Southerland Family – Maternity and Baby Photo Sessions | Reno, NV Maternity and Baby Photographer

Posted on April 15, 2011

One of my favorite things about my job is getting to know people at a more intimate level by having the privilege of photographing the growth of their families.  I love it when I get to do a maternity shoot, and later on get to take baby’s first photos as well as photos of him every month of his first year.  You will get to see more of baby M this year, because I’ve been honored to be asked to document the first year of his life, one month at a time.  How could I possibly tire of such a cute little munchkin?  He’s just absolutely gorgeous!





Alice’s Piano Shoot – Sneak Peek! | Reno, NV High School Senior Photographer

Posted on April 7, 2011

I did Alice’s senior portraits at the end of last year, but one of her most special talents is playing the piano.  Unfortunately, we have been unable to find just the right piano to include in her photos… until recently, when I stumbled upon this little waiting area at a local hotel/casino with a grand piano sitting solitary next to some giant glass windows and perfect light.  Let’s just say we “snuck in” to take a few shots, but there was no sign there that said we weren’t allowed to ;-)





Brandon & Caitlin’s Engagement Portraits – Sneak Peek! | Reno and Lake Tahoe Engagement Photographer

Posted on April 7, 2011

The transition period between winter and spring here in Reno is always a tough time for location photographers.  You never know until the day of the shoot whether or not you will be needing a thick coat and snow boots, a raincoat, or shorts and flip flops.  Brandon and Caitlin were nice enough to work with Mother Nature’s crazy schedule, even though she did give us a nice dumping of snow just a few days before their engagement session.  I love the “Twilight” feel to the shots, mostly because I am in love with the Twilight series ;-)  Lake Tahoe was also gorgeous this time of year, with the snowcapped mountains making for a great backdrop for pictures.
