Montrose Senior Portraits

Fall sessions are SO beautiful but can be a bit of a challenge, especially here in Colorado. We usually get a couple of weeks of fall color before the snow hits and that’s it. So, if you know me at all you will know that I’m a bit of a nervous wreck when it comes to scheduling these sessions. I try to play it all cool and calm but on the inside…it’s panic mode!

Thankfully, this year we had a beautifully, long fall season and I was able to fit in all of my sessions and hit all the fall color for everyone. For this particular session, we went up in the mountains to one of the beautiful mountain getaways, Elk Mountain Resorts, just outside of Montrose and caught the aspens at peak color! It was absolutely stunning! And Gunnison is a bit of an explorer so this was right up his alley. We walked around the grounds here for a bit…they even let us park his jeep on the helipad(!!!) and then we drove back to town to do some fun artsy stuff.

Gunnison is a bit of a photography buff himself so we had to have some shots of him with his camera, and he works at the visitor’s center here in town so that was part of his session as well. Downtown Montrose has several really cool old buildings that make fun backgrounds and I love to use them whenever I get the chance, and he really liked the history and preserving the memories of the town the way it is right now, while he is living and working here.

So, if you know Gunnison, give him a shout out. If you want to follow him on Instagram while he is starting out on his photography journey, his account is @gunnison_c_photography. Let him know I sent you over…and tell him which photo you love the most…that he took. And if you want an amazingly beautiful get away…that’s really close to home (Montrosians) Elk Mountain Resorts is just 45 minutes away.

    Candace, I love your senior photos in Montrose and the fall colors are just perfect for this senior guy! I’m partial to car photos, so of course my favorite is the one with his Jeep!
