It was a beautiful evening up Big Cottonwood Canyon for some family photography at the Jordan Pines Campground. This area brings together everything that makes mountain photography beautiful, namely: open fields, mountain vistas, wonderful pine trees, and even a lazy mountain stream! Add in that the fall colors were starting to take shape and you can count on the fact that Jordan Pines is an absolutely beautiful spot for family photography.
If you haven’t been up there, it is about 10 miles from the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, a quick 15 minute drive up the canyon and away from the city. That is one of the beautiful things about Utah living; you can be away from it all and up enjoying nature in just a few minutes. Incredible!
And, after extolling the wonders of the area, how about this wonderful family! I take their pictures each year, and every year it is always a pleasure to work with them. It has been really fun to watch their family grow!
