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!

Tahoe Senior Photos | Candice

Candice hails from Arkansas and didn’t want the same standard senior portraits that everyone in her small town had so while she was on vacation with her family in Lake Tahoe, this past summer, she hired me for her Tahoe senior photos.  Zephyr Cove Resort provided the perfect backdrop for her: with everything that her heart desired, from gorgeous mountain-scapes behind the lake to great forested options.

Tahoe Senior Session | Allison

Golden hour is famed for it’s warmth and possibility, named so for the warm amber hue that happens when the sun is diffused in just the right way, before sunset.  Sometimes, it seems extra magical and things just fall into place exactly the right way.  Allison was on vacation with her family from Fort Worth, TX and really wanted to take advantage of being in a far away locale for her senior portraits so that she didn’t have the same images and locations that all of her friends had.  Her family booked me for two hours so we had a ton of time to romp through both the woods and the beach to give Allison all the varied backdrops she was seeking.  I took a gamble and had my good friend Jenay at Lake Tahoe Yoga show off a new meadow to me that I didn’t know existed.  The hunt paid off and Jenay hit the nail on the head with her location scouting: those woods were magical.  So magical that even she didn’t believe it was the spot we’d been in that afternoon when she was showing it off to me.  I’m so happy that Allison and her rad Texas family connected with me.  I had a blast showing off my home, romping through weeds and splashin in Lake Tahoe with them!  Congrats Allison on your senior year!

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!

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!

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 | Emerald Bay | Tiffany Sneak Peek

Have I told you before that Tahoe senior portrait photography sessions are my favorite?  FAVORITE.  

This amazing session at Eagle Falls and Emerald Bay with Tiffany was no exception and I cannot wait to start editing her photos!  Tiffany convinced her family to drive to Tahoe from Southern CA just for her senior portrait session.  “Everyone takes photos there at the same place,” she said.  She wanted something different.  Something in nature.  Something with our beautiful lake and mountains and forest.

Tiffany, you are a genius.  Thanks for choosing me as your Tahoe portrait photographer.

I can’t wait to share more, but until then, here’s a sneak peek to hold you over.

Tahoe Senior Portrait Photographer Sneak Peek | Homewood | Emily

I am head over heels for this smart funny athletic wonderful Senior from Olympia, WA and all of her images from our session.  I’m honored she chose me as her Tahoe senior portrait photographer while she was on summer vacation in Homewood with her family.

There’s more from this session to come, but in the meantime, I have this stunner of an image to share.

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.
