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!

Tahoe Maternity Portrait | Jodi + Alex | Sneak Peek

Jodi, Alex and I intended to do their portraits a week ago and we were rained, or rather, snowed out.  I’m so happy we waited until this past Sunday because the Fallen Leaf Lake Meadow was awash in golden sunshine, warm tones and filled with deer when we arrived for their Tahoe maternity portrait.

Here’s a quick sneak peek from their session to hold you over until the rest of the photos are ready!

Maternity Photos | The Kelly’s and the Tahoe Trips

Meghan is one of the smartest, funniest, bravest people I know.  Basically, she’s a total badass.  Her life is about to get super exciting because she and her husband Pat are going to have triplets.  She wanted to commemorate her one and only pregnancy with some maternity photos and I was more than willing to comply.  I am, after all, the official Tahoe Trips photog.

MK and PK and Scoutie are all ready for their new additions to the family.  The nursery is painted, there are three of everything, and a minivan.  If you would like to know more about their future adventures in the mountains, you can follow the adventures of the Tahoe Triplets on Instagram or Meghan on both Twitter and Instagram.

In the meantime, I’ve started a fundraiser for the Kelly family to help ease the burden of their first year.  We are trying to raise enough money to pay for a housecleaner every week for a year.  The cost for house cleaning for one year is $3,600 and the project is currently 35% funded and I appreciate everyone who has made a donation so far.  If you would like to donate to the cause, you may do so via this link.

Tahoe Maternity Portraits | Jess + Dave

Jess and Dave are pretty rad.  They are funny, vivacious folks that love to laugh, get silly and play with their pups.  They wanted to commemorate their son to be with some family photos and Tahoe maternity portraits.  A mutual friend sent them my way and we were collectively all shocked that our paths in Tahoe had yet to cross.  I mean, come on, I thought I knew everyone?  Their four legged friends are an important part of their growing family so we decided that their favorite paw friendly beach was the place to go for their portrait session.

Tahoe Maternity Portrait | Jess + Dave Sneak Peek

Jess and Dave were introduced to me by a mutual friend and I’m so thankful we’ve been connected!  The pair of them have fun, vibrant, and goofy personalities that you are immediately drawn to.  I had such a great time shooting with them at their favorite dog friendly beach, Zephyr Cove.  Other relevant information pertinent to this post: you have no earthly idea how difficult it was to convince their dogs to take this photo.

More to come soon from this rad couple and their Tahoe maternity portrait session soon!

Tahoe Maternity Photographer |Tahoe Triplets Sneak Peek

Tahoe is about to get bigger, better and more badass with the birth of triplets.  My friends Meghan and Pat are having three boys in the very near future and while we were all scared at first, the looming date has everyone getting their defense in the game, prepared and trained.  Cribs are built, diapers are ordered, there is some semblance of organization to the hundreds of items of clothing people have gifted them in their living room.  In the meantime, we decided that it was long overdue for us to head out for pregnancy photos.  I’m proud to be Meghan’s “personal ski photographer.”  Now I can add Meghan’s Tahoe maternity photographer and soon, their personal family photographer to the list.

 Here’s a sneak peek of our late afternoon Tahoe maternity session.  In the meantime, you can follow the adventures of the Tahoe Triplets on Instagram or Meghan on both Twitter and Instagram.

Tahoe Family Portrait

Tahoe Family Portrait Photographer | The Hatch Family

The Hatches are not only wonderful repeat clients of mine, but also good friends.  Jenny, who by the time this posts will probably have given birth to her 2nd child, had originally wanted to get a group of pregnant girlfriends together and have a group maternity photo session.  When plans failed, she turned our one hour Tahoe portrait session into a part maternity, part family portrait session.  Any time I get to spend with the Hatches is a good time in my book so I was more than game.  Here are a few of my favorites from our evening together.
