial 1

my favorite

This spot beautifully displays mature trees, dirt paths, wild grass, a bridge (best in certain light only), large rocks, and a creek. Great for a morning session too. If you are looking for nature, you will love it! This little gem is by far a favorite and recommended for anyone that is having a hard time deciding.

*This location is my recommendation for all outdoor sitter and one year sessions. I love the wild grass here for these sessions!

Centennial 2

barn + farmhouse

A red barn, silo, and historic white farmhouse featuring a large wooden porch. Trees and a creek are within walking distance, and give some variety to this location. There is a wonderful open field for sun drenched pictures when the sun is setting.

Centennial 3

fallen logs

Mature trees, wild grass, fallen logs, and a creek. In the spring there are bushes with white flower blossoms. One of my favorite spring locations, but beauitful all year round.

Centennial 4

indoor studio

A beautiful, indoor, nautral light, fully furnished studio rental. Great for family, or baby sessions. Details at the link below.

*Requires a studio reservation in advance - last minute bookings may or may not have availability
*Requires studio rental fees that begin at $112

Centennial 5 - NEW FOR 2024

Fallen logs, paths, and trees

This is a great spot for my nature loving families who have already done Centennial 1. Keep in mind there's a little bit of a walk to get to the fallen logs, mature trees, and long grass. Example shows a sunrise session, but this spot is gorgeous anytime!

highlands ranch 1

historic mansion

A beautiful historic mansion with rock and brick options and a unique iron gate. Nature surrounds the buildings. Formal or casual.

*Sometimes the mansion is closed for private events, including most Saturdays during the summer and fall. If you're interested in this spot, check the calendar for availability on your session date.

highlands ranch 2

canopy of trees

A perfect spot to capture a nature backdrop with a quaint dirt path. The grove of mature trees lining the path gives it a canopy feel. I love to stay in one place (the best spot) at this location. It's just a short walk from the lot.

littleton 1

small town urban

Multiple backdrops including brick, historic buildings, wall murals, and a ton of variety. Not as suitable for small children because it does require a good amount of walking. Clients gravitate toward this location when the leaves have fallen in later fall and winter. Lovely anytime of year.

littleton 2

wading creek

This shallow wading creek is perfect for families who want to get some playful moments of children in the water. This location also has a small train track. Great spot for children when it's warm. I recommend this location in summer months or early fall.

parker 1 - NEW FOR 2024

simple nature

A groves of trees for shade and long wild grass nestled along a dirt path. Simple, and perfect for the family that doesn't mind a short walk from the car, but then prefers to stay put once we reach "the good spot" (this can be a great strategy for little ones with shorter attention spans). The example pictures are in the fall, but it is beautiful all year long!

parker 2

country barn + nature

An off the beaten path location with a country feel featuring a cement colored barn with a red/white door. Within a short walk there are lovely trees and long grass for variety.


mountain views

A beautiful mountain setting with a view of the Flatirons. There are trails, mature bushes and foliage, a small rock structure, and a split rail fence. The mountains are only photographable once the sun dips behind the ridge. Therefore, if your session requires an earlier start time for any reason, it's not as likely we can capture the mountains on a sunny day.

*Requires a $100 trip fee + a $50 permit fee


mountains + creek

This spot is in the foothills with potential mountain views. There are some dirt paths and a creek with fallen logs. The mountains are only photographable once the sun dips behind the ridge. Therefore, if your session requires an earlier start time for any reason, it's not as likely we can capture the mountains on a sunny day.

*Requires a $100 trip fee + a $50 permit fee
