Reno Fall Family Session | Galena Creek Park | Reno - Lake Tahoe Family Photographer

Wow!

It has been a CRAZY fall season! I have been booked every weekend since October! So freaking thankful for all my amazing clients! It’s been amazing and so much fun seeing old clients and meeting new ones! Everyone has been amazing!

I now have sooo much I need to get up on the blog!

So excited to have this family up on the blog once again! Haley and Alex were my first ever Reno clients! It’s been so much fun capturing their growing family these last 4.5 years! I legit look forward to their fall family photos every year! Last year we had snow and hot coco at Tahoe Meadows, and his year we had a chilly morning in the woods at Galena Creek Park! So much fun!

Mr. E is quite the character! His thing these days is putting snacks in his pocket. Typical guy - always needs to have some food on the go! We had fruit snacks at the session, and he of course made sure he put one in his pocket for later! I cannot wait to see him grow through the years!

How cute are Alex and Haley?! They’re always picture perfect and the way they look at each other - so much freaking love!

Haley is owns Lux.Studios in Fernley, NV. Anyone who knows me, knows I have trust issues when it comes to who does my hair. For two years, I would drive back to Redding to see my hair gal. She ended up moving to Eureka and told me I needed to find someone in Reno. So now Haley gets to pamper my locks - and she does a FANTASTIC job! So if you’re looking for someone - give her a try!

Thank you Alex and Haley for trusting me through the years with your family moments. I am so happy to still be capturing you and your little family, and I cannot wait to for the years to come!

Summer Reno Wedding | Galena Fish Hatchery | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged a wedding! Joey and Kim’s wedding is the perfect one to put up here - so here it is! Enjoy!

This Reno summertime wedding was perfect in all aspects. The venue, Galena Fish Hatchery, is always an amazing location to shoot at. It’s nestled in the Galena Creek Park and surrounded by gorgeous trees and the light in the evening is ahhhh-mazing! For months, Kim had been talking about wanting a smoke bomb for photos, and we made it happen (without getting in trouble with the rangers). It was stunning and perfect in every way.

Okay - lets talk about Kim’s dress. Holy moly was it amazing and stunning! It was perfect for her and she looked like a goddess. I loved that her bridesmaids’ dresses were a similar cut, and again were absolutely perfect. The color of the dresses complimented the venue and backdrop perfectly. Lets not forget about the guys! Joey’s blue suit was perfect (FYI - blue suits are my new favorites to photograph for weddings).

Lets talk about the food…

STREET TACOS.
CHURROS.

That’s all that needs to be said about the food. Seriously the best churros I’ve ever had. I’m ruined - I want fresh churros all day every day - thanks a lot Kim!

So yeah, the wedding was perfect. It’s one of my favorites to date and I cannot wait for them to see their gallery! Thank you Joey and Kim for trusting me to capture your day. It was amazing and I am so honored to be “stuck” with you guys!

P.S. Joey wins 1st place for the “seeing his bride walk down the isle” emotions. Best. Ever.

Wooded Maternity Session | Galena Creek Park | Reno - Lake Tahoe Maternity Photographer

Oh Jenna. How gorgeous you are!

Jenna was such a trooper during the cold months! Our first attempt at her outdoor maternity session was in the middle of a blizzard. While it would have been rad, it was cold and windy. The following week though? Was all sunshine and chill - so a little more manageable.

I met Jenna when I did a maternity boudoir model call. Then I received my gorgeous Mr. Pretty Skirt and I needed to shoot it, and she was the perfect model for it! So glad she was tolerant of my shenanigans and ideas! Jenna rocked her session and Galena Creek Park was the perfect setting for this session! The trees, light, dress and gorgeous mama make this entire maternity session perfect!

Thank you Jenna for trusting me and playing along with my visions! You rocked it mama!

Wooded Maternity Session | Galena Creek Park | Reno - Lake Tahoe Maternity Photographer

When someone tells me they've never actually had professional photos taken with their fiancé, I have a minor freakout internally - especially when it's a special time like being pregnant with your first child!

Brandon was at a Super Bowl party I was at. We got to talking and he tells me about expecting his first child (a baby girl) in just three short weeks. Naturally, I ask about photos, only to find out they haven't taken any.

Cue panic.

Thank goodness I have a rad boss who told me to take Monday afternoon off so I could go do Brandon and Stephanie's maternity photos. So in matter of 24 hours we had this maternity session planned. Grabbed maternity dresses from the studio, and decided Galena Creek Park was the perfect setting.

It couldn't have been more perfect. The yellow dress. The light. The couple. Lets not mention that perfect baby bump! Brandon and Stephanie were an absolute dream to photograph, and I am so happy I was able to squeeze them in and give them these incredible images for a very special time in their lives!

Now I can't wait to get my hands on their little princess!
