Burnout in photography is real.  It's hard to create boundaries when your office is in your living room.

When clients request those staple “candids,” it’s more than just showing up and randomly catching the perfect frame–there’s a lot that goes into the perfect “candid”: lighting, posing, and more.  It's my job to make you look effortless and at ease and that takes just a little bit of work.

Summer isn’t the only beautiful, busy season in Lake Tahoe. It’s a peak destination for avid winter sports athletes and for those who just come for the views.

There’s something special about winter weddings in Tahoe, and every year, I look forward to the new trends and spins that winter couples add to their day.
