LOCATIONS

I have many beloved locations around Boulder Valley. Here are some of my favorites (click on the pictures for more examples!):

01.

SOUTH MESA TRAILHEAD:

This location has it all – aspens, meadows, a creek and mountain views. It’s great in the morning or evening, and any time of year. Only two drawbacks – it does get muddy and on weekends it can be tough to find parking.

This trail meanders along Boulder Creek and has a magical forest feeling. It’s perfect in morning or evening. In late summer bring bug spray, there are lots of mosquitos! This is my favorite location for head shots.

NCAR:

This spot is stellar at any time of day. There's an easy 1/4 mile loop that is has an amazing view. The rocks, tall grass and beautiful trees give lots of variety too.

CHAUTAUQUA

If you want Flatiron Views, this is your spot. It can be very crowded, but I’ve learned where some of the sneaky spots are. Best light is in the evening.

05.

SETTLER'S PARK:

This spot requires some rock scrambling, but it's worth the hike as the top is stunning. Not well suited for elderly or babies though. It's also a short walk to Boulder Creek, feature right below...

03.

SHANAHAN RIDGE

I recently discovered this spot, which is tucked away in residential neighborhood in South Boulder. It has a gorgeous view of the Flatirons which is beautifully different from the traditional view. In the spring, the wildflowers are gorgeous.

OXFORD ROAD FARM

I love this private farm for its lush greenery and beautiful pond. Available for $50/session and located on the edge of North Boulder and Longmont.

SUGARHILL STUDIO:

This indoor studio in Longmont is available for an extra fee ($60/hr on weekdays and $85/hr on weekends). It has a changing area and beautiful natural light, and perfect for portraits or products any time of year.
