I was asked to to take photos for a family travelling to Aspen Colorado from Texas. They were staying in Basalt and asked if we could shoot there but I suggested downtown Aspen as Aspen Mountain makes a fantastic backdrop. I spent a few years working as a snowboard instructor for Ski Aspen Snowmass and know the area well. We met at Paepcke park gazebo a famous picture scene you will see on postcards. There was just enough snow covering the ground to make it look wintery.
It was here I met Malakai a fun 3 year old who was the centre of attention and stole the show. I love meeting new people and learning a little bit about their life and hearing how their vacation is going. It was their first time in Aspen and after the gazebo we headed to the downtown area.
The ice skating rink was just start starting to freeze and standing in front of it makes a good photo I think. I got lucky with cloudy skies so i was able to choose more locations than if it had been a bright sunny day.
After taking a few more family photos and a seniors session we wrapped it up as Malakai was tired and it was starting to get cold. I edited the photos and uploaded them all to an online album the next day.
If you would like a family, seniors or engagement photo session in Aspen please contact me and will reply within 24 hours
