I had one day in Tahoe last month to photograph the beautiful connection of an extended family enjoying a summer day together on the lake. One of their favorite activities together when they are all together at the lake is to head out on Grandpa’s boat. We started our day with a documentary session to create a visual memoir for the grandchildren of one of their favorite ways of spending time with their grandparents. We took off from the marina near Incline Village, NV and enjoyed a full tour of the Lake Tahoe for the morning. The scenery was beautiful with snow capped mountains in the distance, but the best part of our family documentary vacation session was just capturing the relaxed energy of grandparents in their happy place with their children and grandkids.
That evening we shot a second session together, this time a lifestyle family session at Sand Harbor in Incline Village Lake Tahoe. We climbed over the boulders to watch the sunset over the Lake, the kids played in the water and sand, exploring the park together. Sand Harbor is a truly iconic location for family pictures if you are on vacation in Tahoe. The large, rounded rocks that face the western sky make for the perfect backdrop. The sunset was the perfect end to an amazing day of family photography in Tahoe.
If your family is headed on vacation and you’d love your family story captured get in touch! I love to travel for family sessions and capturing light and connection in new places.
