Where to Take Family Photos in Colorado Springs

Stephanie Lynne is Colorado Springs family photographer also specializing in maternity, birth, and newborn photography.  Providing a joy-filled, natural session, capturing memories that create timeless photos to cherish. But the number one question I get from clients is, where do I take family photos in Colorado Springs?

As a Colorado Springs family photographer I have had the opportunity to photograph beautiful families in some gorgeous locations. There are so many beautiful locations within the Colorado Springs area, but today I am going to highlight some of my favorite locations that my clients can choose from.

When you decide to hire me as your photographer, I know you have a vision of what you want your photos to look like. Maybe you fell in love with some friends photos that I captured, or fell in love with the photos you see on my website. Either way, I want to make sure we find a location and backdrop that fits your vision. I want you to imagine your family in the moment, creating lasting memories while I capture gorgeous photos for you.

Keep in mind the following locations are just ideas, and I am always willing to travel to other locations (think your home, your backyard, downtown city environment, your favorite park, etc.). These just happen to be some of my favorites in the area.

Keep in mind that these are samples. Lighting and time of the year play a huge role in photos, and although I will do everything I can to duplicate some of your favorite photos that you come across, I, unfortunately, can’t control Colorado weather and the position of the sun. But luckily with over 300 sunny days a year, it’s likely that the weather will be in our favor!

Location 1

Gorgeous Forest-Scenery.

Being that we live in the gorgeous state of Colorado, most clients tend to immediately want mountain views for their photos, but this is one of my favorite locations despite not having mountain views. The trees, the greenery, and the gorgeous light dabbling through those tall trees, make for very dreamy, classic family photos. Imagine you dancing with your littles, laying out on a blanket giggling, skipping through the trees. There is no doubt that this location will provide a gorgeous backdrop for your family photos.

Location 2

Beautiful Open Space With Mountain Views.

The Pictures and description is all you really need to understand the beauty of this location. It’s unique and adds for a fun vibe. Nestled in the northern part of Colorado Springs you would never know this was here. It is a small area, and doesn’t have a lot of variety, but it does allow for gorgeous photos year round.

Location 3

Park With Rocks and an Unbelievable City and Mountain view.

This location is gorgeous in so many ways. There are several different areas that we can photograph to make for a wide variety of photos. You can’t beat the view and the gorgeous trees surrounding it.

Location 4

Beautiful Park With Mountain Views and Trails

Beautiful Park with multiple hiking trails and different spots to photograph in. This park is a little more wide spread and we will do some walking to explore and find gorgeous spots to take your photos. The mountain views and gorgeous, but you will need to expect a small uphill walk to reach the peak point for mountain views.

Location 5

Gorgeous Park with a Tree-Covered Area as well as Mountain Views.

Gorgeous park with a tree-covered area as well as mountain views. This is probably my favorite location for Fall photos.

Location 6

Open Field With Sweeping Mountain Views

Beautiful open field with views of the mountains and US Air Force Academy. Very fun, light and airy location. Little trees, but the most gorgeous views. The photos will really focus on you, your family and your love.

capture life as it is now

I love working with families who want to capture life as it is now. Because in the blink of an eye, “someday” becomes a year from now. Throughout the tiresome days, tiny but meaningful moments are happening within your family that you won’t want to miss out on capturing. Things you don’t know you’re missing are the things you’ll always want to remember. The kiddos grow so much year to year and it is important to capture them in this season of life, whatever season that might be.


“My husband and I are awkward, will you tell us what to do?” Of course! I don’t like to do unnatural or super posed shots, but I will give you some light direction on how to stand or position yourselves so there are no awkward photos. I’ll encourage kids to relax, play and snuggle up with mom and dad. Tickle fights, silly words, or big bear hugs happen on the regular to capture the most authentic and genuine smiles. Don’t worry I’ll let you know if you’re doing something funny with your hands, or have a goofy face. I’m here to capture joy while making sure you look good! 

Family Photgraphy



As a family photographer and a mom of 4 kids, I am drawn to those candid moments, but I understand that most clients want classic, look at the camera and smile shots, too. We will do a mixture of both styles, with various backgrounds so you have a variety of images to choose from in your final gallery. I know my favorites won’t always be your favorites. If you prefer more candid than posed, or vice versa, just let me know either at booking or at the start of your session and I’ll make sure I capture photos you will love and cherish. 

A photography session should not only produce beautiful images, but it should also be an enjoyable stress free experience. Online Booking, joyful sessions, optional short films, and digital downloads make everything simple and fun!

Let’s make some memories!
