Tahoe Maternity Portraits

Tahoe Maternity Photos | Chelsea + Ben

Maternity sessions are a great way to remind yourself of how beautiful you are, even when you may not feel at your best!  Better yet, when we take your Tahoe maternity photos in that golden CA evening light, you’re going to flat out glow and this awesome session with Chelsea and Ben is a prime example of that!  Photos are memories and one day, your maternity portraits are going to help you recall all the tumultuous feelings, cravings, hopes and dreams that you had while pregnant.  Valhalla Estate remains one of my most favorite places to photograph at in Lake Tahoe: the opportunities and variety of backdrops are seemingly endless in an easy walk.  In a few mere months, this happy couple is going to have a gorgeous little girl join their family and they’ll have some awesome memories from their trip to Lake Tahoe to remember the journey by!

Tahoe Maternity Photographer | The Stawickis

The Stawickis recently had twice the fun arrive in their house.  Yes!  Twins!  In a crazy turn of events, the young little future football players were born the week after this maternity session, just shy of 10 weeks early.  After spending a long time in the NICU at Renown Medical in Reno, the boys are home with their new parents and I do have some awesome newborn photos to share next week as well.  In the meantime, here’s a few of my favorites from the Stawicki family’s portrait session.  Pam and Brent, thanks so much for hiring me to be your Tahoe maternity photographer!  I’m so glad I had the opportunity to capture your pregnancy!

Tahoe Maternity Portraits | Jodi + Alex

Jodi and Alex just welcomed their newest addition to their family: a gorgeous little girl named Isabella!  Her sneak peek went live on the blog this week as well.  You can view it via this link!  Just before her birth, I had the pleasure of taking their Tahoe maternity portraits at Fallen Leaf Lake.  I was especially excited to take advantage of the gorgeous aspen meadow down the way from the trailhead at Fallen Leaf.  I’ve been dying to utilize it’s awesome golden backlight!  Even better, when we arrived there was a trio of deer feasting in the meadow!

Matt + Sara | Tahoe Pregnancy Portraits

It’s the ultimate form of flattery when my friends insist that I take their portraits and when Matt and Sara, whose wedding was the first wedding I ever shot from start to finish, asked me to take their Tahoe pregnancy portraits, I readily agreed.  I felt exceedingly honored.

We decided to head down to the gorgeous Hope Valley, which is near both of our homes.  Matt and Sara are both very grounded people, with their hearts and souls firmly rooted in the world around them.  They have such a deep spiritual connection with each other and the natural world that it only made sense to me to take them somewhere with huge grand sweeping views.  It’s simply where I thought they belonged.

These are a few of my favorite photos from the day.  I’m so thrilled them.  Sara looks absolutely glowing, just as she should.  It’s pretty awesome when my creative vision comes to fruition from start to finish.

Bright Pregnancy Portraits

Last January, two of my friends asked me to help create their pregnancy announcement photos.  We had such a blast incorporating their love of Tahoe and skiing into the photos.

Flash forward a few months and Jonelle is now very pregnant.  She’s due at the end of July and really wanted portraits taken and I was happy to help.  We ran around Valhalla and Pope Estates and captured some really great moments.

In other news, I’ve got some weddings coming up and I rented a D700 and the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 and I can’t wait to play with them!
