Lamoille Ranch Family Session

Lamoille Ranch Family Session by Lindsay Syme Photography

I love this family to pieces so I was thrilled to photograph them for a Lamoille ranch family session! They wanted something that captured their family at the base of the Ruby Mountains and that also featured their cattle in the background. We made it happen despite the wind!

John and Susan are the proud owners of J.M. Capriola in Elko, Nevada. Their store is recognized for custom saddle-making and it is also the home of Garcia Bits and Spurs. If you need gear for your ranching needs, J.M. Capriola is the place! It is a family owned and operated business for 90 years! Traditions and the importance of family are at the top of their list! Being able to photograph families that hold their traditions close to their hearts is something I cherish!

I wanted to share some of the images from their session that took place on a ranch in Lamoille, Nevada.

Lamoille Ranch Family Session

One of the things about evening sessions is you run out of sunlight quickly! Sometimes, the most amazing sunset will appear out of nowhere! That’s when the magic happens!

The most important part about having family portraits taken is PRINTING the images! We take pride in creating wall art pieces families can enjoy for years! Check out this wall design that features three family images from this Lamoille ranch family session.

Styled Session of a Sweet Girl and Her Horse in Lamoille, Nevada

Just a Girl and Her Horse

If asked to photograph a styled session of a precious girl and her horse in Lamoille, Nevada, you say, “Sign me up!” Any portrait session taken at the base of the Ruby Mountains is going to be a winner! I can never get enough of the beauty that exists in this amazing high desert we live in!

The Special Relationship Between a Girl and Her Horse

There is something special about the relationship between a girl and her horse. I got to see that first hand when photographing Miss Audrey and her horse, Bug. Never mind that Audrey was feeling under the weather or the fact that it was cold outside! Never mind that the wind blew all day long! This isn’t anything new. It’s always windy here! You really appreciate the moments when the wind settles because a portrait of a girl and her horse is something that will be treasured for years!

I wanted to share a few of my favorite photographs from this styled session…

I love this next image! So sweet! Shout out to J.M. Capriola, the home of Garcia Bits and Spurs! A heart bit inlay, such as the one in the photograph, can be purchased in the Capriola online store at https://capriolas.com/. After all, a Special horse deserves the best gear!

While photographing images against the mountains, the sun began to set behind us. Capturing images at sunset can sometimes be tricky business. You really need to move fast because when it’s gone, it’s gone!

New Chapter, New Beginning – Walthers Family

I’ve been lucky to photograph the Walthers family many times over the last handful of years. It has been so much fun to watch their five boys grow! I met them when their third son, Drew, was just a baby! Now he is and 8th grader! Time sure flies! Fast forward several years and it’s time for a new chapter and a new beginning for this beautiful family!

New Chapter, New Beginning

One thing I have always admired about the Walthers family is the fact that they always make time to update their family portraits! This time was extra special. Hunter, the oldest son, recently graduated high school and was gearing up to head to the Philippines for a two year mission for his church. Two years is quite the length of time. This marks a new chapter and a new beginning for this amazing family. It kind of changes their dynamic a bit. Why not capture this special time with an updated portrait? We did just that!

I wanted to share a few of the images from their recent session…

Canvas Wall Portraits

Canvas wall prints are a great way to display your family portraits. They are timeless and traditional. I love hanging wall portraits in places where they can be enjoyed time and time again! Check out this display…

Walthers Family Color Palette

I love how the Walthers Family chose clothing that fits their personality and style! The colors worked so well together! All the credit goes to Melody. In a house full of boys, she always has it together when it comes to the details! Here is a sample of the colors they chose…

Elko County High School Senior Snow Session

Elko County High School Senior Snow Session with Lindsay Syme Photography

It’s Monday, it’s spring break, and we have snow!  If you can’t beat it, join it!  Elko County is notorious for a snowy spring break.  Last year we had about 2 feet fall in one day!  Sometimes photographers need to embrace this weather and go for it!  We battle it all; rain, snow, wind and MORE WIND.  Thank goodness I have the most amazing clients who power through it all!  You would never guess how windy it was by looking at this image!  A snazzy little hood was the fashion statement of the day that made the weather look tame and pleasant as opposed to an angry beast!  Check out this image from an Elko County High School Senior Snow Session…

Fall Family Photos In Northeast Nevada

Northeast Nevada Fall Family Photography

Many Northeast Nevadans are excited during the fall season as they take part in their hunt for deer and elk.  I get excited to hunt as well, although my hunt is altogether different.  I hunt for the perfect location to take my clients and their families for a colorful photo session.  I am always looking for bright fall colors.  This spot happened to be one of my favorite places this year!
