Sunset in Estes Park, CO

I just returned from a photography retreat in Allenspark & Estes Park, CO where I spent the weekend with 10 other women from Indiana, Illinois, Nevada, Colorado, and Texas. When I discovered Sarah Cornish’s work I fell in love with her natural, lifestyle approach to family photography and little did I know I would be attending her retreat two years later! This sunset family session in Estes Park was one of the highlights of my trip… I loved shooting in a few different spots in the changing evening light. We started with the family standing, backlit with the strong sun, then moved to tall grass with diffused light from the trees. After a final 10-minute hike, we finished with some photos of just mom & dad with a spectacular view of the park as the sun set and the blue light crept in. This was my first trip to Colorado and it was as amazing as I had imagined.
