E L L E // Creative Portraits | Lakewood, Colorado Photographer

A great shoot location in the Lakewood, Colorado area is Lakewood Heritage Center which is right next door to Bel Mar Park. I love that this Denver central location is just slightly west of the downtown area, not far from my Littleton or Highlands Ranch potential clients and just down the road from people in the Golden, Arvada and Englewood areas too! This is an ideal spot if you’d like some nature backdrops incorporated into your photos, but there are also some really neat structures and vintage looking buildings that can give some rustic textures to your session as well. And, I’ve even found I can mimic a slightly quaint urban vibe against the right walls in this area as well. Depending on the time of year, you can stumble upon wild flowers, tall grass fields, evergreen or crab apple trees, a lake, bushes, natural grasslands and a variety of trees, dirt paths and paved sidewalks, large rocks, open space and historic structures, tractors and other farm inspired buildings too. There’s honestly a little of everything and some fun surprises at this somewhat hidden gem of a photography shoot spot! Here’s a peek at some recent teen’s creative portraits I captured at this fun location. Can you see some of the variety of possibilities for backdrops, in these shots of Elle, if you choose this location for your own photo session? It’s one of my favorite locations to photograph Denver locals.
