South mesa trailhead
South Mesa Trailhead is the most popular location for senior and other portrait shoots as it is the most diverse and has beautiful areas and light. It includes a bridge, fence, mountain backdrop, open fields, big rocks, a river, and much more. Any season is beautiful at South Mesa Trailhead. If your senior/portrait shoot is at South Mesa, you will not have to book a second location, as it has it all with the best light. South Mesa Trailpark is the most popular location and my favorite.
How to get there:
1.7 miles west of Highway 93 on Eldorado Springs Drive (Highway 170). (about half an hour from Broomfield)
Due to Covid, South Mesa requires all photographers to reserve a spot one week prior to the shoot, so let me know in time.
If you have booked this location with me, please meet me at the entrance of the park in front of the little parking lot. You will need $5 cash to park your car here. I will be waiting in front with my assistant and a purple wagon to carry all your clothes changes and other belongings. During COVID 19 everyone is required to wear a mask in the park. When I take pictures of seniors they can of course take their mask off.
All sessions I book are full sessions and last up to two hours. You can combine locations if you wish within those two hours. There are no limitations on clothes changes. I will bring a pop up changing tent for your convenience.
See below how to get there and some sample pictures of the area.
