G Family {Boreas Pass}

Boreas Pass has a great mountain view of Breckenridge, however it also has great trees! The day we did this session was after a pretty decent storm, so the trails were very powdery. We chose a road that had been plowed but the trees were still beautiful! Doing pictures right after a storm is so great, the trees are covered in snow!

H Family {Boreas Pass}

I met up with this wonderful family at the end of December. We had planned for the mountain view on Boreas Pass, but there were a lot of clouds and the view was not great. We decided to walk out there anyway after shooting in the trees for a but to see how it was. Well, we actually had a bit of a view but wow was it windy! We took a few shots and went back into the trees.

Winter Elopement in Breckenridge

Early in December I met up with this couple at a rental house in Breckenridge to take some Elopement pictures. It was a blustery, cold and snowy day so they decided to have the ceremony inside. Here are just a few from the day.

Ideas For A Really Cold Day

Do you have a session scheduled and the weather is really cold? Unfortunately that happens here in the mountains. Maybe, you don’t have time in your vacation schedule to reschedule your session. Well, I have tried to come up with some ideas to avoid crying kids.

  1. Let’s go sled riding! We could hit up some of the sledding hills, or lets chat and find someplace more secluded without a bunch of people around. We will play in the snow, go sledding, make snow angels, etc…
  2. Maybe there is an activity that you have planned or wanted to do. I could plan to meet you before or after your activity. A good example of this is going on a sleigh ride!
  3. Ice skating! We have an indoor rink in Breckenridge if the weather is that bad that you need an indoor activity. Another idea is the outdoor rink at the base of peak 8. Do you have your own skates? If so, there is a pond in Frisco where you can skate.
  4. Go cross country skiing or snowshoeing! Get that blood flowing and warm up.

I guarantee that if your kids are doing something fun, such as sledding there will be less tears and more smiles!

Here are a few sledding pictures to give you an idea!

How To Dress For A Winter Session

Pay attention to the weather! If it’s going to be sunny and 40, then it may not be an issue. However if it is in the 20s and windy, come dressed appropriately! Little one scan’t hide that cold very well. They will either cry or it will show in their face. Keep them bundled up! If you need to come in the winter coats and snow pants so be it! We can even get some pictures playing in the snow.

At this session was in the 20s, and windy. The wind chill must have been about 10! But this little guy was so chill! Keep those little kids warm! Bring gloves/mittens and hand warmers!
