Recommendations for locations
Glenmere Park- is one of Greeley’s best spots to shoot anytime of the day because there is so much even lighting throughout the park. The mature tall trees and pine trees create lots of nice shade through out the park. It has a small bridge where a little pond runs by it. The small island in the middle of the lake makes a nice backdrop. There is a big gazebo and cemented pathways. It is ideal anytime in the year. Located in Glenmere Boulevard between 14th and 17 ave.

Do you have a location?
When it comes to choosing locations,
don't be afraid to Think outside the box!
I encourage you to brainstorm unique places that you might have special access to that most people don’t. For example, maybe you (or someone you know) have access to an amazing location that would otherwise be off-limits, like a beautiful private estate, family ranch, exclusive country club or luxury resort. Spend a few minutes thinking about it and checking around with people in your personal and professional network. You’ll be surprised with what you come up with! If something seems out of reach, just remember: you never know until you ask!
If you need some location ideas and inspiration, I have plenty! If there’s a certain session you really love, just let me know which one and we can go to that location!
