Sugar & Spice: A Mother & Daughter Session | Reno & Sparks Family Photograpy

The relationship between a mom and her daughter is a special one. I love documenting it. I got the opportunity to photograph Cayci with her two gorgeous daughters, Dominique and Emily. The three of them are super close and have an amazing relationship. These are the kinds of relationships we need to have more photos of. If you've got a daughter (or 4), make sure you schedule a session to get that relationship on film. 

It's important and it's forever!

...and how cute are those Uggs??? I die! 

Thanks, Cayci, for the opportunity to photograph this special bond!

Senior Portraits | Reno, Sparks, Tahoe Senior Portraits Photographer

I love, love, love shooting seniors! They're fun to do out-of-the-box style shoots with. This is Mason. He was quite shy when we first met, but by the end of the shoot, he was chatting up a storm. I think he had as much fun as I did. 

Take a look at his shots. If you know a student that is in need of Senior Portraits, I'd love the chance to work with them and create an amazing spread of photos to remember this special time. Don't forget the Senior Pictures Special Pricing we have going on right now!

Reno, Tahoe & Northern Nevada Photography Promotion

So, with my decision to try to build a client base in Reno, I've decided to offer an incentive to potential clients with the hopes that my work will go over and beyond expectation and that they might recommend me to friends. That's the  way I hope to build my business, on referral.

This is the special I'm offering to get my lifestyle photography business off the ground:
If you or anyone you know would like to take advantage of this promotion, I'd be happy to talk with you and provide you with some excellent photos!

Here We Go Again...RENO, NEVADA!

Well, I have decided to go forward with my photography business.

I don't know one. single. person. in Reno or the Northern Nevada area but I am going to do my best to try to find some business and then work by referral from the clients I get here. Hopefully my work will be something that my clients want to tell their friends about.

So, I am making a few marketing pieces to put around town and I'm going to try to ramp up my blog postings with the clients I can find.

I made some new business cards this week.

I love looking through the client files from last year to choose a few photos.

If you know someone in the Reno, Tahoe or Northern Nevada area that needs a photographer, I'd love the chance to talk with them and give them some great photo memories that will last a lifetime.

What to Wear...Family Style | Reno Tahoe Family Photography

I get quite a few clients asking about what they should wear for their family pictures. I thought I'd just put together a few tips here based on what I've seen that does and does not work in photos.

 For family shots, I believe it's best to pick one or two prints and then fill in coordinating solids for the rest of the family. I suggest finding a print that has the "feel" you're looking for and build the rest of the wardrobe around that without being too "matchy-matchy" know what I'm saying? For example, here is my most recent family photo:

Notice how the prints are on Teagan in the chevron/houndstooth dress and Addy in the plaid pants. From here, we have the rest of the family in coordinating solids (some bold like Boston's sweater and some neutral like my jacket and Michael's sweater).

Keep in mind that accessories can really make a photo (not to mention slim a person down). Belts, scarves, hats, bows, headbands and great jewelry can really make every outfit unique and yet still cohesive. I suggest putting your pieces all together and stepping back. If they look like you'd be able to wear them as one, you're probably on the right track!

 Some things to think about:

 1. Avoid dressing for more than one season. Since fall is a great time for family photos, avoid the temptation to dress yourself in a cozy sweater and let the teenager wear short sleeves and flip flops (if that's a battle you're willing to take on...ha). Also, don't let your husband throw on his favorite white undershirt and call it an outfit. Plain white is tough to pull off in photos unless you're going for a very specific, clean cut, oxford-type look. Force your man into your favorite button-down or sweater.

 2. Check your footwear. In family photos, well in all photos really, shoes are important. Unless the cozy, no-shoes feeling is what you're going for, I suggest black or brown shoes. We're looking for shoes that blend. This is really not the time to sport those new kelly green crocs or bright orange flip flops.  Of course, if you've got yourself a really great pair pink heels that make your outfit, by all means, rock 'em.

 3. Make sure the colors are going to be something that will fit in your home so you can get some great enlargements (the best home decor is a family photo (or 6), I think).

 4. LAYERS! One way to make your photos look even better is by adding a lot of layering.  You can add more color into your outfit choices by adding layers without having to add more prints. Layers are slimming! Just do it.

Bun in the Oven | Reno, Tahoe & Northern Nevada Maternity Photography

Meet Kelly.

She has 2 and a half year old twins and decided that a third was just what was needed to "complete" the family. Before the baby (who's sex remained unknown until d-day) was born, she signed on for the Freshly Baked Photo Package with 5ive Photo. This package comes complete with a maternity session, birth session, a newborn session for after the baby is born and a custom baby announcement.

Here are a few of the shots from the maternity session (which was in two parts because Kelly got a henna tattoo on her belly-how cool is that?!?!). I just love the first two with her daughters. We had fun putting this session together.

Thanks, Kelly!
