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.

FRONT SIDE OF 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...

BOULDER CREEK:

I like to start at Eben G. Fine Park and work my way up the creek. This is one of my favorite spots for senior pictures.

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.
