The day of this family lifestyle photography session was a stormy one! My family had been out to eat earlier in the afternoon, sitting out on the patio and got poured on…oops! Since Tariq’s mother was in town we were going to do everything we could to get this session in so we determined it would be a game time decision. Thank goodness we did because it ended up being beautiful partially sunny skies for the duration of the hour session at the South Mesa Trailhead in Boulder, CO.
While I had met Rachel previously, this was my first time meeting the rest of her family. I have to say this family sure knows how to enjoy themselves and have fun with each other. There was so much playing and giggles that I couldn’t help myself but smile the entire time I was editing this session just remembering it all.
There are so many scenic places to stop and photograph at this location. We initially found a path that lead down to the river, then it circles around back to the main trail with this amazing bridge. If you follow the path up you come to an opening with an old building and an open field with a view of the majestic Flatiron mountains behind it. It was a great place for the Sheikh family to play around and enjoy themselves a bit.
Thanks for making it so much fun to do my job Sheikh family!
