Lake Tahoe Fall Family Session

This is my second year working with this family. Let me just say that every single one of these kids (ALL 7 of them) belong in a Gap catalog. Give me all the heart eye emojis right now. I know it's not easy finding outfits with colors and patterns that compliment each other as well as the backdrop so major kudos to the mom!!!  This is the same spot I had my family photos shot at last year, it's really a beauty isn't it? You can't go wrong with aspens in the fall surrounded by tall dead grass and changing leaves.

Lake Tahoe Family Photos at Spooner Lake

  Can you say picture perfect catalog family?? This lovely family moved here recently from Utah and I am SO happy they asked me to photograph their family! The mom is a really talented photographer herself, so I was a little nervous starting out but they could not have been sweeter. These creamy neutrals with a pop of blue are some of my favorite color combinations and always flattering to the eye. This session was shot at Spooner Lake in Glenbrook Nevada, just minuets outside of Lake Tahoe in mid August.

Lake Tahoe Family Photo Session

This extended family photo session took place in Lake Tahoe, on the Nevada side near Secret Beach. Each summer I get to meet such fun and fabulous families that come in to town to visit the sparkling clear waters of Lake Tahoe. This darling family was visiting from Utah with their four sons and grandchildren. I am always so grateful when complete strangers reach out to me because they admire my work. Thank you Haslam family for your kindness and generosity. I hope you enjoyed your stay and will visit Tahoe often! My extended family sessions consist of large group photos, individual family photos, couple photos, and any other variations and candid shots we can squeeze in. These sessions tend to run just over an 1 hour. If you are interested in booking your own family session (extended or immediate) I would love to work with you!!

Reno Newborn Photography with Baby Waylon by Reno Tahoe Photographer

Reno newborn photographer. Reno Photographer. Lake Tahoe photographer. A few months back I photographed my first ever maternity milk bath session. Well now that little guy is here safe and sound. Since I started focusing my time mostly on wedding, engagement, and family sessions, I have not photographed newborn sessions lately. Also after trying to grow our family for 5 years straight with zero success, being around these precious little newborns was a tad heart breaking for me. As they say "time heals all wounds" I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Especially since I have a handful of newborn sessions on calendar for 2019. After some time off, I had forgotten just how tricky these newborn photo sessions can be. Therefore I thought I'd share 5 tips I've learned over the years with photographing newborns, and hope it might help any of you just starting out!    Sara's tips for a successful newborn photo session. Tip#1 Timing. I try to schedule my newborn photo sessions between day

Lake Tahoe Winter Engagement Photo Session with Jeff and Katie

I am totally obsessed with Jeff and Katie's engagement photos! Did you know I dream of winter wonderland engagement sessions all year long?!  Winter here in Lake Tahoe is simply magical. When I first met with this couple last fall, they told me they wanted to have a winter engagement shoot. With the second half of their photos to be themed. The bride mentioned she was having a cloak made and that her wedding florist/ coordinator (Quality Event Design) was going to do a little something. She tossed around ideas of candles and possibly even a red rose in a glass vase, like in Beauty and the Beast. I thought "Oh how fun! It's going to be beautiful". Fast forward 4 months and I show up to photograph. We started with fun and casual engagement poses and looks. Then Chrissy (owner of QED) and her team showed up. You guys....... I cried inside! The themed photos speak for themselves, so be sure to scroll all the way down. Also, I am

Lake Tahoe Family photo session with Reno Tahoe Photographer

I can't tell you how much I loved working with this family! They are SO similar to my own family. Growing up in a family of 7 kids, 6 girls and only 1 boy, but if you ask my mom she'll tell you that only having one boy was sometimes harder than all 6 girls combined! (I'm sure this young boy is an angel). Also, my only brother is the middle child and to make it even crazier my youngest sisters are twins. CRAZY right?!? So, this family is right up there with one of my all time favorite clients EVER. They are sweet as can be and picked one of my favorite secret hidden spots at Lake Tahoe to photograph at. This spot gives you the best of both worlds. You get a gorgeous view of the lake, plus mountains and forest scenery. Win-Win!!    Lake Tahoe family photographer, Lake Tahoe Family photos, Lake Tahoe Wedding photography, Lake Tahoe Photographer, Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Photographer, Tahoe Photography, Lake Tahoe Engagement, Lake
