Hiking at St. Mary's Glacier | Idaho Springs, Colorado | Maegan and Robb (and Cooper)

Excited to share another one of my Colorado hiking sessions today! This St. Mary’s Glacier session with Maegan, Robb, and their adorable mini-aussie Cooper is one of my favorites! Maegan is an old soccer friend of mine from when I lived in Tampa, and I don’t think we had seen each other since I left Florida in 2011. It was so nice to catch up, and to finally meet her husband Robb! (And Cooper of course, haha.) They had just moved out to Denver a few weeks prior, so it was perfect timing with my trip out there.

We all met up in Denver after Robb got out of work for the day, and drove up to Idaho Springs together to St. Mary’s Glacier. This hike was short, but the climb was really steep and rocky! Maegan did awesome in her boots, because even I was slipping and sliding in my hiking shoes. And it was chilly! The combination of high elevation and the setting sun made it A LOT colder than when we got in the car in Denver. But these guys had no complaints, just lots of smiles (and lots of cuddling to stay warm!)

So. Much. Goofiness. I loved it!

Cooper is so well-trained! He’s only 9 months old but already knows tons of commands. Like this one: “pose for your LinkedIn headshot.”

Cooper apparently loves to stand in between people’s legs, which is PERFECT for photos!

Hahaha Robb looks like he’s about to attack.

….with kisses obviously :)

“Robb, run your fingers through Maegan’s hair…”


That’s better!

I love Cooper’s smile in this one!!

And one last photo-op for Instagram photos before we made it back to the car. It was so much fun spending time on the trail with this little family, and catching up with an old friend!
