What a gorgeous setting for ANY portrait shoot.  I LOVE Lake Tahoe, and I love that we live so close to one of the most beautiful lakes in the world!





Butterfly Kisses | Reno, NV Family Photographer

Posted on July 3, 2010

Kissing shots can either be candid or “candidly posed.”  The trick is to be quick to capture the real candids and to make the candidly posed ones look real.  Families with young kids are quite easy to photograph kissing.  The great thing about young kids is that when you ask them to kiss their parents for a picture, they actually respond by kissing them for real, and that’s where the candid photo op comes in!





Father’s Day Present | Reno, NV Family Photographer

Posted on July 3, 2010

The photos from this session were meant to be a surprise father’s day present for the girls’ dad.  It was an eventful afternoon, with mom trying to convince the girls that this was a good idea.  I loved capturing that moment of surrender (total candid shot!) from mom, and then giving them a little time to regroup to take the rest of the photos.  Sometimes the best shots just happen when you least expect them.  Kinda sounds like life itself, doesn’t it??!?  😉
