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 I would not recommend it on a weekend in the summer or fall, since it can be tough to find parking.

This trail meanders along Boulder Creek and has a magical forest feeling. It is wonderful any time of year, and it’s perfect in morning or evening. The trail is flat and easy, so it's perfect for older folks and toddlers. In late summer bring bug spray, there are lots of mosquitos!

NCAR

This spot is stellar at any time of day. There's a 1/4 mile loop that is has an amazing view. It's especially beautiful in the winter. It has a bit of an incline, but it's not too steep. 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.

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.

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, and in the fall, the cottonwoods do not disappoint.

OXFORD ROAD FARM

I love this private farm for its lush greenery and beautiful pond. It is located on the edge of North Boulder and Longmont.

SUGARHILL STUDIO:

This indoor studio has a changing area and beautiful natural light, and is perfect for portraits or products any time of year.
