From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Outdoor Family Photos with Beautiful Mountain Backdrop

These gorgeous family photos from Sharon Clark of smitten photography are beautiful on so many levels. From this darling little boy and his sweet parents Nikki and Britton, to the stunning outdoor setting with a mountain backdrop and charming apple orchard in Estes Park, Colorado, consider me "smitten", too! If dad Britton looks familiar to you, it might be because he plays in the NFL for the Denver Broncos. Sharon shared more with us about this shoot and the inspiration behind it:

"Since photographing their destination wedding in the Bahamas, I have been so excited for this beautiful couple to become a family of three! When Nikki and I talked about the vision for their shoot with 5-month-old Nash, she wanted to really capture the essence of the mountains and the glorious light that surrounds such a beautiful place. We ended up spending an entire afternoon driving through Estes Park, stopping along the way at an apple orchard on the side of the road. Nikki and Britton's style is very relaxed and natural and I couldn't have been more excited about these photos!"
