Sigh - you guys. This session was an actual real life dream. Lora is a photographer from Reno and actually one of my real life favorite humans. Her and Alex came up to Truckee for a sunset adventure session on Donner Summit - and we had a blast trekking around, avoiding mosquitoes, and soaking in every ray of the glorious Sierra sunset. What a life we live, huh? 

All in all we hiked about 4 miles, climbed a few hundred feet in elevation, and felt on top of the world. This is what an adventure session with me really looks like. 

I loved seeing Lora + Alex's adventurous spirits, obvious love, and clear desire to find new things together. They were so fun, down to earth, and easy to work with! My favorite part though, was sharing this location with them, and only them. It's so special to take places that are dear to me, and turn them into a space for couples to share their story with me. 


Erin - Creative Headshot Photographer | Lake Tahoe | Truckee |

I got to meet up with Erin, of Erin Nicole Photography a week ago and we shot some images of each other! It was so fun to photograph someone who understood my silly posing prompts, and was just so darn cute!

Creatives - I want to do more of these! If you're in the NorCal/Reno area I would LOVE to work with you to create genuine, authentic and honest portraits of you for your business! 

Melissa + Jason - West Shore Lake Tahoe Lifestyle Anniversary Photographer

Melissa and Jason are two of those people who you just cannot help but adore - and I mean it. They are so in love - so honest and genuine. I am so thankful to have them as clients, as I've shot their engagement, wedding, their daughter's senior photos, and now their Anniversary session - plus, we have head shots scheduled next week. Cannot wait!!

We spent the morning at Ehrman Mansion on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe and they were my muse - I cannot get over some of these images!

Andrew + Sarah - Breckenridge, Colorado Photographer

So, secret time: Andrew and Sarah were not publicly official when I took these images - but they were truly adorable, and clearly crazy about each other. We spent some time inside of an awesome little bar, a distillery tasting room (barn, actually!) and they are just the bees knees - and proof that you don't have to be married or engaged to get photos of your love story. 

Mike + Lisa - Reno/Tahoe Engagement Lifestyle Photographer

I was so excited when I first met with Lisa to discuss their wedding - her and Mike are so down to earth, and clearly perfect for each other. We set up a small little engagement session and it was the coldest start to a session that I have literally ever had - but these images were worth every ounce of fear that I had frostbite on my fingers, ha! 

I can't wait for their wedding in March - it's going to be at a pub and I'm SO excited!
