Story of Boys {Lake Tahoe}



Not too long ago, I had the chance to shoot for several days in Lake Tahoe.  Each family was willing to let me see a true slice of their life and I am so so thankful.  These sessions were so inspiring for me.  New, beautiful, landscapes. Time around fresh water. Jumping off rocks and docks.  Time with new friends who feel like old friends.  Families being connected. What emerged from my time on the lake was a new vision for family photography that involves more storytelling.  More authenticity.  More vulnerability.  These shots of the boys playing in Donner Lake are just so fun.  They make me feel a place deep in my heart that reminds me of the best moments of childhood.  And that is what I want my job to be all about.  Documenting the fleeting moments of childhood.
