Welcome to Your Next Family Photography Experience

Hello! I’m Simone, a Reno photographer and Lake Tahoe family photographer, here to capture your family’s unique story in the most beautiful and authentic way possible. As a photographer, mother, melophile, amateur baker, and coffee and whiskey enthusiast, I bring a blend of creativity, warmth, and professionalism to every session. My love for photography began with my parents, and over the years, it has grown into a passion for capturing moments that freeze time, showcasing the beauty of love in all its diverse and enchanting forms.

Every moment in your life has brought you to this point, where you’re thinking about how to preserve these fleeting days. You want to capture memories that you can hold in your hands, pass down through generations, hang on your walls, or include with a heartfelt letter. That’s where I come in. Committed to capturing unique stories, adventures, and everyday moments of love, I feel so lucky to do what I do best every day. When you book a session with me, you’re getting my full commitment. I’m all in—down for the ride, up for a dance, and here for the real stuff.

Booking Your Session

Booking a session with me is simple. Fill out the form below to inquire about your desired date. During the busy wedding season (April-October), sessions are booked on Sundays. Your appointment is confirmed once the contract is signed and payment is received. This ensures that all details are clear and that your date is secured.

Mini-Sessions and Full Sessions

What is a mini-session? A mini-session is a 20-minute photography service starting at $200+ (pricing varies based on the number of people and location) for up to 6 people. If you have a larger group, a full one-hour session is required, as 20 minutes isn’t enough time for bigger groups. One-hour sessions start at $400 and can accommodate up to 12 people.


Where will the session take place? The location will depend on the season and the type of shoot. Most sessions take place in beautiful outdoor settings such as parks in Reno, public areas in San Luis Obispo, and the picturesque Lake Tahoe State Parks. For a more intimate setting, join me at my cozy home studio in Sparks, NV. Some venues, like farms, may require an admission fee, which is not included in the session price. For locations that require permits, such as certain public parks, there will be an additional fee to cover the permit costs.

Session Experience

How does the session work? When we arrive at the chosen location, we’ll start with some pleasantries and pick the perfect spot for photos. Mini sessions are fast-paced and fun, designed to capture natural, candid moments with easy poses that work for everyone. During the session, we’ll work as a team, chasing beautiful light and encouraging plenty of smiles and silliness. Depending on the season and setup, you can expect 5-8 different poses included in your session and gallery. After the session, I’ll edit the images to reflect my photography aesthetic. If you’re not familiar with my work, please check out my short videos and gallery below before booking.

Post-Session Details

How long will it take to get my photos? Your edited images will be sent to your email of choice within 3 weeks after your session date.

How many photos do I receive? Most sessions will result in a gallery of approximately 50-100 images. Mini-session clients will receive a set number of high-resolution digital downloads included in the price. Clients who book a one-hour session will receive 50 high-res digital downloads as part of their package.

What to Wear

We want you to wear whatever makes you feel your best and truly represents who you are. Your comfort and confidence are key to capturing authentic, beautiful photos. Additionally, please consider the colors in the location where we’ll be shooting and aim for a cohesive look among your group. This attention to detail will enhance the overall harmony and appeal of your photos.

Travel Policy

Yes, I am available for travel. If the destination is more than an hour away by car, additional fees may apply. For out-of-state travel requiring a flight, fees will include the cost of the plane ticket, hotel, and car rental.

Let’s create lasting memories together! As your Reno photographer and Lake Tahoe family photographer, I am excited to help you capture the moments that matter most. Book your session today and let’s start this beautiful journey together.
