Emerald Cove Couples Session- Lake Tahoe- Alison and Dom
Being based in Florida, you can say that I don't encounter much of a change in elevation in my usual day to day activities. It is pretty darn flat here. And although I LOVE Florida, there is something about the West Coast that calls to my soul. I find myself dreaming about the golden hour (more on that later) and of the carefree lifestyle. I'm always in search of life's next great adventure, so when the opportunity to shoot a session in my beloved Lake Tahoe, I was thrilled! Little did I know that this adventure would make me break out in a cold sweat and find myself clutching my steering wheel for dear life. I guess you could say I have a tiny fear of heights (which I didn't know existed until this sesh- haha)!
That said, as the little flakes of snow hit Alison's eyelashes and dusted the shoulders of Dom's jacket, I felt myself relax into God's country. Things I love about Lake Tahoe? Oh, let me count the ways! Into the vast expanse of open sky, massive trees and endless lake view, my heart soared. The fresh air hit my lungs and I felt a love for this earth expand in my chest and the gratitude for this life burst through me.
As we hiked the rocky cliffs to find the perfect photo spot (which is pretty much the entire Lake Tahoe area), I was able to observe this sweet couple interact. Watching Alison slip her hand into Dom's and the powerful, warm embrace he held her in, you could see that Alison and Dom share something special. Plus, they're total troopers for trekking through the cold weather and snow flurries. But it is so THEM to do it! I had a blast and absolutely left a piece of myself behind. I can't wait to get back!
