In September of last year, I had the privilege of traveling to Estes Park, Colorado for a photography retreat on lifestyle family sessions. I actually won a seat to the retreat in an online giveaway from the host. The host was My Four Hens Photography. This was a such a gift. For one, in my eight years of business, I have never attended a photography retreat of any kind. For two, I actually knew the owner of My Four Hens Photography. We met several years back in Vegas during a WPPI convention at the beginning of my career. Sarah is a master at Lifestyle Family Sessions! Her work is incredibly beautifully. She also lives in my favorite state ever, Colorado!
This weekend of learning relaxing was the best weekend spent in my photography career in a while. It refreshed my soul! We were able to shoot alongside Sarah for three lifestyle family sessions. We also got to talk with her and pick her brain the entire weekend! I love her approach to photography! She really invests so much into every client. The moments we captured were raw and beautiful and exactly what I strive to connect with in my own photography.
Lifestyle Family Session at The Cabin
This lifestyle family session was done inside the cabin that we all stayed at. First of all, this cabin was so quaint and unique. I think it really helped to set the scene. It makes me wish we had more buildings like this in Las Vegas. This family was so natural in front of the camera. Mom really embraced connecting with her children and you can see that in so many emotions throughout.
Lifestyle Family Session at The Trailhead
The last session we had was at one of the trailheads outside Estes Park. The views here were absolutely amazing! You could not ask for a more scenic location and I am sucker for a good scenic view. This was also one of the sweetest families! I absolutely love their wardrobe styling for this session! So perfect! This is what it looks like when you show up and just love your people! My soul was filled and I am still longing to return to Colorado again!
