Although our spring temps are lingering in the realm of brisk this week, summer is on the horizon and that means summer vacationers will fill our beaches, campgrounds, rental houses and bike paths. The welcome change in temperatures will surely pave the way for more outdoor adventures. I’m personally ready to get on my bike! Summer vacation is also the perfect time to take your Tahoe family portraits.
The Crandall family hailed from Texas so I felt right at home with this large loving laughing crew. We did some large and small group shots, as we always do, but then the family trusted me enough to let their kids play and enjoy themselves in some outdoor exploration, which made for great candid photo opportunities, which I love. Valhalla Estate is always a fantastic choice for your South Lake Tahoe Family portraits session because it offers such a wonderful mix of forest, meadow, lawn, pier and beach.

This light. This family. This location.
I’m so excited about this gorgeous family portrait session at Fallen Leaf Lake. Hailing from all over the US: Vegas, Salt Lake and Florida, this family wanted something uniquely foresty and rustic for their family portraits at Lake Tahoe and I knew just the spot. More to come from this totes adorbs fam.
Often, a family vacation is the best time to hire a professional photographer to document your family. Not only does it ensure that you come away with a great keepsake of your experience, but frequently family vacations are the only time that all of the family members are in one place at the same time and it makes sure that you will have quality photos to go with lasting memories of a wonderful trip with loved ones. Loved ones, more often than not, frequently include our animals. I know that my dog is like my child (and the only child I plan on having for that matter). I regret not having someone take photos of me with my previous cattle dog, Sierra, before she passed away last year.
When the Giorvas family approached me about taking family portraits with their newest family member, Zoe, I readily agreed! I was happy to be their Lake Tahoe family portrait photographer and we picked Valhalla as the perfect location. We had a great mix of shade from some oncoming clouds and thanks to the help of my friend Jenay from Lake Tahoe Yoga, an umbrella for excellent diffused light when those clouds weren’t coming to our beck and call.
With a few more Tahoe portrait sessions with dogs on the books this summer, it looks like my summer is going to be full of dogs and that’s something I’m frankly extremely excited about.
