The Town of Golden is nestled right in the Rocky Mountains (and two other mountain ranges) and is home to Kicking Hores Mountain Resort. It is truly is one of the most beautiful places in the world and the best time to book family portraits.
The secret to great family lifestyle photos is to let everyone be themselves. Family dynamics will naturally take over and people will act as they always do. Those are the special moments I watch for: when people are being themselves.
