Winter Senior Portraits

Winter Senior Portraits | Sugar Pine Point | Madelyn

Madelyn has grown up as a competitive tennis player, so it was important for her and her family to incorporate that aspect of her life into her Tahoe winter senior portraits.  Hysterically, although it hadn’t snowed for weeks before her session, when the day came it was freezing cold and a dusting of snow had fallen.  We had planned on doing the session at Sugar Pine Point State Park, because it has such a great mix of forest, pier, and lake options, plus, the added bonus of actually offering a tennis court.  Little did we know when we planned our day that Madelyn would be playing tennis in the snow!  It was a fun and comical way to end our day and I think her smile really came out and shone genuinely when she was on the court!

Gardnerville Senior Portraits

Gardnerville Senior Portraits | Hope Valley, CA | Emily

Emily is a bright, vivacious girl that happens to absolutely love my dog, so I’m quite partial to her.  Side note: her mom owns Professional Image Cleaning and if you’re in the market for a house-cleaner, I highly recommend them and use them myself!  We took Emily’s photos in the fall and we were really hoping for some epic golden fall California sunshine for her Gardnerville senior portraits and I must say that I think we succeeded with flying colors!

Senior portraits are not only fun to take but useful for all sorts of reasons: graduation announcements, keepsakes, gifts for family members and friends, and more!  Lauren Lindley offers senior portrait package specials and if you want, you can even combine your senior portrait session with a family photography session to make sure that you and your entire family have memories for years to come!

THIS.

Senior Portraits at Lake Tahoe

Candice is a rad senior from the Class of 2016 from a small town in Arkansas.  “I didn’t want photos on train tracks,” she told me.  I agree, girl, I agree.

Clearly, senior portraits at Lake Tahoe is the best place in the US to have your senior photo session!  Two seniors in one week agree!

Here’s another sneak peek from Candice’s awesome Zephyr Cove Resort photos session.  There’s more to come from this rad young lady!

Tahoe Senior Photos | Allison

Holy magical golden light, Batman!

I am so over the moon for this killer engagement session with this Texas senior!  I photograph a ton of seniors who are visiting Lake Tahoe on their summer vacations and are looking for something “different” than their friends’ photos from their homes.  Allison was no exception and I had such a blast with her and her gorgeous family.  They were full of smiles and Southern charm and our two hour session at Kahle Community Center and Zephyr Cove Resort for her Tahoe senior photos was a blast!  The light was SO perfect the entire night.  More to come from this gorgeous Texas gal!

Tracy Senior Photography | Jason

This family.  I adore them so much.

Eddie and Lori were were one of my first Tahoe wedding clients.  They were wed in a beautiful and intimate Tahoe beach ceremony at theTahoe Beach Retreat.  To this day, they remain some of my most vibrant and vocal supporters.  I would do anything for them, and anything includes visiting their beautiful family in the Bay Area for some Tracy senior photography for their son Jason.

Jason is a talented, smart kid who intends to continue his pursuits of water polo in college.  He really wanted to showcase his love of the sport in his session and as I am a former competitive swimmer myself, I was excited for the session!  We spend the morning wandering around Tracy, CA with Jason’s guitar at various locations that Lori had previously scouted for me.  I must say: Lori was an exceptional location scout!  It was high noon almost when we shot and I didn’t want to leave Eddie without a job so we employed his services as umbrella man.  He also did an exceptionally great job assisting!

Exceptional umbrella holding by Eddie!

I am constantly amazed by the folks who come into my life thanks to my job.  One of the best things about it is the lifelong relationships I forge with clients who I come to consider friends.  This family warms my heart in every way and I’m so happy I was able to photograph Jason to celebrate his high school graduation.  Here’s a few of my favorites from our Tracy, CA senior portrait session.

Tracy Senior Portrait

Tracy Senior Photographer | Jason | Sneak Peek

The son of two good friends and prior wedding clients is graduating from high school this year.  Originally, they had intended to come visit me in Tahoe so I could photograph Jason’s senior portrait session, but as it happens, complicated athletic schedules got in the way.  I was nonplussed, however, and promised Lori that I was sure that I could find a weekend to come to them instead.  The stars aligned perfectly and this past weekend I was able to make a stop and be Jason’s Tracy senior photographer!  Here’s a sneak peek from our session around his hometown.

Tahoe Senior Photographer | Emerald Bay | Tiffany

Tiffany is one rad kid.  She is a smart, funny high school senior with a bright future ahead of her.  She’s expecting to hear soon on early admission from Johns Hopkins University where she intends to major in neuroscience.   Tiffany wanted an outdoor natural photo session for her Tahoe Senior Portrait and specifically something very different than her friends in Southern California.  Her family drove all the way from Magic Mountain, CA for her portrait session!

After discussing our options, Tiffany and I decided that the Emerald Bay and the Cascade Falls trail would be perfect for her session.

Tahoe Senior Portrait Photographer | Meagan

Meagan is a bright bubbly young woman with an awesome future ahead of her.  Headed to UCLA in the fall, she told me that she’s looking forward to Southern CA life, access to the beach year round and studying statistics.  I’m super thrilled for her and her big plans.  She was a blast to hang out with and I’m looking forward to setting up a photo booth and doing event photography for her graduation party in a few weeks at Edgewood.  I’m also extremely jealous of her super adorable riding boots.
