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.

Kristin and Alan are my kind of people: fun and quick to laugh with a splash of goofiness. Both members of this rad couple work in education and work for a summer camp every year. Yes! Camp Life! Even more awesome: they want their wedding at Sugar Bowl Resort to have elements of summer camp style. Can you imagine anything more perfect for me? I can’t! I feel pretty lucky to have been connected with these two. Kristin and Alan, thanks for braving the cold temps and traffic to come to Tahoe for your engagement session. I can’t wait for your wedding!!
More to come from this awesome couple and their Tahoe winter engagement session at Sand Harbor State Park.
This past fall, Tahoe was lucky enough to be the location for a confluence of artists and authors for the first WordWave Festival at Tahoe’s historic Valhalla Grand Hall. Writers, musicians, and performers from around the country shared their talent and spoke at a variety of panels and classes over the three day event. There were readings, workshops, plays, open mics, guided hikes, oral storytelling, and a Steampunk themed gala and fundraiser one evening. One of the festival organizers is a huge fan of my photobooth and she asked if I would be willing to donate the booth to the fundraising gala and of course I agreed! Since it was a costume party, I decided that a seamless white backdrop would show off everyone’s amazing costumes best and the booth was a huge hit. Here’s a few of my favorites from the evening, but you can see the entire gallery via this link.
Lauren Lindley Photography’s Lake Tahoe Photo Booth Rental is a fantastic and fun addition to all kinds of events including: weddings, corporate events, company parties, trade shows, birthday or engagement parties, fundraising events, festivals and more. Photo booth is supremely social: even the most camera shy folks will have props in their hand by the end of the evening. Small booths only hold a handful of your guests but the Lauren Lindley Photo Booth can fit everyone in! More people, more props, more fun! It’s also an affordable addition to your extravaganza that allows your guests to relive the party later thanks to our customized theme back drops, props and fun attendants!

Hailing from Boston, Elizabeth and Shamus are recent transplants to Northern CA. Although they currently call Sacramento home, they are hoping to get relocated to the Bay Area and love the access to Tahoe that their new home provides. When they first got in touch with me, Elizabeth indicated that she would love to have some fall colors and mountains in her photos. I’m pretty sure I delivered both for their Lake Tahoe engagement session. We started at Blue Angel Cafe for happy hour and then kicked off the session at Lake Tahoe Community College of all places, which has a beautiful community garden featuring great afternoon light and beautiful fall colors. Quick stops at Taylor Creek visitor center and Valhalla Estate rounded out their session. Here’s a few sneak peeks from their afternoon with me and I’ll eventually share more from this rich golden fall portrait session!
