Family photo sessions in the fall are the dreamiest am I right? This is the 6th year in a row that I have had the privilege to photograph this cute family. They will always have a soft spot in my heart as they have stuck with me from the very beginning. I can't thank them enough for all their support over the years. THANK YOU GUYS!!! They trusted me to pick the location, and this spot in Reno has been a favorite of mine for years. It's a goody all year round with gorgeous tree blossoms in the spring, wild flowers in the summer, and these colorful willow trees in the fall.
Sharing a few favorites from Michelle and Annie's photo session. Annie contacted me over the summer looking for updated head shots for her and her new business partner. Annie is a family physician from the Bay Area and Michelle has co-founded multiple small business start ups from Salt Lake area. Their most recent venture is Village Baby, it takes a village! Where they share information and inspiration for the journey of parenthood. With their newest blog post sharing 10 thing you don't need on a baby registry. These amazing and accomplished women are both moms of 3. I enjoyed meeting and getting to know them and all about their business. They wanted photos to show their fun but professional side, and also images highlighting their friendship. They were staying in Glenbrook (Lake Tahoe, NV) so we just walked out their front door and found some great back drops. As always, thank you for checking out the blog and viewing my work!
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
Reno Fall Family Photo Session This family photo session took place just outside of Reno Nevada, at Bower's Mansion. I met this beautiful woman last year at a Rising Tide Society group for small business owners. If you know her, you know how absolutely creative and talented she is! She's the owner and creator of Lahontan Letterworks. She designed my logo and my business cards. If you're a small business owner and looking for someone to collaborate with you should for reals, give her a call! I love photographing families and just letting them be in their element. Every family photo session is different. Because every family is different. I guide and pose but also allow for real smiles and movement. I'm so happy it's fall and excited to finish up this year strong. If you haven't booked your family photo sessions for this year yet, what are you waiting for?!?!
