Locations for Senior Portraits in the Colorado Springs Area

Coloradans are blessed to have plenty of gorgeous outdoor locations to photograph!

Here are a few (but not all!) locations to choose from.

Bear Creek

The Bear Creek Nature Center is located at Lower Camp and Bear Creek Roads. The Nature Center has trails, a creek, bridges, and natural grass fields, also great for senior photos.

Downtown Colorado SpringsDowntown Colorado Springs Senior Photographer

Downtown has a ton of locations in a small area that offer a variety of metropolitan looks for your senior photos. Stairs, alleyways, busy sidewalks, murals, boutique shops; all are available to fit your personality. Parks offer plenty of greenery, and building created with brick, stone, and metal are all around you for that perfect senior portrait.

Ute Valley Park

While I love all these locations, my favorites are the ones that seem the least likely to be a photographic spot: flowers growing on the side of the road, an outside wall of a building, reflection of a window. You are the main focus of your senior portraits, so the background should complement you.
