A perfect little mountain-town family photo session!~ Sanders Family~ Lyons, Colorado

So….not only is this little dude one of the cutest little toddlers on the planet…I get to be his Aunty!!  Well…not by blood, but his mommy and I have been best friends since we were 11…so that pretty much makes me his Aunt!  Lucky us…little Jax is only 6 months younger than my boys, so we are totally stoked that they will grow up together!

When I first started taking photos, It was a bit awkward for me to do close family and friends sessions, because I always felt like I could just “take your picture anytime we hang out…”….but I soon found out, a.9 that never happens, and b.9 family and friends are dear to my heart, and deserve the same experience as all my clients!  So, I absolutely love when I get to share my passion with not only my new friends (new clients), but my oldest friends as well!

We met up in Lyons, which if you have never been…you must visit!  I am there often, as my parents live there now, but it is one of the cutest and perfectly located little mountain towns in Colorado! Right between Boulder and Estes Park…you can’t go wrong!  There are honestly too many places to take cute pictures there….I really need to start working full time out of Lyons! 😉

We started our session with a snack and local microbrew at Oskar Blues, and then headed out onto the Main street area, and then over to the river!  There is one specific Alley located right off Main street, that literally has every type of backdrop needed, in about 100 feet.  It’s awesome!

Jax did so well– and I loved getting to play with him and spend some time with him while not watching my own boys! 😉  Love you guys!  Enjoy!

(Watch out!   A few more pics than usual…I just felt compelled since they are family! 😉
