Pearl Street Boulder Family Portraits

A Few Images from a Family Portrait Session

Strolling along Pearl Street in Boulder, Colorado

Pearl Street

Last fall I met up with one of my favorite mamas and her two sons to take family portraits as they strolled together along Boulder’s Pearl Street. (The west-end of Pearl Street is a nice spot for a portrait session because of the many large trees, the funky buildings, the brick…plus Spruce Confections Bakery is a great spot to meet up with clients or else wind down after a photo session…while enjoying their chocolate croissants!) The mom wanted a slightly urban location instead of one of the areas tried and true scenic parks.

Keeping it Casual

Walking around a city is a great way to help keep a photography session casual. I get to photograph families walking together and moving around (I love motion in photographs!) and then stop at places with good lighting or that are of interest to get some posed family portraits. You’ll see a mixture of this in the photos below.

And, as always, thanks to this lovely family. I so enjoy seeing you every fall!
