Family portraits are non stop for me in the summer. So many families come to spend their summer vacation in Steamboat Springs, CO and what a better time, when everyone is together is such a beautiful place to get portraits done. It is always nice to meet my clients in a new location. The Skatell family was staying at a Chateau I had never been to in the past 20 years. The small yard around the property made for a wonderful backdrop, despite the sun trying to push its way into every image. A little fill flash and some back light, made for some nice romantic mid morning light.
