About the Shoot

When creatives come together, and everything flows smoothly that is my favorite! Reno has a strong community over competition mentality and I love that about this community. This shoot was perfect for the holiday season and we even got to play with Pumpkin, the baby goat. (Thanks for Mollie for bringing her)


When we first started talking about the shoot, we knew we wanted to have it be at a Christmas tree lot, but we also wanted it to be unique and different than what was currently popping up around Instagram. We went with a classic look incorporating a plaid blanket, holiday signs and fabric string garlands. Of course it wouldn’t be a classic look if we didn’t have the Flannel shirt from Tahoe Nevada Love. Side note: If you ever need unique gifts that are Tahoe Inspired, please shop there. They are located at the Basement in Reno and have the nicest owners!

Putting it all Together

The Day of the shoot ended up being perfect! The weather was great, the tree lot was great and everyone loved Pumpkin. The photo’s turned out amazing and the set-up was perfect! Amanda and Andrew were a great couple to work with and Heather is always amazing and bringing the shoot to life with her photos. I love working with her because our creative juices flow effortlessly. I also love working with Mollie from Rebel Pioneer because she just gets me and our creative juices are endless! If you’re in the industry, find your tribe of people to laugh with, struggle with, and support you in anything. It makes the business so much easier to get through.
