I have a bunch of techniques that I use to get people to loosen up a bit and smile, but during this shoot Jeff, my husband, who was assisting me on this Tahoe shoot, utilized one that had honestly never crossed my mind before. Fortunately the camera was facing the direction of the clients or my white balance would have been really off….see if you can tell which image it is! I only instructed him to be witty and charming- I swear! We had a great family weekend with the Little’s getting away to Squaw- hiking, eating, tubbing and the like. Bob grew up in Squaw Valley and Kim thought he would enjoy their family shoot around his childhood digs. Snow peaked mountains, lovely golden light and some old friends whom we had a great time with. Thanks you guys! So great to get away with you all!
