Lani & Scott’s anniversary session at Cathedral Rock with their toddler

When Lani and Scott said they wanted to combine their Cathedral Rock anniversary session with their first family pictures with their little girl, I knew we were going to a a fun filled relaxing day exploring the lower levels of the trail.

We began the afternoon at one of the lesser traveled bike trails below the main rock formations of Cathedral Rock so we could have more privacy. Lani’s best friend (and hairdresser!) came along to help with their sweet little girl. (Pro-tip- I highly suggest bringing along a family member or close friend to sessions if you have super young kiddos or pets that require a bit more attention so you can be more relaxed!) While the main trail was bustling with activity, we had the offshoot all to ourselves except for the occasional mountain biker. Their little one was able to explore along the path with mom and dad while the light afternoon sprinkle graced us with a gorgeous rainbow over Courthouse Butte in the distance.

After a quick bite to eat and wardrobe change into a long lace dress, we headed up to the lower plateau section of the Cathedral Rock trail for dancing at sunset and an incredible moon rising as we ended our day together.
