If you have ever been to Boulder you would know that a visit here isn't complete without a leisurely hike or a picnic in Chautauqua Park. The park is a gateway to the Flatirons, with sweeping mountain views. I come here often for shoots but on this summer day, the Wood Family had the best. The weather was utterly perfect with a cool breeze and only a few puffy clouds all afternoon. This young family made my job easy, by being so cute and photogenic.
