Mt. Seven is an iconic destination in Golden BC. It’s also one of my favourite locations for family photography in the Rocky Mountains.
Originally used as a fire lookout in the 70’s, Mt. Seven is now a popular destination for people who love to hike, bike, paraglide, and sightsee. As long as you are comfortable driving mountain forest service roads, the summit is a great place to take in a view of the Columbia Basin. Since it’s such an easy-access and high-reward scenery, this is one of my go-to locations for great family photos in the mountains!
Mt. Seven in Golden BC
Amongst locals, Mt. Seven in Golden BC is well used and loved. This local peak is a mountain bike, paraglider, and hiker’s paradise. Even for myself as a family photographer, Mt. Seven is a dream and one of my favourite photography locations.
For me, there are a few things that make a great family photo location. But two of the most important things are that we can easily drive there and that there is a great mountain view. While the road to Mt. Seven is a bit long and bumpy, it is still accessible via car. As long as we take it easy and you are used to dirt roads, getting up the Mt. Seven road for your family photo session should not be a problem.
Family Photography in the Golden BC Rocky Mountains
This mama is from Australia and really wanted a great mountain view for her family photos. It was important to her to share the beauty of where she lives with her family back home. Earlier this year, they welcomed their son Charlie, but haven’t been able to share him with his grandparents yet thanks to the pandemic.
Since Mt. Seven has one of the best mountain views in Golden, we drove up there early one morning for their family photos. We spent a lot of time taking in the view and chatting about how lucky we are to live here in Golden BC. I know their family back home will just love to see these photos. I hope they are able to reunite very soon.
When in Golden, BC we are visitors to the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Ktunaxa peoples.
