Hey friends, I hope you had a splendid weekend. But boo to Daylight Savings and our short winter days LOL! Today I am introducing you to the Scholtes family. I captured their colorful fall Lyons Colorado family pictures at the Lavern Johnson Park. Mom, Shannon, is a recently “retired” wedding photographer. We met years ago in some local photography Facebook groups. I had even assisted her and second shot a few weddings in the past. She did photography for a lot of years, and was just ready for a major life change! It’s sure an honor though, to be selected to take a colleague’s photos. Unlike your average client, they know a lot more about the technicalities of a good photo. So talk about pressure!
The Scholtes family was really awesome to work with, and they wanted to incorporate their precious fur baby into all of their photos too. We got a ton of variety during this shortened fall mini session. We took advantage of the colorful fall foliage, the river, the bridge. As as the cool rock formations, and they were even willing to sit on the ground in a giant pile of leaves for a few shots. They were all so photogenic and I loved the variety in color they chose for their outfits! Mustard, forest green, maroon, blue denim, and gray plaid. They all looked great!
This is one of my favorite images from these Lyons Colorado family pictures. So glad they were willing to sit in the leaves, it added those beautiful colors all around them! I just love the sweet connection and great expressions between them too.

Thanks again Scholtes family. Shannon, it was wonderful catching up with you and meeting your husband, kids, and pup. Hopefully we have future opportunities to work together again in the future. On the blog tomorrow, Tami and Bert’s frigidly beautiful winter maternity session in Estes Park.
