Reno Family and Newborn Photographer | The Titlow Family

“Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven.”

~ Henry Ward Beecher

There is something so sweet and so special about documenting a family as they grow! I love that I am able to freeze moments in time and catch small glimpses of the future grown-up’s that the tiny humans in from of my lens will some day be. As I work with each family I have the pleasure of photographing I am astounded at how each child is a small reflection of each of their parents. I delight in catching the little nuances of how “she smiles like her dad” or “he wrinkles his nose like his mom when he giggles”. I particularly love seeing how older siblings are typically just naturally fascinated and drawn to show affection for their younger siblings.

This family and newborn portrait session was such fun! Little miss L was the perfect reflections of her loving and attentive parents who obviously allow her imaginations and spark of childhood joy to blossom in their care! I simply loved how thrilled she was to borrow a twirly white dress from my studio wardrobe and show me just how very well the layers of tulle would fluff and spin when she danced!

Little baby L is their newest addition and already has his sisters love! She was so careful when we placed him in her arms, and her pride as the big sister was unmistakable!

This family and newborn session is the kind of thing that just makes my artists heart sing, it was an absolute joy to create these special images for this darling family!

Ashley’s Snow Queen Themed Senior Session

Hello all, yes, I am still here, believe it or not. Bad at blogging YES, but still here!

Today I have a gorgeous High School Senior girl Ashley in her Snow Queen themed Senior Session.

What a fun session, we really had a blast running around the woods, twirling, and playing with the last bit of snow!

I have to say I really love doing a themed senior session, it’s just so great to work out the wardrobe, hair and makeup and pull together something new and special to this one kid!

Ashley has been my daughters BFF since they were little girls, and I have to tell you, seeing this girl all grown up was definitely bittersweet. Ashley is a talented actress and social media rock-star and I know she is just going to take the world by storm, blizzard even, lol!

Without any further ado, here is the beautiful Ashley!

Adriana & Micheal, Old 1862 Ranch Wedding

HAPPY ONE WEEK ANNIVERSARY to my sweet cousin Adriana and her new husband Michael! I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to share these photos. Adriana is my husbands cousin but she is only 2 years older than our daughter so she and our daughter grew up together. When I met my husband this beautiful bride was just a little thing, and now she is a beautiful young woman of God who I am so proud to call my family. She made such a good choice in Michael for her life long partner, he is a brave, kind, talented and loving man and he adores her, as she does him. I see amazing things in their future, and I know they will be so happy together.

I must say I was only a little bit (REALLY REALLY) stoked that they booked this beautiful private venue for their rustic country wedding. The Old 1862 Ranch only takes a small number (like one or two) weddings a year and they chose to allow these guys to have their special day on this picturesque and historic property.

I can’t wait any longer, please enjoy some of my faves from their wedding!

Hailee & Forrest are Married, Orchard House, Genoa Nevada Wedding

Hey everyone, what a busy and amazing couple of weeks we’ve had over here! Two weddings in the last two weeks made for a busy schedule but what made this past couple of weeks so amazing was the people who I had the honor of working with! Hailee and Forrest had an almost storybook perfect wedding day down at the Orchard House in Genoa Nevada! If you have never been to the darling historic town of Genoa I highly recommend that you take a weekend day and make a day of it. The town is adorable, and filled with history and some of the oldest buildings in the state. This particular venue was established in 1875 and is still in the same family as the original owners, how cool is that. I had a lovely conversation with the owner who told me all kinds of interesting facts about the home he considers it an honor to be the steward of.

These two kids are so great together. I have known Hailee since she was a young girl, I want to say she was maybe in 6th grade or so when I met her mom and began working with her in ministry. I had the pleasure of watching Hailee grow into the beautiful and Christ-like young woman she is today and I am so excited to watch as she as Forrest grow together in love and build a life and a family together.

It’s a very special thing when I am asked to photograph the wedding of someone I care about, it makes my job so much fun and so very important to me. I love every couple I work with, of course, but there is something unique and special when I get to see someone I have watched grow up become a loving and God-honoring spouse!

Congrats so much you two, you deserve all the happiness, love and joy that God has to give in your lives together!
