Colorado Senior Portrait, River Senior Portrait

Rachel, a Mead High School senior, knew exactly what she wanted for her senior portrait, making my job almost too easy. As we photographed I learned why this place in Lyons, Colorado, along the St. Vrain River was so special to her family. It’s where they picnic, spend holidays in the summer, and very near where her parents once lived. Now, a couple months later it’s hard to believe this location is vastly different.

The water was no longer this calm a month later.

Lyons was one of many towns that were impacted when water tore through Colorado. The flooding has since changed the course of the river, ripped the banks away, and changed people’s lives in an instant. Looking back now I’m fortunate we were able to make a memory here for Rachel before it was too late. It may take years before we can do it again.
