Redding Family Photographer

Reno Fall Family Session | Rancho San Rafael Park | Reno Family Photographer

I love this family!

I met Jenna back in February when she answered a model call for a maternity boudoir shoot. It was friendship at first sight - lol. She’s a blast to be around!

I have had so much fun capturing this family this year, and I still have one more with them! Jenna is a #photoaddict - haha. Rancho San Rafael was on fire with the fall colors, and Jenna’s choice of yellow and navy blue was perfect for the setting! Littlest man was not entertained by my shenanigans. The only smile he gave was when brother was being silly. Still adore his little face though!

Thank you Jenna and Ryan for letting me capture your family this year! I can’t wait for 2019 with you guys!

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!

Boho Style Maternity Session | Red Bluff, CA | Reno - Lake Tahoe Maternity Photographer

Oh hot damn!

Everything about this session was fire - fire charred field, burnt yellow dress, blazing sun, smoke, and a gorgeous mama! Chelsee is a family and newborn photographer based in Redding, CA. When another photographer approached me about shooting this dress and we got Chelsee on board - I knew it was going to rock!

We were supposed to shoot this a couple weekends ago, but the devastating Carr Fire that is currently ripping through Northern California put a delay on our shoot. It was heartbreaking to see the devastation it has caused. This burned field in Red Bluff, CA was caused by a fire a couple months ago. It was close to town and some folks did loose some property. 

I always try to see the beauty in a location. It doesn't always have to be green to be pretty. The contrast of the colors on the charred backdrop, along with the golden morning sun - it was absolutely perfect for this shoot.

I like to call it "New Life Amongst the Devastation".

Thank you Chelsee for coming out and braving the lenses of a group of photographers. You brought my vision alive and it was pure perfection! Little Tuck man was so adorable and has some seriously awesome dance moves!

Please keep everyone affected by these crazy fires in your prayers. So many folks have lost everything. I cannot even begin to imagine what they are going through.

Northern California Maternity Session | Whiskeytown Lake | Reno - Lake Tahoe Photographer

I love getting to take a weekend away for out of town clients! Especially when it comes to baby bumps and squishy toddler cheeks! I've known Amelia for over a decade, and seriously love seeing her as a mom! I am super excited that she is also going to be a fellow #boymom! Lets not forget about Mr. L's seriously squishy cheeks! They're to die for and so freaking adorable!

We ventured out to one of our favorite summer hangouts - Whiskeytown Lake! The mosquitos were a bit much - totally forgot about those little bastards (I don't miss them that's for sure)! We hung out on the beach for a little bit as we waited for the sun to go down a little bit, and I was able to sneak a couple adorable photos of dad and Mr. L playing.

Thank you Amelia and Byron for letting me capture your growing family! I cannot wait to see little man's face, and I hope his cheeks are just as squishy as big brother's!

Spring Maternity Session | Galena Creek Park | Reno - Lake Tahoe Maternity Session

I love love love when my wedding couples come back to me to capture their growing families!! I shot Jesse and Tina's wedding in April 2017 and had a BLAST! They are such a fun a couple to be around and I am always laughing.

Big brother V was not excited about our family/maternity session, but he still rocked it - just like he's going to rock being a big brother to his baby sister. Yup, they're having a girl! I know their family and it's ALL boys. This little princess is going to be spoiled and so loved!

I absolutely love this location that we used. The trees and light are to die for, and Tina did an amazing job on their outfits! Her dress and coverup was perfect for the colors, tones, and light! Also, she rocked one of the many maternity dresses I offer for maternity shoots.

Thank you Jesse and Tina for trusting me again to capture your special life moments! I cannot wait to meet your little gal, and *hopefully* capture her through the years! Congratulations you two!

Indian Themed First Birthday Cake Smash | Reno - Lake Tahoe Family Photographer

I love when friends have babies and I get to photograph them! Makes me heart smile so much! I've known Amelia since 2004 and seeing her as a mom now is so amazing! Mr. L is nothing but adorable with cheeks you just want to squeeze!

When Amelia asked me if I could come to come to Redding, CA to do Mr. L's cake smash photos - I couldn't say no! I was there and we rocked it! We went out to a pasture next to their house and had a blast with family photos first and then did a grand finale with the cake smash. Everything turned out amazing, and I couldn't have asked for a sweeter little man to photograph!

Thank you Amelia and Byron for trusting me with your family moments! I had a blast and I cannot wait to photograph your family in the future!

Wooded Family Session | Lake McCumber | Reno - Lake Tahoe Family Photographer

I've known this gal since we were pre-teens! I love that we have become closer over the past two years after loosing slight touch through high school and into our 20's! She's an amazing woman, mom, and soul. Lets not mention the 3 boys thing - I feel for her and understand her life of boy chaos! It's lovely chaotic life though!

I wanted a forest backdrop for this year's family session, so we decided to take a little drive to my old stomping ground when I was kid/teenager, gorgeous Lake McCumber Lake in Shingletown, CA. It was such a beautiful day and the fresh forest air was amazing. I can definitely appreciate the beauty now that I am older - I sure didn't when I was kid (I kinda hated living in BFE).

These three boys are an amazing trio! So much love for their mama and of course, a lot of sas from the baby of the family. He never fails to make me laugh. I cannot wait to photograph this family more over the years and watch these young guys grow into amazing men!

Thank you Vanea for letting me capture your little family! Next time we need to set some time aside for wine and girl talk!
