Elko County Homeschool Portrait Sessions – Back to School

Elko County Home School Student Portraits 2018

Calling all Elko County homeschool students!  It’s portrait time!  I bet many of you are getting settled back into your homeschool routines.  That means it’s time to update school portraits too!  We would LOVE to help you with that!  Contact Lindsay Syme Photography to get on the schedule.  We will be holding two session days just for homeschool students!  Choose either September 18th or 19th.  We have a few slots still available.  CONTACT US for more details!

Elko County Home School Student Portraits 2018

Tips to get ready for school portraits:

  • We always encourage brighter colors.  Light colors have a tendency to wash out skin tones.  However, the most important thing is that your child is his/herself.
  • Avoid shirts with logos and slogans so the main focus will be on your child and not the message of their shirt.
  • Schedule a time that works best for your younger children.
  • Glasses are okay!  Remember, you want your child to be his/herself.  We will adjust lighting to avoid glare.
  • Know which package you would like to purchase ahead of time.  Please contact us for details.
  • We do have a large candy jar in the studio.  We will check with you before offering any special treats!

Growing Up Fast – Walthers Brothers Family Portrait

Growing Up Fast - Spring Creek Family Photography - Walthers Brothers

I will never get over the fact that time flies right on by!  I began photographing the Walthers boys when they were small.  Now, the oldest is preparing to graduate high school!  That blows my mind!  They have grown so much!  I wanted to share their recent portrait.  We were lucky enough to take an extended family portrait for the entire family so we took the opportunity to update the boys’ portrait as well.  Watching these kiddos grow up over the years has been such a joy!  A lot happens in seven years!

They Grow So Fast - Spring Creek Family Photography - Walthers Brothers


One of the things I admire about their mom is her appreciation for photography.  She always made time to update their portraits over the years.  That can be hard to do with a house full of busy boys!  She definitely made it happen.  I know she will always treasure the photographs.  I am certain she will remember the most recent as her oldest son prepares to graduate and begin a new chapter in his life.


Stay tuned for a blog post on the portraits from the extended family session.  In the meantime, look back on some other family portraits from the Walthers family HERE.


It’s never too late to update your professional family portrait.  Call Lindsay Syme Photography to schedule your appointment HERE.

Elko City Park Photo Session – Elko Family Photography

Elko City Park Photo Session

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is meeting people from all over the world.  I was so lucky to be able to photograph these beautiful children in an Elko City Park photo session!  Aren’t they gorgeous?    Everything about them was simply lovely!  They were here visiting family for the summer.  The children speak mostly Arabic so I was extremely grateful to have the help of their mom and aunt.  These two ladies were awesome troopers!  Such a nice family!  I wanted to share a few of the session images.  We hit the morning lighting just perfectly that day!  I was absolutely digging the golden tones!

Look at their adorable outfits!  Those little suspenders!

This is a custom wall portrait we designed for the family.  They wanted something that included all of their favorite images on one art piece.  The beauty about custom photography is being able to work with my clients closely to ensure they get exactly what they want when it comes to displaying their portraits.  I am so glad to have visual software to help my clients see what the images will look like on their own walls before making a purchase.

It is such a privilege to be able to photograph Elko families and their special moments over the years!  A couple of years ago I chased this little cutie all over the park to try and take her picture.  This year she pulled out her own posing and even taught me a thing or two!  She is full of energy and an amazing little gal!  It will be fun to see her grow over the years!
