I have moved….business on hold for now.

Hi All- So my family and I recently moved from Reno to Bishop, CA. I have not been doing business photography for the last year since my daughter was born, and sadly my business will continue to be on hold this year while I adjust to a new home and continue my work as a wildlife biologist and a mom! There are just not enough hours in the day….If you are interested in a photo shoot- I may be doing repeat clients and referrals- please drop me a line.

Fall shoots: Sneak Peaks

  Hi All- I have had some wonderful fall photo-shoots in the last few weeks… I am desperately behind on blogging, so I will just post a few quick shots here and work on full posts later when I have down time! Thanks so much to wonderful returning and new clients- It was great to spend time with all of you in our short, beautiful Reno fall.



My new addition and Holiday Mini-Sessions!

Hi Internet….

So after a long absence I am getting back on the blog.

On August 7 my beautiful baby girl was born: Ayla Finn Nelson, 8 lbs. 3 oz. My husband and I are so in love with our sweet little milk monster!

It has been such an adventure so far… and we cannot believe how fast the last 2 months have been!

So last week I had to get back to my full-time job… and I realized it was time to get back to photography too!

I have a few sessions scheduled for October, and more requests coming in. Since I have a new baby and a full-time job to do, this year my time will be even more limited for sessions and editing!

So I am going to try something different- mini-sessions. Many of you want just a few nice photos for holiday cards and presents.

I will be offering ~30 minute sessions with ~5 jpg files to use as you

like for ~$75 (depending on location, client needs, and # of family members).

Additional files may be available for viewing and purchase online.

If you are interested, please contact me through this blog and we will set up a time.

Late October is ideal to capture fall colors and beautiful light!

I will be setting aside a couple weekend days for these mini-sessions so stay tuned for those. One location will be Rancho San Rafael Park- it is just beautiful out there now with fall colors, vibrant green grass, and still a few blooming flowers!


Newborn Photography: Dominic

Here is a precious newborn I photographed in May… Dominic was a dream to photograph and slept through most of our session…

Love these expressions as he wakes up!

Reno Family Photography

I am months behind on blog posts- I am so sorry! Here is a loving family session from the spring- the Copeland’s at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno…. These boys were full of energy and not too interested in sitting still for a nice family portrait….












 Thanks! More spring posts to come!
