Family portrait season traditionally begins in late summer in the Lake Tahoe and Carson Valley areas, and continues into the beginning of December. The late summer crowd is usually of the family reunion variety, and I get to meet people from all over the country as they flock to this area to reunite and get their family portraits done. The November and December crowd are usually locals, who come back year after year to get an updated portrait, which they then use for their holiday cards, in addition to wall portraits and smaller prints. I love doing family portraits! It does my heart good to meet all these families that are enjoying their time together. Here are a few of my favorites from some recent sessions.
