Denver Family Photo Session at Commons Park and Millenium Bridge

Updated: Dec 19, 2023

The Nguyen family loved their family photo session that we did in downtown Denver at Millenium Bridge and Commons Park. It’s a nice urban location for kids with many photo opportunities.

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.

The concrete under the bridge made for a nice spot to get the family posed.

A beautiful tree-lined pathway that runs along the river also made for some great photo opportunities. Both kids loved sitting up on Dad’s shoulders.

Walking along the pathway gave the kids a chance to get out some energy and not get bored during the shoot. Jason was full of energy that day!

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.
