I recently met up with the Martins in Carnelian Bay for a family portrait photography session with their newest addition, 3 month old Charlie. We started out indoors at the condo they were staying at so we could get some photographs with their dogs too, and then we headed over to the Gar Woods pier. There was a ton of snow on the beach, and Darrell was a trooper stomping down a pathway, carrying a heavy wooden sleigh, and of course, a Boppy! All the essentials for a baby shoot, right? I photographed Jennifer and Darrell’s wedding 4 years ago at Plumpjack Squaw Valley Inn. I love to stay connected with couples after their wedding. Seeing their families grow, and being able to photograph their children is such a rewarding part of this job I have as a photographer. I didn’t have a blog back when I photographed their wedding, and I was still shooting film at that time too! So I thought I’d add a few wedding photos to this post as well. It was a March wedding, with snow still visible in the mountains surrounding Squaw Valley. I loved her bouquet, created by Bellissima Floral Creations, with rich purples, a few deep blues as accents, and wispy peacock feathers thrown in for texture. In fact, looking through my archives of their wedding images, I have so many great details shots, I think I will have to do another blog post one of these days of just the details!
