Johnson Extended Family Pictures Big Cottonwood Canyon Jordan Pines

January 16, 2020 Photography



Jordan Pines looks good all year round. This location is about 15-20 minutes up from the bottom of Big Cottonwood Canyon. Its right off the side of the road and you can park in the big parking lot. You do have to walk down to the areas, because cars are not allowed to park on the street past the gates. There are some areas where walking on the dirt paths, and up small hills will be necessary to get to certain locations. During certain times of the year, this location can be very crowded. Since its such a large area, its easy to find spots without people around.

There are NO dogs allowed in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

I do charge a travel fee to this area, because its it further than the 30 mile radius from my house.


I love this location up Big Cottonwood Canyon for extended family photo sessions. The openness makes it easy and beautiful to set up large groups, while also providing a lot of different backgrounds for variety.

This family was great to work with. I love families with lots of little kids, believe it or not! I think it makes the sessions fun! Each of these families were so nice and we had a good time taking pictures! Jordan Pines is so good for big group pictures because theres at least 3 different areas you can take the group to and get almost completely different backgrounds. Then it's fun to do little photo sessions with each family and all the other groups needed!
