Fall is a very popular time for Denver families to request photo shoots. Living close to downtown Denver, I’m familiar with a lot of good urban locations which some Denver Moms love as a photo backdrop.
Millenium Bridge/Commons Park near the Platte River is a fun spot with lots of different visually appealing aspects to it. I recently photographed the Nguyen family there. Huyen, her husband Truong, and their two kids Jennifer, 2, and Jason, 4, were all in for this urban shoot!
When we first arrived, we had to walk a little ways from where we parked to get to the interesting parts of the park. Our first spot was a fun little nook beneath the stairs that made for a nice concrete backdrop.
As we made our way to the stairs that go up to the bridge, we stopped for some photos where there is a kid-friendly water feature and some cool red vertical poles that the family enjoyed playing around.
The final part of the shoot we headed to the bridge where we got the nice family portrait at the top of this page, but we also got some fun candid ones.
