Durango CO Photographers do emergency family portrait

My husband and I are Durango CO Photographers where the mountains are high, the snow is plentiful, and the grass is green (at least during the summer).

I received a phone call from Elisha who wanted to have photographs taken of her family, which includes her boyfriend Steven, and their son Yuri. They live 3 hrs away from us, but wanted to do the session the next day and were more than willing to make the drive. You see, their son was due to have surgery the day after the session to correct the shape of his forehead and they wanted photos of him before. I was more than willing to get them set up.

Elisha, Steven, and Yuri

They like to watch tv together, with Yuri being a screamer, and Steven laughing all the time, that might be difficult. Elisha is the calming effect on the family. Elisha like to bake and read, while Steven like to play on line games and listen to music. This is the first time they’ve had a family portrait taken.

We went to three different locations so they would have lots of variety in their portraits. They love them.

Yuri was a very cooperative baby.

They wanted to sit on these rocks even though they were covered in snow and ice. They’re sitting on a coat and plastic garbage bag that I brought for that purpose.
